- Iksar had a few comments – Equality at (3) mana in our playtesting didn’t really solve this. The change to (4) was actually very jarring to us, but we wanted to try playtesting it in current and future environments anyway. After all those games, we felt like it was a reasonable option at (4) in control archetypes (now and in the future) but less reasonable in aggressive decks. That ideally where we’d like most cards to be, so (4) ended up being where we landed. If we thought (3) removed it from being in all paladin archetypes for the foreseeable future but Odd Paladin would get better in the short term, we would have just done that.
- We like Control Paladin, I expect it to do just fine in the future. We’ve been playtesting a lot of the first set of this year with Equality at (4) and there are still powerful Control Paladin archetypes.
How it Works
- Choose a class and build your own deck.
- At the end of each turn, all your minions have their cost, attack, and health combined into one creature – Void Singularity.
- The maximum mana cost of Void Singularity is 10.
- Cards like Ethereal Arcanist which do something at the end of turn, won’t work here as they get merged into the Void Singularity before they can use their effects.
- Deathrattle effects work as they should and can be a great way the flood the board for your next turn.
- Removal and Freeze are huge in this brawl. The Void Singularity can build up frighteningly fast, so get rid of it!
- Another neat thing one could do is return the Void to their opponent’s hand through a card like Sap. It effectively slows them down an entire turn.
