"I AM A TURTLE" - Mal'Ganis


> Low cost sticky minions such as Voidwalker Haunted Creeper and Nerubian Egg combine well with buffs like Abusive Sergeant and Power Overwhelming to create favorable trades and dominate the board in the early turns. Knife Juggler plus Imp-losion can turn a game around. Getting a free Doomguard or Mal'Ganis from Voidcaller is back breaking. Power Overwhelming with Void Terror gives some free wins. Sylvanas Power Overwhelming can Mind Control an important minion. Imp-losion gives Sea Giant a nice discount. A common way to close out a game is Power Overwhelming plus Doomguard for a 9 damage burst as early as turn 6.


  • STRONG vs.
    • Druid, Control Warrior, Mech Mage
  • WEAK vs.
    • Patron Warrior, Paladin



  • Think about swipe when trading or deciding whether to Imp-losion.

  • Use their Explosive Trap to pop your Nerubian Eggs.

  • Save a weak minion such as Nerubian Egg for their Mirror Entity.

  • Voidwalker in to Knife Juggler is a great early game in this matchup.

  • Go face. Your minions are just going to die to AoE anyways so don't bother trading. Auchenai+Circle and Lightbomb hurt their minions, too.
  • Sticky minions are important so Blade Flurry and Fan of Knives don't just tear you apart.

  • Mech Shaman doesn't often play Lightning Storm, so show no respect.

  • Ironbeak Owl is good against every kind of Warlock.

  • Play that Knife Juggler. Don't respect Fiery War Axe. Make them have it.
