Lord Godfrey Reveal: The Witchwood

Recommended Posts


Warlock gets yet another board clearing card.

This Legendary minion was revealed on YouTube by Plag1at. The video is in Russian, but there are English subtitles.


Screencap from the video

First of all, I'd like to comment that it's unusual that Team 5 chose Lord Godfrey to be a Warlock minion from a lore perspective. He is listed as a Mage in Wowpedia and he is indeed wearing Cloth armor in World of Warcraft, but he's mostly seen dual wielding pistols. As a boss fight in a dungeon, he does have a skill called Cursed Bullets and he can summon Ghouls.

Anyway, moving on to the card itself, we have a better Defile with an actual 4/4 body. Plag1at smartly points out that the current Control or Cube Warlock meta decks don't actually have a 7-mana card, so Lord Godfrey fills out this gap nicely. The fact that the card isn't affected by its Battlecry is also very important: thrown in the pit against the enemy's board, Lord Godfrey can potentially win this brawl (pun intended) by clearing the field and being the sole survivor.

My only objection to this card, which may end up being its downfall, is that you can achieve the same effect with Defile and Tainted Zealot, a combo that costs only 4 mana. A 4/4 body at 7-mana isn't exactly great and with 7 mana in your tray you can do the Defile+Zealot combo AND tap or play a cheap minion like Mistress of Mixtures, Gnomeferatu, Plated Beetle, Kobold Librarian or Stonehill Defender.

What do you guys think? Keep up with the latest Witchwood news in our expansion hub.

I really don't think there will be room in cube lock for this.  The deck only has a couple tech slots as it is, and I really don't know if standard control lock (which does have the room) will survive without nzoth, or to clarify a bit, I feel like control warlock will be at least a full tier below cube lock without Nzoth, which begs the question, why wouldn't you just play cube at that point.

I think all your thought so far are viable but my first thought was, even at 7 mana it may be a late game swing, pretty much a more expensive Duskbreaker with potential more damage. As well as being 4/4 isn't huge at that time of a match but still ok and always good against priest.

Additionally looks like we get 2 minions for Warlock as class legends and none of them is a demon, so sad. And looks like they break with their usual concept, Now WL has 2 legends both minions, we know Shaman will have one Hero card. So not the same type of legends for all classes.

      You’ll now be able to see your watch time progress towards any given drop. You will no longer receive drop rewards automatically. You must instead claim the drop on the channel you’re watching or in the Drops Inventory menu on Twitch within the first 24 hours of earning it.  You will need to claim your first Twitch Drop reward BEFORE you can earn progress towards a second. Twitch users can now earn rewards before linking their Battle.net account to Twitch. Rewards will expire 7 days after they’ve been claimed if a Battle.net account has not been linked. After you’ve claimed a reward on Twitch, please make sure you’re logging into the region you’d like to receive the drop(s) on, as the first region you log into will be where we deliver your packs. It can take up to ~30 minutes to receive your reward(s) in game after claiming. You must link your Twitch and Battle.net accounts before you can receive a drop.
      Link Your Battle.net & Twitch Accounts
      You'll need to link your Twitch.tv and Battle.net accounts to receive Twitch Drops. Here's how:
      Log in or create an account on Twitch.tv. Navigate to the Settings menu by clicking your account name in the top-right corner of the home screen. Navigate to the Connections tab of the Settings menu. Find the Battle.net section, then follow the instructions after selecting a region and clicking Connect. When connecting accounts, be sure that you're currently logged into the Battle.net account on which you'd like to receive your rewards. More Just Around the Corner
