Doomguard — Warlock Card

Last updated on Jun 03, 2015 at 21:46 by Sottle 9 comments

Table of Contents

Doomguard is a Warlock-only minion. This card can be obtained from expert packs. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Doomguard is a very volatile minion with an extremely severe drawback. However, Warlocks have two ways to mitigate the downside altogether. Firstly, they can empty their hand before playing Doomguard and then refill their hand using their Hero Power. Secondly, they can use Voidcaller to pull Doomguard into play while bypassing the discard effect altogether.

2. Constructed Play

Doomguard is a staple in numerous Warlock decks. It is found both in aggressive decks such as Zoo that aim to have a small hand size at all times, as well as in more Demon focused synergy decks that try to pull it into play using Voidcaller.

3. Arena

In Arena, Doomguard is a high value card. It can be drafted even higher than usual in a deck that either features a very aggressive low curve of minions or multiple Voidcallers. In a deck that plays a slower curve with more late-game minions then you should consider passing Doomguard, since the discard effect might end up being too costly.
