Notes[edit]

Strategy[edit]

This minion is a bad pick simply for its statline - Swift Messenger is always better. The purpose of this card is to use it in a Galakrond deck that requires more Invoke. Each classes uses Devoted Maniac slightly differently, and gains better or worse value from its statline and effect.

  • Priest - Adding a random Priest minion to your hand is far too slow and inefficient for such a weak body. Time Rip, Disciple of Galakrond, and Shield of Galakrond should be sufficient enough.
  • Rogue - While slow, the random Lackey is great value. Rogue also suffers from weaker Invoke cards than the other classes, making this one more comparable.
  • Shaman - A 2/2 and 2/1 Rush is flexible and useful, able to deal 4 damage to a minion or 2 to two minions. It can also be played on the board as a worse Dragonling Mechanic.
  • Warlock - Effectively a Grim Necromancer that trades 2 health for instant damage. This makes it a great Zoo card.
  • Warrior - Good removal, comparable to Restless Mummy with one less total attack. It can also be played as a 2/2 that deals 3.

Rush keyword also synergizes with Town Crier, Countess Ashmore, and Woodcutter's Axe.
