Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Any Rush-granted minion can also trigger E.T.C., God of Metal's effect when attacking (For example, any minion granted Rush by Animated Broomstick).[1]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

At the baseline, E.T.C., God of Metal can be used in a midrange Warrior deck to poke at the opponent while controlling the board with Rush minions. It has particular synergy with Bumper Car.

E.T.C. can more commonly be used as an OTK enabler, or at the very least a card capable of high burst to end games. Start with Pen Flinger to cheaply damage E.T.C., then copy him with Bloodsworn Mercenary. Play Animated Broomstick to give your minions Rush, trading one minion in to free board space, then copy E.T.C again with a second Mercenary. letting each attack deal 6 damage to the opponent. At the baseline, this combo will deal at least 34 damage, and can deal even more if all three E.T.C.s are able to attack without dying. This does require your opponent to have enough targets to attack into, however.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Summon
Woo! Let's melt some faces!
Attack
Let's shred!
