Notes[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Mosh'Ogg Announcer has reasonable stats for its cost, but this minion's true power lies in its unique ability. It can potentially shrug off attacks, making it far stickier in minion combat than its 5 health would imply. It's particularly sturdy against wide boards that need multiple attacks to kill it, giving its effect more chances to activate. Mosh'Ogg works best in aggro decks, where the attacks can be deflected to your hero, which doesn't usually matter. On the other hand, the more minions you have, the likelier it is that the attacks are deflected to a friendly character, and vice versa - this makes Mosh'Ogg strategically superior for decks that build their boards tall rather than wide.

The minion is best in an aggro vs aggro matchup. Its high damage will threaten the opponent, but its ability will make trading into it potentially costly.

However, Mosh'Ogg Announcer is cripplingly weak to spell removal, where its ability can't protect it. You can use a Snapjaw Shellfighter to prolong the minion's survival.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

The Mosh'Ogg tribe of ogres live in the jungles of Stranglethorn Vale. They are rumored to be in possession of a powerful stone that may be of use to the Horde.

This particular Mosh'Ogg ogre serves as the announcer for the Rastakhan's Rumble event in the Gurubashi Arena.[1]
