Strategy[edit | edit source]

While Omega Devastator's stats are reasonable for a 4 Mana minion, it is at its strongest in the late game once you've accrued 10 Mana, as it is then effectively able to annihilate all but the sturdiest of minions. As such, unless facing an incredibly aggressive opponent, it's generally best to hold onto this minion until you've hit the 10 Mana requirement.

Being a Mech, Omega Devastator synergizes with all Mech-related cards. Dr. Boom, Mad Genius will give Omega Devastator Rush to allow it additional field control as soon as it's played; in addition, Delivery Drone has a chance of Discovering Omega Devastator, as does Omega Assembly. When available as a Discovery option in the late game, Omega Devastator will almost certainly be one of your best choices.

Being a Mech also means that Omega Devastator synergizes with all Magnetic minions. Unfortunately, though, its damage being a Battlecry means that you won't be able to take advantage of Zilliax to instantly gain 10 Health via Lifesteal. Still, Zilliax's Rush effect means that on a lucky turn you could play Omega Assembly, discover Omega Devastator and Zilliax, and use your remaining 9 Mana to destroy a minion, attack another minion, and gain 7 Health while clearing out your opponent's threats.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Omega Devastator's card art was originally created for Omega Defender from the Boomsday Project set. Omega Defender is not classified as a Mech minion, but during internal playtesting of The Boomsday Project, Team 5 suspected that the card's original artwork could be confused for a Mech, which would sometimes lead to misplays. Community feedback following the public reveal of Omega Defender confirmed these suspicions, and in the interest of clarity, the team made the decision to replace Omega Defender's card art with another piece that placed greater emphasis on the goblin pilot inside the mech. However, the team also stated that the change was made purely for gameplay reasons and had nothing to do with the quality of the original art, which they agreed was "equally awesome", and that they'd look forward to using the original piece in another way in the future.[1] With the release of Omega Devastator in Rise of Shadows, this eventually came to pass.
