Strategy[edit | edit source]
A very situational card because of its high mana cost and the fact that it destroys all minions on the board, including your own. Ideally played when destroying your opponent's minions outweighs the loss of your own. Losses can also be offset by having Deathrattle minions on your side of the battlefield, such as Piloted Shredder or Harvest Golem, allowing you to recover quickly from the wipe, or even better to intentionally activate your own Nerubian Egg.
Also an excellent card to play when your opponent has a small or empty hand, immediately before playing Lord Jaraxxus. This can serve very well for buying the warlock time to build their new offensive, strongly increasing their chances of victory.
Most control warlock decks can justify running one or two copies of twisting nether in their deck, as it is an obvious fit. While it has little to no synergy with the handlock archetype, the most typical archetype in association with control warlock, the mere power level of twisting nether makes it an excellent pick for control warlock decks, and in many cases will turn a game around when played.
Twisting nether should be played while keeping a good game sense in mind, such as keeping track of approximately how many valuable minions your opponent should have in their hand and deck. If you feel like your opponent might have many valuable minions left, try to refrain from playing twisting nether if you can afford it. It goes without saying that, if you are low on health and can not afford to take lose more HP, then using twisting nether to clear the board is a must do.
Lore[edit | edit source]
- The Twisting Nether is a dimension separate from, but intertwined with, parts of the primary material dimension. It is not to be confused with the Great Dark, though there seems to be some overlap.
- It is an ethereal dimension of chaotic magics that connected the myriad worlds of the universe, and home to an infinite number of malefic, demonic beings who sought only to destroy life and devour the energies of the living universe.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Twisting Nether is known for its dramatic audiovisual animation when cast.
