Strategy[edit | edit source]

Venomancer is too underwhelming for its effect and body for 5 mana in Constructed, with no immediate impact to the board and susceptible to silences. However it is a reasonable card in arena for board control. Its attack does not matter much when attacking minions but its 5 health allows it to take hits or two. However, Trogg Gloomeater is a better alternative as a Poisonous 5 drop because its Taunt means it can prevent a minion from ignoring it and trading favourably with other minions.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Summon
I spread the master's will.
Attack
A plague upon you!

Lore[edit | edit source]

The Venomancer is a nerubian, specifically a nerubian vizier.

From Wowpedia:

The half-spider, half-humanoid viziers once served as advisors, sorcerers, and seers to the mighty nerubian spiderlords. But in the aftermath of the War of the Spider, the tables turned, and in the vacuum of their collapsed society, the cunning viziers rose to power. Utilizing their sorcery and high intelligence, the viziers have emerged as the rulers of the Nerubians' underground kingdom.
