Strategy[edit]

Venomancer is too underwhelming for its effect and body for 5 mana in Constructed, with no immediate impact to the board and susceptible to silence effects. However its low attack value does not matter much when trading but while its 5 health allows it to take multiple hits. However, Trogg Gloomeater is a better alternative as a poisonous 5 drop because its Taunt ability means it can prevent a minion from ignoring it and trading favourably with other minions.

In Arena[edit]

Venomancer is a reasonable card in Arena. Its fairly resilient will allow it to trade multiple small minions, while it can potentially eat up hard removal in some circumstances.

Quotes[edit]

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

Lore[edit]

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.
