Description[edit | edit source]

As Abyssian, you excel at removing big threats and can generate many small Minions, while also having great late game threats. Deathwatch can power up your Minions, deal damage while healing you, or generate Wraithlings. Wraithlings are 1/1 tokens that can be used as sacrifices for powerful spells and cause more deaths on the battlefield to fuel Deathwatch effects. Additionally, you boast a wide range of removal spells and area control. Although you are high on damage and battlefield control, your creatures are not very efficient.

Strengths[edit | edit source]

  • Your battlefield advantages can be quickly converted into damage with Deathwatch.
  • Numerous damage spells and Rush minions allow you to be very aggressive.
  • You possess many different forms of Minion removal.
  • Moderate amounts of "vampire" healing that damages your opponent.
  • You can use a variety of different deck archetypes and strategies.

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • Difficult to come back after you have no more Minions on the battlefield.
  • Your removal is expensive, requiring a sacrifice of your own Minions or a lot of Mana.
  • Your Minions are not very efficient and rely on Deathwatch to gain effectiveness.
  • Difficulty against Dispel; your Deathwatch and Shadow Creep are both Dispellable.
  • Low cost creatures that fuel Deathwatch are very frail and survive mainly by outnumbering your opponents, causing Area of Effect damage to be highly effective against you.
