Warrax's ability is from what I've seen, the
cheapest of all the heroes. For just one and
flipping him you get protector this turn. It
certainly can be useful, I don't know how big warrax
decks will be tho. Some warrior abilities are pretty
cool, maybe combining him Galway Steamwhistle to
ready a weapon and warrax, probably be good to pair
him up with Arcanite Reaper for some massive damage
and be able to strike with a weapon to defend once
you've used Warrax's ability wouldn't be bad.
Definately should be able to do so also with a
strike cost of 0 and Galway to ready it.
Overall I think there are better heroes, but Warrax
isn't awful. I do think the other Warrior hero tho
is probably the better bet right now.
Welcome to a new week of reviews. This week we are
looking at three heroes. First up we have Warrax.
Warrax is an alliance warrior with 30 health points,
which is tie for the most in the game. Now in the
big scheme of things, that’s only 5 more than the
lowest. But add in the fact that Warrax can equip
armor with the best armor value on in, you can
increase his survivability to insane levels. Throw
on a Draconian Deflector (4 armor), Lionheart Helm
(2 armor), and Invulnerable Mail (6 armor) and
that’s like an extra 12 health points a turn!
Get a weapon in his hand, like Arcanite Reaper, and
Warrax can start tearing down opposing allies and
heroes. Once you get a weapon in his hand, the pain
can really start.
His flip ability is average. If you have an ally you
want to keep on the field, pay 1, protect against
the fatal attack, hopefully block with some armor,
and your precious ally stays alive.
And of course he’s a warrior, so you can use all the
warrior abilities with him. Demoralizing shout is
nice to help keep the damage down from opposing
allies, execute can instantly kill any ally with
damage on it, and Cleave can deal some serious
damage to two allies. I don’t really like the
Protection only ability Last Stand. It could help
you survive death, but it’s cost of discarding two
cards at the start of your turn is insane.
Overall, I give Warrax a solid 4/5 all around. He
can equip the best armor and weapons, average flip
effect, crappy Protection only ability.
Hi there, you can call me DanHibikii, I've been
playing TCGs for years, I don't play the online
game, and I'm not really one for introductions, so
welcome to Hero Week.
To kick the new Card Review week off, we start with
the demo deck Alliance Warrior, Warrax
Hero - Alliance Dwarf Warrior
Talent - Protection
Proffesions - Blacksmithing, Mining
Health - 30
(1, flip) -> Warrax has protector this turn
Today's card, Warrax, shows just what warriors
should play like in the TCG - aggro, the reason for
this is that the 'tanking' ability of Warrax is
near-useless in the late game period, which is when
many other classes will begin to overpower the brute
strength of warrior decks, unfortunately Warrax
tries to extend the game, which could be a death
sentence against a bad match-up for constructed.
for sealed and draft, however, Warrax is not such a
bad choice, the generic lack of protectors and much
greater importance of allies in these formats makes
forcing your opponents to hit your hero directly a
powerful play, plus the big fleshy health stat of
warriors will stay around to haunt your opponent for
longer than what they would like.
At the end of the day, Warrax seems to want to be a
'Jack of all Trades'
but, quite frankly, he isn't very good at any of
Constructed - Unless you are a beginner or want to
use last stand, go for gorebelly - 2/5
Protecting your allies can be vital here, and a lack
of weapons and armour can be somewhat offset by the
defensive traits of warrax - 4/5
Draft - Similar to
above, but your card pool might make other heroes
more viable options - 3/5
Artwork - his hammer is
scary, but his moustache is scarier - 3/5
I'm DanHibiki, and Saikyo on
This week we look at some of the heroes you get to
play as in the TCG.
First off is Warrax, the dwarven warrior.
At a whopping 30 health, he certainly shows the
vitality and strength warriors have. But is he a
good hero? I would say he is decent, if only because
of the high health. His flip ability, which
basically says flip him, he gains protector, is
something to be desired. Sure protector ensures he
keeps one of your allies alive, but you had better
have some good armor on him to be able to keep him
from taking damage. Luckily that's exactly what
warriors do, is keep a steady supply of armor so
they wont get banged up so easily. However there are
other cards that give him protector, so more than
likely you won't be flipping Warrax very much at
all. Still, with the right armor he can protect one
of your much needed allies and still come out
relativly unscathed. As I come to find out about
anything warrior, it's all about the equipment, and
Warrax might just give you an excuse to use it. Your
opponent decides to attack one of your allies, you
flip Warrax and force him to be attacked, which you
use the lovely Arcanine Reaper to cut away your
oppnent's ally. Not to bad if I do say so myself.
Still, there are other things that can give him
protector so the only thing that anyone can really
benefit from him is his high health.
Hey guys, this is
my first COTD so I hope you like it.
Looking at Warrax
I see two things, cheap flip ability and alot of
What I want to
talk about is not neccesarily the card itself,
but rather the
cards that you can
use with it to make up a sick deck.
Warriors have a great strategy, keep your allies
alive and make
them better, while
at the same time weakening your opponents
hero/ally. With a few different abilities that
give Warrax protector, and the fact that he has
such an large number of possibilities when it
comes to armor, Warrax can take alot of hits
before he goes down.
I personally like
Warrax better than Gorebelly because I feel that
allies are more
suited for a protection hero. Seva Shadowdancer
Exaust and pay X
to heal X from target hero or ally- is one of my
allies because of
her ability to stay alive and keep everyone else
alive as well.
With other healing allies and protector allies,
you've got a
deck that can
basically outlast any other.
I don't even need
to explain how great it is that Warriors can use
than any other heroes in the game.
I give warrax's
flip ability a 3 because its got such a low cost
and can help
you stall until
you get more protector allies/abilities.
Overall, I give
warrax a 4, I think Warriors are going to be
real tough to beat
in this first set
if they are played right. It might just be
because i have a
60 Warrior in the
online game, but I really like this card
