Twig of the World Tree

This is a weapon for the Gorebelly decks out there. With this and one or two Rak Skyfuries, the damage can really pile on. It doesn't really stand out in any other decks at the moment, but we'll see what Through the Dark Portal brings us.

Limited- 1.5/5- Not enough Rak's out there to make this shine.
Constructed- 3.5/5
Casual- 4/5
Raid- 3/5
 
Aganej2 Twig of the World Tree (2/2)

This is interesting, resource for 4 dmg in a swing. I guess this is cool for a deck that needs little mana and it can put out resources in the early game then pay out the mana during the mid to late game. 4 dmg is a lot to chizzle. The thing is that those resources won’t come back if you sac them to the twig so you have to use them up in some way so that the sac is justified. As long as you play this card smart, you’ll be very well as far as stacking up dmg.

Constructed: 2/5 (use very wisely, a big skill card)
Sealed: 1.5/5 (many uses for resources here, not so likely to put damage to that)
Raid: 2/5 (in this format a weapon is a weapon, and they don’t make much difference to the dragon)

I like my resources. Thus, I don’t like this card. Imo, there are plenty of awesomely powerful two-handed weapons that will be a lot more useful than this. There are weapons that don’t need to destroy one of your valuable resources just to have a zero strike cost: Arcanite Reaper and Lord Alexander’s Battle Axe. The low play cost of 3 may seem like an advantage here but that’s sort of negated by the fact that you’ll be destroying resources to use the power. I say if you want cheap damage early go with Krol Blade, and then you can use a shield too.

A verry nice card for late game when you don't have much need for your resources, I personally would pay the cost early game as well as useing cards that would lower the cost of striking with weapons. but there are also better weapons out there to use

Barone Twig of the World Tree - 2/2/07

After reading this card I now understand why some of the players in my area are drooling over the prospect of actually getting it. The obvious use would be include this in a muti-attacking Warrior or Paladin deck, both factions have the tools to produce some fairly solid contenders.

Being out blow a resource can hurt, especially to simply lower the cost of striking with a weapon for 1.
But say combine it with Edgemaster Guard to lower the cost by another 1 and then play Heroic Strike. Your looking at a weapon that does 6 damage a hit at the cost of 1 resource.

Not to shabby, in my opinion.

Of course being able to attack more than once a turn also becomes an art form in itself :-)

Sealed: 3/5

Twig of the World Tree

 

Sealed/Draft: 5 out of 5

Constructed: 4 out of 5

 

Let me begin by first saying that this is my favorite

weapon from the entire game. I personally play the

Twig in my Druid deck, and I’ve never looked back.

This is a great weapon, with great stats, for a great

cost. There are not many weapons out there right now

which allow you to consistently hit for 4 damage,

especially when you can do it for nearly nothing. The

trick with the Twig though is you need to know when to

use it. The best use for it is on the defense. Let’s

say you are tapped out, and your druid and weapon are

untapped. When your opponent goes to smack you with a

creature you can retaliate with the Twig by

sacrificing a resource. This card is definitely a card

with a lot of tricks behind it, but you need to plan

accordingly. Never use this card “willy nilly”,

because you can easily find yourself at two resources

or less late game (trust me, I’ve done it before).

 
Unearthed Name Twig of the World Tree

Ahhhhh, the twig of the world tree. It has one of the biggest attack with 4 atk, and also the highest strike cost. However, you choose to destroy one of your resources to make the strike cost gone. Yup that means swinging a 4 ATK weapon for free by destroying your resource. Vidianto Wijaya use this weapon for his Gorebelly deck in a first attempt to kill onyxia, but he and and his team only managed to get Onyxia until stage 3. Twig is a good weapon for the cost and damage ratio. Its downside is its hefty strike cost, and its alternate cost. Unless as a finisher, this weapon will probably won’t see much of play.

Constructed 2.5/5
Limited 2/5
