This card is going to be the biggest HS meme besides Purify mark my words.
Dude it's in the meta
Did anyone else not notice the bomb strapped to it until now?
I feel like I'm the only one.
You didn't notice it because it wasn't there. Blizzard changed the art when we weren't looking. This is the art everyone saw when Ticking Abomination was first revealed:
See? No clock.
Let's all run N'Zoth decks with this dude.
The play sound is really obscure, but "I don't feel (so) good" is the last thing said by the insane fat guy with a bomb in his belly that the Joker detonates to get out of the Police Station in The Dark Knight.
Here, at the 1:07 mark, that's the guy that blows up later : https://youtu.be/fMoqxLG9_qY?t=1m7s
the card is now at least playable
You are paying 7 mana and you still need to deal 6 damage (it has 5 attack so it probably will kill any minion you attack with) so that combo is really stupid.
I mean, it's not the worst idea to play it, power overwhelming to attack with it, then treachery it. At the end of your turn it'd probably mean a board clear for your opponent.
Well, at least Piloted Sky Golem has its own doomsayer now for wild.
I think using this card does not target standard (or maybe even wild) but more the PvE content / adventures that we will see coming.
For example, this card is a good way to get rid of your own board - which is useful when your AI opponent spawns minions that are bad for you.
In combination with Moat Lurker you can even have more self-sided board clears.
So I like that Blizzard is "printing" such cards, it's more a very special tech card. We will find out how useful it is in the future.
I kind of compare this card to the new Mountainfire Armor for Warrior. You want to force your opponent to trade into it or risk it getting repetitive face damage or value trades. Everyone complaining that you will blow up your own board must also be the people that play Doomsayer when they have a big board. It's common sense that you play this card as a comeback mechanic when you are behind.
Comparing this to Hungry Dragon. In hungry dragon, your opponent is usually given a 2/1 minion on average and it technically has charge since the dragon will probably be played on turn 4. Ticking Abomination is not so much a benefit to your opponent as it is a large presence. If you play this with a full board of minions, then you deserve to lose anyways (that would be like someone playing Doomsayer with 6 friendly minions). Overall it's okay in arena and can help swing the game by placing down a huge threat that causes the enemy to use Fireball or other removal. Also very similar to Corrupted Healbot since it is a high-stat minion with a drawback that can hurt you later.
In constructed it sucks obviously, unless somehow you are create some weird god-tier Purify or Evolve deck.
