Inspired by SpySat’s Orc Guide, found here, I wanted to do something similar but much more limited in scope. I want to look at what I call the three MC Hammer Heroes of the Human Race.
That’s right, my boys Dragonhelm Knight, Wizard, and Hound Master. Why are they the MC Hammer Heroes? Because with these cards in play the undead CAN’T TOUCH THIS.
Most races will have only one of these types of units, if any. For the elves, it would be the Tree Whisperer. For the trolls, the Bridge Witch, but not for the Humans. No, humanity gets three.
And not just three, but the three BEST ones. With these three cards at your disposal you literally have the ability to pull, stop, or push undead. You’ve got them coming, staying and going. You can direct the undead like traffic. FIGHT undead? Please, just walk around them!
Let’s start with the dragonhelm knight. It costs him TWO mana to pull an immortal horde and as soon as the effect ends, he’s ready to cast again. His speed of 3 means he can outrun pretty much any undead army. These are COMMON units and are often required parts of your deck! They give them to you FOR FREE! Insane!
You might say “oh but the Bridge Witch can pull all the zombies in 2 leagues for 24 hours” and sure, that’s pretty good. But it costs 10 mana and her speed is 6. She can’t kite all hordes and so she’s best used to lure zombies into a swamp for a Marsh Warden trap.
But with a Dragonhelm Knight, any pesky horde coming your way can just be kited around, then dragged wherever you want indefinitely.
Next is the Wizard.
Wizard is everything good about the Elves in one unit! Noble race my foot, this one old bearded dude is both a tree whisperer and an archer, and with a faster refresh!
With enough mana, he can freeze an army permanently. Oh no are you about to be attacked? Make a wizard, fool. Then have a Dragonhelm Knight walk around them and drag them away!
But MOST importantly, my all time FAVORITE human unit…
4 mana cost, effects a unit for 12 hours, restores every 12 hours… if you have a Hound Master you can go where you please. You can literally part the Red Sea, stroll right into zombieland with a small army, and one by one just burn the Blight away.
The humans are SWIMMING in horde management units, two of which have such a cheap mana cost that you literally have no excuse to ever be attacked. Honestly how are there even human zombies to begin with? Who were the idiots who fell asleep behind the wheel and forgot to just ask politely for the encroaching horde to leave?
