Chaos Gazer is an epic warlock minion card, from the Galakrond's Awakening set.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Two copies of regular Chaos Gazer are obtained by defeating Galakrond in Galakrond's Awakening's Chapter 4 of E.V.I.L. campaign.

Once the regular version has been obtained, both regular and golden versions can be crafted and disenchanted.

Golden Chaos Gazer 1600 400

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Chaos Gazer's effect chooses a random card in your opponent's hand that they will have enough mana to play next turn, and places an Enchantment on it. If that card isn't played, it is discarded from their hand at the end of the turn.
  • If the card is played then returned to hand, it will no longer have the Enchantment even if it was returned the same turn.
  • The effect does not check if the card fulfills any requirements to be played. For example, it can affect a Shadow Word: Death in hand when there are no minions in play with 5 or more attack.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Chaos Gazer is a highly effective disruption tool, providing great stats for its cost. At its very worst, Chaos Gazer places a medium threat on the board and your opponent plays the card they were going to play anyway. Better results include forcing your opponent to choose wasting resources like removal or Zephrys the Great or discarding it, or forcing your opponent to play off curve. The best result is forcing your opponent to waste a combo card like Bloodsworn Mercenary, Sathrovarr, or Flobbidinous Floop.

If your opponent has been holding one card for most of the game, this might be a cue they have a combo piece or key card in their hand. If you specifically want to disrupt a combo, waiting until the late game is the best bet for hitting something important.

Chaos Gazer can also be played before playing Loatheb or Boompistol Bully, potentially targeting a key card in their hand and making it completely unplayable, guaranteeing its removal from the game.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Choice is an illusion.
Right into my trap!
