Strategy[edit | edit source]
The cost of the Flame Imp's low mana cost is paid for with the player's health. As a 1 mana 3/2 minion, the Flame Imp provides the warlock with a cheap alternative for early game pressure and burst. Consider the fact that you can drop this on turn 1 and on turn 2 you buff it with Demonfire to make it a 5/4, making for very good early pressure.
A staple pick for aggressive warlock decks, the Flame Imp is ideally played on turn 1, often alongside a Voidwalker, shielding it from attack. Flame Imp generally loses its value as the game progresses, as mana becomes more plentiful and Health generally less so.
Quotes[edit | edit source]
Lore[edit | edit source]
- The imps are a mischievous and nefarious race of small, fiendish creatures. The simplest of the summoning spells a warlock can learn is that of the imp. Before they are imparted to this, they must prove that they have the necessary magical and physical ability. Though it lacks physical strength, it possesses powers and a cleverness that serve warlocks well. All imps however are afraid of rainbows.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
