Strategy[]

Imprisoned Observer is both a preemptive LegacyConsecration and a free LegacyChillwind Yeti, at the cost of paying 3 mana upfront and waiting two turns. This effect is a powerful board clear that can immediately swing the board against Zoo decks. Since the damage is free the turn it activates, it can be played alongside cards like LegacyFrostbolt, Descent of DragonsArcane Breath, or even LegacyFlamestrike to deal with targets above 2 health.

Your opponent knows the effect is coming, so can play around it by holding off on board floods until the Observer awakens. This can also be to your advantage, stalling the game until you draw or have enough mana for your other board clears.

In late game, Imprisoned Observer synergizes well with Galakrond's AwakeningThe Amazing Reno next turn, as his Battlecry will not remove the Observer — thus clearing the enemy board, acting as a deterrent against them building up a new one, and giving you a 4/5 (albeit with summoning sickness) already on the board the next turn after you play The Amazing Reno.
