Strategy[edit | edit source]
Attack with Ogre Brute first before committing to any plan; a miss can derail kill combos. Buff it with Taunt to take advantage of its high base stats.
Forgetful[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Forgetful
The main significance of this minion's triggered effect is that with multiple targets available, the player cannot be sure which target will be hit. This makes its use less advisable when there are high-Attack enemy minions on the board (unless they are desirable targets), as hitting them will cause the player a lot of damage. It adds further unpredictability when playing against minions such as Boom Bots.
This minion can be useful for potentially bypassing Taunt minions. For example, with 1 Taunt minion and 3 non-Taunt minions on the field, attacking the Taunt using the Brute will have a 50% of hitting the Taunt, and a 12.5% chance of hitting any one of the other targets.
This can be useful for removing protected minions, or even for dealing lethal damage to the opponent themselves. For example, with only 1 Taunt minion on the field, attacking the Taunt using the Brute will have a 50% chance of bypassing the Taunt and striking the enemy hero. In close games this chance at extra damage can allow players to close the gap.
Because of this possibility, when seeking to prevent an opponent with card such as Ogre Brute from hitting your hero while behind a taunt, it is effective to summon as many minions onto the field as possible. Each acts to decrease the likelihood of an attack reaching your hero should the minion miss its intended target.
