Challenge the mighty black dragon Onyxia with your fantasy heroes in the World of Warcraft card game! Here’s Gary’s game review.

The World of Warcraft Trading Card Game from Upper Deck lets you bring the fantasy adventure of the hugely popular World of Warcraft video game to life as a card game. You create your favorite fantasy heroes as decks of cards and battle against your friends. But now you can do more! The Onyxia’s Lair Raid Deck brings the power and fury of the mighty black dragon Onyxia to the card game and lets you and your friends battle her as a team with this special deck. Here’s the 411 with Gary’s card game review.

World of Warcraft – Challenging Onyxia to Battle!

Most World of Warcraft card game decks let you battle as a fantasy hero – an elf archer, dwarf warrior, human wizard or even an orc or troll. The Onyxia’s Lair Raid Deck is basically a super-powerful monster for a bunch of decks to challenge to a team battle. One person plays as Onyxia, everybody else plays their best deck and tries to flatten her.

World of Warcraft – Awesome Teamwork and Fun

Battling Onyxia with a bunch of your friends is a blast! The action is fast, fun and all the hero-squishing makes you realize how powerful Onyxia is. The deck is packed with cool cards for Onyxia to unleash, including the powerful Burnination (TROGDOR!!!) and a bunch of special event cards to mix things up.

World of Warcraft – Getting Munched by Onyxia

Unfortunately, after a few games it’s pretty easy to figure out how to beat the Onyxia’s Lair Raid Deck with just four or five players battling. And, without a bunch of friends, there’s no way to avoid being barbequed dragon lunch so it’s really only for special occasions.

World of Warcraft – Onyxia’s Lair Raid Deck Summary

The Onyxia’s Lair Raid Deck is a great way for you and about five friends to have a blast battling a powerful dragon with your strongest heroes. But, it’s more of a party game. Try to talk your local game store into opening one so you and your friends can challenge it!

Onyxia’s Lair Raid Deck Thumbs Up:

Onyxia’s Lair Raid Deck Thumbs Down:
