"Does double damage when attacking an enemy that has no attacks."
100% Chance of activation upon successful attack
|Top 3 Rulesets||Bottom 3 Rulesets|
|Noxious Fumes - Rulesets in which your opponents are likely to play cards with high health and no attacks are the ideal space for oppress. A great counter for monsters with the Scavenger ability and no attack.||Super Sneak - Direct attacks away from your cleansed monster in the first position - allowing them to maintain their health and damage your opponents tank!|
|Target Practice - All ranged and magic attack monsters have the Snipe ability - if you choose to use a monster with Tank Heal, ensure they are protected!||Back to Basics - Monsters lose all abilities and any melee monster with Reach will only be allowed to attack from the first position.|
|Little League - Determine whether using a healing monster within this ruleset will be the most beneficial strategy. With mama costs under 4, these monsters may not last long enough to be healed. However, you can take the reverse and throw off your opponent by using heal!||Melee Mayhem/Going the Distance/Wands Out - these rulesets disqualify monsters with no attack rendering oppress useless.|
|Top 3 Abilities||Bottom 3 Abilities|
|Piercing - If Melee or Ranged attack damage is in more that the target's Armor, the excess will damage the target's Health||Thorns/Return Fire/Magic Reflect - Be aware that your monster with oppress can still take retaliatory damage.|
|Weapons Training - If a monster has no attack without weapons training, oppress will still do double damage to them.||Void Armor/Void/Shield - Magic attacks hit this Monster's armor before its Health. In combination with Shield, it will take many strikes to fell this monster!|
|Snipe- at times, opponents may place monsters with no attack in the second position to draw sniping fire. Rebuke these efforts with Oppress!||Stun - a stunned monster can not do damage to any opponent.|
- Oppress works against non attack monsters even if they are using the weapons training ability.
