DH5: 022 - Annie, The Dark Child
Looks like things are going to be heating up! It's that pint-sized pyromaniac Annie! ready to rain down doom and destruction along with terrifying teddies!
Annie's design is a pretty interesting one. My favorite aspect of it is her giant stuffed bear golem who lumbers around and enters from the sky as a crazy flaming meteor. Her voice is like a concentrated ray of cuteness that gets a little overwhelming after about her third line. The firepowers are pretty neat and she skips along the battlefield instead of walking along it like a regular champion. Annie's always been a favorite from a community standpoint and they seem to be eagerly waiting for a teenager Annie to make it to the field.
Game wise she has one mean initiator, the giant bear named Tibbers that can crack down and stun everybody in a big blast of fire. The only time I ended up playing her was in an ARAM game and even with that unorthodox playstyle, I could use her pretty well. I also remember back when Leviathan would give you 2 stacks just for assisting and every caster in the game would buy the thing. Annie players would pick up a Leviathan and become unstoppable. Any Annie adorers out there? Let that pipsqueak know you care with some comments!
