Ozan is a playable legend, released alongside the Closed Beta. His strategy is focused on attacking the rival and acquiring gold, commonly using cards such as Skeleton Champion and Ling, the Assassin.

Background[edit | edit source]

Ozan is an accomplished thief, archer, and bard, and a Signature Hero, featuring in various desert quests in RuneScape 3. He was born in Al Kharid and raised in the great city of Varrock, where he picked up his skills of thievery and agility. He often tells stories of "his" escapades, preferring to sensationalize them rather than provide accurate details. He is often driven by emotion and a desire for fame rather than doing what is right.

Playstyle[edit | edit source]

Ozan's themes are gold manipulation, stealing, and cards with double-edged effects. His cards grant him access to more gold than any other legend, and Ozan is capable of stealing any stat in the game except for health (health stealing being Vanescula's specialty). Ozan can use his thievery to upset a player's chapter curve, such as using Al Kharid Warrior to steal a rival's gold and causing them to forfeit a support card they can no longer afford. Sometimes theft can ruin a rival's entire adventure, like Ozan playing Highwayman to help himself to a nicely buffed weapon from Linza that she had spent several turns to assemble.

Ozan's strategies are either very aggressive or gold intensive. He excels at griefing and tempo-based plays. Ozan's signature gold-earning card is the Amascut Templeguard, which doubles his current gold value. With enough gold, Ozan can convert his vast wealth into burst damage using Ling, the Assassin or Lady Raven. Despite the potential here, these cards have high risk and are too easy to counter with Redbeard Frank.

Aggressive cards for Ozan include Skeleton Champion, Snap Shot, Deadshot and Desert Snake. These can turn out a lot of damage in short order.

In a more control style, Ozan has one of the most powerful creatures in the game, Hope Devourer, and Dragon Set is possibly the single best equipment card in the game as well. Just by sustaining through damage and focusing on a few select counters, Ozan can hit these power cards late in the game and dominate his opponent.

The underpinning of Ozan's success is his ability to make tempo plays. For example, Safe Spot has zero gold cost and removes a whopping five health from his next creature. Pyramid Plunder grants 4 gold; Donation draws 3 cards, and Rogues' Den grants 4 gold. All of these cards have zero gold cost associated with them, which means Ozan can always play them for a big effect. The tradeoff, rather than gold, is usually in a discard effect or a significant benefit to his rival. Ozan pays a price for his efficiency, but it can pay off immensely depending on his luck. The same can be said for a perfectly timed thievery play to grief an opponent at a crucial point in their strategy and drastically affect the game's course. Ozan lives on the edge of chance, a dice roll away from an easy win or certain defeat.

Counters[edit | edit source]

The best counters to Ozan are aggressive burst or strong sustain. Ozan doesn't supplement his defensive stats naturally, so if he gets greedy and takes damage playing cards like Amascut Templeguard, Desert Snake, or Skeleton Champion, he may run low on health. This makes burst damage lethal against Ozan, such as Earth Blast or Hurl Weapon.

If you cannot beat Ozan with aggression, you may be able to best him in the arena. Because Ozan doesn't typically stack much armor or base attack throughout the adventure, sustaining through his damage can be viable. Against slower Ozan decks, your best bet is to take advantage of his lower armor and OTK him.

Griefing Ozan is also very strong. Weakening his attack, buffing his creatures, or hitting his gold can all be useful, because many of his key enablers deal punishing damage or cost high gold. For example, Skeleton Champion deals 8 damage. Hope Devourer has a whopping 15 health and 7 attack. Highwayman or Dragon Set cost 8 and 13 gold, respectively. Buffing one of these creatures or playing a Redbeard Frank to reset his gold accumulation can be crushing setbacks to Ozan snowballing a victory.

Most of all, watch out for Ozan's grief. An Ozan player absolutely relishes playing a Black Marketeer in slot 1 in the first chapter. Always expect an Al Kharid Warrior or even a Bob the Cat if you can tell it's a grief Ozan. If you see Ozan racking up tons of gold, he's up to no good. Be careful of playing close to the line against Ozan. At least, try to stay up 2 gold at all times.
