This is the easiest/cheapest way to summon a Herald of Oblivion using Unravel Existence.
You will need:
Turn 0: If there is no one with Nihil, cast Netherblast to trigger it. Otherwise skip.
Turn 1: Cast Dark Whispers on the enemy with Nihil. (1 stack.)
Turn 2: Cast Cacophony. Cacophony naturally applies an extra stack of Dark Whispers as well. (3 stacks.)
Turn 3: Cast Prophecy of Madness/Ruin with Twofold Curse active to apply the other as well. (5 stacks.)
Turn 4: Dark Whispers has cooled down. Cast it again. (6 stacks.)
Herald is summoned.
Other things you can use if the target shrugs off Cacophony or the prophecies: Entropic Gift, the other two prophecies, and Netherblast with 5 Halo of Ruin stacks for voidburn.
I recommend getting Power Overwhelming from Entropy (1/1/1/1) so that you get entropic backlash from something more useful on Turn 0, such as Black Monolith (Void 1/1/1/0). If correctly placed, it will lock down the target for Turns 1-4, and will also make sure you have enough insanity to cast the prophecy. I also recommend Prophecy of Treason as your main prophecy because it only costs one more point to give the target a 26-29% chance of wasting its turn, a significant safety margin for turns 3-9 against the kind of enemy that's worthy of a herald of oblivion.

Thanks, tried this on my newest character and it works great.
Now I just have to see how good the herald is.
My first impression is that it's pretty good, considering I'm in the maze and it's hitting things for 300 damage.
