Return an enemy minion to your opponent's hand.
Rogues love sappy movies.
This card is far more cancerous than Flamewreathed Faceless.I really hope it gets the Molten Giant which was my favourite card of the classic set
This card should've been nerfed instead of blade flurry. Rouges now have easy removal for a OTK. It has made playing against Rouges unfun.
I don't really understand the concept behind this card. I mean it's obviously useful and all, but what exactly would this represent? eg Shield Slam = hitting a minion with your shield, a Piloted Shredder drops the pilot when it's destroyed, etc. What does it mean to sap someone?
This actually has nothing to do with the real Sap. In World of Warcraft, sap silences the target and freezes it, so why this version instead gets cards off the field is beyond me.
It supposed to represent whacking someone on the head making them dizzy (hence the stars in the art). As for the name, it's what the spell in WoW is called.
Kinda like when somebody "saps" the strength from you. I guess from getting hit over the head or sum...
I actually would've liked it if they had been a little less harsh to Blade Flurry (Read: Not make it non-existent) and nerfed this instead.
In my experience, this card just crushes control decks on its own. Rogue is pretty much the king of tempo. So if you get a board going and your opponent's only answer by turn 5+ is dropping a big minion, you usually win the game if you can sap it back for just 2 mana.
This card should reduce the cost of the minion it bounced back to the hand. The tempo loss when your big minion gets sapped is just stupid.
Man I don't get why everyone uses this card. Other than Mill (in which case it's very fun and good), I just never found it all that good since the opponent will just play the minion again (in fact you help them if it's a Battlecry minion). None the less though, I guess I'll be including it in my Reno Miracle C'thun Rogue....
You can sap a taunt minion to push for lethal, or you can sap a random enemy minion while you have Gadgetzan Auctioneer to sycle.
After I thought about this I actually totally realized it's value lol. Someone can be spending as much as ten mana on playing a minion, or at the very least wasting all their mana for that turn; and you basically make that turn pointless by sending it back for only two mana, which also allows you plenty of mana to keep doing stuff on that same turn.
I thought he was a girl
Fun Fact : Sap to full hand equals death (and triggers deathrattles).
WoW art makes me cringe. You know you've reached a whole new level when you give your shoulder plates shoulder plates.....
