Battlecry: Give a minion +2 Attack this turn.
ADD ME TO YOUR DECK, MAGGOT!
Dr. Boom, I'm SI:7
Actually still a very decent zoo card (especially if you're new and don't have the resource to get Malchezaar's Imp, etc.) I think this is one of Blizzard's best balance changes that didn't entirely ruin the card but also kept it from auto-include.
golden version powercreep!
still auto-include in zoo???
Finally playable with Hobgoblin
The nerf here is actually pretty deserved. The +2 attack and the 2/1 stats made for some efficient burst damage and worthwhile early game trades. I've won a lot of games off of the things that this card has enabled.
Fun Fact: Blizzard had this as a 1/1 originally and buffed it to it's current state, only to nerf it back to its original state. Well played.
It will still see more play than Leper Gnome, +2 for trading is much better than 2 to the face. I was surprised they didn't change this card during the last update.
Why? Just why? un-nerf Maggot!
This probably needed the nerf with the efficient trades it enabled.
Really? This is the icon of aggro and some midrange decks. I dont think it was really necessary.
The problem with 2 attack was that it still left heavy presence on board after aggro player got a good trade/smorc value out of it. This very efficient battlecry and 2/1stats are way too strong for a neutral card so I'm really glad blizzard realised that.
Actually, this card will still be auto included into all face decks despite the nerf
The Leper Gnome nerf
Get in there and fight, maggot gachiGASM

Get in there and fight, maggot!
Fun fact, this was the first card I ever crafted.
A common classic card? Well, at least you picked a good one, I guess
