BrainPea would you like to change your vote in any way?
I say met-defining. Only because I like Kingsbane.
really good combo with kingsbane
and Deadly Poison
Since kft release i still didn't find a Bonemare, but i get at least 1 copy of this card in every pack..
Blade Fury, IIRC, says something like "deal damage equal to your weapon's attack to all enemy minions". The spell does the damage, not the weapon, and therefore lifesteal does not apply.
You cannot build a (tier one) deck around one or two weapon. There are two many card that can counter well weapons, to work it well you. Lets see you need at least 2 card 7 mana and 3 TURN I guess, but the ooze or the museum guy not closely as overpriced as the secret eater. If the top tier deck is easily countered by other decks without giving up to much deck integrity than that is not a top tier deck.
Works pretty well in a Thief Rogue with Obsidian Shard. Gets stronger as there's more weapons and weapon buffs added.
Worth noting: Rogues in Standard have Assassin's Blade, Obsidian Shard, Deadly Fork and now Shadowblade.
The new Phantom Freebooter likes all these weapons as well. Also the 9/9 Luckydo for 6!
Weapon Rogue might be closer to being a real deck than we think!
If this card is used in conjunction with Envenom Weapon, the healing+tempo swing could be huge. Would that justify putting this card in your deck?
But its really counter-synergistic with envenom weapon. Usually you want to cast envenom on a low attack weapon so you can make use of it. You would want lifesteal on weapons with high damage, which rouge dont have. You could just build a big weapon with poisons and other cards but then you would get really fucked by a ooze.
I think that with the weapons the rouge does have right now this is really far from constructed level.
Ah so let's say if you hero power envenom and leeching poison on a Shieldbearer, does it heal you for 1 then destroy the minion or heal you for 4?
It heals you for attack stat of your weapon.
Hey look! Finally a card that justifies the nerf to Blade Flur- oh wait nope it's still dog shit.
It is just simply bad. It has no place for arena or constructed. Stay away from it.
In wild this is going to be amazing. Tinker's Sharpsword Oil + Leeching Poison on Assassin's Blade = 24 damage and 24 healing
