will be great in the new zoo deck. kind of like a miracle zoo or something with the way you could snowball this guy. very risk/reward and a great way of hammering home the whole "health is a resource" thing for warlocks.
this card can be and will probably be very good in zoo, it has amazing synergy with another new card Crystallizer, not to mention kobold librarian, flame imp, vulgar homunculus plus many many more, even just tapping and then playing this wouldn't be the worst.

nope i think this card is just bad. 5 mana 3/5 or 4 mana 3/5
You imply that the 1 or 2 mana used to damage yourself is solely for upgrading the minion. Usually, you'll be playing those cards or tapping anyway, so the upgrade is "free". Where you are right is that it cannot be played on curve for 3 mana (well you can, but that's a horrible play)
My issue is that I don't think the upgrade is easy or flexible enough, and that not enough self-damage cards exist to make this worth including in your deck, not to mention this is horrible to play on curve.
