Rogue has way too much good removal spells Backstab.Eviscerate, Sap, this core of cards is enough for tempo, thats why Assasinate sees no play and this card won't too. Only maybe even rogue would play this due to lack of cards.
First warriors get more powerful hard removal, now rogues? Probably the 2 classes that need it the least... Anyway
The card is really good. I don't know if it will see much play while Vilespine reigns supreme since a 3/4 body with your removal is insane and I don't know how much more removal rogues need, but this here is a solid card.
Pretty much this. It isn't as good as vilespine. However this feels more like a pre emptive replacement for vilespine come rotation.
Wow, never thought that people overrate this card so much. Sorry, but in a world where Vilespine Slayer exist, this card does not. You can get for 1 mana more an unconditional destroy a minion-spell. Is 1 mana less this worth it? Surely NOT until the meta rotates out in standard, and in wild this card will never be playable.
This card is in a weird, albeit playable, spot. If it were a 3-mana card, it would be absolutely broken and the rogue equivalent to Execute; however, if it were 5-mana, it would be basically pointless due to Assassinate.
Assassinate never saw play. Is a conditional, 1 mana cheaper alternative going to see play?
The conditional is almost irrelevant, opponent play the minion and you can kill it, except the 3 manas 4/7 and the mech almost don't see any play at all, Backstab have the same conditional and is one of the best, if not the best, rogue card ever.
1 mana cheaper is a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE diference, many cards swap the broken category for barely playable or even useless crap because a single mana increase like CtA, Bonemare and CotW.
