So I guess the point is to combo this with backstab to remove somtething with 3 health. its not awful. With backstab its really decent against aggresive openings and haunted creepers and such and such. But rogue never had much problems with those decks anyway so probably a waste of a slot.
This is just a joke...we get the 7th. 2 drop that is too weak. But this might be the best of the 7. I can see this in a control rogue like cruel taskmaster in warrior. Vs. Agro this can be realy god and fast problem is, that we dont have enogh usefull cards to start a combo with, only backstab, but on turn 2 backstab and this will be overkill 10/10. So only card left is prep, which leads to the question would you use a prep+ x just to let this do 1 damage? Propbly not.
Why cant blizz just give is something like cutpurse but with playable stats? 2/3 1/4.... no we get those useless 2 drops...
Rogue needs cards to be able to be played on curve witout to much loss, everything is so ludicrous clunky. Like the new Buccaneer, thats a well designed rogue minion because it can give tempo but can also be played on turn 1 and be usefull in turn 2.
This card is better than people give it credit. As a rogue it was always a pain to deal with a turn 1 1/3 or a turn 2 haunted creeper etc. This allows you to kill those with backstab and gives you board presence. Previously you had to use backstab and dagger which is a tempo loss. Also, I have won and lost many games as a rogue by 1 damage, this could help push for lethal in the late game.
