Bit of lore, this guy has been sitting down in the apothecary selling flowers in Undercity since launch. He was added to the game as a nod to the book "Flowers for Algernon" about a mentally disabled man who undergoes a new treatment which 'cures' him for awhile. unfortunately the treatment wares off and he returns to his mentally disabled state. In terms of the card think of it as a much more powerful Coldlight Oracle with a mirrored downside upon death that you can take advantage of.
Tired of pesky Haunted Creepers? Piloted Shredders getting you down? Are you sick to death of that gosh darn Sludge Belcher? Not anymore!
Patchwerk, a particularly large abomination, explodes TWICE - not just dealing 4 damage to all minions - no no, he deals 2 damage to all minions, the other minions' deathrattles and such trigger, THEN he deals another 2 damage to all minions.
May sound a tad obscure, but it can be really helpful for taking out sticky minions like Harvest Golems and most things from Piloted Shredder. And even if there aren't sticky minions, he's still a 6-6 with Taunt and a Deathrattle to flamestrike everything - even trigging deathrattles on your OWN minions!
Public Mod Note
UNDER REVIEW: Mana Cost must be 6 or less.
Here's the link to the outdated WoWwikia article. Otherwise, I feel like this is the sort of card rogue really needs. Its aggressively cost, but not attacking is the only way to keep getting your free combo. Also, for Edwin VanCleef and the way the mechanic is supposed to work is that if the minion is stealthed you're considered to have played 1 card, so will give Edwin +2/+2 and 2 will give him +4/+4.

While this minion is on the board, any Secrets that are activated will act as if they are your Secret. For Example: Explosive Trap, you would attack your opponents hero and the Secret would activate. It'd reveal that it was Explosive Trap and then damage their board instead of yours.
