Because its a card that many decks use and its the only card that is keeping the retard smorcs in line. Control warlock will need heal card or else it will be dead deck. Control mage can get away with it maybe with better board clears ice block and alextraz
but the thing is that blizzard has decided to continue with the no duplicate decks.. but can they really be played without reno. It's possible more special cards will be released with the no duplicate effect in the future. Kazakus is like a mini reno in some ways but not as good as chin chin.
I'm not as confident that Reno is not rotating out as you are. I do believe that it would deal an early, premature death blow to Kabal decks; but it's entirely possible that they will create a new Legendary to take its place in the next expansion with an equivalent positive impact on the game. It's a question of what kind of precedent Blizzard wants to create here.

Dependable loan sharks since 1960. We sink our teeth into every deal we make.
reno being moved to classic is really unlikely becaus ehe's an adventure card, that's why i was so pissed when they revealed the kabal legendaries and no other cards that support the archetype asides from kazakus, because until/unless it's proven otherwise, Reno will rotate out in spring, leaving kabal to be the gang with the least amount of time in standard and in a very bad spot, plus with 2 pretty much useless legendaries ( as much as i like them we have to admit that they're useful atm because reno exists but their effects aren`t powerful enough to justify highlander deck's viability).
Reno is unlikely to be move dbecause he's from an adventure, people that paid for the adventure would feel scammed and that would be a bad pr move for blizzard.
