With the influx of demons coming to the game via the Demon Hunter class, as well as Ashes of Outland expansion, demons are going to become a very common minion type. Even now since the addition of Galakrond, the Wretched, with Decent of Dragons, Sacrificial Pact is getting two spots in many Warlock lists. I am sure Blizzard may already have Sacrificial Pact on the radar for possible Hall of Fame in the future. Till then, I predict it will be in almost every Warlock list for the next year, so do not forget to add it to yours. Remember it hits any demon, including the enemy player's minions. What are your thoughts and expectations about this card, and its interaction on the coming meta?
They can just nerf it so it targets friendly Demons only, it probably was the initial intended purpose. I don't know why they left it like that to this day, especially the interaction with Jaraxxus. Perhaps they thought it was harmless and flavorful?

Check out my ambitiously horrific custom expansion, Call of the Ocean!
Perhaps. Perhaps the power level will become higher with the shifting meta? Perhaps that is what they want anyways? But if the effect becomes game breaking and the card is in every warlock deck, it might be on the overturned side and need a nerf, like only targeting friendly demons, or a having a higher mana cost. We could also see it go to HoF. In fact I suspect that every class will get a make over, like priest, in time.
Seems reasonable to me that one class could have a great anti-demon card, thus keeping the number of DH decks and other decks dependent on powerful demons in check.
Plus, we haven't seen all the neutral cards yet. I am certain they'll include this expansion's version of Dragonmaw Poacher. Will it see any play? Who knows. But tech cards are always part of the game.
