Question is different though.
It's not about how relevant the deck is.
Tickatus won't ever see a chance to see the board in an aggro matchup, agreed. It's basically a dead card in those matchups.
Don't we all agree though that in a control/combo matchup (in combination with y'shaarj, of course) its effect is unfair and op, reducing the opponent's chances to win by roughly 75/80%?!?
Again. It would be a 6-mana 8/8 demon that happens to burn 3 cards from the opponent's deck. I'm completely missing the "that would make it totally unplayable" argument. It's no-sense.
