Deal 2 damage to an undamaged minion.
It's funny how often yelling "Look over there!" gets your opponent to turn around.
How to get
Backstab x 2 are automatically included in all players' collections.
Backstab is an excellent card, providing a means to remove a 2 or 1 Health minion at no mana cost, deal additional damage to a larger minion at full Health and also set up a Combo.
While on its own it provides no card advantage or tempo, being merely direct removal, its zero mana cost can be used to allow a Combo that will either provide you with extra minions (Defias Ringleader) or remove other minions (SI:7 Agent).
Backstab is commonly used for early game removal, as an answer to cheap and aggressive minions played in the first few rounds.
