Strategy[edit | edit source]

EVIL Genius effectively draws two cards and has decent stats for its cost, but this comes at the cost of having to sacrifice a friendly minion. This drawback can however be exploited by activating a beneficial Deathrattle effect, such as Scarab Egg, or by removing a minion with a detrimental effect, such as one that has had Blessing of Wisdom cast on it.
