Strategy[edit | edit source]

This card is similar to Wild's Sabotage, but much, much worse. This card is designed to work well with a deck full of cheap Deathrattle cards, but as of yet there simply aren't enough good options for Rogue to make it viable. Furthermore, the existence of Vilespine Slayer, a faster and more tempo-oriented card, means that rogues have enough removal as is in the current metagame.

Even if there existed a Rogue deck with enough Deathrattles to use this, its mechanic works against the theme. Powerful removal is run mainly in heavy Control decks, but it requires low-cost Deathrattles, which is a staple for Midrange decks. The theme for this card is overall awkward and there simply are better options for Rogue.
