Strategy[edit | edit source]

Plague Scientist is a minion with a very strong effect, as it's essentially a poisonous minion with Charge. It can be used to allow any minion you have on the board to trade evenly. It has high potential in a Tempo Rogue deck, as the ability to trade in a cheap minion while developing another in the process can provide a massive tempo boost. However, the card is dependent on having minions on board, and not as flexible as other options like SI:7 Agent.

In Wild, it can be comboed with Unstable Ghoul as a delayed, but almost guaranteed board clear, filling the Rogue's need for a powerful board clear.

Plague Scientist is a strong Arena card, as any hard removal is usually desirable.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Summon
Calm down, I'm a doctor!
