    If this card was a 4/2 it might see play in some ultra-aggressive decks, but 2 extra mana for +2 attack on nerfed leper gnome is completely useless. I’d honestly rather the set had less cards, but they were all actually usable or interesting in some way, but instead we get worse leper gnome and 4 mana cards that die to bloodfen raptor.

    This is the worst card of the set so far. Period. Like, Worgen Greaser and Bomb Squad are like Dr. Boom compared to this piece of garbage. It’s even worse than Magma Rager because at least Rager can trade with higher health minions.

    What is the purpose of having one more attack if you still have one health?

    I don’t really understand why they made cards that are unplayable in both constructed and arena. This card is gonna see 0 play in any format of the game. It would only appear in summon random cards or as a choise in disvovers. I wonder if they do some of that 100% unplayables by discovers and randoms considertions. For example they revelead a card i dont rember the name, 5 mana 2/2 deathrate damage your hero in 5 or something like that. Maybe the impact of the card is strictly making Firelands Portal worst. So thats my question. Are unplayables pritned for that considerations of randoms/discovers as a light nerf or are just for arrive to a certain number of cards?

      Yeah that’s nerf for portals but That 5 mana 2/2 you said is playable. AND this card is common, so new players Can play it. In N’Zoth it’s always 2 damage to the enemy face and 3/1 body. I think this card is bad but could be worse for example 3 mana 2/1…

      they also made a 6 mana 1/1. They all are for portal nerf.

    This should have been a 4/2. Leper Gnome was good because it had the same effect with aggressive and effcient stats for its cost. So good that it had to be nerfed. A 4/2 with the same ability would be a healthy medium: The stats aren’t effcient but they are still aggressive, and useful for killing minions that come down buffed from your opponent’s hand. 3/1 is just unplayable though.
