    That’s just giving a minion rush?

      Pretty much, but not exactly. There are some minor differences – for example, if you play this on a minion one turn, it won’t be able to attack face. But it will still have Charge, so if you now copy it with Faceless Manipulator on the next turn, you will be able to hit face (because the second part of the card is only relevant for a turn that has already passed). Plus some minor synergy differences, like it won’t get affected by cards that affect Rush, but those that affect Charge.

      They would probably make it Rush, but back when the card was changed, Rush was not a keyword yet. Plus Rush is not a part of the Basic/Classic set (and Charge is a Basic card), so they didn’t want to introduce a new keyword for a single card
