Ironic. It could recycle others, but not itself.

Rusty Recycler Card Review

Between its name and its looks, there’s no doubt that it’s a WALL-E reference. But as a card, it’s mostly a pack filler. Paying 5 mana for a 2/6 Taunt is really weak, even if it has Lifesteal. We had a 4 mana 1/6 Taunt with Lifesteal and it was horrible (although it has some amazing art – Felsoul Inquisitor). 1 mana for +1 Attack doesn’t seem very exciting.

If anything, this card’s only hope is the Mech tag. Magnatize has some nice synergy with Lifesteal, if you can buff it easily with another Mech, then it might be worth it. But realistically, this is not going to survive a turn most of the time. 2 attack also means that most of the decks will be able to trade into it without killing their own minions… which means that it’s still bad.

Rotten Applebaum turned out to be a pretty average card, and it seems much better than this guy, mostly because it actually kills lots of stuff that attack it.

Card rating: 3/10

    Weak by itself.

    Magnetized it gives lifesteal and taunt.

    id say it is 3/5 just because it is much better than Bloodworm.

    A neutral minion reminiscent of Alley Armorsmith. Could be a solid inclusion into Mech decks just for the Magnetic buff but can be played on it’s own against Aggro. 4/5

    Now this…this is interesting, that’s potentially a hell of a lot of defense. Probably going to be a common discovery with Dr. Boom, not sure how often you’ll actually put it in your deck though.
