I think that this card is quite overrated. Not to say that it’s bad, I think that an aggro deck will always want to play this card, but I don’t see why it needs to deal 2 dmg to your own face. Like, righteous protector is a thing, and gaining +1 attack while losing taunt seems like a pretty reasonable tradeoff to me. At the end of the day, this is like a 1 mana 2/2 most of the times, since a lot of classes will use their hp to deal with this, but in some games it can also make it so the enemy has a way harder time to deal with it. For example, warlock, who has a lot of spells but that won’t waste two of them for just one minion; this also can make good trades in the early turns, destroying flame imps all day every day, but not provide the same protection a righteous protector provides you with. Against an aggro deck, not only is the enemy not forced to trade, but this also damages you (not by a lot, but it’s still a free hunter hp for the opponent), making it so you’re pretty vulnerable to them (Aggro paladin decks won’t play Renathal, so you even have less health than an Imp warlock with Renathal does). In a midrange deck, I don’t know if you would even want to play this: health matters even more to you in that kind of slower deck, but you do have heals as well, and Cariel too. All in all, I expect to see this is some hyper aggro paladin deck combined with the 2 mana that gives 3 attack to a minion and 2 to your hero: 8 dmg by turn 2 is something to be reckoned with, but I don’t know on what bases you would construct a deck such as that one. Perhaps a Secret, since many of those cards are still in standard? Time will tell, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.
Highly overrated. +1attack and paladin card for 2dmg face. Something like flame imp, which didnt see any play without imp support. Dont think this will see crazy ammount of play.
A better flame imp 🙂
