    One of the slightly more underrated cards, though it is now only available in Wild.

    Put this card into a deck which has Consecration or Equality and against Deathrattle decks it can help ensure Equality combo with a card. In certain situation it can also sabotage your opponent by destroying Deathrattle cards before he can pull of his combos. Of course, this card is limited by only targeting Deathrattle minions, and here lies the counter argument;
    – What if you face a deck with few or no Deathrattle cards in it?

    Scarlet Purifier is then a straight up 4/3 minion for 3 cost, an OK body with good attack and average cost. If you recognize that the deck you face is not a typical Deathrattle deck you can play him early for that tiny bit of board presence, and either go face, or if you want to, trade with it. Even without Deathrattle creatures on table it is still OK, not super, not magnificent, but OK.

    Scarlet Purifier is the Average Joe of Paladin decks, if you want to have that extra bit of omph and find yourself wanting to remove low health Deathrattle minions or even single minion, without having to trade. Paladins lack removal spells, so being able to kill a 2HP Deathrattle minion for 3 mana and get a 4/3 body is actually a steal.
