Swift Messenger Card Review
It’s true that those “swap stats in hand” are better with Rush, because now both stat-lines make more sense depending on the matchup and the board state, but it’s probably still not enough. In this case, the 2/6 form is better for dealing with multiple small minions, and the 6/2 form is like a 6 damage minion removal for 4 mana, because you aren’t likely to clear something and still have this on the board (technically you will sometimes run it into some 1/2 minion etc. but that will rarely be the case).
But just like any other “swap” minion, the thing I dislike most about this one is the fact that you can’t choose the form on the fly. You might need 6 damage when this is 2/6, or you might need the 2/6 when your opponent has some 2/2 minion on the board and this turns into a 6/2.
Overall, the card is not terrible, it’s more than a pack filler, but it doesn’t look good enough to see any serious ladder play. Great in Arena, though!
A common comment is that this, and the other similar cards might be good in Lady in White decks, but I beg to differ. It will still be bad until you draw and play the Lady, and that might not happen until the very late game. Lady in White is a supplementary card, not “build your deck around” card. You want to play minions that are already good by themselves and only get better with Lady in play – this is not one of them.
Card rating: 3/10
