    Pretty strong, essentially a better version of Spirit Bomb, but as of now there is no real payoff for self-harm and Warlock isn't exactly struggling when it comes to removal.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    very efficient removal but does warlock need it? best to destroy mid to late game minions at which point your cascading disasters already been corrupted once at least, dont see where this card goes

    Darkglare might like this card. Turns it into a 1 mana deal 5. (ofc. 1 dmg need to go face to get the refresh.)

    But i think in wild Darkglare warlock prefers Spirit Bomb because it's basicly free with Darkglare

    In standard it feels too weak, Cascading Disaster is often better. The only notable thing is that it works with Tamsin Roame, but i feel like that's not good enough. 

    RNG is only fun, as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something good or bad. If RNG always results in something good, it's not fun.

    Strong but not necessary. Warlocks have a lot of strong absolute removal and board wipe tools, and I can't see this outcompeting either. Maybe if the 6 damage on turn 2 mark becomes really important, maybe against handbuff mech paladin?

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    This is amazing. Removes a big threat for cheap so you can develop behind it. This is outstanding.

    If there's one thing Warlock loves, it's removal

    This is sick removal for a class that already has tons of it. This is an indirect buff to Oh My Yogg!

    Appearantly Darkglare Warlock wasn't already strong enough in Wild. Straight up control decks might want to use this too. A 2 mana Fireball is nothing to scoff at.

    Arena > Wild > Standard

    That's just a cool design. A reverse Piercing Shot. Also shadow for Tamsin shenanigans.

    This is just a good removal option for warlock. The paltry fact that you'll lose health is hardly a downside, and in some cases you might not lose any health at all. This plus Tamsin Roame makes for a really nasty combo.

    Im actually afraid of this one. Before, its easy to play around warlock's removals in the early turns, and now we have this card. This card might be what finally breaks the camels back and get Tickatus nerfed.

    So, a reverse Piercing Shot, only much cheaper. Still, I'm not sure this is necessary.
