    This card has potential, it's a well-statted weapon with a possibly great upside. I just don't see it getting a deckslot over other rogue weapons like Swinetusk Shank and Self-Sharpening Sword.

    Shank and SSS have different purposes. They want to be buffed and hit the enemy in the face. Counterfeit DaggerBADCARDNAME aims for value.

    It doesnt look all that good now, but no doubt further reveals will show why this card was printed at all.

    On its own as a 4 drop weapon its fairly expensive as a value card but it still does hit face for 8 and that has got to count for something. The extra deathrattle value may be what really pushes this card over the edge as an excellent weapon.

    Weird card. They want to push back DR rogue?

    So far best synergy is Ticket Master.

    It's not bad but I'll need to see the deathrattles first. If you don't get this on curve it just gets worse later on (unless we have some insane gamewinning deathrattle).

     

    Also, I wonder how this works with certain deathrattles that work with minion stats (like Sergeant Sally)

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Deathrattle Rogue has always been entertaining. I guess the hard part of it is needing to have a deathrattle trigger prior to equipping the weapon. Depending on your target effect this might end up being a card that you don't want on curve.

    Unfortunately, common sense isn't as common as it should be.

    Necrium Blade was pretty balanced until it became almost broken thanks to Necrium Apothecary. Counterfeit DaggerBADCARDNAME, since it only looks at Deathrattles already triggered when it enters play and can't trigger on the same turn (unless you spend more mana on a different weapon), looks like a much more healthy Necrium Blade. I really like the design, even if the big value deathrattles aren't on T4.

    Rating cards on coolness factor rather than predicting power because I like screwing up rating averages (and because I suck at predicting real power levels, but we'll ignore that LUL)

    This random doesn't have to be all that random if you only run very specific deathrattles. On top of that, this is already a 4 mana 4/2. Good stats, good effect. I like this card. Maybe not a card that will see play in every deck, but I think it'll find a home somewhere.

    Nice card. We've had a couple other 4 mana 4/2 weapons, and they've seen plenty of play. This one's ability should also prove useful. Now if there is a deathrattle that somehow copies a minion (Elwynn Boar), we're in business.

    4 mana 4/2 is already good enough stats for a weapon to be played. And the ability can be very powerful. The only downside is that I am not sure if deathrattle rogue is a real deck.

    Keeping my eye on this one. Don't think it works out with Elwynn Boar, but it could still be a good value weapon.

    Best synergy is with a card cheaper than this so it can be played on curve. Ticket Master works well, but not well enough to build a deck around.

    This has a lot of fun things that could be tied to it.  Being able to repeat a Deathrattle that already triggered is pretty awesome

    Pretty good, you could even play it with just the Prime, though that's just bad haha.

    That card will not see play, but will remain sleeping until some crazy deathrattle will be added to Standard.

    By The Holy Light!

    Nothing too crazy in the deathrattle pool currently but summoning an extra minion or drawing a card on play isn't bad. Could be interesting. Currently looking at using Infiltrator Lilian for fun and for that scream!

    Really strong card alongside Infiltrator Lilian. Maybe Infiltrator Lilian + Counterfeit Blade becomes a good core for aggresive rogue decks? But it could also use some support, which it probably will get this set.

    Counterfeit Blade has a lot of potential, and i think it will see plenty of play.

    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.
