    Well hello pack filler. Pretty sure some kind of deathrattle aggro priest will ignore this as well, even if they could replay the deathrattle with Xyrella, the Devout.

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

    Strong in Arena, unreliable in Constructed. Could be decent as redundancy in Phylactery Warlock, but Nerubian Egg is probably the better choice.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    It reminds me of the kobold ghost 5/1. It's just a pack filler, there are more attractive deathrattles out there

    Cursed Disciple saw fringe constructed play in Jungle Giants Druid, but it only did because it developed the quest hard. Although Piggyback Imp is a better card than Cursed Disciple, without that utility the latter provides, I don't see a way Piggyback Imp can see play (and like Cursed Disciple, Piggyback Imp is a very decent arena card).

    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)

    Another card I want to like... 1 health kinda sucks. An egg/demon zoo warlock. Deathrattle DH. 

    Chumbawumba is the worst band name.

    Cursed Disciple 2.0. This might be better with it being a mana cheaper, though still will only see play in Arena.

    It's an Imp, of course it is bad.
    Legend as it that there was only ever one good imp, and oh boy was he ever flamboyant!

    Not quite the Magma Rager of the set, but almost just as fragile.

    Too easy to remove, despite minions summoning deathrattles typically being very sticky. I'd rather just play Devouring Ectoplasm.

    If we would continue to play bingo - Neutral Trashy Demon? Check. One can argue about high attack value but beside of this being randomly summoned, there is no reason to use it.

    Well, it's got deathrattle. Bad stats but deathrattle... nah... won't see play unless spawned off random generation effects or evolve.

    I think we've found this expansion's Magma Rager.

    Not completely awful, but certainly too frail to see any kind of constructed play.

    Cursed Disciple was actually draftable last rotation. The earlier in game the more likely 1 damage is used. As Arena is concerned it's especially unlikely because the augmerchants are in rotation (idk if rotation or not).

     

    Good stats tho

    Arena could be a soft taunt for things, but other than that at least the art is cool

    Not much point to this one. I'm surprised this wasn't a Rager of some sort. I just don't see a double 4/1 minion being worth it right now.

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