Rogue Anti-Rogue card?
Can you destroy your own minion to remove them from your opponents deck?
A Rogue minion to ... Counter Rogue? lol
I mean it's also strong vs Sathrovarr combos, so should those ever become top tier, they can be countered at least.
Quote From OedlanCan you destroy your own minion to remove them from your opponents deck?
I would think so yes.
Counters paladin 2 turn kill maybe.
Doesn't seem to good overall.
This a 6 star card it will be in every rogue deck till it rotates.
Combo decks will have to be real careful. This nearly hard counters shirvall
Worth mentioning: should destroy your own copies too.
Quote From kramerofboandlsCounters paladin 2 turn kill maybe.Doesn't seem to good overall.
Why not? A 6 mana 4/4 + assassinate seems good to me, vile spine slayer has combo requirement, this does not.
It's effect is sometimes a double edged sword though. And sometimes a big positive.
Destroying your own N'zoth seems to be a good idea.
That's true, but assassinate is never played. There aren't too many high value single targets in the current meta. Maybe that will change, but I don't think so.
Rogue got the anti-rogue tech card :)) Pretty good for its cost, if you are playing against another class, there is no downside - it will not remove your own stuff.
Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!
I dislike the fact that they made this a class card. Getting rid of copies of a card is quite a niche thing to do: usually it's irrelevant but against certain decks it's game-winning: EG Pogo-hopper, Shirvallah, so why not give all classes access to the effect?
Flik is obviously very powerful, probably too strong to print as a neutral as-is, but IMO a toned-down version of this would've been neat. Also how is Flik not a pirate?
This card is either going to be insane or a total bust - no in between. I can definitely see the potential here, but it's too early to judge how much immediate impact this will have outside of obviously being anti-Sathrovarr. Really interesting to see how this plays out...

Also how is Flik not a pirate?
Because he's clearly a Ninja. Go Ninjas!
Basically a reprint of Vilespine Slayer, one of Rogue’s best single target removals ever, without a combo requirement and with specific tech that can be used for specific matchups as a bonus. Insta five stars that sees play in every Rogue deck till it rotates.
Pogohopper counter, finally, so long these monsters terrorizing ladder.
I mean, it'S definitely good (removal on a stick is always good) but in what scenario does it really pay off? Best case scenario you're going to target a regular minion and preemptively remove the second copy in your opponent's deck, which is obviously good, but not terribly exciting.
The only scenario where this REALLY shines is against Quest Druid, where you can use it to kill both Oasis Surgers at once while also killing the one in the deck (and possibly Floop if they have it in hand at that time)
Maybe it can act as a pseudo board clear against token decks that some multiple tokens of the same type (like treants) and you get to screw over the 3 people that still play Holy Wrath Paladin.
It's good, and it will definitely be a staple in most Rogue decks just for the tempo alone, but I feel like the effect just won't be as....exciting....as it looks.
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
I'm not sure why this was class-specific, seems like it should be a neutral. The effect is overall great, Vilespine Slayer was borderline broken and this doesn't require you to combo it with a different card. Even if not used as a combo disruptor, it can at best destroy an enemy minion, disable your opponent to play a second copy they run in their deck and potentially any generated or discovered copies. Great card.
Quote From kramerofboandlsThat's true, but assassinate is never played. There aren't too many high value single targets in the current meta. Maybe that will change, but I don't think so.
Vile spine slayer was a 2 of in every rogue deck until it rotated +1 attack +1 mana - combo requirement
It doesn't even need to be a big minion meta this is a tempo play, assassinate is not a tempo play.
*Rouge points gun at rouge* But seriously this is a rouge counter in rouge which is kind of odd. But the main question does it work on jades? because if so that pestilence is completely gone. Also, I love her? art and special effects with a soft spot for kobolds I love this card.
Only a fool thinks they know everything. I admit that I know nothing
I think it destroys all copies like it says. Yours and of the opponent. Cool card. Nice tech VS (Rogue) shenanigans
Great Card - gonna be interesting getting rid of the big Dragon prep cards (you know - that big guy... with the face)
Vilespine is better only because it costs one mana less and you can run two copies of it. Besides that, this card is very good, coz it gives you nive body (4/4) and good assasinate effect

Pfft. This is rogue. You can run as many of any card as you like (unless your opponent has their own Flik...).
Seriously though, this is pretty much an auto-include in standard and probably takes the place of one of the Vilespines in wild. It might even be played in addition to both Vilespines there.
