    I like this card to be honest. 4 mana for a very sticky minion, with a net spend of 1 corpse. That's fine honestly. If youre looking to flood board this card is solid, and if there are handbuffs this card is just completely insane.

    A nice little target for Invincible and other related buffs, but its large initial corpse requirement would likely doom it to only unholy decks. Because I dont see blood or frost decks come remotely close to playing this on curve.

    Very sticky and good with buff effect... HOWEVER there is 1 thing that cant be ignored. The effect. This effect is very powerfull as long as you have version with reborn, HOWEVER this effect is AWFUL once the reborn triggers. Imagine you play this, and your opponent kills both copies of this minion with a spell, but leaves the non-reborns on board as 2/1s. Well if your opponent has a empty board and you cant kill of your Malignant Horrors, guess what? Your spending 5-10 corpses on summoning 1 or 2 2/1s. And thus your opponent can drain your corpse total in exchance for a bit of health. 

    However as long as DK has enough ways of buffing this minion, this might still be worth running regardless. But you still have to be wary of your opponent draining your corpses.

    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.

    Sounds too gimmicky to work. IT's just a small goon that eats all your corpses. Unless spamming Undeads leads to victory I doubt this makes sense.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.
