    Weaker Shadow Word Death? For what reason, just play Obliterate, you'll heal back the damage anyways

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Hmm could be decent. The highest attack minion can be a good thing to remove. However sometimes your in a situation where you rather kill the smaller minion instead. Just a random example: Spitelash Siren is on board + a minion with 1 more attack. In this case you preferrably kill the Spitelash instead. And in a case like that [Hearthstone Card (Aspyxiate) Not Found] is pretty bad, while if you play against some king of midrange/control deck [Hearthstone Card (Aspyxiate) Not Found] might be a lot better. This card seems really situational. Honestly i dont know how to rate this card, this seems too situational.

    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.

    If the 4-atk minion is the highest one he will destroy it, so at least this card can do sth. SWD can't.

    Its not really that amazing, but will see play regardless because its a removal card and blood decks dont really have a boatload of them. Even if this was 4 mana it'll still likely see play.

    But of course, its not really that good. Removal options often need to be consistent and this isn't it because you cant control what it kills. Any smart player will actively play around it.
