    There are a few deck where this can be an insane opener. If you're on the coin and you have another 1-mana card it's also pretty good.

    Perhaps it replaces Blazing Battlemage?

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    insane in paladin with First Day of School now every deck can potentially play a Flame Imp.

    Lot of decent-good 1-drops this expansion.  Could be a Flame Imp level good in some decks, but it's not good enough to run in every fast deck out there.

    A nice 1-drop for aggro decks with enough spells.

    Probably does pretty well in token druid, but a lot of aggro decks don't have very many spells they are willing to play on turn 2, making the card less universal than it looks.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    The down-vote is an 'I disagree' button, not an insult.

    Very powerful with The Coin or any cheap spell. Imagine playing this turn one into Adorable Infestation on turn 2. This kind of reminds me of that one pirate in Mean Streets who had +2 attack when you had a weapon, only spells are a lot more universal than weapons, so I imagine this guy will be just as good if not better.

    Remember Small-Time Buccaneer? He used to have 2 Health, and was then nerfed. This is pre-nerf Small-Time Buccaneer that's easier for most decks to activate. It not being a Pirate is a small price to pay. Really good card.

    I guess it is good in a smork deck with cheap spells, like mage?

    Basically its Small-Time Buccaneer all over again. But this has the problem only really being possible inclusions into aggro shaman and tempo mage.

    So perhaps that's good enough to make those decks work, and to make this card utterly hellish.

    Very good 1 Drop for almost every aggro deck!

    T1 this + T2 coin edwin = 3/2 and 4/4 for aggro rogue, but in general idk if aggro want to play spell in the first few turns.

    Great 1 drop. Will certainly see play in a bunch of aggro decks. Does the +2 atk stay? if so then it's REALLY good. If not then that's okay, it's still a big burst of damage. Will see plenty of play.

    Ok, so a neutral Flame Imp that doesn't burn you. You probably want to follow up with a 2-drop minion rather than a spell, but what if it's Power Word: Feast? Not bad at all.

    I couldn't have said it better. And yes, I remember. It was a dark time. And he was in charrrge.

    In a land where 1 mana 1/3s are praised, any 1 mana minion that can easily become a 3/2 is king.

    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)

    I really like this as an early option for some decks - I think it's cool that you really need to be running a decent amount of low-cost spells to actually turn it into a powerhouse.

    Also he's kinda cute ngl

    On turn 1 with a cheap spell this card is strong...but what if we haven't the spell? 1 mana for 1/2 is terrible. So...I think we need some test to see if this is consistent strong

    After considering it a bit more I got it from 3 to 4 stars... This might give me gadgetzan flashbacks if it is good
