    Should see some play in standard due to how easy it is to corrupt.  Way too good with Corsair Cache.  One corrupts the other, which in turn buffs the former.

    Easy to corrupt, and a great effect. Will see plenty of play, and it's fun to see some corrupt cards for rogue and warrior. Both of those didnt really get any corrupt cards so far. Unfortunatly i don't think you would play Y'Shaarj, the Defiler alongside these corrupt cards. 

    Standard:

    Rogue: Will probably see play in some kind of weapon/aggro rogue. Might even be used in whirlkick rogue for more FACE damage.

    Warrior: Bomb Warrior will instanly include Nitroboost Poison, because of more FACE damage. Nitroboost Poison kinda "unnerfs" Corsair Cache so that's interesting.

    Wild:

    Rogue: [Hearthstone Card (Kingbane) Not Found] Rogue will insta-include this, and maybe ODD-Rogue might include it as well? Nitroboost Poison will see plenty of play.

    Warrior: Not sure if Pirate Warrior even wants this, i'm not sure.. I don't think there is any other deck that really want's it...

    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.

    Weapon poison is played right now. This is almost twice as strong. The corrupt part is no issue whatsoever. It also activated combos and pretty well
    Insanely busted

    Tinker's Sharpsword Oil was one of the most powerful cards in rogue. And this card is basically that, but slightly smaller.

    Its just straight up broken. Corrupting this is just too easy, and even with the regular dagger and a stealth minion, this card is already doing 6 extra damage. All for 1 mana. Even if its basically just Deadly Poison, there's nothing not to like having 4 deadly poisons in a dedicated rogue deck.

    As for warrior, well, it different. Unless its in something like pirate warrior, its just really not as good, given that warrior actually needs a weapon, unlike rogue. And warrior have Upgrade!, a fundamentally more powerful card than this one. But still, I'm not counting this out from any aggro warrior deck, that's for sure, just not anywhere else.

    My thoughts directly went to Tinker's Sharpsword Oil too - wasn't it Hall of Famed for that matter?

    Far as I know, it was never HoF. It just rotated like everything else, its after all a GvG card.

    OP card, will see play in a variety of fast Warrior and Rogue decks. As others have said it's basically a stronger Tinker's Sharpsword Oil: way easier to activate, and cheaper to boot. Might get nerfed in the future.

    deadly always gives attack though vs this onyl if corrupted, which is important for combo triggering and to quily reduce cost of cutting class and is betetr of secret passage (as may not have the mana or the card to be able to corrupt it)

    This still good card, but not giving atatck to weapon imeadtly also shouldnt be overlooked.

    The potential with Rogue dual class cards is just stupid.  Being able to corrupt a 1 cost card in Rogue is dumb.  Warrior seems to have a lot of control aspects that allow Weapon focus as well, which means this card could be seen a lot in both classes

    This looks very good. Better than Tinker's because it's so much cheaper, and you can control which minion it hits.

    I like the design of this. Good cheap combo activator for weapon Rogue and gives weapon Warrior a taste of Sharpsword Oil in the same swing.

    Will for sure see play.

    luckily the corrupt keyword on this card slows it down somewhat. It's still see plenty of play, in probably both classes

    This is a fun little card. I think I'm going to play around with it in a Stealth Rogue style deck. The weapon will corrupt it and you usually have a minion on board to target the attack buff. Looks llike fun.

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