    I think that the change this got was necessary and optimal for the Rogue class.  Rogue likes to hit a lot, Warrior likes to just hit hard.  So the reduction in the damage the weapon deals makes sense.

    This buff is incredible, without adding buffs to it from other cards this just hits for 10.

    Seems good now, but it does have to compete against Self-Sharpening Sword. Unfortunatly i don't think Assassin's Blade will see play, unless Self-Sharpening Sword gets nerfed.

    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.

    luckily Self-Sharpening Sword will almost certainly be nerfed

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    I certainly hope it does. :)

    Don't bet on it. Assassin's blade has a 10 damage total output compared to SSS which incidentally has the same damage output. The difference is 1 mana. So how would team5 nerf this card without completely making it redundant? I mean, if SSS was 4 mana now its literally just assassin's blade

    Well, SSS does hit that 10 damage 1 swing faster than Assassin's Blade, making it better for aggresive decks, and SSS scales better with buffs. (Specificly with +durability buffs from Doctor Krastinov) Actually the choise of which is better actually kinda depends on what game plan you have: SSS is better in Aggresive decks, Assassin's Blade is better in control/value decks because they can trade 1 more time. I still like the Assassin's Blade buff and i hope it sees play!
