A nice little giant killer card, cheap and can take out the biggest minions.
While vulnerable to AoE, this card is impossibly useful in any situation where the Rogue wants a cheaper version of Assassinate in a future turn.
This card also allows you to tell a lot about your opponent.
Do they immediately play AoE removal? If so, that's 1 less board wipe they have and you know they have a card they are worried about having spot-removed. This is important information to have in the early game.
In addition, you can use this card (as Akuma said) to kill 0-attack enemies, such as Priest's Lightwell.
The perk of that is that if they don't have spot-removal for it, they might have to attack it directly, costing them a stronger minion to get rid of it once you've already used it to kill their lightwell.
As his name implies, you can also keep him in stealth for a long time, choosing not to attack with him, until either the opponent plays their board wipe cards (letting you know they've likely got something big coming your way), and preventing them from playing any Legendary cards out of fear that they'll get sniped.
Just like the Blood Imp and other low-health stealthed minions, besides AoE, remember that he is vulnerable to
, or any future cards that have random damage (so it's not targeted)
Epic voice acting.
The flavor text of this card is friggin' hysterical.
He’s not really that patient. It just takes a while for someone to walk by that he can actually reach.
keep in mind that will prevent your target from being destroyed, since he needs to be actually damaged. learned that hard way -.-
I absolutely love this guy. Might not be the greates card i admit it but he is just so nice... Can Be good if used With Shattered sun cleric/stormwind champion/etc.
But mainly you just cant forget that audio. When i do something stealthy/assasin like in a game his attack audio is the first thing i hear. That ,,Goodbye,, remains in your head.
I might be badly mistaken and just gotten lucky in games, but if this gets taunt (say via Defender of Argus) doesn't that lock your opponent out from attacking anything without taunt until they find some way to remove it?
Although I really like this card due to its ability of taking out the big minions, as HelloKitty said, one of its downfalls is its susceptibility to AoE: Arcane Explosion, Flamestrike (Mage), Consecration (Paladins), Holy Nova (Priests). Also, even though he is in stealth mode, he can be attacked by Arcane Missiles (Mage) and die easily. However, I do not know if it is affected by Mass Dispel. (Need to check on them and update my comment)
Whenever I use this card, the opponents quickly use an AoE ability to take out this little assassin, which might negate the use of this card, but gives you a little room in later turns.
Those poor patients, all they wanted was to get better and go home to their families...
