think about it this way. do you really want the baconator combo to rise again?
this + saberspine seal x2 + mirror meld = 24 damage at 7 mana
songhai spell rant
yes its an alternate chakri avatar, but it has the same amount of stats and its cheaper. its like comparing katara to kaido assassin all over again. sure its less threatening on its own, but thats not what songhai does. its way stronger than chakri because of burst potential and besides, there are 9 spells in songhai that are 2 mana and under that trigger this cards effect. its trivial to activate its effect and it has rush to immediately capitalize on those +2 PER SPELL buffs. its just ridiculously OP at that point.
abyss nerf rant
do all you old timers remember when nightsorrow assassin got nerfed from a 3 mana 4/1 rush to the pathetic thing it is today? apparently a rush minion with 4 attack was too strong and then fusion decides that "hey i think a 1 mana rush minion with potentially super high attack is a great idea. now lets give it 3 health so it survives the massive face hit that nearly OTKs the enemy general. let them deal with the leftovers and then ill just play another one next turn cause thats fair."
you could say its a little too strong.
at the very least drop it to +1 attack.
you could even call it a scholar or mystic instead of an assassin and make it draw cards instead of gain attack and rush
