I think the card is fine. You need to use a lot of position-altering spells to make it shine, and Songhai doesn’t like to be without options in hand. And honestly, Songhai doesn’t want to spend a whole card to deal only 2 damage, so your opponent has to play into this minion quite heavily to make it worth your while.
And if you’re using MDS or Juxtaposition to get a proc for this card, you don’t have it later for a Backstab, which could’ve been greater value.
It’s easy to talk about cards when they truly shine, but I think for people who have played this card, you’ll find that there are far more instances in which it just sits in your hand, and never feels good to play. It’s the moments when it’s insane that we talk about the most. It’s the moments when it’s terrible that go under the radar.
