The "Enrage" keyword will be replaced by "while damaged" in an upcoming patch.

Announced in today's Designer Insights with Peter Whalen, Hearthstone's "Enrage" keyword will be replaced by "While Damaged" in a future patch. Whalen noted that the reason for this change is clarity. Though Hearthstone keywords are typically meant to to be used as shorthand for more complicated effects, Enrage is only one word shorter is than "while damaged" and no less clear.

You can see an example of the new card templating below:

Though a date has not yet been provided for when these changes will take place, I'd be surprised if they were not made before The Witchwood is released in mid-April.

Actually, it's a little more then "clarity". You know, also battlecry is only a word less then when played.... The news is that they will never support directly an enrage archetype, we will never have a card like "battlecry: discover a enrage minion".

Well, not much to say, the mechanic itself stays the same. There were never many enrage minions and nothing to support them, besides some warrior tools like Rampage which never saw play anyway.
