General Comments

Most Deathrattle decks will not be interested in Reckless Experimenter, where the expensive minion's effect can be a downside just as often as it can be an upside. Reckless Experimenter is most commonly seen in Mecha'thun Priest decks, where it can be used to play Coffin Crasher and 2 copies of Ticking Abomination to set up a Mecha'thun trigger.


Constructed Play

Reckless Experimenter is a key combo card in Mecha'thun Priest, where it can be used to trigger Coffin Crasher and two Ticking Abominations to drop Mecha'thun from hand before blowing up the board. It does not see much play outside of Mecha'thun deck, but there is decent chance that Reckless Experimenter card could see play in other combo decks in the future.



A 5 Mana 4/6 is not particularly impressive in the Arena, where the ability on Reckless Experimenter is more likely to be a downside than an upside. Unless you are running incredibly low on 5 drops, you can probably do better than Reckless Experimenter in the Arena.
