General Comments

Due to its low Health total, Cursed Castaway functions mainly as an expensive removal card. Although Mana intensive, the fact it replaces itself with a Combo card when it dies offers some late-game sustain in a more control-orientated decks.


Constructed Play

Cursed Castaway is generally not good enough for Constructed play due to the wealth of removal options available to Rogue. Its home is in a removal heavy deck which relies on using the card advantage gained from the Castaway to keep the board clear through use of cards such as Eviscerate.



In Arena, Cursed Castaway will usually just be a poor removal option for Rogue when compared to the good removal options Rogue has at its disposal. It can be used as filler for decks with few removal cards, or if your pool of Combo cards is strong.
