1. General Comments

Edwin VanCleef is often a 6/6 for 3 Mana, due to the number of cheap cards that most Rogue decks play. It can also be a gamebreaking card when played as 10/10 or bigger in the very early turns of the game. The Coin, Counterfeit Coin, Backstab, Preparation, and Shadowstep are 0-Mana cards which are all regularly used to power up Edwin. Rogue decks also play multiple 1-Drops, which means that an enormous early Edwin is not a rare sight.

2. Constructed Play

Edwin VanCleef is a stable card in Constructed Rogue decks. Nearly all Rogue decks contain 0-Mana spells, as well as 1-Mana minions such as Fire Fly and Swashburglar. On top of that, many Rogue decks make use of cheap spells to activate cards like Vilespine Slayer and SI:7 Agent, which means that Edwin becomes a natural fit in those decks.

3. Arena

Edwin is a good card in Arena, as it will usually be playable as a 4/4 for 3 Mana. At that cost, it represents a slightly above average card, but there will also be occasions when it is significantly bigger than 4/4, and win a game that you may otherwise have lost.
