1. General Comments

Fan of Knives is a card that provides a low damage AoE effect and cycles a card. It is quite effective against minion flooding decks, and can be made much more effective through the use of Spell Damage.

2. Constructed Play

Fan of Knives is fairly common in Constructed Rogue decks, but it is mostly a meta choice to deal with the frequency of decks like Secret Paladin and Zoo. If these decks find themselves out of the meta, you can replace Fan of Knives with other options.

3. Arena

Fan of Knives is an average card in Arena. It can be an effective AoE if you are able to combine it with Spell Damage, or your Hero Power Dagger, and is effective against the frequent Paladins that you encounter in Arena.
