1. General Comments
Sudden Betrayal was released in the Kobolds and Catacombs expansion and its reveal represented the first time that Rogue had been able to use Secrets. The card is in keeping with Rogue's synergy with Tempo. Against some decks, Sudden Betrayal will almost guarantee killing a minion, but against decks with smaller minions, it will often be almost useless.
2. Constructed Play
In Constructed, Sudden Betrayal's main use is as a way to slow down decks that rely almost entirely on big minions. In general, Rogue will have more consistent options with which to do this.
Sudden Betrayal is a poor card in Arena, as it is generally easy to play around. If used early in the game, you would tend to be better off developing a minion instead. Late in the game, your opponent probably has a small minion that they are willing to throw away to trigger it. The best use is if you can time it so that your opponent has two medium minions on the board and nothing else. In those situations, Sudden Betrayal can do a lot of damage.
