General Comments

Vilespine Slayer is a powerful minion that functions as a solid removal card while developing a reasonably sized minion in the process. It provides the same effect as the Assassinate spell for the same cost as long as the Combo effect can be activated, which is rarely an issue for any Rogue deck.


Constructed Play

In Constructed, Vilespine Slayer is a staple card for any Rogue deck. With the removal of Azure Drake from the Standard format, Vilespine Slayer is an excellent replacement to help control the board in the mid-game.



Vilespine Slayer is an excellent card in Arena. Hard removal is always highly desirable in Arena and having a minion attached to it makes this one of the most powerful cards available.
