    I just find this card funny.

    Sapping a card for 2 turns is kinda good, but in 2023 most board based decks tend to have loads of reload and snowball potential that this card can never realistically do more than annoy.

    The fact that you can never use this against some targets like titans, rush/charge minions, etc. makes it even worse. If there is a silver lining, you can use this against your own key minions so they'll always be alive three turns later to do whatever it is youre planning.

    I cant for the life of me understand why this card needed a condition at all to trigger. Maiev Shadowsong wasnt good 5 years ago, so what makes anyone think this card needed a condition to balance it out?

    I'm not entirely sure when you'd play this. If you've lost 1/3 of your health, or more if you have Prince Renathal or something, by turn 4, most of the time you're in a bad spot, but there probably aren't a lot of single targets you can put on time out to make a huge difference. Maybe in the mid-late game you game you can temporarily remove a large taunt or some aura buff minion. You can do this three times, but because of how locations work it's slow as hell.

    It's a decent card, but not super impactful. I can see it working well for aggro as a way to remove problematic taunts just long enough to get the face.

    I wonder if there will ever be a way to make dormant minions stay dormant longer? Then this could be much more powerful.
