Craft This Card: Knife Juggler

Knife Juggler
“Put this apple on your head.”

Many Hearthstone cards include special effects that make them stand out from the rest. The Knife Juggler is exactly that kind of card and a worthwhile addition to your collection.

At 2 mana to summon this minion, the Knife Juggler’s little gnome body with  2 attack / 2 health is nothing special. This fellow’s skill with knives is what makes him dangerous. The card’s effect deals 1 damage to a random enemy for every minion you summon.

The strength of Knife Juggler is it rewards you for something you will likely do anyway: summoning minions. In the first few turns of a Hearthstone game, many minions have only 1 or 2 health. If the knife throw helps kill off another minion, you can gain an early game advantage.

The Knife Juggler plays  well with others. You will also get a 1 damage knife thrown for minions summoned by Battlecry, Deathrattle or other card effects.
