|Ability||Deals double damage to minions.|
Deals double damage to minions. "The mana coating its tail glows brighter with each kill."
- Bluetip Scorpion suffers the same plight as cards like Phalanxar. While it boasts incredible offensive capability, it is easily removed by pings. With the prevalence of Bloodtear Alchemist, Cassyva and Skorn, such an event is quite likely to occur. Like Phalanxar, Bluetip Scorpion is rarely played.
- Now even though this isn't the best card, it can still find some niche uses and combos, especially when nobody expects it. The easiest to pull of is Bluetip Scorpion followed by a Inner Focus. This allows you to get the full benefit without letting your opponent react. A very niche use for Bluetip comes by using Cosmic Flesh to create a 4/4 Provoke that kills any minion that trades into it. Or even Astral Phasing to give it the health it needs to survive attacking as well as the ability to attack any minion it wants.
If you can make it work its really fun, just don't count on it always working.
