its still garbage.
Weird, I see it a bunch in mill Rogue and it seemed effective there, but then again I haven't seen much Mill rogue past like rank 12.

It's good in Mill Rogue, but Mill Rogue isn't that good. So Vanish is still bad. Also they use Prep+Vanish to make it good.

But then they can't Prep+Sprint, which is what I see all the time.

Vanish is only "good" situationally.  Like, hand's full and board's full -- sure Vanish was great that time.  But against a player who plays single or few big minions and lots of mana, it's not doing much.

Mill Rogue's don't run Sprint though because they want to stay behind their opponent on cards so they can more easily fatigue them without fatiguing themselves, for card draw they usually rely on Coldlight Oracles and maybe 2 cards that let you net 1 card for reliably drawing key cards (Thalnos or Azure Drake are not uncommon).

Vanish is usually used for board clear when the opponent's hand is full or nearly full and is the most expensive spell Mill Rogues run.

Not even Magma Rager actively causes one to straight up lose the game like that.

I really like the idea behind the card (Majordomo), but it's a weird card in that it's not good enough to save you, and it's actually terrible to play when you're ahead. It's also not cheap enough to give to your opponent reliably as a counter to Sylvanas. I hope there's some more interesting cards made like Majordomo with the numbers tweaked a bit more so they're actually playable.

Yep.

As for "why would you ever take Majordomo?", well... this just happened: http://imgur.com/6Nr8er6

Edit: Holy christ this card is garbage

That is the saddest legendary pick I've ever seen. You're even Warrior so Blingtron is extra bad.

I thought my opponent disconnected, because he just roped his turn 6 and almost his entire turn 7. But then this happened.

I assume you still won? Your hand looks pretty strong and you can remove that Bomber for free with a Stormwind play.

Taking a deck that you believed in from 0-2 to 6-2 feels pretty good.

Also that sweet feeling of assured victory you get when your opponent plays a Stone Gargoyle followed by a Mogushan Warden is pretty good too. (He did not wreck me with Hobgoblins and teach me hubris.)

When you hope to get Hobgoblin later on in your draft and you actually get it.

Vitality Totem + Being a Warlock is my new favourite combo. So many cards! (I think I drew 6 cards from tapping before he killed it.)

I faced a Druid in Arena who got Lightwell from Piloted Shredder and then played Mark of the Wild on it. It basically functioned as a 2/7 Stoneskin Gargoyle with Taunt. I couldn't remove it, and I lost.

Just got to enjoy the benefits of my opponent playing Majordomo.

I was Control Warrior vs. Mage.  He plays Majordomo on T8 or T9 with 22 life.  I had a silenced Legendary Shredder, some other minion.

I traded to make him Rag, slammed him to 3 life with Shredder, dropped Dr. Boom, then Whirlwinded to blow up both bombs in his face.

Her: 3 HP
Her Board:
Archmage Antonidas

Me: 30 HP
My Board:
Guardian of Kings, 2 x 1/1s and an Ogre Brute with 1 Health.

I couldn't remove the Antonidas previously so I sent everything face. My hand just has 2 Guardian of Kings in it, usually strong cards, but absolutely terrible against Antonidas. She pings the Ogre to kill it and I'm hoping she has no spells in hand to start the Fireball chain. (I have no reach in my deck having previously played my Hammer of Wrath and two stealth critters.) She plays a spell: Unstable Portal. Fuck I hate that I probably won't be able to come back from this as I will never kill Antonidas. She plays the summon from the Portal on autopilot. It's Lorewalker Cho, followed by the Fireball to my Guardian of Kings.

"Thank you."
"Mistakes were made."
"Well met!"
"You win this one." *concedes"

In Arena. My opponent kills my Piloted Sky Golem and it spawns Baron Rivendare. I play two Piloted Shredders. He Flamestrikes and then insta-concedes.

I queued up at rank 23 with Thief Priest against a Mage whose deck seemed to be composed of crappy taunt minions and random legendaries. A truly degenerate series of events ensued: http://imgur.com/a/XlQgU

(None of the minions pictured are in my deck)
