Just opened Skeleton Knight...underwhelmed.

7/4 for 6 is so-so, easily removed.  The joust puts him back in your hand, so maybe you trade him then recast him?  I could try him in my ramp deck, where most of my minions cost a lot, I suppose.

Skeleton knight is unbelievably awful.

It's a 6 mana Azure Drake with the draw moved to the deathrattle, and a chance to whiff the draw, and the guarantee that the draw will be your 6 mana Azure Drake, which, given the other disadvantages, is worse than a normal draw.

Would he be played if the deathrattle was guaranteed? He still would do nothing vs. aggro.

which, given the other disadvantages, is worse than a normal draw.

, which makes the 6 mana Azure Drake even worse than it already was, which makes the draw even worse than it was, which makes the 6 mana Azure Drake even worse than it already was...

Therefore, Skeleton Knight is infinitely worse than Azure Drake.

It's actually a recursion, kind of like the way .54545454 repeating  is less than .555555555555 repeating.

But I'm not too worried about the overstatement.

Skeleton Knight was decent in that one brawl where he was in your premade deck, since the decks were bad enough that repeatedly playing a 6 mana 7/4 could actually out-value your opponent over time.

So it depends on the board?
