For 6 mana, this card provides a straight forward 7/7 in total stats, split between the two minions, if it is able to activate its Battlecry. Also makes for a powerful combination with Brann Bronzebeard, as well as being a good target for cards that buff minions in your hand, allowing you to put out multiple large bodies at once.

It also works very well with transformation effects, turning the near-useless 1/1 into something much more useful. Evolve gets two 7-mana minions out of them, but single-target transformation effects like Master of Evolution, Transmute Spirit, Polymorph: Boar, and Recombobulator allows you to keep the solid 6/6 body.

While a terrible result for cards like Moonglade Portal, this is a powerful minion in its abilities to render Secrets such as Snipe, Potion of Polymorph, and Sacred Trial near-useless.

  • This card's summon quote is a reference to the famous scene in the 1983 movie Scarface where the protagonist Tony Montana says the same line (referring to his grenade launcher-mounted gun, shortly before firing it). Fittingly, the Big-Time Racketeer appears to have a similar weapon in hand, although in this case he appears to be referring to his ogre associate, who can be seen standing behind him in the card art.
