|Golden Knife Vendor||400||50|
- Knife Vendor damages the opponent's hero first for damage calculation. However, deaths are not processed until the Battlecry resolves, meaning Knife Vendor can cause ties.
Knife Vendor can serve as an accelerator or even a finisher in very aggressive decks, particularly Face Hunter. The combination of instant damage and a reasonable body make it well worth the (relatively) high mana cost. Since it deals direct damage, it's also great for bypassing Taunts and Secrets.
The downside will typically be completely meaningless against a Midrange, Control, or Combo deck. There is some inherent risk to running Knife Vendor however, since your life total matters much more in an Aggro mirror.
