While nonthreatening at first glance, Patient Assassin possesses the Poisonous ability, allowing him to instantly kill any card he can damage. He also comes onto the field with Stealth which makes him unable to be targeted by attacks or spells. Patient Assassin can be left on the field to dissuade your opponent from playing powerful cards until he is disposed of. Although, it should be noted that he can be killed by an enemy spell that targets all minions, such as Arcane Explosion, or randomly-assigned damage such as Knife Juggler and Arcane Missiles.
Patient Assassin can be combined with Kel'Thuzad for devastating results since you can kill a minion every turn until Kel'Thuzad is removed.
