Core set[]

Two copies of regular Plague Scientist (Core) are obtained for raising rogue to level 3.

Two copies of golden Plague Scientist (Core) are obtained for winning 50 games as rogue.

Plague Scientist (Core) is uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Strategy[]

Plague Scientist is a minion with a very strong effect, as it's essentially a poisonous minion with Charge. It can be used to allow any minion you have on the board to trade evenly. It has high potential in a Tempo Rogue deck, as the ability to trade in a cheap minion while developing another in the process can provide a massive tempo boost. However, the card is dependent on having minions on board, and not as flexible as other options like SI:7 Agent.

In Wild, it can be comboed with Unstable Ghoul as a delayed, but almost guaranteed board clear, filling the Rogue's need for a powerful board clear.

Plague Scientist is a strong Arena card, as any hard removal is usually desirable.
