Strategy[]

Possessed Villager is a cheap sticky minion, providing two 1/1s for the 1 Mana. It works well in Zoolock decks, providing a good target for trading buffs like Abusive Sergeant and Power Overwhelming, and resists AoE removal due to its Deathrattle.

It also works well with cards like Knife Juggler and Darkshire Councilman which have effects that trigger when minions are summoned. However, in comparison with Argent Squire, it is more likely to lose non-temporary buffs, such as Defender of Argus' buff.
