The Rusted Legion's training leaves a little to be desired. He hasn't even had a tetanus shot yet!

Strategy[]

Rustsworn Initiate can be useful as a reasonably sticky minion. It fits best in a token deck that uses a handful of spells, making some use of both of this card's effects.

As a source of Spell Damage, Rustsworn Initiate is not ideal. Most Spell Damage cards want to be played on the same turn as a spell, which is very difficult to do with this card. Kobold Geomancer and Bloodmage Thalnos are better neutral Spell Damage cards for 2 mana. However, he can be an interesting choice when combining with Rally! since you can re-summon him and the Imp at the same time.
