This is a pretty weird card, and honestly a lot of the time it winds up being an "Impending Doom that you have to sacrifice a unit to play". I'm currently using it as a situational market card in a Dawnwalker-focused deck. Its ultimate is pretty sweet if you can pull it off.

A couple of points of note for its ultimate ability that I've noticed while playing it:
- The "less health" is "less current health" not maximum health. So if you fire off a Torch at an intended target or buff Mazag with a Weather the Storm, you will be able to mind control a unit that normally has >=4 maximum health.
- The stolen unit it is made ready immediately, much like a unit affected by Madness, even though this is not explicitly stated on the card.
- Unlike with Madness, the stolen unit will not be returned to your opponent at the end of your turn.

Might have a place in mono-shadow or slower Stonescar lists (Madness -> Mazag to sacrifice the madnessed unit -> steal another unit on board anyone?!) but it feels like a niche card at time of writing.
