4 mana cost
Gain control of an enemy minion with 3 or less attack until end of turn.

what are your best plays with this card? mine was in arena, I used it on my opponent's Emperor Cobra (http://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Emperor_Cobra) and used it to kill his 8/8 Twilight Drake that had +1/+1 and Taunt from Defender of Argus

I think this card is completely insane and will almost always get you a 2 for 1 trade. I'm curious to know what happens if you steal a minion that has a deathrattle effect. Like if you use Shadow Madness on Harvest Golem and suicide it into their minions, does the deathrattle summoned minion become yours permanently since you controlled the Harvest Golem when it died? that would be some sweet sweet value

Yes, if you control a minion with deathrattle and it dies from your side of the board the effect triggers for you.

yes, you get the deathrattle effect. it's great for loot hoarders or harvest golems.

best play i've had with it in arena:

on turn 3 i played a raging worgen, then after his turn he had a pyromancer, blood imp, and 3/3 taunt (grizzly, made 3/4 with blood imp).

played mindgames turn 4 on the pyromancer. this triggered the 1 to all minions (blood imp dies, taunt now 3/3). run the pyromancer into the 3/3 taunt, killing both. my worgen took 1 damage and is now enraged, so deal 8 dmg to warlock+board clear.

Shadow Madness on something with high health, low attack. Gurubashi Berseker, Mogushan Warden, etc.

Then play a Crazed Alchemist on it to swap the health/attack and blow it up against a powerful minion
