Why is Defias Ringleader Considered Bad?
the coin of course is nice, but you don't always go last. I play miracle deck and I usually want to save the coin for later
if you combo it later in the game, it won't be that effective
Coin + SI agent
Coin + deadly poison
Coin + backstab + 6/6 vancleef
If you run miracle rogue:
turn 5 Coin + gadgetzan auctioneer + conceal
so many classes have ways to deal with the extra 2/1 spawn that it's not worthwhile.
And as others mentioned, if you don't use coin, it's hard to combo it.
against mage: you coin defias on t2 next turn if he fireball you wasted your coin to make mage waste 2 mana and you get a 2/2... pretty meh, the same goes ofc for rogue and druid.
shaman can easily kill 2 minions on t2 then u wasted 2 cards and he 1 so hes usually in advantage after that. its good together with knife juggler though I use that combo in one of mu rogue decks ^^

Faerie dragon is more reliable. A great card to coin into, a great turn 2 card, especially when buffed. Annoys those that have a spell removal based hand, and forces them to play a minion if they don't have a minion to trade or a weapon.
Makes the mage matchup much more bearable too. Coin -> faerie dragon -> mage can't do much other than a blind arcane missile, summon a turn 2 minion or just fireblast to your face. With some removals in your hand to back up faerie dragon you can get some free pressure.
