yes it doesn't destroy the minion . but look at " humility " the spell of paladin ,
it changes the attack of a minion to 1 but it costs 1 mana . and still it doesn't destroy the minion :)

Assume a 2/2 minion.

HM's does nothing to limit the damage potential of the 2/2 minion. He will still do 2 damage. The only time HM's limits the potential, is if you are trading into that 2/2 (now 2/1) using a 1 attack source.

Now Humility. Humility cuts the damage potential of that 2/2 minion in half. If you swing with 2 1 attack sources, instead of 4 damage, it is 2 damage. If you swing with a 2 attack source, it is only 1 damage, not 2.

You see it all the time, Attack is generally worth more than Health.

Very simple answer, Humility is better. Cutting down the damage to 1, is better than cutting the health to 1. This is why people when they trade on the board, will opt to trade to keep more creatures at low health rather than fewer with higher health since it keeps their damage potential higher, but of course you try to avoid that if they have aoe.

Cutting the attack allows you to attack multiple minions into the target without dieing. HM only makes it so you can trade one minion into another.

So say you play a rag and I have 2 4/5 yetis. With Humility I can trade both yetis into rag and still have 4/4 yetis. With HM I lose one of the yetis.
