Why is this macro not working

Death Knight
Just noticed this macro is not casting UNholy Frenzy on my gargoyle.

#showtooltip Summon Gargoyle
/cast Blood Fury(Racial)
/use Malevolent Gladiator's Badge of Victory
/cast Summon Gargoyle
/cast [target=Ebon Gargoyle] Unholy Frenzy
/stopmacro [harm]

anyone know why?
why would you cast unholy frenzy on your gargoyle? it has no effect on garg since it doesnt benefit from melee haste

use frenzy on yourself
Unholy frenzy increasesmelee AND ranged haste
Unholy frenzy increasesmelee AND ranged haste
gargoyle doesnt benefit from ranged haste it benefits from spell haste. range haste and spell haste are not the same thing.

general haste from gear adds to all of these
ok gotcha man appreciate the heads up
It doesn't work because there's a little bit of lag time between when you cast gargoyle and when the gargoyle shows up.

If you try:

/cast summon gargoyle
/target ebon gargoyle

using the macro once won't target the gargoyle. if you hit it like 3-4 times then it will.
You don't need to target Gary. As mentioned already, he doesn't benefit from it anyway, so that's wasted damage.

Gary is the snail in ToT. Timmy is the ghoul.
Gary is the Gargoyle. ToT = Throne of Thunder? Gary's been around a lot longer than that.
