When people heard about Creepy Doll, they were hoping for Wizards to out-do their old Stuffy Doll, a rare from Time Spiral. For 5 mana, it gave you a 0/1; not very impressive. But it’s indestructible, and whenever damage is dealt to Stuffy Doll, it deals damage to the player you chose when he came into play. Stuffy Doll can also deal 1 damage to itself and therefore hurt your chosen opponent. Creepy Doll isn’t as good in Multiplayer formats, but it was played in Standard while it was in, creating a creature that made your opponent weary to swing into the red zone with. All-in-all, much better than Creepy Doll.

Creepy Doll is interesting, however. Also a 5 drop, but a 1/1 indestructible instead, that whenever it deals damage to a creature, you flip a coin, and if heads it kills the creature. Like Stuffy Doll, it makes your opponent’s think twice about attacking, but it’s much less effective as a deterrent than Stuffy Doll, as it only kills the creature half the time. But I enjoy the flavor text; “A child’s porcelain doll went missing one night, as did a pair of kitchen shears and the town magistrate.” It’s a flavorful card, but not really playable outside of limited.
