I would really like to know how this card is supposed to work! Yesterday I played a match and left my enemy with 1 hp, then I played torch bearer and nothing happened. I thought maybe it count's as deployed only when in attack/defense zone but it still had no effect. I was against a Dragon deck but it had no effects on board that could prevent that dmg.
I'm asking because I noticed that if Nysrugh the Hungry is deployed and he eats a demon demonic disciple (killing it) when Nysrugh dies and the demon come back from the graveyard the demonborn get the buff. And btw it does not get buffed by creature in command zone.
