Think, 'its a trap' reverb style.

The main trick is making sure the first few survive for at least 1 turn.

Cost and stats may need some tweaking. One feature I would like to keep, however, is to have the unupgraded be less expensive but scale up slower due to reverb while the upgraded version is more expensive but scales up more quickly... some help with cost theory would be useful here.

Part of a growing series centered around the 'Reverb' mechanic concept. Will post a series once I have enough cards finished.

needs about 3 activations until its worth the cost, I'd wager thats too much. Suggested buff would be to increase base hp by at least 3.

Things to consider:
The card will rarely return to your deck (unless its useless in the fist place outside catapult and deckout shenanigans against a creatureless deck), especially the first few copies just dont have enough hp. later on the shuffle to deck might be a drawback, as the pull effect never works longer than a turn per activation (thats fair I think).
Voodoo is a lot weaker on lowish hp creatures, as you 'loose' the last instance of dmg.

This is my dilema.

I will go with raising the base HP though, since it really does need to have some early use survival chance.

Since you estimated it needs about 3 activations to be useful, I raised its base stats by the equivalent of 2 activations. This is based on assuming that it is reasonable to see about 3 in the course of a game naturally, with a decent chance of getting 2 in the time it would take to cast both.
