It should count twice because it dies instantly and is reborn, but the first summon doesn't progress the quest.

Yeah we're looking into a way to fix this - Scourge Rager is just too eager to die it seems. 😅
Essentially, Battlecries actually happen right before a minion enters play (if you play Buffet Biggun with a Dun Baldar Bridge in play, the summoned Recruits from his Battlecry get buffed before Biggun himself gets buffed). So Scourge Rager dies before the game actually sees it played.
We agree that, while technically "correct", the current functionality is VERY counter to what you would expect with Jungle Giants or Making Mummies.
