    Completely reasonable. Spicy with the new 1/3 too.

    Good stats for a 2-drop and if it survives it basically draws and plays a card from your deck for free. Preeetty good.

    Feels like a completely reasonable card. Slates into Secret Highlander Hunter on day 1.

    Good for Secret Highlander Hunter or Wild Even Hunter. Only thing that give me pause in Standard is you can't play until turn 4 to get a single free Secret - that's a little late for a 2/3 minion if your opponent has any kind of board already.

    Finally I can play decent beast secret decks! together with subject-9, this was this missing piece for the deck. And we are still waiting on more reveals.

    I like the flavor. And it has a good body, we will see it a lot.

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    I reiterate what i said for Dragonbane: Even Hunter says hi.

    (And i Secretly hope Wild Even Hunter can be at least as fast as Secret Mage and pay them with their own money).

    As I noted in our initial card review, I can see this in a Wild Even Hunter alongside Genn Greymane. Secrets are Even-costed, so the combination with them and Steamwheedle Sniper seems obvious to me.


    If you have the time please check out my custom expansion, The Trials Within Us!

    An amazing card for Wild even hunters, and even if you are just playing normal hunter, chances are you will be playing secrets. This doesn't have bad stats, and being able to get a free secret is both great tempo and value. This can be played on turn 2, then hero power on the following turn, or on turn 4 combined with hero power. Remember, hunter secrets are worth 2 mana, so spending 2 mana to get a random secret isn't bad. Especially when you also deal 2 damage and don't have to spend a card on it.

    Good stats for its mana cost and more than decent battlecry, thinning your deck while putting a Secret on board.

    I do like this a lot. It has some serious potential with some version of secret hunter. Totally unclear what the best build would be for a secret hunter, but whatever it is, this is in it.

    I know that mage secrets are stronger, but thanks to Arcanologist, Kirin Tor Mage, Kabal Lackey, Mad Scientist and others, I think this card definitely shouldn´t be underestimated. Could be potentially very strong.

    Make your hero power "draw" a card for hunter? Sounds insane to me.

    Yeah, as if hunter needs more secret pulls.

    What do they want really ? Build a deck with 16 secret and 14 secret puller ?

    I mean; ok, card is good, even better, crocolisk stats with card pull but secret hunter has been tried, saw ladder also. We are always turning back and back again.

    Whether or not a meme, I'm definitely making a secret even hunter in wild day one. This or steamwheedle sniper on 3 just seems fun.

    I liked! Good body with good effect, and can be trigged multiple times!

    I'm sorry for my bad english :)

    Coining this out and Hero Power on 2 might look good, but it's not really. But later on it could be strong combined with Dwarven Sharpshooter. Even in dedicated Secret decks this might not even see play :/

    Even in non-even hunter (heh), for 4 mana you get a 2/3, deal 2 dmg to the face, draw a secret from your deck and immediately play it. Secret hunter is already a good deck, this will be a staple.

    It seems like it should be meta-defining, but it's not quite. Highlander Hunter already runs 6 secrets, and it's hard to imagine running much more than that. It's a fantastic card that should have a place in that deck, but having reached legend with it when it was new to the meta, I think a big skill-test with that deck is when and how to play each secret. I'm not sure if cheating them out randomly actually helps despite the card draw. I think it fits better in a mid-range secret deck that maybe runs 2-4 different secrets, but multiple copies of some of them.

    Yeah, I don't think it's meta-defining. In theory it should replace Masked Contender in a Highlander Hunter deck. It's got stats for its mana cost and it's a beast. You'll need to play it on turn 4 to get immediate value out of it though, but tempoing it out at 2 mana should still be a solid play.

    Free secrets are interesting, but there will be times when this is just a 2 mana 2/3. I mean its a beast and its got fine stats, so its probably fine. 

    To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of the women.
