    Absurdly strong secret, and would be run even if it'S the only one in the deck.

    Basically makes it so every single minion you play has to be removed via spells or else you get some very unpredictable value out of it. The bigger the minions the greater the punish.

    I expect this to be nerfed to "costs (2) more" within the first month. We're talking about a card that basically gives you a 5-drop at turn 3 that most likely value trades. Even with the amount of possible low-rolls, just the amount of pressure and awkward playarounds this creates will be worth it. It's basically Rat Trap except no way to really play around it over multiple turns.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    The fact it transforms the minion rather than summons a new target is pretty important. You are basically paying 2 mana without knowing the outcome, so a 3 mana boost seems fair and in line with these effects in the past. Indeed, shaman got Explosive Evolution recently, so we know the effect itself is worth about 2 mana. The trade off is the reduced control but additional disruption potential that comes with it being a secret.

    Anyway, the artwork is hilarious, and reminds me a bit of Ogre Ninja. Ogres rarely become rogues, but those who do truly are masters of disguise.

    Absurdly strong. Why did rogue get an evolve effect card? This is basicly Explosive Evolution. And your opponent has to ALWAYS think that every rogue secret might be this card. Absolutely insane, and is probably the reason you play secrets in rogue.

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    It is a powerful card ok but you don't want to play this with deathrattle minions, and especially with Shadowjeweler Hanar and minions that has effects other than battlecry. All of the older secrets (K&C secrets) have more synergies with [Hearthstone Card (Shadowjewler Hanar) Not Found] than newer ones which is odd imo.

    Besides those it is really a cool card and has a great flavor.

    Its strong because a) the transformed minion is more likely to give you a favorable trade, b) its a secret, c) you get to decide whether this procts or not. (by not playing or playing minions).

    This secret does have a negative synergy with taunts or key minions, but its strength more than make up for it.

    This is a great secret, and I'm already excited to play Secret Rogue when the expansion hits. Due to it's power level, this card might be an auto-include for every Rogue deck.

    I'm kind of surprised we didn't see any new anti-secret tech to come out with all the new ones given that Chief Inspector is rotating. So at this point Hunters have Flare (a good card in many respects) & everyone else only has SI:7 Infiltrator (not very good at all since it only hits one secret). Unless I'm forgetting something it's going to be a rough thing to play around.

    This card looks so powerful. This will definitely be that secret everyone plays around for the next year.

    Also that art is so good . .

    I can't think of a class that needs this less. The mana cheats this year are starting off strong

    Like the meme name of this.

    explosive evolution costs the same but this makes the enemy attack into the new minion so they can't always react to what you get, that being said weird mechanic.. since it's a shaman one.

    probably one of the best secret for rogue..based on historical facts, any form of making a minion potentially bigger and have RNG RNG RNG it makes the card great lol

    This secret is broken. 2 mana for evolve x3 is absurd. I hate this card already

    Very high potential for very high high-rolling. Which of course means also high potential for low-rolling. But Rogue has many understatted Battlecry and Combo that will benefit from this evolve effect.

    Very strong - even if secret rogue would not be a thing, this would see play i guess.

    But i think Secret Rogue will be one of the strongest decks this upcoming meta!

    Strong secret that is very hard to play around. Not worth playing on its own, but definitely worth playing for Blackjack Stunner.
