Wow, love this concept. Like most good cards, it can be great or terrible, depending on circumstances. But you better play it with other secrets, or it will be easy to play around!
"Be excellent to each other." -Bill and Ted
So does this mean secrets will become rogue's identity now? Fun fact - early in hearthstone's design, rogues were intended to have secrets, but instead they were given to paladin because it "lacked a class identity". Seven years later, the problem is still here.
Due to the short pool of secrets for Rogue in standard, it's easy to play around them to reduce their effectiveness.
Unless you destroy this secret, there is no way to play around it, however, but that doesn't make it the most powerful secret, but a secret you have to plan ahead when to play it.
Because you'll want to maximize the value of this card, you'll need to consider the deck your opponents playing.
If they're playing control, they might only play one powerful card per turn. If playing miracle they may play several cards in a turn. You'll need to decide if you want that one powerful card or if your hand size is small enough to take the combo they just played from them.
In the Quest rogue this card can be used as an additional means to accomplish the quest. Against Galakrond Rogue if can be used to get their Galakrond and any of the 1 mana cards they've played that turn.
It's a strong secret but it requires a lot of decision making on the players part to maximize it's potential. Strong, but not broken.
Strong effect but enemy can play around it. The positive note is that Plagiarize can force a bad turn for the opponent.
Really great for your Opponents Swing/Combo.
„Hey pretty neat Kael'thas Turn! Let me try it!"
Also, I like how Rogue Secrets play little Mindgames. Imagine your Opponent checks forDirty Tricks and Ambush, and is afraid to trade into your Minion because of Bamboozle, just to find out that they played suboptimaly and give you Cards.
Long, drawn-out Control Match-ups with Boardclears en masse and an unbelievable amount of greedy cards?

Favorite Secret to date. :D
Thanks to denial, I'm immortal.
FUN card, not that good I think

I love this secret and the power it will bring
Love the flavor, seems decent looking to play around with.
I like this. I need to brush up on what secret techs are available in standard at the moment.

too meta ?
Struggle with Heroic Galakrond's Awakening? I got your back :
Looks like a great secret and it can be used if you know the opponent will have to play something you want next turn
All hail the banshee queen.
Looks like a good secret, glad they keep supporting Rogue secrets.
This has potential to be amazing, but it can also highroll real bad. I think it might replace a Dirty Tricks in secret rogue.
This card seems absurdly strong...
At a low level, this won't seem too strong because when it's played matters a lot. I expect the pros will use this as a counter win condition tool, especially against combo/control oriented decks.
Regardless, I expect this to see play everywhere, and it should be interesting where it ends up seeing the most play.
In any aggro or quest rogue, this is a great card. If you play fast and dirty, and run out of cards (which does happen for anyrogue not running Togwaggle or Galakrond) this is mostly a guaranteed refill- at worst, you get one expensive card, at best you get a lot of cheap spells which you can also use. This seems strictly better than Clever Disguise. Most random class cards are worse than the cards your opponent includes in their deck. This could work wonders in a fast quest rogue, especially too encourage bad play, or get a cheap refill.
Hard to play around while trying to play around other secrets. OP card for low ranks.
Warlock can have fun with
Nice against cassino Mage. But then again, by the time you get all those sweet spells, you're dead or very close to. And no Sorcere's Apprentice to you, filthy Rogue! Unless you copy one too...
Very easy to play around when they know what it is, but if they try a minion and a spell for the other two rogue secrets then you get at least two cards from this.
