    I don't think this card will see as much inclusion on decks as it will see lots of "created by" shenanigans (and I believe the value it can generate can really be game changing in that scenario). Seeing as how this card tends to counter big clunky minions and those come from big clunky decks, Rogue is already equipped with tons of value and tempo to play against those decks. Rogue's biggest overall weakness is being out aggroed and I don't see this card alleviate that weakness that much, unfortunately. 

    Rating cards on coolness factor rather than predicting power because I like screwing up rating averages (and because I suck at predicting real power levels, but we'll ignore that LUL)

    Free minion cloning is always nice granted its easy to play around but hey you might get a Tirion because your foe forgot this was a card

    I'd compare this to Freezing Trap, as it discourages your opponent from attacking with a large minion and allowing you to more guarantee the secret trigger by removing around that large minion. However, I think Freezing Trap is better as it applies to enemy minions also attacking your minions and acts as a tempo punish with taking the minion out of play with a 2 mana tax. Shadow Clone doesn't prevent the minion from damaging your face and still demands another removal resource if a large minion triggers the secret and you want to keep your copy of the large minion on board. Overall, Shadow Clone is a less consistent secret than Freezing Trap, which may discourage its inclusion in Rogue decks.

    For glory, honor, and gold!

    Glad they stuck through with secrets for rouge until the end, even if this one isn't that strong.  Hope this continues on into the next year (with better support and not just secrets hopefully)/

    One more secret to consider when dealing with them, I like it.

    Nothing more than pack filler. Not great, but better Mirror Entity.

    Seems to slow for what rogues want to do right now.

    Just because of the stealth it makes it an ok card, without it would be meh

    Interesting spice to Secret Rogue, especially since it needs the face being attacked, not just any attack so people can't trip it immediately with a Animated Broomstick.

    This can be lots of fun in stealth rogue. Just another minion added on board for you to hit face with next turn. 

    Unfortunately, common sense isn't as common as it should be.

    Cheaper Mirror Entity, except it's easier to play around and you have to get hit by the thing you copy first. The best thing this has going for it is that your opponent will always assume it's another Rogue Secret, because those ones are actually good.

    I have spoken.

    Seems pretty decent, honestly. Sure, sometimes you're going to end up with a terrible low stats minion because of it, but at the very least your opponent probably won't remove that minion thanks to the Stealth, giving you a free set-up for any Stealth synergies.

    Decent secret, specially since the minion it generates can't be easily removed due to stealth
