Deck thinning is always good, will see play
Also good with all the cards that put the enemy health to 1
Great card for secret paladin definitely will see play in the wild variation
Too strong and annoying.
By The Holy Light!
This is exactly what secret paladin needs
Great card for secret deck thinning.
At this point I have spent too much money on these games to quit.
Now pass me another pack, and lets see what I pull.
I 'woah'd seeing this card. Don't think that secret pally is viable because of it, but it will certainly be included in decks with some secrets in!
If this is what's supposed to make Smythe playable I don't buy it. 1/3 weapons are pretty terrible these days because you can barely get rid of anything without weapon buffs (which Paladin does not have).
Getting a Secret from your deck means you cannot control which one, which is the most important aspect of Paladin secrets since you usually want a specific outcome (although you could make the argument that Avenge and Reckoning are both independently useful).
Still not sold on Secret Paladin. That deck already had better support than currently available and still saw no play. Maybe we get a really good secret that allows for a secret package in a different deck, but other than that this is filler.
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
Well this will be annoying. If secret paladin is good (which at this point I think is very possible) then this will likely be a must have. Casting three secrets and getting to ping minions or face while you are at it is pretty nuts.
I am no longer upset about Desperate Measures leaving Standard :'D
Seems like a really great card - kind of "2 mana draw 3". The damage output of Sword of the Fallen is appropriately weak, and all of the secret payoff/synergy cards you'd run with this only care about having secrets in play, not having cast them from hand like Secretkeeper did. That should make it highly playable without being oppressive (since it's a very weak top deck in the late game).
cards that trigger a free effect are always good.
I am 68 years old and still reach Legend
Actually a decent card, since Paladin has no draw any deck thinning is good. Just gonna suck to draw the secrets naturally.
Now this deck suddenly makes sense. If you can cheat out secrets from your deck, then secret paly might work, I don't think it will be a good deck, but it should be at least a playable deck.

That was the missing piece for the legendary, now just missing one more secret and I think paladin has the most concrete ideas and strong identity to be good this expansion.
With this card, I wonder if a secret paladin could be a thing in Standard.
You won't play Palladin secrets without this (in Standard). The question is only how good a "Secret Palladin" deck will be.
Wow this weapon is amazing for secret synergies. Well, except for Secretkeeper that is
TREMBLE before.... the most legendary dragon that ever existed!
AMAZING secret paladin card. It's effectively paladins version Phase Stalker, and it's finally some good Secret paladin support. Most neutral secret support cards like Mad Scientist and Inconspicuous Rider are not worth it in Paladin because the paladin secrets are very cheap. Like with the formentioned cards you lose more mana playing them, than when you just play the secret alone. But with Sword of the Fallen you cast secrets from your deck (Which tins out your deck, which is super strong.) AND it cheats out 1 additional secret for it's cost.
Secret paladin will still have a problem though, and that's a lack of good secrets. Avenge and Oh My Yogg! are the best secrets in standard after rotation, and good secret paladin support is rotating out. So for Secret paladin to become a viable deck i'm certain were going to see more paladin secrets revealed soon, AND maybe an Desperate Measures, Secret Plan/Mystery Winner reprint? Would be nice.
I'm still a bit skeptical about Secret Paladin, but i think it will probably see some play. If it get's anywhere near the level of support Secret Rogue got in Ashes of Outland, and Hunter/Mage got in Darkmoon Faire, then the deck will be fine! Just a shame you won't get EXP from the Darkmoon faire Oh My Yogg! achievement after FitB releases, because i feel like it's a lot easier to complete it in a Secret Paladin deck.
RNG is only fun, as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something good or bad. If RNG always results in something good, it's not fun.
Looks very strong! If paladin gets more strong secrets, this will totally work.
