    Looks pretty insane and an autoinclude in wild secret mage.

    I'm looking at this card and telling myself, that this is essentially a Fireball on a stick. But I have a question - what card would you cut, in order to include this in the current tempo mage deck? If we look at the deck-list in VS:

    https://www.vicioussyndicate.com/aluneth-mage-4/

    the whole deck tries to counter popular competitors like Big Priest (Potion of Polymorph) and other Tempo/Miracle Mages (Loatheb), while the rest of the cards build the well-known core of this archtype. I might be mistaken, but I don't think that a burn mage would run this 5 mana dude right now, just because he could be too slow in the current aggressive meta.

    Medivh's Valet on steroids. The fact that that 6 damage can go face is insane. I'm just wondering what wild Aluneth mage will cut for this.

    This should definitely see play, tho the most important aspect is, the secret has to stay up till the next turn (im assuming ur not doing 8 mana combo ...), which can be problematic. Ice Block in Wild is the safest option, but not all mage decks run that. Nevertheless, very strong card in a right deck. And remember, the 6 damage can go face!

    Medivh's Valet: who are you?

    Cloud Prince: I am you but bigger.

    Looks very strong, because not only can it deal six damage to any enemy, but it's also an Elemental, which might convince any Frost Lich Jaina to include this card for burst damage and instant healing.

    Very strong card. Basically an extra fireball + body if you have a secret up. I am sure this will find a place in some tempo mage deck. But also control/freeze mage can use it as a removal tool. And elemental tag as bonus.

    There is no denying the amount of value here. Secret decks got a whole lot stronger.

    This thing will for sure spice up the arena play. Note: it‘s a Common! 

    From now on you want to trigger mage secrets as fast as possible!

    This makes drafting mage decks kinda difficult tbh, secrets are simply to inconsistant and good players generally don’t fall for them. But this card and the 2/3 bordclear should be worth i

    Winner winner chicken dinner

    I hope we will see some new mage offensive secret(s?)  as well to support this. Although that other minion makes the secrets already huge tempo plays. 

    I can see some curve forming: Arcane Flakmage into Kirin Tor Mage into Arcane Keysmith into Cloud Prince...nice.

    Maybe throw in a Mirror Image on turn 1 as well to protect your Flak on turn 2? Interesting idea.

    All we need is a good one mana minion that goes well with this, or just use Raid the Sky Temple? Always better than pass I guess.

    This is legit, but the secrets currently available in standard are not.

    good lord.

    conditional fireball on a stick with really strong curve with existing cards.  this will see play. 

    Here are just some of my current decks: Highlander Thief Rogue, Highlander Obelisk Priest

    No, that's wrong!

    This looks like a control card thankfully.  Secret control mage could use more support, but I'm hoping the freeze variant isn't the dominant version.  It probably will be though in standard.

    Ridiculously strong card on its own, but Secret/Control mage needs support right now for this to see play. I don't see this being included in Conjurer Mage, since this is unplayable in a deck that doesn't run secrets. Definitely an inclusion in Wild decks though.
