This deck is engineered to beat secret mage in the most satisfying way possible.  This is a troll deck, so do not use it to climb unless you are facing over 50% secret mage.  This deck has a 3-pronged attack on secret mage: healing, secret removal, and minion removal.  I have tried different classes and different decks to beat secret mages but this deck does it the most convincingly by far so I am sharing it now.  Over time its winrate will not be 100% but it will still be really high.  So if you are at a ranked floor or legend and want to gatekeep against secret mages, this is the deck for you.  It is incredibly satisfying to consistently win against secret mage with the following situation: them at fatigue and almost cards in hand, no secrets or minions on board either, and you at full health.

 

To play this deck well, I have found that it is important to balance being greedy with your clears, heals, and secret removals and using them earlier on for perhaps not their full value.  Overall, it is better to use your cards aggressively as you have more than enough clears, heals, and secret removals to counter all their plays.  Don't be greedy with the destroy all secret cards by trying to destroy 3 at once, even 2 is good.  Sometimes, you need to use Tidal Wave on one of their minions and some of your minions and totems to get a heal from it.  Try playing around secrets when you don't have secret removal in hand and try to trigger their Flame Wards if you have a card that removes a single secret and they have 2 in play.  It is usually best to destroy secrets when you can and later use removals, especially given that some of your removals heal and you have a lot of cards to heal yourself later.

 

Don't worry about a win condition, you will win in fatigue, so just focus on using your cards to heal, remove their minions, and destroy their secrets. 

I hope you like the idea of this deck, and give it a try if you want to beat secret mages completely and utterly.

    10/10 would rage quit every game played against this with Secret Mage.  Nice deck.

    This comment will keep track of the wins and losses of this deck up to 20.

    So far: 12-3

    update: due to conceding against non mages my mmr dropped so much I am playing against bronze at legend, and the mages there are off meta decks like Spell only mage or Ascendant Scrolls quest mage.  So, I need to gain mmr again to face secret mages again, but when I do that I will get the deck counter up to 20.

    Just played another game and won again with secret destroyer shaman at full health and them at no cards in hand.  So easy.  So the deck is 9-1 now.

    I played another game with this deck just now against secret mage and again, won at 25 health and 5 armor, clear enemy board, no enemy secrets, and enemy almost at fatigue.  And my hand was still full of removals and heals too.

    Can I see the winrate of this game over 20+ games vs secret mage? Because I don't see how this deck beats it. Really no play the first few turns, just all the secret hate cards jammed in one deck which looks like a terrible idea, because not only does it lose to all other decks, but it doesn't really beat secret mage either. Sure, you steal or destroy a secret for 4 mana, but then they just burn you down faster than you can play your expensive cards.

      So far I only played it 8 times against secret mage and I won 7 of those, and it was not even close.  I would be glad to play 12 more to give a sample size of 20 but it will take a while.  Also, this deck is not supposed to beat other decks.  As stated in the description, it’s a troll deck solely designed to beat secret mage, so just concede against other decks.  If you are looking for a deck to play to rank up, again, as said in the guide, this is not the deck for you.  After destroying secrets you have a ton of extra secret removal, clears, and heals, they can’t really kill you by turn 4 unless they get really lucky.  The way I usually won was a secret clear on turn 4 or 3 with the coin and then further secret clear cards or removals or healing later.  They don’t win by turn 5 unless they have very good draws and after that you just heal out of reach and keep destroying their secrets and healing and removing.  Furthermore, there are a lot of turn 3 cards you can play too.  

      Edit: After thinking about it, you are not commenting in good faith as you have clearly not read the description of the deck before commenting on it.  So, I am not going to respond to you any more.  I am still going to get a larger sample size and post it as a comment if anyone is interested.  However, I did want to post the deck with a smaller sample size as it seemed to win very convincingly, and more importantly for a troll deck, in a very satisfying way.

    This looks really fun, and I am only missing the Lurker Below and some commons, I am really tempted!

        Will try that, thanks :) but I feel that sooner or later I'll just give in and craft him, since he's a good swing board card in Shudderwock (and maybe one day Even Shaman will comeback as well) and I am maining Shaman.
