    After having played this card myself I have to say that it is very solid and a staple in any mage secret deck.

    Sometimes it’s better to take a secret in your hand than an activated secret

    Vanilla body + draw a card is always good. And I think mage needs only another agressive secret (besides mirror, hopefully better a bit) to make secret mage work. On the other hand, deck trimming and directed draw makes this card ubiquitously strong in a majority of the mage decks that run at least 1 secret. If mge will be played in the next expansion, this card could be one of its highlights. (it surely won’t be Pyros, lol)

      Don’t be so certain about Pyros’ faith. We haven’t yet seen the Mage quest which – regarding to Flame Geyser and Pyros – just might be “Summon X Elementals”. Then Pyros would be a great option for the quest since it (if it doesn’t get transformed or silenced) adds two extra elementals to your hand. Just wait and see, there are a lot of cards that haven’t been revealed.

    Will be a core card for tempo mage. And common, so great for arena too!

    I despised Mad Scientist. So yeah, I hate this card.

    Good push for Secret Mage. We’ll still need a new tempo secret that will replace the Effigy’s niche spot though.

      May even be auto-include for freeze mage?

        well freeze mage in standard’s gonna be significantly nerfed due to losing ice lance. In wild, I don’t see any reason to play this card over mad scientist

          There are different situations when this is better than having mad scientist… i.e. Already having an ice block in play and being able to draw another for later

    It’s a 2 mana 2/3 draw a card that synergizes with almost your whole deck.

    Oh, yea.

    Hmm… duplicate may be usable.. in some weird combo mages like Exodia mage.

    I always try to make a good secret mage deck but, unfortunately, I never really succeed… Hopefully, this will be the good time.

    Curves perfectly into the secret you get and then Kabal crystal runner. Could be good if mage gets a good secret.

      Or even a Kirin Tor mage so you push out that secret you drew for free.
