    Me wild player. Me happy. This doesn’t destroy them like Eater does but feels less bad to play in a matchup where it doesn’t do anything.

    Costs cheap and is premium stats. Copying secrets is yes arguably slightly worse than destroying them, but cards like EoS were too slow and garbage stats.

    In Wild Secret Mage also can’t really play around their own secrets very well since everything dies to Rune and Counterspell is pretty good.

    Probably overrated card. In most cases you’d want to instead destroy the secrets. Moreover since you get the same secrets as the opponent they’ll know exactly what the secrets are (though so will you) which makes them far weaker.

    I can only see this being used in control decks. And more broadly if there are several good secret decks in the meta which is very unlikely. 3 stars, a nice card to have “just in case”

    Whaaaatttt??? Is this a tech card if secrets meta goes out of control?

    Guess they’re no longer secrets at that point lol.

    Guys, I think I know what Secret Paladin is going to also use!

    Instant 5 Stars, especially since Hearthstone knows how ridiculous Secret Rouge is going to be.

    I think you would rather just destroy them. Unless secrets are overwhelmingly prevalent, you would never run this realistically

    So this is going to probably be in a lot of decks the stat line is good enough that even if you go against a non secret class it’s not a total waste and if you do it’s a solid boost.

    Wondering if this activates Shadowjeweler Hanar? Probably not, but would be interesting if it does.

      100% it does not. Hanar specifies that you have to *PLAY* the secret, which means you the player have to use it from your hand. Card effects, either summon or secret related do not count as playing a card.

    Love it, might be the only thing that has me hoping for a Standard secret meta.
