    It´s very good but not a 5/5 its a 3/5

    Yes it casts two secrets from the deck, good tempo-value. But you get it out on turn 4-6 with and thats very late.

    The secrets will be just ok on mid-late game and with only 3 secrets often you have already your secrets out of deck or just one in deck or 1 or two are already active.

    IDK its just feels so much weaker than secret rogue with hanar and blackjack. I dont believe that this package is good enough in 2022.

    This is maybe the easiest 5* of the set (either this or the Paladin reprint of Zilliax). We’ve seen 2 secrets now, both of which are good enough to see play in my opinion; and 4 mana to cast 2 secrets from deck on a 3/4 body is VERY freaking good. Cards like this are obviously powerful, but you have to tie the rating of them to the power of the support package. Rogue can coin this out on turn 3 to have a 3/4 that effectively Saps the next enemy minion played AND summons a 3/4 stealth minion if your opponent plays a spell–WOW, what a play.

    Any card that has deck thinning attached to a tutor effect is very powerful, and this one happens to cast from deck a card type that is really awkward to draw. I almost feel like they shouldn’t have made this have a battlecry; maybe they should have just had the Combo effect. Guaranteeing deck thinning is strong, and we’ve seen exactly this effect see play on a 3 mana 2/4 body.

      Just want to point out – most of the time, it is NOT a 4 mana cast 2.

      Fantastic card nonetheless.

        I mean if you’re referring to just playing on curve, sure; it’s not a 4 mana cast 2. But if you look at it in terms of its value for mana cost, it’s essentially a free 3/4. There are so many ways you can enable its combo in Rogue though: you can Prep, you can Shadowstep, you can cast that new 2 mana deal 3 spell, you can coin this out on turn 3…

        I’d argue that most of the time, this IS played as a 4 mana cast 2.

        We do agree–fantastic card nonetheless.

    Seems pretty good to me, but I not as amazing as people seem to think of it. The baseline is decent, but not great by any means: I don’t think Rogue wants to play a 4 mana 3/4 on turn 4, it’s pretty slow tempo, and the fact that the secret is random isn’t ideal. Remember that the 3 mana 3/3 that casted a secret from your hand and drew a card saw very little play overall: if a secret focused tempo deck comes up, then I can see this being good in it, but it doesn’t strike me as a stable of the class. The combo part is very good of course, but comboing a 4 mana cards isn’t super easy, exceptionally so in a tempo deck. A good part of it though is that it does thin your deck quite a bit, and that’s something that Rogue really benefits from. All in all, a good addition to a deck which might or might not prove to be strong enough.

      This is the only thing making the secret package even remotely playable, the legendary secret support card they printed is an absolute joke lol

        I mean the secrets themselves are actually pretty strong. Kidnap is definitely playable, and Sticky Situation is just better than Cat Trick was, and that saw plenty of play.

        To reply to the original comment though: Rogue wouldn’t want to play a 4 mana 3/4 on 4 *IF* that’s all it was. But fortunately for this card–it’s not all it is. 4 mana 3/4 that casts 2 or 4 mana worth of spells WITH Combo inherently meaning that you’re doing other stuff that turn…that’s a LOT of tempo and/or value all wrapped around a 3/4.

        Essentially, this card deck thins 1-2 cards that you DON’T want to draw; it casts secrets that become really awkward to play around, and it provides a body that can trade with opposing early game minions. The 3 mana 3/3 that cast secrets from hand is and was patently just worse than this card. 1–it required you to have secrets in hand; 2–Rogue’s secrets back then were not as good as the ones now with the exception of that one that drew you 3 cards. It’s also worth noting that Secret Rogue back then was perfectly viable and decent–it just centered around Shadowhunter Hanarr, which was a card you often played pretty late in the game to create a really nasty board state for your opponent to answer.
