Splitting Image Card Review
I always like seeing new Secrets, especially playable ones. The thing about Secrets is that they tend to be relatively weak if there is only one or two of them present in the meta. But the more possibilities you have, the more interesting things get. For example, playing against the current Secret Hunter deck actually makes you think what Secret he might have up each turn and playing around it – you don’t automatically assume that “oh, it has to be Wandering Monster, because he doesn’t play anything else”.
I really like this card, and I think that it has some potential. But one thing is sure – it doesn’t have a home right now. You don’t want to put it into Big Spell Mage, because it ruins your Dragon's Fury. You don’t want to put it in Tempo Mage, because you don’t play bigger minions. Elemental Mage is a possibility (you have some good targets to copy), but the problem is that you also run a lot of small tokens + you might not want to play spells because of Book of Specters.
The deck I would put it into is a more classic Control Mage, where you play a bunch of bigger minions as your win condition, and you can abuse this kind of effect. Because let’s be honest – who wouldn’t want to get a 3 mana copy of The Lich King, or just any other big Taunt against Aggro? You play it a turn before, then drop a Taunt – if it doesn’t get Silenced, then that’s game for the most part.
I’ll be closely looking at this card, as it has some potential, although it won’t likely see play until the rotation at least.
Card rating: 6/10
