Good news everyone! Cloaked Huntress just made a new best friend on turn 7 or earlier, if the former is kept alive. Whether hunters will want to play the value game, however, as a class that historically relied on aggro and midrange playstyles, is another story. We'll have to see if hunters receive more Secret support to really understand Putricide's power, but it doesn't currently fit into any competitive hunter deck (if they do exist at all). Still, the statline is appropriate. Let us note that it is the only non-Beast hunter legendary so far, which is interesting.

Part of me kind of wants to call this card bad, since it takes a 2 card combo + secrets to make it insane, and hunter secrets just arn't really that great on their own, HOWEVER, cards that generate free value, like Lyra, historically have been insanely strong, even if what they generate isn't "good".  So I am going to go against my first impressions and call this card good.  The effect is simply too strong for it not to find a home somewhere.

Secret hunters are among my favourite fun decks and should we get a decent secret and/or another neutral/hunter secret synergy card it can move away from the fun category. Secret hunters play Barnes  and this is definitely a good 1\1 to get.

I love the upcoming the challenge of playing Cloaked Huntress on 3 and evaluating chances of her survival to make a right decision: play zero cost secrets now or play zero cost secrets next turn and get free random ones.

I don't see the card being a thing for long. It's too slow, and caps at 2 free secrets, unless it lives more turns. I don't really want to see Secret Hunter's comeback anyway.

Gut says it's just too slow, with those stats you can't possibly hope this will survive more than a turn so you need to wait a long time till you can play it and secrets in the same turn.

Secret Hunter is making a comeback.


Wait..Nevermind, that happened when Cloaked Huntress came out.

I remember people trying to play decks with every secret and CH, and then realising some of them just aren't worth playing.

      Players can earn up to three free packs for logging in to Hearthstone during the Hearthstone World Championships.
      The folks over at Hearthpwn.com have learned from data mining of patch 10.0 that the Hearthstone World Championships will offer players three free packs as daily login rewards. The first day of the championships will give players a Journey to Un'Goro pack, the second day a Knights of the Frozen Throne pack, and the third a Kobolds & Catacombs pack. The Hearthstone home screen will also change to sparkling white theme honor the World Championships.

      Along with this week's awesome Tavern Brawl featuring World Championship winning decks, this marks the first time that Blizzard has brought Hearthstone eSports all the way to the Hearthstone client. Given the recent start of the Overwatch League and the choose your champion feature for the World Championships, it seems that Blizzard is supporting competitive gaming now more than ever.

      This week's Brawl honours the 3 previous Hearthstone World Champions!
      The 2018 World Championship is about to begin and Team 5 is celebrating by giving us a very special Tavern Brawl. In this Brawl, you get to play with decks that the previous world champions from 2014, 2015 and 2016 used on their way to the top. Your player name will even change to the respective Champion: Firebat, Ostkaka or Pavel!
      Here are the deck archetypes you can get:
      Firebat's Undertaker Hunter Firebat's Ramp Druid Firebat's Miracle Rogue Firebat's Zoolock Ostkaka's Patron Warrior Ostkaka's Oil Rogue Ostkaka's Freeze Mage Pavel's Tempo Mage Pavel's Malygos Miracle Rogue Pavel's Midrange Shaman Pavel's C'Thun Warrior Pavel's Malygos OTK Druid You might think: "why would I want to play a deck from 2014 with cards that have been nerfed"? Well, all cards are on their pre-nerfed versions, therefore they are basically in the same state as when originally used by each World Champion. So, say hello to pre-nerf Undertaker, Leper Gnome, Hex and many others.
      Amnesiac can never catch a break.
      A slight inconsistency is that cards that generate other cards or tokens, like Piloted Shredder or Babbling Book, can generate cards/tokens from later expansions. For example, my opponent's dead Shredder created Friendly Bartender, a card that neither Champion had encountered at their time.
      Enjoy the Brawl and tune in to the World Championship this weekend!

      Aleco walks through a series of simple early-game decisions while playing an Unstable Evolution deck.
      "Simple early game decisions" and "multi-turn decisions" are the two most common requests I've been receiving since the start of this series, so I decided to do an episode that tackles both! In today's episode I navigate a series of relatively simple early-game decisions against an aggressive Hunter start with my Unstable Evolution Shaman deck.
      If you have any requests for future episodes of "What's the Move?", please feel free to reach out to me here on Icy Veins or via Twitter @Aleco_P. I prefer to always fulfill requests for new episodes if possible, and always love hearing feedback from the community which can help me improve on this series in the future. Don't be shy!
