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.

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
