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.
