Secret that gives Ironfur Grizzly - check

Secret that gives Jungle Panther - check

Secret that gives Emperor Cobra - check

I know that you are running out of 3 mana neutral beasts but, dear Blizzard, please, do not let me see a secret that gives  Silverback Patriarch

Also, I am disappointed that this secret is just a variant of Snake Trap. They could at least make "when one of your minions is damaged" kind of effect.

Yeah, also Venomstrike trap seems really underpowered as Snake trap at least spawned 3 tokens making it really hard to clear them all and giving almost guaranteed Houndmaster/Kill command value. We'll see, but im so far really disappointed with this card and with all the new Hunter cards in general.

I think it has some potential disrupting enemy turns in a way Snake Trap can't but it needs some testing. In any case any new secret makes all other secrets stronger especially with the new random secret generation legendary.

I am happy with the currently revealed hunter cards. The deathknight is too control to work but others seam to fit in midrange decks and all of them are not bad in arena.

I think blizzard is trying to make aggro hunter not a thing anymore...this seems like it could be in a control hunter deck as an answer to a large minion that you didn't have the answer to right away

I think it's more that they are trying to make classes not forced into one type of meta - Warlock was an incredible aggro class, but it always had a slower variant that worked. I guess they're trying to make certain that Hunter has some variance in the class too.

Which would be nice.

Of course, I hate pigeonholing certain classes into certain metas or deck types, it's really bad for the actual design of the game IMO.

I wish all the classes where like Shaman, you don't know what you are facing usually for the first few turns.

Yeah, where they have those few solid cards that are in each deck and then you get a curveball played on the 6th turn that leaves you thinking "oh, right."
