General Comments

Though Secrets are widely regarded as relatively weak cards, Subject 9 is a powerful card because it offers players the ability to draw many cards at once. Subject 9 currently sees play in Hunter decks, where the card is capable of drawing up to 5 secrets at once to power up cards like Secretkeeper and Lesser Emerald Spellstone. It also has the added benefit to Hunters of being a Beast.


Constructed Play

Subject 9 has been able to find some success in constructed in Secret Hunter decks. It draws many Secrets at once to power up Lesser Emerald Spellstone and Secretkeeper, and has the added benefit of being a Beast for cards like Kill Command and Houndmaster. Subject 9 does not see play in classes outside of Hunter due to the relatively low number of playable Secrets in Mage, Paladin, and Rogue.



A 5 Mana 4/4 is below rate in the Arena, which means thats Subject 9 has to consistently draw a Secret from your deck for it to be a worthwhile inclusion. If your deck already includes one powerful Secret, then Subject 9 might be worth considering. However, we would not recommend picking Subject 9 without any Secrets in your deck.
