Last updated on Aug 27, 2017 at 21:54 by L0rinda 5 comments

Table of Contents

This deck was built with the Knights of the Frozen Throne meta in mind, as it contains double Spellbreaker as a way of dealing with Taunt minions. Sentavian successfully built, and piloted, this deck to Rank #13 Legend. The deck has many layers of difficulty to it and can be expected to be perform well for beginners and experienced players alike.

3. Comments on the Variation

This variant of the deck uses six secrets as opposed to the four in Kranich's list. Although this might seem like this would make the deck more consistent, there are also Secretkeepers in the deck, which takes away some of that consistency.

The version of the deck uses Deathstalker Rexxar, Venomstrike Trap, and Professor Putricide from the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion. All three of which add more value to the deck, which means that it has a better matchup against Control than it did previously.

Four Crabs and two Spellbreakers are included to the deck as tech choices. Thanks to the presence of Houndmaster, the Crabs barely interfere with the natural running of the deck at all. The Spellbreakers are very good at dealing with Taunt minions, and combine well with the Bittertide Hydra to force through large amounts of damage. It is worth noting that just occasionally it can be worth using the Silence on your own Hydra to prevent yourself from dying.

Deathstalker Rexxar is an interesting addition to the deck. In this particular build, it is usually used as an emergency button. If you are close to winning, it can often be incorrect to play it, as you will lose your ability to do 2 damage each turn with your Steady Shot. However, against Control decks when you are running out of steam, or when you are looking for a life saving Lifesteal card, or huge Taunt minion, Rexxar can change the course of a game. If you do manage to stabilise with Rexxar in play, you can often out-value your opponent.

4. Pros and Cons

This version of the deck has more sustain, and is less explosive than the Kranich build. This means that this version has better matchups against Control, but sometimes gives Midrange the chance to stabilise by not killing them quickly enough. Overall, the differences are slight, and the decks are doing the same thing using a healthy number of different cards.

5. Quick Mulligan

You should generally mulligan for the following cards:

The mulligan is very conditional on the other cards in your hand, if you have Secretkeeper already, then you will favour other secrets. If you have Crackling Razormaw, then you will want Beasts, and so on. You should also be aware of your crabs. If your opponent is going to play Murlocs, you can go all-in looking for Hungry Crab. Similarly Golakka Crawler is heavily prioritised against Pirates.

Cat Trick is very good against any Druid decks that rely on ramp.

For full details on the mulligan, and on the style of play that Secret Hunter uses. You should consult the guide to Kranich's deck.
