well, the opponent is going to play around this the same way he plays around Mirror Entity; if possible, drop the most worthless minion out there. the positive side is that you get 2x of the card with the battlecry (so if opponent plays Novice Engineer and Swashburglar, that's a huge improvement to Mirror Entity result) the negative side is that you don't actually get the minion into play right away, so sometimes the opponent actually might be alright with giving you huge cost minions into hand knowing you have little or no time to play them out, since unlike Entity you didn't get nothing into play, and you gotta deal with the new card.
it does create an interesting scenario where opponent is split between playing the huge minion or the cheap ones. fun card. don't think it ends up in a deck (why would you steal your opponent's creature cards in Mage, when you have better things to do) but certainly will spark some moments.
Always looking for nice people to share games with! if you want to add me on Hearthstone: #2243 (EU) or if you play Faeria nick is breach, add me as a friend or recruiter if you need one for free stuff!

Sure it looks good at first, but everyone with a bit of experience will try to play around Mirror Entity unless they're facing Freeze Mage, therefore you'll pretty end up with 2 small minions, but that's still 2 cards.
Seems like pretty good tech against other classes DK Hero cards, assuming they are classed as minion before being played like Lord Jaraxxus? I mean, they don't look like minions, or spells? Are they just unique? I guess it wouldn't work on Mirror Entity, so it probably doesn't work like that which is a shame.
If it did work depending how popular certain ones become. Being a Burn Mage and stealing Valeera the Hollow is game winning.

Death Knights aren't minions. THey have no stats. Can't pull them with Dirty Rat for example.
Well, sometimes people play around Mirror Entity by playing Battlecry minions, so this at least allows you to use those battlecries. It also provides some added value for Secret mages, which they definitely wanted with Duplicate gone. That said, this card is certainly worse than Duplicate because it's far less controllable.
I figured they wouldn't print Glacial Mysteries without realizing Mages don't have secrets that generate value in the late game. A staple in those decks for sure. Just like with Mirror Entity, you need to play this later in the game to make it harder to give you dud cards. A fine secret.
