if „cast“ means to activate the effect of the secret from the deck and not just „put“ the secret in play i think its pretty strong if you play only 2 copies of rat trap in your deck, turn 4 sunmon a 2/3 and 6/6 and deal 2 face damage is absurdly strong.
So if you get a hero power off, it draws a card(worth 1.5 mana) and plays the secret(worth 2 mana). And it combines those effects, so the effect's in total worth about 4 mana. Very strong if you can reliably get your hero power off with it.
Hm, I think Mad Scientist is still better. This can get interrupted, and being forced to use your hero power is a big deal.
A solid card, but maybe not quite good enough.
Well yeah, but Mad Scientist isn't standard so... shrug
Decent card is decent. The fact that a secret only costs 2 means that you're drawing and playing it for that same 2 mana - so slight upside. Essentially, it's a 4 mana 2/3 with "draw and play a secret", that has more upside and value if it can stick around for more than a turn. Slightly above average cards tend not to see play in constructed - but they sometimes do.
I'm fairly positive the meaning of "cast" instead of "put" is that the card is tutoring a secret from your deck and then casting the secret into play. so on 4 you play this, hero power and end the turn with a secret in play. However, it is a secret that you have cast. So when you zul'jin that secret gets cast again b/c it was a spell you previously played. This card is thinning your deck and putting obstructions into play to hinder your opponent. It is cheap and reliable. I think this card is a serious contender based on the thinning/tutoring it enables. If it survives a turn then you get to thin 2 secrets from your deck that act as if you played them yourself. That seems incredibly powerful since it is also just a solid curve, and beast, play in hunter... seems very very solid to me
It's pretty good. It's just that I think Masked Contender is better, and Secret lists are very tight for space. I wish the powerful 1 drop that got revealed for Hunter was a beast then the decks could run Master's Call. But it'll serve a purpose once Subject 9 and Masked Contender rotates out, probably might be even better by then.
