I play a deck that triggers the secrets very quickly...a dinomancer warlock. So I find that they cannot build a Christmas tree of secrets against me. Besides, stealing counterspell is as good as taking two secrets away...and iceblock has obvious benefits. Besides a 4/3 body is better when when it has to be used against non-secret classes. This is just what I have found.
Absolutely agree. At this point it's either Reno Lock or Secret mage. At levels 6-4 I have played 28% secret mages. That is a crazy amount. Accordingly, I have adopted two lovely Kezan Mystics into my deck and they feast on those counterspells and iceblocks. Mage tears taste like candy to me.
