Notes[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This card is incredibly powerful and fits into a wide variety of decks. It is a high value minion that also serves as a fully functional early-game board presence. The only requirement is that your deck contains at least one or two Secrets. But if that is the case, you will probably benefit from playing this card.

For mid-range decks, Arcanologist can give you Mirror Entity and Mana Bind, allowing it to scale into late-game very well. For combo decks, Arcanologist is even better as it can fetch one of your combo pieces if you only include one kind of Secret in your deck. Ice Block mages can find their life insurance more easily, and mages using the Open the Waygate Quest can use this to draw Mana Bind. Lastly, this card is an auto-include in any deck with heavy secret synergy.

Only in Wild does this card struggle to find its place, as it has to compete with Mad Scientist, which is better in most cases since it also puts the secret into play, generating not only card advantage, but even more tempo as well. In these cases, Arcanologist may be preferable in decks with several secrets of varying types to allow greater control of them, as uncontrollably playing a secret like Duplicate with only small tokens on the board may be undesirable.

Quotes[edit | edit source]
