Explosive Trap is a common hunter secret card, from the Classic set.

Like all damaging spells, Explosive Trap is improved by Spell Damage.


This card is a great board clearer. Placed when the enemy has multiple low health minions, it can be devastating to them, giving you an advantage if you're able to have minions on the board prior to this activating. An example defence against small minion aggro decks such as murloc decks.

Note that this secret only triggers from 'attacks' - physical combat from a minion or hero. Direct damage from sources such as Battlecries, spells and hero powers will not trigger this secret.
