How to get
Flare is a card with devastating effects in the right situation. Against the Mage, Hunter and Paladin, Flare's unique ability to destroy Secrets can cripple their strategy. It can also be use pre-emptively if going for the kill with a large minion to prevent the use of defensive secrets such as Ice Block, Eye for an Eye and Misdirection. However, note that a Mage's Counterspell that was already placed will trigger on the Flare, and can protect their other placed Secrets.
Flare also has the ability to remove Stealth. This mechanic is most used against Rogues, countering their defence of key minions such as Gadgetzan Auctioneer. Numerous neutral minions with Stealth see frequent play as well, such as Shade of Naxxramas.
Flare is a hunter ability from World of Warcraft which allows the hunter to fire a small flare into a targeted area. The flare remains for 20 seconds, during which time it will expose any hidden, stealthed or invisible targets within 10 yards. Although it has no destructive abilities, like in Hearthstone Flare is the bane of anyone relying on secrets and concealment, and is one of the only ways to counteract these effects.
