Strategy[edit | edit source]

Desperate Measures is pretty much only good for Secret Paladin decks. Because of how random it is, and how many paladin secrets are weak, the real value of the card is that you get 2 Paladin secrets in one card. This can allow you to curve into Sunreaver Spy or Mysterious Blade on curve. However, it doesn't synergize with Secretkeeper since you aren't actually playing the Secrets.

Since this is a cheap spell that creates a cheap spell, Desperate Measures can work with spell triggers like Wild Pyromancer or Gadgetzan Auctioneer.
