Secret Hunter is a midrange Hunter deck type that utilizes Secrets as its main game plan.

Secret Hunter first took off in popularity after the release of One Night in Karazhan and the cards Cloaked Huntress and Cat Trick. Cloaked Huntress created huge swing turns by dumping multiple Secrets in one turn, creating an extremely disruptive environment for the opponent which made removing or summoning minions especially difficult. The deck creates a high-tempo start with Secretkeeper or Dire Mole followed by a Crackling Razormaw, using Secrets to protect them, Lesser Emerald Spellstone to create a big board after being fully upgraded, and utilizes Deathstalker Rexxar for long games.

Secret Hunter transitioned to Spell Hunter after Kobolds and Catacombs, which excludes Cloaked Huntress from the deck. The Boomsday Project breathed new life into a traditional Secret Hunter deck with Subject 9, which gave the deck huge card draw in place of To My Side! and Rhok'delar.
