Such easy sport.

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.

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.

In the Year of the Dragon, Secret Hunter uses a more midrange-style play, incorporating a good amount of spells to power up Zul'jin as its big finisher, who will replay all activated Secrets.
