This is the VLPS High Legend Secret Hunter Deck September 16 that has been causing a little of a stir on ladder. It’s proving to be a decent list, a little more refined than the earlier lists and is playable at high legend.
I just knocked out 10 games as I always do with a new deck to get an early feel for it and went 8-2, so I’m happy to carry on and try and push higher with the list.
I don’t like Barnes RNG in decks with too many minions you don’t want. It’s about right in this deck, and if you land a 1/1 Cloacked Huntress you will almost certainly have secrets in your hand to play.
Give it a go and see how you get on. I feel like the META is starting to hit a place where the strongest few decks, Aggro Shaman, Malygos Druid, Dragon Warrior, etc are pushing all the fun decks down. So it’s nice to play something a little different that actually works.
The Secret Hunter decks continue to be refined by streamers and pro players. This is the Thijs Cloaked Huntress Secret Hunter Deck he was playing on ladder and having some decent success with.
Secret Hunter decks are fun, playing a load of secrets for 0 mana and seeing your opponent trying to play around when they think they are is fun. This was just before the release of Cat Trick, so expect to see lists with this new card in coming soon.
Mulligan Guide for Secret Hunter Decks
As tempting as it is, never keep secrets or the Cloaked Huntress in your opening hand. Curve out as strong as possible with Fiery Bat, Secret Keeper, Kindly Grandmother, and wait for Cloaked Huntress and the secrets to be drawn.
If you had any doubts about secret Hunter being a legit deck this should change your mind. This is the Superjj Top 50 Legend Barnes Secret Hunter Deck. I watched him take this deck into the top 50 at legend and he was tearing up all classes.
The only minions you really don’t want from Barnes are Secretkeeper, Fiery Bat, and Houndmaster. So you can wait until you’ve played most of these, or roll your luck as there are 4 minions that aren’t too bad. It’s clever deck building because it puts the % chance of a good minion on your side.
There is a lot of decision making but it’s a strong deck in the current META and can take you to high legend for sure.
General Mulligan Strategy for Barnes Secret Hunter
Don’t hold on to any secret, you’ll jam your hand up. Mulligan for Secretkeeper, Fiery Bat, Kindly Grandmother, and King’s Elekk.
This is the Trump Karazhan Midrange Hunter Deck w Cloaked Huntress for all you Trump fans out there. It’s a more refined version than some of the early versions of the deck that were made within minutes of the card being released.
This deck list has 5 secrets, and only one of each to avoid that clunky hand when you have duplicates you can’t drop. It has all the other strong midrange Hunter cards, and curves out nicely into that Call of the Wild for the win.
The best list for Cloaked Huntress is still to be finalized in my opinion. I think the deck will go similar to the Secret Paladin decks of old, extremely powerful at first when it’s new and confusing for opponents. Then slowly dropping in effectiveness over time as people figure out what to expect, and tech against it if it’s super popular.
With Cloaked Huntress being one of the strongest cards to come from week one of One Night in Karazhan it’s no surprise to see lots of Pro’s play-testing it.
This is Thijs Secret Hunter w Cloaked Huntress Deck he was playing on stream at high legend and it’s a great deck. Low curve with lots of aggro and of course Lock and Load to make use of the spell synergy.
This is the Trump Yogg and Load w Cloaked Huntress Deck. Cloaked Huntress is going to be a feature in Yogg and Load decks due to the added synergy with 0 cost spells to activate more cards from Lock and Load.
It’s a fun and strong deck, give it a go and see how you get on.
This is the Tyler Rank 1 Legend Secret Hunter Deck w Cloaked Huntress list. He just secured rank 1 legend on NA by winning with this deck. The sample size of games is small to say the least, but this is going to be a fun deck.
If you want a quick way to put a secret deck together that will use the synergy of free 0 mana secrets from the new card Cloaked Huntress, then this is a list to start with and make your own tweaks as you go.
This new card is bonkers. Think about a Eaglehorn Bow with 5 + added charges – you have 15 + damage weapon. Insane!
Have fun! Any other lists you want to share drop me a message and I will put them up.
