So I have enough dust saved up to craft a relatively cheap deck, like pirate warrior or quest rogue...I think I'll just save some more

Secret mage looks interesting, highly interactive, but I doubt I have the requisite HS knowledge to pilot it effectively. It's definitely a deck that rewards you for anticipating your opponents plays.

I see enough mages running a quest deck that I think it's worth carrying an Eater of Secrets to eat their ice block. This makes them sad . But yes, it's often a wasted card.

yea, I was considering adding flare to my midrange hunter deck, but the matchup is favorable enough without it. I have a bit more trouble with the tempo version of mage.

Eater of Secrets breaking their spirit for a kill shot is worth the other games when it's mostly worthless. Very satisfying.

So midrange hunter took me from rank 19 to to about 6, when I started sputtering and going backwards, slid back to about rank 9. Tried out some more teched out anti-murloc and pirate lists, but still not good enough. Switched to taunt warrior, still couldn't break through to rank 5, though part of that is due to lots of misplays on my part (I'm ashamed to admit how many games I lost because I forgot to armor up when I had mana floating).

Switched to secret mage last night, lost my first couple of matches while getting used to the deck, and then went from rank 8 to rank 5 undefeated. First time I made it this high, thanks for the golden epic
