    A fun legendary to put into your secret Pally, for sure. After I got to know that they can be silenced though, I got quite disappointed.

    Also, the only secret you can reliably expect to stay around for more than one turn is the new one that gives you a taunty horse.

    Overall, interesting, but somewhat weak and vunerable.

    This needs a lot of support, and as a one-of, it probably won't see much play. Unless there's a lot of secret support, then this is just a win-mire card. Either way, meh.

    At least the effect is really unusual and cool

    Mysterious Challenger, is that you?

    Joking aside, I definitely don't think this will be as strong as our mysterious friend, but it might be a fun to try out secret paladin for a bit again.  I'm most curious to see what other potential interactions there will be, such as if you can silence the soldiers to prevent it from returning as a secret, or if you can play a secret while the same secret is currently a soldier (I would assume yes, but you know what they say about assuming).

    I dont think this is a very good card. Maybe it'll work in some slow decks but playing secrets just to hide them seems counter intuitive.

    So if your opponent steal one of the soldiers and it dies on the opponents turn, do they get the secret?

    The effect is really awesome.  5 mana for a 4/4 body that could fill your board with 3/3s that even if your opponent does something like Flamestrike, now they have secrets to deal with again.  I see this being fun, and a good addition to paladin, but not necessary better than Dude Paladin builds.

    Avenge + Cannonmaster Smythe = I predict tempo/secret paladin will be at least tier 2.

    I'll be optimistic and say this seems alright, especially with improved secrets pool
