Notes[]

  • Kezan Mystic's Battlecry will attempt to steal an enemy Secret. If the randomly selected Secret is the same as one the controlling player already has active, the Mystic will attempt to pick another.[1] If there are no Secrets the player does not already have active, the Mystic will instead destroy a random Secret.[1]
  • Since Battlecries always activate before any summon-related Secrets, Kezan Mystic can steal a Secret such as Snipe and Mirror Entity without triggering it.[2]
  • Kezan Mystic does not allow the player to exceed the 5 Secret limit. If her Battlecry would cause the player to have more than 5 Secrets, the Secret will be destroyed instead of stolen.[3]
  • The player who the Secret was stolen from can mouse over it to see which Secret it is, even after it has been stolen.
  • The play order of the stolen Secret is maintained - if it was the oldest Secret it remains the first to activate and vice versa. However, Kezan Mystic visually places it as though it was the newest Secret. This is especially confusing as it is the only time Secrets are displayed out of the order that they activate.[4]

Strategy[]

This card is a useful counter to decks that use a lot of secrets. As well as providing a valuable secret in addition to the minion itself, the effect can also disrupt the opponent's strategy, and work around specific defences they had in place. For example, a hunter relying on a Freezing Trap to prevent an enraged Grommash Hellscream from dealing lethal damage to him can be undone by using Kezan Mystic to first steal the Trap. Alternatively, a player can use the Mystic to steal an Ice Block, allowing them to deal fatal damage to an otherwise soon to be immune mage. The Kezan Mystic means that players cannot always rely on their secrets to take effect, and unlike Flare is available to all classes.

Kezan Mystic can be played immediately after killing a Mad Scientist to ensure the opponent has a secret to steal. While this does not cause the opponent to have wasted mana playing the secret itself, much of the value of the Mad Scientist is wasted, and the player can almost guarantee the Kezan Mystic will earn its summoning cost. There is of course a chance that the Mad Scientist will fail to draw a secret, due to the opponent having no secrets left in their deck, although they may still have secrets remaining in their hand.

The Mystic is a decent body in itself, and is a reasonably mana-efficient play whichever secret is stolen. Advanced players can anticipate which secret the opponent currently has active, and wait until a particularly desirable one is available to steal; or even carefully trigger one of multiple secrets, in order to ensure that the correct one is stolen. The player can also take into account any secrets they already have active, as the Mystic will not steal duplicate secrets; this can similarly allow them to pick specific secrets when the opponent has more than one active.

Lore[]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
The Isle of Kezan is the tropical island homeland of the goblins located in the South Seas.
A mystic is a loosely-defined class among many races. The majority of mystics use shamanistic magics, although others use nature, arcane or shadow spells. However, most use magic from only one such school.

The Kezan Mystic, according to her quotes, draws her magic from the Light.
