First things first- thanks for all of the support. Our Hearthstone and Hearthstone Battlegrounds articles are single handedly responsible for about two percent of the site’s views, which is a lot, considering how long it’s been since they went up. I’ve also had an article put up on Hearthstone Top Decks, so thanks to anybody who checked it out.

Wild Secret Mage Guide

Introduction

Secret Mage has been a strong, much hated part of the Wild meta for a good few expansions now.

What of the Tribeless?

 By Spike, Regular Contributor

 One of the most interesting groups of minions in Hearthstone Battlegrounds is what I like to call “Neutral comp enablers”. These are Tribeless minions (henceforth reffered to as Neutral) like Soul Juggler, Baron Rivendare, or Lightfang Enforcer that are either the payoff to build the comp or provide a very strong boost to it.
