Highlander hunter continues to torment players in ranks since most of the cards which is from past expansions, they had a new support with Dragonqueen Alexstrasza with generate cards potentially give you answers to the board.

Key Cards

Hyena Alpha – As long as it activates its Battlecry, it generates 7/7 worth of stats for a much lower cost. Playing Secrets that are more difficult to activate like Rat Trap will help guarantee the Battlecry going off on curve

Snake Trap – good for hyena alpha and minion reload on board

Rat Trap – provides excellent stats for its cost, but has a hefty trigger condition. Rat Trap will often not trigger until multiple turns after its been played, or may never trigger at all. This makes Rat Trap an ideal “filler secret” that can be thrown down at any time, benefiting Secretkeeper or Lesser Emerald Spellstone, and its difficult activation condition makes it useful for triggering Secret-dependent cards like Hyena Alpha, Sunreaver Spy, and Masked Contender. Due to Rat Trap’s unique trigger requirement, your opponent may quickly suspect which trap it is. This can be an upside by effectively restricting your opponent to two cards per turn, which can keep aggro decks in check.

Secretkeeper – Early tempo buff as you play secret or your opponent’s 

Zephrys the Great – an incredibly powerful card that can save you from a bad situation, kill priority targets, generate value for later turns, or create lethal. Generally, you should save Zephrys for when you have no other good plays. Zephrys will always be an efficient play, so it’s a good idea to wait until he’s your only efficient play.

Dinotamer Brann – a very powerful on turn 7, summoning an 8/8 Beast with Charge for 2 Mana less. This is so powerful that, in fact, it makes the “no duplicates” restriction easy to overlook.

Dragonqueen Alexstrasza – a solid choice for any Highlander deck in standard. The Zero Cost dragons help generate a bit of a board immediately.
