House of Secrets

It's Friday, and we're closing out Secret Six Week with a look at House of Secrets. House of Secrets is a nice little card with some combos and some uses both in and out of a Secret Six deck. Most of the Secret Six characters are a little undersized, so you'll probably wind up taking a lot of breakthrough before you can set up for your crucial turn to win with Secret Six Victorious. House of Secrets lets you turn unwanted character cards or unused resource points into valuable endurance. Two points of endurance is nothing to write home about, but four points can start to add up, especially if you're gaining every turn.
With something like Mr. Mxyzptlk's ability to bounce back to your hand every turn, it turns into four endurance with no drawback. It also wouldn't be bad with Masters of Evil, which excels at generating resource points to use for costs.

House of Secrets really shines in Sealed, when your hand will be full of extra characters, and the extra endurance can make the difference between winning and losing. You also underdrop a lot more in the Limited formats, so the extra resource point won't be wasted if used on House of Secrets. Of course, it's better spent on something like Thangarian Invasion, but you don't always have that. It's a location to run in a Checkmate build, too. It also combos well with a card I like to pick up late in a draft, Return of Donna Troy. This plot twist allows you to bring a character card back from your KO'd pile to your hand, making it great for feeding House of Secrets, or for getting back powerups, etc.

Rating: 3/5
