Normally you can't play 2 of the same secrets at once.

However, let's say you have freezing trap already in play, and your deck still has 1 more freezing trap and no other secrets. If your mad scientists dies and triggers the deathrattle, would it cast the additional secret or just do nothing?


"If the only Secret left in your deck is a copy of one you already have active, Mad Scientist will draw nothing at all."

  • Huh. I thought it drew the secret out of the deck and overwrote the current secret, thus wasting the one in the deck. – John Gordon Jun 22 '16 at 17:03
