I think the Strider card is a mechanic we have been missing for a long time and one that a lot of players really have wanted. That is: a way to have a deck focused on a smaller group of characters (and a deck that is actually playable). Secrecy can work, but it still feels weird thematically when you use 2 heroes and then like 100 allies and it still counts as a secrecy deck. I like that Strider rewards you for fewer characters. It probably isn't enough on its own, but I am still very excited to see this Strider card and I'm looking forward to more cards in the future to continue this deck style.
