Secrets after Battle Cries

Posts: 8
I feel it is strange that a creature with a battle cry supersedes a secret such as snipe. If the shot will kill the minion outright, why do they still gain value for that card?

Because like you said, battle cry supercedes it.

In another example I posted a day or two ago, Twilight Drake's battle cry is (Gain 1 health for each card in your hand). It is a 4/1 at first. If the player has 4+ cards in their hand it'll become a 4/5+ meaning that it wouldn't die to snipe.

Battlecries trigger BEFORE you play the minion. Snipe triggers WHEN the minion is played.

Hence, minions with battlecries can not target themselves, as the minion is not yet in play.
