12-2 TGT Paladin Arena run - Videos and analysis - featuring Loatheb and my MVP Frost Elemental vs. Deathwing and a crazy Taunt Warrior!

1 post in this topic

I recently managed a 12-2 Paladin arena run. This series of games had it all! Everything from facing Bloodknights, to giants, and even Deathwing!!


There was also the curious case of a Shaman with double Mana Tide totems, Hexx, a Kodo and Mukla's Champion. Whatever I did, the Shaman had an answer.


There was also a poor Rogue with terrible RNG. This was the exact opposite to the Shaman. Whatever the Rogue did, it just didn't work out for him! Lots of 'I am sorry' emotes!


My Frost Elemental was the MVP that helped me survive through a number of games. Such a valuable card when you are: a) Trying to survive and build board presence, or B) Trying to win by pushing lethal.


Loatheb was good for me too - at least as a 5/5 body. I am going to assume that he blocked out spells that could have been played on turn 5 onwards. Really good against Mages and Shamans.


There were no Equalities, no Consecrations and no Truesilver Champions. Yet the deck still managed a 12 win run. Coghammer did prove useful - and I would argue it is better than Truesilver Champion due to the divine shield and taunt effect.


The final game to get my 12th win saw me go up against a taunt Warrior. Wow what a tense game. The Warrior had it all - constant taunts, weapons, etc! If a Warrior can make it so far in an arena run, you know the deck must be CRAZY!


I recorded the drafting process and games, and uploaded to Youtube - with audio commentary:

Video 2 - Featuring: Deathwing, an unlucky Rogue, a crazy Shaman with all the answers, and finally a taunt Warrior in the final game!

      I just got Whisper of the Nathrezim, and I love it. But I feel like I need more haste than the 22% that is recommended, to get the most out of the cloak or am I totally on the wrong?

      Hi everyone,
      I've been playing hearthstone for a while now and my favorite deck is N'Zoth paladin. I can easily reach rank 10 with this deck but i am keeping track and i have a 100% lose rate against fast freeze mage, the deck with a lot of card draw and mostly spells. No matter how much board control or health i have, they always seem to be able to deal 30+ damage in 1 single turn at some point, and you know its going to happpen when they drop emperor thaurissan. I'm getting really annoyed and have tried things like the eater of secrets to stop them but so far i havent been able to beat a single one of them... I know warrior is a good matchup but is there really now possible way to beat them with N'Zoth paladin? I'm also having the same problem dealing with malygos/thaurissan combos...
      Hopefully someone can help me out!

      I recently switched from DK Tank to Paladin Tank (Similar stat prios) and I was wondering how much haste should I aim for and is Versatility more important than Haste like AskMrRobot says? 
      I raid twice a week but I mainly do M+ Content and I seem to be stuck at M+7 so if you have any advice there I will gladly take it. 
      Here's a link to my Paladin. http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/eonar/Stenbock/simple
      I am in my raid spec currently and I switch my lvl 100 talent to Last Defender when I do M+.
      Any help is appreciated. :)
