You mention Aldor Peacekeeper in the guide but he's not listed in the deck? Is that a mistake?

Fun deck for the long game.

Aldor not in deck but mentioned in description.

Also wondering about the Aldor peacekeeper. Also, is it viable to cut one piloted golem for Cairne?

I'm having some tough time with those hunter aggro decks using this control deck. I'm usually going for muster for battle and shielded mini bot in the beginning but that doesn't help. Trying to pick of minions and use concecration or true silver by turn 4. It's usually over by round 9 or 10.

And of course those Priest are a pain... Hate that mind control card...

Any advice would be much appreciated.

I'm having a fun time against the other classes, thanks a million for sharing!

Those are both quite bad matchups for this deck, it happens. Against Hunter you just need to mulligan for the cards you describe and aim to control the board as much as you can, but after a point, you will just lose if you keep playing from behind. You need to try and find a turn where you can push damage back to the Hunter and start to race them if you are able to get on the board.

Against Priest, the game is very much about Mind Control as you have identified. You need to bait them into using Mind Control on a card other than Tirion, or slam Tirion immediately on turn 8 so it can't be Mind Controlled. If they haven't used it yet, you need to hold onto Tirion, as getting that card Mind Controlled is simply death in that matchup.

I have a lot of trouble against face hunter. I just get rushed down and even if i look for those early game cards like shielded minibot and muster for battle i still get rushed by turn 5 or 6. Any help with this matchup?

 

Love the deck with the other matchups keep up the good work.

This is quite a slow grindy deck, so fast decks like Face Hunter will punish you, that's pretty much their role in the metagame. Every deck will have its bad matchups.

I found the acolytes very hard to use, especially as there is only one peacekeaper in this deck. Any suggestions on how to use them correctly / arguments that explain the inclusion instead of e.g. Azure drake or a more stable 3 Mana minion?

Sorry to push this back on the first page. Any chance you could comment on the Acolytes in this deck, Sottle? (Or someone else experienced with this deck) Thanks!

Synergy with Aldor is the most common reason for their inclusion, you need a nice curve with The Coin of Acolyte into Aldor on the guy they play to contest your Acolyte. It's also a stopgap drop early against aggro decks with small minions like Creeper. It is a flexible card though, you can change one for a Mind Control Tech or Coghammer, or both if you like.

I hate playing cancer but i have to admit that Secret Paladin is still the best Paladin deck so far.

What about Keeper of Uldaman? Seems to good not to play.

It's not quite as mandatory in a double Equality deck, but you can play it if you like.

      The Americas Spring Playoffs and Championship were played over the weekend of May 28-29.
      The new Americas Champion is Muzzy.  Muzzy has long been touted as one of the best ladder players in the world, but has previously not converted this into any big wins. He will go to the World Spring Championship in Shanghai in July, alongside DiegoDias, Ant, and Kuonet who rounded out the top four.
      The tournament was a grueling one, with many players bringing Control Decks, and some of the rounds of Swiss lasting over 3 hours. The archetypes brought by the top four are listed below:
        Muzzy: Control Paladin, Giant Miracle Rogue, Jade Shaman, Quest Warrior
        DiegoDias: Jade Druid, Murloc Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
        Ant: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
        Kuonet: Discover Mage, Control Paladin, Evolve Shaman, Quest Warrior
      As you can see, the meta seems to be healthy, with many viable options.
      Next week is the APAC Spring Playoffs, at which point all sixteen qualifiers for the World Spring Championship will have been decided.

      The Americas Region HCT Spring Playoffs will take place over the weekend of 27-28 May 2017.
      The HCT Spring playoffs for the Europe region was completed last weekend, with Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, and Rdu qualifying for the Global Championship next month.
      This weekend is the turn of the Americas region, and the reaction last week is that many players have submitted very greedy control decks in their lists. The players who have submitted the greediest lists will be well placed in the control mirror matches, but those same players will need to dodge the handful of Aggro lineups that are out there.
      To find out if your favourite player has qualified, you can check the standings here. The top 64 and ties made it to the main event, along with 8 Tavern Heroes. The event can be seen on the official Twitch channel from 8am PDT on Day One and 9am PDT on Day Two.

      A new mini-series of funny shorts has started, and we already have 2 episodes out! Mulligans sees an ordinary guy complete the quests that everyday life throws his way with the help of some unusual friends: Uther, Jaina, and Gul’dan. See them battle printer problems and who gets to ride shotgun in the first two episodes:

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.
