What about it? I don't think it's good enough, it's a decent trading tool, but this deck already has enough Divine Shield between the minions that already have it, and the Seal of Champions that I deem it unnecessary, it's also a terrible topdeck late when you're trying to squeak in the last few points of damage.

Very nice deck! I was struggling to make Patron Warrior work, so I tried this deck and now I'm flying through the ranks with ease. We'll see how it holds out at the higher levels. Thanks for sharing!

It seems ok yeah, Arcane Golem is such a good late topdeck, or card to hit of a Divine Favor though.

Sword of Justice is too slow, Avenging Wrath is too unreliable and clunky. Blood Knight is ok, but only if you're facing against a lot of other Paladins, don't put it in just to remove your own Divine Shields, you want your own Divine Shields.

Can you help us understand why the Worgen Inflitrator is there? Seems a second Argent Squire or second Arcane Golem would add more value.

Aggro decks are hard to master so being rank 13 is OK. Mistakes are mostly made by trading or not trading. This wisdom will come with time (big amount of time). Maybe you could also watch streams/videos of other (pro)players playing aggro paladin and think about each turn what would you do and if they play differently, try to think why. However, it is quite time consuming, but again, so is playing the deck over and over again.

Is this a better version than aggro secret paladin?

They revolve around completely different things.

Secretless pally has many proactive plays and can put a lot of pressure on your opponent. It is in my opinion weaker but easier deck (and also cheaper). Aggro pally is generic aggro without a main synergy (but still has synergy such as Muster+Juggler).

Secret pally is harder and more expensive, but can be more rewarding as the meta hasn't fully adapted to it. Almost every pally is aggro and everyone expects it and plays accordingly. It relies on secrets and Mysterious Challenger. If you don't draw into one, you will have hard time winning. I still think secret pally is superior to generic aggro pally.

wouldn't a Piloted Shredder be a better fit for the aggro play style, than a Defender of Argus?

Defender of Argus immediatly gives you 2 extra attack. Plus, you can protect a high attack, low life minion with it and also protect some minios against AOE damage

Not consistent enough damage for me, too slow for the deck, you wouldn't play a 6-drop in the deck, so why Murloc Knight?

Hi, first of all I'd like to say I really like this deck! I doubt there's anything else that would've allowed me, as a new player, to reach rank 5 for cheap!

 

I've been experimenting with putting an echoing ooze in this deck over 1 consecration, since that card is really slow and mainly only helps you against other aggro decks. Echoing ooze seems really good with all the buffs in this deck. If you play it with might, champions, or kings on turns 3, 5, or 6 respectively it represents great value for curve, and can really help you get back to dealing damage if you got stalled in the opening turns. Even if you play it by itself it's essentially a 2/4 for 2 mana, which is not bad at all. Sure it's a bad topdeck but it still seems better overall than a second consecration.

 

I'm also pretty conflicted over divine favor. I recognize that it can be amazing in the right situation, but it's pretty much useless against aggro, or really anyone who just got a decent curve in their opening hand. When the opponent has been playing cards on pace with you it's just a dead card, made even worse by the fact that those are the situations where you need as many useful cards as possible to establish tempo. Even if you are able to draw 2 or more cards with it it's still really slow, since skipping your turn 3 or 4 is something you almost never want to do with this deck. After that your opponent has probably had the chance to play some of the cards he was holding, decreasing your value for the card. Don't get me wrong, I know it can occasionally be a game-winner, but I'm really questioning the need for two of them in this deck. Recently I've been swapping out 1 divine favor for a second echoing ooze, but I could see a whole lot of other cards going in that slot there instead.

Divine Favor is crucial, in a deck that plays so much damage you're going to be in topdeck mode at the end of the game just hoping you draw the burn. Even if in that situation Divine Favor only draws you one or two cards, it drastically increases your odds to hit the right cards.

 

Also without it, your matchup against Handlock, Freeze Mage and Control Warrior goes down the toilet.

Why 2 consecutive consecrates? I seem to be rarely using even 1.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 10/10H NH 6/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      If you are interested, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
       
      Thank you for your consideration

      Blizzard have announced that the next Hearthstone year will be called The Year of the Mammoth. Six cards from the Classic set will be moved to a new Hall of Fame set, which can only be played in Wild.
      The announcement explains that the new Hall of Fame set will include cards that are currently in the Reward set, but the big news here is the six cards that will be leaving Standard. You can see Blizzard's reasons on the link above, but I've given a few notes in this article. Those cards are shown below.
      As well as the removed cards, there will be no adventures in 2017. Instead we will be given three full expansions that will be accompanied by a single-player mission, which will be used to enhance flavour, and offer challenges. This sounds like it will be along the lines of an adventure, but optional. I feel this is a great change, as it hurts nobody.

      Azure Drake is simply in too many decks. It is a hard card to nerf without making it weak, but it is pretty much as powerful as a 5-drop can be. Removing this to free up other 5-drops makes sense.

      The reasoning for Sylvanas is similar. Blizzard's words make a lot of sense on this one, and also give an insight into the future:
      Blizzard
      Similar to Azure Drake, it’s hard to see a card at the six mana cost out-value Sylvanas. In addition, Sylvanas has the most powerful Deathrattle effect in the game—as a comparison, the Priest card Mind Control costs 10 mana. We have exciting Deathrattle build-arounds coming soon, and in combination with Sylvanas, they would be too powerful for Standard. This seems to imply that N'Zoth, the Corruptor will be making a big comeback soon!

      I suspect a lot of people will be glad to see the back of Ragnaros. The Random element was often a contentious issue.

      The removal of Power Overwhelming is a bit of a surprise, but it seems that it has mainly been nerfed because of its strength in combinaton with cards like Leeroy Jenkins and Faceless Manipulator. I would also assume that Warlock is going to be getting some fun new toys to replace it.

      Ice Lance has been removed to remove Freeze Mage and allow new strategies to develop. It is also interesting that Blizzard mention it will allow them to make cards that copy cards. That could also apply to Power Overwhelming, so I would expect something along those lines to be in the next set.

      Conceal leaving will make sense to everyone. It allows Gadgetzan Auctioneer to survive as an interesting card, and removes the annoyance of not being able to interact with your opponent.
