This deck looks to be good fun.  How would you feel about replacing Leroy Jenkins with Brann Bronzebeard? 

 

I've had some success with Stand Against Darkness with Knife Juggler and with Steward of Darkshire.  Can't figure out how to work it into the tempo of this deck though.

The only minions who would benefit from Brann are Abusive Sergeants and Bilefin tidehunters (unless Brann+Blood Knight combo is bugged). I don't think that's enough for Brann to be included.

This deck is terribad.  I've lost 5 games in a row with it.

I recommend you to read the attached guide, watch some videos/streams with the deck, or spectate your friends who play the deck. I personally have, at the time of writing, 55% winrate with the deck, and I am a bad player of aggro decks. I believe that players that can actually play aggro will have much higher winrate.

Wolfrider could be used as another aggro card. The other option is probably King Mukla, though now with meta infested by tempo mages, I cannot recommend it.

Leeroy isn't necessary, you can put in just about any other solid Aggro card. Wolfrider, Southsea Deckhand etc.

Really enjoying this deck. Has anyone tried it with a 2nd Bloodknight? Lots of divine shields flying around so it's quite easy to get him a good buff.

I was thinking of replacing one of the Bilefin Tidehunters as these guys haven't presented me much value yet - one of the minions pretty much always gets hero powered, wrath, mortal coil etc.

A good add to this deck is the Noble Sacrifice, sinergy very well w/ steward and rallying blade, or just steward

I am killing it with this deck, especially against slow C'Thun buffers. He usually never makes it out. I made a couple of changes as options for slow starts, like an Equality/Consecration combo, + a Ragnaros and Tirion Fordring for late game options, but the ever present Divine Shields are very good at trading or keeping opponents minions down while building yours. You can refill your board pretty quickly if you get AoE'd as well most of the time. Having your Noble Sacrifices get buffed with a shield is really irritating to your opponent I imagine, and is really helpful. I don't have Uldamon in the deck yet (need to get it), but Aldor is good defensive card for now. I even run without Blood Knight and usually don't miss it. The shields are better for keeping minions on the board, generally. I haven't played Paladin this much in a while.

replacements for keeper?

No real replacement for this one. If you think reducing attack is fine, make them follow the rules, but it's not really an aggro card; maybe you could fit a Defender of Argus in, it shouldn't be very difficult to get 2 minions to buff with it.

Brilliant - Just won 7 in a row.

I do love aggro decks and I put Rag and BloodHound into it.

I assembled this deck according to the decklist and have read through the guide a few times. I seem to be having a little trouble packing the punch that is typically required to win games with an aggro deck. I don't know if it's just me or if maybe it's the meta. I do love the theme and divine shield synergy is obviously awesome. I hope to be able to increase my win rate with this deck because when it works it is super fun to play. If anyone has any advice to offer it is more than welcome.

 

Thanks.

Please take this with the heftiest of grains of salt...

 

But I had terrible luck running this as an aggro deck. I've had much more success playing it like I do zoo. It's a board control deck with a lot of mid range synergies. There are draws you'll get where you can race your opponent down and have lethal turns 6-8, but even then keeping the board clear is what works for me. It's getting a little harder to play thanks to the success of zoo, but it's a ton of fun.

Honestly, as someone who adores aggressive paladin variants I just don't find the deck that good right now(not just sottle's list, but aggro pally in general). It just gets outclassed by zoo at being a board flooding deck, and by aggro shaman at being a more facey aggro deck. The being said, I do think it can still hit legend, and when it draws well(ie getting steward to trigger on multiple minions, followed by drawing rallying blade) it can just blow up every other deck in the game, but it suffers from inconsistency. I think the main reason for this is that paladin lost all their solid early game options, and they now have to run minions which are much easier to remove/contest.

 

In fact, i'm kind of inclined to make a comparison between this deck and egg druid.

Hi... I highly respect Sottle's deck choices... and I have been enjoying his Aggro Paladin.  But I found another similar deck online that seems to be quite popular.  What is your evaluation of this deck?   It seems to tech in some choices to address the meta like Consecration, Equality, etc.  Is it "Sottle-Worthy"?

 

It looks like this:

2 Abusive Sergeant

2 Argent Squire

2 Selfless Hero

2 BileFin Tidehunter

2 Argent Protector

1 Equality

1 Aldor Peacekeeper

2 Argent Horserider

1 Blood Knight

2 DivineFavor

2 Rallying Blade

1 Seal of Champions

2 Steward Of DarkShire

2 Blessing of Kings

1 Consecration

2 Keeper of Uldaman

2 Truesilver Champion

1 Stand Against Darkness

this deck is terrible with the current meta...board clears/taunts are everywhere. i really think a new paladin deck is needed that doesnt cost 12000~ dust or lose against the meta

Yes, it's very unfortunate that the current meta forces players to use rather expensive decks for some classes, such as warrior or paladin. However, since C'thun is free, you can make your own C'thun deck with a very low amount of dust, or even no dust at all. Another important thing you have to do because of the meta is dust management, so you don't "waste" dust. Good dust management will allow you to get the expensive decks much faster.

yes, but my point was actually that the guide should be changed to reflect it (take this deck out) because i honestly think its plain horrible right now. the deck itself is fun theoretically, but its not really feasible right now and not strong

Firstly, if a deck's guide should be changed every time the deck becomes meta or off-meta, it would simply take up too much time.

Secondly, meta changes multiple times during a month. Aggro pally was rather powerful two weeks ago, now it's bad, and probably in like 2 weeks it will be powerful again. So, unless a deck is weak in the long-term, I don't think it is required to be changed to a "fun deck".

Aggro pally is not in a good spot right now, but it's still more than good enough to reach legend if you really want to. In fact, a guy got to rank 1 legend with the deck not long ago.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 1 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
