Deck "Secrets Paladin and variants" being a cancer on the ladder

7 posts in this topic

Hello.

I am absolutely being wrecked on the ladders by the Secrets Paladin decks. I am playing variants of legendary shaman cont, tempo mage and several paladin decks.

My guess is using the "eater of secrets"  card. but I don't seem to have a good idea how to put it in a deck.

 

the secrets are not that hard to foresee, but I lose my board control or hand and don't have the time to regain any position before its to late.  

any advice for me? or links to existing decks would be appreciated.

 Thanks!

 

DS.

I used to play Secret Paladin a lot and the most annoying matchups were Aggro decks like Hunter, because they'd often kill me before turn 6.

For me weapons work! Just attack the mysterious challenger, get down the noble sacrifice, proc the redemption and the Avenge and you only have a 2-1 defender and a buffed mysterious challenger, if there are no other minions in play. Hex afterwards does the job perfectly :)

Problems with Secret Paladin in 2016? Oh boy, where have you been all that time?

That deck is easy to beat. Just play something that's doesn't durdle around. Sealing early pressure is the key. Zoo, Aggro Shaman and Patron Warrior are solid choices - 'been pretty much pushing Paladin away in the last seasons of that format, even without Eater of Secrets.

If you wish to control the game or outvalue them, try a deck that you've put answers in and card draw to line them up reliably. It's not a great idea though because all your removal has to be pretty much on point all the time and it still may be not enough because Paladin has good value and Divine Favor.

Or play Standard. I've heard there is no good Secret Paladin there.

hehe. I've been taking a brake for about a little over half a year. just been playing again for about a week. just got the cards from LEO and been climbing the wild ladder. Sec pally was to be honest kind of new to me. but some good advice here, ill grind up some mote knowledge and build a deck to stand against the current meta.

This made me love Hearthstone again.

You could also play Freeze Mage.

I play it on Wild since with the current Warrior Rampage in Standard playing Freeze Mage there is little fun, and I am always happy to be paired against Paladin. It is no auto win by any means, but I would say around 60% in Freeze Mage's favor.

      I need guidance!
      I'm a returning player from the MoP era, I've played throughout TBC and beyond and currently I'm a iLvl 890 Mage. I haven't played any of Legion launch content, no 7.1/7.2 content when I first started playing again. Currently I've been doing all of the broken isles quests, currently on the last which is Suramar and my entire Broken Isles Rep standing is at Honoured across the board at this moment in time (btw this rep wall for flying is a joke).
      So here I am questing, doing dungeons and LFR. Multi-tasking multiple things, I've just received the last follower for the class hall quests, it's so overwhelming and I have no idea what I need to do to make sure I'm not missing out any tasty loot because I'm an avid completionist and wouldn't want to miss a mount or title or anything haha! But like I said, I'm so very overwhelmed by everything and I don't want to be doing things that I don't really need to do unless I get something shiny. Am I gonna be screwed if I skip the Broken Shore? Do i just go straight into argus? I love leveling alt characters but if i do all this, and have to do it again on an alt, I would be so angry. Obviously the Legion flying will benefit the alt, but if I can just skip to Argus(?), is it really worth it? Like jump straight into argus if its not gonna damage my alt toons chances of getting gear? WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING AND WHAT AM I WASTING MY TIME ON? - is the question I'm asking here. I hate missing a trick, please halp ! D;

      So, I'm currently maining Blood DK and that's the spec that I've gotten my 4 legends on. I do occasionally use UH and was wondering which of my legends would be most effective for it. Just a foreword, all of the gear that the legends replace is about equal; all 915-920 and don't cause any major stat changes so its not like using one legend over another causes me to use a bad piece. I have Soul of the Deathlord, which is the one I use most on UH, and I have  Shackles of Bryndaor, Archimonde's Hatred Reborn, and Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus. Does the Shackles passive work on UH, if so, could that be a better boost for Val'kyr[Dark Arbiter Talent] (b/c you can cycle more RP)? Other than that I'm just wondering which out weighs the other, STR or the secondaries?
      Edit: and just in case it makes a difference, my talent build is; http://www.wowhead.com/talent-calc/death-knight/unholy/c75z

      Hey guys,
      I'm new to playing affliction lock and ranged DPS in general really. Can someone help me see why my DPS isn't where it should be? I've changed my stats around and have been playing with my legendaries and rotation but I can't seem to improve. If someone has some ideas it would be much appreciated.

      Hello, 
      I am concerned that I am severely under performing as a fury warrior. I can manage to parse typically in the 80s for almost every fight in heroic ToS with a few exceptions: Mistress, Host, Avatar. I'm currently 933 equipped and I'm not at all concerned about my stats... I know I should and could be parsing in the 90s. But I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. 
       
      My opener looks something like this: Charge, Pop Moonglaives trinket, Pop all CDS, Raging Blow, Oden's Fury, Rampage, then start normal priority rotation: Enraged RB>100 rage Rampage>RB>BT>FS. 
       
      I have recently discovered that I have been doing my execute phase entirely wrong. I just went and tried first two bosses of heroic ToS again. Parses went up slightly... Goroth: 83->89, Inquis:84->90 but still not where I need to be. 
      Another think I'd like to mention is that I try to prioritize Enraged RB @100 rage before hitting rampage. According to Kelade (one of top fury warriors in US), this is 100k dps difference. Although at times I find myself in an awkward situation where I'm at 100 rage with RB on CD and I literally have to wait a whole global to hit it... I'd like to know how to make that stop lol. 
       
      Last issue I'd like to bring up is this: Most of the time not all my CDs will line up perfectly together... BC, glaives, OF will be up but Avatar will be down. I'm slightly confused about when to use All/some of my cds... especially on fights like heroic KJ. Fights like Harj and Miss I'm confused about if I should hold all my cds for adds or blow them in the beginning along with prepot... I feel like prepot is a total waste without cds...
       
      Below you will find the link to my armory and logs. Please Help me. I need to be parsing much higher than I am. My guild is doing mythic and I don't want to be the one holding us back.

      I've been playing a hunter for as long as I've been playing this game.  And for the first time in raiding, I feel like I am not doing my best and I cannot figure out why. I look at second by second rotations of top parsing hunters. In the past I was the one helping others out and writing small guides on forums...now I'm the one asking for help. 
      Here is a link to Goroth Mythic (my hunter's name is Mezäsu):

      I am very open to criticism and any help anyone has to offer.
      I tried going into the Discord to ask for help there but was not able to get a word in (as the helpers were busy with other people). Hoping I may have better luck here.
