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.

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.

      My DPS is really comically low. These logs are old and I hadn't read the compendium at the time, but even after doing that I can't stay above like 160k on target dummies. Simcraft is telling me I should be pushing close to 300k, and the people in the Warrior discord tell me that I should be able to get pretty close to those numbers.

      So can someone just come meet me in Skyhold and help me out or something? I've read about the rotation, and had people tell me it, but I just need someone to like see what I'm doing wrong or something.

      I'm Boogal on Emerald Dream US, horde side. Send me a whisper or reply here I guess.

      Hi,
       
      Heading into Nighthold for the first time tonight and now sure how to spec.
      ST?
      AOE?
      MoC or Volley? Is Stampede worth taking?
       
      Help please.

      Hey yall! so i'm writing this because i just want to undesrtand something. my friend and i compared numbers today because we are both shadow priests albeit i have a higher ilvl than he does maybe by around 7 im sitting at 863 . 
      what happend was during the last fight we decided to do the same -ish rotations meaing we both had vamp touch and shadow pain up on the same boss at all times.
      at the end of the fight i found something odd,
      his vamp touch dealt 4.99m dmg with max hit at 315 and minimum 
      mine only dealt 3.71 with max hit at 335 but take this in, minimum hit at 17k LOLLL
      another thing that got my attention
      his max hit on mind blast was 512 k, while mine was only at 281k.
      his crit and mastery stands at 20% and 40%, mine at 24% and 42%
      his haste stands at 27 and mine stands at 24
      can anyone explain this? at all? does it make any sense at all LOL

      Hello all,
      So, first off, I've decided to bring my hunter out of retirement and have begun the (not so horrid) grind. I've reached the point in Legion where I have both my BM and MM artifacts and I've messed around the current "best" talent choices and rotations to try and see how they play out.
      I'm in the early stages of Legion levelling (currently 103) but I have mained a Death Knight since just after Legion started and wanted a nice old school rDPS alternative for when the raids call for it. I've messed around with both specs *briefly* (and naturally as I level I'll get a better feel for them both) and I can't really decide which route I'd prefer to go down and with the incoming changes to BM (buffs all around it seems) and nerfs to some aspects of MM I'd really like to gather the opinions of other people to help me decide which route is best for me.
      Things I've noticed so far:
      1. Focus regen is an issue in BM and too a lesser extent in MM, I constantly find myself out of focus for up to 1-2 seconds, so I'm stood AAing - is this normal? A product of low, under-geared, lack of haste?
      2. Sidewinders feels HORRIBLE to use. I'm all for using what is best for that DPS race, but this talent just feel so poor to use. It might be a product of the way I play my Frost DK, but I like having filler spells, and the loss and or Arcane and Multi shot spam just hurts my gameplay feel.
      3. Did I mention Sidewinders feels horrible? The fact it pulls everything unless I'm hugging my target in melee range really doesn't make sense to me either. Why is this the mechanic?
      4. From a round of log reading I've seen that both BM and MM (as of 7.1.0) perform better in various fights and in various ways -- But my guild mates tell me otherwise. This could be a lack of them personally playing either spec, but just something I wanted to query what people think, although I guess with the changes coming it isn't as relevant now.
       
      For anyone that can give me any advice on which way to go it would be very appreciated, I'd love to get back into Hunter, I just really can't decide which spec will suit me best in playstyle and raiding! (Also, I'm torn on a class fantasy level because Windrunner bow vs 2 pets!)
      Thanks for taking the time to read (and reply!)

      So, I am maining a Blood DK. I recently started playing some Unholy (Love the Lore and class Art ;) ). My dilemma is that I'm not that good, so in an attempt to truly understand the class I tried my hand at creating a DPS prio WeakAura.
       

      The WeakAura does:
      Not track CDs
      Not track Talents
      Shows (what I understands is the) single-target rotation
       
      Now I am looking for feedback on it. So if anyone wants, have the time and so on, pleas leave a comment if I got something wrong.
