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.

      So here I am, consulting Icy Veins forums. I am a Frost Death Knight, with an iLevel of 885 that is REALLY struggling with my dps. I'm running a BoS build because it was recommended to my by other Frost Dks. I have done a ton of research about this issue to no avail and I really need some professional help. 
      Here's my armory and my charts for my last Heroic Nighthold with my guild

      Dps Charts: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/21405978/latest#
      Note: I do see that my Haste is incredibly high, I'm currently working to get the 4-piece tier gear.

      So I've been pushing and pushing to get my DPS up over the course of the new expansion.  I've managed to bag my self the legendary shoulders and feet. I've been looking at logs and trying to improve things. I learnt a new opener (which massively improved my dps) and got my crit up (as I noticed other rogues had much higher crit than me).
      And now I just don't know what to do. I just can't seem to get better!
      I'll put a link to logs from the last heroic nighthold we did. It wasn't my best night performance wise  anyway (i'm playing on a potato and we had a huge raid group - fps sat between 6-15 for the whole raid). I think I'm doing something wrong with my main rotation when compared to the other rogue than joined us but I just don't know what it is. I'm stumped.

      So if anyone can see obvious mistakes then please shout at me so I can fix them. It's getting really frustrating!    You should be able to get to past logs through this link too.

      As the title says, I need some help with my dps. I feel like i should be doing a lot more. Specially when compared to the top balance druid in my guild, Malakye.
      Granted, I do not have the same legendaries, nor are the ones that I have (shoulder (Lady something), belt, boots and haste/crit ring) exceptionally good either. 

      Currently I have about 24% haste and 70% mastery. It should be the other way around, but those are the stats that I get when using a 1.2 Haste, 1.1 int and 9.0 Mastery and 0.0 Crit/Vers.

      I can push my stats to 32% Haste and 43.5% Mastery at the cost of 3,000 intellect. But I do not think that exchange is worth it. Nonetheless I shall try it tonight on Mythic Chronos.

      Here are my warcraft logs:

      Hello to who ever has chosen to read this thread.
      I'm a fury warrior who seems to be struggling to get the right damage output that from looking at logs i should be getting, hitting a maximum of 21% Pars.
      Just put on my 4 slot and 1 legendary to see if this will help, which has dropped my Haste to 27%, no BIS trinkets. I have the crit ring, Secret (Gutted), Shoulders and wrists, i have chosen the wrists and lost the shoulders for tier.

      Any help would be great, i'm constantly using SimC, and using the rotation that has been drilled into me from guides. Average DPS is 440k -520k.
