Midrange Paladin Deck List

Recommended Posts

Guest Martyknutsen

Paladin is a hidden gem. Having no Tarim I've opted for hogger in the seven slot. It's doing ok I guess but I can't help thinking there's a better fit until I gather up the dust for Tarim. Any ideas?

Although Hogger is my favourite legendary, and can be a huge issue for your opponent sometimes, the expected value is quite low, and there are a lot of better cards t consider, such as Bluegill WarriorAcidic Swamp Ooze or Primalfin Lookout.

I don't think I'd drop the Warleader for it. If you wanted to take out the Ivory Knight for either the Tar Creeper, or for Wickerflame Burnbristle, that would be fine. The Warleader can be good against aggro when it buffs your turn 2 Hydrologist.

Edit: lowered the warleader level a touch. (From really good)

One slight correction... you suggest that a Lightfused Stegodon might be a good pick up from Stonehill Defender, but I don't think that's possible since it's not a taunt minion.

Thanks for pointing this out, we'll be fixing this shortly. The author meant Stegodon.

It doesn't really take much getting used to, but you should probably practice in casual for a bit until you switch to ranked. I played 2 casual games and then switched to ranked and win-streaked from rank 11 to rank 9.

 

As for playing very control oriented, that's a mistake with this deck since it's a midrange deck. It has great cards to keep/regain board dominance but doesn't have any of the standard late game control mechanics.

 

The main strengths of the deck are as follows:

Strong murloc opening- Vilefin Inquisitor, Rockpool hunter, murloc warleader, gentle megasaur (This can destroy aggro decks as well as control decks before they can even begin to take control)

 

Board control- If your opponent's side is full of huge minions you can regain control by using sun keeper tarim to turn all minions to 3/3s (so you should be using your hero power to have lots of 1/1 tokens) Or you can use the classic equality/consecration if they're completely overwhelming you.

 

Heals- Ragnaros, lay on hands, and ivory knight are all incredible for catching back up after a difficult start

 

The two aspects of this deck that takes some getting used to is deciding which secret to choose for each situation, and which taunts/adapts to choose. Practice a bit in casual though and you'll figure it out in no time.

 

Good luck, hope this helps!

Past rank 8 the current meta is consisting of mostly secret mage ATM. With all their spell creation they seem to consistently be able to counter spells and mirror entity the biggest minions.

Can the pirate crab be swapped out for an eater of secrets? Or should I even put in 2 eaters?

Sure, you can swap in one copy, but if it proves to be not enough, you can add a second one. However, at this point, one should be enough.

A similar list to this took me to Rank 5 for the first time. With a WR over 61%. (62-39). From Rank 9 to Rank 5, I went 11-1.

One of the best matchups is warrior (12-4) , not sure about archetype WR's specifically. Though I can say it works against both. If you can stay alive until you hit Spikeridged Steed, game is nearly over against pirate warrior. Or, you can build your board faster with Vilefin InquisitorMurloc Tidecaller and Murloc Warleader. If you're ahead on board against this deck by Turn 5, its almost always a win, because in mid game, taunts take place.

Hunter (8-3), Rogue (9-4) , Paladin mirrors (7-2), Priest (8-4) worked well for me.

Shaman is a terrible matchup (2-8), at least, it is not common. Also, these numbers are before I added two copies of Equality to the deck. After it, I've never seen one.

Mage is the most abundant matchup for sure, with 22 games. Especially secret mage is a pain in the neck. However, both freeze and control  mage matchups can be handled with an aggresive approach, while both seemed to be advantageous over mid paladin according to statistics. Total numbers are 12-10.

Didn't play against a single Warlock with this deck.

I have trouble against Rogue quest decks. When they finish the quest really quickly (sometimes as early as round 4), then I have trouble against the charging 5/5 horde.

Any advice or recommended spells or minions against them?

Murloc midrange paladin should be favoured against quest rogue, and my experience with this deck (though a bit limited) confirms that. This deck runs solid removal, but also has enough early game minions to help you defend and clear the board in the early game. Sunkeeper Tarim and Tirion Fordring help you stabilize on board, and Ragnaros, Lightlord helps you get out of charge range.

It's important to get a lot of juice from your Equality + Consecration combo, and to keep the board clear with your minions, even if it means suboptimal trades, as you will be able to overpower your opponent in the late-game.

I would suggest uploading a few replays of your losses against quest rogues (3 or 4 should be enough), so we can figure out what is wrong, and which swaps will help you based on your playstyle.

One change that really helped me is taking out golakka crawlerand replacing it with coldlight oracle. works well with the murloc synergy and also helps get to the much needed end game cards faster

I find it really confusing to know which deck ppl are talking about unless they name it exactly or show a deck list because many different decks of the same type lead to the same single Guide Comment Topic. Even though decks can be of the same archetype they can be totally different.

I assume you are referring either to https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/kiblers-top-100-legend-handbuff-paladin-deck or https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/findans-rank-1-legend-murloc-paladin-deck.

I don't have The Black Knight and I want to say even if you use a deck you find here, you do not have to copy it exactly to work. I prefer to make my own individual builds even if I have all the cards.

But back to your question. Play the deck a bit with a replacement that fits into the deck. Through experience you will see if you have problems dealing with taunt minions or not. If I am not wrong there are no real alternatives for The Black Knight in Standard Format for Paladin.

The only options I can suggest to deal with taunt minions is using a minion with Poisonous (maybe one with stealth or taunt), Spiked Hogrider (not the best solution) or Big Game Hunter since most taunt minions you will have trouble with are big ones, since KFT expansion often those buffed by Bonemare. Another option, if you just have problems with the taunt but not a minion being on the board itself you may consider silencing them for example with Spellbreaker.

My advice may not be the best. Others around here are better in deck building than me :)

What card should I put in place instead of black knight.

Because The Black Knight is a tech card, you have a lot of freedom when choosing a card to replace it. You can either go with a different tech card to fit your local meta, such as Acidic Swamp Ooze against warriors, Equality against druids and control warlocks (though it is a complex card in murloc paladin), or you could go for a "regular" card, such as Truesilver Champion or second Blessing of Kings.

      Doom in the Tomb is now live and the update comes with all-new 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards and 23 cards that are temporarily stepping out of Wild back into Standard. Note that the cards will remain in Standard until the next major update and exact end dates and times will be announced in the weeks ahead.
      Blizzard (Source)
      A new Hearthstone update has just arrived, featuring the “Doom in the Tomb” Hallow’s End event, Wild cards temporarily returning to Standard, portrait rewards for dedicated Hearthstone players, and much more!
      New Event - Doom in the Tomb!

      Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum’s deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues! The new Doom in the Tomb event starts today, October 8, and will last until October 30. Here’s what’s in store:

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1
      Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum! The clock is running, too – race to set the record for the fastest Temple run! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and earn a Rastakhan’s Rumble Card Pack. Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2
      E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed. New enemies and challenges await!

      Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy
      Week 3: The Haunted Carousel
      Get ready for the big mix-up! In this Tavern Brawl, you’ll need to strategize around minions constantly rotating board positions – all while controlling the Horseman’s time-shifted Dreadsteeds!

      Rewards Summon 100 Dreadsteeds to earn a Rise of Shadows Card Pack Dual-Class Heroes

      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s Eve dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, anyone who logs in during each of the first two weeks will receive one Arena Ticket per week! This event coincides with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation are as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle
      If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle
      Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Standard Shake-Up

      Starting with today’s patch and lasting until our next major update, 23 cards from across Hearthstone history are temporarily stepping out of Wild and back into Standard. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards you'll still receive these event copies, and when the event ends they'll disappear.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.
      Card List: Druid: Astral Communion Kun the Forgotten King Mage: Babbling Book Flamewaker Paladin: Mysterious Challenger Avenge Hunter: Lock and Load Call of the Wild Shaman: Evolve Thing from Below Rogue: Shaku, the Collector Swashburglar Priest: Lightbomb Vol'jin Warlock: Imp Gang Boss Renounce Darkness Warrior: Varian Wrynn Bloodhoof Brave Neutral: N'Zoth, the Corruptor Sylvanas Windrunner Ragnaros the Firelord The Curator Emperor Thaurissan 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards

      The time has come for dedicated Hearthstone players to flex their Hero mastery! We’re introducing new portraits earned by achieving 1,000 Ranked or Arena wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals.

      Blizzard today announced a new event coming to the game on October 8. It's called Doom in the Tomb. Check out what's in store for Hearthstone this month!
      UPDATE
      Placeholder for tweet 1180177096972222464 Blizzard (Source)
      Legends have told of dangers lurking within the Haunted Temple of Uldum and the grand ancient treasures they conceal. Of course, “treasure” was all anyone had to mention to get Reno and Rafaam on board, and now their sights are set on acquiring the temple’s powerful artifacts for their own campaigns!
      It won’t be an easy task, though. While our Heroes and Villains battle to push deeper through the Haunted Temple, the Headless Horseman has resorted to a nefarious contingency and opened a sealed sarcophagus full of WILD terrors. Now it will be up to you to aid the conquests of good, or E.V.I.L, in a race to uncover the tomb’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the tomb!

      Step into the Haunted Tomb
      The spooky spelunking adventures begin at 10:00 AM PT on October 8 and end at 9:00 AM PT on October 30 – three weeks packed full of new activities to participate in:

      Treasures from the Tomb!

      23 cards from across Hearthstone history have been unsealed from Wild and unleashed by the Headless Horseman!

      Today we get a look at some of the smaller stuff coming up in Hearthstone's future, including new events like dual-class arenas, 23 old cards returning to standard (Ragnaros and N'zoth were mentioned), new class portraits for 1000 wins, and plenty of quality of life improvements!
      Behind the Doors (source)
      While we’re constantly recruiting lackeys, tinkering with experimental tech, and delving into dusty tombs to bring you new Hearthstone expansions and Adventures, we’re also hard at work on some awesome, albeit less flashy, new stuff. In this blog we’ll shine a light on some of the smaller, but still exciting new features, events, and changes coming to Hearthstone in the near future.

       
      Adding More Events

      After the overwhelmingly positive response to the recent Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. event, we’re looking for more opportunities to introduce even more large-scale in-game events with rewards, themed Tavern Brawls, and changes that could temporarily (or permanently!) create fun new Hearthstone experiences for players.
      We’re starting off with a new event in just a couple weeks featuring Dungeon Run-inspired Tavern Brawls, dual-class Arenas, Legendary quest rewards, and some meta-shifting changes outlined in the “Shaking up Standard Play” section below.
      We’ll have more to share on this sensationally spooky event on October 4, but in the meantime . . . try not to lose your head!
       

      Shaking up Standard Play

      Now that the Saviors of Uldum Standard ladder experience has solidified, we think it’s a great time to throw a wrench or two (or twenty-three) in the gears. We’re going to be pulling some of the most popular and game-changing cards from across Hearthstone history, including
      Ragnaros the Firelord and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, out of Wild and dropping them back into Standard for a limited time. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get them into the action.
      We’ll be sharing more details (including the full list of 23 cards) in a blog update on October 4. Stay tuned!

      1,000 Win Class Portraits
      Looking ahead, we want to continue celebrating personal successes and milestones for all you dedicated Hearthstone players. Our next major update will introduce some really cool new portraits that you can earn by earning 1,000 wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals. Take a look at a couple of examples below and start stacking up those wins!



      Quality of Life Improvements
       
      Alternate Search Terms
      We want it to be easier to quickly find the cards you’re looking for while deckbuilding, so we’re adding alternate search terms for some hard-to-type cards. We’ll be adding common misspellings and simplified versions of leetspeak card names (found on some Mech minions). For example, searching “snip” or “snap” will now show you SN1P-SN4P. While this feature will only be enabled for a few commonly misspelled cards at first, we’ll be able to add even more alternate search terms as needed.
      This feature will also support languages other than English. For example, SN1P-SN4P in Latin American Spanish is “CL1C-CL4C”, so searching “clic” would return the expected results. Quest Changes
      While not included in our next major update, here’s a preview of some of the changes we’re making to quests a little further down the line.
      We’re cutting some of the less popular daily quests and tuning down some of their requirements to make them quicker and easier to complete. We’ll also be adding some new quests to the pool to mix things up! We split most daily quests into two buckets: Easy (50g) and Slightly More Difficult (60g). Rerolling a Slightly More Difficult (60g) quest (like Play 10 Beasts) always gives you an Easy (50g) quest, so players can be guaranteed to get an Easy quest every day if they want. We love  Murlocs and Pirates as much as anyone, but it should be your choice if you decide to complete their quests.
      We’re excited to be bringing these new features, events, and other changes to Hearthstone soon. Please let us know what you think on social media or the official Hearthstone forums. Until then, we’ll see you in the Tavern!
