Thank you! We have a lot more cool Hearthstone things in the works.

 

As for this deck, I agree that it is very powerful. This has a lot to do with the fact that many staple Paladin cards are basic, unlike certain other classes for which basic cards are not very strong (Druids, Shamans, Rogues).

The deck list doesn't contain 2 wild pyros, but you mention them in the explanations/combo part.

Can you add a replacement list for cards that would be good to replace with ones that aren't as useful? I have Lay on Hands x1, and I find it's extremely powerful for healing and drawing power where Holy Light lacks.

I'm afraid I'm finding it difficult to understand what you mean.

 

I'd appreciate it if you could specify which deck you are referring to. Thank you!

Argent Protector is amazing, it can easily make card advantage in early game or give you an edge in later stages. You should definitely include them in your deck. Swapping out Hand of Protection could work just fine.

Im either getting/making bad decks or having a hard time understanding how to play the paladin class well. Im mostly speaking from using it in arena (i play mage, war, priest in ranked) but i just cant ever seem to get my class going. I dont know how to stop rush decks at all without using consecration/equality. When i play control decks it seems like they just remove/cc all my big minions with high attack or taunt. All my buffed up minions may stay alive for a turn, and then get silenced. Iv been trying to learn pally because i know alot of ppl say they are strong in arena (while priest and war are not as strong) however im not fairing well. Can anyone give me some tips on how to play pallys more effectively?

 

Heres an example of how i lost to a rogue the other day in arena (maybe he just played it perfectly). Rogue went first and threw out the murloc with charge. My turn i used coin and threw out an argent protector (figuring rogue couldnt use weapon to kill me so i could survive to take out murloc). 2nd turn rogue threw out faerie dragon and used backstab on ap. My second turn i threw out a leper gnome (didnt have much else to play). His third turn used fan of knives. My third turn summoned a 1/1 and put out argent squire. his 4th turn he used his weapon then killed squire with dragon only leaving my 1/1. My 4th i put out a senjin sheildmasta. His 5th he crafted weapon, pulled out s1:7 agent then kill senjin with murloc, then killed my 1/1. i played 2 more minion on 5th. On 6th he put out chillwind yet. By this point i was really hurting healthwise and had no answer to any of his minions or attacks. i wasnt sure what to do to counter this (granted its arena so i understand you cant set up a deck perfectly).

Well, the first thing I'd say is that you should read our Arena Guide (if you haven't already).

 

This isn't really the place to discuss Arena, but what I'll say that minion-buffing is pretty integral to Paladin gameplay. And a few notes regarding this:

 

1) Do not buff a minion (such as with Blessing of Kings or Blessing of Might, or even Blessing of Wisdom) until that minion can actually attack (so don't buff them on the turn you play them, unless they have Charge). Buffed minions will often be silenced or quickly removed, so you cannot afford to have them be removed without making even a single attack.

 

2) Do not stack all your buffs on the same minion. That makes it a prime silence target, and you will lose multiple cards to a single Silence.

 

3) Argent Protectors are best used to shield minions allowing them to survive "trades". So, playing an Argent Protector without any minion to buff is not advised, unless you're in a very desperate situation. In your case, I would say there was no need to play the AP against a 2/1 Murloc, since your Protector was guaranteed to die. You said you played a Argent Protector a few turns later, so if you had had it in your hand, that would have been a much better answer to the Murloc.

I dont like any of this "set up" there is her. I have not try them all, only a few of them, and after loosing 4 out of 5 games, I most say that this most be som sort of pure luck, af any can win a game in rank play with this. But !! Then I can also be in bad luck, or just sux on the game ... LOL. How ever I feel that Palidin is more suitable to have a divind hand.

So I will recomment a hand like that, and I try it my self, and here I win 3 out of 5 in rank play, wich more that I can say for the set up I find her.

 

So My hand for Palidin looks like this:

 

Mana 1. 2x Blessing of might - 1x eye for an eye - 2x Hands of protection - 1x Nobel sacrifice - 2x Argent squite - 1x Young priestess. Mana 2. 1x Holy light - 2x Argent protector - 1x Frost wolf - 2x Ironbeak owl. Mana 3. 1x sword of Justice - 1x Blood knight

( battlecry: all miniors lose Divin shield: gain +3/+3 for each shield lost. It can becom a VERY nasty Card. If you eks. have 3 minion with Divin shiels, it will have 3x3 wich give it a + 9/9. With any luck you can then give it a Blessing of Kings wich will give it +4/+4, and then you have a VERY nasty Card... :-) ) 1x Magma Rager ( mostly her becose it have a +5 attack, but it can be replace if you like ) 2x scarlet crusader

mana 4. 1x traesilver champion - 2x Blessing of Kings - 1x silvermoon guardian - 1x spellbreaker . mana 6. 1x avengin wrath ( deals 8  damage. thats allways nice ) 1x argen commander - 1x sunwalker.Mana 7 1x guardin of Kings.mana 8. 1x tirion fordring

 

Maybe this set up it not for all likes, but I feel that this is a fair hand for the palidin. Try it out, and how know´s maybe you like it :-)

 

 

Good luck

Why is cult master not used in paladin? Is it bad, bad in paladin, or just isn't included in these decks?

I just started a few days ago but have been fortunate in arena drops. I was able to craft/acquire 2 shielded minibots and muster for battles. i also had the Dr. Boom drop for me. Should I replace equal cost cards in the basic paladin deck or leave them out until I the cards for a more advanced deck?

Yep those cards will fit just fine, none of them require any special synergy or anything to be powerful, just jam them on in there :P

Has anyone figured out a good dragon pally deck?

Honestly, I feel like Dragon Pally is just inferior to Midrange Pally, which is why I haven't made a guide for it yet. I'm still trying to find a strong build for it.

      We take a look back on the first week of the KFT metagame to share everything you can do to dominate the next one.
      With the first week of Knights of the Frozen Throne behind us we are just now starting to glimpse what the upcoming meta has in store for us. It’s still far too early to claim that all the new decks and archetypes have been finely tuned, but we have learned a lot from our first week with the new cards in KFT.
      The first change we encountered in the new meta was the dominance of the dedicated control deck. Towards the end of the Un’Goro metagame the most dominant decks were almost entirely aggressive or midrange in nature, yet nearly all of the most played decks from the first week of KFT have been controlling. Everybody was very excited to try the new Death Knight cards, and since these cards have high mana costs they tended to end up in naturally controlling or midrange decks.
      Once it became obvious that nearly every deck on the ladder was big and greedy, the next few days became a battle to become even bigger and greedier. At one point while watching Dog’s stream I saw him put N'Zoth into his Control Mage deck with only two Deathrattle cards in the entire deck (Pyros and the Frozen Champions from Sindragosa) to get back from N’Zoth’s battlecry! Talk about greedy.
      As fun as it was to have a Control-dominated meta for the first few days of KFT, this kind of greed wouldn’t go unpunished for very long. Thanks to a lack of Aggro decks, the overwhelming popularity of Jade Druid, and the new cards Simulacrum and Ghastly Conjurer, a more consistent Quest Mage deck emerged as a way to punish the slow meta. As players started to gear more and more towards beating slow decks, the pendulum began to swing back towards the aggro side of things. In the past few days the number of Pirate Warriors on ladder has greatly risen, and I haven’t spotted a single Frost Lich Jaina or Uther of the Ebon Blade in over 100 games.
      Towards the end of the Un’Goro metagame no one class was vastly more dominant than the others, but the same is certainly not true for the early days of KFT. Druid has become the most popular by a wide margin. According to the current Reaper Live report a staggering 36% of the Legend meta is made up of Druid decks. Thanks in no small part to the new cards Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, Druid now boasts highly competitive Midrange and Control decks to compliment the Aggro deck which was already top tier in Un’Goro.
      A major reason why all three decks are so difficult to play against is how difficult it is to mulligan against a Druid. You can never know for sure if you should be keeping cards which are strong against Jade Druid or Aggro Druid, which surely plays a part in the success of both decks. Druid might be quite strong at the moment but it is certainly not unbeatable, and according to the Reaper Live report there are multiple decks which have a positive winrate against two of three Druid builds.
      Meta Beaters
      The perfect deck for this early meta will have the defensive tools to outclass Aggro decks such as Pirate Warrior and Aggro Druid in the early game while still being fast enough to kill Jade Druid and Kazakus Priest decks before they get the chance to dominate the late game. Aggro decks make up only 25% of the current meta, which means it’s still much more important to slant your deck towards the speedy end of things so that you can beat up on the slower decks which are still popular. All of these signs point towards an aggressively slanted Midrange deck as the best choice for the current meta, and the data from Reaper Live agrees. The deck with the best winrates across the board is not a Druid deck at all, but an aggressive Midrange Murloc Paladin deck.
      Midrange Murloc Paladin
      2x Murloc Tidecaller 2x Righteous Protector 2x Vilefin Inquisitor 2x Hydrologist 2x Rockpool Hunter 2x Murloc Warleader 2x Rallying Blade 1x Stonehill Defender 1x Wickerflame Burnbristle 2x Blessing of Kings 2x Corpsetaker 2x Gentle Megasaur 1x Bolvar, Fireblood 1x Finja, the Flying Star 2x Spikeridged Steed 1x Sunkeeper Tarim 2x Bonemare 1x Tirion Fordring Shockingly, Midrange Paladin has positive matchups against every deck in the meta except for Token Shaman and Aggro Druid, but even these matchups sit at a very manageable 48%. The deck was already a strong choice in the Un’Goro meta but it picked up some exciting new toys in KFT to build upon its previous success. Defensive minions like Righteous Protector and Corpsetaker allow the deck stall aggressive decks into the midgame, where Midrange Paladin shines. A Bonemare or a Spikeridged Steed on a Skelemancer is commonly a game ending play, and all of the powerful legendary minions the deck had access to in the Un’Goro meta have gone nowhere.
      Midrange Paladin also packs an impressive number of early Murlocs which are capable of applying tons of pressure. The dream 1-2-3-4 of Murloc Tidecaller into Rockpool Hunter into Murloc Warleader into Gentle Megasaur has to potential to kill as early as turn 4 against any opponent who doesn't pack interaction for the early game . With Murloc Paladin boasting such high win rates across the board, don’t be surprised if you see Hungry Crab start popping up as the tech card of choice in the near future.
      Big Priest
      2x Forbidden Shaping 1x Silence 2x Pint-Size Potion 2x Potion of Madness 2x Shadow Visions 2x Shadow Word: Pain 2x Shadow Word: Death 1x Barnes 2x Eternal Servitude 2x Priest of the Feast 2x Shadow Word: Horror 2x Dragonfire Potion 2x Shadow Essence 1x Free From Amber 1x The Lich King 2x Obsidian Statue 1x Ysera 1x Y'Shaarj, Rage Unbound In what I consider to be another big surprise, Big Priest is the only other deck with positive winrates against two of the three popular Druid decks . A brand new deck in KFT thanks to Eternal Servitude, Shadow Essence, and Obsidian Statue, the deck boasts a dominant 71% winrate against Midrange Druid and a very respectable 53% against Token Druid. Its 45% win rate against Jade Druid isn’t embarrassing either, which means this deck still has some game against the most popular deck in the format.
      Big Priest seems like a very luck-oriented deck on its surface as it features high-roll cards like Barnes and Shadow Essence to pull powerful minions from its deck at a discounted cost, yet in practice the deck is shockingly consistent. It doesn’t have any true misses off a Barnes, who himself is the only awkward card to hit off Shadow Essence. Even if it doesn’t hit one of these cards early, double Dragonfire Potion and double Pint-Size Potion plus Shadow Word: Horror allows the deck to draw out the game until they can play their huge minions naturally.
      With all that said, the deck still has a tendency to defeat itself by drawing the wrong combination of cards. It gets absolutely run over by Pirate Warrior and Quest Mage and isn’t able to run tech cards like Golakka Crawler or Dirty Rat due to the nature of Barnes and Shadow Essence. Fortunately for fans of Big Priest, these two bad matchups make up just 10% of the meta while the positive matchups for Big Priest account for roughly 40% of the meta, making Big Priest an excellent choice for the early KFT metagame.
      Tech of the Week
      The one piece of technology which has remained consistently powerful throughout the first week of KFT is The Black Knight. Thanks to the extremely widespread play of Bonemare there are almost no decks in the metagame which lack a juicy target for The Black Knight to gobble up. This Aggro Druid list which hit #1 Legend not only runs Bonemare, but also runs The Black Knight to pave the way for its cheaper minions to sneak in those last few points of damage. It doesn’t really seem to matter if your Aggro, Midrange, or Control, The Black Knight is a game winning tech card in the current meta. 
      Deck to Watch
      The success of Midrange Paladin can be attributed to the fact that it is both fast enough to go underneath the current Control decks and defensive enough to go over the top of the current Aggro decks. Any other deck which is capable of accomplishing this same feat would also be very well positioned, which makes me believe that Nostam's Midrange Hunter is poised to take off.
      2x Alleycat 2x Hungry Crab 2x Tracking 2x Crackling Razormaw 2x Golakka Crawler 2x Kindly Grandmother 2x Animal Companion 2x Bearshark 2x Eaglehorn Bow 2x Kill Command 2x Houndmaster 1x Nesting Roc 2x Tundra Rhino 1x Deathstalker Rexxar 2x Savannah Highmane 2x Bonemare This deck has all the tools it needs to blast its way through Jade Druid with the proper draw. Bearshark curves amazingly into Houndmaster, and Bonemare is like a Houndmaster on steroids. It runs a healthy curve of one and two drops to contest the board early, and pack all four crabs so it can steal some free wins off of Aggro decks. Deathstalker Rexxar seems at his absolute best in this style of deck, as he provides the deck with the card draw engine it needs to not run out of steam against controlling decks.
      I still think the list has a bit of room to improve. Hunter is currently the least played class in the entire meta which also means it is the least tested. I’m not sure that double Tundra Rhino shines in this list without Deathstalker Rexxar already in play. The deck also might be in need one more tool to outvalue opposing Midrange decks in the mid to late game, as it doesn’t pack many tools to catch up once it’s fallen behind.
      Conclusion
      Our goal with this report was to get you up to speed on the current trends in the meta and to provide you with the analysis you’ll need to stay ahead of the competition. As this was our first meta report for Hearthstone we would love to hear your feedback on what you felt worked or what you thought might have been missing. Please feel free to tell us in the comments what you found to be helpful and if there if there is anything you’d like to see in the next meta report!
      Until next time,
