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.

      If you're not a fan of playing huge Legendary minions every turn, then you may need to rethink your approach to Hearthstone.
       
      The Hearthstone team is on a roll with Tavern Brawls! After Top 2, one of the most well-received Tavern Brawls in recent memory, this week's Tavern Brawl is titled  "Cloneball!".
       

       
      Each player's deck is filled with four copies of random Legendary minions, including minions from the Wild format. Players will also receive a number of copies of "Offensive Play", a card which reduces the cost of your next Legendary minion by 3 Mana, as well as all other copies of that same Legendary in your hand:
       

       
      Though it's difficult to game plan for a specific strategy as the Legendary minions you receive appear to be random, I thought it was pretty sweet to play Loatheb into Onyxia into Onyxia into Onyxia. Slamming huge Legendary minions onto the battlefield is one of the most fun things to do in all of Hearthstone, and you'll get to do it again and again in this week's brawl!
      As is true with most brawls where the class cards aren't incredibly important, Warlock is strong by virtue of Life Tap. However, Paladin has some of the strongest Legendary minions in the history of the Hearthstone, so you could also try to high-roll a deck full of Tirion Fordrings and Wickerflame Burnbristles.

      The targeted cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms, Dark Pact, Crystal Core and Naga Sea Witch.
      The community's prayers have been answered as nerfs for six problematic cards have been announced.
      UPDATE - The nerfs went live earlier today. You can disenchant the affected cards and get full dust value until June 5, 2018.
      Four of these cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms and Naga Sea Witch. Even though there were a lot of interesting suggestions as to how these cards could be handled, Team 5 chose the simplest, yet elegant, way to weaken them: increase their mana cost. The first three cards will have their mana cost increased by 1, whereas Naga Sea Witch will jump to an extreme 8 mana!
      Dark Pact will now restore 4 health to your hero, instead of 8. Lastly, Crystal Core will undergo a second nerf in its history: it will now produce 4/4 minions. Do you think it will survive even its second nerf like Unleash the Hounds or Sylvanas Windrunner did?
      Some of the cards that we know the team was considering changing, but will remain unscathed for now are Sunkeeper Tarim, Doomguard, Bloodreaver Gul'dan and Baku Paladin Hero Power.
      These changes will take effect after the end of the HCT playoffs at the end of May.
      Daxxarri
      In an update that will arrive some time after the HCT Playoffs are complete, we will be making balance changes to the following cards:
      Naga Sea Witch – Will cost 8 mana. (Up from 5)
      In update 9.1, we introduced a rule change to increase the consistency of Hearthstone game mechanics. The change affected precisely when Naga Sea Witch’s cost change was applied to cards. This allowed it to be combined with the cost reduction effects on giants, and as a result, it became fairly easy to reduce their mana cost to 0.
       
      We think Hearthstone is better all around when interactions are consistent, and we like the fact that a Naga Sea Witch giants deck archetype exists. That said, we also understand that, with its current functionality, this deck can generate early board states that are unreasonable for most classes to deal with. By increasing the cost of Naga Sea Witch to 8 mana, the deck’s concept remains intact, but the combo is delayed until later in a match when more decks are likely to have the tools to handle the arrival of so many giants.

      Spiteful Summoner – Will cost 7 mana. (Up from 6)
      After set rotation arrived with the Year of the Raven, Spiteful Summoner became more powerful and consistent when used in decks containing 10 mana cost spells. This is because the pool of 10 mana cost minions in Standard is smaller, so players could more reliably count on getting a powerful minion from Spiteful Summoner’s effect. Even considering the deckbuilding sacrifices that an effective Spiteful Summoner deck requires, we think that increasing the card’s mana cost to 7 is more in line with the powerful outcomes that are possible when it’s used alongside cards like Ultimate Infestation.

      Dark Pact – Will restore 4 Health. (Down from 8)
      There are two aspects of Dark Pact that make it powerful. At a cost of 1 mana, it’s easily used alongside cards like Carnivorous Cube, Possessed Lackey, and Spiritsinger Umbra for big combo turns. It also gives Warlocks enough healing potential so that aggressively using Lifetap and playing cards like Kobold Librarian and Hellfire feel less consequential. We left Dark Pact’s cost intact so it can still be used as part of interesting combos, but lessened the healing it provides so Warlocks will need to more carefully consider how much damage they take over the course of a match.

      Possessed Lackey – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      Some of the card combos involving Possessed Lackey present situations that are too difficult to deal with in the early-to-mid stages of the game. Increasing its mana cost to 6 delays some of those powerful card combos to turns that are easier for opposing decks to overcome.

      Call to Arms – Will cost 5 mana. (Up from 4)
      Currently, there are three popular Paladin decks: Even Paladin, Murloc Paladin, and Odd Paladin. Among the three decks, Even Paladin and Murloc Paladin have consistently been the most powerful two archetypes over the first few weeks since the release of The Witchwood. Call to Arms moving to 5 mana restricts it from being used in Even decks and reduces its power somewhat when used in Murloc and other Paladin decks.
      We expect that players will experiment with Call to Arms at 5 mana in Odd Paladin decks, but we don’t expect this card to have much of an impact. This is because Odd Paladin can’t access 2 mana minions (meaning Call to Arms could only ever summon three 1 mana minions if played in that deck).

      Note: As a result of this change, we are adjusting the “Greymane’s Alliance” deck recipe. It will now have two copies of Saronite Chain Gang in place of Call to Arms.
      The Caverns Below – The quest reward, Crystal Core, will read: For the rest of the game, your minions are 4/4. (Down from 5/5)
      The Quest Rogue deck uses a strategy that’s strong against slow, control-heavy and fatigue decks, but struggles against most other deck archetypes. There’s a fine line between being powerful against very slow decks and being powerful versus virtually all non-aggressive strategies. By changing the quest reward to make the resulting minions 4/4 instead of 5/5, Quest Rogue should still be a reasonable option versus slow, extreme late-game decks, but offer a less polarized matchup with more moderate control decks.

      (source) Are you happy with these changes? Do you think some cards will still be playable or are all six cards useless now? What's your opinion on the unchanged cards?
