[Archived] S8 Hearthstone Basic Paladin Deck

Guest ArmaGetItOn

Awesome starter deck man, thanks! I came across this on google and put it together. I just started playing today and absolutely obliterated a few players that played several legendary cards. The deck really had an answer to everything those players did.

Honestly, I've had very good and very bad experiences with this deck. It's very prone to unlucky streaks, where you die after 5 turns, and your hands full of 5+ mana cards... Kind of lacks early game presence vs aggro builds.

Great to hear. Keep it up!

Well, in great part that is due to the Basic nature of the deck. Your card choices are really very limited. Basic Paladins are very strong on turn 4 and after, but lack good cards to play before then, so if it can happen that you lose if you get obliterated in the starting turns. Just mulligan for your 2-3 drops, and make use of Hand of Protection to allow your minions to survive early trades. Well, that's the plan, anyway :)

I've heard the term mulligan used in Hearthstone a few time, but don't understand it.  Can you explain, please?

It means to replace, particularly in the case of replacing starting hand cards. We have a glossary of Hearthstone terms here, you should check it out.

I've been trying to play this deck or variations of it for a week now and all I can say is it sucks. the best I can do with it is hold them off for about 15 turns before they just sledgehammer me. I call this deck the " slow death" build because that's all it is. I can never seem to get more than 2 minions on the board before they're killed and I'm being hit again. and I can hear people saying " horrible player" but I know I'm not that bad. this deck plays out the same every time for me: no early game, weak mid game, overwhelmed early in the end game and killed.

Keep in mind, that this is a completely basic deck for players that has no access to other higher value cards. If you get matched up against a legendary deck or whatsoever, of course this deck has almost no chance.

I don't agree with excluding the last two paladin-specific cards. Good strategy with taunt can protect the minion it is used on, and like the explanation with Stormplike Commando it can also create a minion fearsome enough for the opponent to need to sacrifice a minion to destroy it. Lastly, it can also be used to create a sacrifice in order to destroy a much larger minion. There's a lot you can do with that card and it only costs 1 mana for a minion to permanently have 3 more attack creating a minion who can take down an enemy minion worth much more mana. The card healing 6 hp for 2 mana is also a good deal, In close-games that can give you another turn in which you can deal the fatal attack to your opponent before he can deal the last strike with a large minion summoned in the late game or its a good overall boost to help stall for time while you destroy your opponents minions or deal the last blow.

I've been playing with this deck, and as an almost complete noob (I've played Magic: TG a bit, but am terrible at it) have gone 7 for 9 in ranked thus far. Before doing that, following the other guides here, I opened up all the basic cards, saved most of my gold (at 730 now), and am doing my best to learn and memorize the cards. That's the thank you part.

 

Here's the question:

 

I picked up an Aldor Peacekeeper and put it in this deck in place of a Frostwolf Overlord. I like it so much, I made another and replaced the second Frostwolf Overlord. Was that a bad choice for replacement?

 

Thanks in advance.

I think it was a good choice. The Aldor Peacekeeper is a great card and it'll work great with your minions.

The engineer doesn't make any sense. Paladin can already create a 1/1 for 2 and a 0 net card loss with his ability. All this does is take away a choice.

Great deck.

 

I've decided to master one hero, and Pally it was. Tried a few decks made available online and this has given me the most success. I personally prefer control over the aggro style of play, but don't have the cards yet for beyond this basic control deck. Played 100s of games with this deck (in the various modes) and I think I'm becoming quite familiar with the 15 unique cards in this deck and how to instinctively play with whats in front of me.

 

In rank play mode, though, I've only made it to rank 17 (and struggling to make it past), though I still have a good hit rate in casual play mode.

 

What is the highest rank a deck like this can take somebody to before it becomes absolutely necessary to go for one of the more expensive paladin control decks?

 

Thanks again.

This deck has served me well and is still my favourite basic control deck. It is well rounded with a weapon, healing, buffing, big hitters and great synergy (turns out to suite me very well). I've been looking, though, to graduate to the next Paladin control deck on Icy Veins (to move further up the ranks), but unfortunately I don't yet have the budget for all the required cards (given there is no low-budget control, the next being a mid-budget control).

 

I have collected some cards beyond basic cards (and dust) from arena and daily challenge play, so was looking how to rather incrementally improve my current basic deck BUT without changing the well crafted synergy of it.

 

So what I did was study the mid-budget control deck for better cards (that I could craft or already have) to substitute into this basic one without changing much of the functions or synergy (because they work so well for me).

 

Below is the original Icy Veins basic control Paladin deck with my changes (so far) in brackets:

 

2x Hand of Protection

2x Novice Engineer

2x Acidic Swamp Ooze

2x Shattered Sun Cleric

2x Razorfen Hunter (2x Harvest Golem -- similar to Razorfen, but better second minion generated and at death. Mana curve maintained)

2x Truesilver Champion

2x Consecration

2x Chillwind Yeti (2x Twilight Drake -- Only need 4 cards in hand for this to function exactly like the Yeti. With more cards in hand, which happens often enough, this becomes an even better card. Mana curve maintained)

2x Sen'jin Shieldmasta

2x Hammer of Wrath

2x Blessing of Kings

2x Stormpike Commando

2x Frostwolf Warlord (2x Defender of Argus -- the function changes from buffing itself to buffing minions to side with taunt. Cost moved from 5-drop to 4-drop card).

2x Guardian of Kings

2x Stormwind Champion

 

I welcome any feedback on these changes or suggestions for more changes that enhances the existing deck without changing too much of the synergy and functionality. 

 

If possible, it would be nice if such suggestions could be included on the basic deck pages -- cards beyond basic that can be substituted in when/if you get them, but don't change the synergy or functionality. Creates a kind of wishlist of cards to get to keep beefing up deck.

 

Thanks again to this site and its authors for the great resource.

I agree with this.  This feels like a better early game helper than the divine shield spell and they both cost one mana.  The divine shield is great, but usually better for mid-late game and this deck lacks in the early game.  However, casting +3 on an early champ or even one of your recruits is viable.  Sure the recruit is likely to die next turn, but its usually a good trade off as the recruit can take out most early-mid game threat that are worth more than 1 mana.  Also, your opponent is forced to deal with him next turn if he doesn't die.  And even if you don't need it early game, you can use it later to take a mid game champ to end game level.  It just feels like a far more versatile card than divine shield.

 

Not sure i agree on the other half of the post about the 2 mana pally card that heals 6.  Its nice, but looses card advantage and does essentially the same thing is the Guardian of Kings champ with no champ to back it up.  The creator of the deck has it right here.

 

I also don't agree with Stormpike Commando.  He's expensive for what he provides and since he's higher in mana cost, he can only handle early game threats in mid to late game play so its too late.  Id rather have another 5 mana champ i can count on or a 2-3 mana champ that would help my early game.  Maybe the Murloc with charge?  Not sure as I've used a different champ not from the basic set to fill this slot currently.

 

Overall, not a bad deck.  Just needs a bit more early game presence beyond free recruits.

This is because the Engineer used to be 1/2, but was nerfed. Unfortunately Icy Veins doesn't really update their guides, they just rubber stamp "approved for [latest season]" without looking at changes.

Hey, jerodast

The non-basic decks were updated with every season and the next update will be done with the release of the final Naxxramas wing. The basic decks have been reviewed and deemed valid for Season 4 as the changelog states.

As for Novice Engineer, I am fairly certain that you are familiar with the concept of thinning your deck and its benefits on the basic level where the card pool is extremely limited, especially if you are playing Hearthstone since the Novice Engineer nerf. 

Regardless, should you have a constructive suggestion or a question about a specific deck or a card in this case, we will be glad to help you out / consider your input.

Kind regards,

Poyo

I too noticed, in game, that the engineer doesn't seem to serve much of a function over the silver hand recruit since it is the same 1/1 for one mana and both nets a 0 card change. I swapped mine for a pair of 2/1 murdocs, which seem to work nicely with divine shield. I've since opened a couple packs though, and a basic player who has picked up a few new cards could easily replace this with their first decent low level finds or the 2/1 silencing owl.

 

If we're only including bare basics though, the 2/1 murdoc, 1/2 taunt footman, or something along those lines (person preference matters more than anything here) works well. I personally prefer one cost cards to two cost cards, as the pally's hero spell (somewhat) seems to fill that void.

Thanks for posting this deck, it really works out!

 

One question, though: what do you think about swapping at lest one sun cleric with a raid leader?

      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:

      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!
