Aggro Paladin Deck List Guide

Last updated on Dec 08, 2017 at 18:40 by Pesty 27 comments

Table of Contents

Aggro Paladin is an old archetype that has fallen in and out of the meta game since the beginning of Hearthstone. It aims to play as fast and aggressively as possible to get an empty hand so that it can be quickly refilled using Divine Favor. The initial aggression is usually manageable for most decks, however second round cards from Divine Favor is often incredibly potent after opponents have wasted most of their removal tools on the initial onslaught.

There are some core minions played in most Aggro Paladin decks such as Hydrologist and Righteous Protector, however there are multiple approaches that can be taken to Aggro Paladin and the minions used play a large role in that. Some variants prefer all out aggression by using many charge minions in combination with spells like Blessing of Might while others prefer slightly slower and more resilient minions with Divine Shields to take advantage of Blessing of Kings. Additionally, strategies using Murlocs are also very powerful, taking advantage of the early board presence from Vilefin Inquisitor.

Below, you will find link to our deck lists for Aggro Paladin, starting with our featured deck, which we consider the most common variant.

Murloc Aggro Paladin Deck is an Aggro Paladin variant that takes advantage of Murloc synergies. It is comprised almost entirely of Murlocs to help solidify strong openers with buffs from cards like Murloc Warleader and Gentle Megasaur. It also features Finja, the Flying Star to add a significant board presence for games that go beyond the mid-game.

Cocosasa's Aggro Paladin Deck was used by Cocosasa to achieve rank 1 Legend on the Asia server. It takes advantage of cards that have fallen out of favor like Knife Juggler and Dire Wolf Alpha by flooding the board with cheap minions.

Ender's Murloc Aggro Paladin Deck is a variant used by Ender to reach rank 4 Legend in early December 2017. It takes advantage of powerful tools like Call to Arms and Val'anyr for relentless aggression to overwhelm opponents.

Budget Aggro Paladin Deck is a cheap version of Aggro Paladin. It is based off of a full budget Aggro Paladin variant, however it cuts some of the more expensive minions to be more accessible for players with a smaller collection of cards.

It also features Pirate synergies to help dominate the early game and uses powerful Windfury effects from Grook Fu Master and Corpsetaker to deal huge amounts of damage to opponents.is a cheap version of Aggro Paladin. It was created and used by SkyWalker at high Legend ranks.

1. Aim of the Deck

Aggro Paladin aims to get onto the board as fast as possible to start pressuring opponents. Despite being a very aggressive archetype, it is important to make value trades to maintain board control for as long as possible as there are very few direct damage options available for Paladins. However, as opponents will be slowly able to regain board control, it is important to not make too many trades in order enough damage can be achieved to kill opponents before board control is lost.

2. Strengths and Weaknesses

Aggro Paladin uses many resilient minions, such as those with Divine Shields, which makes it particularly strong at fighting for early board control against other Aggro decks.

As Aggro Paladin relies almost purely on repeated minion damage to kill opponents , there is no hard limit on the amount of damage possible, which greatly decreases the value of opponent's healing effects. Conversely, the dependency on minion damage also makes Aggro Paladin particularly weak against Taunt minions and board clear effects which can slow down the aggression, often to a point that there is not enough damage available to finish the game.

3. Key Cards and Crafting

Divine Favor is an essential card for Aggro Paladin, the card draw effect has excellent synergy with the large number of cheap minions played and is consistently used across all Aggro Paladin variants.

Patches the Pirate and Finja, the Flying Star are two powerful Legendary minions used within Aggro Paladin, depending on how a variant is built either one or bother of these minions is used.

In Murloc variants, Murloc Warleader, Vilefin Inquisitor, and Gentle Megasaur are all essential key Epic cards that are all essential to success. In non-Murloc variants Bittertide Hydra is a very powerful option to add a huge boost in power to finish off opponents in the mid-game.
