General Comments

A solid card for Secret-based Paladin decks, Autodefense Matrix compares favorably to Noble Sacrifice if the average Attack of your minions is 2 or greater. Another reason to reason to favor Autodefense Matrix over Noble Sacrifice is that works a bit better in combination with Redemption, as the 2/1 created by Noble Sacrifice will not be resummoned by Redemption.


Constructed Play

Autodefense Matrix is one of the better Paladin Secrets, but it is still not powerful enough to be played in constructed decks which are not built around cards like Mysterious Challenger and Bellringer Sentry. Avoid playing Paladin Secrets in your constructed decks unless it is the primary theme of your deck.



Paladin Secrets rarely represent an entire card's worth of value, and should rarely be picked in the Arena. Any minion with reasonable stats will offer you more board presence than Autodefense Matrix, which means that there will be very few buckets where Autodefense Matrix is the correct pick.
