Holy Paladin Deck Strategy

Holy Paladin largely relies on playing out its minions to contest the board and slow down the game. If things get out of control, there is a range of tools like Wild Pyromancer, City Tax, and Equality as needed. Through the natural tempo-based gameplay of the deck, most opponents can be adequately pressured. However, if things go late, Lightforged Cariel can be used to give a continuous stream of buffs to minions in hand through the use of Blessing of Queens to really ramp up the pressure. Eventually defeating opponents through sheer pressure or direct damage from a buffed up Mr. Smite.

Against Aggro, you should focus entirely on keeping the board under control, taking efficient trades wherever possible. If your opponent commits to a single large minion, such as those buffed by Vile Library or Righteous Defense, often sticking a single large buff like The Garden's Grace is enough to tip the balance of the game in your favour, but if things go late, the damage reduction of Lightforged Cariel in addition to a 2-damage weapon swing each turn will almost always be enough to overpower any Aggro deck.

Against Control, you should prioritise killing your opponent in one big turn. While small amounts of damage can be achieved with your minions, you should try to get Lightforged Cariel in play as soon as possible to take full advantage of Blessing of Queens. Once Cariel is online, you should try to set up a situation where Mr. Smite is your only minion in hand so that it can be continually buffed each turn in order to eventually OTK your opponent.
