Libram Paladin Deck Strategy
During the early game, your aim is to get out one of your cheap minions likeor and follow it up with a buff from , , or to secure your position on the board. If you are able to sucessfully land a buff, you can then comfortably trade into any opposing minions to further solidify your position.
Going into the mid game, there are various lines you can take depending on the state of the game. If your opponent is keeping up with you on board,can be used to draw buffs for immediate use on your minions and can be used to immediately trade into minions to keep your opponent's board down. Alternatively, if your opponent is more passive, you can use to bolster your hand and give yourself more options for future turns.
After reaching 5 Mana, you should try to get anys into play when it is safe to do so, further discounting you Librams and giving you the ability the generate much more tempo going forward. This will also guarentee your ability to use any s you may have freely between your minions.
Should you begin to lose control of the board at any point, the deck has a range of tools available to help swing things back in your favour. Firstly,s can be incorporated into any turn to provide you with additional minions to trade with and manipulate the board into your favour. Broomstick turns can work particularly well with s, allowing you to use your Librams on each minion you plan to trade off, having them immediately return to your hand for reuse. Secondly, for particularly wide boards, can be particularly useful if you are able to buff his attack, providing solid AoE damage. Lastly, incase of emergencys, can be used to take down huge threats, either by rushing him in immediately or allowing your weaker minions to trade into their threats. However, this comes at the price of weakening your own board in the process.
To close out games, the deck has no strict win condition other than tempo. The constant pressure can last as long as most control decks, withbeing able to refill your hand for that late game push, allowing you eventually take down your opponent when they fail to keep up.
Against Aggro, you should focus entirely on controlling the board. Divine Shields frommake it significantly easier to value trade and give you extremely sticky targets. Games will typically end when you are able to get your s into play as the combined healing and huge Taunt minions is far too much for Aggro decks to handle.
Against Control, you should be prepared for a long game right from the start.s will provide you with almost limitless value as they force your opponent to respect any minion you put on board. With this in mind, getting down to increase the number of Librams you have in circulation is incredibly useful. To end the game, you will have to grind down your opponent's resources, either by forcing them to waste removal on your buffed Silver Hand Recruits, or from dealing with over-buffed minions from once you have played .
