3. Comments On The Variation

This Aggro Paladin variant is inspired by the popularity of Prince Keleseth Tempo Rogue decks. It follows a similar opening strategy of aiming to play Prince Keleseth as soon as possible to boost the strength of all minions remaining in the deck and using powerful Pirate synergies to help secure the board.

Many cheap Divine Shield effects like Argent Squire and Righteous Protector in addition to Wickerflame Burnbristle and Corpsetaker can be used to efficiently control the board with the help of attack buffs from Acherus Veteran, Rallying Blade, and Blessing of Kings. It is important to take good trades when they are available as this deck is heavily reliant on minion damage to kill opponents. However, this is still an Aggro deck and in situations where opposing minions pose no threat or they would make a trade for you, it is much more beneficial to attack your opponent directly to reduce the number of turns it takes to kill them.

One of the most notable addition to the deck is Grook Fu Master. While the minion can be quite underwhelming in a vacuum, its primary purpose is to provide the Windfury effect for the Corpsetakers in the deck while fitting into the Mana curve of the deck. Where possible you should aim to attack your opponent directly with your Windfury minions, especially if they can be paired with Acherus Veteran or Blessing of Kings. If you are able to connect with your opponent, the huge amount of damage is able to rapidly accelerate the speed that you are able to win games.

3.1. Strengths and Weaknesses

This variant is very powerful and is excellent at competing against other Aggro decks due to the cheap Divine Shield minions present. While it is extremely powerful under the effect of Prince Keleseth, it is still has other strong synergies and is able to perform to a high standard without it. This variant is weak against decks that are able to take away board control, such as those with many board clear effects as most of the damage in the deck comes from minions, it is almost impossible to win without board control.

3.2. Quick Mulligan Guide

This mulligan for this deck is very straightforward as you should mulligan aggressively for Prince Keleseth every game. Even if you are unsuccessful, the sheer number of cheap minions in the deck make it almost impossible to have a poor opening hand. If you already have Prince Keleseth in hand, you should mulligan to gain the strongest curve possible, aiming for Argent Squire and Righteous Protector for Turn 1 and Southsea Captain for Turn 3.
