The New Standard: Control Paladin
I am very excited for this month. While I play (and have played) a lot of different decks on this series, I have never touched Control Paladin. That is a real shame and something I aim to fix this time around. This deck is something I have wanted to build for a loooong time but have just never had the chance to do so. The meta shifts over the past half year have not been kind to slow control decks, and that goes double for decks that focus solely on healing (looking at you Priest). Every good deck in the game has strong burst at their disposal. As a result, in order to make a strong control deck you need to be able to control the board but have enough healing where you aren’t going to die once you stabilize. That is not an easy medium to reach, but I do believe Paladin has the tools to do it. This is an experiment I have wanted to try for months and with the nerfs now in place there is no better time to try.
