Grand Tournament: Dragon Warrior and Dragon Paladin
Hello everyone. The Grand Tournament is right around the corner and I’m very excited. From my point of view, The Grand Tournament is an amazing set and I can’t wait to finally play with all the new sweet cards. I love playing control decks, and Dragons are the only tribal that supports control decks. Therefore I’m thrilled when it comes to the new Dragon cards, because I think they are exactly what Dragon decks were lacking and therefore they will help building better Dragon decks.
In this article I will first of all analyze the new neutral dragons and tell you how good they are. Then I will show one Warrior and Paladin Dragon list and explain you the reasoning behind my card choices.
I played a lot of Paladin and Warrior Dragon for the last several months (Dragon Paladin is a deck I used for the more casual ranks at the beginning of each season, so until Rank 5-3, while the Dragon Warrior was still good enough for Legend 500-200), therefore I think I’m the perfect guy to tell you with what list you should start playing, once the new expansion rolls out, if you liked either of these two archetypes.
It is also important, that I don’t claim that the lists I show you are perfect ones, some slots will of course change when I finally can play with the new cards. But they are an excellent starting point, when the new set comes out. The theory behind games was always a part I highly enjoyed and was very good at, ranging from Magic the Gathering to Chess.
Also note that I won’t cover other possible Dragon archetypes, because I simply never played them a lot to have enough insight and be sure they are good with the new set.
