Weekly Legends: Flood Paladin!
Dare to be different guys and girls. Dare. To. Be. Different. That is a very important lesson in life (that has largely shaped the course of my existence) and it is a very important lesson in Hearthstone. You never want to go with the flow just because someone is telling you too (or because they are playing the “best deck”). Rather, forge your own path and understand that you need to be your own person in this world. This week’s deck is a good reflection of that, showing what can happen when you take a common idea and make it into your own. I know, a lot of inspiration for a Monday, but honestly, this deck deserves it.
Today we take a look at my favorite class, Paladin. Not as it is today, but as it once was. Today’s article is not going to focus on some aggro, secret or egg deck. No, this is a nod the classic midrange lists, but has a brand new twist. So, the biggest question is, what’s going on here? We have a half midrange deck that also runs some big finishers as well as some more aggressive cards. It seems like a very strange take on what was once classic Paladin midrange, and that’s exactly what it is. However, instead of being worse for wear, the changes really help make the deck special. There are many cards in this deck that do not normally fit into decks together, and there are also many play in ways you wouldn’t normally expect. The most important ones will be outlined below.
