*Updated for the new balance changes on May 18*
Hey everyone! My name is Funki Monki and all I do is create meta breaking (hopefully) off meta decks! Today I'm bringing you a community favorite - Libram Paladin! I've seen this deck being played in so many different ways, but nothing seems to be working for people so I went back to the drawing board and refined and refined the archetype until I ended up with this list! This list has brought me to Diamond 6 with a 62% WR (and then I started meme-ing with other decks).
A few points I wanted to mention while building/playing this archetype:
- going Pure Paladin is not good simply because you lose out on too many good neutrals like Wild Pyromancer, Acidic Swamp Ooze, Novice Engineer and your win conditions of Exotic Mountseller and Replicat-o-tron. Pure Paladin doesn't have enough win conditions without these.
- Cycling cards are crucial, like Novice Engineer, Hand of A'dal, Call to Adventure. Because this deck is very combo oriented (need to draw BOTH your librams AND your discounters, your board clears are 2+ card combos of Libram of Justice and Consecration/Wild Pyromancer) you need to be able to draw your combo pieces.
- Be VERY sparing with your board clears and only use them when absolutely necessary. There is TONS of healing in this deck so take a few hits to the face and make your opponent over commit. Your hard board clear of Libram of Justice + Wild Pyromancer or Consecration is hard to come by and probably won't draw that 2 card combo again for awhile.
I hope you like this deck and, as always, if you have any questions or have a suggestion please comment below (I respond to all comments)!
