Hi I'm a long time hearthstone player who plays every once in a while. Used to play alot back when shadow of naxramas and GvG was released but stopped after hitting legend with zoolock once. Returned to hearthstone last year and i have been playing alot since then. When schoolmance got released i hit legend pretty easily with Pure Pala. In the first season of Darkmoon Faire i was able to reach Diamond 1with this Deck but im sure one can easily hit Legend with it.

Why Pure Paladin?
The reason why i'd recommend Pure Paladin to Players who are trying to reach Legend for the first time is pretty simple. This deck is extremly consistent and very easy to play. You always want to play with the curve get a good amount of board pressure/aggro. In this guide i'll try to show you the few things one needs to keep in mind when playing this deck.
Why is Paladin so strong atm?
So in order to be able to play this deck one should understand why this deck is strong. In my opinion i'd say it's the abality to almost always play on curve, get strong minions on the board and be almost unkillable due to the insane amount of good heal you have in this deck. The cards that make all this work are the Libram cards and the cards that require to have no neutral cards in the deck(such as Aldor Attendant , Aldor Truthseeker , Libram of Hope , High Exarch Yrel and so on) . These cards give the deck extreme high survivabilty and value and Lady Liadrin just amplifys all of that. Another reason why this deck is so strong is that it has good early drops, good mid game drops and good Late game drops.
Mulligan is like with every deck incredibly Important in order to win a game. I think the mulligan is pretty straight forward but ill shortly explain what cards you want to go for and why anyway.
Cards You ALWAYS keep.
There are three cards you wanna keep early on
You always keep this card. its a 1/3 that makes your libram cards cheaper by for the rest of the game and can give you some good board pressure, even more so if you have a Libram of Wisdom or a Hand of A'dal
This one should be pretty self explenatory why you'd wanna keep this. you get 2 1 drops for 0 mana. thats some sick value right there.
In my opinion this is one of the best 2 drop minions in the game. It gives you a really nice amount of board pressure early on since it has reborn.
Cards you can consider keeping
To be honest there are alot of good turn 2 or 3 cards for pala but you dont always want to keep them. Often enough you'll find yourself with a Hand of A'dal in your hand and most likely wont be able to play it untli turn 4 and by then you might have to play another card to keep the board under Controll such as Lightforged Zealot or Consicration. There are lots of examples but ill write up a short list of what you want to keep when.
Keep if you have good early minions that can be buffed By this card.
Strong turn 3 card, keep if you have good turn 2 or 1 or both
Keep if you have low drops and obviously keep if you have Aldor Attendant
Very Situational, I almost never Keep this card. I only keep it if i have good turn 1 AND turn 2 drops and ONLY if im playing against aggro decks, but even then not always the best choice.
I sadly dont have to possibility of making videos since my PC is literally a toaster and i can only play on my phone. Ill try to find some good guides, maybe i can even find some videos with the exact same Decklist.
