I love GvG. It skyrocketed paladin from a weak class to a top tier one. Here is the deck that brought me, this morning, to legend, with a guide! Enjoy, and do not forget to upvote or post commentaries to ask questions or anything. =)
How do you feel does this deck work against huntard and zoo? As it's hard for me to stop the early undertaker as I Run 2 zombie chows and have a pretty big problem if i don't have them in my opening hand.
Lay on Hands is indeed my only draw, but I extremely rarely am in a topdecking situation. I do, however, struggle to get the cards I want sometimes, but I did not figure out how to add a great draw mechanic working with this deck.
it's 50/50 against huntard, having shielded minibot and muster for battle is kinda an autowin, it's obviously a tough matchup but absolutely no deck gets an easy win against this OP class. As for zoo, it's an incredibly great matchup, I'm about 90/10 against them. You might want to check the page of the deck, where I tried to write some thoughts on each matchup, and the card of the deck. :)
Any reason Holy Light was chosen over Seal of Light? I feel like SoL would allow more flexibility and decent removal considering Paladins almost always have a weapon now with Light's Justice / Truesilver Champion.
Holy light can heal minions too, I think seal would be a lot better if it healed at the end of the turn or something, When i was using it a lot of the time i ended up clearing a minion when i was at full health and therefore i ended up not getting any heals at all. At least holy light can do something useful when you are on full health
You can indeed replace Holy light by Seal of Light, but I was meeting so many hunters that a second holy light happened to be better, for these two extra hp given. Two HP can change everything against a huntard. Warchida also stated a less obvious reason, that against control you may use this card to heal up your cards, which you can't with Seal of Light. You can choose one or another, there is no real better option, it depends of what you face. :)
