Really curious about how popular will dude paladin will become. Probably will see other support for this deck. I kinda think it's kinda slow, BUT i will happily allow people to surprise me. SO do it, guys.
Garbage on it's own unless we get another dude generator somewhere between Vinecleaver and Muster. Even then imagine casting Stand Against Darkness and this for a 10-mana two-card combo that creates a mere 5 3/3 taunts. Then look at UI and uninstall.
not really playing a taunt minion is much harder than playing silver hand recruits..
as one that played a lot of silver hand paladin in wild ATM I can ASSURE you that this card will be played in wild as additional quarter masters (you can constantly summon a bunch of recruits every turn in wild)
it's a strong card the question is if we already have/need more SHR cards in standard for this to work.
It might be, but Quartermaster destroys this card. You need 3 dudes on the board to get decent value from this, and the 5-slot is so crowded in that deck Stand Against Darkness is usually 1-of. If dude paladin goes in a slower, more grindy direction cutting some earlygame power, this might find a place.
honestly will either be a hit or a miss, Im optimistic about this combined with Steward of Darkshire. Getting it on 2 is fine, but anything 3 recruits or more is a huge swing on curve, forcing opponents to kill them instead of going face.
