    Yeah that's all you can say now.

    Oh and checked your secret paladin deck, using Consecration and Equality in an aggro deck with 2x Divine Favor says everything about you, master deckbuilder.

    Are you dumb or what? You come here with this stupid comment neglecting my skill and decks viability "Probably you found some period in the meta where this was good and got lucky? I can't see a way to win the most popular matchups right now. This is very weak against board clears." And you expect me to answer you differently? That's why I started with "Probably you are just a bad player", You have your assumption, I have mine.

    Of course I got freaking lucky, it has nothing to do with my skill or deck or the meta I was in, of course I was lucky, got lucky 1st day of January playing against best HS players and got to legend cause of luck. What else can it be?

    And of course 74% winrate in the title represents the winrate of the the run I had 1st of January (32-11), when I reached legend with this deck. Pro's do the same, they post winrates of their runs on twitter. But of course it is a clickbait just like the rest of decks here too, only I reached that winrate playing against the best and not against some rank 15 scrubs. Only stupid will believe a deck can have 74% winrate, that's why I even posted true winrates here and I guess you missed that 60% on Hunter (my 15-6) and 65% on priest (my 5-2), which represents the majority of meta. But you know what? Probably I should have reached legend 31 of January going against scrubs, 85% winrate would be much more impressive clickbait.

    And on what ranks do you see control mage and odd warrior? On high ranks? Sorry to break it to you, but I'm still top 25 with this deck (probably I'm just lucky) and all you see in top legend are hunters, priest and paladins. Control mage is only played in dumpster ranks and Odd Warrior is very rare here.

    "This is very weak against board clears" is another stupid comment. A deck with Redemption, all the divine shield minions, with BoK and Fungalmancer to play around boardclears? With Call to Arms to refill after boardclear? You sure this deck is bad against board clears or maybe you are just bad, cause you can't play around them and overcommiting? Compared to all other aggro decks this is one of the best decks against board clears.

    I watched lots of VODs of people playing this deck and realized that many of them can't even play it right. Same people come here and make these stupid statements later on.

    Hey. Glad you had success. yeah the deck might seem like a simple aggro deck, but there is a lot of depth to it. Yeah Spellbreaker is a good tech if you are meeting certain matchups often.

    Probably you are just a bad player. I'm still sitting in top 25 with this deck. Most popular matchups? It beats hunters and priests, there is a reason HSReplay has this deck as one of the best performing decks currently. Weak to boardclears? With Redemption and all the divine shield minions? With BoK and Fungalmancer to play around boardclears? With Call to Arms to refill after boardclear?

    Glad you are having fun.

    Call to Arms is very important, it is a huge tempo card so it is quite important to have it on turn 5, That's why there is no way you should cut it even 1 of them, no matter how effective the 2nd one is. I would look at Argent Squire for Spellbreaker if you are meeting lots of decks that Spellbreaker can be good at.

    Thanks for kind words. Yeah Spellbreaker is the number 1 card I want to include in the deck for sure. I just don't know what to remove for it, I guess Argent Squire is the best option, although you are making Corpsetaker and Call to Arms consistency a little bit worse. Can't remove 1 Bellringer Sentry, cause you will need to remove secrets then, which makes no sense. Can't remove 1x Blessing of Kings, cause it is just too good with Corpsetaker. And I think you got to have 1x Fungalmancer for pressure and to play around AoE like Explosive Trap, Rexxar and Consecration.

    The reason I did not include it in initial build is because I met too many hunters and Spellbreaker doesn't do much against hunters, but lately there are lots of Cubelocks< Even and OTK Paladins with Steed and that is definitely number 1 reason why you should run Spellbreaker its just game winning against them. So yeah Spellbreaker inclusion definitely depends on the decks you are running into.

    You don't usually lose cause you were low on health with this deck, you lose cause you ran out of steam, so you don't need lifesteal in this deck that much, Zilliax is more of a control card and there are a lot of 5 drops in the deck already. Crystalsmith Kangor instead of Argent Squire is a better option for lifesteal activator here. But I still believe lifesteal is not needed in the deck, its an aggro deck.

    There is no good windfury activator for paladin, so 1 activator in a deck is fine, I think it is the most optimal choice just like in the rest of Corpsetaker decks.

    Yes most of the times Tarim is used offensively and partly defensively to reduce opponents big minion to 3/3. You not only buff 1/1s, but you buff your other minions. 1/1s usually get buffed when you make a bunch of them with Vinecleaver, but usually its your other small minions that get buffed.

    Level Up! is not good enough here cause you don't have good enough Recruit generation, unlike Odd Paladin who can spam them with hero power.

    I can't say there is a replacement for it. It is just too good. It acts as a finisher in this deck, there would be no point of running Vinecleaver if there was no Tarim too. Tarim is just busted in any paladin deck, even Odd Paladin plays Stonehill Defender to get Tarim. So I would really think about crafting him if your are looking forward to playing paladin in the next couple of months and have some extra dust. Tarim has the 2nd highest Drawn Winrate and Played Winrate after Secretkeeper in this deck, so it is a very important card to this deck.

    You can of course try replacing Tarim and Vinecleaver with say Leeroy Jenkins (as finisher, but it has slight anti synergy with Divine Favor) and say another Fungalmancer or Spellbreaker, but I would not expect as good results as with the deck with Tarim.

    Calls them mindless decks, plays a deck that relies on drawing Reno Jackson to win games. Nice.

    Hey. Glad to hear you are doing well. HSReplay winrates actually indicate that Priest is 2nd best class to go against with this deck after Druid at 64% winrate, you can even see it in your screenshot. So you either just got unlucky in those games or maybe you did something wrong. I'll just copy paste what I wrote here earlier in the comments and hopefully it might help you:

    If you face a priest, it is most likely an OTK Velen Priest or Dragon Combo Priest. I faced mostly OTK Velen Priest, thats the more popular deck in high ranks, so in such matchup Corpsetaker into Blessing of Kings is the key, you want to rush him down fast. So keeping those cards in the mulligan is a good start. Obviously try to find some early game too.

    Play around Mass Hysteria by buffing one of your minions, this way if he plays Mass Hysteria, small minions die, while big one survives. Don't overcommit into Scream or Hysteria by playing Call to Arms. Call to Arms is there to refill after the board clear. Redeption is the best secret in this matchup.

    Divine Favor is a good keep if you already have a good hand to start. Priest will have a big hand, cause they do nothing for a couple of turns, so you can punish them with Divine Favor.

    Matrix can protect a minion if you expect Zilliax, this way you protect a minion and Zilliax gets no Lifesteal on first hit.

    I did not face many Dragon Priests, but I think it is a decent matchup. Try playing around Duskbreaker, Scream etc. Repentance can be good if you expect Twilight Drake. Always consider he might Cabal one of your minions, especially Righteous Protector can save him from some damage.

    Key to beating Odd Rogue sits in Call to Arms and Righteous Protector. You try protect your minions with Righteous Protector or Secrets and usually when you play Call to Arms, rogue falls back on tempo. Bellringer Sentry can be also very good in this matchup, it brings a couple of secrets that negate his hero power and give you more tempo. Sentry is good in all aggressive matchups. Don't allow for Odd Rogue to just trade your minions with their hero power, without getting any value out of them. So say there is no point of playing Knife Juggler on turn 2 if you know he is just gonna trade it with his hero power, better play something else or just hero power.

    Oh man, wild is a different beast, you got Mysterious Challenger there, the card that brought original Secret Paladin to Hearthstone and many other broken cards that are much more powerful than current ones we have in standard. I would recommend you this build.

    This is aggro/midrange deck that relies on finishing off opponents before turn 8. There is not supposed to be an end game strategy in it, although it has Sunkeeper Tarim and Vinecleaver as finishers.

    Most likely Shadow Word: Death and Tar Creeper. Twilight Acolyte is quite essential, its good to run atleast 1.
