I have been playing this deck a lot lately and I don't think this deck will work without the Drake's or LichKing. Drake's are key to surviving aggro and LK is the way you will win control matchups. Without those cards I think you will get run over in aggro and have no real way to finish in a control match up.
As for a list, I swapped out a cube for a mossy horror and have had a good amount of success with it. He is a target for Oakheart and he can be a game saving board clear against Pally or Zoo.
This is such a coincidence that it is shocking to me. I got a legendary in my brawl pack this week on both my NA & my EU accounts. Considering this is a legendary brawl, is this really coincidence? Didn't see this mentioned anywhere but what are the odds?
It sure seems that Blizzard is trying to move away from powerful stand alone cards. Instead they are giving us tools that we can use to make powerful decks with powerful combos. My guess is there will be new recruit synergy coming that might make this card a good tool in some decks.
Judging cards before we see the rest of what they are putting out seems kinda pointless. While we know what we are loosing we have no idea everything that we are gaining. It is quite possible there will be cards that have recruits synergy coming so not sure people need to worry about a nerf to Paladin just yet.
No. I have been playing this deck for about a month and took it to Rank 5 last season, by far my best finish. Try and fight for the board with early minion while dealing early face damage. You will lose the board around turns 4-6. Once that happens then you start to stall and draw cards collecting as much burn as possible. Then throw all the burn to face for lethal over the final couple turns. The deck is very effective vs. Secret Paladin and Zoo. Terrible against Control Warrior. Think I am 0-21 against Control Warrior.
