Standard Legend Aggro Paladin

Even though Aggro Paladin isn’t such a popular deck on ladder right now, it still makes some appearances every now and then in tournament play or a sudden high legend finish. The deck featured here is the deck from “dude_7597” who made it to rank 1 with Aggro Paladin. One of the main strengths of this deck is its surprise factor.

Strategy

You are racing your opponent for damage from turn 1 but you will need to establish board first. Fight for board in the early stages of the game with your divine shield synergy: Argent Squire + Abusive Sergeant should help out with that, as well as your other early game minions. When you are going into the midgame you will have to make a call on how you will approach the game, either keep on controlling the board through value trades with Blessing of Kings / Keeper of Uldaman or start pushing damage to the face. Think about potential clears your opponent can have, and what type of removal he has used already. When having Divine Favor in hand and facing control you often want them to draw, because it fuels your Divine Favor.  

Mulligan

You are looking for an aggressive opening, mainly wanting your 1-drops: Argent Squire, Selfless Hero, Sir Finley Mrrgglton, Worgen Infiltrator. If you already have a few of these 1-drops, keep Abusive Sergeant; it can provide a massive swing turn in the early game.

 

When on [The Coin] you can also keep Bilefin Tidehunter, Flame Juggler.

If you suspect your opponent to be playing control, you can keep Divine Favor.
