Standard Legend N'zoth Control Paladin

Standard Legend N’zoth Control Paladin

Currently one of the strongest Hearthstone decks in the Standard Meta, due to its ability to wipe board or fight for board with high value minions. The enormous amount of healing potential also combats aggro or any type of late game burst.

Strategy

Your goal as control Paladin is to stall the game until the late game, this is where the deck shines the most with the [N’zoth, the Corruptor] bringing back every deathrattle minion from the dead. Dropping an early Doomsayer can help you combat aggro in the early turns, while cards such as Stampeding Kodo & Truesilver Champion will help you combat the Mid-Game onslaught.

In the early game you mainly want to survive & get some card draw. Use your Humility or Aldor Peacekeeper defensively if you feel like you are going to take too much damage versus aggro / midrange. Versus control you can be a little bit greedier with your cards and save your Humility or board wipe ability such as Wild Pyromancer + Equality for when they drop a big bomb.

Remember that you outvalue most decks, so stall the game and win late game, play around their board wipes and try to force your opponent to use his Brawl / Wild Pyromancer +Equality clear before you drop your [N’zoth, the Corruptor].

Keep in mind that only getting one or two minions from [N’zoth, the Corruptor] isn’t necessarily the worst thing ever – it’s still a very solid body.

Mulligan

Look for DoomsayerAcolyte of Pain in your opening hand.

When facing Aggro you will want to have a board clear in hand such as Equality + Wild Pyromancer, because your deck is rather slow and you want to survive the onslaught. If you suspect zoo you can keep Consecration. Keeping [Aldor Peackeeper] also helps to combat the aggro (eg. Shaman running Totem Golem / Flamewreathed Faceless)  . If your hand is already looking good keep Truesilver Champion

If you suspect slower decks, keep your Truesilver Champion.

Against weapon classes you can keep Acidic Swamp Ooze.
