Tone down Sword of Justice
If you use it later, like on turn 4 with a 1-drop, you're getting maybe a 3/2 or a 2/2, the next turn Harrison is a risk and the game should be mostly over by turn 6. In other cases, you need to Consecrate or Truesilver on 4. So now SoJ is possible a turn 6 play, so you're looking at maybe 2, 3 charges used before the end. SoJ is good on either turn 2 w/ Coin or turn 5-6.
I think its a pretty ok weapon. But half the paladin community doesnt even use SoJ, which should hint that its not as good as you want to think it is.
People always complain about the 1/1 buff, but what about other weapons like eaglehorn that if played right can stay active forever, or gorehowl that is a 7mana 7turn weapon with insane dmg value.

A great start.. if you happen to draw into it.. and they don't ooze it the following turn. IMO its almost a dead card in the current meta, because it is a slow card. One attack damage isn't much and you need minions to follow it up. You do usually lose tempo and board control by playing it, Truesilver Champion is the better weapon.
I consider it essential against mages as it bumps up recruits to a level where they ahve to spend a coin or a creature to remove it.
TL;DR sword of justice is balanced and working as intended as far as I can tell. If you don't like it, run ooze. If you REALLY hate it, play jones.

Also, attacking with it damages your hero, which only happens when things can get critical. If anything, it should be 1/4 and reduced to 2 mana cost.
But I agree it's very balanced card, one of the few in this game.
