I've been playing rank for a little bit now but I don't know why I can't get pass rank 14, I keep having a loosing streak, but honestly, i thought that my deck isnt all that bad considering I have a few legendaries and some good cards. If you can please help improve my deck and teach me some tricks that'd be great :) Thank you

I have some pritty good ideas as to why you can't pass ranks :)

Drop:


-1x Argent Squire (dead card lategame which is rlly bad and not neccesary)
-1-2x Acidic (1 max if u rlly want one)
-2x Azure Drake (great card but not the best for pala control)
-2x Argent Commander (decent card but better alternatives for control pala)
-1x Argus (better to run just one)
-Alexstrasza (Tirion Ragnaros and Guardians are enough)

Potential drop (these are nice cards but can be dropped for better alternatives if needed)
-1x Hammer of Wrath
-1x Chillwind
-1x Guardian of Kings

Add Options

-2x Wild Pyromancer (musthave for sync with equality)
-2x Aldor Peacekeeper (best paladin card, musthave imo)
-2x Sunfury Protector (earlygame survival vs rush)
-1x Holy Light (earlygame survival vs rush)
-1-2x Sen'Jin Shieldmasta (to be considered if you are having trouble against rush , instead of chillwind)
-1x Stampeding Kodo (great sync with Aldor peacekeeper and good card on its own)
-2x 6-drop (Cairne, Sylvanas, Sunwalker, Boulderfist all good)
-1x Lay on Hands (Lategame Lifesaver)

Hope it helped

Thank you!
i actually fixed it abit and had some of the same cards. I added sen'jins and pyros. Will sunfury be effective tho? I don't have many lower drops.

I agree with just about everything Carlito wrote. I just wanted to point out that if your 2/3-drop profile ends up like:

X1 Acidic Swamp Ooze [probably the right amount]
X2 Earthen Ring Farseer
X2 Harvest Golem
x2 Wild Pyromancer [auto-include]
x2 Aldor Peacekeeper [auto-include]
x2 Sunfury Protector

that's maybe a bit too crowded. My advice would be to drop the Harvest Golems (and maybe the Sunfurys - if you're not able to handle aggro, then consider putting them in).

If you put the azure drakes out you will lack card drawing power.
Lay on hands is a must in that case, but I would suggest using an additionald form of card draw (i.e acolyte of pain, Cult master, Harisson Jones)

I would drop 1 guardian of kings and leave Alex in. I run double kings, but that is only because I do not own Alex yet

I have about a ~75% win rate (give or take) and my deck is very similar to yours. Differences explained below:

X2 Equality
X1 Acidic Swamp Ooze
X1 Big Game Hunter
X2 Wild Pyro
X2 Harvest Golem
X2 Aldor Peace Keeper
X2 Truesilver Champion
X2 Consecration
X2 Defender of Argus
X1 Sen'jin Shieldmasta
X1 Blessing of Kings
X1 Faceless Manipulator
X2 Stampeding Kodo
X1 Avenging Wrath
X1 Argent Commander
X1 Cairne Bloodhoof
X1 The Black Knight
X1 Guardian of Kings
X1 Lay on Hands
X1 Ragnaros the Firelord
X1 Tirion Fordring
X1 Ysera

Big Game Hunter provides a good stat 3-drop when needed and an excellent remedy to late game Ragnaros. 1 Shieldmasta is usually sufficient with 2 Defenders. Blessing of Kings gives that extra little boost when you need it. You're going to want 2 Kodos. If you want 2 Avenging Wraths that's a matter of taste. I crafted a Black Knight because it's basically a Yeti with Assassinate. Cairne is always a solid choice because it takes multiple cards to get rid of him AND Bane. I have 1 Guardian of Kings because his effect, plus 1 Lay on Hands and 2 Truesilvers are (I think) sufficient for your healing needs. Argent Commander's charge and shield means it's going to take multiple attacks to get rid of him. I have a Sylvanas but I honestly prefer the Commander for a more "aggressive" play-style. Ysera vs. Alexstraza is a matter of taste. Personally, I like Ysera's 12HP — Makes her harder to get rid of and she doesn't count for Big Game Hunters.

Good luck!
