Equality combos are very powerful, but also very neccesary for a class that lacks hard removal.

Paladins are nowhere near being overpowered, they are actually the 3rd worst class in the game:

You might want to learn the game before you call Paladins OP.

I haven't had many problems with Paladins, playing a wide variety of decks from Zoolocks to Ramp Druids and Miracle Rogues. They've got a few nice mechanics like that Equality combo but generally speaking they don't have a ton of answers for other decks.

Since Pally was essentially *unplayed* last season, I doubt very much that Blizz is upset that Pally is now playable. It does make netdecking more difficult since a lot available netdecks have a built-in-assumption that it's OK to have a terrible matchup vs Uther. You'll have to *gasp* alter your deck a bit.

Paladins are very easy to beat. You never overextend your board against a Paladin or just get board cleared. You don't have to overextend to even beat them since they lack hard single target removals. The worse they can do to a minion is just reduce its attack to 1 which can be silenced as well.

The only hard removal they have are Equality combos which affect their minions as well and is only used for board clears.

Pally would be good if you could run 4 equalities

Considering our spot removal is limited to Truesilver and Hammer of Wrath, I'd say that our tool set is rather lacking.

Equality + Consecration gets me:

Holy Nova
Explosive trap
Whirlwind
Any *ucking Rogue card
Arcane Explosion/Blizzard
Lightning Storm
Dread Inferno

Wild Pyromancer

Everyone forgets that Equality is the only tool in the game that clears the users side in almost every situation.

Yes, because people never use Cairne, Harvest Golem or Divine shield minions.

And Control warrior, Ramp Druid and Miracle Rogue, some of the best decks, Overfloat their boards, so you can 3 for 2 with the combo.

Equality isn't that good in this meta unless you play aggro, only because have scrubs to trade out with, not for the board clear.

Exactly.

Sure we can use 6 mana to clear your board, but that leaves any minions we have left vulnerable to a lot of easy damage, but our lack of low cost cards cause that combo to usually take up our turn and fall behind

i have no issue with equality consecrate.. the only card that really bugs me in paladin is divine favor, its a 3 mana card that could potentially net you 10 cards... its priced the same as arcane intellect, but could get you x5 the amount of cards. i don't care about anything else in paladin because tbh the deck is underperforming, but that card right there is obnoxious

Thats because you play a deck that probably have many cards in hand at all times, so you got the impression it almost always draw this many cards, vs other card hungry decks or people that have taken notice of Shockadin and use their cards so DF don't get OP, it's usually a dead card, and there are A LOT of these card hungry decks, way more than 50%, so Divine Favor alone don't help you climb anywhere. It's a situational card, like Mindgames and many others.

Divine favor can be played around very easily.

I think that Equality + Elven Archer is the most fun combo to play.

Make our Hammer of Wrath a 2 mana spell, remove the card draw if you like so and give us a hard removal similar to the likes of Polymorph and you are free to take all my Equalities. I'd even hug you for doing so.
