I'm pretty new to the game, so I've been doing a lot of research on classes before I invest too much time delving into suboptimal facets of the game.
Upon visiting a popular theorycrafting website, I was informed that generally Paladins are somewhat under-represented in every tier and are considered to be the weakest class (somewhere around the bottom with priests). Overall, I was told that they are easy to counter.
I was then informed that the most competitive, would probably be Miracle Rogue? Apparently that deck doesn't generally have very bad match-ups (unlike paladins) and is really consistent. Freeze Mage is apparently pretty good too, unless against a control warrior. Then you should concede? Handlock is viable as well as token/ramp up druids.
But Paladins are not?
How long do you think Paladins will remain in this state? I just started playing so I haven't made any real commitments. Nevertheless, I don't want to switch focus to another class based on FOTM knee jerk reactions.
Which Paladin deck right now would you say is a solid decision to be overall competitive?
I mainly chose Paladin because I like the archetype and that was my main in WoW since Vanilla.
Below you will find the site where I found some of the decks I should apparently be working towards:
