    Hot take, but I don’t think this card is gonna be able to push recruits into any top meta deck. Silver Recruits without the buff of Balloon Merchant are really just too weak to compete against other meta aggro decks at the moment – 1/1s won’t stand a chance at holding the board against Zoolock with its nonstop flood of overstatted one-drops, or Demon Hunter with Umberwing and Satyr Overseer.

    So that means as soon as you summon all your puny recruits, they’re gonna get demolished by your aggro opponent. You won’t have any recruits to buff until you ramp up to the late game, and at that point your recruits would be irrelevant.

    Ah yes the cancer archetype from way back during K&C / The Witchwood is back for everyone to hate. GREAT! Please don’t print any more silver hand support than this Blizzard. I hate paladins enough as is. 5/5

    hmm, do sidequest Righteous Cause on turn 1 or 2
    play Air Raid twice or with Day at the Faire on turn 3
    play this on turn 4 = Profit!!
    Add Robes of Protection to make opponent concede after.

    Tempo Paladin is back.

    I love Silver Hands when they’re not OP, and with current support they don’t seem to be. 5 stars also

    I genuinely despise silver hands as a mechanic, this card will be super annoying cause some decks just straight up can’t deal with it. Gotta hope Paladin doesn’t have same access to them like it did when Baku was around

    Thank god it costs 4 and not 5. This card would’ve been disgusting in odd paladin in wild I feel.

    Wow, works great late game with your HP or the new 3 cost card that summons recruits. Actually GOOD.
