    This is great for preparation as a whole.

    Faster Paladin Decks might even grab 2 of these instead of Blessing of Kings.

    I can see this being Ridiculos if your opponent dosen’t have an answer. I even see it as a 5 Mana: “You Oppoment must have an answer. If your opponent dosen’t, You’ll likely win.”

    5 Stars. Go wild, Paladins.

    Paladin usually has a minion on board and if not, they can summon one with their Hero Power. There are tons of good targets for this, so as long as Silence is not prominent in the Meta, this should be played.
    However, I won’t rate it 5 Stars because Paladin is already good at building big minions and currenty lacks strong early game control, so this might be cut if the Meta demands it. Therefor, 4 Stars.

    Sometimes when you’re firmly losing board you have to waste a Blessing of Kings on a Silver Hand Recruit and it feels bad. This make plays like that feel good ‘cuz you won’t attack with them anyway. The High Abbess is a good target for this, so is Devout Pupil. So is everything, honestly. Good card.

    Sadly silence/polymorph/evolve mechanics are quite obviously going to be part of the meta with all the insane cards we are getting. This card is powerful and Paladin is finally getting some nice big and buff cards but silencing is a weakness too big for that deck. That being said I’ll sadly give this only 3 stars.

    That’s not funny at all who cares if can’t hit hero that turn tag this on a taunt or a lifesteal minion even a divine shield minion this is frightening. How about a 9/9 silverhand.
