I’ve retired going for Dragon Paladin until the next 2 expansions. It just didn’t work, and if anything it got me to upset that I kept on losing, over and over again that I pretty dusted my entire Dragon Paladin Deck out of frustration.
Note to self: Don’t force your fantasy if you keep losing because of it.
However, if you’re not like me where you try and force a fantasy to come to life, Redscale Dragontamer, in my opinion, could have even been a neutral card, but I guess Hearthstone thought that Redscale was more fitting for the whole Murloc Dragon Idea that they had.
Realistically, Redscale would then be only used for drawing out Neutral Legendary Dragons. So Paladin Paladins, in Theory, can now use Default Alexstrasza or Heck, maybe even Highlander Paladin Paladin because they can play Highlander Alexstrasza and Zephyrs and the rest are Paladin Cards. So you only have 2 Neutral cards, and 1 of them it’s just going to be drawn own anyways.
Mind you that Paladin basically has their own version of Zilliax now, Yrel. And Battlecry and Start of Game are 2 completely different things.
5 Stars if Paladin paladin can Evolve along with Redscale, and 3 Stars for Highlander Paladin Paladin, because it’s the newest deck Paladin we has yet.
I mean Nzoth Paladin did need a murloc that wasn’t necessarily the Prime.
Maybe some tier 3/4 murloc paladin deck also runs this to tutor the 5 drop that gives your murlocs divine shield.
I feel like that’d be a weak turn 2 play, and I’ve played Murloc Paladin quite a lot since AoO. And even though the deck doesn’t have great 2 drops, this doesn’t push it to the viable tier I feel
