This is a Midrange Paladin deck that aims to capitalize on Bolvar, Fireblood and Blackguard. 

I don’t have a lot of the Paladin mainstays (Such as Tirion and Aldor Peacekeeper), so I just made this out of what I have. 

Light’s Sorrow isn’t that good, but sometimes it can be useful. 

Bloodworm, Lay on Hands, and Ivory Knight are all for Blackguard to ping minions, clearing the way for the face.

Let me know what you think on inclusions of cards like Skulking Geist and Bonemare. I’m seeing only moderate success with this deck, so I’d like some budget card opinions. I’m also having a lot of problems establishing a presence early game.

Thanks for checking out my deck!

    The thing with Paladin is that it’s probably the most Legendary intensive class in the game… not surprising since it has some of the best Legendaries.

    If you want to focus on the Blackguards you’ll probably want Wickerflame Burnbristle (especially with Corpsetaker); he’s cheap at 3 mana and even if you pull him late, when you’ve got a Blackguard on the board, you could be getting extra value from the lifesteal.

    The DK, Uther of the Ebon Hand, would be a good fit too – since he equips a 5/3 Lifesteal weapon. Even Happy Rag might work quite well though you’ve got Lay on Hands at that slot.

    You should probably also focus on one theme – you’re diluting your win conditions by going with a bit of Lifesteal and a bit of Divine Shield focus. With Blackguard synergy I’d drop the Howling Commanders, Bolvar Fireblood, the Blood Knight and Light’s Sorrow.

    You’re also *really* top heavy, 1/3 of your deck costs 6 mana or more! That’s why you’re struggling in the early game – Skulking Geist is doing you no real favours. Mistress of Mixtures might be a good call – gives you a good body early on and it gains value when combined with a Blackguard if you draw it late. Tar Creeper is a good, cheap anti-aggro card as well – keep Stonehill Defender though, it gives you a chance to pull Tirion.

    I’d go with either Spikeridged Steed or Bonemare, not both – they perform similar roles at similar costs. Bloodworm is expensive for what it is but it does curve nicely into the Steed (if it survives) – so I’d probably keep the worms, add an extra Steed and drop the Bonemares.
