Paladin is often considered to be the second strongest arena class at the moment, behind Mage. Before Whispers of the Old Gods launched, it was neck and neck for first place. They didn’t get any good cards from Whispers, but they are still quite strong. Their hero power is one of the best in arena, which helps quite a bit. However, the reason they are so dominant comes down to the same as always – the cards.
Paladin and Mage have a lot in common in this regard. They simply have the tools to overrun their opponents easily. This is because both of their power lies heavily in class commons and rares. This means they have their best cards fairly often. Let’s take a look at which cards make Paladin the powerhouse that it is in arena.
