    2 powerful cards to force an archetype. Maybe if more support is printed next year. But doubt this will be viable currently.

    This card is busted in a Pure Paladin build; a free 4/2 with your Truesilver Champion. We'll have to see whether that archetype is viable - if it is, this will clearly be one of its defining cards. Will certainly see lots of experimentation early on.

    sure why not. I really want to try buff spells Shirvallah Pure Pally in wild. Probably not top tier deck but it look fun

    Pure paladin is going to be hard to pull off, especially in wild where there are lots of strong neutral cards to put into the deck.

    truesilver is already a strong 4 mana card and getting a 4/2 for free certainly isn't bad. depends on the build's success really bt this is one of the cards that might make the archetype worthwhile

    With the other no neutral card revealed maybe the archetype could work. It'll have to be a very aggro deck with lots of removal.

    it's 8 mana worth on a 4 mana body, essentially allowing you to carry 4 Truesilver Champions in your deck, which is Paladin's favorite card

    The card itself seems absolutely amazing, Truesilver champ for 4 mana is already good, but getting a 4/2 on top of it its amazing . Still don’t know where to play this or if its even gonna be standard playable at all, but if it DOES see play it will be nuts.

    Not good enough. A big build-around requirement for a very small pay off.

    I have no faith in this "pure paladin" thing. 4/2 body as an extra to Truesilver Champion is imho not that exciting for limiting your deck building options so severely.

    Pretty hard to pull it off without Wyrmrest Purifier and honestly the reward is not fitting to the amount of trouble it takes to make this happen.

    imo, will not see play. deckbuilding restriction is too punishing

    Interesting, I thought the "Pure Paladin" thing was a joke

    If someone makes it work, it will be strong, but for now I see no possibility of a pure deck forming (even using a few neutrals)

    i'm having a feeling that mid-expansion someone will figure out a deck for this card and it will be tier 1

    No Neutral Paladin seems like a really fun deck to play
