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

    An archetype-defining card and one that will see lots of experimentation. Like with duplicates in highlander decks, there's always the possibility of putting one or two neutrals in that have very powerful effects, e.g. Zephrys. I feel like these Pure Paladin builds will probably be outclassed in the long run, but certainly has potential. I hope it gets more support in later expansions and doesn't end up being the next Cryostasis Shaman.

    I am gonna name decks featuring that card "racist paladin" :-)

    Neat concept, but needs far more support.

    That card might not be viable in standard with the limited card pool, but I'm for sure trying this in wild. Incredible draw engine as it is : draw five is a lot.

    Nice mechanic , but only 2 cards  for a new archetype sounds rare

    I don't think right now this archetype it's going to work. Maybe in future expansions.

    It's a big minion with good stats, that adds to your hand without increasing fatigue for your hero. 

    Very good card

    This is definitely meant to be played with the 2 cost that makes all neutral cards in your deck into random class cards. Yes random cards aren’t bad but if your hand is mostly empty 5 random cards is better than nothing.

    Nice value generation as 5 cards is A LOT. However, I don't really think you can completely rely on paladin cards alone to build a very good deck. Don't even think about making this work in arena unless you have Wyrmrest Purifier

    I don't see this deck working out. Might be a fun deck to try out though.

    I don't have hope in this "pure paladin" idea, although generated value is insane.

    If there's any reason to go full on Wyrmrest Purifier this would be it. 5 cards in the hand is not too bad, especially for a class without much card draw, but since its all class cards you can only hope you get this card again for the infinite value.

    Maybe its a fit in highlander paladin, can't see this being in anywhere else.

    I like the idea of constructing decks that belong to one class. Hope they will continue add such mechanics to another classes.

    Interesting mechanic, not sure how to rate it, as I am rating every card in the order they are in the cards section, so I havent seen the final cards of the set, I will rate it lower than I could have, probably.

    So, a 3/5, might see testing for its new mechanic, but I dont think it will be good enough of a deck.
