Duel Paladin (also known as Big Paladin) is a Paladin deck archetype focused around "cheating out" large minions from the deck far earlier than usual. The deck utilizes cards like Duel! and Commencement to summon high-cost minions from the deck, while also running a token package with cards such as First Day of School, Air Raid and Muster for Battle to stabilize against faster opponents.
