Neutrality was never an option!

Pure Paladin (also known as No Neutral Paladin, Only Paladin, Lightforged Paladin, or Paladin Paladin) is a tempo/aggro Paladin deck introduced in Descent of Dragons with the deck's build-around cards Lightforged Crusader, Lightforged Zealot and High Exarch Yrel. As the name suggests, the deck uses only Paladin class cards with no neutral cards whatsoever.

This deck mostly focuses on using cost-efficient minions and buffs to maintain tempo on the board and push in damage, using Lightforged Crusader to reload the hand and round out the game. Actual deck-building choices can be relatively open-ended, with the actual degree of aggression depending on the build, although being able to contest the board throughout the game is essential to this deck's success.

Since the only 3 real staples are Lightforged Zealot, Lightforged Crusader and High Exarch Yrel, you can play many variants. However, since no Neutral cards are allowed, Dragons are not seen very often. However, Control Paladin, Holy Wrath Paladin, Midrange Paladin, Libram Paladin and to some extent Mech Paladin can be combined with No Neutral Paladin. In Wild, Silver Hand Paladin can also run No Neutral builds due to almost all Silver Hand Recruit synergy being Paladin-exclusive to begin with.
