No Neutral Paladin
No Neutral Paladin (also known as Pure 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 and Lightforged Zealot. 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 2 real staples are Lightforged Zealot and Lightforged Crusader, 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 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.
