Let's break down the combos you have with this particular version of the budget Aggro Paladin. Committing these to memory will go a long way to helping you achieve a much higher win-rate. Make 'em all second nature!

- When you cast Smuggler's Run, every minion in your hand will gain an additional +1 / +1 of stats. It pays to get as much value as you can from this play, especially as this is a cheaper version of the deck.

- You can use Argent Protector to give an active minion a Divine Shield. This will let the target deliver damage to a problematic minion without coming to any harm.

- Grimestreet Outfitter works in a similar fashion to Smuggler's Run, but as well as getting the bonus stats you'll also get a 1 / 1 minion out into play as well.

- Rallying Blade synergises with every minion on the board that has Divine Shield. If they're bubbled when you equip this weapon, each one will gain +1 / +1 of stats.

- Try to protect Grimestreet Enforer as much as possible, as he'll grant +1 / +1 of stats to every minion card in your hand, for every turn he remains alive on the board.

- If it's at all possible you should avoid playing Doppelgangster until you've fattened the base card up with as many buffs as possible.

- You can use Bonemare to not only give a friendly minion a huge buff of +4 / +4 stats, it'll also gain Taunt which provides your side of the board with an intimidating defensive wall.
