    Archangel: Solid runes now. Gets Aid Defense from Bastion. Can proc exploit from numerous sources of Brand or Hammerstrike or Truthseeker's Sapping Armor.
    Diviners: Aid Defense and Illuminate for obvious reasons. Can also give Aura to your unit with Medal to proc battle leader more.
    Guardian: Defender for more defense, Swap and Nexus aura are baller.
    Bastion: Aid defense effects all your other units.
    Squire: Does his thing.
    Crusader: With all the other threats in the deck he usually goes unnoticed until he is a monster.
    Isran: Commander unit. Could use Barb Commander or Pally Commander but she is both a barbarian and a paladin so effects everyone.
    NCP: Utility rune.
    Plainswalker: Cuz she is bonkers.
    Truthseekers: Carry games
    Zedin cuz he is a badass.

    I've pretty much cloned your deck Markoth because I think it looks really effective and I'm a big fan of the barbarian/paladin aesthetic. What times do you usually play? I'd like to watch you use it so I can see how you play your BG and get some ideas on how to use it effectively and properly.

    (Tips & advice would also be welcome!)

    I play most evenings after 6EST or so. I will be on later tonight because I am meeting up with some friends and will be on earlier tomorrow. I will be on pretty much all day Friday and Sat. If you see me on feel free to shoot me a message or check in on the Discord server (See the stickied thread on General Discussion) because I am usually online.

    Assuming Tiny doesnt spam games tonight I should pass him with this deck.

    What're people running for constructs after the last couple of patches? They got a lot of changes and I feel like my BG needs to be updated (especially with 2 shiny new Flamebreath Ballistas!), but I'm not sure where to start.

    Well that's... nothing at all like mine. I use loadstone builders, barricade, and silverclan cavaliers to do stupid damage by slamming things into walls. So far it's worked brilliantly until they hit forge hammer and some of the nora costs.

    I had been running something similar till the forge hammer nerf, now its not really worth trying to build the theme around it, though with Builder and Cavaliers/Clockwork Swarms you can get a pretty good Reclaim based Bg going, however I'm running something more similar to cyan now and having some success so far with it.

    yes i know but it's 5 ap with cd 3 when Invigorate it's 4 ap with cd 3 - so Invigorate give u 12 ap in 6 round when Grant: Action Potion give u only 10
    so how is better?
    Attendant Squire or Carrier Squire
    and if i can make it more complicated what about Hound master (drive and summon) or Dwarven Sergeant (drive and Rallying Cries [Defender and Command: Block])?
    or Guardian is better then Sergeant?

    better range, dont need to position it so that they will grant enough AP to get the full effect.
