Paladins are in a very good spot. The glue that makes the deck sing is the Attendant. Melee champs that really synergize well with the attendant are the CK and Magnus. We now have plenty of ranged paladins as well, the attendant gives them a melee attack on spot as well as anyone can get +3 dmg just for giggles, when they need it. I like to use as many paladin ranged as possible to get the most out of command. The only shamans that I use are the VWs, which I feel are vital autoincludes. I'll sometimes use bolts in times where Pygmie Stampede or Dark Rising (incredible instantaneous board presence) are problematic and commonly seen.
