Default Best deck for Royal Paladins

Has some sort of tier 1 competitive list been established as to what should be in a royal paladin deck? Is there some sort of deck list that I should strive for?

An example would be the deck listed in this thread. http://www.pojo.biz/board/showthread.php?t=1035558
Is this the best Royal Paladin deck combination?

Thanks

Another power gamer, huh? Basically read any Paladin deck that is not a budget build and it's pretty much the same with only small variation.

Just test my deck and make personal preference changes, my build has been very good and is made purely to be competitive. It is a pricey deck [200-300$]

Do note I am going off of the highest prices for most of these cards. But

Any non budget paladin is obviously pricey a set of Alfred goes well up to 140 and the soul savors are 80 (40 each) that's the bulk of the costs. A good 220 right there the flash shields are about 20 each which makes it 300 and then the blaster blades and Barcgal add 50.
That's 350 for only part of the deck.

Llews cost 15-20 each and on average Paladins play 2 so we chalk up another 30/40 on the list. That puts the deck up to 380/400

If you were to play the super combo aichi style deck and play four Pegasus knights you would add another 10-15 per knight.

Obviously no one will be doing full max price for the cards but in this light it shows that paladins are pretty pricey. Non budget usually means at least 3 Alfred the soul savors the Llews and Barcgal/flash shields and a healthy set of blaster blades

Can anyone ever read the whole post?

I said the highest prices of those cards would lead to that
Highest being close to what my locals prices are.

The highest anyone should go for paladins are
35 Alfred
40 ssd
13 barcgal
10 for any blaster blade with a skill
20 for llew
20 for any perfect guard.

lol how did you manage to swing that

Thanks for your thoughts everyone, as I needed to know the what the base pieces were and essentially build around them.

Another question though, considering the large financial investment this deck is, are there any major overhauls that will be needed to be done in the near future? Or will this provide me with a competitive deck for a while?

Ebay :P

And it should do you justice for awhile, the next set is I believe April 28th or sometime in May. Depending on the next pack we get, it may need some tweaking, but every deck will require this regardless.

just check the guide in my sig, should make your life easier... and make a note. Palomides is good. he keeps paladins afloat from set 3 onwards to set 5

Ah, yes. This is what I was interested in. Someone who knows what's coming through the japanese sets.

While it may be pointless to plan for the future, I don't want to spend 100+ on alfreds only to have them outclassed in the next set. This is good news, thanks. And Amuki your guide is very helpful, thank you.

Well, knowing Japanese sets don't make a difference in this situation since the next set we are getting is being release in ENG and JPN around the same time, so for the most part we are kinda in the dark. So, JPN Set 6 will be ENG Set 3. We are going by what has been stated in Bushiroad conferences and spoilers shown from outside sources like magazines and such.

The above is true with regards to Japanese Set 6 being English Set 3. Note, however, that the RP deck will get a bit of an overhaul come English Set 4, which will presumably be Japanese Set 3.

When that set gets released Barcgal will be banned as a starting Vanguard, forcing you to choose some other starter. This happened around the release of Japanese Set 3 because a) Barcgal RPs were broken and b) the Galahad series of RP cards gets released in Japanese Set 3 to replace Barcgal-based play.

What do you call the sets after 1-6 are all released in english then?

the overhaul is much appreciated though. Still similar in playstyle and wastes less cards now.

No idea. Bushiroad hasn't explained precisely what's going to happen. All we know is that JPN sets 3-5 will likely get released as English 4-6, ending in late 2012.
