(LSV) I like hitting as hard as Mirran Crusader, and trading some protections for bonus haste-like damage is not a bad deal. Curving out with a Champion of the Parish, any 2-drop, and this guy on turn three is a real beating, and definitely something Humans decks need to consider. It is clearly a metagame call whether to include the Paladin or the Crusader, but it being such a close contest at all speaks well for the Paladin.
