Even Paladins (Masters Ranked 10)

Standard Deck By


Cost Curve




This has been my pet deck the last couple months. I beat PChapin with it last month, which was awesome, and this month used it exclusively from Gold 1 all the way to Masters. I hit Masters at ranked 10 and had a 16-4 win rate in my last 20 matches.

The combination of life gain and aegis keeps you in the running until you can start slamming Svetya. Then it is often (but not always) GG.

Any deck that runs 4x Evenhanded Golem and 4x Svetya will always have my heart. If that sounds fun to you, you should try it out too.

This deck has exploded in popularity. Between this deck and the Evenhanded monoTime I built to rocket to top 25 masters today, I'm seriously worried about an impending Evenhanded Golem nerf.

I've got to say though, your deck is a joy to play against despite its power. It does a lot of cool things and always goes BIG when it goes off.
AlcideBava Eternal Version: 1.46.10
Thanks, and I agree. It's a fun, powerful deck, has some interaction but still lets the opponent play, likes to enact it's own game plan, and overall is fair.
Ninjacan Eternal Version: 1.46.10
it is crazy how many people are playing this deck on ladder right now, it's like 50% of my matchups. I just played 2 matches back to back against people in top 100 with this deck
AlcideBava Eternal Version: 1.46.10
Yeah, I'm surprised how much it has taken off. It's cool, though, I feel like I broke the meta or something. :)
Mightisright Eternal Version: 1.46.10
I was having a miserable time playing revenge argenport in diamond. Thank you for this.
AlcideBava Eternal Version: 1.46.10
You're welcome! Glad you're enjoying it.

This deck seems to be everywhere in the past two days! Thanks for posting it. What are your thoughts on adding 2 regent's tombs in place of reclaim? I'm finding the regent's tombs more useful after about a dozen matches. Also, what about imperial loyalist?
AlcideBava Edited Eternal Version: 1.46.10
Reclaim is probably my least favorite card in the list so yeah, got nuts. Tomb in particular seems like a great replacement.

As for Loyalist, do you run her without Reweave? I'm not sure. If you try and cram in both, you're really starting into a different deck entirely.
SasquatchBrah Eternal Version: 1.46.10
I put her in over the reclaims and mantle. I don't feel like reweave is necessary or right for this deck. She helps out with the base 25 power (essentially giving you another power in your deck for first hands) and feels alright with the # of activators with platemaker and vanq blade and some extra standards (take out avigraft/runehammer for that)
UrbanGhost Eternal Version: 1.46.10
After seeing this deck a few times, i decided to give it a try. This brew lives up to the hype. I went on a 20-3 run with casual, ranked and practice.

The only change i made was switching blades out...i used Inquistor's Blade.....
AlcideBava Eternal Version: 1.46.10
Yeah, I could see where having flying would be great. That Mantle, though ... having a 32/32 lifelinker is just amazing sometimes.
Velsevul Eternal Version: 1.46.10
Svetya, Icaria and Evenhanded should be paladins too :-)
AlcideBava Eternal Version: 1.46.10
Oh man, even just Svetya would be amazing. Being able to bond her and then cheat her out early with another buffed unit would be crazy!
Izaro Eternal Version: 1.46.10
Having played against and lost to this deck many times now, I've got to say it's incredibly powerful. I'm 5 rares and the Homecoming campaign away from building this, and you can bet I'll give it a whirl once I've gotten the cards.
AlcideBava Eternal Version: 1.46.10
Great, hope you enjoy it!
biologynut99 Edited Eternal Version: 1.46.10
Have some issue VS flying-heavy decks.

So stuck in a few Memory Dredgers since we have so many 2 drops - even tho golem is voidbound (which is a good thing overall)

Against Gauntlet it's even more amazing dredging.

So adding dredger has been great, and relentless deadshots too - buffed by Svetya they are even more insane!
AlcideBava Eternal Version: 1.46.10
That's awesome. My main strategem vs flyers is to save the right removal and outrace them. Lifegain is key. But glad you were able to adapt and overcome!
Gold47 Eternal Version: 1.46.10
I will say, this is really unfortunate when you're playing against a deck with Street Urchins haha. Otherwise a really fun experience in Ranked, thanks.
AlcideBava Eternal Version: 1.46.10
I will blow a Desecrate on one of those little bastards if it prevents an activation, every time. Is that the right play? Probably not. But it feels good.

thanks for this!

You're welcome, glad you are enjoying it!
brody138 Eternal Version: 1.46.10
I love that this deck is still around. You can see the original creation in the decks on my profile. This deck lost a lot of its value engine when Evenhanded Golem got void bound, and had moved onto the Combrei Killers version I made for the S2 Invitationals. I never went back and tried to update it, but I’m glad someone did! I’ll give it a spin when I find time next week. <3
biologynut99 Eternal Version: 1.46.10
Any thoughts on Relentless Deadshot?

I always stick em in my Mono-J evenhanded decks, just so much potential if you can boost him with platemaker, or a weapon, or something. Stun a couple things in a single turn for no cards? yes please!
AlcideBava Eternal Version: 1.46.10
There is some flex, so definitely give it a shot. Looks pretty sweet to me.
Rainhall Eternal Version: 1.46.10
I'm having fun getting used to this one in Gauntlet right now. There's a lot going on with the bond and renown tricks that I'll need to get used to, for instance how an Anointed can ramp a Hojan into a bonded Copperhall Paladin on the same turn. Do you have any advice about combos and about mulligans?
AlcideBava Eternal Version: 1.46.10
Hey, glad you're enjoying it.

I will try and write out more later and append the description above. Basically, the deck is pretty power hungry. You can do a lot to ramp but you generally need three power to start things off. I'll keep a two-power hand if I have playable cards on the draw and with a crest to dig a bit, or any time I have a golem in hand. Otherwise I am more happy with 3-4 power to start.

Try not to leave your Anointed hanging out there for a turn. There is still a lot of torch around. Playing Anointed and Hojan on turn 3 is often much stronger than playing Anointed t2 and Hojan t3, even if some yetis hit you in the face while you're trying to be patient.

Sometimes you want to hold Icaria's ability to trigger Hojan's empower, or even double-trigger Hojan depending on what blockers you are facing down. Gaining life is pretty important to outvaluing other aggro/midrange lists, so keep these kinds of things in mind.

Playing a Vanquisher's Blade on Copperhall without the Spellcraft just because you want the ramp is okay.

If you already have your SS, then you always want to pull Justice sigils from Ice Bolts, etc. Icaria wants 6 and Mantle of Justice wants as many as you can give it. That lone shadow sigil is tempting but just ignore it.

I'll try and do a full write-up later.
