Wild format

With the start of the Year of the Dragon, The WitchwoodGenn Greymane and even-cost related cards rotated to wild, making Even Paladin a wild-exclusive archetype. For more information, see Game format.

Genn Greymane, the archetype-enabling card.

Even Paladin is a variant of the Midrange Paladin deck. It's an archetype enabled by the Witchwood card The WitchwoodGenn Greymane and is built entirely from even-costed card to enable him. Compared to its cousin Odd Paladin, while Even Paladin is not as effective as flooding the board and lacks access to LegacyDivine Favor for huge card redraw, their 1-cost Hero Power makes maintaining a board consistent and they have more access to board-wide buff effects like Journey to Un'GoroSunkeeper Tarim and Kobolds & CatacombsLevel Up!. Due to the removal of Genn Greymane from the standard format at the start of the Year of the Dragon, Even Paladin is now exclusive to play in Wild.

While both Odd and Even Paladin were about equally popular during their time in Standard, after entering Wild, Even Paladin became a fringe deck while Odd Paladin remained a popular aggro deck. The following section lists cards played during the Year of the Raven meta.

Prior to Patch 11.1.1, Even Paladin utilized the power of Kobolds & CatacombsCall to Arms to overwhelm the board very early, though with the patch Call to Arms was changed to be odd-costed, removing it from the archetype.
