UPDATE 3/26/19!!  See below....

Here's my 3rd attempt at a Wild Emperor Thaurissan Exodia Paladin!  I think this one has potential.  The idea is to play Emperor Thaurissan with at least one Blackwald Pixie in your hand.  Then play Uther of the Ebon Blade.  Bounce 2 different horsemen to your hand (with Zola the Gorgon and Youthful Brewmaster).  Then play horseman1, horseman2, HP, Blackwald Pixie (for 2 mana), HP, gg. 

I welcome comments and suggestions.  I really think the best version of Wild Exodia Paladin should use Emperor Thaurissan and Blackwald Pixie (and Uther of the Ebon Blade of course).  Call to Arms is great to thin out your deck and get the combo pieces faster.  The rest of the cards are replaceable.  Obviously we have to tech in cards to beat aggro decks.

(Some) Card Explanations:

Righteous Protector - Good card for 1-drop.  Not sure if 2 are needed.

Dirty Rat - This card is good, however It can burn you (don't play against Big Priest, Even Warlock, etc).  But it can be great to stop other combo decks.  And Call to Arms can pull out a 6-health taunt for you.

Equality - Needed for AOE combo with Consecration or Wild Pyromancer.

Loot Hoarder, Plated Beetle, Wild Pyromancer - All good 2-drops that work well with Call to Arms.  Not sure if 2 copies of each are needed.  I realize I'm running more 2-drops than usual w/ Call to Arms.

Blackwald Pixie - Resets your HP.  Not sure if the second one is needed, but It can be very useful....especially if they both get reduced by Emperor Thaurissan.

Stonehill Defender, Wickerflame Burnbristle, and Truesilver Champion - All good 3-4 drops to balance out the curve and slow down aggro.  Not sure how manyStonehill Defenders/Truesilver Champions to run.  Stonehill Defender can make your handsize too big at times.

Zola the Gorgon and Ancient Brewmaster - These are your bounce cards.  Zola the Gorgon can be used to bounce other cheap cards to help stop aggro if nec. 

Consecration - Awesome Aoe

Call to Arms - I think this is essential to help draw thru the deck.

Shrink Ray - Trying one out as a 3rd Equality.  Sometimes I lose when I can't find that Equality to help clear the board.

Solemn Vigil - Awesome card when used after you clear the board.  Very cheap card draw!

Emperor Thaurissan - So broken.  Have we seen another card like this recently?   Obviously the more cards in your hand, the better.  Usually, as long as I have one Blackwald Pixie in hand I'll play Emperor Thaurissan.  (If you have the coin, you don't need Emperor Thaurissan to pull off the OTK combo.)

Spikeridged Steed - I used to run two.  Now I'm running one.  I think one is good.  It sucks having 2 of these in your hand early. 

Sunkeeper Tarim - Great card,  It can be awesome after Call to Arms.  You can also play it if your board is empty which makes it more useful that Spikeridged Steed. The downside is if your enemy's board has lots of minions and you don't.  I keep going back and forth on this card.

Uther of the Ebon Blade- Gives you the power of the 4-Horsemen! 

The idea here is that there are multiple ways to get the 4-horsemen down.  You only need one Blackwald Pixie.  The second one can be a decoy or it can be used to try to set up the OTK next turn if you don't have enough horsemen.  If you lose Zola the Gorgon or Ancient Brewmaster, that second Blackwald Pixie will be useful.  Emperor Thaurissan can really help there too.

(Rough) Mulligan Guide:  I always keep Call to Arms!

For Aggro, keep all the good cheap stuff (not Blackwald Pixie or Zola the Gorgon).  I'd keep Righteous Protector, Dirty Rat, Equality, Plated Beetle, maybe Wild Pyromancer, Stonehill Defender, Wickerflame Burnbristle, Consecration (against Zoo and Paly), Truesilver Champion, basically whatever can help you survive early.

For Control/Combo matchups, I keep Loot Hoarder, Dirty Rat (not against Priest), Emperor Thaurissan.

Cards to Consider:

I used to run Potion of Heroism for more card draw.  I've thought about Crystalsmith Kangor for healing potential.   Doomsayer is another one that I've been trying.  I think it's good in this meta....not sure if it belongs in this deck though.

Fencing Coach could be interesting.  The idea is to play it the turn before you set up the OTK.  Then, your 1st HP will cost 0.  It could work if you have cheap enough Blackwald Pixie's, etc to generate all 4 Horsemen.  This could be overkill though.

Let me know what you think!   With a little tweaking I think this deck could work.  Remember, you can still win even if they pull out one or two of your combo pieces.  I'll post an update soon.  Currently I'm rank 9 with it. 

 Thanks for reading and Good Luck!!!


Update - 8/12

Changes    - Spikeridged Steed, + Giggling Inventor

Currently 7-9.  Tough in this crazy meta.  I really think Giggling Inventor belongs in this deck.  Maybe two of them?  Not sure what to take out....there are a ton of 2-drops.  I could cut the 2nd Blackwald Pixie.  It feels like we could use more card draw too....I'm missing Potion of Heroism a little.  I'll try a few more ideas....


Update - 8/17

So, I've been working on my other Wild OTK Paladin decks....I think this one ranks 2 out of 3 at the moment.  Here are my current changes.  Still under 50%.  I haven't played many games with this version yet.  I'll post any new info.

- Wickerflame Burnbristle, - Shrink Ray, + Stonehill Defender, + Giggling Inventor

I think Stonehill Defender is better than Wickerflame Burnbristle, and Giggling Inventor is better than Shrink Ray....though Shrink Ray did help me out a few times.....it may come back.

Here's the link to my second Emperor OTK Paly...this one uses Crystology rather than Call to Arms:


Coming soon....gotta try one with Call to Arms and Crystology, right??

Here it is:  https://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/1172438-emperors-call-to-crystology

Suggestions are welcome!!

Update - 9/18/18

- 1 Stonehill Defender, - 1 Giggling Inventor, + 1 Wickerflame Burnbristle, + 1 Prismatic Lens

This is the Wild OTK Paladin deck that I will focus on.  My other decks included Crystology both with and without Call to Arms.  This deck is just better.  Call to Arms is better here than Crystology.  I may try one Crystology here in the future.

So again the premise of this deck is to cycle thru your cards to get your combo pieces.  (Against aggro....forget the combo and play Control Style Paladin.)  The reason to run Wild is for Emperor Thaurissan.  Use him to discount at least one Blackwald Pixie and/or horsemen.

Wickerflame Burnbristle is not necessary -- he helps against aggro, but I think Prismatic Lens can be really good.  Obviously there is a little RNG with that card. 

I still think Solemn Vigil is great (maybe only run 1 with Lens?)  Also, the Dirty Rats (by themselves) have won me many games vs Druids and other combo decks. 

Not sure what to change to improve this deck.  I may add another Prismatic Lens.  Right now I'm 40-38 at Ranks 10-8.

Update - 10/13/18

- 2 Plated Beetles, + Crystalsmith Kangor, + Stonehill Defender

Still at 50% 55-55 at Ranks 10-8.  (I'm trying other decks too).  This list is still my favorite Wild OTK Paladin. 

Who needs Plated Beetles when you have Crystalsmith Kangor and Wickerflame Burnbristle hanging around?  We still have 9 targets for Call to Arms.  Also, I think one Prismatic Lens is good.  One Giggling Inventor seems right too.

I play on mobile so I don't have any videos, but here's an interesting match against Control Warlock.  He burned my Prismatic Lens and pulled out Zola the Gorgon.  I know I could have played it a little better, but I still pulled out the win.


Thanks for checking.  Good luck!!!


Update - 10/18/18 - Boomsday Nerf

Trying the obvious:  - Giggling Inventor, + Shrink Ray

Let's see how it goes....


Update - 11/19/18

- Shrink Ray, + Mindbreaker

Running at Rank 5 now, (got there w/ a different deck).  Winrate is below 50% now.  Gotta try something else....

Let's face it, Shrink Ray is a little slow.  You could run weapon removal, but I think Mindbreaker is awesome against most early game matchups....and it's unexpected.  Plus it helps this deck curve out much better.  I may take out Wickerflame Burnbristle or the Prismatic Lens for a 2nd one.

Let me know if you have any questions in the comments.  Good Luck!

Update - 12/4/18 - Rastakhan's Rumble

- Wickerflame Burnbristle, -Mindbreaker, - Prismatic Lens

+ Flash of Light, +2 Time Out!

Let's try some new cheap cards to help this deck out.  Time Out! helped me win my first match easy.  Currently Rank 9.  I'll try to keep updating this.  Thanks for checking!


Update - 12/6/18

-Dirty Rat, + High Priest Thekal

Trying out the High Priest.  I don't think he's mandatory though. 


Update - 12/10/18

- Blackwald Pixie, + Flash of Light

Trying this out.  Trading card draw for extra OTK options, if that makes sense.


UPDATE - 12/15/18

-2 Stonehill Defenders, - Flash of Light, + Dirty Rat, + Doomsayer, + Blackwald Pixie

21-17 so far at Ranks 10-9.  This is my current version.  I was running Potion of Heroism, but I think Flash of Light is better.  I think Doomsayer is good right now.  I still like using 2 Blackwald Pixies, but you could run Bloodmage Thalnos, another Doomsayer or some other tech card.  Maybe Golakka Crawler?

Let me know if you have any specific questions.  This deck has evolved, but it's essentially using the same old strategy.  There are a few more ways to finish with that extra Blackwald Pixie, but Emperor Thaurissan can cause plenty of issues.  Good Luck!!

UPDATE - 12/26/18

35-27 right now at ranks 10-5.  I made the following change recently which helped me rise a little above 50% win percentage.

- High Priest Thekal, + Shirvallah, the Tiger

High Priest Thekal is ok, but useless in the late game.  Shirvallah, the Tiger is almost always good in the late game.  We lose the nice 3-drop, but I think this is better.


UPDATE - 1/4/19

- Doomsayer, + High Priest Thekal

Not sure which is better here.  This is fighting for the 30th card in the list imo.


UPDATE - 3/26/29!!

- Righteous Protector, - Truesilver Champion, - Equality, +2 Molten Giants, + Shrink Ray

Finally hit Legend!!  Since we have High Priest Thekal, let's add the Molten Giants.  Also, I put in one Shrink Ray since Equality got nerfed.

Good Luck Everyone!!!
