    This deck beats Sindragosa in the adventure.

      Stonehill Defender is pretty good in this deck. His health outweighing his attack makes him a better body when buffed. He also provides you another minion so that when you topdeck a handbuff card in the midgame, it’s not as bad because your handsize remains large. Also taunt is a small plus.

    Is this a standard or wild build? It’s not letting me use it on standard, just crafted it all…………

      It is a standard build. Works for all of us. Try restarting your hearthstone…

    Spikeridged Steed is a staple in almost Paladin build. It is the new ‘sledge belcher’ card for good reason.

    Does Tarim have any place in this deck alongside stuff like Vinecleaver or Lost in the Jungle? I got Tarim in a pack recently but don’t have Tirion Rag or Wickerflame, but lots of elementals. I also don’t want to try crafting Rag knowing he’ll rotate out in 4 months.

      First off, your assumption that Ragnaros, Lightlord will rotate out next *expansion* in 4-ish months is wrong. He’ll exit standard format at the next standard rotation, but that won’t be for another year. No cards will leave standard before the Year of the Mammoth ends.

      I don’t believe Tarim has a place in *this* handbuffing deck, as he most likely will end up lowering the stats on handbuffed minions. I also would not see how Vinecleaver and LitJ would fit this handbuff deck.

      If you want to use your Tarim and Vinecleaver in a deck, I’d recommend trying a midrange paladin deck. I think you can build it around an elemental shell (see additional tips below). It’s probably not as good as a ‘proper’ midrange/control paladin, but I understand you don’t want to commit (yet) to Tirion, Ragnaros and, potentially, Wickerflame.

      If, on the other hand, you *do* want to try Kolento’s elemental handbuff paladin deck as described here, but not having Wickerflame is holding you back, you could sub him with a Stonehill Defender; he provides taunt as well as giving you the option to discover another useful taunt. Another option is Mistress of Mixtures if you prefer the heal.

      Additional note: if you go for an elemental midrange build, Hydrologist and Golakka Crawler make for useful draws from the Curator (assuming you have Karazhan), and Blazecallers may work fine instead of Tirion and Ragnaros. Also, you have a decent chance of discovering Ragnaros, Lightlord from Servant of Kalimos.

      This is a bit of theorycrafting on my part though, so don’t spend resources on it if you don’t have them already, but it might be fun to try.

    Could Ozruk fit into this deck? I just played against an elemental shaman that dropped a 5/20 Ozruk on me and since this deck does not play hard removal, it stuck pretty hard.

    • Kyouma

      I don’t like really big bodies with no battlecry/deathrattle because one hard removal like Hex or Sap is a really good mana trade-off and you have to spend elemental activators to just give him 5 more health a piece.

    Can i replace Wickerflame for a Tirion?

    • Ulti Atlas
      May 6, 2017 at 5:14 pm

      No, i recommend you use Wickerflame as buffs on him work very good due to bonus heal per damage.

      stonehill defender is a nice replacement. that or the 3 drop ooze mabye

    Is there any good replacement of Blazecaller?

    • Velkymoss2239

      Not really

    • Cridn
      April 11, 2017 at 8:57 am

      No, blazecaller is one of the main reasons to chose the elemental way.
      Dont play thus tribe without the key cards, there is other ways to play buff pala

      Depending on how much dust and what cards you have at your disposal, I would recommend tirion fordring, grimestreet protector or possibly a grimestreet enforcer.

    • Ulti Atlas
      May 6, 2017 at 5:16 pm

      Use Doppelgangster. This is ONLY AND ONLY if you have no resources to craft or obtain a blazecaller

      Try MC tech

    • Spire96
      April 10, 2017 at 3:52 pm

      I am trying with the murloc that drops 2 cards from the deck and I think is better in the most of situations than mc tech

      Thunder lizard is a pretty good replacement

      Try Stonehill Defender. Not only is it a taunt minion itself, it gives you a higher chance of discovering a Paladin taunt minion, most of which are legendaries.

    Why Hydrologist?
    I’m considering running this left, subbing 1 Hydrologist for Ragnaros, Lightlord. Thoughts?

    • TheLawnNinja

      If you’re going to include Rag Lite, you probably don’t want to remove a 2 drop for an 8 drop. Not good for your curve. Hydrologist, in addition to filling out your curve, is surprisingly versatile. Being able to discover a secret that fits the current situation is way better than wasting slots by putting secrets in your deck. A clutch Noble Sacrifice can buy you an extra turn. A clutch Repentance can render a fat enemy taunt impotent. A clutch Eye For An Eye can win you the game. Hydrologist may seem ho-hum, but it’s actually a very useful card.

    • Darthpol
      April 10, 2017 at 7:40 pm

      You could try replacing one of the Grimestreet Enforcers with Rag. Of course you could also discover Rag through Servant of Kalimos.

      Spikeridged Steed? By far the worst card in the deck.
