Between this and the staple midrange pally deck. Which one is stronger?

Because I have all the cards on this (well, namely Mysterious Challenger) but I'm missing every epic on the other one.... coghammer, quartermaster and lay on hands... Will be a hefty craft so I want some more opinions before investing in. 
Thanks.

If I thought one was strictly stronger, I wouldn't have posted the other. Hearthstone doesn't really work like that where one deck is "just better", it's all about matchups, playstyles etc. I will say that this Mysterious Challenger deck is one of the most popular decks on ladder right now.

I have a question about the knife juggler + muster for battle combo. Often in games I wonder how crucial is to save knife juggler for this combo, for example if I have both of them in hand, should I usually wait till turn 5 to play them? Often times there is nothing else that I could play on turn 2,3 or 4 and I feel forced to use one of those combo pieces. Usually when I play knife juggler on turn 2, it gets removed before I can play muster on turn 3.

If you have no other plays, you should just play out your curve, you need to maintain pressure as much as possible.

thank you

Which card to replace Tirion (Lanister ohoh) if we don't have it ?

what do you think about replacing the harvest golem with 1 aldor peacekeeper. the golem rarely seems to work out well and when it comes out late game, it's typically a weak play. I seem to face either a lot of aggro or big late game minions that make this about a 50% win rate for me. I know part of that's on me, but the tech of aldor seems to trouble opponents much more than golem.

I'm finding that by turn 6/7 if I haven't drawn into Mysterious Challenger, I run out of cards in my hand from playing on curve.

 

It could just be bad draws or mulligans but is anyone else experiencing similar to this?

 

This happens in about 1 in 5 games which I guess isn't too bad. Any ideas on something in the deck to swap out for Divine Favor?

Hi Scarlett, I found the same issue as you. I also find that drawing Mysterious Challenger at the right time can be really inconsistent - sometimes I don't draw it by turn 6, and sometimes I don't see it at all in a game, regardless of whether or not I have enough other cards.

 

Disclaimer: I've only been playing a few months so a. I'm not very good (rank 13 with this deck) and I don't have a choice of legendaries.

 

To ensure that I do get enough cards, I've included one Divine Favour and this has really helped. I swapped this for Competitive Spirit as I found that 9/10 times  this card is junk. I have found Divine Favour is really useful against Warrior, Priest (esp. Dragon) and Mage. 

 

I have also included a Sludge Belcher, and repalced the Trusilvers with Coghammers to make my deck a bit more sticky. I was finding that with Sottle's roster (I don't have Dr Boom) I was getting beaten by both control and by aggro too much, so I have tried to make my deck more sticky.

 

The way I play is to control for the first 5 or so turns, then try to burst with M Challenger, or get a Murlock Knight to stick on turn 6 (perhaps with a Sludge already down), or if the situation right, play the Avenging Wrath which I have included. If these don't work (which is often) you probably have your divine favour ready, and if you put enough pressure out early on Tirion can win it for you - especially if you can play him with Redemption which is an awesome combo!

 

I just played a game against a pally running Sottle's aggro secrets deck. He played a Secretkeeper on turn 1 and this f'd me as I couldn't play any secrets! As Redemption is extremely situational, I've decided to just include 1 in my deck and replace with a Secretkeeper myself to give me more options on turns 1/2/3.

 

Again, I'm not a good player so take this with a pinch of salt, but hope it helps. If you have any tips please share them with me!

Yeah honestly, if you don't draw into Challenger by turn 6, you should have at least hit SOMETHING dominant, Murloc Knight, Boom, Tirion etc. I don't think the deck is in need of card draw at all.

It's only the rare occasions where I'm sitting there with 1 or 2 cards in my hand thinking, "I wish I had Divine Favor or some kind of card draw".

 

I managed to reach Legend with the aggro/rush variant of this secret Paladin before people learnt to play around it. I'm encountering more skilled players now who are able to play around the aggro/rush version. They don't expect this midrange version and use silences on my Knife Juggler, Murlock Knight, or other sticky minions, leaving them with no answer to Tirion.

 

This is why I like this midrange version better. It doesn't only rely on MC as a win condition but instead uses it to apply pressure to the opponent. I had a choice of removing Haunted Creeper, Blessing of Kings, or Harvest Golem for one Divine Favor. I decided to leave the sticky minions and take out Blessing of Kings.

 

In saying this, I have only played 5 games with the included Divine Favor where it has had no value since I've been up against aggro decks.

 

It's fun to experiment!

Not having Dr. Boom and Tirion Fordring, may I have your thoughts on replacements from the following:

 

Kel'Thuzad,

Ragnaros,

Alexstrasza,

 

or other replacements if some or all of these three are poor choices.

 

Thank you for providing so many decks, and especially for including clearly written explanations on strategies, inclusions, Mulligans, swaps, etc.

The deck is heavily countered by Hunters. Might give an anti Hunter deck another view now as ladder won't get rid of that pest.

You definitely should not be playing Mad Scientists, they're really bad in this deck.

There does seem to be a lot of these Paladin secret / Mysterious Challenger decks in the meta at the moment - considering temporarily swapping in a Kezan Mystic into my shammy deck, and maybe a flare into my hunter deck till the craze subsides!

      Doom in the Tomb is now live and the update comes with all-new 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards and 23 cards that are temporarily stepping out of Wild back into Standard. Note that the cards will remain in Standard until the next major update and exact end dates and times will be announced in the weeks ahead.
      Blizzard (Source)
      A new Hearthstone update has just arrived, featuring the “Doom in the Tomb” Hallow’s End event, Wild cards temporarily returning to Standard, portrait rewards for dedicated Hearthstone players, and much more!
      New Event - Doom in the Tomb!

      Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum’s deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues! The new Doom in the Tomb event starts today, October 8, and will last until October 30. Here’s what’s in store:

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1
      Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum! The clock is running, too – race to set the record for the fastest Temple run! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and earn a Rastakhan’s Rumble Card Pack. Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2
      E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed. New enemies and challenges await!

      Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy
      Week 3: The Haunted Carousel
      Get ready for the big mix-up! In this Tavern Brawl, you’ll need to strategize around minions constantly rotating board positions – all while controlling the Horseman’s time-shifted Dreadsteeds!

      Rewards Summon 100 Dreadsteeds to earn a Rise of Shadows Card Pack Dual-Class Heroes

      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s Eve dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, anyone who logs in during each of the first two weeks will receive one Arena Ticket per week! This event coincides with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation are as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle
      If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle
      Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Standard Shake-Up

      Starting with today’s patch and lasting until our next major update, 23 cards from across Hearthstone history are temporarily stepping out of Wild and back into Standard. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards you'll still receive these event copies, and when the event ends they'll disappear.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.
      Card List: Druid: Astral Communion Kun the Forgotten King Mage: Babbling Book Flamewaker Paladin: Mysterious Challenger Avenge Hunter: Lock and Load Call of the Wild Shaman: Evolve Thing from Below Rogue: Shaku, the Collector Swashburglar Priest: Lightbomb Vol'jin Warlock: Imp Gang Boss Renounce Darkness Warrior: Varian Wrynn Bloodhoof Brave Neutral: N'Zoth, the Corruptor Sylvanas Windrunner Ragnaros the Firelord The Curator Emperor Thaurissan 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards

      The time has come for dedicated Hearthstone players to flex their Hero mastery! We’re introducing new portraits earned by achieving 1,000 Ranked or Arena wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals.

      Blizzard today announced a new event coming to the game on October 8. It's called Doom in the Tomb. Check out what's in store for Hearthstone this month!
      UPDATE
      Placeholder for tweet 1180177096972222464 Blizzard (Source)
      Legends have told of dangers lurking within the Haunted Temple of Uldum and the grand ancient treasures they conceal. Of course, “treasure” was all anyone had to mention to get Reno and Rafaam on board, and now their sights are set on acquiring the temple’s powerful artifacts for their own campaigns!
      It won’t be an easy task, though. While our Heroes and Villains battle to push deeper through the Haunted Temple, the Headless Horseman has resorted to a nefarious contingency and opened a sealed sarcophagus full of WILD terrors. Now it will be up to you to aid the conquests of good, or E.V.I.L, in a race to uncover the tomb’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the tomb!

      Step into the Haunted Tomb
      The spooky spelunking adventures begin at 10:00 AM PT on October 8 and end at 9:00 AM PT on October 30 – three weeks packed full of new activities to participate in:

      Unique Tavern Brawls

      23 cards from across Hearthstone history have been unsealed from Wild and unleashed by the Headless Horseman!

      Today we get a look at some of the smaller stuff coming up in Hearthstone's future, including new events like dual-class arenas, 23 old cards returning to standard (Ragnaros and N'zoth were mentioned), new class portraits for 1000 wins, and plenty of quality of life improvements!
      Behind the Doors (source)
      While we’re constantly recruiting lackeys, tinkering with experimental tech, and delving into dusty tombs to bring you new Hearthstone expansions and Adventures, we’re also hard at work on some awesome, albeit less flashy, new stuff. In this blog we’ll shine a light on some of the smaller, but still exciting new features, events, and changes coming to Hearthstone in the near future.

       
      Adding More Events

      After the overwhelmingly positive response to the recent Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. event, we’re looking for more opportunities to introduce even more large-scale in-game events with rewards, themed Tavern Brawls, and changes that could temporarily (or permanently!) create fun new Hearthstone experiences for players.
      We’re starting off with a new event in just a couple weeks featuring Dungeon Run-inspired Tavern Brawls, dual-class Arenas, Legendary quest rewards, and some meta-shifting changes outlined in the “Shaking up Standard Play” section below.
      We’ll have more to share on this sensationally spooky event on October 4, but in the meantime . . . try not to lose your head!
       

      Shaking up Standard Play

      Now that the Saviors of Uldum Standard ladder experience has solidified, we think it’s a great time to throw a wrench or two (or twenty-three) in the gears. We’re going to be pulling some of the most popular and game-changing cards from across Hearthstone history, including
      Ragnaros the Firelord and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, out of Wild and dropping them back into Standard for a limited time. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get them into the action.
      We’ll be sharing more details (including the full list of 23 cards) in a blog update on October 4. Stay tuned!

      1,000 Win Class Portraits
      Looking ahead, we want to continue celebrating personal successes and milestones for all you dedicated Hearthstone players. Our next major update will introduce some really cool new portraits that you can earn by earning 1,000 wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals. Take a look at a couple of examples below and start stacking up those wins!



      Quality of Life Improvements
       
      Alternate Search Terms
      We want it to be easier to quickly find the cards you’re looking for while deckbuilding, so we’re adding alternate search terms for some hard-to-type cards. We’ll be adding common misspellings and simplified versions of leetspeak card names (found on some Mech minions). For example, searching “snip” or “snap” will now show you SN1P-SN4P. While this feature will only be enabled for a few commonly misspelled cards at first, we’ll be able to add even more alternate search terms as needed.
      This feature will also support languages other than English. For example, SN1P-SN4P in Latin American Spanish is “CL1C-CL4C”, so searching “clic” would return the expected results. Quest Changes
      While not included in our next major update, here’s a preview of some of the changes we’re making to quests a little further down the line.
      We’re cutting some of the less popular daily quests and tuning down some of their requirements to make them quicker and easier to complete. We’ll also be adding some new quests to the pool to mix things up! We split most daily quests into two buckets: Easy (50g) and Slightly More Difficult (60g). Rerolling a Slightly More Difficult (60g) quest (like Play 10 Beasts) always gives you an Easy (50g) quest, so players can be guaranteed to get an Easy quest every day if they want. We love  Murlocs and Pirates as much as anyone, but it should be your choice if you decide to complete their quests.
      We’re excited to be bringing these new features, events, and other changes to Hearthstone soon. Please let us know what you think on social media or the official Hearthstone forums. Until then, we’ll see you in the Tavern!
