I wanna try this deck,

This deck looks awful lot like an arena deck. SpellshifterTuskarr Fisherman and Ancient Mage look awkward.

I know you guys probably tried this deck before you posted it here, but a better way to go for is to probably add tech cards like The Black Knight and Skulking Geist (until Dark Pact is nerfed at least). Primordial Drake can really help against all those paladins. Make it a control-ish deck. Also, Vanish might be a nice addition as some form of board clear.

Hi,

I certainly agree about the deck looking very much like an Arena deck.  I would argue most Odd/Even decks look that way due to the card restrictions and recent standard rotation greatly restricting the card choices available.

The deck itself is tried and tested and I understand your concern.  To address your concerns, The Black Knight does not fit into the style of the deck.  As it is a deck reliant on tempo, Sap does the job much better and if you want an additional way to push past Taunts then Spellbreaker is a better choice due to being able to push past a Voidlord.  As an Even deck, you want to be able to end the game by around turn 9, this in itself invalidates Primordial Drake as you will be positioning yourself to to end the game by the time it is playable.  However, Skulking Geist certainly work, although it is a bit slow. 

Despite being 6 weeks into the expansion, this deck is very new on the scene and as a result it is still very rough around the edges (think back to how Odd/Even Paladin decks first looked).  This deck is positioned to grow over time as more people try it and experiment with it.  So my advice for you right now would be to experiment with it!  Maybe you will find something everyone else has missed or you may simply develop a better understanding of why certain cards do not work.

I recommend at least giving it a try to at least get a feel for it and I wish you luck.
