Information

Roshi the Entrancer, at least to some at first glance, appeared to be one of the weaker heroes of the cycle. Since I love underdogs, I feel like it's my job to build a deck that makes him worth playing. I decided to go for more of a midrange-tempo build with stuns and aegis, big blockers, and killer elves. Let's see how it's done.

Units:
Crown Patroller - A 1-drop that plunders. Basic stuff. Get your fixing in early.
Frostbite Elemental, Maveloft Huntress - This pair does big work early. If you don't have stuns to work on for turn 3 to activate your elemental, imbue the huntress to it and attack away. A turn 3 6/6 killer attack is nothing to sneeze at.
Yojimba, Ghostblade - At best, it's a card drawing engine that hits hard. At worst, it's a 0/6 blocker for 3.
Roshi the Entrancer - Imbues one of your units and one of your opponent's. He can singlehandedly tilt the board in your favor.
Torgov, Icecap Trader - A Jekk-proof unit that draws cards. I'm told that's good.

Support:
Bubble Shield, Silverblade Intrusion, Cleansing Rain - Protection for your side of the board.
Valiant Leap - Neat combat trick. Revenge is nice, too.

I am intrigued. What are you looking for in an opening hand? I'm also finding the deck in a bit of no man's land, where it is slow to get going, but doesn't have a big top end if it stalls out

You're not wrong, and I'm open to suggestions.
As for an opening hand, I just look for something with a decent curve. Huntress or Elemental (or both if you're lucky) and at least two power. This hasn't really been refined yet. I have changes to it that I haven't posted yet.

edit: posted current list. still open to suggestions if you've got 'em.

I'm not much of a brewer; I swapped Staff of Stories for Helio, the Skywinder. I've also swapped out Crown Patroller for Transpose, and put Mantle of Justice, Rain of Frogs, Wasteland Broker, Copperhall Chancellor, and Uelo, Sky Tactician.

After playing about 8 games with this, I just don't think it'll work. Let me know if you have success with the shell tho, it's an interesting idea

But that might be too controll-y of a market
