Another Wisp Deck because I'm obsessed

Information

I've always enjoyed the Wisp/Radiant archetype due to the efficient recursion and card advantage. Tasbu, the Forbidden ups the efficiency even further and was begging for some experimentation. Former iterations of this archetype that I've made have been focused almost entirely on giving wisps like Pathlighter, Weary Spiteling, and Entrancer killer using Xenan Initiation and Xenan Temple, pumping them with Void Drummer, and bringing them back with Soulbringer and Shadowlands Guide. But this time around, I'm leaning more heavily into the Radiant side of the synergy with Tasbu, the Forbidden and Shadowlands Tyrant.

Basic game plan:

1) Mulligan almost any hand that doesn't include a one-drop wisp. You can't really get the gears turning without them.

2) I prefer to lead with Entrancer on turn one due to the high probability of hitting a good target. Prefer Merchants over nearly any other card, if possible. Pathlighter is often better saved for turn two to attack on turn 3, especially if you have a merchant in hand to draw Soulbringer.

3) Land a Xenan Initiation on either Pathlighter or Weary Spiteling. I prefer to wait for the opponent to have no available power. Also, surprise is on your side, especially with Pathlighter. If it gets Torched, it doesn't grow, and is still vulnerable when you being it back. Waiting for 3 power to play the wisp and the buff on the same turn can prove useful.

4) Waiting for 6 power to combo Xenan Initiation or Devour with Soulbringer is higher value than playing him alone. Don't waste the tribute effect! Also, lean towards killing your wisps when the attack with killer instead of hitting a smaller unit so you can bring them back more easily.

5) Get Tasbu, the Forbidden out to add card draw to your killer removal tricks.

6) Eventually, your growing wisps and card advantage with you the game.

TIPS:

1) Mitotic Wisp's "entering the void trigger" is doubled by Xenan Temple, keep that in mind!

2)Azindel, Revealed is best saved for Mitotic Wisp's ultimate. So feel free to bottom it with Crest of Mystery so it's not dead in hand.

3) If facing a Justice deck, save your Banish for Adjudicator's Gavel.

4) Xenan Temple doesn't give you a free Rost, the Walking Glacier if you kill him, so don't be fooled.

If you want people to try your decks you should write a description of how to play them. While I'm sure that many players can look at the listing and know what your intentions are, I am equally certain that there are just as many who do not. If your unsure what to write then look at any of my most recent decks for an example :)

On a side note I haven't used a wisp deck since they added Tasbu, the Forbidden but that interaction looks fun! :D

Not every deck that is posted needs a detailed description. Some people like to share decks just for the sake of it. If you have questions regarding the deck, you can always just ask. But demanding time of someone for something that may have been done casually is not a fair thing to do. To restate what OP said, "Please be excellent to each other. Don't be rude."
MissClicksForDays Eternal Version: 1.46.10
Kinda rude, yes? If you look at my other postings, you'll see that I spent a great deal of time on the descriptions. However, I uploaded this deck on my phone while playing a few games in bed and figured the archetype is fairly well established at this point. I also intend to update the description once I sit down at a computer because typing all the link flags on a phone sounds horrible. I'm just not sure why someone would be so annoyingly judgy like this in a typically supportive community forum like Eternal Warcry... 😕

Stay tuned for an update today or tomorrow, and, in the words of our gracious site hosts, "Please be excellent to each other. Don't be rude."

Personally I didn't think it was rude to ask. Maybe people in your part of the world are just more sensitive? [edit I read that back an I have to wonder if you'll take offense at this question too. If you do then I'll just accept that we have a cultural divide.] I was simply asking that if you post a deck to the community then maybe you'd want to give them some way of interpreting how to use it. However it is good to know your intending to update it.

Oh and as for you Archer, do you go around white knighting often? Or are you new to jumping to the defence of people who probably don't need it?

I suppose when I got the email saying someone commented on my deck, I was excited to read something positive, or at least a thoughtful comment/suggestion, but instead was met with, essentially, "Yo, bro, your description sucks. You should be more like me and write good descriptions." I see now that your comment is mostly harmless, and if anything, just an effort to self-promote on another deck's comment page. Pretty benign and nothing to get upset about. We good.
