Elysian Midrange (FoX Gauntlet 48-1)

Gauntlet Deck By


Cost Curve




This is the first deck that has performed well for me in Flame of Xulta Masters Gauntlet, going 48-1 with boss wins against Company of Exiles, Highly Skilled, Mindless Aggression x2, Defender of the Spire and Power of Progress, and a close loss against Sudden Death which had the play (of course).

Of the new cards, Borderlands Lookout helps stabilize early against aggro, while sometimes managing to trade 2 for 1 against 3+ faction decks. I'm not 100% sold on the card in this style of midrange deck but it pulled its weight in enough matchups that I'll keep it.

Sodi's Spellshaper has been incredible in terms of adding card advantage, removal and tempo to the deck. The only question is whether to run 4 main or 3 main, 1 market.

Ila & Mizo has been a welcome addition to the deck. Endurance is such a powerful keyword in gauntlet, and it plays very well with killer (the new copy from Mastery gets it). I'm fairly comfortable with the 2/1 split. I wouldn't cut copies of Cirso under any circumstances (except lack of shift stone as a new player).

I think the market could use more work. I'm confident in Xenan Initiation, Elysian Banner, and Cirso's Choice (wipes tokens or Pigs that try to mass block Cirso). Ila & Mizo has been a decent threat out of the Market. Mystic Ascendant I only pulled once in 35 games so that should likely be swapped for something else (Carnosaur, Accelerated Evolution are possible.)

The power base feels about right, it's possible we could cut 1 Time sigil and still curve out a high enough percentage, but removal on our +1 maximum power units can hurt our gameplan and having 27 actual power with 12 sigils helps hit undepleted seats.

Any replacements for Cirso? Dont feel like crafting 4 since hes so niche these days

In that case, you might try 4 Ila & Mizo main, and maybe 2 Champion of Wisdom. Then for the Market Ila & Mizo just sub in a 5 drop that you have. Could try Alhed, the Mount Breaker, Worldbearer Behemoth, on Twinbrood Sauropod on a budget.

This is a good deck.

I like false prince for some reason the AI doesnt seem to understand that it could ping it into a frog, so its just a cheap good stat unit!

Ila and Mizo are great gauntlet picks too it seems.

The best gauntlet decks in my experience have been

Kere Be Kairos or Kazed Karios Peaks - or

Mono Shadow Gaunlet -

Banished Surveyed Xenan -

Ill keep trying yours out, I admit that since I dont have Cirso I cant be a good judge of it!
