Used this deck to climb from Diamond III to Masters right after the release of the new expansion. ( https://imgur.com/a/x1WYFl1 - last history of games. Didn't capture all of them, but got the achievement for winning 10 games in a row before with this deck. It's quite strong and I had a great success with it)
In the previous season I used a similar deck, but now we lost cards like Tasbu, the Forbidden
, Vishni, Lethrai Highblood
, Ebon Dune Smuggler
However, with the new expansion and the new expedition we got some interesting replacements and additions.
- good in a late game, can save us some life against aggro decks and still can be useful for attacks after becoming corrupted if we have the relic or Tavia on board.
- not the best card, but decent 3-drop with actually good ultimate for a late game.
- new addition to the Expedition format. Really powerful removal tool. Also quite relevant against some relic based decks.
- very good in a early game, also can buff our Bloodseeker
Overall the strategy is very simple:
Play early drops ( Bloodseeker
, Borderlands Lookout
, Lethrai Ranger
, etc );
Use Tavia, Lethrai Raidleader
and Sunset Stone
to buff your elves;
Use your removals to break through opponents units.
We have some decent late game by using Sunset Stone
's ability, playing Feartracker
and Incarnus, Makkar's Listener
and using Gravewatch Ancestor
I don't think that this is a perfect final build. I still haven't tested Damara, Deft Saboteur
(although not sure if she fits this deck in Expedition). Also didn't have a lot of problems with powerbase, but maybe there is still something to improve.
I hope this deck can help you. I do think that Xenan is quite strong in Expedition right now.
