Information

My edit of Makash's 0 cost Unleash [screens inside]

Notable different cards:
Journey Guide - Enables an infinite combo with units other than Sand Warrior.
Alhed Ascending - A great unleash target, and a good midrange dude.
Sandstorm Titan - Not great synergy with the deck, but a necessary good card.
maindeck Xenan Obelisk and 4 Amaran Armadillo - These are the board buffs for the combo. Obelisk is good enough for the maindeck with all the cheap units.
market Valley Whisperer - We have 10 market access, so we find it faster from the market.
market Grodov's Burden - This acts as a board buff for the combo. Exalted lets the combo stack infinite stats instead of just filling the board. It's also a good midrange win condition.
market Scourstone Sentinel - Generally requires a SST to bond it out, but the bond ability makes for more flexible Whisperer combos. We can go infinite with a single Journey Guide, or sometimes just play a few large sentinels to win or stabilize.
Emblem of Grodov - This draws the unit, so it triggers Armadillo. It's a unit to complete the combo on demand, with the benefit of exalted stacking.

Our 3 combo pieces are:
Board buff - 8 maindeck, 1 market
Whisperer - 1 market with 10 market access
Sand Warrior or Journey Guide - 8 maindeck

Overall, this version of the deck gives up some ramping speed in exchange for more combo reliability and a more credible midrange plan.

The deck is too slow and the combo key cards often gets shut down by removals / silence and thats usually a gg. Also too few answers to flyers and big units in general. Out of my 5 runs so far i died to flyers 3 times, once i lost bc of got snowballed on board and once bc of mana flood. Not even once i got close to boss.

Worth to note i have high mmr in gauntlet so the decks im facing are better than what you might face at low master.
Makash Eternal Version: 22.06.08
Since you are mainly having problems against big units and/or flyers, you might want to consider Sandstorm Scarf in the Market and either Desert Alchemist or Scorpion Wasp in the main deck.
Scarf atleast gives you the oportunity to fight on the ground, tha's where the decks power is at.
Alchemist and Wasp both offer ambush deadly, so are most likely to take out big threats when attacking. Alchemist should be taken when also using Scarf, whereas Wasp can be chosen to not be reliant on scarf.
psly4mne Eternal Version: 22.06.08
Scarf is a good fix. I have never needed the Turn Back Time in the market, so there's room to play around there. The Ark of Sol also rarely comes up, but I keep it around because it's free money when it does.
psly4mne Eternal Version: 22.06.08
You generally don’t want to expose Whisperer to removal, you hold it until you’re ready to go off. If you’re behind against big units or flyers, you might need to grab the Gnash or Burden from the market first.
Csapasd Edited Eternal Version: 22.06.08
I'm mainly talking about how the 3 health units like Amaran Armadillo, Journey Guide and Javan, the Steel Crest are vulnerable to torch, extract, purify and cheap relic weapons. Also Gnash wasn't a big help againts a turn 4 Silverwing Familiar +Mantle of Justice or when your opponent only play cheap flying units and grid your hp while you wait sandstorm titan or a market card.
psly4mne Eternal Version: 22.06.08
That is true, 3 health units are vulnerable and suited up Silverwing is a pain. I've had success with Kickflip Monk in other decks for those reasons, might be good here too.
coandco Eternal Version: 22.06.08
I've actually had some amount of success running this in Throne, not just Gauntlet.
psly4mne Eternal Version: 22.06.08
I’m not surprised, it feels like it has potential. You’d want to make some adjustments, like market void hate. Maybe Pause For Reflection main to keep up with the tempo.
coandco Edited Eternal Version: 22.06.08
Journey Guide is so good here. I love both versions of the deck, but this feels significantly more powerful.
Makash Edited Eternal Version: 22.06.08
obviously a thumbs up from me ;)

personally i dont find that Javan is necessary. i cut him from my deck too. In this one i would swap him for Tocas.

Edit: I just found that Battlefield Chanter and Baying Serasaur are quite interesting. Especially Battlefield Chanter when comboed with Journey Guide will give infinite buffs, if for example the board is full and keeping to sacrifice himself for a new copy
abbaabbaabba Eternal Version: 22.06.08
Why don't you two (i.e. Makash, psly) like Living Example ?
Makash Eternal Version: 22.06.08
it ruins Sand Warrior. It buffs Sand Warrior to 4/4 which would kill the 0 cost combo.
psly4mne Eternal Version: 22.06.08
So far I’ve been happy with Javan. His draw ability has been solid when I stall out. More ramp would be a fine choice too.

I don’t think you want to play otherwise bad cards that are good when you fully combo. Alhed, Emblem, Armadillo, and Burden already fill that role well.
Makash Eternal Version: 22.06.08
Oh i dont use Tocas only for the ramp, with him on the board the enemy does stupid plays, like when it has some unit buff in hand and attacks, then figures it cant be played, that on its own gives a nice advantage (especially gainst the fire and justice decks)
psly4mne Edited Eternal Version: 22.06.08
I've played with Tocas some more and I'm sold, particularly for the ability to twist to turn on Obelisk. Still playing with the numbers a bit, I might cut 1-2 Qirin/Expert.
