Thanks for the deck !
I didn't really know what to play in Throne on a budget, and this is the one that seemed to fit my playstyle.
I played it in the Throne Open to a decent 15-13, with only a couple different cards in the market.
Didn't win a single match against the 4 Slings I met however. I probably didn't play very well against it but I still think it's a tough match-up.
Against other midrange, it's gold. Touch of battle is great there and the game usually ends with the one-sided wipe.
Against aggro, well it's obviously really hard on a slow start, which can randomly happen... High variance matchs.
I met many different control decks too. We should be able to put constant pressure due to our draws. Jarrall is key as it allows for direct damaging and some burst with berserk. I have a Valiant in the market too, which is good at closing games, especially with charge...
I'm not very experienced in Eternal, please take this into consideration !

Hi! Glad to hear you did OK with it! I hadn't updated it for Revelations, but good cards are still good. :P

If you're finding difficulty with the Sling match-up, I would certainly try some Mandatory Recruitments to bring the Sling down to size. Though Impound was a pretty clean answer previously, with Obstructive Flicker now being popularly played, it's not as tidy as it used to be, so some additional pieces of relic interaction would be helpful.

Aggro can generally be a rough match-up for Even decks in general, just because you're made to play off-curve. I've found Cover from the Storm to be a very helpful sweeper to shore me up from behind - it won't be the fastest of draws from aggro, but it's certainly solid, and being damage based, works well with Touch of Battle as well. I did finally craft my Boom, Snookie Pookies, and they're solid for this match-up as well.

In terms of Valiant Guardian: I think it's certainly a solid option, but I am concerned with how often you get to 8 power in the deck. That being said, giving it Charge with Grafter is very nice indeed.

I'll update the decklist shortly with what I think would be good updates for the deck with Revelations. Untested, but feel free to give it a whirl.

Alternatively, if you've enjoyed out-valuing people with Jarrall and Wump and just playing Elysian in general, the odd version curated by the CSB-ET Super Conglomerate seems really strong. The decklist I've linked below:
https://eternalwarcry.com/decks/d/EgNVQZFoFaQ/netscapenavigators-decklist-top-16

A couple of rares you might need to craft, but certainly a solid option.

Thanks again for playing the deck, and may you have the best of luck in figuring out what build works for you! ^-^

Unfortunately I think there's too few hits for Jarrall to be effective in the deck (I think over 5 games I hit 0 times and I drew Jarrall most games ).
stormguard798 Eternal Version: 21.03.23
Oh noses! I agree that it's certainly not as effective in this deck as it is in say, Elysian Spells, but 25 hits isn't anything to sneeze at. Honestly, it's more of a pay-off for being heavy Primal more than anything else - if you're super heavy on 1 faction, I think you'd need a good reason not to run that member of the Ascending Cycle (other than Clodagh, ofc.) rather than the other way around. I guess that does beg the question: what would be a better 2 drop in this position? Desert Alchemist is fine, but Jarrall's ceiling is just so high that I don't think it's worthwhile to make that swap.
