Information

I have been looking at Elysian a little differently lately and trying to see what I could do with it to make it more fun and interesting. As I thought about it I realized Elysian isn't like Shadow or Justice. It's not about what you can do to the enemy units, it's about what you can do to your own. That's how I came up with this deck. This deck is all about giving strong units, often with some sort of recursion, abilities to help you win the game.

One of the biggest weaknesses with Snapping Brushstalker is that your opponent controls when you put it back into your hand so it can have a lot of negative card advantage. I found that this problem is mostly solved by giving Brushstalker charge via Accelerate, works especially well when coupled with endurance from Accelerated Evolution so he is ready to defend as well if the opponent doesn't have a spell. It's pretty scary to get charged in the face for 5 damage starting on turn 4. This also works incredibly well with killer. The recursion of Brushstalker is also good for recurring Dawnwalker. Sandstorm Titan is just a solid 4 drop with keywords that recurs Dawnwalker and is a solid Mirror Image target, especially with extra skills and buffs.

The deck has a lot of synergies and is pretty fun to run when it gets going. Let me know if you have any questions, comments, concerns, or just want to talk about the deck. I hope you have some fun with it!

if Accelerate is the mode of choice, might as well run some units that best capitalize off it like Jotun Feast-Caller, Worldbearer Behemoth Reliquary Raider

i also haven't been a fan of Lumen Reclaimer, even in the combo decks that might want it. unless you have a way to generate absurd card draw, flooding your deck with a bunch of 4/4's doesn't feel all that great.
Brettorious Eternal Version: 1.31.6
Feast caller and behemoth both seem like solid suggestions. Raider seems okay but I feel like she rarely generates that value I want. As for Lumen Reclaimer, the card says it shuffles copies of it back into your deck, so if you put killer, charge, endurance on it it should shuffle 4 copies of that into the deck. I've never actually pulled it off but that's my understanding lol.

I'll definitely try some feast caller and behemoth and maybe Reclaimer. Thanks for the suggestions!

This deck needs at least 20 units and I don’t like the 4 Charge spells. It doesn’t seem worth a slot.
Brettorious Eternal Version: 1.31.6
I agree that it needs more units. Thanks for your input.

Nice Idea.
I think it needs to run more Units. Two or three games i founded myself with lots of skill spells with no Units to apply them to.
Have added three Clockroaches , but still not working for the moment.

Will try it more
ZekeP Edited Eternal Version: 1.31.6
Have replaced the 3 Clockroaches with the 4th Titan and 2 Cirso. They are good with Killer ( Polymorph and Kill the unit ), but i am still having the issue with skills on the hand with no creatures to use them on. My current count of unit is 19.
Brettorious Edited Eternal Version: 1.31.6
Thanks for giving it a try.

That's definitely a fair criticism. This is just the first iteration, I will keep working on it to try to make it more consistent. Right now it's just a list I thought had potential and works okay. Next iteration I'll work on tuning it.

Thanks for the input!

Very interesting deck, I think your Brushstalker concept is really great!
I'm wondering why have you chosen to play Trailblaze instead of Strategize? Strategize looks deeper and lets you put away cards you don't need, which is essential to a combo deck like this one. You'll probably also want a fourth copy of Sandstorm Titan to trigger your Dawnwalkers (though I'm sure you knew that), perhaps instead of Lumen Reclaimer. This deck also seems like a good fit for Praxis Displacer, perhaps as an alternative to Polymorph.
I hope you find some ways to tune this deck and run with it, it looks really fun!
Brettorious Eternal Version: 1.31.6
You may have a point about Strategize, I'm just wary about that card because sometimes I make dumb decisions on what should go on the bottom of my deck and end up regretting it. I hate throwing cards away. The Sandstorm Titans are only a 3 of because I only have 3 of them lol. A fourth would be optimal but this is the list I had so it's what I put up. Displacer Could be good but I think I would rather have it as a sideboard card instead of a mainboard card. There are some cards that just need to be dealt with immediately.
Thanks for your input!
