Information

So basically the idea here is that Preserver of Dualities is actually insane at creating tokens for Xenan Obelisk, and a lot of the radiants synergize with a token playstyle as well. Mitotic Wisp was added to reduce the cost of all the radiants you're running (which starts to get insane), but her ability to draw an Azindel, Revealed or any other radiant of your choice is very powerful. I will go over each of the radiants and discuss their inclusion:

Preserver of Dualities - The main piece of the deck. It can easily function without her, but she creates so many disposable tokens for Obelisk that it becomes hard to outvalue you.

Dawnwalker - Dawnwalker is a very aggressive minion and a great body for this deck. On top of this, he can be brought back quite easily with Obelisk.

Duskwalker - This card lets you highroll extremely hard into Azindel turn 4 (Initiate > Merchant > Duskwalker + Initiate > Azindel) or an early Reaper. He can also activate Obelisk a few turns earlier than usual, which creates a lot of pressure.

Umbren Reaper - This card is amazing when you are playing a more aggressive deck like tokens. Not only do they have to deal with him immediately because of his high attack stat, his entomb once they do gives you essentially a free attack with him as well as a nice life boost. It surprised me, but overall this has been one of the best units in the deck.

Azindel, Revealed - his art is cool

edit: I wrote an article on this deck for team TGP. It can be found here!

I've edited the description to include a link to the full write-up I did about this deck. If you're interested, the article can be found here on TGP's website. I hope you find it useful!

While the initial decklist I posted is definitely strong when it works and a ton of fun, there are some very obvious problems with it. I am actually planning on writing more in depth about this deck later on, but for now, I am testing a bunch of changes trying to find the optimal list. Currently, I am sure of Vara's Choice being included as we need a way to deal with late game units. The bounce is also very good when attached to a silence since they lose a lot of value for replaying it and we get an opening to attack. I am also testing a Xenan Banner in the market over carnosaur (I'm not sure if this is the right card to replace), which I am now confident will be staying. Finally, I am using Lunar Magus in the 3 drop slot (not replacing any other 3 drops) to give the deck more defense against aggro decks as well as patching up our vulnerability to overwhelm units (we run a lot of low health cards). Lunar Magus is a unit I have not played extensively in this list, so I will wait to add it to the main post until further testing. I hope this helps your success with the deck!

THIS DECK IS WONDERFUL!!! 100,000,000 stars! Agreeably no tier 1 performance, but tier 0 for fun! Thank you!

I'm a simple man; I see Umbren Reaper, I hit like & subscribe. Though it sucks to play any deck that's insta-lose to Temporal Control.

EDIT: About a 30% winrate at masters. Insta-lose to anything with Harsh Rule or Hailstorm, really bad against any deck that plays any sort of removal or face aegis (due to relying on unit-ability combos) and also pretty badly matched up against other midrange decks since your units are pretty badly statted for their cost. The deck relies too heavily on a single card (Preserver of Dualities) for tokens. It's fun when it works, but most of the time it simply doesn't.

I've had success against temporal so far. It's a somewhat difficult deck to play, but if you pace your threats and use nightfall efficiently to keep a full hand, then you can actually get through all their harsh rules (unless they draw all 8 or something crazy).

I've been playing some Mitotic Wisp decks. Have you considered running some more radiants, maybe a couple one-ofs just to tutor with the Wisp? Soulbringer has been really impressive for me, although I've been playing some Pathlighters and a few other wisps. I've also loved having Lumen Defender as a one-of in the deck for situations when I get a fetch off Mitotic Wisp and just really need to gain some life urgently. I also think you might want some removal maindeck in the current meta for decks such as Haunting Scream. I've been running 3 Annihilate and 1 Banish.

Possibly, but in my experience, the Sandstorm Scarf in market has been enough.
