    I think if you're going Aelf you actually still want to run Lord Castellant since his beast synergy is great. A Lord Veritant is also an option as the token wizard. The ability to play beasts let's you offset some of the liability of not having a blue card in hand for him.

    The Aelf deck has a fair few decent beasts - Allopex, Leviadon and You'd probably still run Star Drake because it's one of the fastest most efficent damage dealers in the game with bonus removal)

    I'd look at something liek the following:

    Heroes:
    Castellant
    Lotann
    Isharaan Soulrender
    Lord Veritant

    Blessings:
    Last Lament
    Tides of Death
    Penant of Sigmaron
    Abjuration

    Units:
    3 x Star Drake
    3 x Leviadon
    2 x Biovoltaic Guard
    2 x Swift Reaver
    2 x Enraged Allopex
    2 x Barrier Guard
    2 x Sweeping Thrall
    2 x Soul Feeder

    Spells
    3 x Seeker of Souls
    3 x Light of Sigmar

    Abilities:
    3 x Triumphant Smash
    3 x Jaws of Death

    Will definitely try some of these. Finished my first booster box and got to pull a lot of Aelf and beasts :smile:

    I hope that we'll get more cards with the next set. I kinda like the idea behing the Aelfs

    I wanna run pure deepkin too!
  • Lotann is a huge add to this deck. His synergy with the elves is very strong and adds a lot of damage to an already high damage deck.

    Aelves are my favourite - really hope they bring out more cards so I can make a pure Aelf deck
  • is it just me or does it seem like deepkin are rarer pulls?

    I've gotten every campaign deck + a full booster box, so despite 28 booster packs, my collection is really limited

    Deepkin does feel limited. I aggressively traded my destruction cards for them, made some people very happy ;)

    Well if you go for the beast/lotann route, I think you want celestial Prime, to fix your draws. Otherwise you might not get the race you need at the right time
