3. Comments On The Variation

This variant uses the powerful openings of Prince Keleseth Tempo Rogue decks and adds in additional Elemental synergies to add powerful tempo plays all the way into the late-game.

This Elemental variant follows the same early-game strategy as other Keleseth Tempo Rogue decks and aims to play Prince Keleseth in combination with Shadowsteps as early as possible. The rest of the early-game uses cheap Pirates in combination with Southsea Captain to dominate the board.

This variant comes into its own in the mid-game, using Fire Plume Phoenix and SI:7 Agent as sources of direct damage that can be used to kill opponents minions or burn down opponents directly. The additional direct damage continues into the late-game, with Blazecaller which can be used to kill larger opposing minions or as a final source of burn damage.

This variant lacks some of the more common burst damage sources like Leeroy Jenkins and Cold Blood, which makes it even more important to maintain board control to maximise damage and to take full advantage of the additional damage available from Fire Plume Phoenix and Blazecaller.

3.1. Pros and Cons

This variant has extra tempo tools available that make it much easier to dominate the board and overwhelm opponents, however the lack of consistent burst damage can make it very hard to win if an opponent is able to get into a strong board position.

3.2. Quick Mulligan Guide

You should primarily be looking for Prince Keleseth in your opening hand due to the huge strength in adds to the deck, especially against slower opponents.

Against more aggressive opponents it is more important to have a solid curve of cards and should keep a 1-Mana play such as Swashburglar or Fire Fly to contest the early-game board.

If you already have Prince Keleseth you can additionally look for Shadowstep to combine with it to provide an even stronger boost to your minion.
