    Michael or Paul?

    Seriously though, I got her but don't have enough runes to level her up enough to be competitive in the new event.

    Are more important the cards you have to play with her, that the level.

    And of course,  both.

    Deck ideas?

    Yeah that would be nice.
    First one I tried is garbage. I'll have to keep experimenting with her.

    Here's the 1st deck I came up with and it plays well (and wins often) but I feel it still needs tweaking (Card rarity in parentheses):

     

    CREATURES - 3

    Visionary Augmenter (U) - cheap 4/3 creature with Fabricate (2)

    Glint-Sleeve Artisan (C) - cheap 2/2 creature with Fabricate (1)

    Glory-Bound Initiate (R) - cheap 4/4 that will ultimately generate life for you

     

    SPELLS - 4

    Dunes of the Dead (U) - a quick and easy 2/2 Zombie

    Renewed Faith (U) - Life Gain if you can't keep up

    Prophetic Prism (C) - Card Draw and convert 1 gem to white

    Declaration in Stone (R) - Creature removal

     

    SUPPORTS - 3 

    Cast Out (U) - Lock Down his Creatures

    Corrupted Grafstone (R) - Generate lots of White Gems

    Hixus, Prison Warden (M) - Additional Lock Down of Creatures

     

    As noted, in the daily Training Grounds event, this deck wins all 4 rounds easily.

     

    Deck improvements are welcome and appreciated.

    Well incredible as it might sound I think you should take Hixus out of your deck ...

    With Gem Conversion generated by the Grafstone, Hixus will not survive long. Also it has a bad synergy with Cast Out because if you have locked a creature with the latter it will be enabled if you play Hixus and it breaks.

    I think Gideon's Defeat with its two shieds is a better choice for your deck (or the less effective but uncommon Sandblast)

    I would also suggest two other replacements : Dunes of the Dead by a creature with more impact than a 2/2 with no additional ability, and Prophetic Prism by Forsake the Wordly which will provide support disruption (it seems everyone plays Omniscience now...) and can be cycled away for 1 if you need another card

    I have realized that Elspeth is practically made for Pyromancer's Goggles.

    Activate her ultimate when you have ONLY Ascension of the Second Sun as the only spell in your deck to see why.

    Her only drawback in this case is that her Support limit is rather low (5), which means a Goggle+Ascension combo will require you to have 4 creatures in your deck, not exactly advisable against Bolas.

    Also, I'm also having ideas of making a creatureless deck with her using the Goggles, Ascension, then add things like Fumigate and Skywhaler's Shot. That probably will instantly be the most annoying deck when the AI gets infinite mana out of it.

    If it means anything, with the guilds set she is almost unbeatable with the right setup. Having to tweek against god pharaoh but looking good with divine visition and March of multitudes

    I think she's overrated. I got her because of the event and there's been some positive reviews but aside from having good colour bonuses I've found her performance lackluster.

    Soldier Tokens and second ability are unreliable by themselves but then the third only enables these; it's like they were trolling when designing her. Catch 22 in Planeswalker form, basically. 

    I haven't leveled her fully I'll admit, but right now I feel like I was taken for a ride by this event requiring her for one of the Nodes. I win easily with Gideon and wish I'd saved my currency.
