The damage is being applied, but Main Attack is gonna show higher LCS numbers b/c it deals 100% weapon damage, whereas Bladestorm only deals 35% (flat Elemental damage is affected by a skill's WDM). Additionally, your buffs won't boost flat Elemental damage, so LCS will only show a negligible damage increase when, say, Moonstrike is active.

MoA orbs on your weapon and Mana Regen orbs on jewelry would be the simplest solution.
Sustain is a bigger problem for the Elemental setup b/c you're doing so little Phys damage that you're hardly leeching any resources. So focus on LoA/MoA, LaeK/MaeK, and LoS/MoS rather than LL/ML.
