Act of Aggression Discussion

PartyJ on Bad Luck Brion

It's a good looking deck and one I never encountered before. I really had to crack my thoughts as how to give you some solid suggestions. Here I go:

Hope I could have been of some help.

Good luck!

Thanks for the suggestions! Time to make a maybeboard then ...

@KALE434 : I'm not sure that I have enough artifacts to make Metalwork Colossus worthwhile. Endless One is a nice mana-to-P/T creature, so I might add it in later on. Thran Dynamo is indeed slightly too pricey.

@TheStig9382 : thanks for the suggestion of Grafted Exoskeleton, I had misinterpreted the infect mechanic :) I'll definitely add it in, as soon as I figure out what to take out of the deck :p In regards to Act of Aggression: I already added in quite a few similar cards, but I also didn't want to overdo it. And despite Brion having lifelink, I'm not that keen on paying with life to cast something. That being said, I still need to playtest the deck, so if it turns out that I really have a huge amount of life to spare, I could certainly add it in :)

I also upvoted your Brion deck, looks very nice! I might add Rush of Blood to my deck as well ... For your deck, I would recommend Illusionist's Bracers and Nim Deathmantle.

Oh, also might want to consider some more efficient stealing cards. You can check my deck for some, but I highly recommend Act of Aggression. The instant speed plus potentially only needing 3 mana can be a lifesaver.

In my build I have had solid gameplay with Atarka, World Render, and Bloodsoaked Champion. I built my Prossh with a ton of removal. Much of my removal is actually based on Threaten mechanics with sac outlets. I run Sarkhan Vol, Conquering Manticore, Molten Primordial, Zealous Conscripts, Act of Aggression, Word of Seizing, Harness by Force, Hijack, and Kari Zev's Expertise all just to steal and sac to one of my outlets.

I have to agree with MindAblaze on the Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos/Butcher of Malakir add. I personally only run Dictate however when it's live it is brutal. Your opponents are helpless until it's removed.

You can look at my list, That's so Prossh, if you would like. I have some janky combos like deathtouch + Deathbringer Thoctar or Goblin Sharpshooter that I could probably take out, but overall the deck is really fun.

An important reason the rule is like it is is so that if you lose (or concede) you can pick up all your cards and leave the table. If you get an emergency phone call you don't want to leave your Oketra the True with a group of strangers because you had a pickup game in a card store.

As for permanents you control when you leave, if they entered under someone else's control and you took them (with Dominate, Act of Aggression, or the like), they get returned to their previous controller. If they entered under your control (with Bribery, Beacon of Unrest, or the like), they get exiled. Either way they stay at the table so their owner can collect them when they leave the game.

If you aren't running Dismiss, you might as well cut Bone to Ash. I'm not certain how strong Mizzium Mortars is. Maybe cut Act of Aggression?

He does more than just that, using an Act of Aggression then Bazaar Trader ability you permanently gain control of that creature, not just until EOT.
