No Winds of Rath ? This is the boardwipe that made me want to play Bruna in the first place.

While walls can buy you some time, they're not going to do much to advance your cause. Maybe keep Fog Bank and either Plumeveil for the ambush factor or Wall of Denial because it keeps almost everything in check and add some better utility creatures like Umbra Mystic or Mother of Runes .

Illusionary Armor is one you'll have to be careful with, once its on your own equipment will kill it. Equipment doesn't really have the same synergies with Bruna that auras do some your equip count may be a bit high here. Armory of Iroas looks like it takes awhile to really get going so would probably be better making this slot ramp, say Azorius Signet . I'd take out at least 2 more pieces of equipment and sub in artifact ramp.

@whitetailfreak22, If you blink SFM she will trigger twice. If you blink her once and you had Panharmonicon out for both times then you'd tutor up for four equipment.

The equipment needs to put counters on the creature for it to double with Doubling Season or Hardened Scales . If you equip a creature with Short Sword it only gets +1/+1 once. If the equipped creature is equipped with an equipment such as Armory of Iroas it will get double the +1/+1 counters.

Armory of Iroas it’s cheap cast, cheap equip and gives the counter on attack rather than damage.

Do keep in mind that the Equip ability does target, so if you plan to put Armory of Iroas and Lightning Greaves on the same creature, you'll need to equip the Armory first. If you equip the Greaves first, you can't target the creature to equip the Armory.

If you don't want to have to stress out over this, an option would be to get the (slightly more expensive) Swiftfoot Boots . One more to cast, one more to equip, but it's hexproof instead of shroud, which is more flexible for your side of the table.

Shroud specifically prevents an object from being targeted by a spell or ability. Armory of Iroas 's first ability doesn't target. Neither does Drana's ability. In both cases, the creature with Lightning Greaves would still get a counter.

Only abilities that specifically say "target" actually target.

If, however, the ability said "put a +1/+1 counter on TARGET creature you control," then you could not choose a creature with shroud.

Hi guys, I've got a quick question regarding ability interactions for a deck that I'm working on for Tiny Leaders;

If I equip an item with Shroud Lightning Greaves , to a creature that has Armory of Iroas already equipped and attack with it, does said creature still gain the +1/+1 counters due to shroud being an effect on said creature?

Or a followup related question; If I'm using Drana, Liberator of Malakir , and have shroud via the item, will her ability still effect her when it gets triggered?

Thanks guys, looking forward to hearing how this works, as it will impact whether or not I try to run Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots in the deck I'm building.

Considering dropping both Might Beyond Reason , 1 Hinterland Logger  Flip, and boarding the 3rd Armory of Iroas by dropping the Act of Treason since I've got a pair of Traitorous Instinct in there already. Think that would work for getting an extra 4 lands in there?

I like. Few suggestions for ya. Dying Wish and Rite of Consumption let you throw Skullbriar at people.

Forge of Heroes , Guildmages' Forum and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood would give you more lands that add counters to Skullbriar. Karn's Bastion adds more counters assuming he already has at least one.

With Phyresis already in the deck, you might also consider Glistening Oil . Skullbriar's ability won't keep the -1/-1 counters and unlike Phyresis, Glistening Oil can be reused. Rancor would also give you reusable trample.

Forced Adaptation , Ring of Xathrid and Armory of Iroas other potential low-cost +1/+1 counter generators.

Hope you find something you can use in all that text. :)
