PyreCracker on Sit. Fetch. Devastate.

Hey there, Is it okay for your playgroup that you use a non-legendary card as your commander? If so and you will continue to use Godsire, then you should consider tokendoublers. I am aware that some of them are kind of expensive, but on the other side, some of them arent: Anointed Procession, Doubling Season, Parallel Lives, Primal Vigor.

Populate, can work very good as well, because you play with huge Tokens: Druid's Deliverance, Growing Ranks, Rootborn Defenses, Sundering Growth, Trostani's Judgment, Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage, Wake the Reflections, Wayfaring Temple, also great: Samut, Voice of Dissent.

Altough you have to think about, wich route you want to go with the deck. I would say swarm with tokens and go broad, not Voltron. But if you want to Voltron like hell, you should consider the follwing: Ramp like f*** in the first few turns. Godsire is expensive! and then give it a boost! Godsire has the Potential of killing in one hit if you combine it with the following:

Double Strike: Assault Strobe, Avatar of Slaughter, Battle Mastery, Berserkers' Onslaught, Blood Mist, Boros Charm, Duelist's Heritage, Fireshrieker, Psychotic Fury, Samut, the Tested, Silverblade Paladin, Temur Battle Rage.

Combine this with +X'er: Berserk, Dragon Throne of Tarkir on one of the Tokens, Fatal Frenzy, Nantuko Mentor, Onward, Overwhelming Stampede, Pathbreaker Ibex, Rush of Blood, Wine of Blood and Iron, Xenagos, God of Revels.

I hope i could help you.

Your best combo for a deck like this is going to be Geist of Saint Traft + Steel of the Godhead . Geist becomes a 4/4 hexproof, unblockable, lifelinker, that swings for 8 every turn starting on turn 4. Its a really strong combination. You may also be interested in something like Bruna, Light of Alabaster.

Some other good aura stuff:

Battle Mastery

Hyena Umbra

Kor Spiritdancer

Spirit Mantle (makes unblockable since creatures cant block it)

Aqueous Form

Slippery Bogle

id recommend build all decks to 60 cards, also id say try not to run so many 1 ofs, if this was made from cards you had lying around its fine but if your trying to give it maximum potential and consistency run 4x if you can. when cutting cards get rid of the cards that dont help the strat of the deck. id be looking at Oreskos Swiftclaw and Dromoka Warrior. they are worriors and 3/1 for 2 is on par but if you could get you hands on another 3x Brutal Hordechief that would make the deck stronger and more consistant

this is a deck i made using random cards i have (casual play with mates) Zulaport Cutthroat is the main thing of the deck and i only have 2 so to shell this problem i put it in a agro deck with lots of low drop creatures and draw power, the only card that doesnt follow the nature of the deck is Glorybringer the reason he is in there is as a secondary win condition if playing small things and going wide isnt working. with your Oreskos Swiftclaw and Dromoka Warrior i feel they are more of just a space filler that could be better used card slots.

more on the theme of the deck Battle Mastery is a fantastic card but it realise being put on a scary creature to make it even more scary the biggest creature you have is a 4/4 that dies to Fatal Push

and im assuming that you are using the best removal cards that you could get your hands on because Reave Soul is actually a bad card i can see it with some use if you had a card that reduced power like Meishin, the Mind Cage but you have nothing of the likes.

one last thing is that you might want to consider adding some form of "draw power" pretty much any card that reads "draw a card" is good for you deck or "draw 2" or "whenever x happens draw a card" is best.

hope my rambling didnt bore you, if you have any questions feel free at ask :)

YAY!

freakingShane on Bruna, Antithesis of Sympathy

I honestly recommend not going for a graveyard strategy solely because if you get any graveyard hate you can get shut down. I think have a teeny bit of stuff isn't bad, but I definitely wouldn't recommend the whole "dump half my library into my GY" strategy, haha.

That being said, I am in complete support with your game plan here. Bruna can be played a few different ways, but the smoother variation is the Control/Stax shell. That's the build I made for my wife, and it is brutal...if you'd like to see her's for reference/inspiration, I'll link it here. Also, I made a budget version that shares a lot of the same cards if you'd rather see that!

Okay, so now onto the fun stuff!

I would say that the deck should probably have around 20-30 enchantments. You don't want to have too many, but you want to make sure you hit the auras and such that you need.

Here are some card suggestions: Show

And here are some overall recommendations/advice: Show

I would include pretty much every Stax piece that doesn't really affect you.

Other good inclusions, although they affect everyone, would be: Show

1.) Battle Mastery + Eldrazi Conscription = 30 Commander Damage

2.) Battle Mastery + Corrupted Conscience = 10 Poison counters

3.) Eldrazi Conscription + Corrupted Conscience = 15 Poison counters

4.) Pariah + Indestructibility / Shielded by Faith / Inviolability = Damage immunity

5.) Rest in Peace + Helm of Obedience = Completely mill opponent

This is all my opinion though, so obviously keep everything you like! I'm not trying to tell you that anything is bad or that you have to do anything! It's your deck and you should enjoy it! :)

Let me know if you have any questions or anything!

Beebles on Sigarda the Enchantress

Hey JaysomeDecks,

Nice to see another Sigarda deck that runs (almost) no artifacts and plenty of artifact hate. I love your inclusion of Titania's Song, great find. I browsed to your list and here are some thoughts:

  • How is Celestial Mantle working for you? I never tested it myself as it seemed too expensive for its effect. Whats your take on that?
  • Do you get enough value out of Exploration? When I ran it, it did not often made a difference because of the low amount of lands. Curious to hear your experiences with that card.
  • I ended up cutting Flickerform. Keeping 4 mana open was quite a hefty tax imo. You could consider Heroic Intervention for that spot if you happen to have similar experiences.
  • Did you know Spectra Ward prevents you from playing new auras on Sigarda afterwards? It doesn't remove existing aura's, but it does prevent new (colored) aura's to target Sigarda.
  • Novablast Wurm seems like a random inclusion ;). If you are looking for more wipes I can really recommend Austere Command. Easy to shape to benefit you the most and can also knock out all artifacts, like creeping corrosion. Divine Reckoning is another good wipe for voltron decks.
  • Other cards I can recommend are: Battle Mastery, Aurification, Sigil of the Empty Throne, Darksteel Mutation, and Lignify.

Hope there are some thoughts there that are helpful to you.

GL & HF,

The deck is coming together extremely nice! I have recently been building a stax Brago as well, so I have quite a bit of suggestions. In fact, I may have all of the suggestions, haha.

Seriously though, I apologize for my essay-length feedback...I tried to make it as aesthetically pleasing as I could.

Forgive Me Show

Good luck with your meta and may the oppression of Lord Stalin conquer all!

Duelist's Heritage could be another nice addition, possibly better than Battle Mastery and is lower CMC than Blood Mist, although I am not against having redundancy.

Rogue's Passage is a must include because it is inexpensive, grants evasion, and only takes up a land slot. Mother of Runes could be a good addition, providing your commander a bit more protection. Iroas, God of Victory is just extra benefit for you, plus he adds to flavor.

Overall I might suggest having a little more focus in archetype. I'd say the deck could thrive in three main ways:

These are just suggestions, some of which may be too expensive, but I hope this helped a little!

Auriel on Hope You Won't Hurt Me (Mono White EDH)

As for cards to replace those I would suggest Sol Ring, Ajani's Chosen Windborn Muse Spirit Mantle Sigil of the Empty Throne Journey to Nowhere Oblivion Ring Nomad Mythmaker Day of Judgment Umbra Mystic Eland Umbra Enduring Ideal Starfield of Nyx Ethereal Armor Lifelink Eidolon of Countless Battles Swiftfoot Boots Karmic Guide Battle Mastery Hero of Iroas Winds of Rath Kor Spiritdancer Arrest Celestial Mantle and Three Dreams. Like I said these are just suggestions as it is your deck! This will just allow you to keep your pillow fort and then swing over the top! There's a lot of equipment you can use as well but that's usually the more pricey route
