Not decked with card but also tryed this card. Closest i got was using Bloodbraid Elf in an Artillery based STORM deck to fetch arty cards at no cost. Ran up against a not good enough combo card or 2 for bringing Bloodbraid Elf back into play as often as needed. so kinda gave up for now. I personally dont care for the common way its made into top 8 GP's/Pro Tours. Never seems as powerfull as they make it in the decks they make. Dunno..

There's a neat RG aggro deck on here called CoCo Ball Breaker that played Bloodbraid Elf with Ball Lightning and Groundbreaker. It doesn't have Bloodbraid anymore, but it worked pretty well when it did. I think someone made a video of it being played. You could even combine that idea with a Primal Forcemage deck (like this: to make it even more explosive.

I LOVE Bloodbae too ... that card is just sooooo good!

I recommend checking out SaffronOlive's GR HasteBraid deck for sure.

You can also build it more midrangy , trading some of the Aggro slots for Boartusk Liege. I've been working on that for a while now, with the Ponza mana/dork package, and even though it's a little bit of Magical Christmasland, I can confirm there's just nothing quite like having a Liege on the battlefield, casting Bloodbraid Elf, Cascading into a Boggart Ram-Gang, and then swinging with a 3/4 Trampler, a 5/5 with Wither, and a 5/4!

Xenagos, the Reveler fits nicely into the midrange shell as well ... generating Hasty 2/2s is great, but his Hasty 4/4s (when the Liege is out) are just bonkers.

Good luck (and skill) with the brew! Please tag me when you have a shell ... I'd love to take a look.

I have seen the ponza deck and ponza was one of my first budget decks but my group really didn't like it so I stopped playing it, I would be more into an aggro based strategy but I can't seem to find many with Bloodbraid Elf

Hello, I love brewing decks, most of which are budget but I also enjoy the more teir side of modern. I was wanting to build a budget deck for my favorite card Bloodbraid Elf and then upgrade it. I would want the initial build to be around $100-$150 and then I will upgrade over time. Any ideas for the deck? I love temur and tempo decks the most so maybe a temur deck would work! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

enpc on Storm Scale: Mirrodin and SoM

"I wish that artifacts lands, entwine, and Phyrexian mana were lower, because I am very fond of them due to their power and versatility."

Yeah, that's why they're rated so high. Because they are so powerful and versatile.

Indestrucible is ok, It's a very Timmy effect which makes newer players feel safe, but generally indestructible stuff is over costed or very vanilla.

I think with equipment, they will always have it to some extent, however the quality of the equipment varies. There are sets which are very equipment heavy (SoM is a perfect example) but a lot of sets have maybe one good equipment and that's it. So it's not so much a questions of "Will we haev equipment" but more "Will the set focus on equipment?"

As for the Alara blocks which bring cascade into the fold, the storm scale is somewhere between a 10 and an 11. Similar to Annihilator, I doubt we will ever see cascade happen in standard again. It's just too much value (as opposed to Annihilator which is big impact becuase everybody hated playing against). I mean, the standard deck of the day was Bloodbraid Elf cascading into Woolly Thoctar.

Aaerys on Mayael, the "no dick moves" friendly deck

You playgroup targets are really boring.... There goes most of my ideas!


  • Bloodbraid Elf seems like it would have some potential but you would really need to playtest it because it may backfire due to your CMC

  • You have really lovely mana fixing, it's honestly really impressive!

  • Land Tax could serve you really well especially early game to get you ahead and casting stompy stuff early

  • Nissa, Worldwaker could serve you pretty well too, especially uncapping forests!

I generally don't know too much about Naya, I'm sorry I couldn't contribute more! You have a really cool deck!

Chasmolinker on Standard Jund

Jadelight Ranger seems very Jund like. Ripjaw raptor doing double duty here. Decent beater that rewards you with card advantage. Should be a 4 of IMHO. I would cut 2 Ruin Raider for it. Sort of fills the Bloodbraid Elf slot.

I would ditch the energy theme at this point and swap Harnessed Lightning for Lightning Strike. There isn't enough support here to make the energy theme really shine. It works best with Winding Constrictor. Cool build +1.

No Liliana, Death's Majesty makes the deck seem less Jund and more Gruul.
