The Bloodbraid Elf is indeed from Planechase 2012. It's in Spanish. If that's ok with you, that trade sounds good

Recover819 on Need help for fun deck ...

I have a version of Seismic Swans that uses Bloodbraid Elf to hunt down Seismic Assault. Most of the deck is lands which you can just go through to find what you need. The basic combo is to target Swans of Bryn Argoll with Seismic Assault to draw your deck. Once you get enough lands in hand you can go lethal with it. One of the funniest decks.

Here is a basic list. I like Treasure Hunt in it also.:

Creature (8)

4 Bloodbraid Elf

4 Swans of Bryn Argoll

Instant (6)

2 Ad Nauseam

4 Bituminous Blast

Enchantment (4)

4 Seismic Assault

Land (42)4 Cascade Bluffs

4 Fire-Lit Thicket

4 Ghitu Encampment

4 Graven Cairns

1 Mountain

1 Mutavault

4 Reflecting Pool

4 Rugged Prairie

4 Spinerock Knoll

4 Treetop Village

4 Vivid Crag

4 Vivid Marsh

I want to build a fun-deck using Bloodbraid Elf, but I don't have the other jund money-cards it often is associated with (Goyfs, Confidants etc.).

Can you suggest a deck list that uses Bloodbraid Elf that doesn't break the bank? I only want to play and have fun using the elf, I doesn't need to be super-competitive, as long as it could win duels when it runs right and the deck should highlight what Bloodbraid Elf does best.


timefabric on Borby's Boulder Bombs! [v.EDH]

Good call on the channeler for titania replacement, I threw that in there quickly from an outdated mtg salvation post regarding infinite combos. I use Titania in several decks and definitely a straight upgrade.

I'm assuming you have experience playing the deckstyle; I haven't gotten the chance to playtest this so I certainly appreciate the time you took to leave feedback.

The reason I have the Wirewood Herald and Elvish Harbinger is to find the Bloodbraid Elf, which would ideally help sift through all the lands in the deck to bring out the plethora of 1, 2 and 3 drop infinite combos.

I'm especially keen on Saproling Cluster + Fecundity + Ashnod's Altar + Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre in the library for infinite mana & card draw, and Bloodbraid certainly helps me get there.

To your point though, sticking with the theme of the deck is important and I may have tried to force one too many combos in that realistically wouldn't happen very often. I'm going to look at swapping the cards in that you suggested.

Thanks dude!

Also cascade stuff like Bloodbraid Elf ?

Infinimage007 on Vial Smasher in Jund?

Hey y'all... Just a thought I had. Is Vial Smasher the Fierce a viable include in Jund? She makes all of our spells hurt the opponent which can sort of offset the damage taken from Dark Confidant, and she makes the Grove of the Burnwillows and Punishing Fire combo hurt much more. I feel like a one-of in the maindeck could do work, especially because you could cascade into her through Bloodbraid Elf.

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly - I can understand wanting to hold onto legacy playables.

As for your offer, I'm not interested in BBE unless it's the planeschase art. If it is, I like your proposed offer. If not, how do you feel about that trade minus Bloodbraid Elf from your end and minus Rashmi, Eternities Crafter from my side?

Holy shit that mini-Languish is "why is Bloodbraid Elf still banned?" levels of insane.

I wonder if it's going to be a recurring theme in Revolt?



Scrap Trawler

Artifact Creature - Construct

Whenever Scrap Trawler or another artifact you control is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, return to your hand target artifact card in your graveyard with lesser converted mana cost.

This is also pretty ridiculous. Seems like it'd be really good in Eggs.
