Bloodshot Cyclops Discussion

TheRedGoat - I've been considering some effects like that, namely Bloodshot Cyclops and Chandra's Ignition , due to their proclivity at dealing a lot of damage. As for Wayward Swordtooth and other incidentally fat creatures, I'm always open to ideas that fit. The current decklist as it is still relatively new, so I've got to get some gameplay experience down before I can say what sort of cards will stay or go. Thanks for your comment, my friend!

Additionally, have you considered utility creatures that are incidentally larger than their cost? Wayward Swordtooth is the only example that comes to mind, but you get the idea.

If you like Fling or Thud , consider Bloodshot Cyclops for a more repeatable version of the effect. Cards like Gaea's Touch , Ghirapur Orrery and Rites of Flourishing are budget cards that let you play additional lands, and the Rites lets you draw an extra card, too. Sakura-Tribe Scout , Skyshroud Ranger , and Walking Atlas offer you more Llanowar Scout effects, and you might find Budoka Gardener to be on theme for you deck, too. I'd recommend Goblin Bombardment as a good free sac outlet for Omnath's death trigger, and Warstorm Surge to bring some more pain when your big creatures come into play - straight upgrade over Where Ancients Tread .
Looks good so far! Hope this helps.

Recommended Cards to Add
This of course does not take into accountmana curve considerations or anything similar. It is merely cards to consider
Captivating Crew - Repeated steal effect to have ammunition to throw at people
Evra, Halcyon Witness - Large creature that can be as big as your lifetotal when thrown if wanted.
Serra Avatar - Large creature that is as big as your life total to potentially one shot someone and double your lifetotal
Zealous Conscripts - Can steal an opposing creature to throw, opposing walker to ult or any other problematic permenent. Also incidentaly goes infinite with Kiki Jiki.
Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker - Can tap to make copies of your big creatures to throw. Goes infinite with Zealous conscripts.
Malignus - Large creature that scales with life total of opponent
Molten Primordial - Mass threaten on a stick
Feldon of the Third Path - makes copies of your already dead creatures
Emeria Shepherd - Recursion that can also be reanimation
Hoarding Dragon - A way to search out our game winning artifacts. Easy enough to throw at someone to get our artifact.
Karmic Guide - Reanimation
Neheb, the Eternal - lots of mana if you throw things pre combat
Yosei, the Morning Star - Very good thing to be able to recur. Can lock people out of the game with enough setup.
War Elemental - Scales as we throw things
Bloodshot Cyclops - Backup Brion?
Bearer of the Heavens - Dont make me do this!
Gisela, Blade of Goldnight - Double our damage, half theirs? Yes please
The usual goes here of making sure that we have interaction for people trying to stop us or making sure we can stop people. Though of specific mention
Faith's Reward - Recover from a wrath or just rebuy a couple of good creatures after a combat and throw.
Orim's Thunder - Hadn't actually seen this before but it seems to be a good potential 2 for 1 while also being a good answer to artifacts and enchantments.
Here there are a lot of potential threaten effects that i could recommend. But we know that we need them so i won't list them all. Other effects we could need do include one or two wraths as even though we are the creature deck, sometimes they just have more or better creatures. However other things to note.
Open the Armory - Tutors equipment or Auras.
Chandra's Ignition - Targetting some of our big creatures might just end the game with this.
Insurrection - You usually just win if this resolves on a decent board state.
Other than that, the fun things include
Phyrexian Processor - Yeh this card is rather good. Just Make big tokens and start throwing them
Well of Lost Dreams - With the triggers from Brion we should be able to restock our hand quite easily with this
Illusionist's Bracers - Copy the fling. As sacrificing a creature is part of the cost it will effectively be two triggers from flinging the same creature.
Thornbite Staff - Untaps brion when a creature dies. This includes sacrificing the creature to brion, so effectively tapping him causes him to untap....
Thousand-Year Elixir - Gives Brion haste and an untap.
Aetherflux Reservoir - 50cal Sniper Rifle to the face anyone?
Damage doublers can be recommended but i usually avoid the symettrical ones from personal preference. One or two effects that give Haste might be good too. Other effects however
Flameshadow Conjuring - Copy up our faties for good ETB triggers, effective haste or extra copies to throw with Brion.
Sigil of the New Dawn - Recur everything!
Marshal's Anthem - Decent mass resurrect in white. Though a little mana intensive
Angelic Renewal - One time use recursion of a creature
Goblin Bombardment - Backup sacrifice effects for all our threatens. WE don't want to have to give their toys back do we?

Speaking of her first ability, you may want some sacrifice outlets in order to get rid of Nikya once you draw a win condition like Primal Surge or Tooth and Nail. Bloodshot Cyclops is one hilarious way to do it, and there's also good old High Market
You really aren't running that many centaurs or druids, so losing tempo by having Path of Ancestry come in tapped isn't that worth it. A good replacement might be Ancient Ziggurat because you don't care about noncreature spells that much
