Brago, King Eternal Discussion
1 week ago
Thx for your comment and kind words, SirSh4ggy!
I'm sceptic about Replenish, since the only irreplaceable Enchantments would be Anointed Procession, Cathars' Crusade and Militia's Pride. The rest is pretty good, yet compensateable. I have an Argivian Find that has been on the back of my head since forever, what do you think about that one? Faith's Reward wasn't too bad in my Brago, King Eternal deck and might be one of the most decent options in mono-.
... plus none of them cost 20$, lol.
Ajani Goldmane, huh? Hmm, i tend to pick static buffs over counters, as they also enhance creatures that enter the battlefield later on. I was wondering about Honor of the Pure, Spear of Heliod and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite (only put her on hold to check prices after Iconic Masters).

Hey Oloro_Magic, i just stumbled upon this deck and wondered if it's still a deck in use. If you like Spine of Ish Sah and Tangle Wire i can only advise you to get a Shimmer. Rarely have i seen anything as disgusting as that with Brago, King Eternal.

I'm not playing a lot of the super dorky combos, but there's a few ones i'd enjoy:

Never thought of that one in particular, but i'm definitely willing to try it out. My Meren deck is often infamous for not letting anyone play after it starts doing it's thing but still be painfully slow to finish up games after that, so I am open to play some combos in it to fasten things up.
More competitively I run Narset, Enlightened Master, Brago, King Eternal and Breya, Etherium Shaper as generals, so I try to keep Meren as fair as I can and the only way to do so is not make it blistering fast ahah

No problem. I agree some of those suggestions are high cost mana wise, but really it's more about cost vs value ratio. As I said previously, keeping Taigam on the field each round of turns is critical, you need to have him as an eligible attacker on every turn you get. Without him swinging, the deck slows way, way down.
I really do enjoy seeing Taigam do his thing in EDH matches, he's easily one of the most flavorful Azorius commanders out there, up there with Brago, King Eternal. I think in time I'll make a deck around him as well. For now he's awesome as one of the 99 in my Untapped Potential - Dragonlord Ojutai deck.
Cheers mate, Azorius for life :)

If you're worried about only having instant speed answers, you could try Quicken. It is only a one time use, but one could be all you need. Also, some secret tech I found for my superfriends list is Armageddon. Since plansewalkers are free to activate, you don't need your lands once you get a few on the board. Brago, King Eternal can let you use your plansewalkers twice per tern (like venser), and Rings of Brighthearth can let you copy your loyalty abilities like the Chain Veil.

Looks like a pretty sweet deck. One thing I'd recommend is to cut some of the 'ETBs tapped' for opponents stuff. Consistency is cool and all, but Loxodon Gatekeeper, Root Maze, Manglehorn, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, and Frozen AEther seems a little excessive. I'm a fan of enchantments, since they're a little harder to remove than creatures. You might want to drop the Loxodon Gatekeeper or Thalia, Heretic Cathar for a Blind Obedience.
Looks like you're also going for locking down the untap step. Have you considered Stasis at all? It has proved to be pretty solid in my deck, so long as I can consistently deal combat damage to have untapped. Also, Mind Over Matter is waaaaay better than the Azorius Guildmage. Pricey, but worth it in my experience. And since you're locking that stuff down, you might want to put some thought into adding a Murkfiend Liege to backup your Seedborn Muse, should it be removed. I could also see the newly printed Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist performing well in your deck.
I think your card draw might also need some work. The last thing you want is to be dead in the water and top decking for answers. Rhystic Study and Bident of Thassa are good, but what makes this deck scary is when your hand is huge--that's what makes your opponents think twice about their plays. I'd recommend a Pull from Tomorrow, Coastal Piracy, Consecrated Sphinx, or at least an Arcanis the Omnipotent to be abused with Derevi, Empyrial Tactician's ability. Add in a Laboratory Maniac and a Mind Over Matter and you have yourself a card draw combo stew.
There's no better way to stop a combo than to simply counter it. I'd consider including a few more counterspells like the OG Counterspell. Disallow is also a solid show-stopper when an opponent thinks they're being clever. Also good for stopping combo engines are Stony Silence, and Null Rod.
It looks like you're relying on a bunch of ETB effects with only Brago, King Eternal and a few reanimators like Eternal Witness and Sun Titan. If you're bent on ETBs, I'd recommend Venser, the Sojourner, and perhaps Conjurer's Closet and of course, the eternally useful Deadeye Navigator, which is good at getting you a lot of mana with either Palinchron or Peregrine Drake (economic option).
Since you're also making things more expensive, have you considered adding in Aura of Silence? Quite good for shutting up opponents. Trinisphere is also effective at making things too costly for the opponents. Lastly, as for dealing with CMC and such, a Void Winnower is pretty good at locking down a great deal of spells. Having a board state with Gaddock Teeg, Trinisphere, Void Winnower, Vryn Wingmare, and Grand Arbiter Augustin IV will give your opponents such a nightmare headache as they try to navigate the actual cost of of a spell.
So it looks like you have a few things that make tokens, but not much else for them. I'd recommend to either go all-in and add in a few more token-makers like Squirrel Nest, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, or Avenger of Zendikar. If you're going that route, I'd suggest Doubling Season, Parallel Lives, or Anointed Procession.
Overall it seems like a really solid deck. Might still need a bit of tweaking, but I like what it's got going on! Also, please don't think I'm trying to tell you how to build your deck, these are only suggestions and ideas to consider! Thanks for sharing!

Don't forget poor old Brago, King Eternal as a way to flicker the things. Another way to flicker auras onto EA.
