Briarbridge Patrol

Creature — Human Warrior

Whenever Briarbridge Patrol deals combat damage to one or more creatures, investigate. (Put a colourless Clue artifact token onto the battlefield with ", Sacrifice this artifact: Draw a card.")

At the beginning of each end step, if you sacrifice three or more Clues this turn, you may put a creature card from your hand onto the battlefield.

Koios on Karador's Murder Mystery Tour

Hi, Thrashzor45!

This is a really creative and fun deck, I like it alot =)

One suggestion I have is to add Briarbridge Patrol . The investigate on creature damage is not great, but the second ability coupled with Tamiyo's Journal makes up for it in my opinion. Sacking 3 clues to tutor, which 9/10 times will be a creature I imagine, and then getting to play it for free at the end step is stellar.

Yours is a very different Karador deck than my own, but it's the versatility that draws many people to him as a commander. I'd love some input, but beware that I've gone a bit over the top with my maybeboard.

Firegriff on EDH Custom Deck Challenge

The Challenge that I propose is this: pick a plane, then design a featured Commander of a Legend from the plane. The twist is that the Commander needs to be at least two colors and be designed as a Planeswalker that can be played as Commander. Describe the idea for the deck, how the Commander's Spark triggered, and a general idea of cards you might include as part of the deck if you were designing it for sale. For instance:

Deck name: Saving Grace Plane: Innistrad Commander: Sigarda, Heron of Light (3)(G)(W) Sigarda, Heron of Light can be your Commander. [+2] Put a 1/1 Human token with hexproof into play under your control. [-2] Discard a creature card from your hand. Put a 4/4 Angel token with flying and hexproof into play under your control. [-8] You gain an emblem with, "Creatures you control have lifelink and hexproof. Creatures you control may not be sacrificed. [4]

Spark: After the confrontation with the fused, corrupted Bruna and Gisela, after the 'victory' of the Gatewatch, Sigarda's heart longed for answers, for how to help heal her world. Her heart's cry pulled her out of her world to another, before pulling her back home, where she found Arlinn Kord waiting to speak with her. Realizing now the existence of other worlds, Sigarda has determined to find a way to keep the humans of her ravaged world safe from both internal threats and threats from other planes.

Deck concept: Angels, Humans and Spirits working together to protect and support each other.

Sample cards: Briarbridge Patrol, Cathedral Sanctifier, Champion of Lambholt, Champion of the Parish, Devout Chaplain, Bygone Bishop, Dearly Departed, Drogskol Shieldmate, Angel of Glory's Rise, Angel of Jubilation, Herald of War, Haunted Cloak, Avacyn's Collar, Inquisitor's Flail

CREATURES

Cards I'd cut:

Aberrant Researcher  Flip - There are better options to throw cards into your own graveyard. Examples include Sultai Ascendancy or Search for azcanta which will later let you Anticipate each turn.

Accursed Witch  Flip - Curses alienate one player and make them hate you. You don't want people to hate you in EDH. Also curses aren't very good to begin with.

Ashling, the Extinguisher - 4 mana with no evasion makes it very unlikely this critter will actually connect with players. I recommend cutting it for a better force-sacrifice effect like Innocent Blood.

Bloodbriar - It's selfish (it only gives itself +1/+1 counters) and it has zero evasion. Not worth it. I recommend Reyhan, Last of the Abzan in its stead; it has the same CMC and lets you move around +1/+1 counters all day.

Briarbridge Patrol - Not very good. Tireless Tracker is so much better. Replace the creature-searching with Evolutionary Leap or if you want to spend $75 Survival of the Fittest is amazing.

Centaur Rootcaster - Same reason as Ashling. Get rid of it. Wood Elves and Sakura-Tribe Elder instead.

Deadeye Plunderers - You only have two artifacts in the deck.

Demon of Wailing Agonies - Slow. Especially when your commander has CMC 6.

Gatekeeper of Malakir - BBB cost is really hard to get sometimes in BUG colors.

Glissa, the Traitor - Slow. She's neat and a good blocker but it doesn't matter because you only have two artifacts.

Greater Harvester - Same reason as the Gatekeeper. Run Smothering Abomination instead.

Labyrinth Guardian - This critter adds nothing to your strategy.

Magus of the Mirror - I've killed people with their own Magus. Also the same problem as the curses; it alienates one person. Also Tree of Perdition exists.

Marrow Chomper - Too slow.

Mortician Beetle - Selfish. Swap with Fleshbag Marauder and Slum Reaper.

Patron of the Nezumi - Not enough rats to make it worth it. Effect is meh.

Phylactery Lich - Same reason as Gatekeeper. Also you only have two artifacts.

Savra, Queen of the Golgari - She does nothing on her own; she needs other things to do her work which isn't good.

Sidisi, Brood Tyrant - Just run Grave Titan instead.

Skullmulcher - Consider Soul of the Harvest instead. Both are good but you might need more gas than Skullmulcher can give you.

Utopia Mycon - Too slow.

I'll add more comments when I get more time to look over the next few categories.

I'm lacking a Tireless Tracker and Erdwal Illuminator but for investigate I have Tamiyo's Journal Weirding Wood Jace's Scrutiny Briarbridge Patrol Ongoing Investigation and Ulvenwald Mysteries the current deck build is very artifact focused and if possible I'd like to keep it that way.

Hey, great cube! In your introduction, you talked about u/g being weak. In Shadow over Innistrad and Eldritch Moon the U/G archetype was the "clues" deck with all of the investigate cards.cards such as Daring Sleuth  Flip & Briarbridge Patrol, & Byway Courier, also Confirm Suspicions, (I dont like that one, would rather you have Confront the Unknown).

nice deck! I'd recommend adding a few more artifacts incase the combo doesn't happen with Briarbridge Patrol, Tamiyo's Journal, and Metalwork Colossus. That way if push comes to shove you can play metalwork colossus for super cheap.
