Brisela, Voice of Nightmares Discussion
5 days ago
They aren't used very often but the cards don't have great meld support. I've been having to add versions of the melded cards to the deck, tutor them out and use them as though they were real life tokens. None of these cards have backs: Bruna, the Fading Light, Gisela, the Broken Blade, Graf Rats, Midnight Scavengers, Hanweir Battlements and Hanweir Garrison. Things like Brisela, Voice of Nightmares do exist but it's a pain in the ass. If Brisela, Voice of Nightmares could be a token in any deck with Bruna, the Fading Light that'd probably be the best fix Imo.

Hey skinken, thanks for taking the time to give some good feedback. Tutors are for sure the way to class up the deck, and I used to have a few more than I do now. I've done a bit of tuning since then to keep them to a minimum and really just add room for fun stuff. The tutors I've got are Wild Research, Ring of Three Wishes, and Expedition Map turns into Inventors' Fair. I'll be sure to add Gamble though probably in place of the Ring of Three Wishes because I think that's hilarious and even kinda sums up the deck.
I do agree that it's not always the best idea to have things in your deck that totally cancel other things. The Akroan Horse is pretty mediocre in general and might even be due for a cut, but the Desolation Giant is more of a circumstantial piece. Like if i throw him under a Summoner's Egg, or enchant him with a False Demise and give that away. Torpor Orb is an awesome card and certainly makes a lot of the deck function but I prefer my Hushwing Gryff to him instead since I can control when I want to block with it to get it off the board and do big stuff. Bruna, the Fading Light is actually a cast trigger instead of an ETB but if it wasn't I would totally agree that it's stupid, so thanks for having my back. I avtually Added her and gisela in because I recently broke down a deck that had them in it and I have a fair enough amount of card draw to hopefully make Brisela, Voice of Nightmares happen on occasion
The farie artisians thing is sick though, I'll add a list of dumb funny things that I've been able to pull off like that. I think you'll get a kick out of it.

Also, Faerie Artisans is extremely cheeky, god damn. Here's the line:
Step 1: You just play the artisan. I have played it a bit in the past, and it's not particularly exciting but totally ok, especially as a defensive card.
Step 2: Make sure to develop Zedruu the Greathearted
Step 3: Give an opponent control of Faerie Artisans with zedruu and play Leveler to kill them at their next draw step (note that faerie artisans's ability is not a may ability). Or in a game with multible people still alive, play Sky Swallower to take their board (including Faerie Artisans).
I admit, it's not very likely to happen, but it's actually mor consistent than Brisela, Voice of Nightmares, and potentially gamewinning if you ever pull it off.

The idea seems very fun, but with no tutor's pretty inconsistent. Since you are not in green I would suggest running an artifact tutor package to get Torpor Orb. Besides being easier to fetch, being an artifact makes it a lot easier to stick on the board through the many creature board wipes in multiplayer edh. I'm a big fan of Whir of Invention myself, and Fabricate is great too. Although a little more pricey, Gamble is totally worth it too, it even synergizes well with all the draw form. Other options include Hoarding Dragon if you wanna go cheap, or Enlightened Tutor if you want to go expensive. Running artifact tutoring means more Despotic Scepter and hate pieces like Pithing Needle (another favorite of mine, it is SO much better than I first thought)
There are a couple of cards in the deck I don't like as much, mainly because they don't work well with Torpor Orb in play: Akroan Horse, Bruna, the Fading Light and Desolation Giant. Remember that the tokens given to your opponents are not owned by you:
From the Comprehensive Rules (Dominaria (April 27, 2018)) 110.5a A token is both owned and controlled by the player under whose control it entered the battlefield.
Desolation Giant is bad with Torpor Orb as well as without it compared to a card like Phyrexian Rebirth. If you really want the Brisela, Voice of Nightmares, and don't care that you have little to no tutors and a deck that really tries hard to stop the reanimation trigger, I won't be one to stop you, Brizzy is pretty dope ;)
Cool that you are having success with such a wild build though! Hf my guy

I think you took Steel Hellkite, he's pretty good, I also don't personally run him, but he's a good Dragon. I'd rather have him over other guys that don't really have any abilities like Akroma, Angel of Wrath.
Also figured I'd mention since you were asking about Flameblast Dragon, Bruna, the Fading Light doesn't work off of Kaalia of the Vast either, she only Triggers her ability when she is "Cast", Kaalia of the Vast puts her into play, never "Casts" her. So just keep in mind when playing her, if you do cheat her you lose the benefit, mostly have to hard cast. Quicksilver Amulet the same doesn't trigger Bruna, the Fading Light. Brisela, Voice of Nightmares pretty sweet though.

Another few changes to make this more lethal and playable Ive add/removed the following
I wanted to have Brisela, Voice of Nightmares in the deck even though its rare for it to ever appear in play, just one of those gotta have combos :)

Brisela, Voice of Nightmares locks the table and generates hate, which I think I should avoid;
Mistmeadow Witch doesn't have enough cards in the deck to sinergize with;
Arbiter of Knollridge seems a lot of fun! I think it could sabotage the only win condition in the deck, but it is very tempting to include!
Nevertheless, thank you very much! Every suggestion is welcome and it's always good to hear other opinions.

Also, I find Reverse the Sands a very useful card in grouphuggy decks. In case someone doesn't appreciate the hugs :) Also, Arbiter of Knollridge to keep the table your friend, especially with a way to blink it (one of my favourites is Mistmeadow Witch).
