Bruna, the Fading Light Discussion

Delta-117 on G/B Delirium

1 day ago

Why did I not even consider Walking Ballista? For B/G delirium?? All that came to mind for me was Hope of Ghirapur, although I think that this might possibly be better.

I see you have chosen to cut out Mindwrack Demon, I'm still wanting to try that card I think in mine perhaps, as I had a few ideas such as replacing my Noxious Gearhulk with Verdurous Gearhulk and thus works very well with it.

I'm torn on whether or not to use Grasp of Darkness still or not. I have had a few ideas, how I could change the deck, one just like yours was in keeping it pretty much the same but just adding Decimator of the Provinces, while another was splashing white for a copy of Gisela, the Broken Blade, and a Bruna, the Fading Light, however I'm not sure what's the best route.

Delta-117, Your question about Noxious Gearhulk got me thinking... Verdurous Gearhulk is a great card, but you're not really blowing out of the gate with tons of low-cost creatures, which is the best use for his counters.

That said, Verdurous Gearhulk does make the Ishkanah, Grafwidow spider tokens absolutely bonkers. It's a little slow, but an Ishkanah, Grafwidow followed by a Verdurous Gearhulk will be very hard to deal with. If you do decide to play 2x Verdurous Gearhulk, I'd go for 3x Ishkanah, Grafwidow as well.

What you said about Evolving Wilds to help trigger Revolt is not a bad idea, but Aether Revolt gave the Delirium decks an even better option: Renegade Map. Turn 1 was usually always Vessel of Nascency or Traverse the Ulvenwald with the goal of fixing your mana. However, artifact is usually the hardest type to hit in the GB Delirium Decks. T1 you play Renegade Map, T2 you crack the map, putting an artifact into the GY, tutor the land and play it untapped the same turn. No tempo loss like you can get with Evolving Wilds.

While Brisela, Voice of Nightmares is very powerful, it's usually very easy to kill Gisela, the Broken Blade before the meld. The decks that are good with Bruna, the Fading Light give her more targets than just Gisela, the Broken Blade. I actually lost a match once because I cast Bruna, the Fading Light and went for the meld rather than choosing Thalia, Heretic Cathar. My opponent was able to cast To the Slaughter and Gisela, the Broken Blade was the only target I could sacrifice. I still had the Bruna, the Fading Light, but on his turn he cast Ishkanah, Grafwidow which bought him enough time to find the answer for Bruna, the Fading Light and win.

Long story short: Gisela, the Broken Blade is too easily handled before the meld. But there is another 2WW spell that is even better for your 4-drop slot: Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. He's actually even better after the bannings. A T4 Emrakul, the Promised End is a stronger play than a T4 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar no matter how you look at it. And Smuggler's Copter put him under a lot of early game pressure that all the Soldier Tokens in the world couldn't defend against.

What's even better is that Gideon, Ally of Zendikar doesn't die to Fatal Push. People are so in love with Fatal Push right now that they are changing a lot of their lists just to be able to use that very efficient removal spell with Revolt. As much as I love Gisela, the Broken Blade, Aether Revolt just made her that much easier to kill.

Also, with Emrakul, the Promised End gone, people are going to be removing some/all of the Stasis Snares, which is one of the few answers for Gideon, Ally of Zendikar that has been seeing play.

I don't mean to drone on too much. I made a copy of your list and made the changes I'm describing here so it's easier to see. Here's the link if you're interested:

Drcfan on First Angel Deck attempt

Your average CMC is 3.92. that means your mana curve is too high for 20 lands. I would not go over CMC 3.5, even then you need 23-24 lands. Angels aren't cheap, so your early game needs some defense/ramp like Wall of Omens,Knight of the White Orchid or control like Wrath of God,Path to Exile.Mana Tithe,Banishing Light. For your safe win you will need a strong graveyard recursion, so your angel come back every turn if they get killed 3-4xEmeria, The Sky Ruin. Since you play mono white. Devotion would be a nice addition for ramping faster into big Angels Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Archangel of Thune is really expensive. If you want to run this, look for synergy with this angel, like Herald of War. Look for a little bit more consistency. Cut out what you really dont need. Like Archangel's Light and make 4x of cards you need instead of 2x. If you need an idea for more strong ($cheap$) Angels: Linvala, the Preserver,Bruna, the Fading Light,Akroma, Angel of Wrath,Archangel of Tithes,Baneslayer Angel

An auto include in Kaalia is Iona, Shield of Emeria. I also recommend Linvala, Keeper of Silence if you can afford it. Nahiri, the Harbinger over Vess because it offers more removal but if you can find a spot for both that would be the best. I also recommend the new angels from Eldritch Moon Bruna, the Fading Light and Gisela, the Broken Blade.

You could always do with a few copies of Angel of Invention instead of Serra Angel.

Also, if you're going to run Animation Module, you might as well run the other two (Decoction Module and Fabrication Module).

You will want to replace Impeccable Timing with another Gideon's Reproach (same cost, but does more dmg).

You have an ally sub-theme but I don't really think it works for this deck for 2 reasons. 1) There's not enough allies and 2) The effects only benefit the allies, not your entire deck. I would replace some of them with Aerial Responder (it's the white version of Vampire Nighthawk.)

Value/Good cards: Authority of the Consulate (just good), Collective Effort (good for removal, and pump) Dazzling Reflection (who doesn't love gaining life), Fairgrounds Warden (removal), if you have the money, Gisela, the Broken Blade+Bruna, the Fading Light (Gisela is better).

What to Remove: Things that don't fit (Ally synergy cards, Hedron Blade (if your roomates don't play Eldrazi, it's useless)

Other: Try and have more than one copy if each card, consistency is better than the possibility of getting something.

Also the infamous brisela combo. Let dubious challenge pick Gisela, the Broken Blade and Bruna, the Fading Light and whatever your opponent picks flicker it and its all yours again, thus melding it on your end step. Profit!

Hamlet Captain and Hero of Bladehold can both boost your combat damage. Angelic Overseer and Bruna, the Fading Light seem to be nicely on theme. Cultivate and Kodama's Reach are great green staples for ramping out those angels faster. Gavony Township is a decent niche land for Selesnya.
