Bruna, the Fading Light Discussion

drohack on Kaalia call of Brisela

Here is my attempt to figure out my "7 by 9" classification of my deck (Referenced article about "7 by 9"). It appears I've slightly reversed it and have a "9 by 7" ratio. Some cards also overlap, but I put them in their main use case category.

After looking at the list though I only have 7 categories of cards which means I could look to add a new category by removing some of the weaker cards in each of the existing categories.

Target Protection (10)

Removal (8)

Tutor (9)

Draw (10)

Revive (8)

Utility (9)

Meld (6)

Mana (5 + 35 - 1)

So firstly you really want to focus this deck on a few key creatures. Angels are notoriously hard to build around as they are all so expensive so I would recommend adopting a prison style deck to bide your time before being able to play your angels. For this you want things like Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, and Luminarch Ascension.

As for the creatures, Serra Avenger is an auto include, I would also play Kami of False Hope and Thalia, Heretic Cathar to further slow down your opponent. You probably want Archangel Avacyn  Flip as your angel bomb along with the meld package of multiple Gisela, the Broken Blade and 1 Bruna, the Fading Light and from there use support angels like Angel of Sanctions, Angel of Condemnation, and Emancipation Angel.

You want 4 Path to Exile or an alternative such as Banishing Light or Cast Out for your removal package. You may also want to splash blue for some counters or Geist of Saint Traft (cheap effective creature).

Finally I would say you want to be playing 24-25 lands seeing the mana cost of angels. If you need any help feel free to ask me I love angels.

jubale thanks for the opinions and I was looking into Yahenni's Expertise as an option. As for the Raz sac targets ...typically I'll have a thraben inspectors or zombie token from either big lilly or recycling from baby Lilly. Generally speaking Raz is a secondary win con. Also another fun trick is to sac Gisela, the Broken Blade to search for Bruna, the Fading Light.

There is a lot of work that could be done here to improve this deck. What Captain does very well is setting up a board state that is next to impossible for your opponents to deal with and overwhelming them with brute force.

However your current build is missing a few important tools first Heroes' Podium and Time of Need for more tutoring. Saffi Eriksdotter is a good combo card with things like Karmic Guide, Sun Titan, and Reveillark which are all good cards on their own.

Then for the real meat of the deck you want Gaddock Teeg to shut out most board clear effects. Sigarda, Host of Herons to protect against sacrifice effects and then her sisters Bruna, the Fading Light and Gisela, the Broken Blade because they form Brisela, Voice of Nightmares which shuts out everything Gaddock Teeg doesn't.

Lastly this is a super heavy mana cost deck and the average land count of commander decks is about 35. You are at 34 and you have very little ramp. Here are a few good options to aid you there Selesnya Signet, Solemn Simulacrum, Kodama's Reach, and Cultivate.

Spirits on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

Hi Oroborus91,

Yes!! There are many ways to cut costs in Kaalia of the Vast, you can easily cut $600 to $650 in lands alone. To keep the consistency you may need to trade fetching/dual lands in for some enters tapped scry lands, but even if you lose 1-3 turns of speed, it is still viable. Ash Barrens.

There is a great article on some to the creatures, Kaalia of the Vast - The Benchwarmers. I found it quite a fun article when I read it, and the big Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Rune-Scarred Demon with big red "CUT" printed on them is pretty funny. There are many great A/D/D that have low financial value that are quite excellent!

Could go in a dragon direction with Oros, the Avenger or protection in Deathless Angel. Admonition Angel can be superstar in the right build, Archangel Avacyn  Flip is down in price, Archfiend of Depravity is a barg-oon, Bruna, the Fading Light can give you a nice Brisela, Voice of Nightmares. Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is awesome, Maralen of the Mornsong. Reya Dawnbringer can also be quite powerful.

Really creature wise your only losing Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Balefire Dragon that are over $10. Some of the other guys like Dark Confidant and Serra Ascendant or Stoneforge Mystic are really just fluff and can easily be changed out.

Same with the artifacts, Mana Crypt and Chrome Mox easily cut, I would keep the Chromatic Lantern though.

Hope some ideas here or in the article.

Vaan on U/W Standard Control

I would try swapping Forsake the Wordly for Cast Out, it's a cheaper cycler and can deal with a wider array of threats, maybe run 2 Cast Out mainboard and 2 Forsake the Wordly on the sideboard.

I believe running Glimmer of Genius instead of Pull from Tomorrow would improve the deck quite a bit. I also believe you're a bit heavy on threats, Thalia, Heretic Cathar is at her best when buying you time to push damage in so she feels kinda out of place to me and the Bruna, the Fading Light/Gisela, the Broken Blade Meld dream is cool and all but not the optimal way of doing things. I would cut those extra threats and put in more spot removal and draw spells.

Ares111123 on Chandra/Bolas Control - HOU

I wouldnt touch the Censors as its extremely important early game and late game its basically an Obsessive Search.

I agree With +1Pull from Tomorrow but theres nothing i'd want to drop other than Glimmer of Genius and that random Negate.

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is a genius idea for a 2 of in sideboard, The Scarab God is a no-go for me as The Locust God is a much better fit.

If you've never seen Combustible Gearhulk make an impact you've never seen it hit the board.

I wouldnt main board Sphinx as yes its an amazing card but what will it do against a non control deck? Be a 5/5 that'll die when someone drops down a board wipe cough Bontu's Last Reckoning cough and when someone drops a card like Bruna, the Fading Light

As Foretold is close to my favorite card in standard right now so it means a lot when i say dont put it in. I built a deck around it and have 20 cards i can play on my opponents turn and made it bant control. Now it is an amazing card in the deck when i get it out but i strongly believe thats because i formed the deck around the card. If you want to add a 3 drop add another Anticipate, its 1 mana cheaper.
