Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder Discussion

yant0028 on Odric, Lunarch Marshal + Xenagos, ...

Scenario: I cast Primeval's Glorious Rebirth returning a bunch of Legendary creatures to play, among which are Xenagos, God of Revels, Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Ghalta, Primal Hunger and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder.

Bruse gave Ghalta Lifelink and Double Strike. I go to combat and Xenagos and Odric both trigger. I choose to stack them so that Xenagos will resolve first, giving Ghalta Haste. When I go to attackers, can I swing with all my newly-returned creatures thanks to Odric granting them all Haste (and Lifelink, Trample, Double Strike, etc. etc.)? Is that an intervening if clause in Odric's text box that prevents this from working?

Thanks in advance!

Because Akiri has partner, I would suggest that you use Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder as a second commander. He is in the deck, so you may as well. I like the deck though.

You have two copies of Skyshroud Claim, replace one with Kodama's Reach. Consider replacing the mana dorks and rocks with more land ramp like Harrow, Search for Tomorrow, and Nissa's Pilgrimage. Dowsing Dagger  Flip and Sword of the Animist are also helpful. Add Mirari's Wake as well. You might need to increase your land count a bit, maybe 36 lands.

Some of your creature choices seem a bit weird. Thornscape Familiar doesn't help much because most of your deck is green. What are you trying to do with the creatures, go wide or go big? Because Archangel of Thune and Emeria Angel are more for going wide. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder is probably better than Silverblade Paladin. Emeria Shepherd is helpful if you replace some of the Forests with Plains.

Creatures you could try include Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Blightsteel Colossus, Combustible Gearhulk, Scourge of the Throne, Terastodon, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Xenagos, God of Revels, Gruul Ragebeast, Moldgraf Monstrosity, Molten Primordial, Artisan of Kozilek, and Void Winnower.

Saw your reddit post but don't have an account over there. My question to you would be: Are you looking to make a Mayael deck or just a Naya elf/angel deck? If you want the former, then you need more big creatures. If the latter, then I would suggest a commander like Gahiji, Honored One, Samut, Voice of Dissent, or Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa/Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder.

Have you considered dropping Horde as your Commander and black and instead running Thrasios, Triton Hero and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder? Youre not running anything black that I can tell so it would help out your mana base a little bit. Both are good in different situations (one if youve got free mana and the other if youre trying to get ahead in combat) and Bruse-y can be used to pod into Kiki Jiki. If you find a spot for Deceiver Exarch Thrasios can do the same for that as well

Rock Slingers is my voltron deck. Line slinger gets voltron, while silas is used as buff and recursion. it has not been fine tuned yet.

Also the combo of Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder can be used as a good voltron commander pairing. I run this as a jeskai fliers deck, but can quickly one shot people without trying to run as voltron. As Ishai gets big quickly, get her up to 11 and give her double strike with Bruse to get 22 commander damage.

It sounds to me that you really want to make an energy deck. Energy representing Vibranium of course. In that case, to fully match the theme of the movie you could have partner commanders like Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and Kraum, Ludevic's Opusto represent T'challa and Killmonger. For other options you could have Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker and Akiri, Line-Slinger respectively representing Shuri (the sister) and Okoye (the really badass one). I got nothing for Martin Freeman's character I'm afraid.

In any case, I again would recommend an artifacts/energy build, with a possible sub-theme of equipment voltron (to show off when Killmonger wanted to drop all tradition and just got to war with everyone).
