Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder Discussion

ToeJam on Tajic's Invincible Legion (Human Soldier Tribal)

The deck looks like a blast to play and very flavourful.

What do you think of putting in Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and/or Iroas, God of Victory? They're pretty cheap and Bruse is also human.

Furlycry on Burning Battalion

AiVsHumanity, MrMonkeyMan is actually my old account, I stopped using the site for awhile so I lost the login information, but I recently made a new one (This one obviously). I have the updated version of this deck on my new profile. But to answer your question, this deck was very fun to play, particularly in multiplayer games. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder works very well with Malignus and Heartless Hidetsugu. I have since made the deck more one on one based, but those three cards are still side boarded for multiplayer games. Its one of my more reliable decks for sure. You should check out my updated version. It is labeled Burn Battalion.

Perhaps ditch Ravos for another relevant partner such as Bruse Tarl (get to ditch black!) or Tymna (card draw potential strong with so many Saprolings going wide and Trample). I'd personally go with Bruse Tarl as giving Tana double strike/lifelink can be huge, and he doubles as a second Voltron option.

@Treehugger003, thanks for swinging by! (obligatory Akiri, Line-Slinger joke haha)

Do you also run Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder as her partner? I feel like that would make total sense given the aggressive nature of boros decks

Duelist's Heritage is one I absolutely need to get for this deck! Low-ish cmc and can be used as a political card on opponent's combat phases. The other two are cards that I own, but the avg cmc is so high already I'm worried about the speed of the deck

Sword of the Animist could be neat when attached to Aurelia to grab two lands per turn. I'll consider that one fosho. Knight of the White Orchid could replace a mana rock too

Outpost Siege has a similar ability to Chandra, Torch of Defiance, and she's going in the deck once I have a chance to sit down and make some changes. If I didn't already own a copy of her I'd likely use Outpost Siege as a budget alternative

What would be included in "a Sunforger package"? I have one leftover from taking apart Narset, Enlightened Master. I do have a couple instants that might make it worth it

@CChaos, wheels scare me too. Also Tormenting Voice and Cathartic Reunion are a good way to filter out crap in your hand, but they don't add any cards. I guess that's just what boros has to work with tho

Thanks again for the comments! Keep em comin!

Sarkhan_Dragonclaw348 on Sultai +1/+1 Counters

Personally, I prefer a different partnering: Reyhan with Kydele. In general, artifacts don't get many +1/+1 counters, so unless you've got lots of artifact creatures in the deck, you're probably out of luck. What does Silas do here? It's a split strategy, I think. The deck runs well without the aside on artifacts. Thrasios, Triton Hero has some synergy since he can ramp, which is always a green thing, and Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix benefits from card draw, which is a very Simic thing to do. If you have lots of things like Hangarback Walker in this deck, which benefit from dying and have +1/+1 counter synergy, AND are artifacts that Silas can use, great. But it looks like you're just using Silas because you didn't like the others. Unfortunately, artifacts are near the opposite of what green likes, and +1/+1 counters are near the opposite of what red likes, which is the main artifact color. The way I see it, if this were my deck, I'd do one of two things:- Cut Silas for a different partner commander and alter the 98 accordingly- Fill up with more artifact creatures that

These, I think, are the best partner synergies (in no particular order):

Akiri, Line-Slinger + Silas Renn, Seeker Adept for artifacts in WUBR

Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder + Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper + Tymna the Weaver for lifegain, in RWB, BGRW, or BGW

Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder + Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper + Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa + Tana, the Bloodsower + Tymna the Weaver + Silas Renn, Seeker Adept for decks that like to attack/deal combat damage, in BGRW, BGW, RWG, RBG, RWB, BURW, BUWG, WUB, BUGR (I think that's all of them)

Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker + Reyhan, Last of the Abzan for +1/+1 counters in nonred colors

Kraum, Ludevic's Opus + Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist + Vial Smasher the Fierce or Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix for card draw effects/benefits in UR, UBR, GUR (don't partner Vial Smasher and Kydele, it's not useful)

Tymna the Weaver + Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix for pay-life-draw-cards effects, and ramp in nonred colors

Tymna the Weaver + Vial Smasher the Fierce for deal-damage-draw-cards in Mardu colors

Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix + Reyhan, Last of the Abzan for sac-draw effects like Life's Legacy and Greater Good in BUG

Ravos, Soultender + Reyhan, Last of the Abzan for sac-reanimate effects in WBG

Thrasios, Triton Hero + Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix for card advantage and ramp in UG

Ravos, Soultender + Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa + Tana, the Bloodsower for token decks in WBG, WBRG, WBR

Okay. That's probably useless to you, but I was off on a tangent. Sorry. Anyway, to sum up: your deck is nice, but it would be a lot better if your commanders were synergistic. I have left many suggestions above.

feyn_do_alduin on Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER*

1 month ago

I'm thinking of tweeking this list by swapping out avacyn for Akiri, Line-Slinger and maybe Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder for the partner, though he in all likelihood is simply going to be omitted.

I mean, naturally i'm going to swap out most of the creatures and such for artifact ones, and some exalted stuff like Battlegrace Angel, Knight of Glory, and Aven Squire
