Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder Discussion

DespairFaction on Aurelia, the Warleader - Budget

14 hours ago

Hey I have a few more suggestions for you. You'll want to cut the following cards. Anya has super sweet art, but does literal nothing for 5 mana, and you want your 5 mana cards to have tons of impact and tons of damage. Also cut Nobilis of War, its really hard to cast since colorless mana doesn't work, and doesn't have enough impact on 5 mana. You'll want to cut Cerodon Yearling, you really want abilities and utility from your low drops and the damage dealing will come from your bigger cards. Creature wise Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder is absurd. It supplied 54 damage over 4 turns the other night. Odric, Lunarch Marshal makes all of your creatures awesome, and if damage is the thing you are after look no further than Heartless Hidetsugu. It makes everyones life total about 10, but if that's a bit too much for your liking Glorybringer is really solid. Also, you really want to add Worn Powerstone and Thran Dynamo they allow you to make so much more mana throughout the game than you would have been able to otherwise.

I rebuilt one of my old Aurelia lists into a new monster. It can kill on turn 6 pretty regularly without a sol ring or mana crypt opener. Its basically all of the most efficient damage dealers, and just enough removal to get by. Highly recommend you check it out, will give you lots of ideas. The New Warleader

Longhorn Firebeast seems to be the last non changeling ox creature atm.

Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder also has an ox in his art.

Penguno on Deflection Themed EDH

I'm trying to make a deck that's all about deflecting spells (such as Wild Ricochet or Goblin Flectomancer and damage (such as Deflecting Palm). I'm probably thinking of going Jeskai, unless there's a better color combination going out there.
I ideally wanted to make it very monk-themed.

Currently I'm using the partner commanders Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder solely for the purpose of making a target for my deflection spells.

Is there any other thing I could use to make this kind of deck work? After much testing, it appears as though I need more draw/filtering spells. What kinds of draws would you recommend that could fit my theme?

Any feedback would be appreciated!

DrukenReaps on Akiri Artifact EDH

You should really take advantage of the Partner ability on your commander and add either Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder or Silas Renn, Seeker Adept. Silas would add a lot of potential to your deck by giving access to two additional colors but Bruse will allow you to knock players out of the game by giving Akiri doublestrike.

If you are not aware a player loses the game if they take 21 damage from any single commander. The partner ability allows you to run 2 commanders but the deck must still add up to 100 cards. So it will be 98 + commanders.

These pages can be a little overwhelming but I would highly recommend looking them over for ideas on what people will usually run. These are just suggestions though.

You have made some fun choices already. I would get that land count up to 36 though and put in Great Furnace, Ancient Den, and Darksteel Citadel. Looks like you are hurting on removal too. Some people recommend starting a deck with 36 lands, 10 draw sources, 10 removal, and 10 accel (usually mana rocks) and then changing things as you play the deck to match your style better.

Cool project you got there...I'm thinking the partners Akiri, Line-Slinger & Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder as a possible cEDH voltron with MLD and artifact destruction (like Boil) for a start. Since stax is out of the question, maybe a Sunforger package including Pyroblast/Red Elemental Blast/Lapse of Certainty/Dawn Charm/Mana Tithe. Obviously tutors including Enlightened Tutor/Gamble/etc. Additionally, Puresteel Paladin/Sigarda's Aid should be in there.

Oh I built a somewhat similar deck to this with Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder instead of Sidar but there’s some cards that can work in both decks. True Conviction is always good and Berserkers' Onslaught can be pretty good. Assemble the Legion is nice if you can keep it around a couple turns. Odric, Master Tactician is really good cause it basically gives all your creatures unblockable (unless you want then to be blocked). Also Eldrazi Monument is reeeaaally good - I played a game where I got true conviction and eldrazi monument out and won in a couple turns with just Tana and the minions she was making

Akiri, Line-Slinger + Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder can work quite nicely. Artifact provide your ramp and Stax and since Akiri has both vigilance and first strike, Winter Orb like effects do nothing to her and she is really hard hitting. Bruse Tarl giving her double strike is just nasty.

@Homelessguy forgot about Anointed Procession. I do own that too. When you first mentioned adding white, I thought of Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder. Your style with Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa and going wide looks super fun. +1 for sure

@goblinguiderevealpls LOL also do you find other ppl taking advantage of the dubs?

@DrukenReaps Prossh wouldn't be easy. Either get attacks in early or expect to be controlled out

Marath looks like he/she gobbles up a lot of mana for sure. That's why I figured prossh was neat since the tokens happen even if he's Counterspelled. I have three other edh decks lead by elementals so it would be flavorful there too. I've seen your build before and it's rad. It won't let me upvote a second time ;)

@luther unique idea with the enchantment theme. I'll look through what I have. Uril, the Miststalker would be some inspiration

Ghave, Guru of Spores is cool too. I have a friend where I used to live that ran it for a while. Some of these cards we're talking about weren't even printed then and it was still real good. I have a Doran, the Siege Tower deck for my fiancee and that's where most of my abzan resources lie

@MindAblaze right? Trostani takes out some of the mess with only two colors too. One of the guys in our lgs league ran it a couple games I think. It didn't "combo out" but you'd think it had with the amount of tokens produced

@Rzepkanut you're probably right. Prossh and Marath do paint a giant target on your back. What do you think about the temur idea? I've never seen that pair before, and using Thrasios as a mana dump is very useful in a standoff. He's also like tier 1.5 tho

I am trying to avoid combos for now I think. With multiple other decks that go infinite; this will add some variety. I'll literally disassemble a combo The Locust God deck if I go temur (then maybe build izzet artifacts later with the new commander decks coming). Prossh and Marath would have combos pending Food Chain

Mono green is a new idea. Shamanic Revelation, Regal Force and friends can really keep it rolling. Baru's anthem effect catches people off guard i bet when you dump excessive amounts of lands onto the 'field. Bramble Sovereign is a new addition to the token fleet. Might be worth considering. I'm running it in my Omnath, Locus of Mana deck

Thank you so much everyone for the comments!!! So many things to consider!
