Cerebral Eruption Discussion

Skullclamp, Cathars' Crusade, and Reconnaissance feel like must haves in this deck. They all synergize with your main strategy and/or help to enable it.

Recruiter of the Guard, Karmic Guide, Viashino Heretic, Anarchist, Selfless Spirit and Iroas, God of Victory are creatures that would fit in quite well with your general strategy.

Instead of Mizzium Mortars and Cerebral Eruption as boardwipes; Wrath of God, Terminus, Toxic Deluge or Blasphemous Act would be better.

I would actually play Sorin, Solemn Visitor over Sorin, Lord of Innistrad as Solemn Visitor's + ability is something you want more than either of Lord of Innistrads abilities.

Enablers like Buried Alive, Victimize, Oversold Cemetery and Viscera Seer will help you to ensure you have things in your graveyard to abuse.

Your also lacking good finishers and Alesha tends to lean towards combos. For example, any sac outlet with Murderous Redcap and Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit will infinitely ping everyone.

Try Virulent Plague instead of Cerebral Eruption. Anger of the Gods is already a boardwipe and Cerebral Eruption is high cmc for your deck?

Cards I don't see doing much:Disciple of BolasMortivore without trample equipment (Loxodon Warhammer?)Dominus of Fealty the mana cost will make it hard to castCerebral Eruption could wiff and hit a 1 cmc spellRise from the Grave and Breaking//Entering there are better reanimator effectsFeldon's Cane not sure what this is forCrucible of Worlds same hereSoul's Fire One time use, not quite good enoughUndermine play Counterspell insteadCountermand play Dissipate or Void Shatter before these

Things I would add:Reanimators:Animate Dead, Diabolic Servitude, Torrent of Souls (for haste), Beacon of Unrest, Reanimate, Cauldron Dance, Coffin Queen, Dawn of the Dead if you have a reliable sac outlet for him, and Corpse Dance.

Next add some draw spells, wheel effects are strong in these colors and let you pitch big fatties to reanimate later. Windfall, Wheel of Fortune, and anything in between.

Other suggestions:

Thornbite StaffInsidious Dreams pitch fatties, top deck reanimator spells.

That's all I can come up with right now

Nice deck, I'm a big fan of Shu Yun, I feel like he exemplifies the balance between creatures and non-creature spells with his abilities, which can definitely be difficult to maintain.

As far as more land suggestions go, I would highly recommend Command Tower for any EDH deck. I also think Skycloud Expanse, Glacial Fortress, Prairie Stream, Temple of Enlightenment, Temple of Triumph, Needle Spires, and Wandering Fumarole could be good options.

The following are rare burn spells that can return themselves to your hand for multiple times casting, so you can trigger Prowess and Shu Yun's second ability multiple times each: Cerebral Eruption, Hammer of Bogardan, Pulse of the Forge, Rekindled Flame, Titan's Revenge, and Volcanic Vision.

Umbilicus/Blood Clock allows you to return low CMC artifacts and enchantments to your hand on each of your upkeeps, so that you can cast them again to trigger Shu Yun's abilities, while also making your opponents lose life if they don't return permanents to their hands during their upkeeps.

Since this is an aggro deck I would suggest using Boros Keyrune, as it provides you witb mana and a 1/1 creature to use some of your other cards' effects.Altough it consumes a lot of mana Aurelia, the Warleader is a great choice as well as Spark Trooper, Rekindled Flame and Cerebral Eruption are cards you can run on the sideboard, and I would definetly recommend some card draw.

I would Cut Desperate Ravings, Island, Mountain (as you have too many lands), Cerebral Eruption, Urza's Rage for this put in Blasphemous Act, and Mizzium Mortars. I think the deck is fine personally.
