Coldsteel Heart Discussion

DragonFaceEater on Prowess is cool I guess...

For a deck based around noncreature spells, this sure has a lot of creatures in it. Now, I haven't played a prowess deck before, but I feel like you don't need to run every single prowess creature in here, especially cards like Bloodfire Expert, Dragon Bell Monk, Ingenious Skaab, Jeskai Sage, Jeskai Student, Mage-Ring Bully, Sanguinary Mage, Spellweaver Eternal, Umara Entangler, none of which have any significant abilities. To replace these, I'd run some mana ramp, which you have a criminally low amount of (one, in Chandra, Torch of Defiance). You could run Sol Ring, an EDH staple that every deck needs, also Azorius Signet, Izzet Signet, and Boros Signet, and if you want to get rid of your ramp later in the game, Mind Stone, Commander's Sphere, Hedron Archive, and Dreamstone Hedron will suit your needs. Some other ramp cards that can work really well in your deck are Chromatic Lantern, Coalition Relic, Coldsteel Heart, Corrupted Grafstone, Darksteel Ingot, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Fellwar Stone, Gilded Lotus, Khalni Gem, Primal Amulet  Flip, and Pyromancer's Goggles. Obviously, you souldn't run all of these, but you should definitely consider them. The average commander deck should have around 10 ramp cards, though yours may want a few less, considering it's an aggro-ish deck. Also, Ponder's really good.

jakethewhale007: Those sound like great changes! I'd definitely keep the Coldsteel Heart and the Dowsing Dagger  Flip, though :) Have fun purifying your opponents' sins!! Glad to help cleanse another playgroup ;)

I'm in class at the moment, but I'll check over your list more closely in a few hours :)

Hey there Daedalus! I decided to increase my budget slightly, from $250 to $290. However, as a result, the overall cuts I had to make were very minimal! Luckily, I was able to find some good deals on ebay and tcgplayer haha. Anyway, here is how my list currently stands when compared to yours:

OUT: Mana Crypt, Memory Jar, Mox Opal, Wheel of Fortune, Aggravated Assault, Argentum Armor

IN: Coldsteel Heart, Reforge the Soul, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Armageddon, Ruination, Cataclysm

I've also cut some of the non-basic lands you were running in favor of more basics (mostly for budget reasons + Ruination synergy). I'd really like to hear your thoughts on these changes and make any adjustments as necessary based on your response. I am considering swapping Coldsteel Heart for, say, Mind Stone or Worn Powerstone, but I thought Coldsteel seemed better for the fixing. Dowsing Dagger seems pretty sweet, especially when I can combo it with MLD. It would be an epic play to destroy all lands, then transform the dagger afterwards. I'm just curious as to whether I should include a Mind Stone or Worn Powerstone (or other rock) in its place.

Thank you so much for your time reading this! My decklist is below in case you would prefer to see it in that layout. :)

Oh, and I appreciate the warning about the dangers of running MLD. However, my playgroup is very understanding and open to all strategies, so I know they won't be salty. Also, one of my friends plays a Kess Extra Turns deck, and the other plays a Baral deck filled to the brim with counterspells... so as far as I'm concerned, the MLD is justified to cleanse them of their sin :)

Overall, I am super excited that I was able to build what seems to be a pretty close version of your deck on a sub-$300 budget. I can't wait to purify my next EDH game! :) Thanks again for your help, I appreciate it so much.

jakethewhale007: Thank you for your interest in the deck! :)

The MLD package is definitely helpful, although I feel I owe you a warning that it WILL draw a lot of hate from most playgroups.

Of your changes, I'd probably run Armageddon or Alms Collector over Chandra Ablaze: she's somewhat disappointing out of red spellslinger IMO. I'd also consider running Coldsteel Heart over Star Compass (since it lets you mana fix), and Dowsing Dagger  Flip as an additional source of ramp/power. I'd also use Lightning Greaves over Mask of Avacyn - I'm aware of the downsides of shroud, but I suspect the free equip is good enough in your variant of the list to overcome that. The rest of the changes seem very reasonable :)

Given that the loss of fast ramp will slow down the temp somewhat, you could run some more late-game midrange effects like Repercussion and Cloudshift?

I hope that helps :)

I would recommend taking a few counterspells out for more draw and ramp options. Having more cards in hand, and more mana to spend, will help ensure you greater consistency.

Recurring Insight, Flow of Ideas, and Future Sight are great on the higher-cmc end, and will put in all the work of Thought Reflection more consistently. Fact or Fiction, Rhystic Study, Day's Undoing, Thassa, God of the Sea, and Mystic Remora all put in great work on the lower end.

As for ramp, Solemn Simulacrum, Burnished Hart, Wayfarer's Bauble, Sky Diamond, Coldsteel Heart, and Fellwar Stone are all good.

What do you plan on doing when a threat actually hits the battlefield? I would think about Cyclonic Rift, Evacuation, AEtherize, Wipe Away, Echoing Truth, Pongify, and Reality Shift.

There are also a few lands you might want to consider, like Terrain Generator, Strip Mine, Ghost Quarter, Myriad Landscape, Temple of the False God, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Reliquary Tower, Glacial Chasm, to name a few. You should probably add at least 5-7 more lands as it is.

Hi! Saw your post on the forums, glad to see more Brion players out there.

In response to the forum post: in my personal experience Stalking Vengeance never did much for me. but with the choice between Insurrection or Aurelia, the Warleader, I'd cut the Warleader.

Now after having a look at your deck, I've got a few suggestions!

First off, you have a lot of high costed(6-8 mana) spells, but almost no ramp to speak of.

Boros Signet, Coldsteel Heart, Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, Fire Diamond, Hedron Archive, Marble Diamond, and Mind Stone are all good options. Focus on the 2 mana ramps because that a) allows for a turn 3 Brion and b) doesn't slow you down as much in the late game.

Ramp is important, and so is card draw. Unfortunately, Boros sucks at both. Still, artifacts like Well of Lost Dreams and Skullclamp are great, so through in some more like Infiltration Lens and Mask of Memory. Solemn Simulacrum is great too, though price is an issue(Kor Cartographer is the budget version). The color red also provides you with wheel effects, you have a couple but Reforge the Soul would help you I think.

Now the boring stuff is out of the way. How about some big creatures?! Hamletback Goliath, Thunderblust, and Serra Avatar are some good sackable fatties, and give great value for your dollar! Sun Titan is some good recursion.

Now for some win conditions to bounce off ya: Phyrexian Processor! Here's what you need: 9 mana, at least 1 more life than your opponent, and Brion on the field. Play the processor, pay most of your life, make a X/X creature, sack it to Brion, kill your opponent and gain all the life back! Works great with damage/lifegain doublers.

Phyrexian Devourer! Here's how he works. Exile cards off your library until he hits seven and his ability triggers, then sack him with Brion in response to the trigger, then keep exileing cards in respone to that to get it's power up to more than your opponents, then all that resolves and kills someone. This can all happen turn 7 which is nice.

Other random cards I've had fun with:Rite of the Raging Storm, Fatal Frenzy, and Neheb, the Eternal!

Cut suggestions. Whenever I'm cutting stuff I look at the top of my curve first and move down. How much are these 6, 7, 8 mana spells doing for you? I'd take a long look at the two Akromas and some of the other angels, Stalking Vengeance, and Ryusei, the Falling Star. Further down the curve I see Taj-Nar Swordsmith(not using him to full potential), Magus of the Disk(just use the disk) and Vesuva(replace with Clifftop Retreat).

Hopefully some of this helps! Check out my Brion deck for a reference!

Yes I have 33 lands, but lands are not the only things that I use for mana. I also have Sol Ring, Boros Signet, Orzhov Signet, Rakdos Signet, Talisman of Indulgence Coldsteel Heart, Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, and Solemn Simulacrum. That equals a total 42 mana producers, which works fine for me. I have considered more lands, but in this case I prefer these mana accelerators because they help me cast the late game cards you mentioned faster.

As for Warstorm Surge, and Chandra's Ignition: I like Warstorm Surge, and Chandra's Ignition but not in this creature light, enchantment heavy deck. Plus the creatures I do run do not have much power.

Thanks for the suggestions
