NKlim on Sarkhan’s Unsealing

7 months ago

I see a lot of fun potential in this deck. I think you should definitely run Simian Spirit Guide as the additional mana means you may be able to drop Sarkhan's Unsealing early. This is important as the mana cost f your other creatures means that by turn 4-5 with Simians you may be able to drop 2 creatures and hit the opponent for 8+ damage. I would also put Bloodthorn Taunter in the deck, as having haste on Inferno Hellion and Cosmic Larva has the potential to do a lot of damage in one turn. I may include Leyline of Punishment and possibly Insult / Injury instead of Crater's Claws in the sideboard Is there a specific reason you use Fling over Thud ? Thud is at sorcery speed but very few of your creatures live to your next turn so you may as well drop them and attack then thud for double damage.

I hope I didn't rip your deck to shred... btw I love the idea of the deck

Shintasama on Brion's Requiem

It seems like this commander would do well with high power/low durability/downside cards like Phyrexian Dreadnought, Arc Runner, Ball Lightning, Blistering Firecat, Impetuous Devils, Crumbling Colossus, Blistering Barrier, Bloodmad Vampire, Cosmic Larva, Keldon Vandals, Lavacore Elemental, Loxodon Peacekeeper, Mijae Djinn, Okk, Phyrexian Soulgorger, Wall of Razors, Wall of Torches, Inferno Hellion, Iroas, God of Victory, Spark Trooper, Thunderblust, Traxos, Scourge of Kroog, Volcano Hellion, etc, etc. Cast creature -> attack in (if possible) -> sacrifice if it won't do damage/do damage then sacrifice for even more damage.

Bonus points for slapping buffs the creature before flinging, e.g.: Blazing Shoal, Reckless Charge, Fatal Frenzy, Rush of Blood, Brute Force, etc. Instant/enchantment double strike might be good for per-sacrifice combat round as well.

or really kick things up with Feldon of the Third Path and the biggest thing you can get in your graveyard.

Kederekt on So uh... Brion... How far can you throw that goat?

Yo. I would add Hazoret's Favor, Cosmic Larva, and maybe Vicious Shadows. Also, you definitely need 40 lands.

FireSeal on Cosmic Larva

If it's land destruction it's too mean. Still, it could be meaner... Maybe Molten Rain instead of Pillage and Avalanche Riders instead of Cosmic Larva; you don't have to win big if your deck is this oppressive. I would also consider Akki Blizzard-Herder and Crack the Earth (If you get rid of the Cosmic Larva you can free up some land slots and add some more gas to keep up the pressure. If you want it to feel a little less one-sided you could consider Steam Vines and Shivan Wumpus, but it would be, strictly speaking, worse. This seems like a cool, all or nothing deck. Should be fun to play every once-in-a-while.

Why green? Surely this is a deck that would rather jam Pentad Prism for that single turn burst damage.

I'd also like to see some more creatures over vines and slip- possibly even Act of Aggression. Lupine Prototype is a solid Lava Axe which can be a creature when you need it. Cards like Keldon Marauders are also solid options, with things like Ball Lightning into thud looking outright terrifying- killing a player from 12 on an empty board.

Cosmic Larva is a big body, and by the time you are leaving it on the battelfield the lands don't matter, so its worth a look. Similarly, Devastating Summons as a 1 or 2 of seems really strong when a game is stalling.

B/R has some flying bricks which are also worth a look- Falkenrath Aristocrat and the like are both good fuel and likely to get an attack in before getting sacced.

Last but by no means least- Whip of Erebos. Big lifelink creatures are good, and graveyard recursion on them is very strong.

Fervor isn't Mass Hysteria or Ashling's Prerogative either...

For real though, it seems like its a managable archetype if you build around those cards. Phyrexian Soulgorger and Cosmic Larva let you hit like a truck.

DrkNinja on The Olympic Discus Throw *WIP*

So I'm a believer that the best way to build this deck is through playing big dudes with no butt for dirt cheap! So cards like Ball Lightning, Cosmic Larva, Blistering Firecat, Phyrexian Dreadnought, and Nova Chaser (fyi you can respond to Nova Chaser and Dreadnought's ability on the stack and sack them into Brion). Malignus is also great and I think a STAPLE in this deck. Other than that...

Oh and this may be obvious, but in this deck always swing your creatures before you sac them into Brion! You never know what your opponent will do but at least you will force them to react, and then be able to react accordingly.
