StolenVHS on Balan, The Wandering Voltron

1 month ago

I forgot how good Silent Arbiter is. I'll probably have to find a place for him in my Balan deck. Ward of Bones is really neat, and something I'll probably try in my Neheb, the Eternal deck. Holy Mantle and Crackdown were 2 others in particular that wouldn't have crossed my mind, but are awesome inclusions. Check out the equipment base in my Balan deck to see if any of the niche stuff in there tickles your fancy. I tried to put in as many viable haste enablers as possible, like Haunted Cloak (which you have) and Fleetfeather Sandals, so that as soon as Balan comes down he can activate his ability and swing. Some other cards that are great for Balan that aren't in my build yet are Knight Exemplar and Bastion Protector. Sweet build, dude! Glad to see someone else running this dude. He's a house. P.S. Grafted Exoskeleton flat out kills people.

Cool deck, upvoted!

Fell the Mighty and Crackdown are great for Doran decks.

Please check out (and maybe upvote...) my Doran deck:

freakingShane on Bruna, Antithesis of Sympathy

I honestly recommend not going for a graveyard strategy solely because if you get any graveyard hate you can get shut down. I think have a teeny bit of stuff isn't bad, but I definitely wouldn't recommend the whole "dump half my library into my GY" strategy, haha.

That being said, I am in complete support with your game plan here. Bruna can be played a few different ways, but the smoother variation is the Control/Stax shell. That's the build I made for my wife, and it is brutal...if you'd like to see her's for reference/inspiration, I'll link it here. Also, I made a budget version that shares a lot of the same cards if you'd rather see that!

Okay, so now onto the fun stuff!

I would say that the deck should probably have around 20-30 enchantments. You don't want to have too many, but you want to make sure you hit the auras and such that you need.

Here are some card suggestions: Show

And here are some overall recommendations/advice: Show

I would include pretty much every Stax piece that doesn't really affect you.

Other good inclusions, although they affect everyone, would be: Show

1.) Battle Mastery + Eldrazi Conscription = 30 Commander Damage

2.) Battle Mastery + Corrupted Conscience = 10 Poison counters

3.) Eldrazi Conscription + Corrupted Conscience = 15 Poison counters

4.) Pariah + Indestructibility / Shielded by Faith / Inviolability = Damage immunity

5.) Rest in Peace + Helm of Obedience = Completely mill opponent

This is all my opinion though, so obviously keep everything you like! I'm not trying to tell you that anything is bad or that you have to do anything! It's your deck and you should enjoy it! :)

Let me know if you have any questions or anything!

Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit is a nice weenie card thats affordable.

Subjugator Angel clears a path and combos with Sunblast Angel.

Eerie Interlude reuses your ETB effects.

Crackdown is good, but may be to budget unfriendly.

Dang it, Wurmlover, you're really making me consider Meekstone again...

The only reason that it is not an auto-include is that it will hurt me, whereas Crackdown doesn't affect me at all. I will definitely have to mull this over again, though!

Thanks for stopping by and giving me something to really think on!

Meekstone is better and cheaper than Crackdown

This is a lot better, but I would recommend getting rid of Expedition Map unless you plan to run Serra's Sanctum in here. I guess Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is good to fetch, but other than that there aren't any lands worth using a whole slot for fetching only.

Speaking of lands, Temple of the False God is soon bad when it backfires. I would not consider it a staple. I will conclude this micro-rant by stating how mono-W does need all the ramp it can get, so if you insist on running it, go for it.

Sigil of the Empty Throne is still a great card. As well as Shielded by Faith and Indestructibility. The latter two combo with Pariah to prevent taking damage. Look, I get it. Avacyn, Angel of Hope gives everyone indestructibility, but what if you have Shielded by Faith, Pariah, and Angel of Jubilation by turn 5? Stall the game and win through the long game.

Overall the deck is significantly better. I approve. Especially because you through in Magus of the Moat, Crackdown, and Spelltithe Enforcer with all of the other tax and penalty cards.
