Unlife: Eldrazi Monument cost is kinda up there. As for Storm Herd, i dont use it because most of my token producers are chosen because they keep on giving and have med to low cmc. Plus by the time i get ten mana ill be wanting to cast other stuff. Also im steering away from anthem cuz they tend to have high cost nd imo arent worth it.

Steelspike:Crackdown and Crawlspace are both good. Ive considered both before. I consider them more staxy than taxy. Ill consider them again. Now Contagion Engine for some reason i never considered before nd i think its a good suggestion. Not sure i like the others you mentioned. Im unfamiliar with that combo but i will look more into it.

Profet93 Thank you! Gotta do what you gotta do in mono white. Dont have much to work with. Ive been considering Mind's Eye for a while nd i think i will add it in there.

Thank you all for your time.

Crawlspace and Crackdown seem like pretty good tax cards...

Also, Umbilicus/Blood Clock and Contagion Engine seem pretty good.

Omen Machine is great against control decks. Also, you can bounce it with Blood Clock/Umbilicus so you can skip the reveal if you want. With Vedalken Orrery you can play it during your opponents upkeep, or keep it for a political reasons.

Just a few thoughts. :)

Flagellum on Big Booty Gang

Can't believe I missed Mentor of the Meek for card draw in my Doran deck. Apparently I haven't updated my deck for a while now. My deck focuses on punishing creatures based on their power. But I have a few ideas to run by you, use them as you wish:

Abzan Beastmaster: card draw

Eidolon of Rhetoric: can neuter some decks and has a nice body to boot.

Guiltfeeder: Possible evasion and can hit for 4 with Doran out. Added damage is better the longer the game goes on.

Kami of Old Stone: I don't care for vanilla critters but this one was too good to pass up

Marble Titan: another Meekstone v2.0

Necroskitter: steals opponent's critters and plays nicely with Obelisk Spider and his infect friends Priests of Norn and Tangle Angler.

Priests of Norn/Tangle Angler: See above, Also can be finishers with cards like Tower Defense ect.

Raving Dead: testing this out. Can be brutal with cards like Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa/Behind the Scenes or after a wrath effect that targets higher powered critters. It's a Quietus Spike with legs.

Sun Titan: recursion

Tree of Redemption: huge with Assault Formation or a last ditch life saver.

Noetic Scales: currently testing but probably the first thing to be cut.

Crackdown, Retribution of the Meek, Wave of Reckoning: all higher power critter punishing cards

My deck if you want more ideas:

StolenVHS on Balan, The Wandering Voltron

3 months 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!
