Dauntless Aven Discussion

cdkime on RW EDH Revised Brion

Crested Sunmare is an interesting card for this deck. It provides you a 5/5 indestructible blocker whenever you gain life--sacrifice this horse with Brion, gain some life via lifelink, and immediately gain another replacement horse in the next endstep.

I might think of adding more sacrifice outlets and untap mechanics. You have numerous capture spells, and several which capture multiple targets. A few more sacrifice outlets will allow you to use, attack, and then destroy these captures, even if there are several of them or your commander tapped/is not on the field. I found a couple which might be interesting, at budget-friendly prices:

Helm of Possession allows you to both destroy a borrowed creature and net another creature semi-permanently.

Ashnod's Altar provides and destroys one of their creatures.

Infernal Plunge nets you some mana when you sacrifice their creatures.

Scapegoat is fairly inexpensive to cast, and has a number of uses in this deck. Not only can you sacrifice a stolen creature, but you can also bounce other stolen creatures to their owners' hands and bounce your own thieves, such as Conquering Manticore.

Rupture has the downside of harming yourself. However, you have a solid number of flying creatures, so it may not affect your boardstate much.

There are some W instants (ex. Burst of Energy) and creatures (ex. Dauntless Aven), as well as some artifacts (ex. Thousand-Year Elixir) which untap creatures, and would allow you an additional fling with Brion. Not sure if any of these are efficient enough to be worth a card slot, but it might be worth playtesting.

So, since this isn't standard anymore what will you change? They took away Spirits, but you could try out the Avens for control and have a pretty decent deck. Aven Mindcensor, Nimble Obstructionist, Dauntless Aven, Aven Wind Guide, Tah-Crop Elite, Aven of Enduring Hope,and Dawnfeather Eagle are just a few. Maybe not the best, but it gives you a super cheap tribal until you can come up with something new.

I'd cut Djeru, With Eyes Open for a more low to the ground creature like Oketra's Avenger and/or Steward of Solidarity. Cutting Djeru's Resolve might help as well seeing as your creatures is looking to be aggressive. If Trueheart Duelist is under performing, you can cut it for more exert creatures or more Oketra's Monument. Gideon's Resolve might be too janky for an aggressive list like this, Dauntless Aven could also work as an untapper and an evasive threat. Just a few suggestions, hope these help.

Hey looks ok, i have the same comments as the other deck

2X Combat Celebrant 4X Dauntless Aven 4X Gust Walker remove Nef-Crop Entangler because Gust Walker is just the best exert commong.

Khenra Charioteer could be good in the deck as it gives your creatures Trample.

Also i would not include 4 Combat Celebrant, go down to 2.

Remove Saving Grace : your deck is designed to be aggro and thats a defensive card - instead try to use something that either just pumps or preferably pump and gives trample (instants) or use combat tricks that untap as you are exerting.

Oketra's Avenger should be 4

Vizier of the True i think 4 is too many. As the deck needs to be aggresive to get its advantages (exert), the creature itself is really small: a 3/2 for 4 many is terrible. I would only use 2 of them.

Dauntless Aven could be a great addition to untap

Holy crap take out the Dauntless Avens right frickin now. Put in Oketra's Monument and mainboard a couple Prowling Serpopard as it is a great 3 drop as it is.

Dr_Jay on Exert Yourself

I would say, if you are going for a budget Exert deck, you should focus on more exert lords, as well as some more efficient exert creatures themselves. In addition, untap effects may be important. Cards like Glory-Bound Initiate, Khenra Scrapper, and even Glorybringer could make for a good aggro deck. I would personally drop blue and add white, as a Naya colored deck would go well here. Resolute Survivors, Vizier of the True, and Watchful Naga are some of my favourites. For untap effects, I would recommend Dauntless Aven, Prepare and the like, along with others.
