You really need some cards besides removal to stave off threats. For a start Snapcaster is practically mandatory. I'd also reccomend things like Celestial Colonnade or other man lands. Some options in terms of creatures is needed. You could be cheeky and have Muddle the Mixture to be removal or transmute into stoneforge. Also I recommend cutting Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip It's cheeky and neat but wayyy slow.

Rakathar, Deceiver of Mortals

Legendary Creature - Cat Demon


Whenever you cast a spell that targets a permanent an opponent controls, you may copy that spell and have the copy target a permanent of the same type that you control. If you do, scry 2 then draw a card.

"The folly of mortals is their lack of wisdom. Those who live for decades, even centuries, fall short of experience."


I'll be honest, I have literally no idea if this is a good card, a bad card, a broken card, or a balanced card. But it would definitely brew some interesting EDH decks, and that's for damn sure.

So we have Westvale Abbey  Flip and Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip that both transform into Legendary Demons.

I'd like to see a card that transforms into a Legendary Angel, please :)

Thanks for the upvote and the comment heckproof, and yes, I am looking at other stuff for this deck. Always love to tweek decks to add my own flavor. Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip and Sword of Light and Shadow came to mind.

Hello fellow Skullbriar player,

I like your deck-list a lot! I like how you are running Triumph of the Hordes . I never really thought of going that direction for a win. You’re also running a lot more creatures which is cool to see!

The “Umbras” are also key. I think I’m running Snake and Spider Umbra and no Bear Umbra .

Skullbriar for me, is the perfect deck to throw a bunch of combat trick stuff and janky pumps/unblockables like: Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip, Hot Soup , Prowler's Helm , Epic Proportions , Gigantomancer , Emergent Growth , Berserk , Hatred , Hunt the Weak , Trailblazer's Boots , Burst of Strength , Might of Oaks and Enlarge (so hilarious to pull-off). Here is my Skullbriar brew

A few of what I mentioned like Hatred I'm not actually running due to budget but hope to eventually have in the deck one day. Dauthi Embrace is another really good idea for unblockable too.

Hope some of that helps!

XxFATMAN247xX, Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip doesn't transform the creature it's equipped to. It transforms itself, turning into Withengar Unbound .

Hey, this looks like a ton of fun to play! One thing I noticed: unfortunately, Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip has a black color identity due to the color indicator on its' flip side, so you can't play it with Odric. You could use Akroma's Memorial instead, its an artifact loaded with keywords, and can function independently from Odric, which helps with board wipes.

It might also be worth considering putting in Gisela, the Broken Blade and Bruna, the Fading Light , 'cause Brisela, Voice of Nightmares seems like exactly what you're looking for.

Lone Rider  Flip is white on the front, colorless on the back.

Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip is colorless on the front, black on the back. Note that Withengar Unbound has a color indicator that It That Rides as One lacks.
