Why are you not running Seat of the Synod and Great Furnace? I would consider swapping Fling for Galvanic Blast or Thoughtcast, only Scuttling Doom Engine is a good target for Fling anyway.

Suns_Champion on Looking For a New Commander

Hello! my personal favorite and a commander I'm having a ton of fun with is Brion Stoutarm.


-has synergies

-doesn't use artifacts as much

-not combo or stax


-don't need him 100% the time(Fling, Bloodshot Cyclops can sub)

I'm not exactly sure if he's what you're looking for, but here's my deck for a reference.

Bad Luck Brion

Hi dakjobo. That's a good idea but I can't think of where to put a Fling. The deck just needs all of these other enablers to work.

any though of putting Fling into the deck as a second main phase surprise or combat shenanigans if they target one of your beefed up monsters?

I have a tribal elemental deck, you have the banneret and smokebraider, also the soulstoke yet you have cheap mana cost creatures that you still will play turn 3 even if you have banneret or not, as long you play a Flamekin Harbinger on turn 1 and the smokebraider on turn 2.On turn 2 you can play the Nova Chaser or the soulstoke, depending if you have a high mana cost creature or the nova chaser

I suggest you to add Tyrant of Discord x2 and Liege of the Tangle to play it with the soulstoke so you can take profit of that ability.

You also must add Fling , that will force your opponent block nova chaser or liege of the tangle because if they don't you can easily hit 20 damage in turn. And what that happens you will kill creatures, deal damage and search for the elemental you need in that moment, even if it's another nova chaserFurthermore if they try to kill your nova chaser you can respond with fling and search another nova chaser when flamekin comes again to the game.But I think it's better to remove banneret, i had in my deck too but it didn't do that much in the end if you have the smokebraiders.

You can also add Dread Vigor or whatever you like to play it even in your opponent's turn with the soulstoke for 2 mana so your opponent will be in big trouble if he or she attacks and you cast so.

You should also add something to destroy artifacts and enchantments, there are some good for red for 1 mana or 2

freakingShane: Haha, thanks a lot man! I looked at your primer quite a bit when I was trying to figure out the right balance of ETB and other damage I wanted for this deck.

Opifex & squirlfood: I hadn't seen that rule before, and it complete changes what I thought about how equipment works. Now that you mention it, it would have to still apply Deathtouch and Lifelink, otherwise spells like Fling and Brion Stoutarm wouldn't work correctly either.

I looked up the rules about Deathtouch specifically, and found this one also:

702.2d The deathtouch rules function no matter what zone an object with deathtouch deals damage from.

I am gonna look more to make sure, but I really hope it all actually works. Basilisk Collar was one of my most wanted additions in a long time, and I was disappointed when I thought it didn't work.

Great catch guys!

Hey, I love you.

I would take out Approach of the Second Sun you don't really draw alot and in a format where you can only run one of it its a bit meh. but I see why you put it in. I'm a big fan of Fling in here like it is in my Uril deck. "Oh I can't hit you with my giant commander? meh throw it at you". If you are going enchantments Daybreak Coronet is always fun. Plus you could use Underworld Coinsmith Felidar Umbra is fun. Deflecting Palm is also a must. Crypt Ghast is good in like any black deck

MoGoose831 on 3rd Degree - ULTRA BUDGET!!!

Thanks for looking Sogatog! While I agree that Bontu's Monument and Blazing Volley are pretty terrible Fling on the other hand has been awesome in the deck. I'll try out the deserts, Magma Spray and Hungry Flames for sure!

The price tag on Abrade is a bit much for the deck but I like its versatility it will be going into the not so ultra budget version.
