Ghired's Belligerence deals X damage divided as you choose among any number of target creatures. Whenever a creature dealt damage this way is put into the graveyard from the battlefield this turn, populate. (Create a token that's a copy of a creature token you control.)

Ghired's Belligerence Discussion
2 days ago
Hi, doddlm. I've looked at your Brudiclad decklist and it look solid overall, but I have a few suggestions on what can make it better. The only major thing that comes to mind is that I think you have too few big payoff cards (6) for Brudiclad to multiply and too many little token set-up cards (23). My opinion is that (little tokens)- to – (big tokens) – to – (copy effects) has to be roughly equivalent with each category having at last 10+ cards. As far as card choices go there are some that don't make enough in EDH and you might consider replacing them with something else.
What to consider to remove Show
Ghired's Belligerence – I tried it, didn't work out for me, but you have a lot more of 1/1 guys that can be pinged for populate so it can work for you if you keep close to current ratios.
Nevermaker – Feels like the payoff is too small. When you are in a pinch you can't even sacrifice it to remove something as you don't have sac outlet. Spell Swindle – not a fan of it, not gonna lie. I just don't like sitting with 5 open mana.
What to consider to add: Show
Vandalblast – you can remove one of the 2 boardwipes I mentioned for this.
More salt for your opponents: Timestream Navigator – If copies into a token goes infinite turn lock with Brudiclad
Hope this answer isn't too long and you find it helpful! I'll also enable chat in case you have more questions. Cheers, mate!

This is great for a first EDH. You might like these: Launch the Fleet (seems fun with Zada and Aurelia), Seize the Day , Ephemeral Shields , Twinflame , Heat Shimmer , Ghired's Belligerence , Volcanic Wind , Impact Resonance , Magnetic Theft (cheap way to re-equip Sunforger), Gideon's Sacrifice (combos with Arcbond + a spell that gives indestructible for infinite damage), Martyrdom , Kor Chant

Thanks for the feedback, king-saproling! With this deck I'm just trying to rush to where I go infinite, rather than protect it too much other than counter spells and a couple other protective spells. Also, minimizing the number of creatures was another goal. Here's my thoughts on the suggestions:
Sigil Tracer doesn't do much when Mizzix isn't on the field which can happen a decent amount of the time
Depths of Desire is a free spell with 2 experience counters, but it doesn't replace itself so I think Teferi's Time Twist is better since Mizzix would return to the battlefield after a board wipe without having to cast them out again, plus TTT can be imprinted on Isochron Scepter in a pinch
Rush of Knowledge was a card I had considered but now thinking about it again, with Mizzix out, it's B: Draw 4 cards which is very efficient. I'll have to consider this more. Might swap this in for one of the creatures in the deck
Echo Storm is nice for ramping, but I like my ramp to be 2 CMC or less, so even if the spell is copied a couple times, you're late in the game where you no longer need ramp anyway
Supplant Form is an interesting way to protect Mizzix, but it costs a lot and if I already have 4+ experience counters I'm probably going infinite soon anyway, so having TTT would be better, especially since I can use it on Mizzix early.
Clone Legion I'm not trying to win through combat, so this would be more of a protective/value play. It's unlikely most other decks are going to have creatures that would benefit my game plan, so this can be a dead card in hand most games
Ghired's Belligerence I'm not making tokens other than Treasure , and to make this card worth it I already have to have a ton of experience or gone infinite on Mana at which point I should be winning already

Nice! I dig that you went for a different take on Mizzix rather than the usual storm lines.
