NerdPoncho on U/G elves - Ezuri, Claw of Progress

2 days ago

Came here from Reddit, gonna make some cut suggestions so you can fix your lands.

With so few lands that Zendikar's Roil isn't really doing anything for you. So I'd see that as a safe card to remove.Siege Behemoth, while a good card, is ultimately unnecessary in Elfball decks. I might also consider taking out Titania's Chosen as it doesn't really give much to the deck in terms of utility. By itself it's a 1/1 no evasion dude with no ways to really give it evasion. Sylvan Safekeeper isn't doing you any favors, either. Its utility is land-sac, something you don't want to do with only 24 lands. Maybe cut a few of your basic land search cards. You have almost as many ways to get basic lands as you do basic lands. Remember Freyalise makes mana dorks, so you'd be safe cutting a couple. Since you're ramping early I'd say a safe cut could be found in Lifespring Druid

Hedron Archive with so many other mana sources is effectively draw two cards for six mana, horribly inefficient.

Now to suggest some cards to put in the deck after you fix your land situation. All of the creatures suggested here are elves. And apart from Kindred Discovery, they're all fairly cheap.

Momir Vig, Simic Visionary - Turn every single elf creature spell in your deck into a Worldly Tutor effect.

Harmonize - Draw 3 for 4 mana. It's great.

Kindred Discovery - Name elf and draw for days.

Master Biomancer - Starts out by giving your incoming creatures 2 +1/+1 counters, but with Ezuri that number grows exponentially.

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter - Gives your smaller cards a little more value, or your big stuff a lot more value.

Sages of the Anima - In a creature focused deck this card is a bomb.

DragonFaceEater on Prowess is cool I guess...

For a deck based around noncreature spells, this sure has a lot of creatures in it. Now, I haven't played a prowess deck before, but I feel like you don't need to run every single prowess creature in here, especially cards like Bloodfire Expert, Dragon Bell Monk, Ingenious Skaab, Jeskai Sage, Jeskai Student, Mage-Ring Bully, Sanguinary Mage, Spellweaver Eternal, Umara Entangler, none of which have any significant abilities. To replace these, I'd run some mana ramp, which you have a criminally low amount of (one, in Chandra, Torch of Defiance). You could run Sol Ring, an EDH staple that every deck needs, also Azorius Signet, Izzet Signet, and Boros Signet, and if you want to get rid of your ramp later in the game, Mind Stone, Commander's Sphere, Hedron Archive, and Dreamstone Hedron will suit your needs. Some other ramp cards that can work really well in your deck are Chromatic Lantern, Coalition Relic, Coldsteel Heart, Corrupted Grafstone, Darksteel Ingot, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Fellwar Stone, Gilded Lotus, Khalni Gem, Primal Amulet  Flip, and Pyromancer's Goggles. Obviously, you souldn't run all of these, but you should definitely consider them. The average commander deck should have around 10 ramp cards, though yours may want a few less, considering it's an aggro-ish deck. Also, Ponder's really good.

No Hedron Archive? You've got Mind Stone and Dreamstone Hedron.

Hey!

I think you could cut glacial chasm and ice floe

Maybe add Maze of Ith or Thaumatic Compass  Flip

Revoke Existence/Fate Forgotten could be Forsake the Worldly or Return to Dust. I think the instant speed is worth the extra mana

cut distress, single card discard in commander is hard to use effectivly. If you want this type of effect add Sadistic Hypnotist.

maybe cut Feast of Blood for another instant speed kill spell like Path to Exile or Murderous Cut

maybe cut Mardu Banner for Mind Stone or Hedron Archive.

swap Mortify/Unmake for Anguished Unmaking or Utter End

Cut Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet for being to expensive and not inpacting the board fast enough.

Add some sweet sweet card draw like, Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, Painful Truths, Phyrexian Arena.

Add some recurision like Phyrexian Reclamation, Sun Titan (maybe), Bishop of Rebirth (Definitly!)

Add some pump effects like Shared Animosity, Cathars' Crusade,

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is good, maybe find a spot for him over Mathas, Fiend Seeker maybe?

Well that's a lot of suggestions, if you'd like to debate any of them I'd be more than happy to!

Good luck spreading vampirism!

Bxbx on Kumano: The Art of War

Hi,

I like your deck because it's about smashing the opponents face in pure and simple!

I think you already made a really good job with your card choices. Many of those I would have suggested as well.

Here are the few that still come into my mind:

  • Illusionist's Bracers would economize mana if you activate the ability of Kumano, Master Yamabushi at least three times (assumed you play and equip the bracers the same turn you want to start shooting)

  • with Basilisk Collar your commander becomes a machine gun, because dealing one deathtouch damage to a creature suffices to kill it. It might also be good to gain some life with the collar here and then, though lifelink does only work with combat damage.

  • Repercussion has huuuge combo potential in this deck. It might be even dangerous for yourself. But normally you should be able to play it in a way that it hurts your opponents more than yourself. Imagine playing Blasphemous Act or Chandra's Ignition while this is on board and your opponent having 2 or 3 creatures. It will often be a game ender.

  • Commander's Sphere as another Mind Stone, Hedron Archive

  • maybe play Mind's Eye or Seer's Sundial

  • Radiate is a funny card

  • and why don't you play Skullclamp? It doesn't work with the ability of Kumano, Master Yamabushi because the creatures won't die, but you have enough sweepers and burn effects in this deck to cash in a lot of draws when you equip your creatures with skullclamp before.

  • you could use some land destruction as well: Volcanic Offering, Strip Mine, Tectonic Edge

  • Stranglehold establishes parity between you and all the black, green and blue decks that have the ability to play a lot of tutors. It is a great card and a bit underrated I must say.

  • Braid of Fire generates mana that you can use for Kumano, Master Yamabushis ability in your upkeep

That's all for now. I hope my comments are helpful.

Suns_Champion on EDH Brion Stoutarm R/W, Fury and Wrath

Hi! Saw your post on the forums, glad to see more Brion players out there.

In response to the forum post: in my personal experience Stalking Vengeance never did much for me. but with the choice between Insurrection or Aurelia, the Warleader, I'd cut the Warleader.

Now after having a look at your deck, I've got a few suggestions!

First off, you have a lot of high costed(6-8 mana) spells, but almost no ramp to speak of.

Boros Signet, Coldsteel Heart, Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, Fire Diamond, Hedron Archive, Marble Diamond, and Mind Stone are all good options. Focus on the 2 mana ramps because that a) allows for a turn 3 Brion and b) doesn't slow you down as much in the late game.

Ramp is important, and so is card draw. Unfortunately, Boros sucks at both. Still, artifacts like Well of Lost Dreams and Skullclamp are great, so through in some more like Infiltration Lens and Mask of Memory. Solemn Simulacrum is great too, though price is an issue(Kor Cartographer is the budget version). The color red also provides you with wheel effects, you have a couple but Reforge the Soul would help you I think.

Now the boring stuff is out of the way. How about some big creatures?! Hamletback Goliath, Thunderblust, and Serra Avatar are some good sackable fatties, and give great value for your dollar! Sun Titan is some good recursion.

Now for some win conditions to bounce off ya: Phyrexian Processor! Here's what you need: 9 mana, at least 1 more life than your opponent, and Brion on the field. Play the processor, pay most of your life, make a X/X creature, sack it to Brion, kill your opponent and gain all the life back! Works great with damage/lifegain doublers.

Phyrexian Devourer! Here's how he works. Exile cards off your library until he hits seven and his ability triggers, then sack him with Brion in response to the trigger, then keep exileing cards in respone to that to get it's power up to more than your opponents, then all that resolves and kills someone. This can all happen turn 7 which is nice.

Other random cards I've had fun with:Rite of the Raging Storm, Fatal Frenzy, and Neheb, the Eternal!

Cut suggestions. Whenever I'm cutting stuff I look at the top of my curve first and move down. How much are these 6, 7, 8 mana spells doing for you? I'd take a long look at the two Akromas and some of the other angels, Stalking Vengeance, and Ryusei, the Falling Star. Further down the curve I see Taj-Nar Swordsmith(not using him to full potential), Magus of the Disk(just use the disk) and Vesuva(replace with Clifftop Retreat).

Hopefully some of this helps! Check out my Brion deck for a reference!


Bad Luck Brion
