Muglacious_NiceFaceToad I was already considering Mirage Mirror, and after playing EDH a few times, I can think of many many times he would've been amazing. He was too slow for my Modern decks, but looks like an all-star for EDH- I am putting him in instead of Masterwork of Ingenuity. I really like Masterwork of Ingenuity, but Mirage Mirror seems much more flexible (copying Mirari's Wake sounds nice).. Infiltration Lens is interesting, but I'm not quite sold on it yet- it would have to compete for a slot with Skullclamp, & Skullclamp just seems better, even in a non-token deck- especially if paired with something broken, like Gift of Immortality & Greater Good.

I just added Sun Titan & took out Bonds of Mortality as well; I like Bonds of Mortality, especially since it replaces itself with a card in hand, but I never actually used the ability during the the 3 games I played, though I had it on the battlefield during 2 games, & needed recursion after some discard effects.

Card-draw is vital in EDH and nearly impossible in Boros colors. Reforge the Soul is one of the best red card-draw spells that isn't Wheel of Fortune. I like Outpost Siege a lot. Cathartic Reunion, Tormenting Voice, Faithless Looting, and Wild Guess are decent. Better with graveyard recursion or extra draw Alhammarret's Archive) but that's Red for ya.

Pursuit of Knowledge isn't too good. Neither is Armistice. I can't think of or find any others but trust me, White is barren for card draw.

Mind's Eye is one of the best colorless options but it's expensive. Staff of Nin isn't too bad. I love Farsight Mask. Perhaps Infiltration Lens and Rogue's Gloves? Most of the rest help you opponents, like Howling Mine, Temple Bell, Font of Mythos, etc.

Howdy,I have been working on one myself too. These have been some good cards for me. I am assuming you are wanting to attack fast and powerfully. I think some instants and more card draw would be important to increasing your effectiveness quickly and protecting your creatures from removal once they know how much damage you can do with a double strike kitty. If you are not used to Protection from color cards... they are AWESOME. Useful for unblockability, targeting prevention, and damage prevention.

Powerup;-Forgotten Ancient, Overwhelming Stampede, Inquisitor's Flail, O-Naginata, Phytoburst, Larger Than Life, Mirror Entity(obviously only really good if you have a bunch of creatures)

Powerup Instants; Vines of Vastwood, Titanic Growth, Might of Old Krosa, Invigorate, Become Immense, Berserk

Card Draw; Rogue's Gloves, Mask of Memory, Infiltration Lens, (absolutely these 3) Hunter's Prowess, Momentous Fall, Rishkar's Expertise, Soul's Majesty.

Creature Protection/Unblockability; Mother of Runes, Gods Willing, Emerge Unscathed, Brave the Elements, Apostle's Blessing, Blossoming Defense, Heroic Intervention

Utility Card; Mirage Mirror, If you haven't used this card be prepared for its versatility. It is so good!

Also you may want to increase your amount of removal.

Cheers!

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!

Citadel Siege wasn't doing enough so i swapped it for Infiltration Lens

I second swapping Cathedral of War for Inkmoth Nexus. I prefer to think of Nexus as a creature, one that is often more useful than Blight Mamba or Necropede. It just happens to have the added flexibility of being a land that doesn't enter tapped. If you can afford to play a land tapped, you're not playing the fastest version of infect, and if you're not playing the fastest version, there isn't really a reason to play infect at all. (Nexus is $20 while Cathedral is $1 for a reason.) By this same logic, I wouldn't run any equipment. The 2 mana you spend casting and equipping Infiltration Lens could be spent casting 2 buffs to win the game immediately. And if you spent 4 mana to give Livewire Lash to a Glistener Elf only to have it Path to Exiled, you'd really wish the Lash was just an Apostle's Blessing or Vines of Vastwood instead. Finally, I think Groundswell is still underrated for infect. Whether it's a good replacement for Phytoburst may depend on how ready you are to gamble for high risk and high reward.
