You are definetely missing some card draw. Since your deck is based around bouncing your own creatures, the Azorius Kitty all star Wall of Omens seems like a must have. Also, i would totally cut Lavinia of the Tenth for a Crystal Shard. Flickerwisp probably has a home in this deck.

In terms of strategy, i would not "bounce to gain time to cast a finisher" but "bounce to grind an advantage", be it a card advantage with Wall of Omens or tempo advantage with Reflector Mage.

I have a tendency to play very aggresive decks, so instead of running counterspells and catch all removal i would run Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and Meddling Mages to have disruption on bodies that can attack and Deputy of Acquittalss for the bounce effect.

Btw, i'm sure there is some lock with Stonehorn Dignitary waiting to be abused here.

Well that is the first time I have ever been to the WU page on edhrec lol. A great way to deal with hate I found is just speed everything up, I've done it a few times and lose some great cards in the process but taking a decks average CMC from ~4-5 down to ~2-3 is just something that can put you miles ahead of your opponents.

Since you seem set on changing commanders I really like Geist of Saint Traft takes boardwipe or anti hexproof cards to kill and comes out turn 3 so you always have a creature then. He is small and other than control I don't know what your plan is. He is also very different from brago. They both like to attack but brago flickers your stuff this guy just hits harder.

Lavinia of the Tenth seems kinda meh. You can flicker her which if you can do that consistently every turn then she turns pretty good but I feel like you would be much better off going to GW and playing Gaddock Teeg so the big scary stuff is hampered rather than the small silly stuff.

Grand Arbiter Augustin IV doesn't seem like he would be directly hated. I play a karn deck with some mana reducers that are ignored because my opponents are busy with a turn 3 wurmcoil engine. So I wouldn't expect augustin to get hated off the board a lot. He slows your opponents and speeds you up. pretty nice and feels low key.

Isperia, Supreme Judge likes to swing into your opponents and is a decent body with evasion and makes people hesitate to swing at you. needs Swiftfoot Boots or Lightning Greaves or similar. much like brago does.

Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer can they really be mad at you when you give them cards? ;) (I jest they will be mad and this guy will die...)

Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun this one is new and interesting to me. I think this is one of your better options just load up on things like Stolen Identity, Phyrexian Rebirth, Rite of Replication and swing with scary unshockable tokens. Strionic Resonator should be great here. I really like this one for his cheap cost and you almost want him to die so that you can embalm him. that threat should keep him around a bit more.

Hey all.

Lemme first start off by saying I LOVE control decks. Not letting people resolve big threats pleases me yet I still love creatures with great utility (see Venser, Shaper Savant) and I'm trying to find a commander. I currently use Brago, King Eternal, but he actually gets hated out in my pod.... alot. I hardly find a time where I can cast him w/o him being killed then or the next turn. I also like infinite combos such as Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake . So my question is, what commander sounds best to take his place? Here are 2 options I was mulling over:

  • Geist of Saint Traft: A cool card flavor wise but also power wise. His hexproof makes him hard to target and in a control deck he could be a powerful finisher I can use from the command zone. Sadly doesn't do much for combos.

  • Lavinia of the Tenth: Being pro red is good against one of my pods Land destruction Deretti deck so that's a plus. Also the detaining is good against so many creatures, especially when I can blink her with Mistmeadow Witch. Sadly she has no combo she's really a part of besides a soft board lock.

NOTE:There is ALSO the option of going mono blue. I just don't like how many cards I'll lose from my Brago deck by doing that, but it's also an option and with mono blue comes an easier landbase ( I don't have any fetches or shocks in brago).

All in all, I just REALLY don't wanna stay with Brago. People hate him and therefore hate me (mainly my brothers). Any help guys?

I think its better to run Ephara inside a Brago or Roon deck rather than using her as the commander. Between her and Brago, while she gives you a card a turn, Brago does ramp, draw, exile, copy, everything at once. Just to tempt you a little more with him, think of blinking Duplicant, Mulldrifter, Peregrine Drake, Clever Impersonator, Lavinia of the Tenth, Venser, Shaper Savant, untaping mana rocks like Gilded Lotus and Mana Vault, reseting Tangle Wire and Mystic Remora, activate a Planeswalker twice a turn...

Scour from Existence is way too expensive imho. Better removal like Pongify, Rapid Hybridization, and Chaos Warp exists. I see no answers to jhoira hate; you probably need some sort of a counterspell package to protect Jhoira, because you are so dependent on your commander. Detainment and anything that shuts down activated abilities will freeze Jhoira out, so you probably need to pack in some anti-enchantment/artifact/creature hate as well to counter Arrest, Lavinia of the Tenth, Cursed Totem, etc. Note that UR are entirely devoid of things to deal with enchantments, so you are gonna wanna counter shit before it hits the table.

Spawning Breath seems cuttable. Swerve is interesting, but curious how useful this is compared to straight countermagic. If you want to go this route, look at Fork, Reverberate, and Wild Ricochet.

Suggestions to add: Treasure Cruise Vandalblast Smelt Shattering Spree

Suggestions to cut: Abstruse Interference Adverse Conditions Demolish Detonate Bash to Bits

Fun things to think about: Conjurer's Closet, Archaeomancer and Pull from the Deep for spell recursion

Wurmlover on Calling all Dicks and Douchebags!

before I start, let me state my meta at my LGS

2 Mizzix of the Izmagnus: burn/combo

1 Keranos, God of Storms: combo/burn for the most part

1 Gisela, Blade of Goldnight: voltron

1 Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord: crappy budget build for a new player

1 Omnath, Locus of Mana: ooga booga, me play forest. ooga booga, me play creature.

1 Riku of Two Reflections: Play Terastodon turn 4, blow up everyone's lands.

1 Prossh, Skyraider of Kher + Food Chain: This person is literally satan.

Keep those in mind while I explain my predicament. In order to balance my play group, I play brago stax. one problem, I only have a budget version with the most annoying piece being Lavinia of the Tenth . I don't run any actual stax artifacts. I've been trying to design a deck that would be able to keep 5 other combo heavy/aggro heavy decks at bay over the course of a game. its not working. I know you all are out there. What are the most dickish, douchey cards to use here against this meta to keep them under control? should I switch commanders?

the deck so far:

Stalin, King Eternal
