Was going to make suggestions, but the description read my mind. +1 for energy, loved that mechanic. Not sure there's room to squeeze anything else, I like Lightning Runner, but no doubt for 5 mana you could be doing more.

Hi Ron,
It's awesome that you play with your sons. My dad taught me magic back in 2000 and we used to play plenty of EDH until he went through chemo and lost memory of how to play.. anyway I'm really thankful that he taught me and I'm sure your sons feel the same.

I'd be happy to check out your Brudiclad deck. Do you have a decklist you can send me? So far I can recommend the following cards if you don't use them already. They're for getting Brudi out quicker, which is vital for high-level games: Generator Servant, Pentad Prism, Worn Powerstone, and Coalition Relic.

These cards also come to mind for strong Brudiclad synergy: Twinflame, Heat Shimmer, Quasiduplicate, Rite of Replication, Lightning Runner, Combat Celebrant, Tilonalli's Summoner, Elemental Mastery.

Hope this helps

You need to add Endless Atlas as it is an amazing source of draw that should not be overlooked in red.

As for cuts, some you will be more hesitant than others to cut...

Anger - Bad haste outlet, needs to be in yard. Eh

Hanweir Garrison - Only synergy with hanweir, even then weak synergy. Not worth including

It That Betrays - Too costly, not impactful enough

Lightning Runner - Weak AF

Urabrask the Hidden - Better haste outlets in lands which are harder to remove, this is not needed

Star of Extinction - Too expensive

Dual Casting - Auras, especially with no way to abuse are just bad (2 for 1)

Chaos Wand - Fun but not efficient

Helm of the Host - VERY fun but too mana intensive. If you had more ramp, I MIGHT recomend it, but its very very winmore.

Lightning Runner could be good here? If you copy it you could also get infinite combo steps.

Also Broodbirth Viper is extremely strong.

+1 :)

& seems to be the most important colors for , although provides Demon of Dark Schemes & Gonti's Machinations while gives you Lightning Runner . If you want over Animar's , consider Atraxa, Praetors' Voice (proliferate yourself for an extra ) and Yarok, the Desecrated (a lot of cards gives as an ETB). They both got -theme pages on EDHREC too.

So i built my own!

Not an exact replica as that's not my style.

I found Greenbelt Rampager and Empyreal Voyager to be pretty fun. I'm surprised you're not running Aethertide Whale .

As I was combing through my collection to build my deck I noticed there was a good bit of red cards that supported energy: Voltaic Brawler and Lightning Runner for example. Did you give red any thought when building yours?
