Magus of the Disk Discussion

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.
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!

Hey DieKnowMight! It looks like you have a lot of suggestions going on here. I'm no expert on Mardu commanders, but I have a few suggestions!
Elspeth, Sun's Champion has a wipe on her -2 that replicates the wipe people have been recommending to you.
Dolmen Gate is pretty solid, acting as damage negation similar to Iroas.
Mother of Runes is another way to protect your commander and can be used offensively to get a free swing in as well!
Stronghold Assassin goes 1 for 1 on creatures with your opponents, worthwhile since you can the creature he sacrifices and him if he dies.
Oreskos Explorer helps search for lands if you are playing against ramp.
Legion Loyalist gives your tiny guys trample, but more importantly ignores tokens.
Flesh Carver drops a big token after he dies and can sacrifice things.

dbpunk Magus of the Vineyard, Magus of the Library, Magus of the Candelabra, Magus of the Disk, Magus of the Tabernacle, Magus of the Moat, Magus of the Bazaar, Magus of the Jar and Magus of the Future would like a word with you :)
That being said there was already Magus of the Moon, Magus of the Arena, Magus of the Scroll, Magus of the Coffers, Magus of the Abyss and Magus of the Mirror before they made Magus of the Will and Magus of the Wheel.
So the current magus breakdown is: White 3, Blue 3, Black 4, Red 4, Green 3. So You could be in luck with them evening out the total number of magus!

I remember running Magus of the Disk in my Alesha deck before I grew more attached to the permanents I placed on the battlefield. If you really want to be evil and make your opponent's lives painful I suggest including Darksteel Plate. Magus of the Disk doesn't sacrifice itself to its ability, so if you equip it with Darksteel Plate you have a repeatable Nevinyrral's Disk. I'll be frank when I say it makes an amazing emergency button when your opponent's are about to do something you don't like.

While Magus of the Disk has its value, I absolutely despise board wiping. I also don't like lock down strategies which is why I removed Dictate of Erebos and Butcher of Malakir from the deck. I only play with friends and those kinds of strategies aren't fun.

Beio53, I was actually answering to foxboy93. It was the only comment at the time, and I honestly didn't expect another. I've never posted a decklist before, and while I know the magic community is pretty nice, I didn't thought that people would go out of their way to provide such helpful comments. So thanks to you! I do really like your version of the deck as well.
I update the deck. Magus of the Disk is one of my favourite suggestion of yours. I didn't know that card. It's a much better fit than nev's disk here. I also add Stern Constable and Mindless Automaton and made a few other changes that improves the deck in the meta it'll be playing in. I think my friend will have a good time with it!

Hi Pudding_PopFirst of all I really like your Agro style of attack with this deck. And making this to teach someone with in mind, I think it's straightforward enough to not confuse anyone so good on you! foxboy93 is right in most of his suggestions though as far as dealing with artifacts and enchantments as well as discard/draw fuel. Mindless Automaton in particular is an unbelievable card in my own Alesha, Who Smiles at Death deck, it does more work than almost any other card. Also, Magus of the Disk is a creature form of the disk that can be recurred with Alesha and is cheap money wise. But I don't see a whole lot of creature removal from your actual creatures, which is a huge opportunity with Alesha. I'd really recommend some cheap creatures like Bone Shredder or Ghitu Slinger, but also since you have more attacking synergy here, there are some cool force blocking cards that would definitely help you keep the board clear. Invasion Plans has almost no downside for an Agro deck like yours since you'll likely be tapped out anyway, and you can ram Tajic, Blade of the Legion into any difficult creatures. Brutal Hordechief does the same thing and drains your opponents when you attack, but you have to pay for the force block. Stern Constable will also help you discard important creatures and tap down blockers or annoying creatures, and at 1 mana, it's a game changing turn 1 play. If you'd like I'm updating my Alesha deck now if you wanna take a look at it, it's more controlling and "deathy" haha but your Agro is something I've considered making mine for a while now. Alesha's smiling ear to ear
