passascats on Elemental tribal

My personal experience with Omnath is land ramp is better than mana dorks. This is mostly because late game an Elvish Mystic is pretty much worthless, while a Rampant Growth can be huge with Omnath on the field.
Tempt with Vengeance and Boundless Realms will win you games. I don't know of any infinite combos off the top of my head.
Elementals I like: Malignus, Tyrant of Discord, Incandescent Soulstoke, and Rubblehulk. Although not an elemental, I also like Rakka Mar.
The only other suggestion I would have is Basilisk Collar. It turns your sac outlets into board wipes and extra life for you.
Good Luck!

Azdranax on Xenagos Dragons/Hydras

I realize it's outside of your tribal theme, but Malignus fits very well with Xenagos. Add a Rancor and put them all together and you probably have a one-shot attack. Considering the minimal non-permanent spells as well, Genesis Wave seems like a solid value here.

As per the usual Eternal, I am a fan of your deck! Thank you for the thought-driven explanations in your description. If you were going to build a $50-$60 framework with the intention of upgrading it to this list, what would be the $$ must-have cards? I feel like it would be Pyromancer's Goggles, Quietus Spike, Repercussion, Stranglehold, Furnace of Rath, Price of Glory. What are your thoughts?

I am curious about your use of Eldrazi Monument in this list. Is it strictly for the combo win? I feel like all of the creatures you have are creatures that you need. When will you drop the monument? I have always felt like it is a more beneficial card in a graveyard strategy. But then again, I struggle with letting go of resources on the board if I can't get them back. Two more questions for now. I see that you have Malignus in your maybe-board. Have you tested him and he didn't perform well, or are you considering trying him out? Have you considered/played Glacial Chasm, and what are your thoughts on it?

Furlycry on Burning Battalion

AiVsHumanity, MrMonkeyMan is actually my old account, I stopped using the site for awhile so I lost the login information, but I recently made a new one (This one obviously). I have the updated version of this deck on my new profile. But to answer your question, this deck was very fun to play, particularly in multiplayer games. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder works very well with Malignus and Heartless Hidetsugu. I have since made the deck more one on one based, but those three cards are still side boarded for multiplayer games. Its one of my more reliable decks for sure. You should check out my updated version. It is labeled Burn Battalion.

jamindragons on Pattern Recognition #43 - Gideon ...

my bad, I misunderstood the rulings. If two+ creatures attack him, unless you have something like Brave the Sands, he can only block one creature, as he is a creature, but the others will still be attacking him like he is a planeswalker, so he can be killed as a creature and a planeswalker if there is a card that makes damage unpreventable like Malignus.

It's a shame I don't use Warstorm Surge in my UR deck, cause I do use Clone Legion and that sounds like a great idea.

Also, the Malignus one is great too, I feel like that could wreck a game pretty easily.

That's an awesome combo!

Super hilarious!

One of my favorite funny combos is Clone Legion with Warstorm Surge on the field. Kill your opponents with their own creatures.

Another one also uses Warstorm Surge, but this time it involves Gratuitous Violence and Malignus

Hello, I really like this deck you have put together! I've been working on my own Brion deck and this has provided a number of helpful ideas. Just a few things, though:

Cards like Serra Avatar and Malignus cannot be tutored for using Recruiter of the Guard. The stars for their power and toughness indicate that their stats are updating no matter what zone they're in.

Unfortunately, I can't read the majority of your primer! When I try and open one of the sub-boxes the large box containing them closes (perhaps only one box can be open at a time?). I'd love to read over what you've discovered about the deck, so please let me know once you have that fixed. Thank you!
