K1ngMars on Putin's long term plan to conquer the world

11 months ago

Secondo me devi impostare il mazzo più verso il fare attaccare gli avversari tra loro e fargli perdere tempo per poi tirare fuori una finisher. Inoltre non hai nessun vantaggio dallo scartare, perché non hai cose come Liliana's Caress, wheels o carte con Madness, di conseguenza taglierei anche da quella parte. Quindi toglierei alcune delle carte tax che hai messo. Proporrei cose del genere:

  • Harsh Mentor -> Again, una tax abbastanza gratuita che però ti rende il tizio fastidioso #1. Non è ciò che vuoi, ti servono cose più subdole. Tipo Hunted Dragon.
  • Sire Of Insanity -> Spezza le tattiche a tutti, ma anche a te. Non lo ritengo utile, soprattutto perché non carte con madness, né carte sufficenti con flashback, emerge, ecc. Meglio un Combustible Gearhulk che ti fa pescare. In rosso. 6/6 first strike.
  • Dark Ritual -> Non è forte come Mana Geyser. Se non sei un mazzo combo, non te ne fai nulla di una carta così.
  • Hero's Downfall -> Ruinous Path e risparmi.
  • Rakdos Charm -> Nessuno dei sui effetti è così utile, se non forse esiliare il cimitero, but then again... Bojuka Bog?
  • Dreadbore -> Murder e risparmi.
  • Vandalblast -> Costa davvero tanto. Fai tu, ma non vedo tutta questa necessità di spaccare tutto. hai già molto removal per gli artefatti, potresti investire quei denari altrove.
  • War's Toll -> Heartless Hidetsugu è meglio non metterti un bersagio sulla testa grosso come war's toll. L'hidetsugu è più democratico.
  • Worn Powerstone -> Citadel of Pain perché la Powerstone fa schifo. Meglio una carta che gioca contro chi vuole fare il cheesy. Oppure Talisman of Indulgence.
  • Hissing Miasma -> Skyline Despot meglio avere più carte che ti rendono monarca che un side effect come questo enchantment. Se vogliono attaccarti, lo faranno comunque. L'unica ragione per cui invece Marchesa's Decree va bene è perché ti rende monarca.

Io tenterei di mettere tante carte che ti fanno rubare cose agli avversari, perché è un modo swag di rompere le balle. Ci sono così tante carte con questo effetto, che rischi di poter anche non mettere Insurrection, più che altro perché è difficile da trovare e costosa. Dico cose come:

Oltre a ciò, ti consiglio carte swag che sicuramente sono divertenti come:

Scusa se non ti ho commentato tutte le carte, ma sono un pelo di corsa. Ne possiamo piuttosto parlare quando ci vediamo.

JethroWilkins on Imma take dat and imma take dis

For what it is worth, I tallied up every nonland card and recorded it as either a "take" effect (from play or from the graveyard) or a "sac" effect (which, obviously, sacrifices the creature).

This deck has 17 ways to take opponent's creatures, only one of which is repeatable.

This deck also has 12 ways to sacrifice creatures, many of which are repeatable.

I don't know if these are acceptable numbers for you or not, but I thought I would let you know what you are working with.

Also, since I'm a completionist, I added up the nonland cards that neither took or sacced anything. The result: 35. There are 35 cards that don't do either. I thought that was interesting data.

If you would like ideas for more take effects, consider Flash Conscription, Grab the Reins, Might Makes Right, and Mass Mutiny, which all work well in the deck and are all decent upgrades over the traditional Threaten text.

If you are interested in more sac effects, how about Bone Splinters, Carrion Feeder, Diabolic Intent, Goblin Bombardment, Hidden Stockpile, and although it is slow, Smothering Abomination.

If you're planning to fling your commander a lot, Command Beacon is a good way to bring him back cheaply. Skullclamp would draw you lots of cards by equipping before sacrificing. Razaketh, the Foulblooded helps you find whatever you need if you're planning to sacrifice creatures anyway.

Pitiless Plunderer could ramp and generate more artifacts for Atogs to sacrifice. Faces of the Past can untap Brion and other creatures if you have Arcane Adaptation or Conspiracy. You could also try Angelic Renewal for unlimited sacrifices with Sun Titan.

It might also make sense to steal opponents' creatures and sacrifice them rather than your own stuff, using cards like Bringer of the Red Dawn, Captivating Crew, Dominus of Fealty, and Might Makes Right. You can check out my Atogatog deck that focuses on stealing and sacrificing.

WestNileWerewolf on Budget Licia

I definitely have a hard time getting her out AND protecting her, and Manabarbs will definitely draw some hate but I think it's worth it. As far as lifegain goes W/B is a lot stronger I think, so we gotta use that red for something.

I haven't played my deck in a free for all setting yet, just 1v1's. With the list I'm currently rocking I'm getting her out fairly quickly most of the time, but the real battle is definitely protecting her and finding a way to give her flying/trample/haste.

I'm rocking Gift of Immortality Favor of the Mighty Swiftfoot Boots and a Open the Armory to search them out, maybe one more protection piece would be good.

I also totally want to throw Might Makes Right in but don't know if I have the room.

Would suggest Might Makes Right Great stealing and you want to have the biggest creature on the board with Brion Stoutarm anyways.

Pawstitute on Bad Luck Brion

2 years ago

I'm looking into building a Brion Stoutarm deck, and there is one suggestion I would make in accordance with this theme, and that's Might Makes Right, it doesn't take anything, but ideally it gets something each turn.Also Solemn Simulacrum, yadda yadda.

Panas on Last minute Brion Stoutarm help!

2 years ago

I'll start with the questions since that's easier.

1) +x/+0 effects are not necessary. Damage multipliers could be nice since you will be playing a fair-er deck.

2) Dreadnought is worth the money for the right deck. That deck is piloted by Varolz, the Scar-Striped. I wouldn't consider it for Brion.

3) Kiki-jiki is worth it. A wonderful combo piece that can go wild in almost every deck that runs red. In your colours, he could be a secondary win condition with Restoration Angel and Zealous Conscripts (you could add more combo pieces but that would draw the deck away from what you want to do by taking too many slots).

Alright! Now on with suggestions and notable omissions:

Bloodshot Cyclops is a second Brion and I think it's necessary in every Brion deck as a backup.

Might Makes Right is an interesting repeatable threaten effect. The drawback can be negated by most giants since they tend to be larger than average.

Vicious Shadows can be another mighty red enchantment.

As a matter of fact I would include less creatures that die at end of turn. Either that or include more recursion like Karmic Guide and Sun Titan. Try to find space for Kor Cartographer and Knight of the White Orchid as some of the only land-ramp in white.

Another major issue with the deck is your Sunforger. Where are the instants it will tutor for!? You need to improve that package with a lot of other cards. My suggestions for a decent boros package are Into the Core, Boros Charm, Swords to Plowshares, Return to Dust, Wild Ricochet and Master Warcraft.

Then card draw... I'd like to see (a lot) more, you will probably like to see more as well. But in boros that may be rough, sadly...

For boardwipes you have the classics (e.g. Day of Judgment) but you may find some interest in cards like False Prophet and Bearer of the Heavens. They can be very political and can prove a very literal threat with your commander. Otherwise opt for cards that offer versatility like Tragic Arrogance and Fell the Mighty.

Lastly, i would recommend taking a look at Brion's page on EDHRec. It's by no means the golden standard to pick cards from there, but it's a decent source of inspiration.

I hope this was at least a little bit insightful for you. It's always nice to see unconventional commanders and I would have loved to see a Brion deck at my table!
