Mindblade Render Discussion

I feel like Summoner's Pact is an easy inclusion here. It turns Spellseeker into an extra copy of Hulk and can also search for Derevi in order to go infinite with our Warriors. Would probably cut Brainstorm for it, unless Brainstorm's been doing serious work in the list; you already run Edric, Spymaster of Trest, Mindblade Render, Mystic Remora and Dark Confidant so I can't imagine we're hurting for card draw too badly.

I don't fully get the inclusion of Mindblade Render? I'm assuming it's a situational card that you can "hand sculpt" away, but is it really that strong?

@seshiro_of_the_orochi: Whoops, didn't mean to block you (don't know if it sends you a notice or not...) Anyway, thanks again for your feedback. I think Jund would be great for Mindblade Render because you'd have access to Grand Warlord Radha and you could get crazy with Cryptolith Rite and Druids' Repository (credit Prid3 on MTGSalvation for that idea).

@seshiro_of_the_orochi Thanks! I did consider Zurgo Bellstriker and I think you're right that I should get them in there so that a turn 2 Mindblade Render could start drawing me cards. I considered Brighthearth Banneret too and originally decided cost reduction wasn't as important in a deck that effectively tops out at 5 CMC, but the cost reduction would help me play multiple small creatures in a turn and use up the extra cards that I'll draw. I think that's a good idea and I'll probably try to get them in there. Flamerush Rider doesn't do much, you're right, it's gone! Ignition Team is in there because Alesha, Who Smiles at Death can bring it back, and it would be quite large in a multiplayer setting (and scary with Double Strike) but I think you're right that it should be cut. Cutting Zurgo Helmsmasher I could see, basically all he does is whack really hard but he'd die to removal real quick; he does hit really hard though. Garna, the Bloodflame is the one I'm most reluctant to cut, she can save all my dudes when someone board wipes, and she's great as a follow up to Last One Standing. Thanks again for your suggestions, I think they'll make the deck quicker and better!

Mindblade Render made me smile when I saw it, I am going to have to steal that idea. Mind if I ask why you don't run Manglehorn, it has always felt like a show-in piece of stax in green, along with Root Maze and the like, also, why do you have 2 Demonic Tutors and 2 Damnations? I apologize If I just don't understand something.

Ill try to keep budget low, I dont know how good you want this deck to be, but we can definitely make it pretty nasty on a budget aside from mana base. I personally think you should focus on B/W/R This gives you good draw, good stax peices, and extra combat turns. Some of these cards have alternate prints that are a bit cheaper. But i think this is a good start
Alesha, Who Smiles at Death Hidden commander
Meekstone Since you get untap effects, should really help slow others down. Add in some other stax peices as you get budget if you want to keep tuning it, but alot of good stax cards are a little higher costed

Your list looks really sweet, and you've hit most of the really powerful warriors, but I think you might want to work on your curve a bit. You have a ton of 3-drops, and very few 2-drops, and Najeela is very good if you curve another warrior into her. Some options to consider in the 2-drop slot are Mindblade Render, Blood-Chin Rager, and Den Protector for some warriors, and Fellwar Stone or signets for some early ramp. You've got a couple of 1-drops that I'm not sold on: Aether Vial and Amulet of Vigor. Without many 1 or 2-drops, vial seems much worse, and I don't really see what you want to be untapping with the amulet. What I think would be very good in this deck are 1-cmc dorks, since they allow you to skip past your weak 2-drops and right on to your commander and other 3-drops. Birds of Paradise and Carpet of Flowers are all very good options for that.
