Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Bruna, the Light of Alablaster **AURAS GONE WILD**

Three Dreams allows you to prep your hand the turn before you play your commander, or it can just be an excellent topdeck that gets you exactly what you need to win the game.

Sage's Reverie also refills your hand, but it's also an Aura that gets better for each Aura stacked on Bruna.

Sovereigns of Lost Alara makes attacking alone with Bruna even better with exalted, plus it's a tutor for more Auras.

Winds of Rath is exactly the board clear this deck needs. Even if Bruna hasn't found a way to become indestructible yet, she'll survive the wrath.

Auramancer's Guise translates into lots of damage very quickly. Basically a blue Ancestral Mask.

Heliod's Pilgrim is yet another Aura tutor card.

I would swap these in for Whispersilk Cloak, Spellbook, Meekstone, Mask of Avacyn, Sunbond, and Ordeal of Heliod.

First off, love the name. +1

Now, for some criticism. 14 creatures plus an arbor is simply too many. You need to trim it to 12-13 total. Also, I am very against running arbor in bogles decks. It is too slow, we should be making a T1 play anyways, it sucks against Jund (which is supposed to be what it is here for), and literally dies to every removal spell ever, netting us a land loss as well, and a heck of a lot of tempo.

As for your manabase, cut the Groves and Bastion immediately for 4x Razorverge Thicket.

Your sideboard looks good, but not sure why you are running Seal over Natural State. I mean yeah it can dodge chalice on x=1 and combos well with Ethereal Armor, but the one mana difference really makes a lot (and the fact that they know it is coming, and can destroy it before playing a key artifact or enchantment). My meta doesn't have infect or bogles besides me, so I run no Blessed Alliances. With 4 paths though, I have a fighting chance at least.

Open the Armory and Ordeal of Heliod are both too slow, in my opinion. I would suggest mainboard paths if you cut anything. 20 lands is good. Your aura choice is different than mine (I run no Unflinching Courage or Keen Sense) but it looks pretty darn solid.

But Gryff's Boon, now that seems interesting! How has that been working out for you? I love that it has late game Rancor-ness and that it gives flying. I may have to try it!

hi I suggest Children of Korlis Dazzling Reflection Path of Bravery Serene Steward Soul's Attendant Serra Avatar Sunbond Ordeal of Heliod Reverse Damage Chalice of Life  Flip and Suture Priest. I tried to keep the suggestions budget but if you want better cards that are less budget like Alhammarret's Archive and Boon Reflection go check out my black and white life drain

Some good lands are Orzhov Guildgate, Isolated Chapel, Temple of Silence, Vault of the Archangel, and Godless Shrine. I'd recommend at least 38 lands in a deck like this, but that's just my preference.

Some weaker cards in your deck: Victim of Night, Geth's Verdict, Chaplain's Blessing, Cradle of Vitality, Ordeal of Heliod, Gift of Orzhova, Celestial Mantle, Abuna Acolyte, and Malakir Cullblade

Some more suggestions: Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Burnished Hart, Orzhov Signet, Karlov of the Ghost Council, Lightning Greaves, and Swiftfoot Boots.

+1 from me! Also, here is a link to my Ayli deck, check it out. Ayli, Priestess of Broken Earth

Souljacker on Can't get this B/W Lifegain ...

If you only use it for the lifegain, I think there are better options. With tokens, you can think of cards like Path of Bravery, Vault of the Archangel (1 or 2), Tenacity, Ready / Willing, Whip of Erebos. If you want to try other colors and tokens, there's also Azorius Charm and Jeskai Charm that give all your creatures lifelink.

If you want to abuse Angelic Accord, maybe Bubbling Cauldron works nice if you have a lot of tokens. If you add Green, Brindle Boar is an easy way to trigger it, and Voracious Wurm likes all the lifegain too. Ordeal of Heliod is also a fun way to add a lot of life, and works well with creatures that can get counters on their own.
