Optimator on Giant's Deck

3 weeks ago

I forgot about Stinkdrinker Daredevil when talking about ramp. He's dope.

If I had to come up with some ratios right now on the spot, I might say to run 36 lands, 10 ramp pieces plus the two free-summoners and Stinkdrinker for 13 total, 6 card-draw cards (8 if you include the two that are giants. Let's exclude them for a sec) Lets say you want 27 giants including the two from the card-advantage pile. That leaves 17 cards for utility and removal. Not a tiny amount but not a ton either. Maybe 9 removal cards and 8 utility? Maybe cut a giant or a removal or utility card for some more card draw too?

Hmm... just realized that list doesn't include any "Brion" cards... Might want to trim two giants (and maybe one ramp card. Be careful with that!) add Mimic Vat or Feldon of the Third Path... Phyrexian Processor too... you've got some decisions ahead of you! Perhaps a removal card or two can be cut. You may miss them though!

Anyway, no matter how you massage the numbers, you're probably looking at something like that.

Optimator on Giant's Deck

Even though you are primarily Giant-Tribal, you may still want to have a small suite of "Brion" cards.

I have a Feldon of the Third Path and Mimic Vat, both of which are extremely good in Brion decks. I also have a Adarkar Valkyrie, which can be good too.

Gift of Immortality is extremely good with Brion. I don't have one though.

Sigil of the New Dawn isn't the most efficient, but can be good.

I have a Serra Avatar too, which is the best Fling-able creature around. Evra, Halcyon Witness is great too, but I don't have one. It's cheap though. A Stalking Vengeance would double up Brion's damage, but I don't think I have one either. Reya Dawnbringer is way mana-expensive but can be useful with such pricey giants dying left and right.

Flameshadow Conjuring can be good with Brion too. I don't think I have one though.

Phyrexian Processor is one of the craziest pieces of Brion tech around. It's not too expensive--I would totally slide this card in, even if I was doing Giant Tribal. You can get blown out, but the payoff is enormous.

Another piece of Brion tech is Grafted Exoskeleton, if you wanna be dirty.


Since Brion isn't the center of the strategy, protecting him isn't at such a premium. Cards like Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves are still good for protecting your big giants though. It may be worth sliding some cards like that in, but since it's a casual deck you may get away with none.

That said, I have Whispersilk Cloak and Mask of Avacyn in my collection.

Another option on a budget is Mirror Shield. Darksteel Plate is pricey but fantastic when you want to stick a huge beater and keep it around.

I have a Cradle of Vitality on-hand. Might be really good!


If you have any more Threaten-effects, those are functionally creature removal with your commander out. Perhaps a couple of cards like that deserve a slot. Captivating Crew is fun because it's repeatable. Song-Mad Treachery  Flip is cool because it's a land too!

I own: Hijack - Grab the Reins - Mass Mutiny - Traitorous Blood - Traitorous Instinct - Portent of Betrayal - Word of Seizing - Harness by Force

There are many more.


Illusionist's Bracers is very good with Brion, even with less of a focus on him. Probably worth keeping in.

I think Minion Reflector won't be good--too expensive. Seance is decent but probably won't be reliable often enough to make it worth a slot.

SimicVisionRy on Sakashima, of a thousand faces …

If cloning's your game, then I have a (few) name(s)!

So if cloning is your go to, I'd suggest things that can allow you do go big, quickly. If you are absolutely deadset on Sultai, I understand, but possibly choose Temur? With cards like Riku of Two Reflections?

Another option would be Naya, with Ghired, Conclave Exile?

Some good ideas could be: Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Kindred Charge, Desolation Twin, Giant Adephage, Phyrexian Processor. The new Scute Swarm and Skyclave Relic, and some artifact Shenanigans with Mechanized Production.

Some good, generic populate cards like Druid's Deliverance, Ghired's Belligerence, Second Harvest and of course, Trostani, Selesnya's Voice.

Hope these few Ideas help you out!

king-saproling on Angel Token

Looks great so far. You might like these: Adorned Pouncer, Angel of Sanctions, Bramble Sovereign, Mimic Vat, Requiem Angel, Regna, the Redeemer, Soul Foundry, Phyrexian Processor, Helm of the Host, Ezuri's Predation, Aura Mutation, Giant Adephage, Herald of the Host, Nacatl War-Pride, Arachnogenesis, Song of Freyalise.

Note: if you copy a token that would normally be temporary (like those from Nacatl War-Pride), the new copy will stay indefinitely since its source (Rhys/populate/etc.) does not specify to exile or sac it. This is super strong with War-Pride and Herald of the Host since the token copies will go on to make more copies, leading to exponential increases in number each turn.

Ziabo on Trostani life tokens

This is how I want my deck to look :3

Will be ripping stuff from your list like Panharmonicon I can get some use out of this.

What about Phyrexian Processor or Phyrexian Rebirth to get some chonkers with little downside? Phyrexian Processor can refuel your life in a heartbeat.

Rebirth can wipe and leave you with a big token to populate on (I know it's a little heavy for a wipe though)

Some of the cards you're running you may run into problems with as you test your deck out. Gifted Aetherborn is great in formats like standard, but in Commander it's harder to make use of a small creature that doesn't impact life totals very much. Perimeter Captain has the same issue. If someone is attacking you, it's probably because they have the advantage in the combat step so blocking once with your defenders before they die won't help a lot. Wall of Essence and Souls of the Faultless have the same issue, although out of all of them the souls of the faultless seems like the best if you were to keep one. Serra Avatar can be chump blocked and you have no way to reliable give her lifelink, so she's a big card that doesn't do much. Student of Warfare really doesn't seem to fit the lifegain theme of your deck. Axis of Mortality doesn't seem to fit your deck either. If your deck is working right, you will have the highest life total. So why change it with someone else? And there isn't much advantage to swapping opponent life totals either. Fatal Push just doesn't cut it in a format like commander with big finishers. Same with Summary Judgment. I'd take out Cradle of Vitality as well since your deck mostly about triggering small incidental pieces of lifegains and not huge swings of it.

I suggest removing these cards just so you can have more lands. A good rule of hand I use for commander is that you run 32 lands + 1 land for each color + 1 land for your commander's converted mana cost. For you, that'd be 36 lands. This is very flexible, btw. I would suggest Rogue's Passage being one of those lands because your commander can get very big. You can just kill somebody with those 21 points of commander damage if you'd like. Two other great cards are Bloodchief Ascension and Phyrexian Processor. They seem to work well with your deck. Just make sure to have another 4 mana to at least activate the processor once before it's destroyed.

I really like this deck. This is just hysterical. Phyrexian Processor, Plague of Vermin, and Bond of Agony can be fun. Keep up the good work!
