Phyrexian Processor Discussion
3 weeks ago
Take a look at Phyrexian Processor! I run it in my own Ayli deck andperforms wonderfully. As long as you have been playing the deck right until the processors comes out,of should be able topour ten, fifteen, or even twenty life into it. For the rest ofthe game you have huge creatures to sac for hug amounts of life!

Thanks for the suggestions, passascats! All good suggestions, although I have reasons for not running two of them. I don't run Aetherflux Reservoir because I don't like painting that big of a target on myself, and I don't run Parallel Evolution because I'm not the only one in my playgroup that plays a token deck, and I feel like doubling all tokens on the field isn't necessarily a good idea. I actually made a conscious decision to take Coursers' Accord over Advent of the Wurm, because of the populate trigger. Once I have my token doubling engines online, as long as I have some token with toughness 3 or greater, it's still a better engine. I'll definitely look into Darien, King of Kjeldor and Phyrexian Processor, though!

You're missing Phyrexian Processor. It is completely broken with Trostani. Also if you want another crazy combo, Darien, King of Kjeldor basicly makes you immune to damage while Trostani is out. In most cases Advent of the Wurm is going to be better than Coursers' Accord. It's a little more situational, but since you're already playing Primal Vigor you probably don't mind, but Parallel Evolution can change games. With the life you'll be gaining you may also want to consider Aetherflux Reservoir, insta-kills can come in handy if the board doesn't let you take everyone out at once.I love my Trostani deck, it was the second deck I ever built, and it's still one of my favorites to play with.

Panharmonicon feels a bit underpowered in this list. It synergizes with some of your draw engines and your commander, but beyond that there aren't all that many good etb effects to double.
Next, you have a lot of cards that are simple one-off token producers, like Advent of the Wurm or Desolation Twin. I'm not sure if they're quite powerful enough to justify their inclusion. Perhaps some strong repeatable token generation that synergizes with your commander would be better. Crested Sunmare and Angelic Accord both generate large creatures every turn with Trostani on the field. Another strong repeatable token producer is Phyrexian Processor, which requires some life to start it off, but can produce giant tokens.

Hi! Saw your post on the forums, glad to see more Brion players out there.
In response to the forum post: in my personal experience Stalking Vengeance never did much for me. but with the choice between Insurrection or Aurelia, the Warleader, I'd cut the Warleader.
Now after having a look at your deck, I've got a few suggestions!
First off, you have a lot of high costed(6-8 mana) spells, but almost no ramp to speak of.
Boros Signet, Coldsteel Heart, Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, Fire Diamond, Hedron Archive, Marble Diamond, and Mind Stone are all good options. Focus on the 2 mana ramps because that a) allows for a turn 3 Brion and b) doesn't slow you down as much in the late game.
Ramp is important, and so is card draw. Unfortunately, Boros sucks at both. Still, artifacts like Well of Lost Dreams and Skullclamp are great, so through in some more like Infiltration Lens and Mask of Memory. Solemn Simulacrum is great too, though price is an issue(Kor Cartographer is the budget version). The color red also provides you with wheel effects, you have a couple but Reforge the Soul would help you I think.
Now the boring stuff is out of the way. How about some big creatures?! Hamletback Goliath, Thunderblust, and Serra Avatar are some good sackable fatties, and give great value for your dollar! Sun Titan is some good recursion.
Now for some win conditions to bounce off ya: Phyrexian Processor! Here's what you need: 9 mana, at least 1 more life than your opponent, and Brion on the field. Play the processor, pay most of your life, make a X/X creature, sack it to Brion, kill your opponent and gain all the life back! Works great with damage/lifegain doublers.
Phyrexian Devourer! Here's how he works. Exile cards off your library until he hits seven and his ability triggers, then sack him with Brion in response to the trigger, then keep exileing cards in respone to that to get it's power up to more than your opponents, then all that resolves and kills someone. This can all happen turn 7 which is nice.
Cut suggestions. Whenever I'm cutting stuff I look at the top of my curve first and move down. How much are these 6, 7, 8 mana spells doing for you? I'd take a long look at the two Akromas and some of the other angels, Stalking Vengeance, and Ryusei, the Falling Star. Further down the curve I see Taj-Nar Swordsmith(not using him to full potential), Magus of the Disk(just use the disk) and Vesuva(replace with Clifftop Retreat).
Hopefully some of this helps! Check out my Brion deck for a reference!

Not sure of your budget but some cards that work with Trostani and that I would recommend putting in:
Beastmaster Ascension this has been reprinted tons of times so should be fairly budget friendly.
Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter is another that works really well with Trostoni.
Ant Queen is another cheap token generator.
If you are looking to fill particular gaps, card draw, removal etc please let me know and I can help there.
