Nomads is better because you can't grab Lightning Greaves from Protean Hulk's death trigger and greaves is also a little slow. Once protean hulk dies, you grab Grand Abolisher with the rest of the combo creaturesso opponents cant react anyways.

THere could also be a deck with some number of Simian Spirit Guide/Elvish Spirit Guide, Manamorphose, Flash, and Protean Hulk combo. Although not a gauranteed win every game like chancellor is, as it needs more pieces, it could win in response to any of the other decks.

Hey cobblepot! Fellow edh player here!

First of I'd like to say I love your Brago Lockdown list and it'd be awesome to see some more content of it over at the Labmaniacs channel!

So that aside I'd like to ask for your help. I am building a Brago deck of my own, which is heavily inspired by your list, however with some key differences:

First off I want to first create a Stax-less fast combo version of the deck to play in pods where stax would be too strong or disliked. Then I'd like to have a sideboard I can put in to play in stronger pods.

Secondly, my playgroup at my LGS imposed the following additional bans:Sol Ring, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt, Winter Orb, MLD and Protean Hulk. This is a big hit to Brago however he still works very well so I don't want to toss the deck.

I recently streamlined the deck to be an overall lower cmc, which greatly improved the deck, however I more often run out of gas than before and end up in topdeck mode. It'd be awesome if you could help me make the Stax-less version of the deck more consistent and then work out what cards to sideboard out for the stax cards I board in.

Kederekt Leviathan could be considered another win-con with how well it locks up the board. At worst it's a slightly worse Cyclonic Rift with a body and Unearth. At best it's a repeatable 3 mana instant speed boardwipe Kederekt Leviathan + Necromancy .

I've tried Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur. My main problem with it is it would usually punish one or two players to my left, and then die. I tend to prefer symmetrical effects as they make less enemies. Entomb is a recent addition so I may try Jin-Gitaxias again though.

Hermit Druid combo has always been one of my considerations, but it'd require a pretty big (expensive) deck overhaul. I can envision a version of this deck focused on disgusting Protean Hulk and Phyrexian Delver combos, but that's really not this version. I just want to hold 50 cards and feel like a Timmy right now.

gdm1989: Honestly, I don't think that Vraska, Relic Seeker fits in here. I might manage to get her ult, but she still comes down T6 and can only set an opponent's life total on T8...

hurricane219: I considered it for a while, but I didn't have a reliably sac outlet at most points. If I add it back in, I could stick some more sac outlets in and make it a faster way to get Protean Hulk...

Pallino: Thanks, I'm so glad you like it! :) The deck is definitely strong without Smokestack - that shouldn't be a problem. If your playgroup is very Timmy, though, do they resent infinite combos? If so, the deck might require some pretty heavy alterations.

Overall, though, the budget list for this deck isn't...amazing. I'd definitely pattern off of the non-budget version and adjust from there :) If you want to make this less staxy/comboy, it's definitely possible to include more Overrun-style effects (which are great with Deathtouch). I hope that helps!

I find Protean Hulk to be a great value/wincon in my Meren deck, use it to assemble combo pieces in a single turn

I've just realised that Protean Hulk has been unbanned. I'm wondering what I've could remove in the deck to make a place for him. Any advice?

Hey me again.

Which land do you think would be better for Meren? Glimmervoid, Meteor Crater or Spire of Industry

Also thinking of adding Protean Hulk think it would work well, what do you think I should take out?

Meren Deck:

Also I think Gemstone Mine would work well in Atraxa.
