Righteous Authority Discussion

Auriel on Bruna Transform!!!

1 month ago

I have a Bruna deck as well and some cards I find very helpful are Kor Spiritdancer, Starfield of Nyx, Hero of Iroas, Ajani's Chosen, Enduring Ideal, Celestial Mantle, Sphere of Safety is almost a must run until you can get her going, Nomad Mythmaker, Winds of Rath. Bruna can be removed and if she is it's important to have backups!

007ooi, thanks for the comments. I agree with the helm being less fun, I'm just not entirely sure the direction I want to take this deck yet. I was initially think of "control with a free draw engine as a commander", but it seems like I've been taking it closer to voltron-control, and should just take it fully that direction. In that case, Righteous Authority with doublestrike seems like a good way to 1-shot someone.

I only plan on proxying it while I make sure I like the list. I've found that it can take me a bit to settle on a list, and until I do that buying each change I want to try makes things cost way more. It's very possible I'll proxy this and realize that I don't like the playstyle (like the Dralnu deck). If that's not true, I'll start getting the pieces for it. That being said, I haven't really put much thought into the manabase yet, and didn't notice Cavern was still in there. Not only is it the most expensive card in the deck, but I don't think it's really worth running, so I've cut it. I plan on getting stoneforge though (even though I don't have expensive equiptment to synergize with the activated ability, it's really cool so I'd want to play it).

Anti-draw tech is an interesting way to go. I'd have to change a lot of my instant speed draw (mostly the X draw blue cards), but I could see it as being worth considering.

That's a good point about Swan Song - it might still be worth running for me because of how many sources of trample/unblockable I have, but it'll be something to watch out for during games.

I think that a two card infinite combo (even if it eliminates one opponent at a time) would be pretty dissatisfying to lose to, especially because Rest in Peace is already worth running entirely independently of Helm of Obedience, which as far as I can tell is, conversely, only worth running for the combo.

Also, I have to say - considering I assume this deck will be proxied, a few of the more expensive cards are irking me. I don't run Cavern of Souls in Intet or Stoneforge Mystic in Marchesa because they're too expensive for me to actually acquire. I'm down with proxies, but when they start being straight upgrades over cards I'm running due to my own budget...

Anyways, I think that this is a really interesting deck and that Vanishing is a great idea. I would also point out (which I'm sure you're aware of) Righteous Authority as another way to pump Ojutai.

Because Ojutai doesn't draw cards, you could also consider anti-draw tech (Something like Uba Mask?). This is a risky idea because obviously, as a control deck, you're trying to draw cards. However, UB gives you the spicy option of Spirit of the Labyrinth alongside Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar - which turns all of your card draw into even-better-than-card-draw and gets around cards like Spirit.

It seems like you're going light on the creatures, for obvious reasons, but either Eidolon of Rhetoric or Rule of Law are also good options for fucking up combos or decks trying to cast a lot of cards in a turn (like Treva or Nekusar). Mana Maze serves a similar function.

If you're concerned about too many O-rings, Return to Dust is fantastic removal. Also Thassa, God of the Sea is great for running through your deck or giving your commander unblockable.

Last comment: I personally took Swan Song out of my similarly controlly Intet deck because it was too much of a liability to give an opponent a blocker for my commander, who normally gets through with evasion and serves as a win-condition/draw (similar to Ojutai).

A Righteous Authority works well as a nice boost for your commander, and adds some card advantage.

You have quite a lot of lands and minimal acceleration, you should probably cut between 3 and 6 lands and replace them with some mana ramp like Azorius Signet, Azorius Keyrune, Azorius Cluestone, Fellwar Stone, Coalition Relic, Knight of the White Orchid, Solemn Simulacrum etc. You can find lists of the best mana rocks in EDH online, these are just a few examples.

You could probably use a few more utility cards, like removal and boardwipes, and remove a few buff enchantments since you have quite a few. Invocation of Saint Traft doesn't work well with your commander damage goal, Pariah isn't fantastic since you usually want to prevent your commander from dying, Charisma often won't work since she'll be big enough to kill anything that blocks, and Corrupted Conscience and Treachery don't really mesh with the deck's theme.

I think you should replace these with efficient removal and some boardwipes; Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Return to Dust, Cyclonic Rift and Relic of Progenitus/Tormod's Crypt covers most threats you might face.

Since you're playing a voltron deck with no way to make massive amounts of mana, Sphinx's Revelation isn't a great way to refill your hand, try Recurring Insight.

Depending on your meta, you might want to replace some countermagic with ways to refill your hand after you play it all with Bruna; there are a lot of draw spells in blue/white so I'll leave that to your discretion, but I think Fact or Fiction is a must since you can get back any enchantments that go to your graveyard and Sage's Reverie works really well with your theme.

I think I'm about out of specific suggestions, so I'll just leave a list of stuff that probably isn't great in your deck and stuff that I think would be good:

Good luck with your deckbuilding, Bruna is a super fun commander :)

the other Isperia, Supreme Judge ( or Bruna, Light of Alabaster if you really like a voltron enchantment build) is better. she'll give you card advantage, which pulls you ahead. then replace most of the lands with basics, running more basic lands will help you more then Phyrexia's Core with no artifacts or Grixis Panorama in blue white, basics are the way to go. Ruination and Back to Basics are somewhat common in EDH. It also seems like your deck is trying to different things.one side is control, the other is creatures, and the other is voltron. try to get down to 2 ( like voltron and control) somewhat budget cards at about $2.50 each are Ghostly Prison Propaganda and Sphere of Safety ( these cards work well with an enchantment voltron type deck) higher quality creature is also important. Archon of the Triumvirate Blazing Archon Angelic Arbiter Sun Titan Resolute Archangel Lavinia of the Tenth Daxos of Meletis Angel of Serenity Medomai the Ageless Sunblast Angel Stonehorn Dignitary Angelic Skirmisher Frost Titan Auramancer Monk Idealist Sram, Senior Edificer. then with control Curse of the Swine, Reality Shift Render Silent Stubborn Denial Arcane Denial AEtherize Judge's Familiar Rewind Swords to Plowshares Detention Sphere Oblivion Ring Journey to Nowhere board wipes are kinda expensive so idealy its Wrath of God but on a budget Day of Judgment Planar Cleansing and if youre going for a heavier enchantment build then Winds of Rath will put you far ahead. card advantage Blue Sun's Zenith Brainstorm Preordain Ponder Mind Spring Stroke of Genius Think Twice and enchantments Righteous Authority Ethereal Armor Vow of Flight Vow of Duty Gift of Immortality Spectra Ward Favorable Winds Gravitational Shift Blind Obedience tokens and valueSigil of the Empty Throne Ajani's Chosen Decree of Justice tutors Plea for Guidance Three Dreams and lastly mana rocks are very good at ramping your mana, which is important for being ahead in the game and not falling behind. Azorius Signet Azorius Cluestone Fellwar Stone Coldsteel Heart Darksteel Ingot Mind Stone Worn Powerstone Commander's Sphere and very important is a Sol Ring! i hope this helps you a lot, i tried to stay with in a below $2 for every card and about 98% are within that budget. and i wish you the best of luck playing commander!
