MRDOOM3 on Bruna OTK

I personally would also throw in a stronger aspect of control, since Bruna tends to be a huge beacon for removal/counterspells. I would suggest Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir for another Grand Abolisher, Silent Arbiter for survivability, Mystic Veil as pseudo-countermagic and as an alternate Alexi's Cloak, Rule of Law and Arcane Laboratory to keep opponents from comboing off like dicks before you take advantage of Bruna, Flickerform and Vanishing to account for sweepers like Damnation or the uncounterable Supreme Verdict.

If only Bruna had haste... Anyway, I would suggest Winding Canyons as two great lands Hall of the Bandit Lord so that she can attack on your next turn or the second she comes in. Command Beacon prevents her cmc from being too restrictive when she's removed too much.

Maybe you can consider Homeward Path to account for cards like Reins of Power?

If you want, you can look at my Bruna list here. Who knows, you might find some cards you like in there!

Awesome list. I'm making something similar, I want to control the board and ping everyone to death with Bloodartist and creatures similar and filling the board with tokens to sac. Never heard of No Mercy before I'm going to check it out! Have you thought about Tree of Perdition??

What about Silent Arbiter or Contamination ?? Kind of feel contamination is a little too mean for my taste. Lastly Gate to Phyrexia it's really expensive, but a great way to remove artifacts.

Right on! If you don't have red, you can't run Nicol Bolas! Or Decree of Annihilation, which is absurd!

How did you end up choosing Progenitus? I've built a similar deck and I decided to go with Ramos, Dragon Engine because he can give you absurd bursts of mana to cast spells like Decree or Expropriate. I see a lot of similarities between your deck and my deck so you might be interested:

One criticism - Crawlspace doesn't actually protect your planeswalkers at all; it only keeps your opponents from attacking you with more than two creatures. You might want something like Silent Arbiter or Dueling Grounds instead.

@Dadada5717: Hmm... Well, I can think of a fourth; Venser, the Sojourner. Freyalise seems like a good idea to remove, but removing Clockspinning is like removing a key piece. I do have a surprise that can work when dealing with Silent Arbiter & Humility. I'll get to it later...

MRDOOM3 on Bruna, Light of Alabaster

Silent Arbiter is another nice way to slow down attackers.

Sovereigns of Lost Alara is another nice Aura tutor.

Corrupted Conscience is just another nice aura for Bruna.

I'm assuming you're excluding Eldrazi Conscription because of cost.

Definitely throw in Hall of the Bandit Lord, Winding Canyons, and Lightning Greaves (Shroud does not interfere with Bruna's ability) for a good amount of haste/attack as soon as she comes in.

If you do not wish to throw in more haste enablers, then you should definitely consider some aspect of control/flicker, because, believe me, Bruna tends to be a target for removal/counterspells, and her mana cost can get considerably restrictive if she's removed too much. I would suggest Grand Abolisher, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Rule of Law, Dovescape, and Arcane Laboratory. Evasion like Flickerform and Vanishing are also really important as well.

I'm not sure you really need hexproof creatures other than Sigarda. She's nearly impossible to remove once you give her Indestructible, and the point of this sort of deck is to stack up one creature to scary proportions; and since this is commander you'll always have her. I'd suggest more creatures with good blocking capability like Sentinel of the Eternal Watch, Silent Arbiter, or Nyx-Fleece Ram, or utility creatures like Auramancer and Heliod's Pilgrim. I'd also recommend Sigarda's Aid so you can flash out auras as needed.

A few good enchantments you're missing out on: Battle Mastery, Ghostblade Eidolon, Abzan Runemark, and Shield of the Oversoul are all very powerful buffs. Flickerform makes Sigarda almost invincible (it takes coordinated opponents to take her down). Some tutors would be useful Open the Armory and Three Dreams are fantastic.

Don't overlook equipment in this sort of deck, you have a lot of enchantment synergy, but there's some fantastic equipment out there Darksteel Plate, Hero's Blade, and Sword of Vengeance to name a few.

I've found Tragic Arrogance and Cataclysm to be very powerful board wipes in this sort of deck.

My List is here if you want to see more.

Archangel of Tithes is good in pillow fort. Not very budget though.Isperia, Supreme Judge and Aurification are good at making opponents not want to attack youSilent Arbiter slows combat way down while you build your fort.The Vows Vow of Flight/Vow of Duty are good for politics
