Wow, we definitely have different opinions on how to run this haha, but that’s totally ok! That’s what makes this game great. The instants are what make this deck so much fun for me because I love pulling combat tricks on folks, and well, the fact that things can be countered applies to all the reanimation spells as well—although that is not to say the reanimation stuff is bad. It’s another clever way to work with how Skully keepa his counters, which is fantastic. Plus it prevents you from having to pay commander tax, also clutch. I suppose Ive never really worried about paying the tax though since he starts off at 2. Ive played plenty of games where he’s ended up costing 14 or 16 lol. I used to run more ramp and looking back at my list i think i will make a few adjustments in that regard.

Stuff like Skarrg Goliath is expensive but they are game-changers and I love that. Plus in the event I need a creature on the board I can throw him down. Epic Proportions and Enlarge are super hilarious to me and have worked. Of course every meta is different so for you maybe they wont. Lastly, Berserk and Hatred are generally one shot kills. Again, something I think is phenomenal in voltron. But to each their own!

I like Keen Sense ! Ill try to get my hands on a copy. I run Rogue's Passage too. Bear Umbra , Snake Umbra and Spider Umbra are dope auras too.

Glad you also sort of like Hot Soup !

Hello fellow Skullbriar player!

This is a great list! You actually showed me some cards I’m going to look into like Sixth Sense and Alpha Authority . Those seem amazing here.

Right off rip, I’d say Armorcraft Judge is a great card. Here are some others I use:

Ridgescale Tusker more counters

Skarrg Goliath Bloodrush!

Dauthi Embrace unblockable

Epic Proportions

Gigantomancer

Executioner's Hood

Trailblazer's Boots

Hot Soup this is a personal favorite!

Prowler's Helm

Enlarge and Berserk are also really really good. Hatred if you can get your hands on it also.

We both have a lot if similar cards. I think I have more unblockable stuff while you have more relating to counters.

Check my deck out here.. I’m down for any feedback you may have!

Good luck! +1

Zhur-Taa Druid : Best mana dork in R/G and there's no reason not to run it.

Fires of Yavimaya & Ogre Battledriver : Haste makes this deck so much faster.

I have a very similar deck using Nikya of the Old Ways as commander, so I could go on with many more creatures I've found since the playstyles of the two commanders are similar. In general I would try checking out some more creatures with bloodrush (i.e. Skarrg Goliath ). I've found this ability makes the deck less predictable and is a viable win con with commander damage.

Nikya of the Old Ways is also credited on Rust Scarab, Skarrg Goliath, and Rubblebelt Raiders. I believe Nikya is a shaman for the Gruul. If so, I'd like to see this character get a card.

I don't like Angelic Page, he has to to use his ability, where Exalted is immediate. He can pump a blocker, but not sure the +1/+1 is worth it.

I'd probably rather have a Neurok Stealthsuit (Shroud) over a single use Favor of the Overbeing (Vigilance/Flying). Even if you don't have the for attach, just pay equip. It's not bad, but Exalted/Shroud/Hex are more valuable in single removal scenarios, especially if your sorcery +'s them. Have to reply on the protection spells to save them.

Skarrg Goliath CMC7 Bloodrush at least is instant, Enlarge you'll have to be sure to have the CMC5 + a protection spell (or shroud/hex) before engaging that. Why does it have a monster kitten in the pic!

You should have lots of blockers (the exalted crew), Guardian of the Gateless is a flying blocker, but dont think you need this ability. Palace Guard is even worse with no flying, Fog instead it's the same thing pretty much. Since neither has Exalted anyway.

I like Soul Snare going to need to work that into some of my other decks (like Alesha, Who Smiles at Death.

Hunter's Prowess gives draw, and Revenge of the Hunted Miracles.

Collective Blessing might be interesting for you. Increasing Savagery too is better. These effects are permanent, and Increasing Savagery has recursion (flashback) too!

Banishing Light is similar to Oblivion Ring and doesn't carry the $2 burden of Journey to Nowhere. If you planning on Infinite Combo off of the the ETB/LTB of Journey to Nowhere then keep it, if not, I would just go with Banishing Light (even though it can't infinite combo)

Pentarch Ward feels missing, it gives Pro-Color of your choice, the best part is it draws a card to replace itself (and you can still choose white). Never hurts you because of the draw, unless they remove the creature in response.

In your maybeboard I like:

Giltspire Avenger Exalted and can deter attackers, but 3 colors and $1+ makes sense to be a cut.

I would make room for Battlegrace Angel, has exalted and gives your Exalted Attacker lifelink. $0.56!

Cathedral of War was the land I was thinking about Friday, but it's $1.50! Can't include.

Sovereigns of Lost Alara is very powerful, tutors the exact aura you need for any situation, and probably makes them unblockable or lifelink in the process. With every strike it becomes lethal. $5 hard to account for but might be a way.

Rhox Charger is exalted and he has built in Trample, 3/3 Exalted for CMC4 isn't too bad for $0.25.

Stoic Angel would be an auto-include for me, especially with all of your guys making creatures come into play tapped. Swing with your Vigilance (Flying) Angel alone, and avoid any type of counter-strike from opponents. No going to find a better card for $0.50.

Grunn, the Lonely King is another option, he's CMC6 for 5/5 no Trample, but when he attacks, Stack his triggered ability, and then layer on all the Exalted, after the exalted get added, he doubles himself. If you have the kicker 3 a 10/10 for 9 is still ok. Needs a Rancor but he's pretty reasonable, especially with all the built in evasion effects.

Suprised you don't have Knotvine Paladin, he gets +1 from the Exalted ability, and stacks a second +1 for each "untapped" creature, which they all are, so doubles the Exalted when he attacks, another good finisher like Grunn, the Lonely King when evasion is available.

Cold-Eyed Selkie can draw some cards, since your not using blue much you don't have as much draw, since he's still works. Also if you can Exalted and Islandwalk someone, can repopulate your hand.

Swords to Plowshares is the best removal in Budget for $1.

Open the Armory is another Swiftfoot Boots, very important.

Farseek is good, can pull that Island for you.

Sigil of Valor is the exalted equipment because it doubles the Exalted effects!.

Behemoth Sledge is another (slightly worse) Loxodon Warhammer.

Simic Signet/Azorius Signet might be good for getting the as well.

Sigil of the Nayan Gods not bad, because if it useless, it has Cycling.

I'll continue further review later, off the top of my head,

Reciprocate generally bad, once it's hit your life it's too late, someone (situational) it will be good, but most creatures you NEED to remove aren't attacking, and if they are, the specifically have to attack you, and you have to choose to let them hit your life. Condemn is better because it can attack anyone, and doesn't have to connect to your life specifically.

Skarrg Goliath is too high CMC to be useful, and his bloodlust is also too high CMC.

More to come later, I used to have a Daxos of Meletis deck, so I have some ideas, but I utilized the quite a bit more. Fun Selesnya build. +1.

rob_shifflett on Need more power!!

Skarrg Goliath and Wrecking Ogre seem like a good fit here. Some of the other Bloodrush cards might be helpful.

Blink cards seem like Cloudshift to reset the Hexproof and cards like Ghostway to get past board wipes could make this deck quite resilient.
