"Oh, Red doesn't get Lifelink. Not even in the multi-coloured cards. They don't care about their life total just as long as their opponent's total hits 0 first."

Licia, Sanguine Tribune and technically Butcher of the Horde and Brion Stoutarm and Spark Trooper and Rakdos Ragemutt and stretching it a bit Chromanticore and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder.

But I just thought to check it out - red gets lifelink as long as it is paired with with white or black.

Hobgoblin Dragoon and Martial Glory are both pretty terrible. I used to run a battalion/heroic deck in Return to Ravnica/Theros standard, and there's definitely some aspects I can recommend.

Boros Elite and Legion Loyalist are your 1-drops of choice. They're both on-theme and hit hard and fast.

Firefist Striker is your best 2-drop available. I'd run more of him.

Frontline Medic is great at protecting your attackers to make sure you can reliably trigger battalion, and Boros Reckoner can create some pretty favorable combat situations.

Spark Trooper is the bomb. Perfectly swings a game back in your favor vs other aggro decks with all that sweet lifegain.

In terms of noncreature spells, Boros Charm is so GOOD. Finish off with direct face damage? Check. Make a single, unblocked attacker suddenly scary? Check. Protect from boardwipes? Boros Charm has it all.

Happy brewing!

I'll throw my hat in with my personal "lol" deck:

Bad Luck Brion

It's all about doubling down on the efficiency of Ball Lightning "sack at end of turn" creatures. Sneak Attack a Spark Trooper, pump with Hazoret's Favor and Fatal Frenzy, attack, then sack to Brion Stoutarm at end of turn! 5 mana, 32 damage, 32 life, 4 "sack at end of turn" effects!

Birds of Paradise instead of Elvish Mystic , Stomping Ground Breeding Pool Steam Vents and 2 Wooded Foothills and 2 Misty Rainforest will flesh out your manabase, maybe Kitchen Finks over Tireless Tracker.

So why monstrosaur and why those 3 bombs? they dont really have much in common.. Spark Trooper Barbed Shocker Giant Solifuge all seem better than the Monstrosaur.

ZekeR, SirLag, hoardofnotions thanks for the comments you guys!!!!

Solemn Simulacrum will be replacing the cartographer next time I buy cards!

Risky Move seems too... perilous

hoardofnotions special thanks to you good sir!

I like those mana rocks! I'll probably pick some up to replace Fire Diamond etc.

Phyrexian Processor took the spot of Aetherflux Reservoir. I like to gain my life back.

Bloodshot Cyclops is in my sideboard, haven't really felt the need for him yet.

Gift of Immortality was nice, but cut for more aggressive stuff. Could find it's way back though.

Marshal's Anthem was cut for more card draw. Could also find it's way back it.

Actually, I was thinking that I'd cut the colossus for the Dragon! Read my mind!

Thawing Glaciers is slightly over my $5 budget, but it's on the radar for when I eventually upgrade this deck.

I thought spinerock world be great too, but I was wrong. I mostly exiled lands/mana ramp, and most of the creatures I'd want to cast would have to come after combat, thus making most of my creatures useless(say, Spark Trooper is the only good target, doesn't work). Anyway, I think I just don't have enough good targets for it, and got seriously screwed three times in a row.

Thanks again for the comment guys!

You'll want to take advantage of elementals that are sacrificed anyway, like Ball Lightning, Spark Trooper, Spark Elemental, Hellspark Elemental, Hell's Thunder and Arc Runner. Good luck!

off color fetches like Arid Mesa and Windswept Heath can grab Stomping grounds or basics without them coming into play tapped, which is huge for the tempo/speed of the deck.

also the deck now has a small splash of white, which both fits the samut flavor and allows for Spark Trooper join in.

Suns_Champion on Last minute Brion Stoutarm help!

11 months ago

Looking for some last minute opinions/suggestions before I buy some cards later. $5 and under please!

Take a look at the deck and then come back:

Bad Luck Brion

Commander / EDH Suns_Champion


Looking for suggestions of:

Powerful effects where the downside is sacrificing the creature at the end, like Fatal Frenzy or Hazoret's Favor.

Cheap R/W board wipes.

Mana base/mana ramp.

More big creatures like Spark Trooper or Ball Lightning.

In addition to any card suggestions you may have, a few questions:

+X/+0 effects( Rush of Blood ) or double damage effects( Furnace of Rath )????

Is Phyrexian Dreadnought worth the money?

Is Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker worth the money?

Thanks in advance!
