sonnet666 on Brago casual deck - I ...

4 hours ago

I built Brago way back when he first came out and have seen him go from fun bounce house to cutthroat stax. It's super interesting when a commander has a ton of range like that.

I think if you're looking for fun you need to set it up so you still have powerful effects, just not ones that are super oppressive. Make your ETBs be in the mid to high CMC range, and have them be powerful effects that don't make the game suck for the other players. All of the following are super good without being oppressive; Angel of Serenity, Trophy Mage, Lavinia of the Tenth, Stonehorn Dignitary, Nevermaker, Spine of Ish Sah, Act of Authority, Sun Titan, Luminate Primordial, Resolute Archangel, Recruiter of the Guard, Knight-Captain of Eos, Grasp of Fate, Exclusion Ritual, Reality Acid, and Parallax Wave (personal favorite).

Be sure to include Brago tech like Panharmonicon, Ancestral Knowledge, and Strionic Resonator (if you want it); good mana rocks to make sure you can get your big ETBs and get the most out of each main phase, Gilded Lotus, Thran Dynamo, Sol Ring, Mana Vault, Basalt Monolith, Talisman of Progress, and Trinket Mage (into Sol Ring/Seat of the Synod/Ancient Den/Darksteel Citadel); along with some solid draw to make sure you don't run out of steam, Wall of Omens, Sea Gate Oracle, Ichor Wellspring, Tsabo's Web, Mystic Remora, Rhystic Study, and Jace Beleren (only use the -1).

Some other fun Brago stuff: Medomai the Ageless, True Conviction (and all other doublestrike effects), and Dreams of the Dead.

Lastly, two of the best cards in any permanent-based Brago deck are Lightform and Cloudform, since they're pure card advantage engines that cheat your big spells into play.

Nice!

Soul's Majesty and Hunter's Prowess could be fun in this list. Loreseeker's Stone and Tower of Fortunes might help too.

Paragon of Eternal Wilds is quite nice for both your army and Omnath, Locus of Mana in one.

Also if you generate enough mana, the Glissa Sunseeker + Spine of Ish Sah mini combo might be a thing too.

Happy swinging!

Paradox Engine is seriously insane in Muzzio! With it being out Im usually able to combo off somehow within a turn or two. Paradox Engine + Spine of Ish Sah, Ish Sah targeting itself, repeat for infinite untaps (with enough mana rocks).

Reality Acid is a classic enchantment to include in Brago EDH; it forces your opponent to sacrifice a permanent every time it gets blinked, which is useful against certain permanents that would otherwise cause you a lot of pain.

Strionic Resonator allows you to get double value out of Brago.

Mulldrifter nets you lots of card advantage every turn.

Basalt Monolith's "can't untap" downside clause is negated by blinking it, which translates into plenty of ramp.

Reflector Mage punishes opponents hard and ensures they will rarely be able to replay their creatures.

Peregrine Drake also allows for lots of mana ramp, and in some cases, degenerate infinite mana combos.

Lavinia of the Tenth shuts down opponents' mana rocks, tokens, and other smaller permanents. Protection from red is also very useful in certain matchups.

Where is Panharmonicon. Nuff asked.

Act of Authority works as a makeshift Consulate Crackdown until you can draw the real thing.

Spine of Ish Sah repeatedly blows up permanents, and is really difficult to effectively remove.

Cloudblazer is your second copy of Mulldrifter, except maybe even better in this build.

Deadeye Navigator is an ETB abuse machine. With a reprint in MM17, his price is better than ever.

Nevermaker is another efficient removal machine. It also denies draw, which can be incredibly powerful.

Stonehorn Dignitary ensures you will never get to be attacked again.

Fires of Yavimaya and/or Anger could be helpful. Also, if you want more removal, seeing as you have alot of ramp, Spine of Ish Sah and/or Scour from Existence.

CaliburnAO on Colorless Artifact

May I ask why Door of Destinies and Coat of Arms are in the list? You have a large mix of creature types, so they're never gonna pump your creatures that much, and Artifact isn't a creature type, so they don't really fit all that well. Other than that, a very ambitious and interesting deck. Soul of New Phyrexia offers you some protection in Colorless, and Workshop Assistant and Scrap Trawler give you some additional recursion. Spine of Ish Sah and Duplicant give you some removal as well, and cards like Karn, Silver Golem can become a wincon by turning your artifacts into creatures. Just some suggestions, have fun with the deck.

FalconPunch thank you! I really love playing this deck, it's just so versatile. I like Aetherflux Reservoir because of the Sydri, Galvanic Genius combo. It's not too hard to get to 51 life, especially with Breya's ability. Use sydri to make the reservoir a creature and give it lifelink so you can repeatedly shoot everyone for 50.

I pulled Noxious Gearhulk for Spine of Ish Sah and Indomitable Archangel for Soul of New Phyrexia, thanks for the recomendations everybody!

Spine of Ish Sah is effectively a repeatable Scour from Existence, it doesn't exile but it has the artifact synergies you want in this deck.
