Whenever another creature you control dies, it deals damage equal to its power to target player.

Stalking Vengeance Discussion
1 week ago
Hi! Saw your post on the forums, glad to see more Brion players out there.
In response to the forum post: in my personal experience Stalking Vengeance never did much for me. but with the choice between Insurrection or Aurelia, the Warleader, I'd cut the Warleader.
Now after having a look at your deck, I've got a few suggestions!
First off, you have a lot of high costed(6-8 mana) spells, but almost no ramp to speak of.
Boros Signet, Coldsteel Heart, Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, Fire Diamond, Hedron Archive, Marble Diamond, and Mind Stone are all good options. Focus on the 2 mana ramps because that a) allows for a turn 3 Brion and b) doesn't slow you down as much in the late game.
Ramp is important, and so is card draw. Unfortunately, Boros sucks at both. Still, artifacts like Well of Lost Dreams and Skullclamp are great, so through in some more like Infiltration Lens and Mask of Memory. Solemn Simulacrum is great too, though price is an issue(Kor Cartographer is the budget version). The color red also provides you with wheel effects, you have a couple but Reforge the Soul would help you I think.
Now the boring stuff is out of the way. How about some big creatures?! Hamletback Goliath, Thunderblust, and Serra Avatar are some good sackable fatties, and give great value for your dollar! Sun Titan is some good recursion.
Now for some win conditions to bounce off ya: Phyrexian Processor! Here's what you need: 9 mana, at least 1 more life than your opponent, and Brion on the field. Play the processor, pay most of your life, make a X/X creature, sack it to Brion, kill your opponent and gain all the life back! Works great with damage/lifegain doublers.
Phyrexian Devourer! Here's how he works. Exile cards off your library until he hits seven and his ability triggers, then sack him with Brion in response to the trigger, then keep exileing cards in respone to that to get it's power up to more than your opponents, then all that resolves and kills someone. This can all happen turn 7 which is nice.
Cut suggestions. Whenever I'm cutting stuff I look at the top of my curve first and move down. How much are these 6, 7, 8 mana spells doing for you? I'd take a long look at the two Akromas and some of the other angels, Stalking Vengeance, and Ryusei, the Falling Star. Further down the curve I see Taj-Nar Swordsmith(not using him to full potential), Magus of the Disk(just use the disk) and Vesuva(replace with Clifftop Retreat).
Hopefully some of this helps! Check out my Brion deck for a reference!

Been making some changes, came across Stalking Vengeance. It's a cool card that works well with the deck, but it's expensive and I need to keep it playable. Should I drop Insurrection or Aurelia, the Warleader ? I've played Insurrection before, but only once, and Aurelia is great but my deck isn't specifically combat based with Brion's ability.
Your input is appreciated! Other suggestions are welcome too. I don't have the budget for more expensive cards like Land Tax etc, so please keep that in mind when suggesting.

You got some great cards starting the deck off. Depending on what you want to do, additions can go a few directions. If you just want to pump out tokens and win by straight swarming, some quick additions would be:
Warstorm Surge + Triumph of the Hordes combo or on their own. Stalking Vengeance also combos with the latter and discourages board wipes (speaking of which Hour of Reckoning). I would really suggest Coat of Arms, Vigor, Domri Rade, Hull Breach, Aura Shards, and Spidersilk Armor.
What do you think/did you have any other definitive directions you wanted to take it?

11 Creatures! That's scary as hell. I like the ramp and I get that the creatures are somewhat not as needed given you have so many token generators in the deck, but I still run a bit more. Look for cards that will trigger effects when other creatures come into play (or die, as you sacrifice them a lot. I am now considering Goblin Bombardment). Your play style is all about pump and sac, but I noticed you wanted other win scenarios. I got your original playstyle adds, the traditional Swarming adds, and just some quality of life to look for. Sorry it's a lot.
Sac Win Adds:
- Thromok the Insatiable : The ultimate way to Sac your own creatures and become the scariest guy around.
- Stalking Vengeance : You won't have problems ramping in this deck, this allows you to sac kill one player, proc kill another.
- Descent of the Dragons : Sac AND buff. Can't get much better in your original play style.
Swarm Win Adds:
- True Conviction
- Juniper Order Ranger
- Tana, the Bloodsower
- Signal the Clans
- Coat of Arms
- Assemble the Legion
- Iroas, God of Victory
- Mirror Entity
- Stonehoof Chieftain
- Domri Rade
- Champion of Lambholt
Quality of Life Adds (for both styles):
- Warstorm Surge + Triumph of the Hordes combo (have you ever spawned 10 saps in one play? Win the game next time. This also works with creatures dying and proc'ing Stalking Vengeance)
- Hull Breach (much loved and forgotten card)
- Eldrazi Monument
- Spidersilk Armor (A much forgotten card that I've loved forever)
- Growing Ranks
- Sundering Growth
- Druidic Satchel (card advantage)
- Second Harvest
- Saproling Symbiosis
- Xenagos, the Reveler (your best ramp ever)
Obviously none of this is required. And it would be hard knowing what to put in and/or take out because of the many directions Rith, the Awakener can go. Bringing up Earthcraft though, it's not completely needed unless you want to run Squirrel Nest for the infinite token generator win scenario.

Love Omnath as a commander. He was my second commander I built actually. I'd recommend Tempt with Vengeance in conjunction with Omnath and a sac outlet, you could just win the game. If an opponent is foolish enough to take the offer, you will probably win. Elemental Bond Not only is it on theme, but your 5/5's also say "Draw a card". Evolutionary Leap Another sac outlet Stalking Vengeance Deal 5 more damage when a 5/5 dies Beastmaster Ascension This will allow your already large 5/5's to really end the game Gruul War Chant More 5/5 smash.
Have fun lightning bolting peoples domes off. also, "Not Gruul? THEN DIE!"

If you ran Deepglow Skate, you could add more planeswalkers to the deck to allow them to activate the ults immediately. Alchemist's Refuge and Leyline of Anticipation giving you flash is good to use Ramos on other player's turns, plus they go well with Seedborn Muse if you have it. Flameshadow Conjuring, Deadeye Navigator, Eerie Interlude, Faith's Reward, Progenitor Mimic, Stolen Identity, Rite of Replication, and Clone Legion allow you to abuse more ETB effects. Craterhoof Behemoth, Venser, Shaper Savant, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Zealous Conscripts, Acidic Slime, Chancellor of the Forge, Chancellor of the Spires, Sepulchral Primordial, Luminate Primordial, Duplicant, Dragonlord Silumgar, Sower of Temptation, Hornet Queen, Deranged Hermit, Myr Battlesphere, Angel of Invention, Cultivator of Blades, have great ETB effects to be abused. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Cytoplast Manipulator work really well with the Marchesa, the Black Rose you're running. Necropolis Regent, Master Biomancer, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Death's Presence, Experiment Kraj, and Verdurous Gearhulk are great for building up creatures with lots of +1/+1 counters. Greater Good, Prime Speaker Zegana, and Tishana, Voice of Thunder are great card draw sources for this deck. If you reanimate creatures from the graveyard often enough, Flayer of the Hatebound is strong in that department, and if you're looking for more big damage/lifeloss effects, Warstorm Surge, Stalking Vengeance, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, and Pathbreaker Ibex are good as wel. Conflux is really strong with Ramos in play, especially with Sakashima the Impostor copying him. If don't mind it being janky, you can copy your Panharmonicon by turning it into a creature with Karn, Silver Golem or March of the Machines. Take it a step further by adding Opalescence so your enchantments can be copied too. Ultimately, this is just supposed to be a big list of cards to draw inspiration from, not to all be added to the deck.

DerpyFace He's cool. Not great against wide strategies and only good against voltron if they aren't hexproof. Is he worth the $8? I'll think about him.
