Tamiyo's Journal Discussion
4 days ago
So here's my opinion. Keep in mind that it is just an opinion. If I were to build a Gisela and Bruna EDH deck, I would go for a voltron style, and use Gisela as my commander. She is stronger in combat and cheaper. Just buff her with some enchantments and equipment and try to burst my opponents down with 21 commander damage. Also run some card draw to get more buffs and hopefully draw Bruna for the meld trigger. Good card draw includes Alhammarret's Archive, Mesa Enchantress, and Sage's Reverie. Also maybe run Tamiyo's Journal to tutor for Bruna

Boros is always difficult for card draw and ramp. I'm going to list all the ones I have been playing with some of the budget ones are really great and some of the expensive ones really are worth the cost.
Here are some of the things I have been playing with and found useful for my Angel Tribal (work in progress) deck.
Ramp; Knight of the White Orchid, Burnished Hart, Wild-Field Scarecrow, Solemn Simulacrum, Pilgrim's Eye, Myriad Landscape, Pearl Medallion, Sword of the Animist, Khalni Gem, Armillary Sphere, Land Tax, Gift of Estates, Tithe, Oath of Lieges, Sword of Feast and Famine and Crucible of Worlds(which will allow you to hit all your land drops if you have fetch lands)
Mana rocks that can be used as ramp to get your fatties out early;Sol Ring, Worn Powerstone, Gilded Lotus, Hedron Archive, Boros Signet, Coalition Relic, Thran Dynamo, Coldsteel Heart, Chrome Mox, Chromatic Lantern, Commander's Sphere, Cultivator's Caravan, Manalith, Star Compass, Doubling Cube
Creatures;Sunblast Angel kills all your opponents creatures and is a nice flyer, Pristine Angel Can only be dealt damage by non-artifact colorless creatures aka eldrazi while untapped. If you give her vigilance she can't be blocked either. Color protection is Really really good. Mother of Runes you can use her color protection to counter removal spells on your creatures one per turn. Eight-and-a-Half-Tails more protection!, Blinding Angel if they can't attack you..., Angelic Skirmisher super effective for all your creatures to choose Each combat lifelink, vigilance, first strike. Giving all your creatures lifelink is definitely something. Iroas, God of Victory he's low mana cost & exceptional, Oketra the True, Steel Hellkite super utility removal. Duplicant Also exceptional removal of even indestructible things, which it seems you like with your current removal. Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs great with gisela, I see you like stuffy doll and boros reckoner how aboutCoalhauler Swine, Mogg Maniac, and Spitemare. They work Really well with damage doublers. When they pull out all the stops and attack you fora lethal 20+ damage, Selfless Squire and you get a 21+/21+ creature to attack past their tapped creatures on your turn.
If you like Deflecting Palm I'd like to recommend Ride Down, & Boros Fury-Shield. Pyrohemia is incredible with Gisela, as long as she is out and you only activate one at a time all damage is prevented to you and doubled to your opponents and their creatures. For stuffy doll and reckoner definitely enchant them with Pariah so when ever you are attacked that damage goes to your opponents instead!
Anyway sorry for the novel. I'm sure I gave you too much but hey it's better than too little eh?

I don't see a clear win condition. You could use Briarbridge Patrol and Tamiyo's Journal to search for and play Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. I like the combination of Lifecrafter's Bestiary and Sandwurm Convergence to generate a 5/5 creature each turn.

Okay, so I like the ramp that is in there, but I think you could leverage some things for late game that aren't currently in the deck, mainly Songs of the Damned, but in that vein, you should probably have a Dark Ritual or something akin to that in there too.
I think you'll need some answers if someone smacks you with a Melira, Sylvok Outcast or Thief of Blood (you know I have both lmao). With that, you could add a few from: Ultimate Price, Victim of Night, Terror, or Dark Banishing. If you really want a end-game winning spell, there is also always Plague Wind, but I really doubt you'll need it. I think you'll be wiping out most stuff pretty easily.
Things you have in your maybe board that I think are worth it: Deity of Scars, Awakening Zone, and Grim Affliction.
I think you can safely cut: Tamiyo's Journal, Tireless Tracker, Regal Force, From Beyond, Zulaport Cutthroat, and Wretched Confluence.
I get the appeal of the snake tribal. If you want to expand it, there's Snake Pit and Sakura-Tribe Elder. But, as it is, I think cutting it honestly wouldn't hurt you too much. Otherwise, I think you should expand it to really take advantage of tribal (Coat of Arms type things).
Other things I thought of looking though this you could add: Traverse the Ulvenwald, Mycoloth, Verdant Force, Regrowth, and Pathbreaker Ibex.

Hi bellz76. Thanks for the tips. Anointed Procession seems really sweet for the deck, and so does Tamiyo's Journal. The only problem I see with those cards is they are mana expensive. In the first version of the deck, I ran Tamiyo's Journal and Briarbridge Patrol combo with some big creatures. But I found out quickly that I just get destroyed before I can cast the journal by fast decks. I will add your cards into my maybeboard, but I don't know if i really want to buy more things for a deck that will rotate out of standard in the near future.

Have you considered Anointed Procession- it would double your clues and your soldiers from Ulvenwald Mysteries every time a new one came into play. You could also run a couple Mechanized Production as well. That can probably steal you a win here and there... the amount of clues you could generate would be pretty insane.
Also, with all those clues, how about Tamiyo's Journal. It's a free clue every turn (or two with the Illuminator out, or 4 with him and the procession) and you can then search your deck by sacking 3 of them... which pumps your Tracker or gives you 3 soldiers (or 6 soldiers) and gives you any card you need... all that costs no mana.
I think you could probably swap out the Jace's Scrutiny, Bound by Moonsilver, and the Graf Mole. The mole gives extra life- which is nice] but not necessary, the scrutiny saves you from 4 damage, but just for a single turn, and the moonsilver is a temporary fix.
You could go +3 processions, +2 Journals, and +1 Production. I know it bumps your curve up a little, but I also think it increases the power level of your deck.
If you're not looking to make those changes, you could add a Call for Unity. With as much clue sacking as your doing (or lands or whatever to the angelic purge), you will be able to trigger revolt every turn. And then you board state gets really out of control. Soldier tokens get to be real threats and your flyers can end the game quickly.
Just a few ideas. I hope they help.

Ajani Goldmane, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Managorger Hydra would all work well in your deck. For a 4 colored deck, Tamiyo's Journal, Divination, Map the Wastes and Font of Return seem rather weak, they can definitely be upgraded.

I appreciate the criticism and feedback!
This deck is very much in the streamlining process. Haha
I had wanted to use Emrakul, the Promised End because of the synergy with Briarbridge Patrol and Tamiyo's Journal. The idea was to have a secondary win-con aside from Mechanized Production. I also put Plated Crusher as an option over Emrakul because it also seemed pretty nasty. I really enjoy the effect from Briarbridge Patrol and am trying to find the best creatures to suit such an ability. Do you think the strategy is a bit too clunky for frontier?
I agree that cards like Fleeting Memories, despite awesome effects, are cluttering up the deck. I move it to the sideboard for now.
I'll have to take a look at the "Frontier League" and see! Thanks for recommending it.
Again thanks for the feedback.
