Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle Discussion

Yeah, the paper price is a little daunting. I was using this on MTGO (the deck is $22 online, alot cheaper).

I definitely think I was underrating cards like Thaumatic Compass  Flip and Dauntless Bodyguard. I don't know how I missed Mirage Mirror, that would be great here.

I'm wondering if there are any cool Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle synergies we could add?

It's possible to try to combo with Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle, but because Brawl is a singleton format it becomes pretty convoluted and difficult.

The combo would involve having Teshar on the battlefield with Scrap Trawler and Sanctum Spirit. You would also need Metalwork Colossus in your hand or graveyard, and either a Mox Amber or an Ornithopter in hand.

You can then discard the Metalwork Colossus to Sanctum Spirit, cast the Ornithopter (or Mox Amber) and sacrifice it and Scrap Trawler to return Metalwork Colossus to your hand. Use the Scrap Trawler's trigger to return Ornithopter to your hand, then cast it and use Teshar's trigger to return Scrap Trawler to play.

You can repeat this process ad infinitum. Then if you have an Aetherflux Reservoir or Bontu's Monument on the battlefield you can win from the triggers.

All that being said, it's probably way to convoluted to be a reliable win condition. And it would involve adding quite a few cards to the deck. But I thought I'd mention it just in case you're a fan of janky combo wins like I am.

Arcaneful on BRAWL: Teshar?

Hey all.

I'm really starting to enjoy brawl, as it's helping me get some of my hesitant friends into magic! Currently I run a Demonlord Belzenlok deck, but I feel like I should try something else out to fight them with. Looking around at possible commanders I found Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle, and really like him, but can't make a list I feel is any good. I know mono-colored decks are hard for brawl, but I like the challenge and my friends all picked their commanders (they all happened to be mono-colored) and I thought I'd join in on the theme.

Overall I'm just stumped. I really want to make this guy work. I think with this list it's a sorta hatebears control situation but I can't find a way to end the game.


  1. I'm making a deck for around $40 to play with to teach my friends how to play magic.

  2. I wanna make it Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle.

  3. I can't figure out how to win with it, or make it really go into the long game.

Any thoughts?

Your equipment is so vulnerable to boardwipe. ); This must be fixed.

First, a nod to Darksteel Forge.

Just lost 10 equipment to someone's wipe? Never fear, Open the Vaults is here! Return all your lost equipment and then use Balan's ability to equip them all. Roar of Reclamation does just artifacts (so you're not returning opponents' enchantments), but also costs one more mana.

Faith's Reward can help you recover from a boardwipe, but you have to have the mana ready for it on the turn it happens. It also has good offensive/defensive utility - you can swing/block all out at people to kill your creatures and theirs, and then bring all yours back.

Not a Cat, but Daring Archaeologist gives you a bit of retrieval and also gets bigger as you play more equipment spells.

Also not a Cat, but Nahiri, the Lithomancer has lots of equipment synergy.

Last non-Cat, Teshar, Ancestor’s Apostle lets you recur artifacts as you cast more! Not a bad way to repeat ramp like Wayfarer's Bauble or Traveler's Amulet, or just get back artifacts that got blow'd up.

Hi liljramos88! Firts of all, thanks for the comment, I appreciate it! Now, I thought of putting Teshar, Ancestor’s Apostle and that might be the right call. The swords were there mostly for Danitha Capashen, Paragon but I think that her ability requires going more all in equipment and auras, I don't think that's right here. So I like cutting the swords for Teshar.

Heart of Kiran, on the other hand, I didn't thought of it, and it makes total sense. The scenario you put is quite something to consider!

I'm also thinking that being that the case, I could probably try to go only two colours, take out the Song of Freyalise and put some Historic or "cares about Historic" cards. The thing is, I was thinking that Shalai, Voice of Plenty would be more effective in a Selesnya build, rather than a deck like this. I still think that she's bonkers here, but the +1/+1 counters ability doesn't seem the best, and the Songs were here just for that purpose.

Anyway, you actually gave me some quite awesome suggestions and more than a couple things to think about. Thanks a lot, man! :D

Oh! Here's the Selesnya deck idea in case you want to take a look at it! ;) Voice of Dominaria! v2 Selesnya counters

Love knight I will run one Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle with all the historic spells you are running. Know this may sound weird but I am testing in my knigh deck is the card Heart of Kiran that’s to the two drop knights abilities you can easily crew the vehicle. I bought the challenger deck for $22 on amazon and it came with 4.
