True Conviction Discussion
1 week ago
I would cut 2 Plains to start then cut these:
- Gift of Estates as you probably won't have that much trouble with land and not a huge need for ramp. Maybe replace it with Temple of the False God
- Leonin Scimitar
- Leonin Sun Standard
- Chariot of Victory unless you really want the trample badly
- Infiltration Lens
- Skullclamp surprisingly I don't think you have consistent enough 1 toughness things to kill with this to trigger the card draw (maybe keep and try Infiltration Lens if you cut this)
You probably want at least two or three more boardwipes:
I would make room for this enchantment:
Here are some suggestions for equipment cards to replace some of the cuts I suggested above:
- Hero's Blade
- Ring of Thune
- Moonsilver Spear
- Trailblazer's Boots
- Basilisk Collar
- Bonehoard could be fun
If you want a planeswalker, try Nahiri for her equipment bullshit:

As best I can gather, you seem to be heavily focusing on the +1/+1 counters part of your commander, which is interesting.
Considering you want to beef up your creatures, it may be an idea to sideboard or mainboard a boardwipe or two, and since you're going to have huge creatures, I think Blasphemous Act would be a good one for you. Especially useful for dealing with your opponents casting annoying little deathtouch 1/1's.
Warstorm Surge also combos very well with token generation, especially if said tokens ETB with +1/+1 counters already on them.
Also since you have quite a few cards that focus on ETB triggers I really have to suggest Strionic Resonator and Panharmonicon which will wombo combo insanely well together and with cards like Warstorm Surge and Cathar's Crusade, not to mention Purphoros. Together with those 5 cards, it really would only take you generating 5 1/1 tokens in your upkeep to kill someone from full health. And if you put more focus on token generation, I would suggest the brand new Amonkhet card that was spoiled recently called Anointed Procession and it's older green version Parallel Lives. Assemble the Legion may also be of use to you since you already have proliferate engines in your deck, and along with Doubling Season and the other two token buffers I just mentioned, you will have a great deal of tokens.
For lifegain, you could also consider True Conviction and perhaps some graveyard recycle for late game Archangel's Light. For a creature as well for lifegain, Patron of the Kitsune would work well, and you'll get multiple triggers per attack off your Archangel of Thune
Keep in mind, most of these suggestions will change the nature of the deck and how it plays rather than improve what's there. So take these suggestions with a grain of salt before thinking about buying these cards.

You need to add more cards that are good in EDH, and add some ramp beyond Sol Ring and Pearl Medallion. My suggestion for cheap ramp includes:
Other cards you may want to consider are:
White Sun's Zenith, Hero of Bladehold, Sun Titan, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Mentor of the Meek, True Conviction, Swords to Plowshares, Return to Dust, Martial Coup, Oblivion Ring, Captain of the Watch, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Recruiter of the Guard, Heliod, God of the Sun, Knight of the White Orchid, Mirror Entity, Mother of Runes, Emeria Shepherd, Bastion Protector, Oblation, Secure the Wastes, Austere Command, Open the Armory, Decree of Justice, Caged Sun, Obelisk of Urd, Dictate of Heliod, Shared Triumph, Elspeth Tirel, Secluded Steppe, Buried Ruin, Ghost Quarter, Rogue's Passage, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Kor Haven, Divine Sacrament, Bygone Bishop.
I would cut cards from the "Terrible" bracket first. They have no place in most EDH decks.

You currently have no means of putting Haakon, Stromgald Scourge onto the field, as you have no means of pulling him out from the graveyard and he can't be played from your hand. Unless you include a means of doing so, consider dropping him. Similarly, Enduring Renewal is not helping you here at all. You have no means of reanimating, so you would be hurting yourself with its use.
Right now you have a lot of Knights that pretty much only have Protection from White, and don't provide much synergy at all. On top of that, they have a lot of and which may be difficult to pull of with your land base, especially during early game. Concealed Courtyard is a good land to have in here, and it's Modern-legal.
Everything above considered, here are some Knights that may work well in this deck. Blood-Cursed Knight could be useful here, considering how many enchantments you have in the deck. Fiendslayer Paladin is quite good. Lone Rider Flip would proc off of Lifelink rather easily. Stillmoon Cavalier is versatile and functions similarly to Stromgald Crusader.
I should mention that Sorin, Grim Nemesis's Ultimate ability creates the tokens you want.
You could also consider giving your other Knights Lifelink, via Enchantments like Gift of Orzhova or Whip of Erebos. This deck has little ways of generating 1/1 Vampire Knight other than Call the Bloodline and even with that you will have to dump a LOT of cards into your graveyard, which with this deck has no benefit whatsoever, just to get a sufficient amount of tokens (and I need not remind you that you have no means of using any of the cards you will have discarded). You may even be better off not working with tokens and instead focus on your creature base.
Hope this helps!

Panharmonicon works so well with Brago that it's criminal.
Tezzeret the Seeker to search for Panharmonicon, it's that useful.
Venser, the Sojourner to give Brago unblockable, then blink Venser on combat damage and use his +2 ability in your second main phase to cause another permanent to ETB again.
Deepglow Skate if you're running this many planeswalkers. Ultimate them all.
Reality Acid is hated by my playgroup in my Brago deck. Due to the way you can attach auras to hexproof/shroud things when they ETB from Brago-like effects, and that it targets any permanent, makes it incredibly versatile.
I assume you're deliberately not running Deadeye Navigator?
True Conviction - gives Brago double strike, double the ETB madness.

How do we win? I see plenty of sweet synergy with blink and EtB, but no way to finish people off, other than beating in with undersized creatures. What about Eldrazi Monument, Akroma's Memorial, Cathars' Crusade, Dictate of Heliod, True Conviction or even Mirror Entity? Rite of Replication can often win games too.
I personally prefer a little token action along with my blink effects; Myr Battlesphere,Angel of Invention and Cloudgoat Ranger can all be blinked to quickly build an army, and cards like Chasm Skuller, Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Meloku the Clouded Mirror are great stand-alone token makers, while Faerie Artisans often gets you multiple Ephara triggers a turn and has synergy with your faerie subtheme. Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is probably decent too.
If you want to stay on the creature-focused plan, maybe some more recursion? Marshal's Anthem pulls double duty and is a pretty solid late-game top deck if the game hasn't been going your way. You're kinda light on removal too, Path and Plow are both fine, but I think you can squeeze in another wrath effect, and something like Detention Sphere can help get your 6/5 commander online earlier.
As for cuts, Force of Will doesn't seem worth it, unless your meta is super cutthroat. But it probably isn't since your looking to play Ephara. Maybe Counterspell, Swan Song or Memory Lapse? Paradox Haze doesnt seem incredible, either, maybe Leyline of Anticipation so you can really go off? Without a reliable way to pick them back up, I don't think that cards like Voidmage Husher, Phyrexian Revoker, Meddling Mage and Pestermite are worth it. These 4 can draw a lot of hate, too.

Hey soevilprofchaos, thank you so much for your thoughtful feedback! I hadn't played this deck in several years and I'm trying to really work on this one, which was my main deck last time I played, and get it solid before I look at my other decks or build new ones. Spirit Loop used to be in the deck, as did Unquestioned Authority. I will put them back into the deck in place of Drogskol Reaver and True Conviction, you were right, neither of those were very synergistic with the way my deck is set up currently. This is the 2nd major revision where I've cut and replaced 30-35 cards per edit, and some of the older cards that I thought were still good really aren't anymore. Spectra Ward was actually in the mail when you posted and I hadn't updated my list to reflect it. Definitely a great addition! I added Graceblade Artisan in my most recent update because I am really short on low CMC creatures decent to enchant when I can't cast my general, which is often with how much hate she gets. I see infect so little in EDH, I hadn't really considered Corrupted Conscience, but that does make lethal dmg easier. I'll see about working it in. Thanks again for your feedback!
