Unquestioned Authority Discussion

Cutler on Brago, King Of ETB

If you need more draw some cheap additions to go with brago's blink = Traveler's Cloak, Unquestioned Authority, Pentarch Ward

Act of Authority to remove your opponents stuff you dont like

Definitely grab yourself a Command Tower for some color fixing in your lands

Swiftfoot Boots gives brago protection + haste to trigger his ability faster

Sol Ring is a big commander staple and will help you cast brago faster, so will Basalt Monolith

Peregrine Drake to give you more mana to cast stuff, blink with brago for big mana turns

Cloudform and Lightform = get your creatures on the battlefield as 2/2's with evasion then cast them for their mana costs

These are all pretty cheap cards hope this helped :)

Junk_Heap on The Loneliest Pup In Commander (1v1 MTGO)

  • Thanks for the suggestion on Entangler. The deck used to have a few defensive cards like that but they were removed because the deck's strategy is very aggressive and you want Isamaru, Hound of Konda to attack every turn, controlling the tempo of the game by keeping the opponent on their back foot. Entangler combined with Spirit Mantle, Holy Mantle, or Unquestioned Authority could stop my opponent from swinging at me, but I would have to take a turn off from attacking since I don't have a way to give Vigilance to Isamaru, Hound of Konda. I think there are some niche scenarios where Entangler could be useful, but not enough to warrant its inclusion. I am interested in hearing other suggestions you have!

Titaniome on Bruna, Light Auramaster

Hello fellow Tappedout user. Thanks for your kind advices on my deck.

First, i never thought of running tax type enchantment in this deck. I do in some of my others commander, but not this one. Ill hightly consider it. Probably Grasp of Fate will be replaced.

Second, i don't run smaller auras beacause i never really cast them, i all cheat them so the mana cost isn't an issue. I used to run Spirit Mantle over Holy Mantle, but it then got replaced by Unquestioned Authority. Its more or less the same for the other you proposed, but Ethereal Armor could make the cut.

And last, for the draw engine, i don't run those creature because, like i said, i almost never cast the auras. Thats why i prefer card draw cards who give loads of cards, but you need to discard some, usually the auras go because Bruna bring them back for free. Rhystic Study is really good, but i ain't got any of these yet.

Once again, thanks for your advices, you helped me make this deck better.

eeriekiller on Tier 1 Stax General?

I made a $60 version of Brago, King Eternal that did really well for a casual deck. Sadly, I don't have a list because it's been upgraded but here are the main pieces.

Strionic Resonator, Altar of the Brood, Sol Ring (any amount of mana rocks that produce a total of two mana), and brago = infinite mill

Strionic Resonator + Oblivion Ring/Detention Sphere + brago exiles the board permanently

Muddle the Mixture toots for Strionic Resonator

other cool cards are Peregrine Drake, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, Thorn of Amethyst, Vryn Wingmare, Tangle Wire, Parallax Tide, Parallax Wave, Reality Acid, Stunt Double/Clever Impersonator, Traveler's Cloak, Act of Authority, Storm Crow for power, Treachery, Phyrexian Ingester, Resolute Archangel, Duplicant, Sun Titan, Genesis Chamber, Stasis (personal favorite), Mystic Remora, Lavinia of the Tenth, Lyev Skyknight, Cloudblazer, and Unquestioned Authority.

Brago plays best in a pod. 1v1, he doesn't really have a lot of time to set up his stax/combo. I hope you like the deck as much as I do!

Here is my current build.

Unquestioned Authority over Holy Mantle? While the +2/+2 is nice if you want to actually shoot for General Kill but its expensive for an enchantment that only effectively provides unblockable. Authroity replaces itself and also Brago survives if you get Sun's Champion at the same time.

Angelic Destiny might be useful. Holy Mantle, Spirit Mantle, and Unquestioned Authority can give her pro-creatures. You also might want to consider more umbras (for totem armor): Boar Umbra and Mammoth Umbra both have effects that would be pretty good, Eland Umbra, Felidar Umbra, Indrik Umbra, Snake Umbra, and Spider Umbra have less good effects, but do include the board wipe protection. Replenish and Retether help bring enchants back from grave right on Sigarda. Also, what voltron deck would be good without Fireshrieker? Other suggestions: Herald of the Pantheon, Silverblade Paladin, Divine Reckoning, and Sphere of Safety.

Everyouthful on Bruna EDH Aura/Control Deck

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!

MagicMarc on Painfully Extorting An Infinite Combo

I like the deck.

I just wanted to say that Karmic Justice does not seem to have a mainboard place in this deck. It does not offer any protection at all and the only things it triggers off of in your deck are your lands and your one other enchantment Exquisite Blood. I would definitely suggest sending it to the sideboard or out of the deck and replace it with something that either offers you some control, protects your cards or helps advance your game plan.

Replace it with something like Blind Obedience. It has extort so it is another source of slowly bleeding your foes. It forces all of their artifacts and creatures to enter the field tapped which screws their tempo along with your copies of Duress. It is also a removal magnet which offers a kind of "protection" for your other cards. If that does not suit you, try out Succumb to Temptation to help with card advantage or stalls. You have so much lifegain that the secondary cost is incidental and you can cast it at instant speed.

Finally, if you need more protection for your stuff, just swap the justices for copies of Rebuff the Wicked. Serves much better as protection for your cards in play. It also will be awesome to counterspell someone trying to stop your combo from going off. If the price is too high, go with something like Pentarch Ward or Unquestioned Authority. They offer protection of a sort for your creatures and even cantrip so you get a free card draw.
