alt text

A simple casual Voltron deck that focus on pumping up Bruna, Light of Alabaster as fast as possible to deal 21 damage to an opponent.

Your main goal is to get Eldrazi Conscription, Battle Mastery and any sort of evasion to be left unblocked such as Spirit Mantle. There is 3 place where Bruna can get her enchantment:

A. The Battlefield, not only yours, but theirs also. If you have any mean to steal an Aura from somebody else, please do it!

B. Your Hand. Just by tutoring some card in your hand you can avoid paying the large cost of some by attacking with Bruna.

C. Your Graveyard. They have Enchantment hate, no problem, just get it from your graveyard. Mirror-Mad Phantasm is there just to make sure you can have a chance to get what you want into your graveyard.

Several cards are there only to fasten your quest for Ridiculously Threatening Aura; Sovereigns of Lost Alara, Academy Rector, Idyllic Tutor, Three Dreams and Enlightened Tutor.

While White and Blue give you some good protection for your card and some extra evasion she lacks the Red that give you the needed Haste to make sure you can hit someone hard without them having the time to retaliate. There is some colorless option for making her haste that have been added to the deck; Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Helm of Kaldra and Sword of Vengeance with the added benefit of making her even scarier.

Now, if somehow you're not able to get Bruna out, there is an other way to win this game:

Take control of their Commander to deal the 21 Commander damage. No better humiliation. You may even pump their general so it deal more damage, careful though if they have Enchantment hate.



Added a couple of interesting cards based on previous comment and personal research.

Want to do a reset of the discussion, still need to remove couple of cards.

I would replace Scout's Warning with Flash . Also are you aware that your deck is currently at 107 cards? Which 6 are you going to cut?

Flash says from hand, otherwise it would probably be better.

I think you are overlooking Cathedral of War . Seems like a staple for any Voltron deck .

What do you think about using Traumatize on yourself before attacking with Bruna, Light of Alabaster ?

Needs more tutors. You should run Diplomatic Immunity . There are quite a few other options. Chariot of Victory is a new great haste option.

You should also note that you can get auras from your hand, your gy and any in play when you Attack OR Block. Makes for interesting combat tricks when your downplay the power of Bruna, Vigilance leaving her open to block and then slapping something big on her.

Minamo, School at Water's Edge would be pretty neat here after you do attack.

But toechill, Bruna has Vigilance.

Have you looked at Nomad Mythmaker ?

SeductiveWubz says... #15

would you really want Kira, Great Glass-Spinner in this deck? Her ability counts for you as well, so the first aura you attempt to enchant onto Bruna would be countered..

@SeductiveWubz It's really sad because when an enchantment gets countered it goes to the graveyard. :( I really wish Bruna, Light of Alabaster had some sort of ability that would check enchantment in graveyard. Sarcasm aside. It's a great ability for protection and it might hose off a few things, you're the one in control of your decision; meaning if it's not advantageous to play a card, don't play it. I mean, I also play Dovescape, never had a problem with it.

And same goes for Torpor Orb in a deck with Stoneforge Mystic. In the end it's simply a matter of how much you consider the risk. I've played Kira for a bit now and honestly I haven't much problem with that.

Open The Armory from shadows over innistrad seems like it would be a solid tutor for any aura/equipment in this deck.

Very nice +1. Could you review and upvote my St Traft Azorius Control?

Here. Check out my deck Bruna fun!. It's mainly based on drawing and extra turns but it worked out very well and I was able to mostly win with her.

Have you thought about replacing Helm of Kaldra with Chariot of Victory? In this deck it's, the only difference is that 1 less for the equip cost.

Try Alexi's Cloak. It is like diplomatic immunity, but also acts as a counterspell.
