Sac-agwea's Ugly Brothers (haalp!)

Commander / EDH BRG (Jund) Stax Tokens

Permafrost


Description

It's time to sac-agawea (most of) yo permanents!

This isn't a ground breaking build of Shattergang Brothers, but hey, its still fun! I also happen to have all the Jund dual-lands, and the Bros seemed to be the best fit for my play style in those colors.

Card typically ran in Shattergang decks that I am not running:

Necropotence: I wanted to give Dark Prophecy a shot, plus necropotence shuts off Sylvan Library.

Grave Pact: this deck is already pretty mana intensive, and having another card with 3 black mana symbols didnt seem ideal. I am only runing Dictate of Erebos for the extra sac triggers. This might come in after i play the deck more, i might need the extra triggers for my opponents to help control the game.

Nether Traitor: Im trying Squee, Goblin Nabob in its place. It cost 1 more, but it doesnt have 2 sybmols. I also have a soft spot for Squee, I think he needs more love. Also trying out Bloodsoaked Champion for a recurring creature. So far, he seems to be a good fit.

Cultivate/Kodama's Reach: I dont run a lot of basics, and most of my ramp comes from artifacts. In fact, the only spell based ramp I run is Nature's Lore because its cheap and besides basic forests, I can grab 4 non-basic forests out of my deck. I love that card.

Not a huge fan of Goblin Assault since it makes my commander attack each turn, looking for a good replacement, preferably something that makes tokens for free, possibly another planeswalker?

Furthermore, my three slot is gigantic and it might need a haircut. Obelisk of Jund could come out for a cheaper, more sac-agawe-able option, like sphear of the suns, or sticking with a cmc rock, commander's sphear.

Anyway, let's hear some suggestions! There are a lot of good Shattergang decks out there, what are some things I'm missing?

Looks like a cool deck! I've never built Shattergang before, but in brainstorming, maybe something like Pentavus, Thopter Squadron, or Thopter Assembly? You can make creature tokens, but you can also sac the Pentavites or Thopters as artifacts, too. Or Hooded Hydra/Hangarback Walker, which you can cast big with the ramp you've got, then when you sac it to Shattergang Brothers, you get Snakes/Thopters as more fodder!

Dunno how competitive you're planning to be, but I thought these were some fun ideas. No idea how they'd play out.

Aurion819 thanks for the suggestions! I think I'll give Hangarback Walker a try. I like having the option of sacrificing the tokens as artifacts instead of creatures, one of the reasons I put Tireless Tracker in.

+1 for getting Shattergang Brothers to work. I tried 5 times and I could never get it to work XD.
