Blade of Selves shinanigans

Hey guys so I just came across Blade of Selves and it looks super fun.

I run a Brion Stoutarm deck and feel it could be a potential game winner if I can equip it to one of my decks big hitters like Serra Avatar alongside Brion equipped with Thornbite Staff.

Just curious on your experience with the sword and if you think it could find a place in my deck. Thanks!


Do you even fling, bro? - first EDH deck

Putting Blade of Selves on a legendary creature without Mirror Gallery out just leads to dead tokens. White and red do have a lot of great ETB abilities to take advantage of the Blade though. Sun Titan and Restoration Angel for example.

why not just put vigilance on him instead?

Just to be clear you are saying equip brion with the sword and the staff. the sword would make tokens of brion when you attack with brion, the tokens are legendary and so as a statebased effect you have to kill all but one of the brions, which then untaps the equipped brion because of the staff.

Did you mean to say equip some other creature with the sword? In that case it is really good for your deck, definitely find a spot for it. tons of tokens to sac and fling then.

Oh shoot! I meant put it on one of my decks creatures like Serra Avatar or Hamletback Goliath.

If Brion had Thornbite Staff I could fling all the tokens plus the original to potentially end the game.

the sword should be an overperformer in your deck. I'd slap it on stuff with an etb or ltb effect when possible but even when it isnt possible that sword is retarded.

So I added the blade to my maybe board in hopes of picking one up soon. What are some good r/w tutors to go along with it?
