CurdBrosBrewingCo Deckspert

Hey There. We are a pair of brothers that love to brew and play MTG. We focus almost solely on the Modern Format (although we do play both Legacy and Standard as well; and every once and a while will brew a new deck for those formats if something exciting pops up ) We love Tapped Out, and truly believe that it is a great tool to build the best decks possible through a community of great minds!

Our main philosophy when brewing is "Resource Advantage". We believe having more (1) mana, (2) cards, and/or (3) both mana and cards than your opponent is the largest key to winning a game of Magic. We also are VERY fond of Planeswalkers (as we believe they are the best form of "resource advantage" there is in the game as they represent multiple spells, pseudo-life gain, etc .) We try to build based on this (although some are just fun interactions :)

We have different play-style/brewing preferences that are quite different. Typically:

Gavin prefers:

  1. Izzet based decks. He will sometimes splash a third color, and may not always use blue; however he uses Red in 99% of his decks.
  2. "Fair" decks that utilize the most efficient creatures and interactive spells to keep the opponent off of their game, etc.
  3. Complicated mana bases :)
  4. Card interactions (he likes each card to have multiple uses depending on the other cards in his hand).
  5. Planeswalkers. Gavin believes they are the most advantageous cards in MTG.

Taylor Prefers:

  1. "Combo" / Synergy decks - He likes "the sum is greater than the parts" decks. Devotion, combo, etc. are his favorite decks.
  2. Ramping - 100% of his decks thus far are green-based as Taylor believes mana advantage is the most powerful tool in MTG.
  3. Simic base- while he always uses green, most often it is paired with blue (and a third color sometimes).
  4. Draw "engines" - Taylor likes his permanents to draw cards. ETB triggered creatures, planeswalkers, and/or enchantments are his typical source of card draw.
  5. Planeswalkers - Taylor's planeswalkers tend to be a little more "focused" than Gavin's (I.e. He generally uses them to enhance other permanents in the deck); but he still uses a lot of them :)
  6. Elves - While not all of Taylor's decks are elf decks, most of his favorites are. Taylor has built several Elf decks and has an affinity for them.

Both of us still reach the same "resource advantage" mantra through slightly different means (efficiency vs. synergy); but all the decks will be focused on simply playing more spells than the opponent (which requires more mana and/or cards).

We look forward to learning a great deal from the many members of the site; and hopefully we can add some great decks to the MTG Universe!

We are soooo sorry to all who have posted over the last several moths. We were away for quite a bit (father passing, one "bro" having surgery, etc.) We will update our lists and try to answer everything possible ASAP.

Thanks Drinktime!!

Polukranos is an AWESOME card. It really should be in the 75 somewhere (as it's fetchable, costed really well as a 5/5 for 4, and his ability is amazing). I will be adding it at some point. Just gotta figure out what to cut :)

I've been trying out Garruk, Primal Hunter to see if it would be a good 1-of. It is spectacular with Genesis Hydra but not sure exactly what I would take out...Also, with no way to recur graveyard stuff it often instantly die to -3 (albeit while drawing a bunch of cards :) ) We shall see!

Quick note/interaction I forgot to add...withCourser of Kruphix and/or Carven Caryatid if you want to flip your Garruk Relentless you can actually target them with his "fight" ability. It won't kill Courser or Caryatid (as they have 4 and 5 toughness) or your Garruk Relentless (as each only has 2 power) and he can flip to begin tutoring :)

Works well if the opponent has no creatures or one no killable by Garruk Relentless.

Hey all...quick question...is Magus of the Moon better here than Blood Moon? Both Oath of Nissa and Garruk, Caller of Beasts can "dig/tutor" for Magus of the Moon....but it is so darn killable that I'm not sure...would love everyone's input.

Hey Scorprix!!! Yeah. We were gone for quite a while. Lots of health stuff for our parents (father ended up passing, mom is getting better); but we hopefully can start posting again somewhat regularly. Hope all has been well with you!

Updated the deck..put Cloudstone Curio in the main (and added a description of the Combo and interactions with Curio). Removed Reverent Hunter to make space for it.

September 18, 2017 6:55 p.m.

Good call. You're probably right in just moving Cloudstone Curio to the main (at least as a 1-of). It is nice on occasion to just go "oops I win" with the combo; and you are absolutely right that all the ETB effecta synergize extremely well.

I'll begin testing with it main and then move it main.

Pheardemons...

I apologize....Cloudstone Curio is in the board. For whatever reason when I posted the deck I only had 14 of the -5 board cards in.

It allows the deck to have an infinite combo (as you can bounce the Garruk's to generate infinite mana)...and also just has good synergy with all of the ETB cards in the deck.

There is a possibility it ends up in the main deck; but I don't know if it's entirely necessary in every game (just the grindy ones and infinite life ones).

Zendikar Resurgent is a cool idea! May be a little "win-more" but I'll try it out and test it a bit.

Primal Surge is a fun idea :). It's not a permanent; but everything else is. I'll test it as well

Thank you so much for your comments!

And yes...I know it is 61 cards...I've just found it plays better with 21 lands and 61 total (vs. 20 and 60 or 21 and 60).
