If you ever need more sac outlets, you should check out Blasting Station. It works great in synergy with Atla Palani, Nest Tender

Optimator on Giant's Deck

As for potential alternate commanders, here are what I would recommend. My goal here isn't to necessarily power up your deck, but that would likely happen if you choose someone other than Brion. The addition of other colors can add versatility as well as variety--potentially leading to more fun. I feel like being able to play any giant (or at least more giants) would make for a truer giant-tribal experience and allow the deck to grow better as new sets and new giants come out. Also, when you're on a budget the addition to other colors will allow you to play better creatures and better utility without having to scrape the bottom of the barrel in Boros colors.

Five-Color Commanders:

Going for all five colors would allow you to play any giant across Magic's rich history and allow any utility card you could possibly want. This would be the best choice as you continue to play, as any upgrades or new giants could fit in the deck. Don't be intimidated by the mana base; five-color is easy on a budget.

Morophon, the Boundless - It's a giant! Technically. The anthem is cute and the mana discount is enormous. One of the best options for Giant Tribal. I have one for trade!! Highly highly highly recommended

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim - Truly obscene power. He ramps when you cast him (making his commander tax kind of one mana instead of two!) and his ability to play three cards off the top of the deck is nothing short of perfect for a mana-expensive deck like Giant Tribal. Cannot recommend enough.

Kenrith, the Returned King - Another incredibly strong choice. He can give you trample and haste--both things big slow giants want. He can grow your team, he can draw cards, and he can bring back the expensive giants from the graveyard. The lifegain can be good too! A top-tier choice.

Jodah, Archmage Eternal and Jegantha, the Wellspring are passable but are completely outclassed by the three mentioned. Jegantha is a giant elk for what it's worth.

Naya Commanders

The addition of alone would both power up the deck and make it run smoother without having to invest in expensive cards. There are a bunch of great Giants in green on a budget and it seems that WotC is making more and more Green giants in modern times, compared to the old days, making it a safe choice when it comes to future additions.

Mayael the Anima - A fantastic and strong choice. Naya colors and a strong mana-sink for when your hand is empty. Having expensive giants is perfect for her ability! A top-notch choice. Highly recommended. Mayael's Aria is a fun card!

Atla Palani, Nest Tender - Hatch giants out of eggs! A really great way to cheat on mana costs. A pretty good choice and a funny one. I have one for trade.

Samut, Voice of Dissent - Granting haste to your team and being able to surprise-untap a giant to block an attack is pretty good utility. A good--but not excellent--choice.

Marisi, Breaker of the Coil - A decent choice. Goading opponents' creatures would allow your own giants to swing in with impunity. I have one for trade.

Gahiji, Honored One - An all-right choice. The ability powers up our team and incentivizes your opponents to attack each other. It's a giant beast, for what it's worth.

Four-Color Commanders:

I'm not sure why one would want to run four colors when one could easily run all five, but there are two very interesting choices for generals in the Blue-less combination. Personally I find the Blue giants better than the Black giants though. None of the options for Black-less are any good for Giant Tribal.

Saskia the Unyielding - Her ability is no joke when it comes to smashing face. A good choice, but we can probably do better.

Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper - Now THIS is an interesting commander combo. Make a sort of loose lifegain theme around Giant Tribal. If you want to have a truly unique take on Giant Tribal that nobody has ever seen, this may be the way. I have Ikra Shidiqi for trade, but not Bruse.


Oloro, Ageless Ascetic and Ruhan of the Fomori can be commanders, but I think they won't be very good for Giant Tribal


I would highly recommend running Morophon, the Boundless or Mayael the Anima as your general, with Golos, Tireless Pilgrim and Kenrith, the Returned King being equally as good--if not better (mechanically). You'll get to play more giants, better giants, and ramp into them easier--all while still staying on a budget. Also, these commanders actually facilitate giant tribal and a concept.

I'm really intrigued with the Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper too.

I would argue it homogenizes rather than diversifies--it's just another copy of Mana Crypt to some strategies, and a serious barrier to entry for many people. and I would also argue that two, even three-color decks could seriously consider running the Lotus (I'm speaking from perhaps a more casual standpoint). Here's the playpattern, the example being my Atla Palani, Nest Tender deck: T1--Mountain, suspend Greater Gargadon, pass. T2--Plains, Jeweled Lotus, crack it for Green, tap out and cast my commander. T3--Forest, activate my commander for an egg, cast Worldly Tutor for an Avacyn, Angel of Hope or something equally scary, sac the egg, and put her into play... and I'll remind you again, on turn three. And that's THREE color. AND I NEED TO PAY HOW MUCH MONEY TO DO THAT AGAIN??

Trample enablers:

These two are good bombs... Aggressive Mammoth Thunderfoot Baloth

These cards are just valuable cheap trample enablers... Primal Rage, Ferocity of the Wilds, Archetype of Aggression, Khenra Charioteer

Garruk's Uprising is a good draw source when you populate 5/5 dragon tokens.

Brawn is a good creature to sacrifice early. It is more annoying for your opponents to deal with. The effect works from the graveyard, and draws out graveyard removal.

Additional Suggestions:

Also, there's an interaction with Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero + Mirror Entity + Atla Palani, Nest Tender that might interest you.

Reinforcements is a card that acts the same as Congregation at Dawn but in the late game, after board wipes and spot removal.

Also consider Kogla, the Titan Ape as he is opponent creature removal, artifact and enchantment removal, and can protect Atla Palani, Nest Tender from removal and board wipes with his last ability.

AEther Flash will kill all your eggs instantly, and make sure your opponents are punished for Avenger of Zendikar, tokens, weenies, etc.

Both Scapegoat and Fanatical Devotion are extremely valuable sacrifice outlets which can save select creatures from removal and board wipes.

I saw a game once where an Atla Palani, Nest Tender deck won on like turn three from using a Mutagenic Growth on Atla and then activating Mirror Entity for 0 an arbitrary number of times cycling through their deck getting infinite ETB triggers on Purphoros, God of the Forge. They had the legal Shuffle Eldrazi in there to keep shuffle the graveyard back in. It was fun to watch but probably wouldn't be consistent enough.
