Bloodrage Brawler Discussion

Nice deck. If you’re running Bloodrage Brawler, perhaps Rotting Regisaur is a possible card to consider? The constant discard can sometimes be problematic, but it’s a huge body and if your deck is looking to discard a lot, then maybe it’s worth considering. I’m not sure about your budget, but if you’re willing to stretch then Grim Flayer also seems strong. It’s a low drop aggressive creature that will help fill your graveyard pretty quickly, although if you’re looking to go all in on discard perhaps might not fit as well. Finally, Key to the City is my personal favourite card for discard decks, being able to get through your big creatures to end games is always good value. Hope this is helpful.

Sweet brew. Personally, I'd cut Kragma Warcaller, as it's a bit overcosted IMO, maybe in favor of another two Bloodrage Brawlers. Yes, it's significant card disadvantage, which pretty much relegates it to situational applications in extremely low-to-the-ground aggro decks, but it synergizes with Neheb, the Worthy, which is, functionally, a less expensive Warcaller when active. In addition, I'd shave off a few copies of both Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion and Neheb, the Worthy; it's never good to draw a dead copy of a legendary creature as the game progresses. It's not necessarily a bad idea to replace them with some efficient card-draw like Night's Whisper, as well as removal, a suggestion also made by Balaam__

Have you thought about making this deck mono-red? It may be a little more consistent with the rest of your aggressive threats. Bomat Courier is pretty good as it allows to get big discard and draw turns in allowing you to fuel your ox reanimation and the rest of your deck. Hazoret's Monument is good too as in mono-red, or nearly mono-red you get discounted spell and a lot of filtering. Bloodrage Brawler is an aggressive typed creature that discards.

What about Bloodrage Brawler instead of incorrigible youths? Or maybe splitting them?

This is now the 3rd revision. In this revision I removed Olivia's Dragoon , Succumb to Temptation , Murderous Compulsion , Abundant Maw , Fiery Temper , Pale Rider of Trostad , Stromkirk Condemned , Vampire Cutthroat , Bloodrage Brawler , Call the Bloodline , Sanguinary Mage , Furyblade Vampire .
Instead more powerful vampires were added as well as cards that were cheaper with a draw mechanic.

What about Bloodrage Brawler ? I could see t1 guide into t2 brawler discarding bloodghast and t3 Judith which the land would bring bloodghast back.

To begin with, this is probably the most creative deck I have ever seen. That being said, I playtested it and see some minor problems. I will cover all of the problems I see with it, then cover all of the solutions. I really like the concept of this deck, and I want to see it work in an actual game. Problems: This deck isn't going to win from dealing damage, not even close. Therefore, Eidolon of the Great Revel really isn't going to anything what so ever. He is just 2/2 for , and serves no real purpose. The same goes for Dimir House Guard . Like, yes ok, he can regenerate, but there aren't many creatures here to sacrifice. Additionally, I played this deck several times, and not once did I see Vampiric Link be of any use. The most life per attack you can get with it is 2, and most likely your creature dies from it. I just think there could be better cards. Improvements:
During the beginning of the game, you are very vulnerable. You need some smaller creatures such as Typhoid Rats . They can be played turn one and can effectively block almost any creature. Replace Vampiric Link with these, it will help so, so much.
As I said above, Eidolon of the Great Revel is just wasting space, and if you wanted to keep the same converted mana cost, might I suggest Battlefield Scavenger (for cycling faster), Bloodrage Brawler (for an actual blocker), Figure of Destiny , or many more, just not Eidolon.
Dimir could go either way, especially if you make these other changes, so you can sacrifice creatures easier.
Again, overall I love this concept and want to see this work. Please consider the above, and thanks!
