Hi there,

I don't think Battlemage's Bracers and Rings of Brighthearth work with Delina because she has a triggered ability not an activated ability.

I quite like the idea of stealing stuff with Molten Primordial and sacrificing them to Tooth and Claw . But it is kinda unfortunate that the stolen creatures can't attack (when copying the Primordial with Delina). Goblin Bombardment and Spawning Pit might be a good inclusion if you wanna lean more into that.

I also like Bloodthirsty Blade and Shiny Impetus to create safe attack opportunities. Disrupt Decorum might fit here too (as it is being reprinted in the AFR Commander Decks).

Ok, a forced combat deck in WB? Awesome!

There are three cards with Goad you can include: Bloodthirsty Blade , Martial Impetus , Parasitic Impetus

Then, there are multiple useful Propaganda -like effects:

Ghostly Prison , Sphere of Safety

Marchesa's Decree , Revenge of Ravens , Hissing Miasma , Blood Reckoning , Search the Premises ,

These are cards that give bonuses for attacking one player in particular: Curse of the Forsaken , Curse of Shallow Graves

Orzhov Advokist is similar to Breena.

Finally, Crown of Doom is pretty cool for a little game of hot potatoe.

Shiny Impetus & Bloodthirsty Blade can replace or at least complement the Vows; opponents might see them as a bit heavy-handed tho

Kinda high MV but Rite of the Raging Storm

Deck looks fun and good so far! I like it. I have a comment to start. Tahngarth's ability works similarly to Kaalia of the Vast in the sense that there is no attack trigger, so for things like Bear Umbra the ability does not trigger when you give him to other players to attack, so it's really only useful on other creatures.

Interestingly enough, even if you kept him on an opponent's field for a full turn cycle, this actually is bad! Since they control Tahngarth, they will get the benefit, due to the card's wording. You only control the things attached to Tahngarth, so since Bear Umbra gives the ability to Tahngarth's text, the opponent would get to untap lands.

All this ^^^ was more just of interest rather than general advice.

Moving on, in your OTHER category. You have a LOT of incentives to get people to not attack you, too many in fact. I'll tell you which ones I think are best, but it's up to your personal preference which ones to cut. I think the Curse of Predation , Curse of Disturbance , Bloodthirsty Blade , Frenzied Saddlebrute , Disrupt Decorum , Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor , Shiny Impetus , Xantcha, Sleeper Agent , and Goblin Spymaster are the best personally, as they are the most effective at goading.

I have already explained Bear Umbra , and the same goes for Sword of the Animist , since there aren't attack triggers. I think that Banshee's Blade is not good compared to your other cards.

I think Dimir House Guard is really not that great, and you have enough other tutors to get Tahngarth.

Cunning Rhetoric is a fabulous card for this deck (also in general, holy moly I'm glad I know about this card now). Your monarch cards might not be that great to have, but I think it's worth play-testing. I think it might make it hard for you, since you can't attack a person who is the monarch for fear that they will attack you, although this can be counteracted through goad cards.

Otherwise, I think this deck is pretty cool, and I approve of it.

Some artifacts in monored, that can be reasonably tutored with Goblin Engineer :

Liquimetal Coating : Combine with artifact removal, maybe Viashino Heretic , Goblin Tinkerer , Hellkite Tyrant and so on

Chaos Wand : let fate decide

Mycosynth Lattice : it's Liquimetal Coating Maxi

FormOverFunction I believe I saw adding Artificer's Hex to Bloodthirsty Blade , which is hilarious :D

seshiro_of_the_orochi Thank you for the complement. I am still in the planning stages of the deck. I have yet to go out and buy any of the cards (mostly because I just bought a house). Assault Suit was considered, however I would have to suit up one of my creatures and give it away. If I could suit up an opponents' creature like I can with Bloodthirsty Blade , than it would be an auto include, but sadly Wizards won't let me equip cards to my opponents' creatures. I really considered Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire for the deck as I could use Varragoth to attack open opponents and tutor up with I need or have someone else do search for answers we need, but I feel I would never get to use Varragoth for people would remove Varragoth instantly. Single target removal has been increasing lately and Varragoth is a prime target.

YourNeighborhoodGhost Thank you for the suggestions. I couldn't remember or find the Tempt with Vengeance or Rite of the Raging Storm cards, but I knew they existed. I want to add Massacre Wurm to the deck. Tombstone Stairwell would be a nice gift card, but the cumulative upkeep is turning me off of it. Awaken the Erstwhile would make me discard, and I hate to lose my resources. I could play it when I have no hand or cards I don't need, but that's too situational. I see no point in running Deathbringer Thoctar in this deck. Yes it will get massive fast, and can ping by ditching a counter, but by the time I can actually do massive damage with it, the game should be over by then. Six mana is a lot for a 3/3 body for this deck.

Hey, well done on a budget.

Athreos and Plaguecrafter are good, but I don't think the rest of the aristocrat strategy is doing enough. Consider cutting most of it for more pillowfort and hatebears?

An advantage of having more flying hatebears is they can more easily get you back the monarch if an opponent gains control of it.

There's some budget manabase upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.
