Braids, Conjurer Adept Discussion

Constricting Summoner's Portal
: Put target creature from your hand onto the battlefield, where X is equal to the number of permanents in play you control.
"The portal is contracting! Quickly, summon anything!" shouted Braids, the conjuror adept. Moments later, a squirrel shot out of the portal.
So at a first glance, this seems like a free put-into-play any creature from your hand. However, when you realize that you'll probably have 4 lands in play when you cast this, and then this thing is a permanent too, you'll need to pay at least 5 mana to cast any creature from your hand. More, if you've been playing anything else this game--mana rocks, other enchantments, creatures, sagas... But I think this could be good, and it encourages you to sacrifice your own permanents, possibly taking you into black or green. Braids, Conjurer Adept seemed like a great thematic inclusion in the text too.
New challenge: create a creature that gets smaller/weaker/less useful as the game runs late, but is not overpowered on the turn it that it enters play.

about death by karona, absolutely it happens if you aren't careful lol. i usually only play karona if i'm basically doing nothing in the game, or have a way to make her not attack me.
as for the extreme group hug and letting people cheat things out ( Braids, Conjurer Adept , Boldwyr Heavyweights , Hunted Wumpus , etc.) i think those could be a lot of fun and bring a bunch of chaos to the table. with this list, though, i kinda like the game going a bit slower and not exploding things too much. however, it would definitely be worth a try if you were planning on building a version of this deck yourself. i'd also recommend trying out the global ramp cards ( Mana Flare , Heartbeat of Spring , Dictate of Karametra etc.) if you were going that route

Farycane interesting! I preemptively made the choice of excluding Thieves' Auction as well as Grip of Chaos precisely because i figured the salt would be real! So what i did was opted for a lot of group hug cards like Rites of Flourishing and Braids, Conjurer Adept to not only make other people not want to attack me, but its pseudo chaotic because its like "o shit! Whos gonna go off more?". Admittedly, i still have yet to win a game, and since my friends have a much lower budget then me so their decks arent super competitive, i could probably get away with it more then other EDH players. Nonetheless i still havent won, but its fun as hell.

This is a sweet idea, and a very unique deck. I don't know much about group hug decks, and I don't know how much EDHREC will help, since the recommendations for the theme will be more geared towards non-red decks, but I can tell you that the one thing you're lacking is a solid end game. The strength of group hug decks is that the hugging isn't really symmetrical. When everyone gets resources from Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis , your deck is better built to utilize the cards and mana. When everyone gets to Show and Tell with Braids, Conjurer Adept , your deck is built top-heavy. If the goal with Alesha group hug is to control the board's big threats, you need to make sure that you have a way to utilize all the minor threats that you build up. I don't think Siege-Gang Commander is going to do it. You could look up combos, such as a way to infinitely recur your Gray Merchant of Asphodel or something with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , get tribal and rely on a massive Coat of Arms or Shared Animosity , or you could find a late-game way to leverage your graveyard or the board state, such as Immortal Servitude or Insurrection . Anyway, happy deck building!
