Darksteel Plate Discussion

Just keep in mind That if you put Sword of War and Peace on your commander that all of your colored enchantments will fall off. I get it if it's your only sword of, but really it's the worst possible one for this deck. Honestly it's probably still worth running but if you can I'd go in for Sword of Feast and Famine . Also you might want to consider Darksteel Plate if you're running worldslayer, that or Avacyn, Angel of Hope so you don't lose tempo. I know i don't have much budget suggestions, but that's not a bad thing, it means that you've pretty much got all the elements you need for it to be decent and now you just need the high dollar cards to make the deck go next level. On that note Teferi's Protection for your sunforger package, as well as Unbreakable Formation . Embercleave could do some work for you and will soon see a huge price drop. Then just tutors Steelshaper's Gift and Enlightened Tutor .
Again, not trying to be negative on your build. I know essentially nothing i mentioned is affordable, but it's going to be the top end cards that you should consider to get you to the highest level. If you want i could do a deep dive for ya, just let me know

If you were to enchant Chromatic Lantern with Curator's Ward, only the lantern will have hexproof. Curator's Ward only provides hexproof to the permanent it is enchanted on. If the Curator's Ward is removed, your Chromatic Lantern will no longer have hexproof as the enchantment giving it hexproof is no longer enchanting it.
If Curator's Ward also had hexproof, it would say so on a separate line. To better illustrate, Darksteel Plate itself has indestructible and gives the equipped creature indestructible. Notice how the two effects are on separate lines. Since that is not the case, Curator's Ward only provides hexproof to whatever it is enchanting.
Hexproof only protects something from being targeted. An effect needs to explicitly have the word "target" in its rules text in order for hexproof to protect against it. Hexproof will protect against a Naturalize but not against a Shatterstorm.
702.11b “Hexproof” on a permanent means “This permanent can’t be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control.”

Even though you are primarily Giant-Tribal, you may still want to have a small suite of "Brion" cards.
Gift of Immortality is extremely good with Brion. I don't have one though.
Sigil of the New Dawn isn't the most efficient, but can be good.
I have a Serra Avatar too, which is the best Fling-able creature around. Evra, Halcyon Witness is great too, but I don't have one. It's cheap though. A Stalking Vengeance would double up Brion's damage, but I don't think I have one either. Reya Dawnbringer is way mana-expensive but can be useful with such pricey giants dying left and right.
Flameshadow Conjuring can be good with Brion too. I don't think I have one though.
Phyrexian Processor is one of the craziest pieces of Brion tech around. It's not too expensive--I would totally slide this card in, even if I was doing Giant Tribal. You can get blown out, but the payoff is enormous.
Another piece of Brion tech is Grafted Exoskeleton, if you wanna be dirty.
Since Brion isn't the center of the strategy, protecting him isn't at such a premium. Cards like Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves are still good for protecting your big giants though. It may be worth sliding some cards like that in, but since it's a casual deck you may get away with none.
I have a Cradle of Vitality on-hand. Might be really good!
If you have any more Threaten-effects, those are functionally creature removal with your commander out. Perhaps a couple of cards like that deserve a slot. Captivating Crew is fun because it's repeatable. Song-Mad Treachery Flip is cool because it's a land too!
There are many more.
Illusionist's Bracers is very good with Brion, even with less of a focus on him. Probably worth keeping in.

Flickerform is good as a way to blink your creatures to get enter-the-battlefield effects. I don't think it's that great for protecting creatures, I think equipment like Commander's Plate (particularly on Rograhk since red doesn't do creature removal particularly well) and Darksteel Plate or even stuff like Swiftfoot Boots do a much better job at protection than Flickerform. Copy effects like Fork are never bad, I don't think it's a bad investment.

nice take on Wyleth, it looks a bit like the precon, and I would recommend taking out seraphic greatsword for Darksteel Plate

Hi there, fellow Syr Carah player! I had a great time tinkering with this deck since it so difficult to make a well oiled machine of a commander deck with mono red that isn't goblins, but also I had a lot of problems with losing momentum when Syr Carah got removed or just being flat out top decking and I actually managed to fix a lot of those problems with some neat enchantments and artifacts that will even make you keep all of your friends!
For card advantage I run a Ghirapur Orrery and it is the greatest thing ever, it makes you able to ramp and draw card when you are out of them which happens fast since the majority of your deck runs cmc 2 spells. Also I play about 37 lands in my deck with some land value engines, Flame Jab and Tectonic Reformation are awsome for that end in Syr Carah!
And you might not want to play too much storm, but I do play an Ignite Memories for the lulz and it is so much fun to play with a Possibility Storm . If you have one and you don't know where to play it... this is the deck.
I also like to play some grave retrieval aswell so when I am in topdeck mode. There is not a whole lot of stuff to retrieve anything that aren't instants, sorceries and artifacts with so I have a copy of Underworld Breach and also Past in Flames , since you can cast it in the late game from the graveyard, even if you had it miss on one of your exiles.
Good luck homie, may your opponents be extra crispy!
