FrantaFire on Before the Mending: Brudiclad EDH

Thanks for taking the time to look at my list.

I've heavily debated on Desolation Twin for a long time but the fact that it says cast is the main stay-away. A majority of the time, I'll polymorph into a big creature; never cast it. With that, I've even more heavily considered Idol of Oblivion for the big tokens we crave.

As for Phyrexian Processor , I could simply never find a balance for the amount of life to pay.

Your deck will be a bit slow to start up because you're running 3-4 CmC ramp so if you wanted to speed up the deck start replacing Explosive Vegetation and Vastwood Surge with Rampant Growth , Into the North , Farseek , Nature's Lore , or Three Visits .

You also aren't running many draw spells which is concerning. since you're going stompy I highly suggest the draw spells that care about power like Rishkar's Expertise , Return of the Wildspeaker , Garruk, Primal Hunter , Life's Legacy , Greater Good , Momentous Fall , etc.

Of your whole list of creatures i would only consider cutting 2: Desolation Twin and Essence Depleter . Twin only get's you a token if cast so it doesn't play nice with the cheaty effects and Depleter isn't a needed combo piece if you have access to Dimensional Infiltrator .

Apollo_Paladin on This Deck Needs a Name ... help

The same thing goes for Desolation Twin too as it were. If you force him into play using Dread Return or Apprentice Necromancer then his ability does not go off since he himself was not Cast.

If cloning's your game, then I have a (few) name(s)!

So if cloning is your go to, I'd suggest things that can allow you do go big, quickly. If you are absolutely deadset on Sultai, I understand, but possibly choose Temur? With cards like Riku of Two Reflections?

Another option would be Naya, with Ghired, Conclave Exile?

Some good ideas could be: Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Kindred Charge, Desolation Twin, Giant Adephage, Phyrexian Processor. The new Scute Swarm and Skyclave Relic, and some artifact Shenanigans with Mechanized Production.

Some good, generic populate cards like Druid's Deliverance, Ghired's Belligerence, Second Harvest and of course, Trostani, Selesnya's Voice.

Hope these few Ideas help you out!

RedBullMan2 on Brudicled, the artifact creator

thanks for commeting dude. I have thought about all cards except Blade of Selves which i might just put in the deck but i am not sure if it works with brudiclad's ability (to make the tokens from the blade and then transform them to other kind of tokens). I dont really like Desolation Twin becasue its really expensive and it doesnt have something special like trample or something . Sublime Epiphany i used to have it in the deck but every time it was in my hand it was just sitting there waiting for me to play it but i never did cause i usually had better things to do like put one creature and copy it with a cheaper spell. I know the deck needs more counterspells and i could use it for that but personally i dont like it. Now for Saheeli's Artistry i like it but i again i prefer something cheap but if i could remove something from the deck i would put it but Mystical Tutor is kinda better because i will just bring a 3 mana copy = 4 mana not 6. Ok yes i lose i more copy but i pref to have this 2 bonus mana just for something else, maybe to activate an artifact's ability or for something else in my hand. Btw if someone knows the intercatios between Blade of Selves and brudiclad please let me know.
