Swebb87 on rin and seri, inseparable equipped …

Rin and Seri, Inseparable equipped with Illusionist's Bracers with a Chandra's Incinerator on the battlefield. If I activate the Rin and Seri, Inseparable with the bracers equipped, will Chandra's Incinerator trigger twice if I target a player with both activations? Meaning in total I would get 4 lots of damage, two from the Cat/Dog and two from the incinerator??

Some suggestions:

Depending on how long Kamahl is out, you might consider cards like Heartstone and Illusionist's Bracers.

Also, maybe replace some of your ramp with stuff like Market Festival, Wild Growth, etc. This would not only lower your curve a little and speed up your deck, but you could also get some more mileage out of my other suggestions: enchantresses. Argothian Enchantress, Mesa Enchantress, Eidolon of Blossoms, etc. These would allow you to draw a steady stream of cards.

And finally, some protection would be good so that you don't fuck yourself by getting all your lands killed -- Heroic Intervention, Eerie Interlude, and the like. Or, even better, add in my favorite two cards in white -- Faith's Reward and Second Sunrise.

Yes there are a lot of counterspells Bobs_Army. I removed Confirm Suspicions and replaced it with Illusionist's Bracers. Next step I believe is to put in Aphetto Alchemist to combo with the bracers and Azami, Lady of Scrolls.

Thanks for the suggestions, carpecanum!

I'll definitely consider Illusionist's Bracers and Selvala's Stampede. Both look super cool!

I mention Mayael's Aria only because of nostalgia, I'm not particularly interested in trying to use it as a win-con. I know of cards like Mossbridge Troll that could work to win that way, but the first two modes (+1/+1 counters and gaining life) don't seem that impactful.

Shield of the Oversoul could be interesting, but I'd prefer effects like that on creatures with power 5 or greater. For example, I'm considering Spearbreaker Behemoth.

The creatures you mention are big, but I want my creatures to do more than just that. Especially without trample or evasion already tacked on, Primeval Protector and Gigantosaurus are not that exciting. I could see myself using Nessian Boar, though, since it can clear the way for other attackers.

Thanks for your thoughts :)

Optimator on Giant's Deck

Even though you are primarily Giant-Tribal, you may still want to have a small suite of "Brion" cards.

I have a Feldon of the Third Path and Mimic Vat, both of which are extremely good in Brion decks. I also have a Adarkar Valkyrie, which can be good too.

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.

That said, I have Whispersilk Cloak and Mask of Avacyn in my collection.

Another option on a budget is Mirror Shield. Darksteel Plate is pricey but fantastic when you want to stick a huge beater and keep it around.

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!

I own: Hijack - Grab the Reins - Mass Mutiny - Traitorous Blood - Traitorous Instinct - Portent of Betrayal - Word of Seizing - Harness by Force

There are many more.


Illusionist's Bracers is very good with Brion, even with less of a focus on him. Probably worth keeping in.

I think Minion Reflector won't be good--too expensive. Seance is decent but probably won't be reliable often enough to make it worth a slot.

FrogBoy95 on Atla's flight hatchery

Love the Angel sub-theme. Couple cards you could add for egg-removal are Thornbite Staff and Blasting Station. Thornbite goes infinite with Atla and Ashnod's Altar, letting you pay 2 to make an egg, sac it, untap Atla with the staff, and use the 2 from the altar to rinse and repeat.

Another good card is Illusionist's Bracers since it kind of acts as a cheap token doubler with her ability.
