Fertilid is good with the counters but is too slow whenever I run it. I think you should run something like Blossoming Defense over Kaya's Ghostform, Kaya's Ghostform will make it drop all the enchantments that are on it. Mask of Avacyn can be another card in a similar role. The Ozolith seems so good in this deck that I would think about adding some equipment in and maybe a few other artifacts to try and get Inventors' Fair to work. Sarulf, Realm Eater may be a board wipe that will synergize, though a bit finnicky. Obsessive Skinner seems too difficult to get working early with little pay off if it does, Evolutionary Escalation may fit well into that deck, making counters, and friends, early and often. Mighty Emergence can probably do some work as the game goes on, Necropolis Regent seems like the perfect curve topper, Retribution of the Ancients might be a good removal engine. I do think that trample is the most important keyword early, so Ring of Kalonia is a good choice, Dragon Fangs or Vorrac Battlehorns may be good additions as well.

Mask of Avacyn is another good option for protection.

Shake off fleas! Chandra's Ignition (deathtouch all but your boss)

Flaming Sword, Fire Whip (both great with deathtouch)

Demonspine Whip, Ring of Valkas

Fists of the Demigod is only half effective with your monochrome bosses. I think you are REALLY vulnerable to even minor amounts of creature removal now. Mask of Avacyn and Mirror Shield are cheap.

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.

I would cut:

Sensei's Divining Top: Good card but it doesn't ramp you or generate card advantage. You don't need top deck manipulation.

Mask of Avacyn: Either remove or replace with Swiftfoot Boots. It's just too much mana to equip.

Linvala, Keeper of Silence: Good stax card but unless your meta gives you problems with activated abilities that specifically stop your commander it should be cut.

Cards you may consider to swap out for others:

Catastrophe: You only have one mass land destruction. This is a good back up and modal. I would swap it out for End Hostilities.

Ghostly Prison: You don't have much protection outside of board wipes. If your meta has too many go-wides or aggro decks this is worth considering. I would swap for one of your 3 mana ramp cards since this should buy you time to ramp to your commander if you do slot it in.

It depends on your meta of course, but watch out for the Eldrazi titans that reshuffle the deck back in. For that use Trickbind or if you can Disallow. A cheaper alternative is Whirlwind Denial.

Folio of Fancies might be a good addition to the deck. It sits around 55 cents. It would help with draw and mill.

Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves might also be good at protecting the commander, because it will probably be a lightning rod for removal. Since he just sits there, Mask of Avacyn or Ring of Evos Isle could work as well.

Optimator on Mizzix the Sorceror

I have a Mizzix deck that I adore. Tall Mizzix'd Cocktail With A Sidecar. Most people know the deck is very commander-centric so you will see her removed A LOT.

I would highly recommend Darksteel Plate, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, and maybe things like Mirror Shield, Alexi's Cloak, Whispersilk Cloak, Mask of Avacyn, Hammer of Nazahn, Diplomatic Immunity, etc. The auras have the normal aura problems but at least Alexi's Cloak can surprise someone and act like a counterspell. Counterspells can keep Mizzix sfe too but I find I often tap out to cast spells so your mileage may vary. It all depends on your budget.

Shark Typhoon and Metallurgic Summonings are good in a Mizzix deck.
