um_fido on Triggers can't catch these moves

6 days ago

Hey boydb thanks for the suggestions!

That Planebound Accomplice would be really sweet with this three ladies Chandra, Acolyte of Flame , Chandra, Flamecaller and Saheeli Rai , i'll add them to the maybeboard to test.

About Heat Shimmer and Minion Reflector , at first i thought they would work, since the text was updated in Gatherer, but i think you're right, that "AND" is the problem and sadly the tokens will go away at the end of my opponents next turn.

Oh boy, i was searching for cards to build an Obeka copy instant/sorcery and that Aria of Flame fits like a glove, really nice.

If some time in the future your brain tells you "Hey, what if Obeka with DRAGONS?" slap in this expensive badboy Zirilan of the Claw , pour a cup of a Thousand-Year Elixir and you're good to go!

By the way, that explanation about the triggers that you added to your Myriad Obeka descripton will probably help some people, well done :)

Hey, nice deck list! I like the copy mechanic. I added a few of these cards to my wishlist.

I'm still learning about which triggers can be disabled with Obeka and I found a couple cards on yours that aren't delayed triggers. Heat Shimmer and Minion Reflector specifically. Those are actually abilities that the card acquires, so those will trigger each time the condition is met. Take a look at Kindred Charge . The text for "Exile them..." does not go on the card itself while heat shimmer places the ability directly on the copy token.

The way I think we can tell is if it says "they gain haste and eot trigger" versus "they gain haste. EOT trigger". The period stops the token from gaining the trigger as an ability.

Check out this gem Planebound Accomplice . Now you've got walker's to abuse! Also Aria of Flame and deny the life gain, Obeka the spell slinger! She is a wizard afterall.

Hi Moby, thanks for the feedback. Lots of cool suggestions as always. :)

I really should put Introduction to Annihilation in but to be honest I hadn't realised that I still had Spine of Ish Sah in the deck.

You're not wrong about evasion vs. anthems but I want some anthems so Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger is a two hit kill. I agree Obelisk of Urd is not a great fit as it doesn't add much beyond being an anthem and should be replaced by Akroma's Memorial which was previously too expensive but has been reprinted recently and I'll pick one on my next order. Phyrexian Splicer is also interesting looks to be a deceptively powerful one that I'll consider.

Whereas most of the other anthems do more Forsaken Monument is a mana doubler, Vanquisher's Banner and The Immortal Sun are card draw, and Adaptive Automaton is an early body which Eldrazi kind of lack.

I feel the monument cycle don't add enough outside of monocolour and granting trample is a little too conditional in this deck with less than 30 creatures.

You mentioned it in your comments but one of the most powerful things about Eldrazi are the big cast triggers hence why Lithoform Engine and Strionic Resonator are in instead of card like Helm of the Host and Minion Reflector .

P.S. I posted this deck in the discord because Ben ultimated Jace, Architect of Thought while playing on spelltable and wanted to search my deck.

Other considerations: Minion Reflector and Helm of the Host gives hasty copies (albeit without cast triggers)

Phyrexian Splicer to switch abilities between creatures

Rhonas's Monument to give things trample.

I'm also surprised that your favourite Akroma's Memorial isn't in there!

Looks neat. Thoughts on these? Goblin Engineer (finds Cloudstone Curio), Bottled Cloister , Priest of Urabrask , Minion Reflector , Kyren Negotiations , Vigilante Justice , Worldgorger Dragon (infinite mana / re-entry of all your creatures when paired with something like Flameshadow Conjuring), Cauldron of Souls

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.
