Whenever a nontoken creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may pay (2). If you do, put a token into play that's a copy of that creature. That token has haste and "At end of turn, sacrifice this permanent."

Minion Reflector Discussion

Hey boydb thanks for the suggestions!
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.
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.

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

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

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.
