Emry’s Artifacts | Historic Brawl Deck

Why play this deck?

  • It is powerful, versatile, consistent, and relentless.
  • Emry, Lurker of the Loch provides ridiculous card advantage that enables aggressive openings while also being able to grind down any deck in the long game.
  • A toolbox of artifacts provide answers for any situation and can be recurred repeatedly to lock opponents out.
  • The deck rarely has to mulligan (not enough lands, no play ables, etc.) and can mulligan for specific answers.
  • You never run out of things to do. Emry, Lurker of the Loch can be recast almost indefinitely so you are never cut off from spells.

How do you play the deck?

  • The deck is tempo oriented and looks to disrupt the opponent early on while also building a board presence. Prioritize playing Emry, Lurker of the Loch as early as possible and recasting her whenever she is removed.
  • The priorities during a game are:
    1. Establish any board presence
    2. Disrupt the opponent as much as possible
    3. Expand your board presence
    4. Ramp
    5. Draw cards
  • Getting any creatures on board early is important. They can be made larger in many ways or infinitely chump block. Board wipes are not really a concern since rebuilding is easy.
  • Hitting land drops is extremely important. The deck wants to use all available mana every turn in order to be as fast as possible.
  • Removal is limited; use it wisely. Trade creatures whenever possible.

Standout Creatures

Standout Artifacts

  • Crucible of Worlds lets you play lands put in the graveyard by Emry's enter the battlefield trigger. Enables recursion of lands with sacrifice abilities.
  • Forsaken Monument gains life, ramps, and boosts creatures.
  • Witch's Oven and Bubbling Cauldron let you sacrifice creatures after declaring blockers for added chump block value.
  • Key to the City can force creatures through cluttered board states and also filter cards.
  • Treasure Map   generates artifacts and produces card advantage.

The Toolbox



  • Ugin, the Spirit Dragon is even more back breaking than usual since his -x ability only hits coloured permanents.
