My Current EDH Decks: Rhys the Redeemed Token Elves | Wort, Boggart Auntie R/B Goblins | Brion Stoutarm | Rakdos, Lord of Riots | Tajic, Weapon with Mass Destruction | Jor-Kadeen the Prevailer | Melek, Izzet Paragon | Heliod Enchantments | Prossh Tokens and Sac | Captain Sisay Legendary Toolbox Beatdown | Marath Beast Tribal | Marath Token Combos | Horde of Notions Elemental Tribal | Zirilian Mono Red Dragon Tribal

Yes... I have 14 built decks used regularly, including 3 Boros Colored Decks. Don't judge me. =P

Thousand-Year Elixir, Puppet Strings and Illusionist's Bracers (from Gatecrash) would be good for Mr. Stoutarm.  I see you're unsure about Hamletback Goliath.  I had a game a few weeks ago with a 56/56 Hamletback.  He gets big quick.  Enduring Renewal could get fun too.

Thanks for the input. I did have the Elixir in here previously, but I put it in my Rhys deck as it had a more dire need for it than this deck does most of the time and I only have one right now (sold my collection and quit the game 3 years ago and have been rebuilding my collection). Didn't think about Puppet Strings. Not sure what I would take out for it right now. Enduring Renewal is interesting, but something else I'm not sure what I would take out to put it in.

Definitely on the lookout for Illusionist's Bracers as I know I want one for this deck as well my Rhys and R/B Wort EDH decks. Hoping I walk way from the prerelease with at least one and maybe another out of the booster box I plan on buying.

I guess for right now, I'm looking at
- Claws of Gix
+Hamletback Goliath

If you want to add some removal, throw in Fiend Hunter and Angel of Serenity. You can also get some land destruction with Petravark and Petradon. The trick with this is when the etb trigger is on the stack, throw them with Brion. This will put the ltb trigger on the stack and effectively remove a creature/land from the game.

I ran  Thunderblust in my build.  I was alwyas happy to see it.  It has the potential to be a 20 point life swing in one turn I find that to be relavent

Definitely worth a look. 20 point? Attack for 7, throw for 7. How is it hitting for the last 6 in that 1 turn? Brion untapping via another card?

You gain 7 life he throws for 7 damage and attacks for 6 7+7+6= 20.  So I gusse I should have put it 13 damage and gainging 7 life.  Either way seems good

Defintitly going to look into getting that guy.  Thinking about taking out stuff for the Molten and Luminate Primordials. I was thinking Orim's Thunder and Stranglehold. Also, Thespian's Stage and Emeria, the Sky Ruin + a Plains for the Artifact Lands and the Transguild Promenade. Also, recently acquired and Oblation without giving much thought to what I should take out. Thoughts?

I run these in my Brion deck:

Bazaar Trader
Conjurer's Closet
Cloudshift
Helvault
Avatar of Fury
Dragonmaster Outcast
Mass Mutiny
Sneak Attack
Gratuitous Violence
Yosei, the Morning Star
Rush of Blood
Fatal Frenzy
Phyrexian Dreadnought

Preacher is still worth it, btw.  Thunderblust, as suggested earlier, is great as well.



Why Bazaar Trader? Sneak attack is on my wishlist, but is out of my price range at the moment. Same for Yosei. The outcast is something I would definitely trade for, but I guess my biggest questions are what do I take out? I do own Gratuitous Violence, Mass Mutiny and Preacher, but not really sure what I would take out for them.

Why Bazaar Trader?


If you steal a creature with an effect such as Act of Treason you can use Bazaar Trader, target the creature you stole and use yourself as the target player to keep the creature!  Its deliciously evil. Cool

I had a good laugh at that because I too was wondering what Bazaar trader was doing in the deck but that is fantastic
