Deck Spotlight: Brion Stoutarm EDH (part 4 – lands and complete list!)

This will be the last post on my Brion Stoutarm deck for a while at least, and in this I’ll go over the lands and then continue on with the entire list. Again, it is very much a work in progress, just today I added Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker (finally got my hands on one, thanks for the trade, Ludvig!) and Weathered Wayfarer over Griffin Dreamfinder and Journey to Nowhere. While the latter two are very cool cards, the former two are obviously more powerful in most cases, especially since I play about half as many enchantments in the deck now compared to when it was new.

The lands are also budget-y as all hell, I’d like to add a Battlefield Forge, a Sacred Foundry and a Plateau, but I don’t want to drop the cash on it just yet. They’d fit nicely with Kor Cartographer and Arid Mesa, but I like to trade for pieces of the deck as I go along, and not just log onto TrollAndToad or something and buy the entire list of cards. Otherwise it looks like this:


Teaching giants how to toss goats for four generations

1 Ancient Tomb
1 Arid Mesa
1 Boros Garrison
1 City of Traitors
1 Command Tower
1 Evolving Wilds
1 Ghost Quarter
1 Kor Haven
1 Sejiri Steppe
1 Slayers’ Stronghold
1 Terramorphic Expanse
11 Plains
13 Mountain

I like to keep the basic count high to be less effected by my own Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon, and otherwise it’s very straightforward. The oddest land is probably Slayers’ Stronghold, but I like it for giving Brion and my other creatures Haste, and the art-work is really cool. Auto-inclusion, that is.

The rest of the deck, in its entirety, with the new additions:

1 Brion Stoutarm

    Looks very nice! Personally I would love to hear more reports of the games you play with your EDH-decks in the style of “Commander nights with Brion”. Since almost anything can happen in a EDH game they usually make for a good reading!

    Oh, and one more thing, personally there were at least a few cards that I had to google. Now, I know that it would be quite bothersome to make each card name a separate link, but perhaps you could post links to the various decklists on more easy to view sites or something? That would at least make me a happier Lavamancer.


    • I’m working on getting some sort of card tags for the decks, perhaps I’ll upload them to or something for an extra click but a better list.

      The issues with the card tags is that you can’t install plug-ins on blogs. On blogs, if you have a remote host and pay for everything yourself, there’s a bunch of neat plug-ins for auto-card links etc. Then again, I’m poor.

        Rob a bank. That’s what Jesus would have done.
