This time around, I’m going to upgrade the decks for three price points: $25, $50, and $100.

It misses some key things like Oko and T3feri, but it hits enough problem permanents that I forgive it. This card is a blockbuster in Brawl and you should expect your opponents to have a few ways to make it go the way of Blockbuster Video. That means it’s time to check back in on the decklist! Castle Vantress provides some sweet card selection, while Mystic Sanctuary allows us to cast something like Dovin’s Veto or Dance of the Manse a second time. The idea here is to take the preconstructed Brawl decks and spend up to $25 (since it’s a 60-card deck, I’ve lowered the budget) before tax and shipping to improve them.

I’m benching this low-impact artifact in favor of this game-winning enchantment. But what goes in? See you next time! Making a 7/7 or larger in the late game can put you in a position to take over the board regardless of what’s on there, and with all the multicolored decks out there, it can be hard to remove. I understand the price tag can be prohibitive, but you’ll want these for Standard and Pioneer if you play these formats, and it’s good in Commander too. If you see an inconsistency because of that, I apologize, but it’s inevitable. Oh, and this is predicated around multiplayer Brawl, just like my Commander articles. We've updated our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Format: Brawl There are plenty of artifacts and enchantments in this deck worth copying–Smothering Tithe obviously comes to mind, as do many others–but don’t forget that you can copy your opponents’ artifacts and enchantments too! Finally, Emergence Zone is pretty woeful–you have to sacrifice it, which means it’s no Winding Canyons or Alchemists’ Refuge. Okay! You’ll want these lands in your collection if you don’t already own them. Let’s start, as we always do, by mercilessly cutting some cards from the original decklist. Other Brawl Budget Upgrades Wild Bounty | Savage Hunter | Faerie Schemes. Bounce something and draw a card, or just plus and hold on to your open mana for the very few sorceries we have. That’s a great start. Sure, Emry draws fire, but so does Alela, and at least this means your opponents will have to make decisions. You lose the ability to generate colors of mana besides blue that Mana Geode provides, but that’s not a huge cost. MTGGoldfish, Inc. is not affiliated with Wizards of the Coast LLC. We’re going to throw a wrench in here, though. This deck doesn’t usually want to wrath the board, so cutting one for Doom Foretold–a card that fits in well with our horde of tokens and artifacts like Guild Globe and Golden Egg–seems like a no-brainer. Using Dovin’s +1 to build up loyalty is made easier by Alela’s swarm of tokens, and the -7 is a great card advantage vehicle to build toward. Well, here’s what I’m adding: Emry is an obvious inclusion in this deck–casting artifacts from the graveyard is huge in terms of getting Alela value. Well, that’s not too hard to do. You may opt-out at any time. My personal information may be used for the purposes defined in the privacy policy. Upgrading the manabase is, as always, a big deal. Just like that, we’re up to a total spend of $49.76. Hey folks! As we go through the changes, I’ll list the prices (from this very website, ChannelFireball.com) of each card I plan to add. Animating Faerie doesn’t pack the punch it has in Limited or in 1v1 Brawl–an early-game 4/4 will only draw the ire of the table, and Alela needs time to set up. 1 Mythic, 11 Rare, 16 Uncommon, 16 Common. On balance, we’re in need of some more blue sources, and it’s hard to beat these two. As such it doesn’t provide too much wiggle room for upgrades. At MTGGoldfish, we value your privacy. Usually the bounced creature’s name is Alela, but if she’s not around, we have some other good choices (Emry, Arcanist’s Owl). User Submitted Deck Oath of Kaya is the classic “rattlesnake” card with a Lightning Helix layered on top. Okay! After doing the $50 upgrades for the Commander 2019 decks, it’s only natural that I would do budget upgrades for the new Brawl decks. Other Brawl Budget Upgrades Wild Bounty | Knights’ Charge | Faerie Schemes. Esper Faeries, Artifacts, and Enchantments (Oh My). Kaya’s Wrath won’t usually be destroying lots of our Faeries and giving us a big life upgrade, so we’ll use Time Wipe instead. I’ll probably adapt these decks for 1v1 and record them in the Brawl queue when I get a chance, but for now, we’re going to take a break from Brawl and head back to Commander for a while. If this ends up being something you like, I’ll incorporate it into more articles. This week, we’ll be focusing on the Knights’ Charge deck featuring Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale. (Yes, just like last time, there’s no Unlimited version – you’ll see why.) That way, you can see how I keep things in budget. you can find the full decklist for this and all the Brawl precons here. These ones are out right away: Shinechaser and All That Glitters are on theme flavor-wise, but in a deck like this our goal is to overwhelm opponents with Faerie tokens. Our only fetchland! Lawmage’s Binding, despite its flashiness, is the worst of our enchantment-based removal.
