    I like bruna, but not big on gisela, still like them both and putting both in kaalia

    • Jazzyboy1

      Gisela is much more playable in Limited and Modern. Bruna is really cool for EDH though.

    • Guest

      Yeah. I like the fact that Bruna can get back a human too.

      Both of them could really see play in a less competitive build.

  • Khan1104

    Hmm 7 mana 5/7 Flying Vigilance that summons target Avacyn or Linvala out of your grave to the battlefield seems very powerful.

    • Arcus Diabolus

      Defy death is a better option if only for the fact that its cheaper. Emeria Shepherd from BFZ also works a touch better since its reusable

      • Happy The Cat

        or you could get that new 4/3 legendary with flying, first strike, and lifelink. for the love of me I cant remember what it was called

  • Dr. Burn Crow

    Beefcake Bruna.

  • Jacob Kodicovic

    Playing both in my GW human tribal deck.

  • Jay Kilian

    These two could see play in a Gifts Ungiven/Burial Rites/Goryo deck. Get Bruna out of the grave she brings her friend and then they Meld. Turn 5. Eesh.

    • Yoeri Mtg

      Hate to ruin your day, but she triggers on cast so reanimating her would not work.

  • Bostorket

    “Hey, Kaalia!”


    “Want a narrower-but-beefier Karmic Guide?”

    “Sure, why not.”

    • Happy The Cat

      that’s what I was thinking, reread it, it says cast otherwise there would be a slot opening up in my mayael edh

  • Robert FakeLastName

    so what are the exact game rules for meld?

    • Happy The Cat

      once you meld both cards are exiled, then you return them when the card says with both of them stacked and upside down revealing the melded card.

  • Bige Boiy

    While Gisela is much more consistently good in limited, if you can hit ANY angel with Bruna’s cast ability you will usually win the game.

    • Bige Boiy

      also 7 mana 5/7 flyer even without vigi is really strong

    • Happy The Cat

      too bad she only has one creature to hit that isn’t at least rare(four mythics two rares and one uncommon from SoI)

      • Nolly

        This being said with only 20-some cards in the set spoiled.
        Also ignoring the fact it says human.

        • Happy The Cat

          see, if I ignore them for long enough, maybe humans will stop being good, I might be ignoring them until late september when CoCo rotates out of standard

      • Bige Boiy

        only one so far

  • Bige Boiy

    also notable: the easiest way to stick Iona against decks with counterspells is to reanimate her on cast :)

  • Deadly Berry

    “When you cast”… sigh, they really want to make Brisela unplayable…

    • Happy The Cat

      realy? cause we are seeing newlamog getting hard cast in standard and modern and all he does is eat a couple lands and get chump blocked three times. bris will be hand locking most of modern if she comes out. not to mention that Gis is a small baneslayer who could win a game by herself and this girl can hit humans like snapcaster with that on cast effect.

      • Driven

        That late into the game, it’s not a good idea to just have Ulamog eat up lands. Take out their biggest creatures or nastiest enchantments, have him chop away while milling the Hel out of the player.

        In standard and modern, all he needs is 3 swings tops to mil out 60 cards.

  • Dr. Burn Crow

    I might make a monowhite EDH deck with this as my commander and call it Bad Religion.

  • eltratzo

    Since no one seems to have said it yet I am afraid I have to:

    I rate her a solid 5/7.

    …I’m sorry -.-
