When you were treasure hunting, we studied The Blade.
While you were attuning to the Roil, we mastered The Blockchain.
While you were disarming and setting traps, we cultivated Inner Strength.
And now that the Zendikar is collapsing and the Eldrazi are at the gate, you have the audacity to come to us for help ?

I took [url=this deck][/url] (first Bruse Tarl / Akiri build in search results), and reworked it.
I don't think original list was very thought-out... I mean come on, no Mirror Entity or Taurean Mauler, but a 3 mana 3/1 Ally with first strike while attacking ?
Completely unconvinced that an aggressive EDH deck should run random symmetrical boardwipes. Seems like a great way to shoot yourself in the leg. Austere Command or Akroma's Vengeance could be useful, but Day of Judgement ?

I always love an ally deck.
Your commanders aren't showing up in the auto card.

Leonin Sun Standart out, Dragon Throne of Tarkir in.
A bit less immediate efficency for a ton of pontential and synergy. Also, deck has problems with evasion, so Trample is great.

Hammer of Purphoros out, Steelshaper's Gift in.
This is a very painful cut, and Gift is 4,5 $, but
1) We have 3 other haste enablers.
2) A lot of power of the deck comes from the toolbox of artifacts. Most of really key pieces are 1-ofs.
3) Turn 1 Gift for Explorer's Scope or Mask of Memory into turn 2 Akiri into turn 3 play/equip/attack is SO good. For extra troll, search Quietus Spike.

General's Kabuto out, Mask of Avacyn in.
Apparently, Shroud not only interferes with Equip abilities, but also with the Bruse's epic boost ! While Lightning Greaves are easy to move around, and Whishpersilk Cloak has no close equivalents, Mask of Avacyn is a cheaper General's Kabuto with slightly tweaked abilities that we CAN just give to Bruse Tarl to harass opponents with a 4/5 Lifelink, Double Strike, Hexproof sweaty masked dude that will grab more and more weapons as the game progresses.
