Arcum Dagsson -> Elvish Piper/Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip/Tooth and Nail/Caravan Vigil/Mana Reflection/Quicksilver Amulet/Summoner's Egg/Fool's Demise/Curator's Ward/Lightning Greaves/Conqueror's Flail/??

Some additional protection for your combo pieces comes to mind. Maybe just another counterspell. But Arcum doesn't belong in the deck IMO

List your top 5 cards that are too strong to play with casuals but too weak to make a splash at a cedh table.

1) Expropriate

2) Kaalia of the Vast

3) Arcum Dagsson - post paradox engine banning and urza

4) Krenko, Mob Boss

5) Seton, Krosan Protector

Hey there! This is very similar to my artifact deck here Tezzeret

I know this deck gets up to a lot of shenanigans, and I've thought about changing my commanders to Breya.

I highly suggest Karn, the Great Creator as it combos with Mycosynth Lattice to turn off all of your opponents'... everything. (They can't even tap their lands for mana).

I also recommend Arcum Dagsson as an even more powerful version of Master Transmuter.

Also, since your combos are permanents, I've found a lot of success with The Planar Bridge. Yes its slightly over-costed, but repeatable combo tutoring turns out to be back-breaking.

Also I would throw in at least 5 counterspells to start.

Kamahl, Fist of Krosa is a land hate deck, turnings your lands and killing them or stealing them. Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose dude combos off with 1 other card and is in black meaning all the tutors you need. Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger i never played against it but that ability is pretty good. Arcum Dagsson literally a tutor on a stick, not only does it tutor but it puts the card on the bettlefield. Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker goes infinite. Krenko, Mob Boss built right and can be very competitive. The Locust God infinite plus is very difficult to remove. Narset, Enlightened Master she wins turn like 2-3. some commanders need to be de-ranked and i feel there should be more tiers.

Arcum Dagsson is a very versatile commander, so you can build him a whole bunch of fun different ways. I added in the degenerate combos when my playgroup got a bit more competitive. Prior to that I basically built it as an artifact good stuff deck.

Hey there, fellow Construct tribal player. Here are some cards I think this list could benefit from:

-Arcum Dagsson -Walking Ballista -Herald's Horn -Howling Mine -Fabricate -Whir of Invention -Inventors' Fair -Kuldotha Forgemaster -Reshape

I'm taking a fair amount of deck changes from your list, though. So thanks for that.

AkimotoRiku, thanks for the upvote. Much of current deck description is out of date. I haven't had time to update it yet.

If you can afford a good four color manabase then in my opinion Breya is a much better Commander than Alela because Breya is a combo enabler/win condition. Having a combo piece in the Command Zone who can also be a win condition really increases the power level of a deck. Breya being an artifact is what makes her such a good Commander with artifact strategies and since she can sac herself for her 3 damage to a player mode is what makes her a win condition with combos.

Recently released Double Masters has helped this deck a lot. Breya is reprinted in the set and there's many other cards that are now budget options. The manabase got huge help from the Filter lands, Glimmervoid and I'm watching Sunken Ruins and Academy Ruins. Master Transmuter, Phyrexian Metamorph, Baleful Strix, Sculpting Steel are now very good budget artifacts and I'm watching Darksteel Forge. Arcum Dagsson's price has been cut in half letting me add him back in. Sword of the Meek is now a budget equipment and it combos with Thopter Foundry.

RiotRunner789 on Commander ideas?

I would recommend going through and looking at EDHREC's top commanders or through their top commanders of your preferred color/colors. See if anything pops out as particularly fun. Also, their random button is a good way to just find commanders you had no idea about.

In general though, I would recommend a commander that can be built a myriad of ways. Ergo, like aforementioned Marchesa. Marchessa The Black Rose can be built easily as a combo, theft, +1/+1 counters, and/or aggro. I personally built a Marchessa combo/aggro and its really fun.

The opposite is to stay away from linear commanders. Chulane, Teller of Tales looks initially good but all the builds end up 80% the same. The Arcum Dagsson I built ended up being a linear commander. I built a toolbox to be reactionary but most of the time it just makes sense to grab and assemble a lock out combo such as Mycosynth Lattice, Darksteel Forge, and Nevinyrral's Disk. He proved to not be fun when I played him as it was mostly the same (I would argue any commander that tutors will end up being too linear or too many tutors make a linear deck).
