SideBae on Breya, Artifact Shaper Synergies

Breya is always an interesting deck. I personally like the infinite-mana options; repeatedly casting Breya, then sac-ing her and one of the thopters to bolt an opponent results in game over immediately. I see three ways that are easiest to achieve that goal.

First, the bomberman combo: Auriok Salvagers with Lion's Eye Diamond . LED is an infamously expensive card though, so the other two may be easier to get ahold of.

Second, reanimated dragon combo: Worldgorger Dragon with Animate Dead , Necromancy , Dance of the Dead , or any other reanimating enchantment. The Worldgorger (which is reanimated from the yard) trigger exiles the reanimation enchantment, which lets it die, which returns the enchantment, which brings back the dragon... tapping all your lands/mana rocks for mana when they flicker in results in infinite mana. You really need another creature to target to end the loop, but it isn't too difficult to make sure this is the case.

Third, Dramatic Reversal with Isochron Scepter . You'll need 3+ mana from the rocks, but that also shouldn't be too hard.

Note that combos 1 and 2 accommodate Entomb effects as a tutor. So if you want to run those combos, Entomb , Buried Alive and/or Faithless Looting and the like are your friends. Note also that 1 and 2 generate infinite ETB triggers. Pairing them with Altar of the Brood allows you to win even if your commander has been countered or removed to oblivion. Furthermore, running Sculpting Steel or Phyrexian Metamorph to copy Sharuum the Hegemon creates a loop where you sac one to the legend rule and then bring back either the original or copying artifact. That also generates infinite ETB triggers, and is a pet combo of mine.

I strongly advise tutors outside the transmute ones. Demonic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor , Imperial Seal , Enlightened Tutor , Reshape , Whir of Invention , Gamble and Transmute Artifact are all in your colors (though some are more easily obtained than others). These will increase your deck's consistency, regardless of whether you decide to use the combo-build.

Depending on your deck's budget, you might want to consider your mana base as a work-in-progress. Slow Fetches like Rocky Tar Pit and Flood Plain are well under a dollar, and work well enough as a replacement for Bloodstained Mire or Flooded Strand . Mana Confluence and City of Brass are also powerhouses in a 4-color deck. You should at least consider Forbidden Orchard .

I advise Swords to Plowshares over Path to Exile . Ramping your opponent is especially dangerous in EDH, but the life-gain is typically not relevant.

Ramp is important in any EDH deck. Mind Stone is a good addition, along with Ancient Tomb . I typically don't care for 3-mana rocks, but Chromatic Lantern is good in 4- or 5-color decks. Izzet Signet is a good idea in addition to the other two signets you're running. Non-blue ones aren't nearly as good, but if you really need another, I advise Orzhov Signet over Boros Signet or Rakdos Signet . Sculpting Steel and Phyrexian Metamorph are good ways to copy opponents' rocks as well as your own, or even creatures in the case of the metamorph. Copy Artifact is another option.

Because you're in black, you have access to some real good card draw. Phyrexian Arena and Staff of Nin are good as permanent sources of card-advantage. Ambition's Cost , Ancient Craving , Painful Truths and Chart a Course are all good ways to draw cards as well.

If you're running Eldrazi Displacer , I suggest also running Containment Priest . That becomes {2}{C}: Exile target creature.

Good luck with deck building.

Is there a reason Divergent Transformations isn't in this list? It seems cool to me to find Trinket Mage and Auriok Salvagers and insta-win, but is it just too slow to cast Breya and Divergent Transformations in sequence?

griffstick: Yhea, not to obvious :)

This deck isnn't based off of the combo, but it sometimes happens:

Dross Scorpion , Auriok Salvagers , Ornithopter , Ashnod's Altar + white mana producing artifact :)

Heya lorre it's been awhile!

In this build, there isn't an infinite combo. It's a pure value build where you out pace your opponents and out value them. You can make it an infinite combo deck by adding in cards like Karmic Guide , Reveillark , and Blood Artist (or any death rigger effects) to make infinite combos.

Same can be said with adding in Leonin Relic-Warder , it goes infinite death triggers, and if you have an another outlet for it, it becomes an infinite combo as well. You even have the option to go for Lion's Eye Diamond and Auriok Salvagers if you want infinite mana.

There are plenty of way to go infinite, but that would need to swap out different cards to add it in! Lmk if that helps you out!

Bomberman is the name given to the combo Auriok Salvagers and Lion's Eye Diamond . Dad refers to Ghost Council of Orzhova Here's how the combo works.

  1. Have Auriok Salvagers and Lion's Eye Diamond in play.
  2. Pop Lion's Eye Diamond for and discarding our hand
  3. We spend to activate the ability of Salvagers, returning Lion's Eye Diamond to our hand. We have netted mana
  4. We can loop steps 2 and 3 as many times as we want, generating infinite mana. We then loop steps 2 and 3 as many times as we want, generating infinite mana.
  5. We play our commander, causing an opponent to lose 1 life and we gain 1 life.
  6. We sacrifice our commander to its own ability, sending it back to the command zone.
  7. We use our infinite mana to repeat steps 5 and 6 until all opponents have been drained of all life.

To explain the Relic Warder combo

  1. Leonin Relic-Warder is in the graveyard. We have either Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat on the battlefield.
  2. We cast either Animate Dead or Dance of the Dead targeting Relic Warder.
  3. Relic Warder enters the battlefield, causing its ability to trigger. We choose to exile the reanimation enchantment that is keeping Relic Warder in play.
  4. The enchantment becomes exiled, causing Relic Warder to go to the graveyard from the battlefield. Relic Warder's leave the battlefield trigger fires, and our reanimation enchantment comes back. We target Relic Warder.
  5. We repeat steps 3 and 4 to form an infinite loop of Relic Warder going to the graveyard from the battlefield. Every time it leaves, we cause opponents to lose life with Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat until all our opponents die.

hkhssweiss Breya huh? I can dig that actually. Does your friend aim to assemble the bomberman combo with Auriok Salvagers and Trinket Mage fetching Lion's Eye Diamond for his Divergent Transformations targets? Or is he using another Divergent package?

Feel free to spam this page naturesnake420 I use this as a soundboard for testing my CSS pages haha.

Tainted Pact doesn't work with Uba Mask as it specifically says that it has to be exiled with Uba Mask in order to play it. I only use Tainted Pact with linear win cons, as it is a forbidden tutor for a reason. Usually in Prossh/Breya decks going for the Food Chain / Auriok Salvagers + Lion's Eye Diamond combo or Labman wins is where I would use the Pact.

Chains of Mephistopheles is great in stax and reanimation decks, not so great in control decks as usually we want asymmetrical value. In a different build I would say run it but not Lantern Control-esque builds.
