A amusing Breya, Etherium Shaper deck, relatively budget.

Decided I wanted to spice up my boring Invent Superiority upgrade and turn it into a super janky casual combo/control deck based around the Sword of the Meek and Thopter Foundry combo. Basic idea is to play a bunch of cheap artifact creature generators like Genesis Chamber , Golem Foundry , Retrofitter Foundry , Efficient Construction , Hidden Stockpile , Thopter Spy Network , Flamewright , Loyal Apprentice , and Sly Requisitioner to get as many artifact chumps out as I can per turn, and use them for two purposes - to feed Breya, Etherium Shaper ’s removal to control the board state and stave threats while we find our combo, as well as to feed Kuldotha Forgemaster so he can tutor out our win con - Sword of the Meek , Thopter Foundry , and Ashnod's Altar .

Once we have all the pieces out we have a couple of options on how to proceed, depending on which auxiliary creatures we have. Ideally, we have either Orc Sureshot or Zulaport Cutthroat / Vindictive Vampire out when the combo goes off to wipe all of our opponents creatures or just kill everyone outright respectively. If all we have are the above combo pieces, we just go infinite and make a ton of thopters, hoping no one has a board wipe before our next turn rolls around. Having Pitiless Plunderer out at this point can also be huge, as he generates a ton of colored mana for us, and combined with Dark Prophecy we can dig through the deck to find any of the above creatures and cast them with the treasures we’ve made. We’ve also featured a host of other artifact tutors that can either search out our combo pieces directly, search out Kuldotha Forgemaster so he can tutor the pieces, or transmute into specific cards we need.

My main questions are:

  • Are there any good passive artifact creature generators I’m missing here? Preferably ones that don’t cost any mana to use, or cost 1 at most.
  • Are there any fun (and inexpensive) etb/death triggers you think I could include? I considered Butcher of Malakir , but her casting cost is more expensive than Orc Sureshot for essentially the same end result.
  • Most importantly, does anyone have ideas for wrangling this manabase? This is my biggest concern right now, and compiling mana for a four colored deck is not easy on a budget. Blue and black comprise the majority of the important cards in here, but since Breya costs 1 of each of the four colors to cast, red and white are realistically just as important as the other two. I don’t want to be spending 5+ dollars on lands here. I’ve considered the talisman cycle, but most of those are decently pricey as well for what they are. Thoughts?

See the commander specific piles for commanders which commonly play DD as a primary game plan.

But also here for reference I have seen Doomsday in:

Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge

Kess, Dissident Mage

Zur the Enchanter

Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder

Breya, Etherium Shaper

Thrasios, Triton Hero + Tymna the Weaver (Or other partners)

Grenzo, Dungeon Warden - Alternative DD style

The Gitrog Monster - If you just want to over complicate your deck for no real benefit

Oona, Queen of the Fae - Not needed but heck it works

Dralnu, Lich Lord - Other UB commmander

Rip Leovold, Emissary of Trest ....


Yeah, it's rough my dude. A lot of these cards cost a pretty penny.

DiverDown on Help choosing an artifact commander? ...

To break it down for you, your top picks for what you want to do with the deck are going to be Arcum, Breya, and Jhoira.

Arcum Dagsson is the most linear of the three and perhaps the easiest to pilot, which is really friendly to learn how to play it especially when you're not dedicated to exclusively playing that deck amongst other decks you like to rotate through. The primary combo package is incredibly straightforward, but because of that it may become boring to win that way every time after racking up a couple wins with him, so I'd keep that in mind.

Breya, Etherium Shaper is perhaps the most powerful with the most combo potential out of all of them. She is more consistent with access to black for tutors, and she has more paths to winning in her arsenal. This deck will be the most expensive to boot and optimize, but it is very much your strongest candidate for what you want out of an artifact-based deck. There are a myriad of ways to win in the deck and it's simply a blast to pilot.

If you want to play stax combo, then you want to play Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain . A bit different from the others mentioned, and I've found that the deck is very heavily reliant on her being on the battlefield for her to function (which can be said about any commander really), but it's done in such a way that there are so many places to interact with her combo that it's easier to stop her momentum than it is for others. The stax of course helps with disrupting interaction, but she can fizzle and run out of gas if she's not on the field since she is really just used as a draw engine for the deck and without her on the field you won't be consistently drawing into the things you'd like to see. Regardless, she is still powerful and has more ways to win unlike Arcum, but is less consistent than Breya.

If you're looking for a deck that will always be fun to play and you like to have multiple ways to win at your disposal, I recommend Breya or Jhoira. Depending on your playstyle preference, it really comes down to one or the other. I am more of an advocate of Breya if you couldn't tell by now, I really think you will have the most success with her and she will always prove to keep things interesting every time you pilot her. I think Arcum is the most forgiving to play, but the fact that you have a few other higher tier commander decks leads me to believe you are pretty experienced with EDH, so Arcum wouldn't be my top pick for you.

Best of luck to you! I hope my advice helps and I'd like to hear back from you when you decide on a commander to build. Feel free to post a decklist in this thread or on my wall if you need help in regard to specific card suggestions. You can also private message me if you want to enable chat. Cheers!

Hey max, I played with it 3 times so far and won every time. I'm thinking about reducing the mana a bit. Since I run a pretty budget mana-base i'm not too sure at the moment.

I won my games in 3 different ways so far:

So far i'm really happy with the deck. It plays fun and does something on every turn.

@4Lark: Decided again. I'll try & do a Mortal Engines (Movie) Vorthos Deck. Based on the LOGO alone, the World has gone through Scenery Gorn, & the only thing that still lives are cities on wheels. NOT necessarily a Vehicle Deck in a way. The Sixty Minute War seems like a kind of Mass Removal Straight out of a HUGE Wrath Effect that Exiles. Potentially & ; most likely also . So far, we have Mardu color, though I guess I could throw in as this is Technological in a sense. I would throw in Breya, Etherium Shaper as the base, but I think 2 commanders (Both representing Tom Natsworthy & Hester Shaw each.). Okay; I think I got my colors down for a potential Mortal Engines Deck. Question now is: can I do it alone? I don't want to use the Books as a base; just the Movie((s) if a sequel happens...)

jordybear2002 I do not use discord. I have some more time now though so I went through what you have and see 3 decks that could be made quite strong. Sliver Queen, Breya, Etherium Shaper, and Ezuri, Claw of Progress. Pick one of these and start looking through every article/primer/deck you can find.

Breya already looks like a strong deck so you should probably build upon that one.
