Breya, Etherium Shaper Discussion

esper is artifact based combo most of the times otherwise you may try Breya, Etherium Shaper thats only less artifact centered or Atraxa, Praetors' Voice where you can try all possible way to build her. For combos....Thopter Foundry + Sword of the Meek + Krark-Clan Ironworks and Rings of Brighthearth + Basalt Monolith\Grim Monolith + Sensei's Divining Top are the most famous. Except for the second one it depends on what commander you will choose

Ashnod's Altar+Nim Deathmantle+Breya, Etherium Shaper is infinite. :P
I do not run the disk because I don't like land destruction, and that's what will happen if Mycosynth Lattice is out. I feel it's unfair and most decks cannot recover from it. Just my own MTG ethics. I have the cards to make this deck nasty as hell, but I don't like facing an endless wave of BS so I try not to present one myself, haha.
Blightsteel Colossus is on my mental shopping list - it'd be nice to have even if for no other reason than to move the Darksteel Colossus into another deck.

Specifically how this plays out is Breya, Etherium Shaper enters the battlefield and Panharmonicon causes her ETB trigger to be put on the stack twice. The stack is now two copies of Breya's ETB. If there are no responses one copy resolves, tries to create two 1/1 blue Thopter artifact creature tokens with flying, sees Anointed Procession, and creates four 1/1 blue Thopter artifact creature tokens with flying instead. Assuming nobody responds again, the other copy of Breya's trigger resolves once again tries to create two 1/1 blue Thopter artifact creature tokens with flying, sees Anointed Procession, and creates four 1/1 blue Thopter artifact creature tokens with flying instead. The end result is eight 1/1 blue Thopter artifact creature tokens with flying, and a thankful you because had it gone infinite the game would have drawn unless you had enough mana or a sacrifice outlet to stop things from being infinite.

So, let's say Panharmonicon+Anointed Procession are on the field and I cast Breya, Etherium Shaper - She comes in, drops 4 thopers from the Panharmonicon triggering her ETB an additional time, then those thopers are doubled by Anointed Procession from 4 thopers to 8 thopters.
Do the additional thopter tokens from Anointed Procession trigger Panharmonicon again? And if so, does this cause an infinite amount of tokens?

Hey etheraldreamer, Inexorable Tide is excellent, see where your going there. The reason I don't run it is simply its CMC 5, I'm hoping to already be setup with Mizzix of the Izmagnus around there. Longer term you'll get more value playing a Inexorable Tide.
Austin_Smith_of_Cards, excellent suggestions. Lava Spike + Desperate Ritual + Izzet Guildmage is an excellent kill combo. Adding it to my description above. The only part I don't like is that the Lava Spike, standalone it's not that great. Desperate Ritual although a little under powered, is still borderline playable card. Usually I prefer combos where each card is okay on it's own, but not always, see Pili-Pala.
Stroke of Genius has been on the cusp, for a long time. I keep questioning whether to get it in there or not. Visions of Beyond seems like the best remove for it, but I'm so low on Isochron Scepter targets as is. I've had 2 scenarios in 7 games now where i've had to wait 2 turns to pull an instant with CMC 2 or less for the Isochron Scepter so I know that I need more targets not less. Curious Homunculus Flip / Voracious Reader Flip is more likely.
I have Scour from Existence in my maybeboard, Purphoros, God of the Forge is a key reason why Scour from Existence is key. Chaos Warp for me just doesn't do it. In play testing I'm still trying to figure out if 1) Play for my infinite combo, or 2) Have control to stop other combos is the correct play. Thus far I haven't lost (yet, but been at 1 life). Can't remember all the commander's I've faced (No Prossh, Skyraider of Kher yet so that would be a real challenge). Some commanders: Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge, Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, Breya, Etherium Shaper (seems to be the flavor of the month right now), Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Kaalia of the Vast, Oloro, Ageless Ascetic, Karn, Silver Golem, The Gitrog Monster, can't remember any others. So verdict is till out on that. It's VERY good.
Fact or Fiction is funny, I just took it out of the deck Friday to test some other cards in it's place. I very much missed it in this weekend's games. Fact or Fiction returning to the deck soon as I figure out the removals. I'm considering removing the Isochron Scepter, that would change up a few cards that are simply there just to be targets, but then again when I think of an Isochron Scepter + Counterspell or Isochron Scepter + Mystical Tutor or Isochron Scepter + Cyclonic Rift... hmm, how do I not want that recursion, or a Visions of Beyond! = Draw 3 cards.
All Excellent suggestions, any or all should be in the deck. I'm still trying to figure out my fringe cards. Training Grounds maybe.

This deck was built with Multiplayer Commander in mind which is the only Commander format I personally care about. To play 1v1 I still prefer modern. In multiplayer the last ban announcement came last month after Aether Revolt had time to sink in, and no changes were made to the banlist which leads me to believe Breya is safe in the format, since the sets that would strengthen her the most were just released and evaluated in that announcement. In fact, I believe no bans are going to be announced with Amonkhet either, since the panel which decides the EDH banlist is very conservative about banning cards and nothing is too broken in the format right now. And the main reason these cards are broken in 1v1 Commander has more to due with the life total rule change that they've made recently, than with any broken strategy in particular, IMO, but that's a conversation for another topic.
Long story short, Breya is and will be safe from the multiplayer ban hammer and rightfully so. If you do like the list and want to build your own, you should be safe ;)

Thanks for all the advice, guys :)
I think it's important to note that the decks I'll be playing against aren't the fully fleshed-out versions of their commanders; for example, the Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck is currently just an upgraded precon (though he's looking to buy a Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger and Sheoldred, Whispering One soon), so I won't have to worry much about being underpowered compared to my friends.
So, as Bhaal666 mentioned, the Breya, Etherium Shaper deck has always been my pet-favorite of the three. Although I probably won't be able to get most of the landbase for a while (damn you, fetches!), most of the deck can be bought on the cheap and it has that janky-but-powerful feel I enjoy.
For Izu_Korasu, the idea behind Breya, Etherium Shaper as the commander was that she could serve as a utility piece for using your excess Myr tokens (in addition to giving me four colors). Though, now that you bring up Silas Renn, Seeker Adept & Akiri, Line-Slinger, I'm starting to reconsider. I may make the switch to those two, but I'll have to find a card to cut in the maindeck to make room for them. Any suggestions?
And yeah, Daedalus19876, I've been interested in Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons since she was spoiled, and she seems awesome (love your deck, btw!). While she's probably the best long-term investment in terms of acquiring staples and such, I currently run an upgraded Daretti, Scrap Savant deck when we play, so I could cross some of the artifacts I'm currently using between the decks. Not sure how practical that is, but it's an option I suppose.
Anyway, I'm gonna make a few revisions to the decks and mull over my options for a while. Again, thanks for all the help, I really appreciate it :)
