Breya, Etherium Shaper Discussion

TheBloopKing on Morophon, Bound to Dragons (5 Colour EDH)

3 days ago

Thanat0s141 being able to deal 5 damage split up is actually quite powerful in my meta. We have other commanders such as Marath, Will of the Wild , and Najeela, the Blade-Blossom that love to go wide, and others like Breya, Etherium Shaper and Azami, Lady of Scrolls that love to go off. 5 damage takes out a lot. Removal is extremely crucial in my play group

In past games, it has sat in my hand, but with a new commander, and way to make it cheaper. A 8/8 flying, trample, for 5 mana isn't a bad play.

My maybe board also counts as my acquire board. Thundermaw Hellkite is one of the better dragons in magic. If I had it, I'd be playing it.

I do agree with more haste. Hammer of Purphoros is very likely to come in

Vlasiax on Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund

Lately I also had a thought about Chromatic Lantern - in 5 colors I tend to keep it since this is game of variables and you might not always be able to fix mana producers perfectly.

However in 2-4 color decks (besides maybe Breya, Etherium Shaper ) if you have perfect collection of fetches, shocks, maybe duals (not necessary), painlands and a few basics then you don't need it. If you have some budget cuts and sub-optimal options then I'd give it a try but 3 color deck is a place where fixing gets more important but it's still not that hard to get done right during early game.

K1ngMars on Commander combos w/ Artifact 4 ...

I think it all depends on what you want your infinite loop to do. As previously stated, you generally need a minimum of 2 cards to create a loop, but that's useless if there's no triggered ability that continuously goes on the stack adding mana/doing damage/drawing cards/milling your opponents.

Thus, all infinite combos trying to pull off some of the aforementioned effects need at least 3 cards.

My commander suggestions and best best for highly combo intensive decks based on artifacts would be Sharuum the Hegemon , Breya, Etherium Shaper (which includes most of the Sharuum combos) and Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient .

Flagellum on MagicalHacker

2 weeks ago

Purphoros, God of the Forge : token spam, mostly goblin tribal but not focused on that. Just so happens goblins like to breed a lot... Rarely do i turn stuff sideways. Purphoros and His Band of Hooligans

Breya, Etherium Shaper : nothing but infinite combos and artifact goodness here. Breya's ROFLcopter Shenanigans

The Gitrog Monster : Dredge, infinite combos. Ceratophrys Ornata: The Gitrog Monster

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain : artifact eggs, draws out the entire deck. Combos but not quite infinite. Honey Nut Jhoirios

Lastly Karametra but not much of a fan anymore. Just seems clunky and takes too long if I don't draw into any mana dorks. Marwyn gets me there faster and i can still combo off if aggro doesn't work.

Spirits on Kaalia of the Cruel

Hey LordKunai,

Looking good. Mark of Fury is okay, but has to survive till EOT. I hate 1 removal giving a 2 for 1. Maybe double up on your Expedite with Crimson Wisps . I like it better because it can still draw you an A/D/D to cast with the haste Kaalia of the Vast .

Is Reliquary Tower just for Necropotence ? I might just go colored mana (I know how much fixing we have, but all our spells are or etc. Too situational.

I see your playing Terramorphic Expanse , there's definitely other better fetch lands, but don't forget about Evolving Wilds . I don't recommend either because I hate tapped mana (except Bojuka Bog ).

Vault of the Archangel might be a little too mana intense now, but it's still decent enough. I think Reflecting Pool might still be affordable but I haven't bought one in a long time.

Obviously Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Restoration Angel or Village Bell-Ringer go infinite, but there is also Combat Celebrant and Zealous Conscripts as well, but of course relies on the Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker quite heavily.

Also, not sure if you've mapped out all your Infinite combos, but don't forget you have:

Adarkar Valkyrie + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Goblin Bombardment | Infinite Damage

Adarkar Valkyrie + Karmic Guide + Lightning Greaves or Dragon Tempest + Goblin Bombardment | Infinite Damage

Adarkar Valkyrie + Aurelia, the Warleader + Goblin Bombardment | Infinite Combat Phases

Adarkar Valkyrie + Village Bell-Ringer + Goblin Bombardment | Infinite Damage

And if you so choose, Adarkar Valkyrie + Zealous Conscripts + Goblin Bombardment | Infinite Damage

Thornbite Staff can also go infinite with Adarkar Valkyrie or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , also with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker avoids the UGLY equip . Just an FYI.

Tainted Pact is an inexpensive (and instant) speed tutor, the problem is, you can't have any duplicate lands in your deck (even duplicate basic lands) so that's where it gets expensive. There's also Demonic Consultation if your a gambler lol, damn those top 6, it's also instant so can pull a Master of Cruelties if Kaalia of the Vast triggered ability gets on the stack, tutor for the killer.

You may want Crucible of Worlds , it works best with all the fetches like Windswept Heath , Wooded Foothills all the fetch lands, but also is awesome with Strip Mine or Wasteland ($$$). If you have Crucible of Worlds + a Fetch land, basically can filter out all the mana from the deck (while ramping) so when you draw it's usually favorable. I've contemplated it over Chromatic Lantern but don't have one to test, although reasonably priced since reprint.

I have similar worries around Cartouche of Zeal (2 for 1), but when you need haste you need it. I like Leyline of the Void more than Tormod's Crypt , Relic of Progenitus for sure, since it's a lasting effect and CMC0 in opening hand, and prevents the Experience from getting earned at all. But they are ok at the job. Relic of Progenitus would be amazing if it could target the card, but it has more utility than Tormod's Crypt anyway even with the downside.

Be careful with Angel of Jubilation he shuts down your deck too, like Goblin Bombardment , Razaketh, the Foulblooded , Necropotence , Phyrexian Reclamation , Diabolic Intent (might be wrong on this one would have to check the rule book on additional costs), Mana Confluence , Bloodstained Mire (or any Fetch).

Maybe Blood Crypt / Godless Shrine / Sacred Foundry probably enter tapped too (again this one would have to read the rulebook too, not sure if that's considered paying a cost to "activate abilities" probably not because it doesn't have the : symbol on it.

City of Brass is another good multi-color mana asource.

Terminus is a terrific way of getting rid of all those recurring creatures too (unless he can sac them all in response somehow).

Sun Titan + Gift of Immortality love each other, but he's a hard cast in this deck (think about with Goblin Bombardment .

If you have a Grand Abolisher then Mark of Fury works well, but I dunno I wouldn't personally play it or Cartouche of Zeal too scary for me.

I might have mentioned before, Angel of Despair is far superior to someone like Angel of Jubilation unless she's solving a specific pod problem for disruption to your deck. Hellkite Tyrant is hand if you play artifact decks like Breya, Etherium Shaper or Teferi, Temporal Archmage .

Mother of Runes can give protection if your facing Targeted removal.

Oh Hall of the Bandit Lord can give haste too. Diabolic Tutor is a underplayed tutor but if your games are going beyond turn 6 it's quite viable.

Rakdos the Defiler is almost as deadly as a Master of Cruelties if you can get him connected early enough.

Some ideas anyway, the reprinted fetches like Windswept Heath are fairly cheap still (I think).

PS: Zealous Conscripts loves stealing, Haste attacking, and sacrificing opponents creatures with a Goblin Bombardment .

BMHKain on I finally found something bad ...

I'll just try this one last time for 4 color Bonds. & I will use The 5 Bonds from WAR as a base. Let's go for the final time; I had to cancel a Superfriends/Avengers Primer just to get help for cutting over 40+ stuff.

Pure enemies w/o a color they lack on their own are out. But what can 5 Bonds do?

Azorius Senate & Gruul Clans : If there is a reason; it's that the Gruul Clans already have allied with the Boros Legion ; & the latter had some kind of alliance w/ the Senate (Expect this reason to keep going.) Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis

Orzhov Syndicate & Izzet League (I dunno.): No idea how they'd work as a team; Unsure if the Izzet League can even comply w/ Azorius Senate law; but they are considered shard allies w/ the House of Dimir. This just might work, but how? Breya, Etherium Shaper

Cult of Rakdos & Simic Combine : Both are fuled with chaos in their own ridiculous way. Though the Combine's more Docile since Momir Vig, Simic Visionary 's departure, these should fit kinda well? Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder

Golgari Swarm & Boros Legion : Erm… The Swarm has an alliance w/ The Gruul Clans? They'd still be Jund, which is a Shard; not a Wedge... Saskia the Unyielding

Selesnya Conlcave & House of Dimir : Uh, maybe the House of Dimir has some kind o alliance w/ the other half of the bond; the Simic Combine? They also seem to like the Izzet League; which are bonded with the House of Dimir... Atraxa, Praetors' Voice

All Ilharging will be put in Charles Nelson Riley's Trash bin where the fanmail that rats on this topic will be thrown out over night; a night at a time.

That's the best I can do sadly. Any other ideas might be just fine w/ me. I'll be going now though... Sorry I put ALL of you through this hell...

BMHKain on I finally found something bad ...

I'm afraid I have nil choice but to BUMP this Shahrazad of a nightterror.

WAR's full roster is either almost finished, or complete; depending on its current status.

Apparently, my Vorthos Deck based on MORTAL ENGINES isn't happening after all... Only 3/5 Colors are having Legendary Vehicles; all, Team America style. , & don't have any of this. Very insulting as has quite the support of Artifice so much, so few of their Mono- stuff actually can kill something more "Alive" than Enchantments; which seem more natural that Artifacts if you ask me. Also, I really wanted to make a Mono- Artifacts matter deck; all while shaming the -related factions of the entire Multiverse; & beyond who think Nature is better than science; which it IS one. Has the MTG Team ever realized Progress is all of life, pure, impure, or, ANYTHING? Politics is one , isn't the only one who can do this from the start of 1993, Reanimation of the Dead, & Murder is also this , Immolating whole areas, even making a face also counts , & PLANTING TREES is a major example .

So after all your Ilharging , I'm still trying to find a way for other guilds to work w/o the use of "Bonds"; in which, the other parts are no used to despite being of Shard Status. (Not correct either, bruh.), much less the combinations that failed for that same Ilharging . I'll start w/ the obvious Azorius Senate .

Here's what we have left for them:

Azorius Senate & The Cult of Rakdos = Nope. Lawmages already arrested many performers of such illegal acts; maybe even Massacre Girl , & her Plagiarists.

Azorius Senate & Gruul Clans = DAMMIT! Surely the Gruul has some degree of control! They sided w/ the Boros Legion ; who are quasi-allies with the Senate!


I can't believe I lost a fight of my own I created this for...

Kirei Kotomine: This is how it ends. A momentary Distance in time.

Well, I guess I might be of a genius of Plane creation than all 25+ Years of MTG creation as it is. Remember, those 4 Color CMDRs weren't made by accident.

In my mind, Breya, Etherium Shaper , Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder , Saskia the Unyielding , Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis , even Atraxa, Praetors' Voice probably are all hiding a secret not even MaRo himself wants to admit: There's hint enough a literal Plane of Existence may be in the works; & all five of these creatures mush have a way for them as to why. Breya seems to represent Full Mastery over the artificial; which makes me want to create a Mono- Artifacts matter deck because of this difference. Yidris is Randomizer OMEGA; he is the PRIME CHAOS LORD; which also makes me want to make a Mono- Chaos Deck. Saksia is nothing short of Aggro on the highest end; even being a warrior of the lands & nothing else. But why can't Mono- do this as well? They too have huge creatures one can use, all w/o relying on Ol' Tetsuko-chan . Ol' Kynaios & Tiro seem to be very peaceful Rulers on the Plane of Theros; Easily Group Hug material that, in such a block, will power up sharing while not giving any opponent any deception until YOU win through piece, making me want to also do a Mono- Group Hug Deck. Finally, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice , otherwise known as: THERE'S GOOD WALKERS IN RED! USE THEM DAMMIT!!! Increase in all kinds of resources are great, but, in my mind, Mono- can do all that as well...

I'll leave it to you guy to find a kind of Mono Color CMDR for each type that was ommited from the 4 color identities. This is want I want to use for the job. That, & I actually plan to make a LUDESIA, SPIDERING WITH SCRAPPING Vorthos Deck instead.

Basically What I'm saying is that, even CMDR 2016 supplied enough ideas for a kind of Block based on 5 Factions, each focusing on a certain kind of Decktype; all in 4 colors:

= Creators of Technology that has never been mastered in other Planes. (Artifacts Matter) = Chaos Lords that can alter Fate Sorry, Young Walker, but you'd lose in a battle of Fate Manipulation from Yidris. XP (CHAOS) and are most likely major villains. = Warriors that don't give a damn about info; killing first, no 20Q. (Aggro) = A peaceful group w/o any intent of violence; but can still win wars w/o ever fighting (Group Hug). = A group capable of the highest degree of Science; & its on manipulation of it. (Counters & Tokens)

Now it is your turn. I actually wanted to do all 5 of these; but in the Mono Color excluding them for each kind. If these ideas for 4 Color Faction Descriptions for a foreseeable Plane are stupid, how would you tell me how such groups would work better. MaRo stated (According to someone...) MTG R&D has no plans for this; but the evidence for this is everywhere!

Now for the Mono Color stuff. Ignoring Mana Qualities for a bit, I'd like to do the following; but I can't seem to find the CMDRS that fit for this:

A Mono- Chaos Deck. A Mono- Aggro Deck. A Mono- Group Hug Deck. A Mono- Counters & Tokens Deck. & A Mono- Artifacts Matter Deck.

I've also thought about making a Top 10 ways can do better in cEDH, Card Creation Challenge. Yep, I'm challenging Me, Myself, & I for this; though I might need help from the cEDH Community as these cards must have qualities WotC have allowed in both , , & , while still being good.

All plans set in stone, Since I want to go anti-wheel (Color Wheel obviously.) on this, what might be your best bet for each Individual Mana Color?

Truly sorry for the huge wall of text; I just wanted to Break the Status Quo of Mana even w/ impossibility...

Can't wait to do the LUDESIA Vorthos deck though! Wish I could make a (Jeskai Way) Deck w/ the safety of doing politics; Trump style; but none of the Cards there are good enough; & don't say anything about Partners...

Thanks for reading. I now know this is an impossibility in Ravnica; but might be somewhere else entirely... Why do the 10 Guilds all hate Nephilims…

& apologies for going off-topic for awhile. I just wanted to do 5 Decks that they each are the worst at...
