Hello! I am working on a Breya, Etherium Shaper deck and I am still not content with this deck! If you guys have some staples or commander decks of your on that would be great! Here is the outline for my deck.

Delta-117, your post is nothing but impressive. 75 minutes is alot of time to dedicate to a single post. Thank you.

Back in 2016, I wanted to acquire an Atraxa deck for myself, but unfortunately she was completely sold out everywhere. I had to settle for Breya, Etherium Shaper and Yidris, Maelstrom Weilder. Fast forward to 2018, and at a new LGS I spotted an Atraxa precon just sitting in the window. I asked if she was for sale, and ended up trading a Engineered Explosives and paying roughly 20ish bucks I think. I was lucky, because I wasn't the only person interested. I really wanted to build a deck surrounding the Praetors, because well...they're just really cool cards. I picked up a few at another LGS...but for this deck? I had plans.

Also, yes playing this deck is alot like archenemy. I am quickly voted Persona non grata, and the whole table quickly swoops in to destroy and dismantle all of my tools...while other less "scary" decks establish better boardstates, and eventually dominate the table into submission. Every game needs a villain, and I happily fill that role. And at the very least I have fun with it. I can't help but joke when I infect the whole table.

LANDS: The bond lands are cool and all, I just feel hesitant to include non-typed duals. Also the drawback is that those lands are duds if I ever play a 1v1 game. Admittedly it'd be rare when that happens, but it is definitely a possibility. Also,they can't be tutored. I'll admit the manabase is far from perfect, but i'll do some thinking (using your suggestions of course) and revise the list. What's funny is that I have a physical copy of Inkmoth Nexus in the deck already, but it's not on the digital list lol. Thanks for pointing that out.

Steady Progress is there primarily to keep tempo and increase poison counters on players, and drawing an extra card before the beginning of a turn is always a win. Now, Reliquary Tower is pretty niche. My deck doesn't get me a lot of draw unfortunately (something i'm working on), and the rare chance that Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur stays on the board long enough to really make Tower relevant...would be a surprise to me. I have a 2019 Reliquary Tower promo of it in my trade binder, I think i'll hold onto it and maybe do some experimenting.

Gavony Township seems like a really cool include. Given that most infect creatures need an increase in power and toughness placing +1/+1 counters on all of them in one fell swoop could be just the solution i'm looking for. I'll find a way to include it in the list.

CREATURES: I have a Phyrexian Swarmlord, just been trying to figure out how to work it into the deck. Corpse Cur has definitely been something of a dud where there have been just so few valid targets to bring back from the grave. My only qualm is that the deck needs some form of recursion, but Phyrexian Swarmlord is the bomb that this deck definitely needs to have a strong board state in the late game. I'll go ahead with your suggestion of swapping out the Putrefy, and see what happens. As for Champion of Lambholt, given that +1/+1 counters will never take center stage i'm hesitant to include her despite the benefits of the evasion she provides. Blightsteel Colossus is cool. Really, really cool. On theme, and intimidating- however the high CMC (even for this deck) just makes it unappealing to me.

Your other suggestion of Conqueror's Flail offers good protection (at least on my turn) and can potentially pump my creature up to +4/+4. If I see one, i'll pick it up and experiment with it. Also, I took a look at both lists and both Become Immense, Vines of Vastwood, and Mutagenic Growth (the flavor!) all caught my eye. All cards are instant speed, and can definitely make a player who begrudgingly accepts 1 poison counter to get far more than they bargained for. I want to figure out what to cut in order to include these beauties. Now, for Spellskite I like it. Full of flavor, and would be potentially a great albeit temporary defense. I just don't know what to cut for it. But the suggestion of Hatred really gave me pause. That's cool. It's applicable both early and late game...and can potentially end a player immediately for a fee of 9 to 17 life. Nobody would see it coming and it would be brutal. I'll definitely see if I can pick one of those up.

So on the topic of planeswalkers...I briefly considered including a Karn of some sort...but they deviate too far from theme. Honestly, I'm not really much of a fan of the mechanic. I have a few decks that have some Planeswalkers in them...but i feel really meh towards them. Just meh. Doubling Season would be great if this were a superfriends deck, but that is definitely something I want to stay away from. I'm just not a fan of those builds. As to your question about that Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, the answer is yes. I have an actual copy of that card. Long story short I was at my LGS playing EDH with a friend and I mentioned that I wanted a copy of that card, but it was 1 - very difficult to find, and 2 - very expensive. Then he just casually mentions that he had one - for trade no less. For a moment I was dumbfounded, but then he reminded me that he was a judge. Funny I didn't pay attention to that. So, with not a moment to spare I whipped out my trade binder and said "do your worst". The follow list below is what he picked up (it's a long one):

It was quite the trade. My friend took my juicy trade binder to town. But in the end, it was all worth it. I look forward to more discussion on this deck. I'll post more of my thoughts later. Thanks for commenting.

I have been mulling over the concept of mardu artifacts and was wondering if there is any real payoff to adding white and black to red artifacts (and if it can be done reasonably without adding blue). I feel like there should be something worth it since esper is so strong in artifacts.

I think it would be very strong with a graveyard strategy with artifact creatures.

Is it worth doing? Do you have any ideas for good payoff cards? Am I bull headed for wanting to try without blue for Breya, Etherium Shaper?

Literally anything is good. As mentioned, besides the 100 card singleton, it has nothing in common with Commander:

1/ Everything legal in Vintage is legal in Highlander - you get to play a lot of broken stuff that you cannot in Commander.

2/ Points list - but not every single broken thing at once. The list works great at curbing power level and is diligently curated. Do you want to run Flash and Protean Hulk? Congrats that is ten points and you cannot play any other pointed cards.

3/ No commander indentity restriction - ever wanted to run Birthing Pod in your Breya, Etherium Shaper deck? Well, in CanHan you can! Splashes are extremely common.

4/ 1v1, 20 life - a lot of aggro stragies are invalidated in commander just because you have to work through 120 life. A lot of infinite combo strategies available in Commander are invalidated in CanHan, because there are no other opponents to focus on. Also, you single target Counterspell in commander does nothing to 2 out of 3 opponents. Here, its effects are amplified.

5/ Literally anything is possible - decks are limitless, viable strategies are wide. It is a brewer's paradise.

For example, to counteract enpc's lack of combos in the deck, here is one with 15:

Jeskai combo control

well in that case I would take a serious look at Breya, Etherium Shaper. she seems to be exactly what you're looking for. Also, you might need to do a little better than 75% when fighting zur doomsday consistently, because that's a tiered cEDH deck. a funny counter to it is playing Tome Scour for the memes.

I also apologize, I missed the budget in your description.

A well tuned (and well piloted) Breya, Etherium Shaper deck is both very good and very expensive.

That's fine. I just didn't want you to discount Zur if you were unaware. I really like esper so Zur is one of the ones i would suggest and so is Breya, Etherium Shaper. But they are both combo and you said you like aggro and control so they probably won't make the cut. Edric, Spymaster of Trest might be something you would be interested in though.

HAH! love the decklist +1! Breya, Etherium Shaper?

Mystic Monastery, Crumbling Necropolis, Jungle Shrine, and Seaside Citadel might need a spot too!
