Daretti, Scrap Savant Discussion
5 days ago
I still say Daretti, Scrap Savant is better :P. However, this is still a pretty good deck. I know I could activate some combos with Magistrate's Scepter in my own deck with Rings of Brighthearth and Contagion Engine, though they seem a little complicated. You made me reconsider Mindslaver as well. I mean, I liked it when it was in my deck, but I don't know if I wasn't paying attention to it or would focus my strategy elsewhere, but I just never seemed to use it much. Anyway, you certainly gave me some things to consider, despite having different commanders.

Yes, red actually does bring enough to the table to make Breya, Etherium Shaper an excellent choice. Cards like: Reckless Fireweaver, Trash for Treasure, Daretti, Scrap Savant, Hellkite Tyrant just to name a few because there's some very good interactions to work with in red. Red acts in a very different manner when incorporated into her deck and it's quite fun and unexpected.
That's not to take away from Sen Triplets. That card is a stand-alone card. As commander you don't even need to build around it and have a completely different strategy in the 99. You could include it in any deck as a 99 that runs Esper colors and always be happy to draw it.
You have no bad choice here. Breya gives you more options to choose from, that's about it.

I can't see the Step 1 "ramp with mana rocks" happening if you run so few mana rocks. You are missing 4 artifacts with cmc 0: Mox Diamond, Mox Opal, Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal. You can play Voltaic Key to generate more mana with everything that produces 2 or more. You can play Talisman of Indulgence and Talisman of Dominance AND izzet, dimir and rakdos signet...and don't forget Grim Monolith for additional speed. If you play all these, you can cut 4-6 lands and play 30-32 in total.
I would even suggest using Simian Spirit Guide for additional acceleration. You definitely need Wheel of Fortune and Windfall to refill your hand quickly...even Timetwister but your surely don't have one. Memory Jar is great as well, best if you play Goblin Welder and Daretti, Scrap Savant in addition to silas renn. Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas is really good if you have enough artifacts in your deck. if you put in all the artifact mana, he should be in the deck as well.

Pia Nalaar is chronically underwhelming in Commander format. Unfortunately, there simply aren't enough ways to abuse one thopter token that will have an adequate effect on a game of commander. But, two thopters... now that's pretty insane.
cough Breya, Etherium Shaper cough
I would highly recommend reconstructing this deck into a Tiny Leaders deck. Very similar formats, and Pia's thopter goes much further with only 25 life to start. (I believe that's the starting life total, I don't recall exactly)
However, if you do insist on keeping this a commander deck, I'd throw in a healthy amount of dredge and artifact graveyard shenanigans. A couple notable cards to that end include Grinding Station and Mesmeric Orb. Additionally, if you don't switch the commander to Daretti, Scrap Savant, (who is extremely good as a commander) then add a healthy amount of artifact reanimation, namely Scarecrone, Lifeline, Trash for Treasure, etc. I'd also add some good token generators, i.e. Myr Battlesphere, Myr Turbine, and Thopter Assembly (which I see you already have). Add as many token generators as you can, primarily because they fuel other cards, such as Ashnod's Altar and Krark-Clan Ironworks, which can help you lay down your larger creatures. Then, you reanimate them, get the tokens again, and repeat the process. They also provide handy blockers and fuel pia's second ability. (Metalworker and Quicksilver Amulet work as well to lay down cards like Blightsteel, but worker is a bit pricey.) Speaking of ol' BS, having Warstorm Surge otb when blightsteel enters one-shots an opponent. Just fyi ;)
As for some just generally good cards for this style of deck, I'd recommend Inventors' Fair, Kuldotha Forgemaster, Hedron Archive, Blinkmoth Urn, Voltaic Construct, and Myr Retriever are all great cards. For more synergistic artifact suggestions, I'd take a look at some Karn, Silver Golem EDH lists and some Daretti, Scrap Savant EDH lists. A deck with Pia at at the head would run a lot of the same cards and work similarly to those, I'd imagine. I've never seen anyone try to use Pia in EDH before, so bravo, good sir, exploring new territory. Good luck with the deck!

Reverie42, thank you for the comment and suggestions! I actually had Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient in the decklist until recently, but I found that most of the time I didn't even think about him or would get depressed when I'd draw him. He is likely better suited as a commander, I agree, but I really prefer the flexibility Daretti, Scrap Savant provides. Plus, like you said, his ultimate is badass. I have way too much fun playing with him as my commander to even consider a different card. If I did choose to mix things up at some point, though, I'd actually probably take my artifacts and change colors to a Sydri, Galvanic Genius deck, but Daretti still has my heart these days.
Thanks for the props on Colossus! I actually think he's a pretty cool dude. I threw him in after buying him for my Animar, Soul of Elements deck I used to have, and he has stuck in Daretti ever since then. As for Feldon of the Third Path, you might be surprised to hear I didn't think much of him when I played him either. I think I replaced him with Scarecrone, and while I'm not exactly in love with that card, I still think I like it more. Heart of Kiran's inclusion in the current list is the product of procuring one and wanting to try it out. It's okay, but I'm planning to replace it in the next wave of revisions.
Kurkesh and Feldon also go against my current plan to include as few non-artifact creatures as humanly possible in this deck, unless I deem them absolutely necessary. That way I can maximize the artifact shenanigans.

Rzepkanut: I prefer Dack Fayden in the "loot 2 per turn" slot, because his -2 is more relevant I suspect, and he's slightly less mana. However, Daretti, Scrap Savant is a good budget replacement for Jace, the Mind Sculptor (oddly enough). Thanks for the idea! :)
flluid: The most jank of secret tech! ;) I even have one lying around...
tophertbone12: I'm on the fence for Distant Melody. I was going to play it (was in the maindeck), but I cut it for draw that could be used even without already having Locusts in play. I want to find a slot for it, but what would you cut? (And if you like the deck, feel free to +1!)
Wasadia123: Ooh, I like this idea! Thank you! :)
wereotter: How did I forget him??? He needs a slot. What should I cut? ;) - and if you like the list, you're always welcome to +1! haha
Msg_magic: Seems too high CMC, unless I'm missing something?
Podder: My feelings are that I SHOULD be running them, but I generally hate counterspells so I don't include them. As this deck becomes more tuned they'll probably become necessary (since it IS a relatively dedicated combo deck and reliant on the commander)...
Crivaro: I like the idea, thanks! :) If you like the deck, +1s are always a kind gift ;)
Thank you all, once again, for your invaluable help! This deck wouldn't be half as good without you all.

Eldrazi Displacer is best seen as a combo piece, so you only really drop it when you have the pieces necessary to win. Mainly, you would be using it with Krark-Clan Ironworks/Ashnod's Altar to get infinite ETB/Death Triggers. Even if you don't add it in, I would highly recommend finding room for Ashnod's Altar, as the added redundancy is crucial for a number of the combos you already have in the deck.
Personally, I find Hanna, Ship's Navigator too slow to consider running in even a half-serious list. While capable of generating loads of value if not instantly removed, you have access to far stronger recursion options like Scrap Mastery and Daretti, Scrap Savant.
