Dramatic Reversal Discussion

MTOlesen on Breya, combo queen.

A few additions, and cards you could take out.

Additions: Daretti, Scrap Savant , Storm the Vault  Flip, Krark-Clan Ironworks , Skullclamp , Mana Crypt , Staff of Domination if you dont have anything against tutors: Enlightened Tutor , Whir of Invention , Kuldotha Forgemaster and Demonic Tutor

Cards i would take out: I would first take out Time vault and Tolarian Academy because they're not commander legal. I also don't like March of the Machines because it exposes your artifacts to creature removal/boardwipes. I would also take out the signets, because they don't really do enough. I would also take out Sapphire Medallion and Ruby Medallion , because you deck is mostly based on colorless artifacts.

Some other combos to get unlimited mana that you could put in the deck:

Power Artifact with Grim Monolith or Basalt Monolith , cause even though you can't copy the mana ability, you can copy the untap ability. Once you have resolved the first untap trigger, while the original trigger is on the stack, tap it for mana. This will net you mana, and you can do this as many times as you want. Another option is: Isochron Scepter with Dramatic Reversal , you only need to have mana rocks that tap for 3 or more, and you have infinity mana.

Otherwise a really nice deck!

Here's a link for how i would make the deck: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/28-03-19-bAm-breya-etherium-shaper/

Beguiler of Wills

It That Betrays


Arcane Laboratory

Dream Fracture


Body Double


Estrid's Invocation

And a few others.


As Foretold

Ancestral Vision


Venser, Shaper Savant

Cryptic Command

Pact of Negation

Tidespout Tyrant

Vesuvan Doppelganger

Dramatic Reversal

Copy Enchantment

Estrid's Invocation seemed kind of anemic given how few legal targets it had, replaced with Copy Enchantment to hopefully have more good targets.

Replaced AEtherspouts with AEtherize for slightly more Mana efficiency.

Replaced It That Betrays with Tidespout Tyrant , without other ways to make opponents sacrifice permanents, It That Betrays just functions as a 12/12 beater.

Replaced Body Double with Vesuvan Doppelganger . My playgroup Has a LOT of exile effects and graveyard hate, so I couldn't find a consistent source of targets for Body Double.

Added Dramatic Reversal for the infinite combo with Isochron Scepter + Sensei's Divining Top (tap top, hold priority, cast reversal, repeat)

Replaced Dismiss With Cryptic Command

bmbowdish while yes paradox does combo with isochron scepter really well, it doesn't really go infinite unless you have something like a Dramatic Reversal under it because you would still have to pay the 2 mana. It is not as simple as a two card combo like Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Walking Ballista even though it would go infinite if you had mana rocks.

Start with Snapcaster Mage vs Mission Briefing . Snapcaster Mage forces a target to be picked for flashback, so that means your opponent can respond. The big responses would be Deathrite Shaman , Faerie Macabre , and Noxious Revival . Mission Briefing Targets all upon resolution, which means your opponent can’t respond to get rid of your card. Mission Briefing also allows alternate costs to be cast on cards such as Mindbreak Trap , Noxious Revival , Cyclonic Rift , etc. Snapcaster Mage does not allow that, because flashback is an alternate cost. Mission Briefing also does not suffer from Torpor Orb effects from stax decks. The downside to Mission Briefing is that it is one blue mana more, and not a creature to block. The blue mana is a valid argument, the creature aspect is less so. If you are playing in a creature meta, yeah it is relevant. However, if you are playing in a Food Chain meta, or a Flash Protean Hulk meta, or a Doomsday meta, or a reanimator meta, or a storm meta, or a The Gitrog Monster meta, it does not matter. The two commanders I can think of that you can blowout with a Snapcaster Mage body are Najeela, the Blade-Blossom , and Tymna the Weaver . They aren’t popular in my meta, all the other decks are, so I will suffer paying that additional blue mana. Rhystic Study has always been lackluster. People are always willing to pay the cost, and all it ever does is put a target on my head. “Are you going to pay” gets old, and it forces me to keep track and announce my trigger, which gets old. You don’t want to be a target, you want to stay under the radar. I will gladly play Search for Azcanta  Flip, or Verity Circle , or even Compost . It allows me to get card advantage without annoying the table. The Nexus of Fate is in response to my meta eagerly playing Praetor's Grasp . They will gladly target me, exile Isochron Scepter or Dramatic Reversal and then either use it, or never use it. Either way, I’m in a bind, because I now can’t generate infinite mana for myself to win. This allows at least some form of out. In any case, it is still in test phase. Enter the Infinite is still the way I want to go, and it works. Like you said, you can loop it with Mystical Tutor Seasons Past and Nexus of Fate and fourteen mana. When I get grasped, I haven’t had a chance to try to win this way. So, I don’t know if this is the way to go yet, but it something I have been looking into. A hot take would be cutting Chrome Mox . I have found that I don’t like exiling a spell for the artifact. Have been trying Exploration in place of it to see if it can work.

Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal with a bunch of mana rocks (including at least one that makes a blue mana) lets you draw and cast your entire deck. With the new Jace, as mentioned above, you now win the game.

ShaperSavant on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

2 weeks ago

Food Chain is one of the strongest infinite mana combos; the big other contender is Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal . It has a few notable upsides: it costs 3 mana total with some board presence (vs. 4), doesn't require non summoning-sick creatures or artifact critical mass, it doesn't use the activated abilities of artifacts or creatures and thus is not impacted by Cursed Totem or Null Rod, is a mana ability that is difficult to respond to in some contexts, is an enchantment which is difficult for black or red to interact with, etc. One of the biggest draws of the Food Chain builds is that single cards tutor both halves of the combo: e.g. Demonic Consultation exiles Eternal Scourge on the way to Food Chain . Food Chain also gets cantripping tutors for the exile creatures a la Manipulate Fate .

Isochron's main upsides are being able to use the mana for non-creatures, and getting outlet commanders with higher utility. Artifact tutors are much less powerful than the exile tutors, which means less tutor density overall.

They're both quite strong with both having slight tradeoffs that make them worthy of sitting around the same power bracket.

New Jace will likely see a good amount of play in Laboratory Maniac centric builds like Consultation Kess.

The new Jace. Wielder of Mysteries lets you just loop proteus staff on Fblthp for the win once you have Dramatic Reversal and Isochron Scepter . I was just wondering if this combo actually worked, nice to know it does the way I thought it did!

@Kiyomei To answer your first question, City of Solitude obviously shuts down a large part of what makes Rashmi tick. Graveyard hate can prevent recursion and potentially exile win cons.

Setting Sanctum Prelate to 2 would hurt us the most. A majority of our answers and win cons have a cmc of 2 including Isochron Scepter , Dramatic Reversal , and Reality Shift . We can still recover if we draw 1cmc answers .
