Fieldmist Borderpost Discussion

What about Fieldmist Borderpost?
You can think of them as land that enters the battlefield tapped, but their upside is that they count as a white permanent for View from Above.
The downside is that it's an artifact, but in modern, most of the artifact destruction I see is in the sideboard, and a few borderposts usually aren't worth boarding in.
It is worth considering.

First of all if your ramping into door to nothingness you either want duel lands or tri lands and Mana rocks such as the various border posts or signets. Secondly you want a secondary win condition, and my advice is (staying in colourless theme) Darksteel Reactor. Although slow, many people will try to work out ways to eliminate it because it appears to be a threat. Finally you need more blockers to help protect your plan. Keeping theme, Etched Champion and Myr Servitor fit nicely here.

Well, to use the borderposts more efficiently, you might want to up the number of basic lands in your deck, maybe cutting Scoured Barrens or a Tranquil Cove. Going up to 4 Evolving Wilds could be helpful too to make sure you can get all 3 colors. I don't think I'd go overboard on borderposts, but 2 Fieldmist Borderpost and one Mistvein Borderpost seems reasonable. Also, if you want another two-mana removal-esque spell that's also multicolored, Curse of Chains and Pillory of the Sleepless are cool. It all depends on what works best during testing.

Re: Azorius Chancery,
It's not always a bad card to play, it just depends a lot on your meta, really. It's slower than a lot of other lands, but if your meta isn't hyper aggressive, or if people don't run land destruction, then that doesn't matter as much. For me, however, I've replaced the three ally color bounce lands with Fieldmist Borderpost, Mistvein Borderpost, and Veinfire Borderpost since they are not only artifacts for any abilities that care about that, but they can be hard cast on later turns if they're drawn, or can be cast in a similar way to the bounce lands early on.
I will also add in that I think that Ichor Wellspring is better for this commander than Night's Whisper considering that it's an artifact you WANT to sacrifice to Breya's ability, so unlike the previous comment, it's not just "draw two cards" but it's "draw two cards and, choose one: deal 3 damage to target player, target creature gets -4/-4 till end of turn, or you gain 5 life"
As far as my own suggestions: with only 4 swamps in your deck, turning on your Tainted Isle is going to be tough. If you want the black/blue land, Drowned Catacomb is probably better, but even better still I would say is Inventors' Fair since it can tutor up artifacts for you. Marionette Master is definitely a card to consider since it can have an opponent lose 8 life every time you use Breya's ability, and that card alone has won me games. Also I'm not seeing that you have many ways to get your artifacts back once you sacrifice them. I'd suggest at least a Goblin Welder as not only will he get back the things you want, but he pairs nicely with your Pia's Revolution

I'd say you need Altar of the Brood, example -
Turn 1: Island, tap for Hedron Crab
Turn 3: Evolving Wilds, opponent mills 3 from crab + 1 from Alter, crack the Wilds and fetch, opponent mills 3 from crab + 1 from Alter, you still have 2 mana 1 from XXXX Borderpost and 1 Island to play with...
Also I think the borderposts, for a splash of white or black would make sense, heck they provide extra ramp anyway... Also Dream Twist, Thought Scour and Drowner Initiate (extra salt the borderposts are blue) will help mill and Shadow of Doubt can shut down a fetch land or tutor. Last thought Jace Beleren might be the better Jace here...

Most of the time Spatial Contortion might as well be Vapor Snag.
You also need options to push your damage through, O-Naginata, Vorrac Battlehorns, Chariot of Victory or Haunted Cloak. You need one of these because Akroma's Memorial will get removed, if you even get it into play.
Renegade Freighter will probably do more for you than Lodestone Golem and the Treasure Mage can crew it.
Thoughtcast over Thirst for Knowledge is probably the right call too.
I could add some non-budget ideas too, but this seems like enough for the moment, hope it helps.

Oh jeeze, I just read Mistvein Borderpost entirely for once. No wonder I was recommended the Borderposts for my try at this. Definitely should swap in Fieldmist Borderpost for some of the big artifacts like Dreamstone Hedron, Akroma's Memorial, and Hedron Archive. The 'Talisman of' artifacts too. Oh man, such great recommendations from lagotripha.
