n0bunga on Breya: The Last Metalbender

1 day ago

I had thought about her for a bit and thought she was too slow in the grand scheme of things, but I may give her a second viewing. Tezzeret could effectively tutor all my 0-drops, and Daretti has complete synergy with Breya. Nahiri would be interesting for removal and card advantage, but I'd have to figure out what to take out.

I could try running Nahiri, the Harbinger and Pull from Eternity or Gamble, Taking out Metalworker and Thran Dynamo which should balance out the curve. Metalworker hasn't done all too much anymore, and I'm not short on colourless mana.

"Feels way more risky"? Why not do the math?
Let's assume we Gamble with 2-5 other cards in hand. That puts the chance of discarding the card we searched for between 16% (5 other cards) and 33% (2 other cards) - and that's under the assumption that all the other cards are basically irrelevant or at least redundant. Sometimes you will have a much higher chance of Gamble malfunctioning when there are multiple essential pieces in hand that could be discarded.
In contrast, Demonic Consultation exiles the top 6 cards of a library that will typically contain between 80 and 90 cards. That means the chance of exiling the named card is roughly 7%. Of course, the game is actually lost in these 7% of the games, whereas a bad Gamble can be corrected by a Regrowth effect. Still, the chance of Demonic Consultation working and winning the game are clearly better.

Why no Gamble? Sure its somewhat risky but the power is off the charts. I mean you run Demonic Consultation which feels way more risky.

The deck looks fine. Dumping random cards in your bin should be okay as long as you have already deployed enough mana. Competitive EDH players already run Gamble, so I don't see a problem with Draw-4s.

I'd definitely up the Gamble count and find room in the lands for Boseiju, Who Shelters All to protect your Scapeshift. Probably only 1 or 2 copies.
