GS10 on The BREEya to My SCREEya

1 week ago

I've actually been pretty consistent at outpacing/ignoring Narset, Enlightened Master with my own Breya deck. I didn't really expect this deck to be that powerful, but it is usually!

Narset was my absolute best deck, meant for those revenge kills after a few salty defeats, or to play against more cutthroat playgroups, but Breya has proven just as powerful most of the times, and a lot more fun for everybody, in comparison. I've had people borrow my Narset deck against my Breya deck and I won, whenever I didn't end up mana screwed.

And even if you don't go all in with a big budget for those expensive cards, the deck is actually pretty affordable. I'm shifting my deck a bit more into what yours look like, with less creatures and less token generators, to favor some additional control - if I'm comboing off it doesn't matter if I have 2 Thopters or 20 on the battlefield by that time, it matters if I am still alive. So countermagic, all sorts of removal, Baby Jace, and Torrential Gearhulk, instead of big bombs like Hellkite Tyrant and such. I really wanted to make Blightsteel Colossus work, but then I faced a Sen Triplets deck, filled with Acquire and other theft cards like that. I ended up having to get rid of Blightsteel Colossus 3 times in one game and I still won, but it's more of a liability than a game ender and it's the perfect example of why the more controlling route is probably the best for Breya.

I really liked your list, well deserved upvote ;)

Feel free to check out my own as well, I'm thinking about those changes to my own list so any suggestion is welcome!

Seems like a fun deck. Here are a few suggestions:

Aggravated Assault for the combo with Savage Ventmaw (definitely depends on the playgroup).

Hellkite Tyrant is a blowout against an artifact heavy deck, and can act as an alternate wincon. Even on its own, it's not bad to steal opponent's artifact ramp, etc.

Cryptic Gateway, Quicksilver Amulet and Elvish Piper are good ways to cheat high CMC dragons into play.

Gratuitous Violence to double all damage you deal, and Berserkers' Onslaught is a copy of Atarka's effect if you need it for whatever reason.

Warstorm Surge can act as removal or burn every time you play a creature.

Chaos Warp is usually good removal.

Insurrection wins games, simple as that.

Delta-117 on Breya..... Because why not?

There's also Hellkite Tyrant as an option.

All good. If most of your creatures are alos artifacts, I would recommnd potentially replacing Ashnod's Altar with Krark-Clan Ironworks. A good win condition you could look at running as well is Hellkite Tyrant + Mycosynth Lattice. Especailly if you use somethign like Kuldotha Forgemaster to deploy the lattice just before combat damage is done.

Strionic Resonator doubles the ability of Yasova and Thada Adel and should definitely be in. If your GF likes Thada Adel i have a deck with her as the commander that's a lot of fun, Serial Shoplifting.

You have to be able to break through shroud/hexproof. Arcane Lighthouse or artifact destruction maybe? Hellkite Tyrant can steal all the boots/greaves and fits with the stealing theme. Cultural Exchange can steal Shrouded creatures because it targets the player, not the creature.

Blade of Selves could be pretty funny and destroys a legendary if that's your goal.

City of Shadows could be another sac outlet but you seem to have plenty of those already.

A good combo would be Hellkite Tyrant and Mycosynth Lattice its a fun win-con while even if mycosynth gets destroyed you can still mess up a artifact deck.

Use Tooth and Nail to get Blightsteel Colossus with Xenagos, God of Revels thats allmost a guaranteed loss for someone.

Same thing with Tooth and Nail for Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Zealous Conscripts for infinite creature to insta win

Summoning Trap to mess with a blue deck and maby win or help reach that goal
