Hi Again xXImpetuSXx,

Ho, indeed, my bad. :(Sorry, I didn't memorize the Ban and Restricted List. :(

Thanks for pointing that out, you saved me some money mate !

Hi Again ghoul_Legion

I have 3 Day of Judgment in my stock right now, and I think one of my buddies got a spare Supreme Verdict around.

Yeh, Aurelia, the Warleader RRWW and Akroma, Angel of Fury RRR aretricky to play. I often face the situation where I'm missing White or Red Manas. That's why I put mostly two-colors-lands and Bounces-lands ( Izzet Boilerworks etc etc )

Even Entreat the Angels without Miracle is just unplayable.

That foil Ral Zarek and Platinum Angel are gifts, I know they don't belong in this deck, but I play them for their sentimental value ( Yeah that's not optimized sorry :( )

Yeah, I messed up the lands ratio as well, sorry. I'll fix that in a few days.

I don't want to annoy you with tons of questions heh. Your advices are extremely precious, for I'm not an hardcore MTG Player and your advices are extremely pertinent / relevent !!

Thanks again for your time !!

Also, are you sure you wan to run the Azorius Chancery, Izzet Boilerworks, and Boros Garrison, they are such cheap duel lands because they slow you down. For example if you have an island and one of these lands in your starting hand you play the island turn one. Play one of these turn 2 and have no mana for turn 2; then, you have a total of 3 mana turn 3. Which is the same as normal, but with only two lands instead of 3. The advantage they give is you need less land cards to be successful, but they slow you down between turns.

Lightning Runner isn't even really constructed-playable in Standard, much less Modern.

More generally, this deck is closer to Standard than it is to Modern. The Energy cards obviously have to come from Kaladesh, but the overall card quality isn't high enough to stand up to a typical Modern deck. Also, you need to consolidate your cards, aiming for 3- and 4-ofs rather than almost exclusively 1- and 2-ofs.

I would recommend starting out by taking some cards from Affinity (https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/modern-affinity-8972#paper), many of which aren't actually very expensive. Memnite, Signal Pest, and Vault Skirge are great inclusions (Signal Pest in particular) without breaking the bank. Thoughtcast is similarly helpful, Cranial Plating does everything you want, and Darksteel Citadel is a great way to get artifacts out quickly with a low opportunity cost.

All of the following creatures are way too slow for Modern, so you should cut them: Embraal Gear-Smasher (your opponent will just Bolt it), Lightning Runner (too fragile for its cost), Separatist Voidmage (plus doesn't have any synergy with your deck), and Watchful Automaton (you'll have enough card draw with Thoughtcast and Thopter Spy Network that Scrying isn't necessary).

Also cut Consulate Turret, Jayemdae Tome, Mobile Garrison (you don't have any big creatures so untapping one to keep as a blocker isn't helpful), and Renegade Map (you're a two-color deck so you don't need fixing. Even Swiftwater Cliffs, Izzet Boilerworks, and/or Shivan Reef should be sufficient mana-fixing for a budget deck without having to spend spells on it.

For your Instants, I'm not convinced Metallic Rebuke is better than good 'ol Mana Leak. You can potentially cast it for just 1 mana, but that requires you to leave artifacts untapped and this deck's artifacts are mostly artifact creatures.

If it's within your budget, switching Swiftwater Cliffs and especially Izzet Boilerworks for lands that don't etb tapped would be very worth it, especially if they were dual colored. It would actually even work for basic lands. The only real advantage of having them (except Temple of Epiphany) is that it balances the colors, but you don't have a single card in your main deck that has more than 2 required mana symbols. However, you have 8 lands that etb tapped, 2 of which return a land to your hand, and that will really slow this deck down. I think the biggest flaw in the entire deck are that it seems like you're afraid to use basic lands. I mean, the non land deck is awesome, one that I aspire to replicate, but you don't need to be so careful about your land composition.

More Cranial Plating, its amazing. I would suggest Master of Etherium over Runed Servitor because your opponents dont get cards. I would remove the tooth and scale unless you think they are amazing. In their place I suggest Steel Overseer, as it still buffs your stuff and Vault Skirge. Also Springleaf Drum is great for getting colored mana too. Another thing would be to replace Izzet Boilerworks with Glimmervoid if you feel like it? If not, Spirebluff Canal could be good. Is this on a budget?,if not Arcbound Ravager and Mox Opal are affinity staples. Galvanic Blast is also amazing usually, and if you add Glimmervoid and Springleaf Drum, Dispatch is great removal. Hope you enjoy the help

Flagellum, thanks for continuing the discussion here and answering questions while I was away.

The consensus seems to be to cut Mycosynth Lattice for more tutors. I agree with this; Lattice is great with Breya, but is ultimately expendable.

I'm cutting Lattice, Master Transmuter and Reshape for more unconditional tutors, Demonic Tutor, Gamble and Insidious Dreams. I prefer to include more unconditional tutors because they can all get Arcum Dagsson, artifact specific tutors can't. Transmuter is great, but her price is starting to increase. Pretty soon I will have to choose between using her or Dagsson and in my opinion Dagsson is better.

This change gives this deck a lot of more versatile tutor options:

  1. Demonic Tutor
  2. Diabolic Intent
  3. Gamble
  4. Insidious Dreams
  5. Fabricate

  6. Arcum Dagsson
  7. Kuldotha Forgemaster
  8. Tezzeret the Seeker

I've also cut the Bounce lands, Azorius Chancery and Izzet Boilerworks for more basics, 1x Island and Swamp.

Vinman, this deck is not based on The Last Metal Bender. Both decks were created about the same time, one month ago. This deck started as Breya's Thoptershop with more of a Thopter theme and has evolved into now focusing on combo with Breya. From the beginning I wanted to make the best viable budget Breya deck starting with a $100 budget and then increasing to $200 because $100 is not good enough. I applaud The Last Metal Bender's creator, but $2200+ for a Commander deck is crazy. If you're looking for a budget version of The Last Metal Bender this deck is not that, but it's a fine budget Breya combo deck.
