Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain Discussion

Glad to have been of some sort of help! I can assure you, Goblin Welder , Feldon of the Third Path and Daretti, Scrap Savant are beyond awesome! Your graveyard becomes even more a toolbox, to abuse especially with ETBs.
Speaking of ETBs, Combustible Gearhulk is really solid: card draw in red and a 6/6 first strike for 6. Nice.
Mass recursion like Scrap Mastery is fun, that's why I run it along Open the Vaults and Roar of Reclamation ... But even more fun if it also makes your opponents sacrifice their artifacts to put nothing on the field. Not to mention,it also gets rid of things like Darksteel Colossus or Colossus of Akros .

Aetherflux Reservoir would be a nice fit in the deck. It can generate a ton of life and also finish your opponents.

Glad to hear ya kicking ass! No worries, good to see ya tuning your bae! Same with me I'm always altering and min/maxing all my decks! I been tweaking and slowly accumulating foils for all my decks haha!
I have an update for you as well! For your gf, the base build I have on my page for Meren is pretty degenerate...This past Saturday I was locking down 2 Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain decks as well as an Arcum Dagsson deck. Mindslicer MVP as well as Culling the Weak . So happy that I rebuilt her :P
Keep me posted with your games it's refreshing to hear!

To break it down for you, your top picks for what you want to do with the deck are going to be Arcum, Breya, and Jhoira.
Arcum Dagsson is the most linear of the three and perhaps the easiest to pilot, which is really friendly to learn how to play it especially when you're not dedicated to exclusively playing that deck amongst other decks you like to rotate through. The primary combo package is incredibly straightforward, but because of that it may become boring to win that way every time after racking up a couple wins with him, so I'd keep that in mind.
Breya, Etherium Shaper is perhaps the most powerful with the most combo potential out of all of them. She is more consistent with access to black for tutors, and she has more paths to winning in her arsenal. This deck will be the most expensive to boot and optimize, but it is very much your strongest candidate for what you want out of an artifact-based deck. There are a myriad of ways to win in the deck and it's simply a blast to pilot.
If you want to play stax combo, then you want to play Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain . A bit different from the others mentioned, and I've found that the deck is very heavily reliant on her being on the battlefield for her to function (which can be said about any commander really), but it's done in such a way that there are so many places to interact with her combo that it's easier to stop her momentum than it is for others. The stax of course helps with disrupting interaction, but she can fizzle and run out of gas if she's not on the field since she is really just used as a draw engine for the deck and without her on the field you won't be consistently drawing into the things you'd like to see. Regardless, she is still powerful and has more ways to win unlike Arcum, but is less consistent than Breya.
If you're looking for a deck that will always be fun to play and you like to have multiple ways to win at your disposal, I recommend Breya or Jhoira. Depending on your playstyle preference, it really comes down to one or the other. I am more of an advocate of Breya if you couldn't tell by now, I really think you will have the most success with her and she will always prove to keep things interesting every time you pilot her. I think Arcum is the most forgiving to play, but the fact that you have a few other higher tier commander decks leads me to believe you are pretty experienced with EDH, so Arcum wouldn't be my top pick for you.
Best of luck to you! I hope my advice helps and I'd like to hear back from you when you decide on a commander to build. Feel free to post a decklist in this thread or on my wall if you need help in regard to specific card suggestions. You can also private message me if you want to enable chat. Cheers!

I am probably not the best person to answer this question as I am a casual EDH player and haven’t really delved into the cEDH world, but of those three Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain looks like best value with the card draw, I know a lot of people build that deck to run a ton of 0 cost artifacts. I have had some matches against Daretti, Scrap Savant that weren’t super tuned up decks that I got wrecked by a Meteor Golem and a Wurmcoil Engine rotating back and forth.

Over the last few years I have worked to build 3 EDH decks which I am proud of, Karador, Atraxa and Windgrace. While these are strong and fun to play, unfortunately none are quite top tier power level. I am currently working on my fourth edh deck, which I want to be both artifact based and able to compete with the best of the best decks, my most competitive deck yet. Currently I am stuck between Arcum Daggson, Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain and possibly daretti, scrap servant. Which artifact commander do you think is the most competitive and why? Thanks for the advice :)

Combos: Infinite Mana:
Krark-Clan Ironworks + Scrap Trawler + Myr Retriever + Sol Ring or Mana Vault or Grim Monolith or Mox Opal . Add Pyrite Spellbomb , Mind Stone , Solemn Simulacrum , Commander's Sphere , or Ichor Wellspring to draw your deck. Pyrite Spellbomb and Mycosynth Lattice on board or Mox Opal lets you do infinite damage with this loop too. Hangarback Walker in this loop makes infinite 1/1 tokens. Walking Ballista in this loop does infinite damage. Aetherflux Reservoir on board leads to infinite life (because the loop takes casting 3+ spells) and thus infinite damage.

I'm playing Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain , and wondered if I am able to use Spawnsire of Ulamog to cast say World Breaker . Am I able to because It's outside of the game or does commander color identity rules restrict that somehow? I don't know the rulings on that.
