Sharuum the Hegemon Discussion

Cyclonic Rift Is a staple in any blue deck
If you want to go more combo focused
I see this a lot with Sharuum the Hegemon decks.
The combo of Sharuum the Hegemon, Sculpting Steel or Phyrexian Metamorph to get infinite enter the battlefield/die. So you playing Sharumm, target Sculpting Steel or Phyrexian Metamorph, which copies Sharumm, since the Legendary rule takes effect you sacrifice the original, then the token triggers bringing back the original, then you sac the token, and you just repeat that. Then you cast Bitter Ordeal or have Marionette Master on board.
Also + for infinite turns.
+ + is infinite 1/1's and life.

Hipparchos to touch on my competitive experience, I've played this in many tournaments and have gotten 2nd or 1st almost every time. I admit that this deck is not a fun time for opponents, but I don't play it in casual. My other decks are for that. You'll notice I'm slim on tutors and have only one infinite combo, I have it that way because, again, if I don't, he becomes insanely weak to removal, and that's not what prossh is about. A couple friends have Sharuum the Hegemon and Animar, Soul of Elements, both built at tier 1, and prossh does very well against them. Thanks again for taking interest in my deck, and I look forward to further discussions.

ComboCrazy while I understand I am missing some of the main combos of artifacts. This deck is a combo deck.
Doomsday puts the following cards in my deck in the following order from the top: Thought Scour, Worldgorger Dragon, any card, Animate Dead (or any varient), the lastly any card. When I draw Thought Scour I target myself. Worldgorger Dragon and the next card are milled and I draw Animate Dead. I then do the infinite mana combo, which will Flicker breya and in response just keep bolting people before Worldgorger Dragon's ability resolves.
Sharuum the Hegemon combos with Phyrexian Metamorph. Sharuum is on the battlefield, then I play Phyrexian Metamorph copying Sharuum. The legend rule applies and the original sharuum is put into the graveyard. Phyrexian Metamorph triggers returning the original Sharuum. Legend rule applies again and this time get rid of the Metamorph. This is infinitely returning cards from the graveyard so Bitter Ordeal takes everyone out as could Disciple of the Vault. If Reckless Fireweaver is on the battlefield then it damages each opponent to death.
Notion Thief and wheel effects.
This deck is a combo deck, just maybe not combos that you knew about. I have left out some "main" combos of artifacts, but the reasoning is I decided to make this deck somewhat competitive.

Hi, thanks for the suggestion but I don't think the enchantment works in the deck. First, I certainly don't want to give other people information about that I can potentially win any turn. This deck is all about speed and combo out as fast as possible but opponents do not know which plan I am going until I pull the trigger. Second, Enduring Renewal break my Sharuum the Hegemon + Phyrexian Metamorph/Sculpting Steel combos, which is my potential easiest combo (requiring fewest cards and not too much mana).
I understand that Enduring Renewal adds some combo potential, but this deck used to have a lot more combos (perhaps 50% more) to a point that the deck was not competitive enough; plus, less efficient combos are just never pulled off, thus including less efficient combos almost equal to not having them in the first place. Thanks for the discussion and upvote.

So currently your deck has a lot of creatures and some of them like Akiri, Line-Slinger are quite aggressive however I feel like Breya and Ichor Wellspring I would decide if you would rather be combo based or aggro based. If you want to do both I feel that Silas Renn, Seeker Adept and Sharuum the Hegemon work nicely. Cards like Magus of the Will and Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer lean either way. Magus being more combo based and Jor Kadeen being more aggressive. I would also cut Soul of New Phyrexia I don't think it helps either strategy. If you want a card that works well with board wipes then I would use Selfless Spirit as it's cheaper. Anyway hope this helps.

Hey Rusty_Shackleford! I think I understand where you're coming from. If I saw other decks with as many lands as this one, I'd be compelled to make the same comment you have. I'll have to say that this deck truly can run well with the number of lands and rocks it is currently running. Throughout months and months of playtesting, I've almost never had to worry about being behind on mana. Brainstorm and Ponder are good cards and I might put them in the deck now that you mention them, but I have had cards like Buried Ruin and Argivian Find in the past and they're not necessary because our commander can do that ability for us. Realistically speaking, I also don't really need her in the deck, but she is nice to have for the recursion and she gives us access to a Mindslaver combo.
The only other option for a commander that would be viable in these colors are Grand Arbiter Augustin IV and Sharuum the Hegemon which are both quick kill targets, Hanna is much more likely to survive a few rounds and has a lower CMC.

My favorite combo in my Breya deck is Sharuum the Hegemon + Disciple of the Vault + Sculpting Steel. Have SS enter as a copy of Sharuum, return from graveyard trigger goes on the stack, but legend rule kills Sharuum, pinging someone with Disciple, and then the return trigger resolves, returning Sharuum, and just repeat infinitely until you have infinite damage with Disciple. Fun and easy to pull off, no hoops to jump through outside of getting the cards out.
