WeruniaB on Breya, the Infinite Whining Generator

I used to run Unwinding Clock and it wasn't as good as I thought it would be. I usually don't attack with my creatures and only few of my artifacts (accept for mana rocks) tap, so I took it out. As I said before I never attack so Feldon of the Third Path is pointless, especially because I usually can bring back creatures from the graveyard if I need them. Magister Sphinx on the other hand is a great card, but it puts me in a situation where I have to pick the player, and it draws too much hate. Conjurer's Closet would work well with Breya though, but CMC is waaay to high. Sphinx Summoner is just too expensive tutor. I also used to run Spine of Ish Sah, but it always ended up as a first card to discard. Thanks for your insight!

Goblin Welder is the only Goblin I run, so Krenko, Mob Boss wouldn't be a bomb in this deck. Purphoros, God of the Forge deals so much more damage when I simply blink my creatures. Eldrazi Monument got too high CMC. Thanks!

Unwinding Clock and Shimmer Myr work well together. Feldon of the Third Path helps bring back artifact creatures for a turn. Cheat out a Magister Sphinx to make their life 10 and Conjurer's Closet to trigger your enter the battlefield effects again. Sphinx Summoner is great search. Spine of Ish Sah combos well with Panharmonicon and Goblin Welder. It's best to find ways to cheat out artifacts.

oh cool multiplayer competition. I do want to mention https://edhrec.com/ in case you don't know about it, pretty good resource for finding neat things.

Well then Sydri, Galvanic Genius + Aetherflux Reservoir is pretty solid. You need to gain a bit of life as you need a minimum of 51 to pull it off but animate the reservoir then give it deathtouch lifelink, pay 50 life, do 50 damage, rinse repeat. 4 man pod means you are not hitting the 5 times per turn loop limit either. 2 card combo and half the combo is in the command zone, your LGS may frown on this as it is infinite and they wanted to discourage infinite.

Zada, Hedron Grinder likes cards like Expedite, Titan's Strength, Heat Shimmer, Balduvian Rage, Young Pyromancer basically takes these silly small useless effects in commander and makes them totally nuts. you need other creatures but red gives goblins which quickly and easily pile up. down side is if zada isnt out a good portion of your effects become useless but you have redundancy from Mirrorwing Dragon and can run a token subtheme with Purphoros, God of the Forge. I dunno if it would be competitive in multiplayer you could certainly smash one person.

Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is better for you then i was thinking since goad means they have to attack but cant attack you unless given no other options. grenzo, Bedlam, and goblin tribal will keep everybody swinging every turn and if you have enough goblins (or whatever you use) no one will be aloud to swing at you. Bonus is you can mill cards from opponents for each of your creatures that hit them and cast some stuff you mill off them.

Norin the Wary is chaotic, hilarious, and sometimes just plain cruel. etb triggers are key to this deck and norin is extremely hard to get rid of and cheap if he does die. Confusion in the Ranks, Warstorm Surge, Panharmonicon, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Grip of Chaos, Possibility Storm, Conjurer's Closet, Impact Tremors. these cards create a confusing board state so you may regret playing the deck if you are not well versed in the rules of the game, even if you are you may question your sanity. However norin would likely be the best of the red legends, the deck does like Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker but does not need it so you dont need to run infinite combos. with all the chaos and all the etbs going off the deck is very disruptive and people wont always know how to deal with it.

keep in mind going mono-red has its downsides, originally I assumed 1v1 which red does fine in as it is highly aggressive. In multiplayer being mono means you lack the ability to answer some things unless you want to include less efficient things like Spine of Ish Sah

Hello. I've been playing Feldon for 2 years. Here is my list: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/feldon-v3/

I'll name some cards that you aren't running that I think are invaluable.
Keldon Firebombers, Sandstone Oracle, Pathrazer of Ulamog, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Scrap Mastery, Goblin Matron,Spine of Ish Sah, Codex Shredder, Anger, Avalanche Riders, Solemn Simulacrum, Anvil of Bogardan, Wild Guess, and Cathartic Reunion.

Keldon Firebombers has been helpful against decks that ramp really hard with land. Sandstone Oracle is amazing against any refined deck. Pathrazer of Ulamog just wins the game (I've got him out on turn 4, GG). Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer is very helpful against decks with a lot of artifact removal. Scrap Mastery saves you after someone wipes the board of artifacts. Goblin Welder is found by Goblin Matron, which is insane since Welder is very powerful in a Feldon deck and especially in my list since I run Spine of Ish Sah. Spine of Ish Sah is easy to recur, get out quickly, and is unconditional removal. Codex Shredder basically is repeatable card draw in a feldon deck. Anger helps you play around instant speed removal (no more removal in response to greaves, you still get to activate feldon anyways). Avalanche Riders blows up annoying lands. Solemn Simulacrum ramps you up and draws cards (he's great after Keldon Firebombers ETB trigger). Anvil of Bogardan is a great way to get fatties in your yard. Wild Guess is a great and quick way to enable feldon. Ditto with Cathartic Reunion.

Nice deck! I highly recommend Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to boost your mana acceleration

Black has a weak spot in not being able do shut down enchantments and artifacts, but we have some colorless choices. Karn Liberated, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Spine of Ish Sah, Unstable Obelisk

I hope this would help

Cheers for monoblack players!
