multimedia hmmmm.... first thank you so much for your suggestions!

I had the three artifact lands and Sword of the Meek in here at one point. I didn't see the interaction between the Altar and Thopter Foundry. I'll have to think about that.

I've looked at Cranial Plating but was not trying to specifically go voltron with Alela. I've considered taking out things like Mace of the Valiant to reduce my urges to swing hard with a thicc Alela :P

Thopter Assembly, however, could be fun though, as I wanted a way to utilize Time Sieve efficiently. Infinite turns just sounds rude enough to be fun.

Trinket Mage is solid, good suggestion there!

Hey, nice version of Alela.

With an artifact theme Cranial Plating can be a win condition doing potential lethal 21 Commander damage when equipped to flying Alela. If you add Plating then also consider the artifact lands: Seat of the Synod, Vault of Whispers, Ancient Den? Artifact lands count as artifacts and have interaction with Transmuter and Forgemaster especially Seat.

Having Ashnod's Altar and Thopter Foundry consider Sword of the Meek? It combos with these two cards for infinite Thops. Having Time Sieve consider Thopter Assembly? Assembly combos with Sieve for infinite turns. Infinite turns means you can kill all your opponents with Alela + your army of fliers. Assembly has interaction with Alela because it's an artifact that gets returned to your hand if you control no Thops to be cast again. This means Assembly + Alela + Sieve is infinite Faes because you cast Assembly each turn.

Consider Trinket Mage? Since there's many one drop artifacts and best of all it can get Skullclamp. Trinket can tutor for an Artifact land if you need a land instead of another artifact.

With so many basic lands you could improve the manabase with Check lands: Drowned Catacomb, Glacial Fortress, Isolated Chapel and/or the two Battle lands: Sunken Hollow and Prairie Stream which are more budget options.

Good luck with your deck.

TheSurgeon thats basically just a more expensive Altar of the Brood. In my opinion, Grinding Station requires a lot of building around, with a bunch of eggs like Chromatic Star, Sly Requisitioner, Sword of the Meek, Memnite and other 0 mana artifacts, Thopter Foundry, even KCI (I once brewed and played a deck built around this kind of stuff a year or so ago). Basically, its more at home in a different kind of artifact combo deck.

Also, Sword of the Meek was just reprinted in Double masters, so relatively cheap combo with thopter foundry

Prized Amalgam can be returned to the battlefield if you mill a Narcomoeba.

You can play Salvage Titan by sacrificing 3 artifacts and you can get 3 artifacts into play by milling a Narcomoeba to return Sword of the Meeks to your battlefield attached to it and also sacing Memnites and/or Ornithopters.

AkimotoRiku, thanks for the upvote. Much of current deck description is out of date. I haven't had time to update it yet.

If you can afford a good four color manabase then in my opinion Breya is a much better Commander than Alela because Breya is a combo enabler/win condition. Having a combo piece in the Command Zone who can also be a win condition really increases the power level of a deck. Breya being an artifact is what makes her such a good Commander with artifact strategies and since she can sac herself for her 3 damage to a player mode is what makes her a win condition with combos.

Recently released Double Masters has helped this deck a lot. Breya is reprinted in the set and there's many other cards that are now budget options. The manabase got huge help from the Filter lands, Glimmervoid and I'm watching Sunken Ruins and Academy Ruins. Master Transmuter, Phyrexian Metamorph, Baleful Strix, Sculpting Steel are now very good budget artifacts and I'm watching Darksteel Forge. Arcum Dagsson's price has been cut in half letting me add him back in. Sword of the Meek is now a budget equipment and it combos with Thopter Foundry.

Noelqkazoo Do to the Sword of the Meek needing a 1/1 creature entering the battlefield to bring it back, you would need to at first rid the bored of Alela, Artful Provocateur because as long as she is on the bored, the Thopters created by Thopter Foundry will be 2/1's after state based actions are checked. So yes, while in theory you could include the combo, you'd have to be sure to sacrifice Alela to your Ashnod's Altar prior. I have recently been informed of that option. When the deck is so focused on keeping Alela on the field to maximize the production of faerie tokens, I've overlooked that option.

That said, I'm not totally against using the combo anymore. I've recently purchased a few more cards and have yet to update the deck so it has a few more options to keep the deck running in the event that Alela is removed, specifically Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge and Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas for the mass damage they can generate.
