Sydri, Galvanic Genius Discussion

A word of warning: Breya is very OP, and the table will treat you as such. If your game plan is to present a nonthreatening board and survive to the lategame, you might be better off dropping the red and going with Sydri, Galvanic Genius .

I normally play a Sydri, Galvanic Genius deck. It seems you have many of the artifact combos I run, but one that's been really good for me I feel is worth slotting is Time Sieve . It easily goes infinite with Thopter Assembly , and with Breya they might mistake it for a value engine as opposed to in

Another artifact creature that begs to be recurred is Meteor Golem
And Aminatou, the Fateshifter is another blink effect on stick to keep you commander getting value from artifacts in the graveyard or just blinking ones in play.

9-lives, I ask that you read this and think about it. I am well known for wanting to have my cake and eat it. This is a game, and games are meant to be fun, even if it's competitive. That being said, the following are my suggestions:
Lotus Cobra is only really good when you can get more than one landfall trigger and generate a faster tempo (generally off of "fetch lands" like Windswept Heath into an untapped land). For example: consider turn three. Two forests in play, lotus cobra, Pride Sovereign, and windswept heath in hand. You play cobra, drop a fetch, and search, opening 3 mana (if you include the untapped land) to play the sovereign.
Life total is irrelevant unless you can abuse it, or you are playing against burn (in which it is still not really relevant). Examples of abusing lifegain are Aetherflux Reservoir+Sydri, Galvanic Genius, Felidar Sovereign, and Lim-Dul's Vault. The only formats these can be achieved in are commander, highlander, or other eternal formats.
Indestructible is insane, especially because the only removal for it in modern is in white or -1/-1 counters.
Even if I'm not in aggro I would still play Fleecemane Lion, Loam Lion, and Wild Nacatl. I would do this because they are the creatures that will keep me alive in the early game, while applying pressure. for these I would take out Ajani's Pridemate and Lotus Cobra (unless you are willing to get some fetches)
The flaw in your argument that Renaissance is better, is that it is for your enchantments. Renaissance is not card advantage. The information is still open, it doesn't immediately expand your board presence, and can be hated out more easily than your enchantments. Rest in Peace is currently in the mainboard of multiple decks that run white. My decks play Tormod's Crypt. Hating out your graveyard is currently game 1 meta. In reality, I would not run recursion/graveyard in the main. Against this deck (assuming your recursion is in your sideboard) I would plan on ditching my graveyard hate for enchantment hate. This is because I believe that drawing my graveyard hate is a dud against your deck.

The Gitrog Monster is pretty fun, if that’s your style.
You could always build artifacts, there’s many options for generals but my favorite is Sydri, Galvanic Genius
Sigarda, Heron's Grace is a newer build of mine and it’s pretty fun (especially at sub $100)
Anyways, hope this helped.

Hi nenya14! You could definitely replace the lands with a budget land base, and cut some of the more expensive ramp and draw spells to put in other ramp and draw. The hard part to replace would be the token doublers and the enchantment animators, but you could also try an artifact package with Mycosynth Lattice, Mirrorworks, Sculpting Steel, Phyrexian Metamorph, Prototype Portal, and Cogwork Assembler to copy enchantments after they are turned into artifacts, and March of the Machines, Titania's Song, The Antiquities War, Tezzeret the Seeker , Karn, Silver Golem, or Sydri, Galvanic Genius to turn the enchantments into creatures and attack. You could also just make creature tokens with Sigil of the Empty Throne, or win without creatures using Induced Amnesia.
