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.

Azeworai amazing suggestions! I honestly had Thopter Foundry and some of the other suggestions in my stack and forgot to include them. This deck has so much in it that removing stuff has been... difficult. Fun, though! I really like Unfulfilled Desires, gotta figure out where to throw it in...

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.

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 Much of current deck description is out of date.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.

Sword of the Meek should work in alela—- moreso to combo off with something like Thopter Foundry to get it goin.

It seems like your Thopter Foundry, Salvage Titan, and your other artifacts clash. The artifacts you have require sacrificed to be used. So you could be in a game waiting to sacrifice them until you get a Thopter Foundry or Salvage Titan that may or may not come. Or the opposite happens where you sacrifice your artifacts for their effects and then you can't take advantage of the 2 cards your really want out. I would look getting out artifacts like equipments or maybe some cheap Myrs.

Look into Myr Propagator, Alloy Myr, Gold Myr, Hovermyr, Leaden Myr, Myr Battlesphere, Myr Moonvessel, Myr Retriever, Myr Sire, Myr Turbine, and Palladium Myr. These all serve as a quick creatrue to get out, supply more mana for the big creatrues, or even supply you with plenty of endless artifacts for Thopter Foundry and Salvage Titan.
