If you open your mind, you will see that all the elements are one. Four parts of the same whole. Even metal is just a part of earth that has been purified and refined.

Greetings, my formal name is Toph Bei Fong, but you may know me as Breya, Etherium Shaper. For thousands of years, Earthbenders were not known to manipulate processed earth. It was only during my captivity that I was challeneged to test whether or not I could bend the metals that surrounded me. Eventually, I was able to sense the vibrations that exist in all metals and came to the realization that metal is but a form of processed earth. Sensing

For these purposes, I have subscribed to a strict colour identity that compliments metalbending. represent the elements that shape, make, break and return the metals back to whence they came; only to be recycled again, and again.


Such is the nature of my build for EDH/Commander. The purpose is to manipulate the metals in artifacts, sense the metals in all spells and cards, make and produce artifacts, and break them down for greater purposes.

For the purpose of this deck's synergy, I have began an academy dedicated to Metalbending. The following Planeswalker was recruited as they fit the needs of what we are trying to ultimately do.

  1. Dack Fayden

This individual has the power that extends well beyond the planes they respectively belong to, and possesses the chakra necessary to bend the metals to our advantage in different, albeit similar ways.

Metalbending can result in a very powerful burst of energy. Breya, Etherium Shaper + Nim Deathmantle + Bitter Ordeal + Krark-Clan Ironworks is a rather complicated, yet elegant way of stopping one's opponents. When I am equipped with Nim Deathmantle, I can actually sacrifice myself to Krark-Clan Ironworks. Nim triggers, and with that on the stack, we would sacrifice an additional Thopter token for the last floating mana needed to pay the activation cost to return to the battlefield once more, and with my return will come two more Thopter tokens. We can do this an infinite amount of times to produce an infinite amount of Thopter tokens, and as such, an infinite amount of mana and more importantly - an infinite amount of permanents going to the graveyard. Bitter Ordeal plays a part in this as well, as it makes use of all these instances of permanents going to the graveyard in one turn, and can exile an entire library.

In order to find the metals we need, there must be an accelerated method of drawing our deck; wheel effects such as Windfall and Wheel of Fortune provide card advantage for us, and could perhaps disrupt an opponent's tempo.

Such is the nature of a versatile element such as these metals. We bend them to our needs, depending on the scenario. As such, I deem it necessary to never stray from our roots of Metalbending, but rather broaden our responses so we may adapt if need be.

Auriok Salvagers is another useful creature that provides a quick infinite combo. Using Lion's Eye Diamond we can sacrifice it, float and activate the Salvagers' ability to bring an artifact back to our hand. We can bring the diamond back, cast and sacrificing as many times as we need to produce mana of every colour which can in turn cast Breya and bolt the table. They call this The Bomberman; I wonder if he is from the Fire Nation?

There has been a recent discovery for a new fun and fair combo I can use. Kudos to KailDaemon for pointing this out. It is the classic Animate Dead + Worldgorger Dragon combo, only this time we can use its mana to sacrifice myself and my metals I create upon entering the battlefield, and using this to choose my ability where I deal 3 damage to an opponent an infinite number of times. We just need to be sure there is another creature to break that loop in the Graveyard.

I have recently taken this one step further. Suppose we just can't draw or pull off this combo as fast as we need to; there lies an elevated expansion of this combo that forces us to go all in: Doomsday

This is spell that removes all but 5 spells in our book. In order from the top to bottom:

  1. Thought Scour
  2. Worldgorger Dragon
  3. Any creature you wish
  4. Animate Dead
  5. Any card you desire

The procedure is simple, and effectively requires only to pull off. You cast Thought Scour targeting yourself, sending Worldgorger Dragon and another creature to the graveyard. We draw Animate Dead and cast it, beginning the infinite loop. We can break the loop by finally targeting the other creature. And the rest is all the same.

For a means of protection, Grand Abolisher or Silence will help prevent any interruptions on your turn as you cast this.


Top Rated Breya Deck On T/O

I'd like to take a moment to recognize and acknowledge some of the other tremendous metalbenders here on T/O:

KailDaemon - Breya, Etherium C-C-Combo Breaker!

mmcgeach - Breya Ad naus

Kai-Erik - Breya, Ghost in the Shell OVER 65 INFINITE COMBOS


enter image description here

Hat-tips to all who play MvC who got that reference.

We interrupt all bending of metals to bring you some Amonkhet goodness into Breya.

Animate Dead + Worldgorger Dragon is classic. But do you know what the best use of all that mana is for? If your first thought was to cast and recast Breya a bunch of times, you thought wrong.

The correct answer is: Absolutely nothing.

Why not have Sunscorched Desert on the field as you begin this loop and kill everyone without lifting a finger?

I totally felt in love with Breya Doomsday build. I've created deck basing on your list but my meta prefers Leviathan over standard EDH. We are playing 1v1 and 2v2. So bad thing is that cards like Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal, Sensei's Divining Top and Mox Diamond are banned. This is a huge disadvantage for Breya but I still want to play it. I would be very thankful for any comments and help on my deck:

Breya of Doom

Thank You!
