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.

Metalbending can result in a very powerful burst of energy. Auriok Salvagers is a useful creature that acts as our primary combo line to aim for. 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. Presuming our commander is out of commission, we also have Pyrite Spellbomb as another outlet. They call this The Bomberman; I wonder if he is from the Fire Nation?

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.

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'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
