A Breya combo deck, modified from the C16 Invent Superiority precon.

With the announcement of the 4-color Commander decks, I immediately went for all but green because I had a foil Swiftwater Cliffs and Scoured Barrens. I know, the value, right?

Anyways, I eventually moved on to working on other commander decks while the idea of a WUBR general gathered dust in the back of my head. I considered all but red too, but four colors in general was not my type.

Fast forward to months later, when the C16 precons were announced. I was interested in anything other than the popular commanders. I tried brewing up lists, with no avail, and slept on the idea some more.

I then decided to try making a deck around Breya, because most of the cards were already in the structure deck, and also I've always had a soft spot for Esper artifact generals. I then took some time and brewed up this list, and I'm going to be using it for a while. It focuses on combos and interactions between artifacts to win the game, and honestly it's a very consistent deck. :)

As with all the decks I make, there will be a budget. This deck will be around $140, and may rise as time goes on. :)

As most of the cards are found in the structure deck, the price of the Acquireboard is my "actual" budget. Currently the budget for that is about $50-55.

Note I will be upgrading the mana base first, so that will most likely be the best suggestions to make for the time being.

Combos Involving Breya

Other Notable Combos

There is a turn three win combo in this deck, but you will need 5 cards in your opening hand:

Grand Architect + Pili-Pala is a well-known combo, being able to produce infinite mana of any color. This allows us to cast and recast Breya from the command zone after sacking her with her own ability.

Here's how it plays out

T1: Island > Sol Ring > Pili-Pala

T2: Island > Grand Architect

T3: Pay into Grand Architect's ability, infinitely tapping/untapping Pili-Pala to produce infinite mana to cast Breya from the command zone and activate her ability sacking herself and a thopter, returning her into the command zone, repeating ad nauseum.

A very unlikely dream hand, but it's possible.

  • Extremely consistent and easily-assembled combos

  • Artifacts

  • Lots of support for the deck's theme

  • Vandalblast or any artifact hate

  • People will most likely get bored of the infinite combos in the deck

  • Can get mana screwed rather easily due to being 4 colors. Luckily there's lots of ramp

  • All of the wincons are via going infinite through the above mentioned combos. Usually either through swinging with infinite hasty thopters, infinite life drain or infinite damage. Beatdown is also viable because of Open the Vaults and Scrap Mastery. :)

    If you like the deck, upvotes/+1's are much appreciated, thanks!

    I have a Grenzo, Dungeon Warden combo deck that has about six or seven ways to go infinite. The only issue with playing a deck like that at a table over a long period of time is people know what to expect and will just take the linchpin out of your combo. I like your list if you just want to blow out the gate and say "I win" sometimes but be warned people will meta against you and make it harder for you to win. I can't keep my Ashnod's Altar on the table for longer than a turn.

    KroggandMohawk I kinda realized that as soon as I tested this and combo'd out consistently relatively quickly haha. I do have a couple combo decks in my meta, along with two more cutthroat Breya decks that pretty much sneeze out their hands by T4. The deck I'm usually gonna be playing is Angry Omnath and this deck is meant for when my playgroup members whip out powerful decks.
