Breena, the Demagogue

Legendary Creature — Bird Warlock


Whenever a player attacks one of your opponents, if that opponent has more life than another of your opponents, that attacking player draws a card and you put two +1/+1 counters on a creature you control.

It is pretty solid in Breena, the Demagogue even without any Zombie tribal

Im really not a fan of the battle cry mechanic. It could work really well with Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin, Mardu Ascendancy, or the other many token makers, but I would rather just run Fervent Charge. It takes a single card for +4/+4 and your creatures are more likely to survive combat. you could always stack more though

Vengeful Ancestor, Parasitic Impetus, Shiny Impetus, and maybe Martial Impetus could all be fun tools to mess with your opponents while keeping yourself safe from larger threats. You get double rewards with Isshin

Guild Artisan, Curse of Opulence, and Sword of the Animist are options for ramp.

Fighter Class is nice for the tutor and later on can force blocks and can be used to kill off weak targets.

Shadowspear exists. you should use it in every deck Helm of the Host lets you double commanders, and lets you go infinite with Godo, Bandit Warlord. Who also should just automatically be your automatic first pick for a 6 drop. Tutor, double combats...

Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder doublestrike AND lifelink. costs one more but can replace your enchantment.

Ilharg, the Raze-Boar Wanna play two cards for free?

Breena, the Demagogue does so much. buffs you like crazy. Can net you two cards per combat phase... which you will hopefully get multiple of with more things like: Aggravated Assault and Waves of Aggression can go infinite Port Razer, Raiyuu, Storm's Edge, Response / Resurgence are also nice

Agent of the Shadow Thieves and Fey Steed protect your commander or other attackers, and the steed may also come out even against removal.

You dont need to go all out on making one guy and instakill, Sublime Archangel with many tokens or Pact Weapon with combats can do it by themselves situationally. And the pact weapon is just way too cool.

Selfless Samurai is free lifelink and protection you can save for your commander. Cathedral of War is just going to be free power every once in a while

Hopeful Initiate is repeatable removal with extra steps I'd honestly ditch the sunforger.

I can see the argument for a Tectonic Giant swap, Last_Laugh.

I think I'm still going to swap with Breena, the Demagogue and keep Tectonic (for now). I like the redundancy on group slug and drawing between Commisar & Tectonic.

Breena is just okay. The draw donations are fun for political wheeling & dealing, but they seem to come back to bite eventually in my play group lol.

My friends are not looking forward to Commisar's debut.

I've been keeping loose tabs on 40K spoilers, Last_Laugh, mostly because I've been on vacation starting yesterday lol.

Sounds like that will get a spot in this deck. I'll figure out my swaps later, but it will probably replace Breena, the Demagogue.

I think the deck needs more ramp, I highly recommend adding Arcane Signet, Talisman of Conviction, Talisman of Hierarchy, Talisman of Indulgence, Boros Signet, Orzhov Signet, and Rakdos Signet. Having these will help you cast your commander much earlier and start swinging.

I would also recommend some more card draw, such as Mindblade Render, Breena, the Demagogue, and even Tymna the Weaver.

Gleeock on What makes a deck-worthy commander?

4 months ago

I think one thing that can make a commander interesting can also be when your strategy keeps people guessing or isn't easily identified. Or when the commander can build in a less common subtheme. My Marisi, Breaker of the Coil deck is actually just enchantress with a more aggressive enchantress shell... Very fun when the assumption is that I will be relying on Marisi or goad as my masterplan & in reality I am just playing the Naya god pantheon & building a wall... It is one of 2 decks I have that also make vigilance a pertinent ability :)

Breena, the Demagogue has been incredibly aggressive with little standard weenies (lifelink, vigilant, low CMC) & a planeswalker subtheme. I love it when players are scratching their heads with my heavy proliferate theme, then I start dropping planeswalkers & they are like; oh, it is sortof an aggro Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, but not really!?!

golgarigirl solid, parring down to Tuvasa the Sunlit. Was it just experience that made you par down from WUBRG? Genuinely curious. Alot of my large playgroup started with WUBRG decks & then parred down eventually too for alot of different reasons.

My Queen Marchesa deck is mix of akkido effects like Deflecting Palm, monarch tribal which gives you card advantage and a bunch of other effects and then cards like Dread to make people not want to attack me. I also have cards like Breena, the Demagogue that mess with combat choices.

The last time I played the Queen I kept the Monarch for like 6 turn cycles because of No Mercy. I ended up winning by casting a Thrilling Encore after the last other player standing (playing a Xenagos, God of Revels deck) had killed my Archon of Coronation and Protector of the Crown before going in for an alpha strike (I got a couple of his things he'd sacrificed to do that too). I survived and he lost on the crack-back. It was a great game.

Contested War Zone is another card with a similar effect.

As for a commander, I'm not sure. It sounds combat centric but also maybe politics focused?

Marisi, Breaker of the Coil, Jared Carthalion, True Heir, Queen Marchesa and Breena, the Demagogue are the first ones to come to mind. Jared might be your best bet, I think.
