Hi there.

Really like the deck you have created. I am wondering if you would consider a couple of cards. I have a deck with a couple of artifacts/creatures I think would be useful but I'll leave that up to you.

I have Shimmer Dragon in the deck to increase card draw. With a ton of tokens, you could draw a ton of cards. (Also it will be hexproof most likely)

In any red artifact deck, I would recommend Hellkite Igniter because for two mana you can boost the damage exponentially. (I've ended up one-shotting a couple of friends.

I don't know how much mana your deck makes exactly so maybe this wouldn't be the best but Saheeli, the Gifted is great for reducing mana costs. Finally, I would recommend that you add a couple of board wipes or the Torment of Hailfire that is already on your sideboard. I would recommend Saheeli's directive but you don't have enough artifacts to make that worthwhile so I don't think that's a great choice.

This is just me rambling so don't think about it too much. Keep doing what you are doing! +1

Hey, nice budget upgrade so far of the precons.

It looks like you've mixed the Osgir precon with the Breya precon which is interesting. Osgir kind of has some negative synergy with Breya or Silas as Commander because Osgir's best ability is to exile an artifact from your graveyard. With Breya and Silas you want to take advantage of being able to reanimate/recur artifacts meaning you don't want to exile them from your graveyard. Akiri has nice interaction with Osgir because he makes token copies of artifacts that make Akiri bigger. In saying this if you want to better utilize Osgir then play Akiri/Silas as Commanders.

Osgir's exile ability is powerful, but it doesn't go with Breya therefore in my opinion Osgir is out of place. I play budget Breya and not Akiri/Silas thus I may have some bias, but these Commanders seem very different in gameplay. With Akiri/Silas attacking seems important, using Commander damage as a source of winning and value. Breya is less about attacking with her and more about using her ability sacing artifacts for modes for value to control the game. Breya's best strength as Commander is being a win condition combo piece with the two Thopters she creates.


With Breya as Commander I would play Silas in the 99 because he's an artifact, but not Akiri. With Akiri/Silas I would play Breya in the 99 because she's an artifact who's three artifacts for four mana. Akiri/Silas want evasion to be able to do as much combat Commander damage therefore I would include more budget artifacts to give them evasion:

You don't really want these with Breya instead budget combo pieces:


All these Commander choices are better with less creatures and more artifacts. Lots of creatures is not what you want unless they're artifact creatures because all these Commanders abilities are only good with artifacts. 40 creatures is a lot of creatures for any Commander deck that's not tribal like Elves. Consider cutting creatures for more artifacts?

There are some exceptions here for nonartifact creatures:

Whirler Rogue seems very good with Akiri/Silas to make either or both unblockable, but is subpar with Breya. You could cut all the others that I didn't name for artifacts or other cards.

Some cards to consider cutting to get to 99:

I offer more advice. Would you like more advice? Good luck with deck.

Hi! Thank you for the advice! I cut a lot of cards like Marauder's Axe and some of the pure value cards like you suggested. I had a little bit of trouble finding win-conish permanents due to the restriction from Zirda, my companion, but I did find some interesting cards like Hellkite Igniter that I think will work well.

Thanks for the suggestions Cinnamon_Peridot! In my pods, Hellkite Igniter works well because there isn't much flying or flying removal, and it works well as a big swinger. I will agree with you that Pilgrim's Eye isn't impressive, but I didn't know what to replace it for.

I noticed that Inventors' Fair isn't in the list, but it seems like it'd be a great addition. Also, Saheeli plays really nicely with Eldrazi. It That Betrays , Kozilek, Butcher of Truth , and Kozilek, the Great Distortion seem like reasonable options. Pilgrim's Eye has never impressed me because the land goes to hand, not to the field, and Hellkite Igniter also seems underwhelming to me (although I've never tested it and it seems like it could be worth playing). Overall, I really like this list! Good work!
