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.

Hmm combo based agro that is not voltron dependent?
Korvold, Fae-Cursed King
(burn on etb & burn on sac easy to loop)
Kykar, Wind's Fury
(Spellslinger burn aggro, easy to combo)
Marisi, Breaker of the Coil
(Token agro, with acccess to flicker and populate combo loops)
As for artifact aggro
Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer
Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer
Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain
There is also alot of equipment based agro decks i didnt list any becouse they are mostly voltron dependent
I have a friend thats currently running Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar & Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist
Its definitely pod worthy voltron

Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer is just begging to be in your deck. Please put them in their rightful home.

jakeyuki12 : thanks for the comment! What do you mean with Boros equipment good stuff? I totally agree that the deck should not rely exclusively on the commander to function and I've tried to only include synergistic creatures and equipments, but I would be really interested in including your recommendations to power up the deck.

Joe_Ken_ : thanks a lot for the suggestions! Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer was already in the list since he's a really strong beater and I'd really like to fit Adriana, Captain of the Guard as well but I really can't find a slot for her... If I only could include one of them, which one of the two would you recommend?

The living weapons are a really nice idea, Batterskull costs too much mana but i'm trying to fit Flayer Husk alongside the Ancestral Blade already in the deck.

I'm also really debated regarding Sunforger given how strong it is, what do you guys think?

Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer may be good for a top end for the deck with all the equipment and other artifacts on the board.

If you are trying to swing in every direction then Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer and Adriana, Captain of the Guard would be good for the high end of the deck.

Some of the living weapon creatures like Batterskull and Flayer Husk might be good to get that card draw earlier.

Brave the Sands may be necessary for the deck since with how her ability works the creatures may need to tap to gain indestructible.
