Mana Breach Discussion

Goretast, thank you for the suggestions!
I did a bit of research ahead of putting the deck together, and all of these were mentioned and were on my list. I noticed however, that this approach leaned more on the competitive side, and while its fun to win a lot, my playgroup is not competitive at all. I'd like to keep the power level hovering around the 6-7 range. For that reason alone I had scratched Mana Breach from my list, and Cloudstone Curio is a bit out of my budget right now.
As for the creatures you suggested, well, the only real reservation I have about them is that the bounce effect is permanent, by which I mean the creature doesn't immediately return to play. I'm forced to recast it. I understand that the idea is that these creatures are cheap and can bounce them selves and be cast repeatedly. Value noted. My preference for a bounce effect in the deck is of immediate return so that I can utilize them on larger, more expensive creatures like Tishana, Voice of Thunder or Prime Speaker Zegana. To get the effects I'm looking for, returning them to my hand would slow me down to much.
They are great suggestions and I appreciate the input, however I don't feel that they are a good fit for the deck at this time. If I take the deck to a local league or tournament, then I will most definitely incorporate these.

Great to see another Chulane player out there. I'm not sure what your budget is like or the power-level you're looking for, but Shrieking Drake / Whitemane Lion are MVPs for this commander. They can bounce themselves to allow for many triggers with Chulane. Cloudstone Curio is also essential and opens up many combos for the deck by allowing you to bounce your permanents (i.e. you can bounce tapped lands to put in new untapped ones with Chulane). Mana Breach also lets you combo your lands while horribly crippling your opponents. I have a primer made for a competitive deck, but you might find some cards you like for your build: [Primer] Chulane's Bounce House [cEDH].

Have you considered running Storm Cauldron ? Another great way to control the board that your commander can help circumvent. I've got a Patron of the Moon deck in the works, too, but I'm not running a competitive version. I'm considering running Mana Breach as well, but am not sure yet. I am running Overburden and Storm Cauldron , and use them in Simic lands deck I run, which work awesome. The downfall in blue, is the lack of ramp, like you point out.
I run a lot of land of bounce in the deck, and am considering Khalni Gem as well. How does it work for you? Also, with the untap effects in the deck, I'm giving Scaretiller a go, too. Have you thought about it?
+1 from a fellow Patron builder!

Exit777, yes i agree with the both basic fetcher and i thought about it too. I don't know if they're worth it yet, i'll see after some games. so far i want to ramp hard with the big rocks as it's seen so i have the mana for other synergies or the carddraws, so i hope to get to a hand full of lands anyway. we'll see...
Overburden is in many Patron decklists and i even thought i had one, but obviously thats wrong and i think i will include soon :D
Mana Breach is a nice option in this deck and i saw it before too - i agree it's a very strong card for the deck strategies and i will think about including it!! Deprive is also nice, i have to think about that too.

Patron provides such a unique angle for a mono U deck. Some stuff I had in mind when I thought about building him was Skittering Surveyor and Pilgrim's Eye as ramp options, since Patron turns drawing lands into a strength rather than a weakness. There are some bits and bobs that include lands in their costs like Deprive or Tragic Lesson but I'm not sure yet if they're worth it.
I'm a huge fan of bouncing lands with the patron though, so I'm pleased to see Sunder included. Some similar effects to slow down play that I wanted to try out in this are Mana Breach and Overburden ,maybe consider them if you havent already :)

Thanks, SufferFromEDHD. I like your list. I've been on the fence about adding in Storm Cauldron . It offers the extra land drop, but at a cost, which the deck can probably overcome, but I've just been unsure. I'll probably add it. Same thoughts on Overburden and Mana Breach .
You do have some cards I was not aware of in your build, which I like. Thanks for the ideas!

Sadly OptimalGreen, I do think I am going to change commanders. I have played Karametra for over 4 years, and while Karametra is fun and can have some explosive wins, she simply lacks interaction with the board. Chulane is a great step-up because it introduces counterspells and still lets me run our flicker combos but with grosser things like Intruder Alarm , Shrieking Drake , Mana Breach , Overburden , etc. I have a completed list you can check out: [cEDH] Chulane's Bounce House. I've bought the dual lands and everything, so I'm committed to say the least. I will keep updating Karametra and playing her, but she will not be my first pick anymore.

Cloudstone Curio is nuts in Chulane and goes infinite with just 2 mana dorks and 2 lands. I also think Village Bell-Ringer is great because you can bounce him with Chulane's active ability to go infinite with some dorks or Aluren . You also need Shrieking Drake , it's the cheapest creature to flicker to get Chulane triggers and you can grab it with Ranger-Captain of Eos , which has a great ability ontop of it for your deck. Mana Breach and Overburden (as suggested before) are also amazing because they help us get value with our commander while horribly hindering opponents.
