Hey, interesting concept, but you're sacrificing a lot of card quality and a cohesive deck strategy by playing so many different partner pairs. Instead of so many partners how about simplifying by choosing a few that also go with Breya? That way you can play these partners in a Breya version of the deck. Or switch to partner pairs, but keep the majority of the deck the same with the same strategy.

Akiri + Silas makes most sense as an alternative four color partner pair because they have synergy with artifacts and can be played with Breya as Commander. Silas + Tymna could also work for Esper with a Thopter or other artifact fliers strategy which you could also play with four color Breya as Commander. Tymna is a powerful card and it helps that Breya creates fliers making it easier to do combat damage to at least two different opponents. All the other partners are out of place and could be cut to improve the deck for Breya, Akiri, Silas and Tymna?


Akiri, Silas, Tymna and Breya can all benefit from more cards that create Thopters especially Thopter Foundry + Sword of the Meek which is not an infinite combo without another card, but can repeatedly create an amount of Thopters equal to the amount of mana you have available. Master Transmuter to create Thopters by keep bouncing Breya and putting her onto the battlefield for .

Breya's Apprentice with artifacts can be repeatable for the cast from exile strategy. Sai, Master Thopterist can repeatedly create Thopters with artifact theme. Sharding Sphinx can double your Thopter army when they do combat damage to opponents. Hangarback Walker can create a lot of Thopters especially when you have a lot of ramp from mana rocks or treasures. Hangarback wants to die which has synergy with Breya and Silas.


I like the idea of being able to switch to different Commanders with partners, it's creative, but for this idea of work the partners you choose need to have some synergy with each other that way you can mix and match them, but still have a cohesive deck strategy no matter which Commanders you choose. You're not taking much advantage of Breya as Commander or Silas + Akiri or Silas + Tymna and artifacts playing 44 creatures. The partners are a neat addition to Commander, but you still want to build your deck around the two you choose that way not playing so many cards that don't go with your Commanders.

Prosper, Tome-Bound and Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer are good cards for casting spells from exile because they're also enablers, you don't need to play any specific strategy to play them. They can be good with Breya because they create treasures which are artifacts. Laelia, the Blade Reforged is another good card for this strategy because she's also an enabler. Building around the exile strategy with 20+ cards is too many with Breya because the problem is if you don't draw Prosper the exile strategy doesn't do much with Breya, Akiri, Silas, Tymna as Commander.


This is an example of a streamlined/simplified creature base using some current creatures you're playing and adding my card suggestions:

Good luck with your deck.

kamarupa Would Reshape be a better then Ring of Three Wishes, it has a higher 1 turn CMC to get out my win con but technically less mana over all? Also I like Ornithopter of Paradise would be a great fin to my deck? I would like a second opinion on that. I may ask more questions in the future thank you in advance

Hiya, I know this is an older deck, but in case anyone is reading, A good card for Progenitus is Jodah, Archmage Eternal, which halves the cost of Progenitus. Ornithopter of Paradise is quite a handy mana dork. Bloom Tender can also be useful for generating mana. The deck only has one Progenitus. I would add another and also some kind of tutor. Diabolic Tutor or Worldly Tutor would be good options.

Nice list! This is the first budget list I've seen in a while that's actually inexpensive. I wonder if Kels could use a little budget friendly protection. Blessing of Leeches, Kaya's Ghostform, Esior, Wardwing Familiar, and/or Winged Boots could be some good options. Also Ornithopter of Paradise is a pretty solid mana dork. Maybe Shambling Ghast since it makes a treasure when it dies. And Sol Ring might be worth the extra $1.60. Very cool deck. I might have to brew my own version of Kels.

Jubilant Skybonder would offer some good protection for your flyers. Ornithopter of Paradise would be a good fit here. Not everyone is a fan, but I think Cartographer's Hawk could be of some value, too.

With so much artifact creature support, Ornithopter of Paradise seems like a solid mana rock that can double as sacrifice fodder to bring out the big guy. I think I'd put it over your Chromatic Lantern, since your manabase seems pretty consistent and ramping from two mana to four is a lot better than three to five when your commander costs four. In the more marginal columns, it also brings down your CMC averages for Dark Confidant a little and acts as an extra creature for all your effects that trigger off those, plus it's a Thopter that you can feed to Retrofitter Foundry.
