Sharuum the Hegemon Discussion

Hey! Maybe Thalisse, Reverent Medium and Blind Obedience should be in? I'd also recommend Favorable Winds over Empyrean Eagle or Thunderclap Wyvern since it's an enchantment. Gravitational Shift can be a game-ender, too, and Throne of the God-Pharaoh quadruples your combat damage.

I haven't actually built this in paper, but I brewed up an Alela deck a few months ago, so this might function as a list of cards to consider: Alela fun stuff

Where I might make cuts: Ravenform
Tezzeret's Touch and Ensoul Artifact
Witching Well
Tezzeret the Schemer
Fabricate since you don't have very powerful artifacts to look for
Sharuum the Hegemon
Animating Faerie

multimedia on Breya....Help Me!

Hey, well done so far.

Your deck doesn't have a Commander yet. In the editor where you see Breya, Etherium Shaper text add the Commander tag CMDR to the end.

Breya, Etherium Shaper *CMDR*

This will show Breya as the Commander and show a card image of Breya under the Commander category.

What is your budget for upgrades? Since I don't know I will give you some low budget options.

Dramatic Reversal is paired with Isochron Scepter and mana rocks to make infinite mana. Infinite mana can be used with Breya as a win condition since she can sac herself for mode to do 3 damage to a player. When she dies she goes to the Command Zone and because you have infinite mana you keep casting her from there. Repeat the combo by sacing her and one of her Thopters. If not playing Reversal than Scepter doesn't do enough in your deck with only four other instants.

Grand Architect with Breya since she and the Thopters she creates are blue. Architect is ramp for artifacts or artifact activated abilities and it can tap itself even the turn you play it. Architect combos with Pili-Pala for infinite colored mana and Breya can be the win condition with infinite mana by sacing herself for her 3 damage to a player mode.

Goblin Engineer because many of the combo artifacts are 3 CMC or less. Engineer has interaction with Eldrazi Displacer for more tutoring. More repeatable artifact reanimation is helpful and getting an artifact of your choice in your graveyard is good with many cards here: Daretti, Scrap Savant , Goblin Welder , Sharuum the Hegemon , Trash for Treasure , Emry, Lurker of the Loch , etc.

Whirlwind of Thought repeatable draw by casting artifacts as well as instants/sorceries/enchantments/Planeswalkers.

Some changes to consider:

If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

If you're looking for a deck with lots of moving parts and synergy, I would say go with an artifact deck. There are just so many combos. Breya, Etherium Shaper gives you an infinite mana outlet as well as 4 colors, so that's pretty good. But if you want an artifact commander that can be part of the combo instead of just the payoff, Sharuum the Hegemon is a forgotten one that has lots of combos due to how the legendary rule works. It's as janky and rule-bending as the Krark-Clan Ironworks combo in Modern was.

I've seen something like this most frequently in a Sharuum the Hegemon combo with Phyrexian Metamorph .

The Combo Show

I don't think this proposed rule change would affect this particular combo, but there are a lot of weird lines out there. If it doesn't affect your games, it could work as a house rule, but watch out for outside situations where it could change the outcome of a game.

You can play lands just fine. You just need to be able to cantrip over them. If I built a deck as you describe, it would feature Lich, Lich's Mastery, Lich's Mirror, and Platinum Angel, because we will not end up life positive. I would choose an esper commander in order to have access to artifact tutors such as Treasure Mage and enchantment tutors such as Academy Rector, as well as recursion, lifelink/lifegain, powerful black tutors, and blink/flicker effects. Sharuum the Hegemon would be my commander of choice as we can flicker him to recur our combo pieces. I like your idea and look forward to seeing it develop.

Sharuum the Hegemon targets a clone artifact in the graveyard is an infinite loop.

Suppose you target Sculpting Steel in the graveyard, "as it enters" you choose to become a copy of Sharuum the Hegemon, on state-base-action you have to send one to the graveyard due to the legend rule; then trigger ability of Sharuum goes onto the stack, you can then return either Sculpting Steel or Sharuum the Hegemon back from the graveyard depends on which one you let it die. Repeat for infinite life lose from Disciple of the Vault

ChaosClaws Remember that Sharuum the Hegemon + Mirrorworks + Ashnod's Altar gives you infinite mana. After that you play Sensei's Divining Top, copy it. Tap the original one to draw a card, then tap the token one to draw the top that was put on top of the library -> you net 1 card from this process. Repeat to draw the entire deck with infinite colorless mana and do whatever you want.
