Some thoughts:

  • both Vault of Whispers and Dirge of Dread are not modern legal.

  • your mana curve looks decent, but you have very little to do on turn 1… i’d suggest maybe trying to get a few more 1-mana cards in here.

  • you’re running a lot of cards as 1-ofs and 2-ofs, which will make it a lot harder for your deck to have a clear direction or coherent playstyle. I’d suggest aiming for the vast majority of your cards to be run as playsets - and ditch those cards that aren’t as usuful.

  • depending on your budget, most of your cards can be upgraded. For example, Lightning Bolt and Fatal Push are both stronger killspells than your current selection.

Apologies for the very delayed response, Andramalech. I tried out Gyruda, Doom of Depths for quite some time but on many occasions I'd either flip Demons with odd CMC's or nothing at all preventing any additional combo'ing with Be'Lakor, the Dark Master. Solid suggestion, and like I said I gave him the old college try, I just found Gyruda didn't quite make the cut. I really dig your list and it looks like it crushes! One suggestion I have is to add in the UBR artifact lands Seat of the Synod, Vault of Whispers, and Great Furnace (maybe even throw in Darksteel Citadel, too) to increase your artifact count for Mox Opal - the worst thing is not having enough artifacts for Metalcraft and not being able to utilize such a great mana rock. I would add Urza's Incubator as well since Demons aren't a cost-friendly tribe. Have you considered the Grixis Talismans as well? These could be solid additions to up your ramp package (which is already great), though the hard part is always figuring what to take out to free up space. Thanks for your feedback and, once more, sorry for taking so long to get back to you.

I would drop the 4x Vault of Whispers for 4x Expedition Maps while leaving the rest of your mana base alone. The reason behind this is that your only black mana pips are the phyrexian pips in Vault Skirge so I see it as wanting to cast it early as a blocker with paying the life and the Expedition Maps allow you to go grab whatever land you need based on how your starting hand and first few draws lead the game.

If you cut the treasure vaults and a Vault of Whispers or two for more blue and white lands that would remove the need for the lantern. With the locus lands coming in this deck looks some what similar to a tron list and those use very few basic lands and leverage the fact that Chromatic Star gives them colored mana. The tron lands Urza's Tower and its friends and better then 8 post. But you will need to devote 12 slots to those lands then and would probably need to cut a color. Just my 2 cents no need to take it as gospel

Ish Sah, the Vault of Whispers

Legendary Artifact Land - Phyrexian Swamp

When ~ enters the battlefield or at the beginning of each of your opponent's upkeeps, ~ becomes a 2/2 Black Creature in addition to it's other types. It is still a land.

Whenever ~ becomes tapped, you lose 3 life. Target creature gets -X/-X, where X is the amount of life players have lost this turn.

Hey, you left out highlighting or explaining the best infinite combo with Urza you have here. Urza + Myr Battlesphere + Ashnod's Altar = infinite Myrs, infinite colorless mana, infinite copies of all artifacts you control and infinite damage to each player with Breya.

Nice version so far on a semi budget, but build around the Urza + Battlesphere + Altar combo with more protection? Consider more combo protection? Urza + Battlesphere + Altar combo can be activated at instant speed at any time as long as you control all three permanents and have 6 colorless mana available. You're going to want more than 6 colorless mana if you intend to activate the combo though because you'll also want instant protection.

Darksteel Forge and Padeem, Consul of Innovation can protect Altar + Battlesphere, but they can't protect Urza without additional effect to make Urza an artifact. In the combo Urza is also not leaving the battlefield making him much easier to protect.


Assembling combos in Breya is made much easier with Wishclaw Talisman and because it's an artifact it has insane interaction with Breya. You can sac Wishclaw before opponent gains control of it, but still tutor for your card. When you activate Wishclaw it puts the entire effect as one trigger onto the stack. In response sac Wishclaw, putting it into your graveyard, then when you resolve Wishclaw trigger you tutor for your card, but opponent doesn't gain control of Wishclaw because it's no longer on the battlefield. Pair Wishclaw with Goblin Welder, Emry, Lurker of the Loch, Goblin Engineer or any other artifact recursion/reanimation source for a repeatable tutor.

Master Transmuter is powerful with high CMC artifacts especially when she can help assemble combos Darksteel Forge and Myr Battlesphere. It's also nice with Breya as a source to create more Thopters for 1 mana or to abuse any other artifact that has an ETB ability.


Consider more Pain lands and Artifact lands? They could replace some basic lands to improve color fixing/Breya interaction which can help gameplay. 23 basic lands is a lot in a four color deck.

Good luck with your deck.

I had forgotten about this alternative, but I should probably just acquire and include a Krark-Clan Ironworks as a backup to Ashnod's Altar.

Other thoughts:

Rebbec, Architect of Ascension vs Darksteel Forge

Alter the mana base to include at least one of each basic land and find room for a Solemn Simulacrum

Get a Great Furnace and Vault of Whispers in here in case I need to use an artifact search/tutor ability for a land in a pinch
