Whirlwind of Thought Discussion

I like all all of the suggestions in fact I'll definitely try out Sevinne's Reclamation and Jeskai Ascendancy I was already searching for a "card draw enchantment" so it's between Jeskai Ascendancy , Mystic Remora or Whirlwind of Thought . the last one is great cause it combos with Omniscience but can potentialy deck me unless I donate a Naset to the opponent I guess :D But Jeskai Ascendancy goes better with Sevinne's Reclamation so I lean more towards it.
As for the others:
- Copy Enchantment I've run it and it's really good but decided to replace it for Mirrormade but MAYBE i'd expand max to two cards that copy enchantments - the effect is definitely powerful combined with the other enchatments
- Cast Out very good flash Oblivion Ring now i'm looking for a creak to include it
- Estrid's Invocation good card, have it in my other enchantment focused EDH, but does not really make the cut. The versatility of reentering the battlefield as something else you have does not offset the ability to target your donated oblivion ring if the timing asks for it IMO. Also can't abuse any enter the battlefield effects.
- Thought Vessel good stone but I'm not sure I can slot it in just for the no maximum handsize it brings
Again, thanks for the suggestions, this is just my thought process behind it :D

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:
- Dramatic Reversal --> Artificer's Epiphany
- Grand Architect --> Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge
- Goblin Engineer --> Renowned Weaponsmith
- Whirlwind of Thought --> Jhoira's Familiar
- Spire of Industry --> 1x Swamp
- Glimmervoid --> 1x Mountain
- Caves of Koilos --> Brightclimb Pathway
- Shivan Reef --> Riverglide Pathway
If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Hey KongMing thanks for the suggestions but card draw isn't usually an issue that I run into enough to justify Whirlwind of Thought . I can see Narset of the Ancient Way having some use and may try her out in a variant, along with Shark Typhoon though they would probably fit better in the 80 card yorion version of this deck. I have really tried to streamline this version into boardwipes, exile effects, and protection for the shrines. Thanks again for the feedback.
-Ugin Update- I can't believe I hadn't thought about it but Sorcerous Spyglass is now this decks answer to Ugin.

Shark Typhoon might also be hilarious, too.

I have and it's a very fun deck. I really love making decks that overflow with synergy and theme. It's more fun to me than every deck having 50% of the same cards. That's why there's no cards like Preordain , Ponder , Swords to Plowshares , Force of Will , etc.
All the removal in this deck also has the ability to target my own creatures - Selesnya Charm , Dromoka's Command , etc. So this kind of build probably won't be best if you have a very competitive playgroup, although it is very explosive so you could maybe steal a game or two. Several of the enchantments when combined on the battlefield give the deck an almost combo-esque feel (eg, Underworld Breach + Song of Creation / Whirlwind of Thought ).
It could easily be honed with 1 mana cantrips and a couple counters if that's what you're looking for.

Kenrith is a power house just by himself. I use Biomancer's Familiar and Zirda, the Dawnwaker to reduce the cost of those abilities. It gets out of hand very quickly. I don't play the deck often because I pretty much always win. Mine just focuses on cycling creatures and pulling them back out of the graveyard with Kenrith. And somehow, I've never seen Whirlwind of Thought . I know I have some decks that could use it!

not sure how I feel about Phyrexian Triniform for 9 mana its a bit much. I have tried Thran Temporal Gateway and Quicksilver Amulet I think your curve is too low to make good use out of them as well. I think you may be light on the card draw have you considered cards like Vedalken Archmage, Whirlwind of Thought, Shimmer Dragon, Riddlesmith

Could this deck benefit from something like Trail of Evidence. I find myself running out of cards as the game goes on plus you hold up mana anyway for responses. I was looking for a Whirlwind of Thought-like effect in azorious colors and this was the closest I could find.
