Breya is just well rounded commander and her abilities are powerful, but not in any case oppressive. You banned Chrome Mox and Mox Diamond to specifically hurt Baral and Jace, Vryn’s Prodigy you say. Auto-suggestions v1 ... Breya, Etherium C-C-Combo Breaker! Combined with a rapidly fast clock that can kill you in 2-3 turns most of the time (depending on support) and counterspells to ruin your day, this deck is a menace that exists purely on the back of the guaranteed efficient threat a commander offers. There are other narrow and competitive formats around. The recent “partner” keyword ability stressed that reduction even more. If tiny leaders taught us anything its that – the smaller the card pool is for competitive plays, the less diverse and stale the format becomes. Moreover, such a variance currently boosts up two major decks: Baral, Chief of Compliance and Jace, Vryn’s Prodigy, that can then be cast on turn one, or where they can be recycled later in the games. These two statements kinda contradict one another. There are tons of cool potential generals, but nobody would even try to build a deck around them just because it would lose to Zurgo and Geist with 95% chance. Red is literally just there as a bonus, since there are a few actually good red cards that can go in the deck when you have other infinite combos you want to put in. It is like to start the game with 16HP, not 20. All you are doing is shifting the issue; you are NOT fixing the balance. You realize those decks made up a combined 5% of the meta in events since the change to 20HP yes? IMHO when one deck takes one third of the whole aggro metagame and two decks take two thirds of it, something goes clearly wrong. A while ago on this website there was a post in which the definition of “interesting format” had been discussed. I’ve heard the comunity moaning that changes were comming too fast. and some random Good Stuff commander. The constraints mentioned above are therefore reduced. The ridiculous amount of swing this card provides out of nowhere is not a degree of RNG I appreciate in a metagame. If your fight against zurgo, you are starting with 15 life with a fetch land. @Mel No surprise, since the shape of the format seems to be molded after the personal preferences of a select group of people. Disacknowledging facts that people point out, simply because they have a different opinion than you do is a pretty silly thing. With unlimited drawing comes near-endless opportunities and openings into the actual good combos or infinites. When Breya, Etherium Shaper enters the battlefield, create two 1/1 blue Thopter artifact creature tokens with flying., Sacrifice two artifacts: Choose one — Breya deals 3 damage to target player or planeswalker. Chrome Mox and Mox Diamond: At least somewhat justified, although I believe again, the argument you’re bringing up here is a lot better to be used against the partner mechanic, rather than Chrome Mox and Mox Diamond. Breya: Imo a bit unjustified, but hell I don’t care about that woman. Terms of Use | Combo version of the deck, on the other hand, is very powerful. Once WotC announces their 1v1 variant, it’s D-E-D dead. Mass removal even wrecks all the usual support alongside it. Long overdue. Surely you aren’t this clueless right? Silas Renn Spring 2017 Collection. Jeskai Control with two commanders. I still see Geists and Zurgos running around stealing wins, I still see the Partner mechanic that is simply giving my opponents an addition card in their starting hand and I still see way too much mono green ramp for some reasons.
