Game #211: Breya, Etherium Shaper
Location: Red Castle Games, Portland OR
Vs. Atraxa +; Grenzo (new one)
Result: Neutral Loss
I keep a 3 land hand (most of which is colorless), but mangage to Phyrexian Mana in a Spined Thopter. On turn 4 I cast an Unstable Obelisk. Grenzo hit me and exiled a Daretti from me (I thought they were friends!), and Atraxa had an early Sol Ring, Crystalline Crawler and Citadel Siege. Grenzo had some goblin babies and Atraxa managed a Corpsejack Menace.
My one fun play was on turn 6 when I was able to play Etherium Sculptor, Chief Engineer, and Steel Hellkite. I played Breya on turn 7. Grenzo died on turn 8, and Atraxa was not only at huge life, but also cast Merciless Eviction (artifacts… again), and then killed me.
About the deck( http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/to-the-thopter/ )
This was supposed to be Red-Blue Thopter Tribal (but then Wizards of the Coast repeatedly failed to make a UR Artifacts Legend). Breya meant I had to reconfigure a bit (cutting thopters) to make it worth playing 4 colors. There’s not much WB in the deck though.
