Magiclike_a_BOSS on Who Will Win? let's Flip a Coin!

Hi i have a suggestion you could make a Risky Move by playing Krark's Thumb but beware of a Chance Encounter with the Mogg Assassin who is running a Illicit Auction witch do to Puppet's Verdict is illegal and anyone caught will be subjected to the Planar Chaos and that doesn't feel good. :)

No, it doesn't. A player wins a coin flip when he chooses the side of a coin (heads or tails), flips the coin, and the side that comes up is the side chosen by the player. Whenever that happens, you put a counter on Chance Encounter. However, Ral Zarek is an object and even though its ultimate requires flipping coins, you don't win or lose any of those flips, regardless of whether one or more flips come up heads.

I was messing around with a random Coin flipping EDH style, and both my friend and I weren't sure if Ral Zarek's -7 ability would count as winning the toss. I'm assuming it doesn't since it doesn't explicitly say you win, it says if they coins come up heads. But I just wanted to see how well it worked with Chance Encounter.

also Chance Encounter, Recoup and Mana Clash feel like fun inclusions.

Redace878: Yeah, Krark's Thumb and Chance Encounter will definitely be in! Unfortunately I won't be able to use the Stitch in Time as my deck is green, red and black. Using Shattergang Brothers as my commander.

RazortoothMtG: Thanks for that! I used the Gatherer lists, but the one you put up is so much easier to look through and check rulings. :)

Nice to see another chaos deck!

I can't see my favourite chaos artifact -> Timesifter, this really is crazy in multiplayer games.

You are running Thieves' Auction, so how about Brand?

Another chaos thing you might think of are wheel effects like Windfall or Molten Psyche.

Also, think about coin flips. They are somehow chaostic. I mean Mana Clash or Game of Chaos. And if You want to go this road, Krark's Thumb and Chance Encounter are musts. Also Goblin Bomb is a lot of fun.

What about Goblin Game? This is also crazy in multiplayer games. In my playgroup we resolve it by writing down numbers and revealing them at once.

For more stuff You might want to check my Chaos does not choose its enemies. Chaos deck.

Thanks for the upvote maxon!

For Goblin Bomb, it is working fun, but not really as I expected. Players are actually really scared of it and often start targeting me as soon as it hit the board. Others are removing it asap but sometimes it sticks the board and it gets politicial about who shouldn't I bomb. But it is a lot of fun, pushing Chance Encounter forward.
