THUNDERBUMPS OF LIGHTNING, VERY VERY FRIGHTENING!

Since nobody seems to want to help out on this deck, I'll give you the link as a result:

Now, I have a Key as a weapon to use...

Suspects: Distorting Lens , Jaya Ballard, Task Mage , & Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient . Sadly I have no Replacement effect for Discard in case one ends up Resting in Peace in Hell... Any ideas in Boros Color?

BUUUUUUUUUUUUMPO'D!!!

I personally wonder if anyone wishes to help on this project at all? I've been working my ass off on my Superfriends/Avengers Deck, as well as cEDH Boros; but a new update has laid waste on the last of the 3: This'll sound Jank, but here are some combos I (And at least one other...) thought of:

  1. Altar of the Brood + Ancestral Statue + Rest in Peace

  2. Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Village Bell-Ringer + Phyrexian Altar

  3. Distorting Lens + Voltaic Key + Krark-Clan Ironworks + Cogwork Assembler + Jaya Ballard, Task Mage ??? (Can this be better for cEDH?)

  4. Smokestack + Assemble the Legion

  5. Feather, the Redeemed + (Is there a way to retrieve cards in exile that have been Discarded?) + (Some way to make all enemy permanents .)...

Sadly that's all I got; & it still sucks. Advice is welcome though! What'ya got?

But I also still need help on Kruphix. So, any suggestions for this as well? I think I've mentioned what I wanted enough times now... Thoughts?

It's more of a control build, using Dromar as an enabler as well as a staller. Incorporating cards like Darkest Hour to change the colors of all creature to black than using Dromar's ability to bounce all creatures.

There are a couple cards that works with this synergy like:

Not to mention with the color hacking synergy you can run cards like:

It's a fun kind of cool theme, there are a lot of color hating cards in the old days, so changing the color of the board and color haxing things is pretty funny. Although you do need quite a bit of mana to work, so Esper colors do rely quite a bit of rocks.

What do you peeps think?

Thanks for the Upvote of my Lin Sivvi Deck.

Some suggestions in addition of franknot.19 for your deck.

I also just realized that Distorting Lens combos with Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast so that they have some use even outside of playing against blue. I don't expect a lot of protection from color necessarily, except perhaps as a side-effect of a white card, but I can change the color of Jaya, Kumano, the Hammerfist Giant, etc. so that the damage comes from a non-red source if necessary.

I'm tempted to add the Distorting Lens if only because then Jaya can blow up any permanent on the board. For a 2 cmc artifact that allows me to blow up any permanent type, it sounds very tempting; tho I'm not sure how valuable it will actually be. Will I even be casting Jaya with no intention of using her inferno ability (unless I'm blowing up a blue permanent anyway)?

An interesting deck, kind of reminds me of an Ashling the Pilgrim build a buddy of mine ran. That card could get really crazy really quickly. Perhaps it is one you could consider for the 99 or an alternate commander if you want to mix things up.

I kind of respect a player who rolls Mono Red in commander, it isn't easy to get right, but when you do it is so much fun. In fact my personal favorite deck is Mono Red see Its the Wrath of Starke.

I'm also assuming you've already considered cards like Distorting Lens and Scuttlemutt to synergize with your commander? If not something to look into.

I'm also surprised to not find a Chandra, Torch of Defiance in this list. She is just so flexible.

A Star of Extinction might also not be too bad. Solid board clear that can deal with a pesky land and synergizes with Stuffy Doll. Volcanic Offering and Frenzied Fugue are also quite nice, but sadly neither is available in foil.

Play Ensoul Artifact over Tezzeret's Touch so the card doesn't get returned to its owner's hand.

You don't seem to be playing very many cards that are able to change the color of a creature, here are some suggestions:
