Frenetic Efreet Discussion

I didn't include Frenetic Efreet because it didn't seem like a fun or fair card to play against. Goblin Engineer seems decent but it puts my Thumb in danger in case Goblin Engineer doesn't survive the turn. Thank you for your suggestions nonetheless!

Frenetic Efreet gives you infinite coin flips.
Goblin Engineer is another great way to fetch out your Thumb (or any other artifact you need).

I'm not sure if this is the best place for these discussions or somewhere on discord but...I have some additional thoughts on Mid Power commanders that should be moved up:
Zndrsplt, Eye of Wisdom + Okaun, Eye of Chaos -- This deck Coinzzzzz made it to the final pod of a cEDH tournament as reported on reddit last week. It's a 1-card combo with Zndrsplt + Frenetic Efreet . Here's another list that adopts a Polymorph strategy: Zndrsplt & Okaun - Polydox Scepter (PRIMER).
Llawan, Cephalid Empress -- Not sure if this slipped under the radar amidst the dust kicked up by the Paradox ban, but LLawan + Painter's Servant locks all opponents out of casting creatures, evening through Cavern of Souls , including Commanders. Can then assemble a Grindstone combo or perhaps Scepter combo. Here's a Scepter-less list I came across: Painter Llawan.
Kambal, Consul of Allocation -- He's a must-answer stax piece for many cEDH lists in the command zone. A High-power list Kambal's tax collection **LCL Playoff** recently won a tournament/league as reported on reddit 2 weeks ago, with about a 50/50 cEDH/high-power composition. Here's a list with a very different approach (and cEDH staples! Kambal's Pact - Vilis, Broker of Blood.
Thanks for your consideration!

I've just finished top4 in our local cedh tournament with Zndrsplt, Eye of Wisdom / Okaun, Eye of Chaos and would like to make a point thay this pair is definitely at least "Competitive". They are not a tier 1 deck, but are really close, after playing them extensively for half a year I'm sure about it.
They give you really strong draw engine in Zndrsplt (especially with easily tutorable Krark's Thumb and one card win combo with Frenetic Efreet (+flash/labman). With such compact wincon, you can fill your deck with interaction (18 counterspells/6 board interaction), ramp and some strong stax pieces (blue moon nonbasic land hate package).
It can win on turn 2-3 with goldfish hands, on turn 4-6 with normal hand and some interacton from the table.
Here is the list: Coinzzzzz

Frenetic Efreet seems like it'd be really good here. You can activate the ability 100 times and likely draw your whole deck + punch someone really hard!

Any deck is playable in commander! Is this deck top-tier competitive? No, but depending on your playgroup this deck should be fine. . I would recommend that you add more mana ramp. You've got 2 5-drop commanders and you'll want to get them out as soon as possible. Since you're in , you'll have to rely on artifacts like Izzet Signet and Mind Stone and Wayfarer's Bauble and the like. You could also use Mana Geyser and High Tide and Seething Song and Braid of Fire for conditional/temporary ramp.
You could also use more card draw. Zndrsplt, Eye of Wisdom will give you some cards, but it's a bit unreliable. Blue Sun's Zenith and Consecrated Sphinx and similar cards are great. Also, strive for recurrable draw effects.
Lastly, commander is a complicated format, but one of the good things for new EDH players is that the commander(s) can give you a focus for your deck. You can take advantage of the coin-flipping benefits from Zndrsplt and Okoun with more cards like Frenetic Efreet and Stitch in Time and Sorcerer's Strongbox and Volatile Rig .
Hope this helps! Also, +1 for including Fiery Gambit!

otters I really love Final Fortune and I'm trying to find a room for it. Sword of Feast and Famine is here for the only combo that doesn't require Frenetic Efreet . It's slow but really useful if I lose the efreet. I cut Fury of the Horde because I couldn't always find 2 red cards to pay the alternative cost and was too often a dead card in my hand, but it has a great potential and maybe I will give it another try.
I was searching for some haste enablers and these two goblins can be great, especially Torch Courier , thank you!

FrantaFire Sadly Frenetic Sliver doesn't work like Frenetic Efreet because it says "if this creature is in play", so it makes me flip a coin only when it's in play. The efreet works differently because it doesn't matter if it's still in play when I flip the coin. For this reason, if I put infinite triggers on the stack and the first one resolves, I will still flip infinite coins even if it's dead or phased out.
