Latest Decks as Commander
Keranos, God of Storms Discussion
1 month ago
Hello. This is my first post on the first commander deck I have ever built.
After peeping the nigh-immovable Progenitus, I knew right away I wanted it as a commander. I'm sure many of you have thought the same. Of course, I did not want to break the bank, so I kept the deck under 60 dollars. Some of the cards I already own, such as Keranos, God of Storms and Chromatic Lantern, so that reduces the deck cost significantly.
Basically, I did some research on EDHREC and Youtube to see what other people were doing with Progenitus on a budget. There were control decks that fog away damage into board wipe then Progenitus. I also found a deck that used curses as well. Many had overlapping cards such as Jodah, Archmage Eternal. I ended up with a deck that has a little of everything. Ramp with treasure tokens and land-fetch into curses and creature-wipe. Of course, I have creatures of my own, but they are sparse. I also make use of about five different Ultimatums in the late game to spice things up a bit and turbo ahead of my opponents. Lastly, two Vraska planeswalkers help out by chipping away at the opponent.
In essence it is a chip-damage control deck. I have played seven or so test hands with the deck and they all seemed too good to be true. It begs the question, does it need to be more stream-lined than it is? Should it focus solely on curses and enchantment synergy? Also, is Niv-Mizzet Reborn pointless since I hardly use any color pairs? If so, how could I enhance Niv-Mizzet's utility by adding cards?
I was so excited i just threw alot of things in here, and it is surprisingly balanced color-wise. Finally do you see any glaringly obvious weaknesses in this deck?

To answer your question about Helm of the Host I wouldn't swap it out for Keranos, God of Storms. I also wouldn't run Helm if you don't have a way of winning with it though. You could run Godo, Bandit Warlord to combo with it, but unless you actually have a wincon involving it, I would just swap it out for something else.

I've recently gotten into commander. I've built a deck with the cards available to me with Riku of Two Reflections as the commander. Other staple cards I have for this deck are:
What sort of strategies should I use with Riku being a commander. Should I be focusing more so on duplicating creatures or other spells? Do the other cards I've listed work well with Riku, or should I focus on solely building around Riku's ability? What are some cards I should look into for a red green blue EDH deck with Riku as the commander?
All comments thoughts and suggestions are more than welcome, thank you all very much.

I agree with basically everything the above guy said, EXCEPT Keranos, God of Storms
Dude is an absolute power house in ALL decks. Is he “better” in some than other? Sure. But that doesn’t diminish his extra card every turn and near-impossible removability.

I've got some experience with nekusar, generally you don't want to give your opponents options, or only target a single player when you can hit the whole field. I would cut Browbeat, Keranos, God of Storms, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Mana Leak, Reminisce
As an alt wincon you can consider Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, Laboratory Maniac and Thassa's Oracle so you can deck youself out safely. Mindcrank also forms an infinite combo with Bloodchief Ascension
I'm not sure about what your budget is, or the deck you were inspired by, so I hope this helps.

I have a red/blue deck that currently has 62 cards, so I need to remove two cards from it, to bring it to the ideal amount of 60 cards.
I have decided that I shall remove either Jhoira of the Ghitu or Keranos, God of Storms from the deck, but I am uncertain which is more less essential to the deck and, thus, more disposable; Jhoira has a lower cost and is always a creature, but Keranos is indestructible, and both of them have very useful abilities.
What does everyone else say about this? Which card should I remove from my deck?

I have reduced my red/blue deck to 62 cards, so I now need to remove only two more cards from it, and I would like to have advice on which cards to remove.
I plan to remove either Jhoira of the Ghitu or Keranos, God of Storms, but I am not certain which is less important to the deck; Jhoira has a lower mana cost and her ability is very useful, but Keranos is indestructible and also has a useful ability.
What does everyone else say? What cards should I remove to reduce my red/blue deck to 60 cards?
