Kraum, Ludevic's Opus Discussion

Thanks, maxvantage! I just updated my Commanders to Kraum, Ludevic's Opus and Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker along with a heap of other updates.

I would definitely second Keranos, God of Storms as a control commander, although I would recommend maybe going partners with Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix and Kraum, Ludevic's Opus, as Green is very helpful.

Kraum, Ludevic's Opus is pretty underrated from a pure control option standpoint. Drawing a card every time an opponent casts two spells during a turn will get you a handful of answers. 4/4 flying/haste is no joke either.

While Grim Haruspex is better for drawing because you don't have to pay the 1, I feel like Mentor of the Meek is better for snowballing. They are both good card draw options just with different purpose. I'll give Grim Haruspex a try, it is more flavorful.
While this deck is usually pretty slow, here is how I try and play in the early game.
In my opening hand I generally look for 2-4 lands, 1-2 things that ramp, and a manifesting engine (or a tutor to get one). On turns 1-3 I try and get my lands and mana rocks out (basically just play what you can), if I have the option to play my manifesting, I'll almost always play that over ramp . I generally won't play Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa during the early game unless I need to get in with Silas Renn, Seeker Adept or Jeskai Infiltrator. After that I will usually only spend around 1/2 or 2/3 of my mana during my turns and leave the rest for potential unmorphs. If I don't unmorph anything, I'll spend it on manifesting or hand/top deck manipulation at the end of my opponents turn.
I hope this helps, I'm not very good and explaining how I play.

@RazortoothMtg
Animar, Soul of Elements is normally amazing for morph, however I am only currently running 7 creatures with morph making him not all that useful. This deck has more of a emphasis on manifesting rather than morph. I have looked at all color for this deck and I thought red looked the weakest because it didn't offer any manifesting engines, or creatures that can one hit kill somebody. Black also offers more options for tutor including the transmute tutors which helps make this deck much more consistent. I do agree that Kraum, Ludevic's Opus dose make a better 'I need colors commander', but Silas Renn, Seeker Adept and Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa work together quite nicely. Skirk Alarmist is probably my biggest pull towards red, but that just isn't quite enough.
I do really like the look of Long-Term Plans, might replace Fabricate with it.
I have to pump a good amount of mana into Bane of the Living for it to be worth it for me because it will almost always wipe out all my face down 2/2. Still might be a good board wipe option though.
Strionic Resonator has the same problem Animar, Soul of Elements has, not enough morph creatures.

Thanks for your feedback and suggestions!

WOW! Amazingly well done primer. all of a sudden I feel like I need a morph deck... finally something to use my partner commanders for! How do you feel this kind of list compares tot he Animorphs lists and their potential "infinite" with Primordial Sage effects? Would you ever consider running over with Kraum, Ludevic's Opus to include Animar in the 99, is he too weak, or does black give you too much to cut?

I decided not to do zegana for the lack of tutors. Instead Im going to do Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and Kraum, Ludevic's Opus I can break it with food chain and tutor for it very easily.

I would go more all-in on the landfall-style plan. Check out 3 colour charms from Alara block and 2 colour charms from Ravnica blocks for more multi-purpose cards. I'd use all of your Maybeboard cards except Kefnet the Mindful too.

Ideas: Vinelasher Kudzu, Dreamscape Artist, Pilgrim's Eye, Path to Exile (Over Swords to Plowshares), Deprive, Knight of the Reliquary, Oracle of Mul Daya, Thaumatog, Lithatog, Scapeshift, Aggressive Mining, Dryad Arbor, Riftstone Portal, Solemn Simulacrum, maybe Awaken cards from new Zendikar?

Cards to cut: Swan Song, Swords to Plowshares (for Path to Exile), Valorous Stance (Use a charm instead), Fevered Visions, Hour of Promise, Kraum, Ludevic's Opus, Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist

Sideboard cards worth using: Blighted Woodland, Coiling Oracle, Exploration, Ghost Town, Grove Rumbler, Kruphix, God of Horizons
