Kraum, Ludevic's Opus Discussion

Spellslinger Voltron is what I used. Lots of instants to pump, protect and remove.

You could easily run Isochron Scepter and Sunforger. Silver-Inlaid Dagger and Flame Jab are easy cuts.

I would lose the Keyrunes for Talisman of Progress and Mind Stone. 34 lands seems like you are shooting yourself in the foot.

You would probably have better results if your deck was primarily White/Blue;splashing Red. Running fewer Sorceries for more counter spells and utility Instants allows you more flexibility and control.

Kraum, Ludevic's Opus and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder are great in this deck.

@andypants040, we think very much alike, If I were to use another partner commander with Kydele other than thrasios it was gonna be Kraum, Ludevic's Opus, I do know about him. Thought Vessel is a card where I want to play the deck before I put it in just to see if it's necessary to have another no max hand effect in it and being completely honest when I first read Sylvan Library I read it wrong and thought I had to pay the 8 life no matter what which is why I didn't include it but after reading it again I am definitely putting it in. And I think I would get more value playing another win con like Laboratory Maniac or another eldrazi titan like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth. But thank you so much for commenting.

36 lands makes sense. I hope it works for you and you have fun playing EDH. It's my favorite format.

Here are a few more suggestions for you:

-- Thought Vessel is another redundant "you have no maximum hand size effect

-- Overbeing of Myth is a fun creature that nets you another card each turn and can be huge for swinging

-- Sylvan Library makes Kydele tap for 3 without any other draw mechanics which is pretty sweet.

-- I'll also put a plug in for running Kraum, Ludevic's Opus as Kydele's partner. Then you can run all the red wheel effects as well as The Locust God.

I like this. Looks fun. +1 from me

You might benefit from having The Locust God in here with all the card draw. Maybe even Kraum, Ludevic's Opus for a similar-but-different ability to your commander.

If you're looking for cantrips; I just picked up Visions of Beyond for my izzet deck (LINK) Cheers!

Thanks for all the input. I'm thinking I might mix the ideas of ZendikariWol and MagicalHacker and do Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker and Kraum, Ludevic's Opus with flying and other ways to punish playing spells. Only one issue, I only know of rhystic study and Sunscorch Regent to punish other players casting spells that would fit. Will have to look for cards to go in this deck. Maybe even add a +1/+1 counter sub-theme.

Either Zedruu the Greathearted or Ruhan of the Fomori are both pretty cool.

With Zedruu you could make a really fun group hug deck, or have a sneaky control deck with some harsh backbiting. For example, the C11 vows (eg Vow of Duty) are a really cool way to screw everyone else. Cumulative upkeep costs are an interesting way of abusing things as well.

Ruhan could also be interesting in group hug, or maybe... I have a vision for him. I want to make him a spellslinger voltron thing. With Monastery Mentors and Slip Through Spaces and maybe Zada, Hedron Grinder. Seems like it could be cool.

Exhibit C, however, is something no one has mentioned yet, not even you. It's a totally ridiculous idea. Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker and Kraum, Ludevic's Opus. A deck that punishes opponents for casting spells.

That's fair, and I considered having an aristocrat package for that reason. When it came down to it though, to put in those I would have ended up taking out things like Last Laugh and Shadowmage Infiltrator, which a big part of why I built this deck; to play a lot of my pet cards that I haven't found a place for in my other decks. If you're interested in this deck, I would recommend Vial Smasher the Fierce/Kraum, Ludevic's Opus as the generals, which I probably would have done if I had a larger budget (and weren't so in love with Thrax).
