Kraum, Ludevic's Opus Discussion

Permission to be blunt?

Whoever compiled the new draft of the Tier List (Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]) made some really baffling choices.

The Tier 0 generals are approximately correct (though Tana, the Bloodsower and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds should probably be higher), but everything below that is incredibly messed up.

Circu, Dimir Lobotomist Ghave, Guru of Spores Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker Jodah, Archmage Eternal Kraum, Ludevic's Opus Momir Vig, Simic Visionary Oona, Queen of the Fae Ruric Thar, the Unbowed The Mimeoplasm Tishana, Voice of Thunder Varolz, the Scar-Striped

These should definitely not be Tier 1. Meanwhile, Tier 2 is pretty messed up, and I don't even have enough time to type out the ways, but the short version: all three Niv-Mizzets at the same power??? Ishkanah, Grafwidow at the same power as The Locust God?? Selvala, Explorer Returned at the same power as Zada, Hedron Grinder?? Et cetera. Having played many of these, I can't agree.

I mean, I get what they're trying to do? But I think that abolishing the .5 tiers was a poor decision (since there's clear disparity within each tier) and I think they folded the wrong Tier 2 decks into the new Tier 1 category.

I feel like it is a missed opportunity not to use a Partner if you got the option. Having access to a larger card pool will give you an edge and as long as it is only a splash you won't even need to mix up your mana base much. Heck you could even just run the second commander without splashing any other cards because you have lands and artifacts in your deck that can make mana of any color. You only need to make one off color mana to play the secondary commander.

Here is my build Vial Smasher & Kraum EDH if you want to check it out. Kraum, Ludevic's Opus is great because he is just generally a strong card without needing synergy and having access to blue is huge. You get cards like Deep-Sea Kraken, Dig Through Time, and Treasure Cruise.

Another option would be Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper because a big body with life gain is nice and green gives you more ramp options and big beefy creatures. Akiri, Line-Slinger is also nice if you want to be more aggressive. Though white doesn't add much to the game plan and you don't run a lot of artifacts right now.

This deck clearly once to kill your opponent's fast and has a large artifact base already, maybe you could go into white with Akiri, Line-Slinger. I personally run this with blue and use Kraum, Ludevic's Opus.

I find even if you don't really go into those colors, I feel like the Partner is worth. There are two reasons for this. One it legally lets you run a 98 card deck, smaller starting deck means more consistent draws. Two it you have any flexible mana fixing at all, you can just randomly play your second commander even if you aren't going into the colors. Path of Ancestry and Command Tower just do that and you could easily run cards like City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Chromatic Lantern, etc.

SirSh4ggy thanks for all of those suggestions. As you mentioned its not a pure focused storm deck, but a combo-storm. The main plan is a combo: Jeskai Ascendancy, cast Kraum, Ludevic's Opus and make it letal or Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa, attack, and post-blokers make it /; or again Natural Affinity / (preferably)Sylvan Awakening and make them big enough (there I dont necessarily need jeskay), after and/or otherwise, I'll star the storm part with Grapeshot and eventually support with Mizzix's Mastery. I'll keep Aetherflux Reservoir and Mind's Desire in check especially reservoir, I play in 1vs1 but in a very competitive and aggressive meta. Rude Awakening was replaced by Sylvan Awakening, is already too high to pay.

I kind of like Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest as commander for this list. Artifact storm beatdown seems fun. That or as suggested, Akiri, Line-Slinger + Kraum, Ludevic's Opus for even more card advantage.

Akiri, Line-Slinger // Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist would fit the deck themes of artifact matters, and drawing cards. Kraum, Ludevic's Opus is another partner option with Akiri.

It sounds to me that you really want to make an energy deck. Energy representing Vibranium of course. In that case, to fully match the theme of the movie you could have partner commanders like Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and Kraum, Ludevic's Opusto represent T'challa and Killmonger. For other options you could have Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker and Akiri, Line-Slinger respectively representing Shuri (the sister) and Okoye (the really badass one). I got nothing for Martin Freeman's character I'm afraid.

In any case, I again would recommend an artifacts/energy build, with a possible sub-theme of equipment voltron (to show off when Killmonger wanted to drop all tradition and just got to war with everyone).
