Ophidian Eye Discussion

Sheld on I'll hold on to that for you!

As for the rest, I agree that Callous Oppressor is not the greatest card because it only steals one creature at a time but I don't think the fact that you can't steal one creature type makes it much worse (also you choose which opponent chooses the creature type so just don't choose tribal player and most of the time the player will just protect his commander and not much more with this) and I thought it can be a fun political card so I wanted to show it to you.

Secondly, I definitely don't think you should change any of your boardwipes, the suggestions were just what you could add if you wanted more of them.

And lastly, I have to agree that Drift of Phantasms would make the deck less fun (but more powerful). I probably wouldn't even run Curiosity and Ophidian Eye if I made this deck because from my experience infinite combos make decks a lot less diverse as you tend to win a big percentage of games with them.

Hi NV_1980,

I love this deck! I really like when people go off the beaten track and come up with something original in their decks and I also like when cards in a deck synergize well with each other instead of being powerful good-stuff cards and you certainly accomplished both of these with this deck.

It is hard for me to give advice on deck without play-testing, so I will just write down some cards that seem to fit your deck well, but you will know better if they are actually worth playing.

Venser's Journal and Teferi's Puzzle Box might be really fun additions to throw in, plus the later of the two is super disruptive to your opponents while you can basically just gain seven new locusts.

Consecrated Sphinx is an all star and so is Rhystic Study.

Ophidian Eye and Curiosity can go infinite with Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind

fist of the suns is going to help you cast your expensive dragons a LOT. I def recommend putting that in.

Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund is essential of course, but if you needed a budget alternative to the Tyrant, Dragonlord Kolaghan will give your guys haste. Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind is an awesome combo-card and will give you card advantage all while pinging your opponents or their creatures. He goes infinite with Curiosity Ophidian Eye Snake Umbra and Keen Sense

Skyline Despot is a good dragon that produces more dragons and gives you Monarch which helps you with drawing cards as well. If someone takes monarch away from you, just throw down Stormbreath Dragon and make him monstrous, punish those control players that like to draw cards. Moonveil Dragon gives all your creatures firebreathing and that can be crazy. Dragon Mage can reset your hand and mess up an opponent or two at the same time. Scourge of the Throne is bonkers if you can afford it.

Xenagos, God of Revels + Atarka, World Render + your commander is an instant kill with commander damage.

Play a few multicolored spells with Ramos, Dragon Engine on the field and then produce some mana with him and throw down Dragonstorm. Whats better than playing cool dragons for FREE?

Thanks for upvoting and suggestions.

Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind might be added to maybeboard, however Im afraid that in multiplayer games he will be underwhelimng.

Curiosity and Ophidian Eye as You said, will not benefit me as much as I would like to due to lack of creatures.

Hidetsugu end games too often, which means I wont include him.

Jhoira of the Ghitu also was the commander here at the beginning,but I found that hardcasting chaos stuff is faster than suspending. Also, a lot of players expect Jhoira to drop boardwipes and Fatties and are instantly targetting me.

As I said, for Jhoira it is typical to drop boardwipes and big fatties like Eldrazi Titans at once. But for chaos... I dont really know. Best thing is that suspending goes throught Possibility Storm untouched.

Looooove this deck, +1 from here :D

I have build my own EDH Chaos deck, i used Jhoira of the Ghitu as my commander, wished i had seen the potential in this commander and the support you have found for it, might swap them out and rebuild it because i agree with you 100% that it gets boring without a win condition :)

I have some cards in my mind that could go with this decks card draw-burn theme :)

Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind: Has both the burn and the card draw going for it.

Curiosity/Ophidian Eye: You do not have a lot of creatures, so this might not be the best extra card draw, but it could go infinite with Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind.

Heartless Hidetsugu: Kinda fun making everyone lose half their life, and with either Dictate of the Twin Gods or Furnace of Rath it might kill some people.

And lastly, do you know some combos and/or win conditions that can be used in a chaos deck with Jhoira of the Ghitu as the commander, or just general combos? :)

Looks very good. But how should Bident of Thassa + Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind work? The Bident clearly says "combat damage" and Niv Mizzet does not combat damage with you drawing. This can't go infinite unless you use Ophidian Eye or Curiosity instead of the Bident.
