Riku of Two Reflections Discussion

whatskraken on Do you have any "pet" ...

1 day ago

I have Kalonian Hydra in my Riku of Two Reflections deck, even if it never does much.

I also really love Spellheart Chimera. Other pet cards include Stormtide Leviathan and Dominus of Fealty.

But my favorite pet card is probably Tyrant of Discord.

RazortoothMtg on Mono-Blue or Mono-Green Generals

I only have a handful of EDH decks, among them Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis, Daretti, Scrap Savant, Heliod, God of the Sun, Riku of Two Reflections, and Yahenni, Undying Partisan. After looking for a new EDH deck to obsess myself with and spend way too much money on, I decided I should finish the color wheel with mono colors. So far I have Heliod as a mono-, Yahenni as a mono-, and Daretti as mono-, so I need a mono- and mono- deck to round it out. I'm looking for opinions on the most interesting, fun, or challenging to build generals in mono- or mono-, so thanks for any advice or help or anything!

Thank you guys, Sorry I haven't replied. I had to go to the hospital, passed out because of a concussion, I'm alright. Any who, away with my life back to MTG Commander.

Ok so DrLitebur Krenko/Purphoros are both great options, I was leaning to Grenzo, Havoc Raiser. Though obviously Krenko would probably be more effective. Riku of Two Reflections Is something I should have mentioned, there's a guy in our playgroup that plays him, I just forgot cause he's not always there.

schmugluglu Brion Stoutarm is pretty cool, but honestly I just don't feel like I would enjoy it.

OMG Unlife you track me don't you? Sidisi and Skittles are both commanders I've tried to make on TappedOut, Sidisi is soooo cool, but most of friends run graveyard hate, the only one that doesn't is animar. Skittles on the other hand, has infect, he's 100% cool and really strong. Though my playgroup stays away from Infect as an honor rule.

hardhitta71194 Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind is pretty good, but I like creatures and he's kinda a mildly creatureless deck. He's just not what I'm looking for right now.

Flagellum Boy you got a couple to list here. I've already mentioned Purphoros, but you got more there to talk about. Talrand, Sky Summoner he's one I've never fully considered, lot's of creatures and let's me play with things in terms of what spells I use. I'll play with building him a bit, and see if it pops. Zada, Hedron Grinder is pretty interesting but one of my players tried to make Zada before. It didn't do very well, I'll ask him if I play around with it. Moving on. Doran, the Siege Tower OooOooh I always thought of him as the "Treefolk Guy" but I suppose you could play him a pseudo aggro and messing around with some stuff, I'll do some digging. Edric, Spymaster of Trest I've considered him, using unblockable stuff and beastmaster ascension, I legitimately feel I would use Ezuri over him, but edric would be a member of the 99.

Ok so thank you guys I will write more of these down

Thank you all, you're all awesome

Ok, you say you like copying/cloning stuff? I got the perfect commander for you.

Riku of Two Reflections

Dude has built in cloning of spells (if you decide to go the spell-cloning route) or token cloning of creatures (if you decide to go that route). Add in the appropriate stuff, and the deck is a winner, really. He is a ton of fun to play.

If you have a Panharmonicon I would definitely put it in this deck. I have my riku deck focussed on ETB effects, not only does Panharmonicon trigger the ETB effects twice, it also triggers Riku of Two Reflections's second ability twice, which can get you a lot of value out of a single creature, plus the tokens as blockers.

Link to my deck: How many ETB triggers did I get again?

If you want more stories, I shall grant them to you.

After all, it's my new favorite EDH deck, so I've played it a few times and I can recall my last game quite well.

I was playing against three opponents, the same people as before, but with different decks this time. One was Arcanis the Omnipotent, one was Riku of Two Reflections and one was Omnath, Locus of Mana. I was prepared for the hate that would come towards me, especially from the mono blue deck - I automatically assume a ton of counterspells from those.

My starting hand was pretty decent - I didn't have many lands, but I had Sol Ring, so I felt okay. Arcanis had a pretty amazing ramp engine - he played Mana Crypt, Mana Vault and Everflowing Chalice with three counters on his turn 2, which made everyone worried. I played a Propaganda early, but my opponents' decks weren't exactly creature decks, so nobody really attacked anyone. Except for Omnath later on. Arcanis cast Day's Undoing pretty early, which I could counter with Insidious Will, but I decided not to - I was pretty stuck on lands.

The stuff I drew was pretty good, but in the meantime, Omnath became a threat as well. His commander was rapidly growing and he started bashing Arcanis. In fact, his Omnath grew so big it could probably kill Arcanis with the next attack. I cast Fervor, preparing for the Narset turn. I also drew Strionic Resonator thanks to Day's Undoing, so it was looking pretty great for me.

However, Omnath became extremely threatening all of a sudden. He killed Arcanis with a 13/13 Omnath. Arcanis flashed in Snapcaster Mage to chumpblock, but Omnath cast Berserk from Mosswort Bridge's Hideaway. Then he used all of his gathered mana in the postcombat main phase, ramping up even more, playing Brittle Effigy and Yeva, Nature's Herald, among a few other things.

Now that Arcanis was out of the game, I could safely cast Narset, since Riku was tapped out. I attacked Riku and the trigger revealed Command Tower, Walk the Aeons, Spectra Ward and Conqueror's Flail. Brilliant.

My bonus turn begins. I cast Steel of the Godhead on Narset, then I equip her with Conqueror's Flail. With Boros Charm in my hand, I am able to give her double strike and finish Riku off. The trigger reveals Chandra, the Firebrand, Izzet Signet, Ashling's Prerogative and Sunder. Knowing that Omnath is a land-based deck, I don't hesitate to cast Sunder. On Omnath's turn, nothing happens because he has no mana, so he plays a Forest and passes the turn.

On my turn, I copy Narset's trigger with Strionic Resonator, revealing eight spells. One of them is Omniscience, which allows me to cast my huge hand for free. I play Temporal Trespass, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Elspeth, Knight-Errant and many other things. On my bonus turn, I buff Narset with Elspeth and swing for victory.

Once again, just one attack caused a hugely explosive turn. Omnath decided not to attack me because of my Propaganda, and instead aimed for Arcanis - because he had a ton of mana. In fact, he later told us that if he could have had another turn, he would've won the game on that turn, so Omnath prevented that. Which allowed me to take the win instead. Nonetheless, it was a fun game, at least for me. :)

I love this deck so much.

A temur combo deck that has control elements can be fun. The commander could be Riku of Two Reflections or a partner or Kraum, Ludevic's Opus and Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix.

You could also run a mardu pillow fort with Queen Marchesa and use drain effects to weaken your opponents.
