Riku of Two Reflections
Legendary Creature — Human Wizard
Whenever you cast an instant or a sorcery spell, you may pay UR. If you do, copy that spell. You may choose new targets for the copy.
Whenever another nontoken creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may pay GU. If you do, put a token that's a copy of that creature onto the battlefield.

Do you want your commander to go infinite with Shuko?
For your questions:
- You can make them whatever colors you desire.
- If you want the same style as Breya and the Lich, consider making the abilities either cost mana and sacrifice or be one time only like ETB and LTBs.
- "Whenever you activate an ability of a noncreature permanent that isnt a mana ability" See Crackdown Construct.
- A way to make most abilities on creatures balanced is to make them five-mana 2/2s. That way they die to nearly every removal spell, but if their effect is worth it you'd run it. See Riku of Two Reflections.
- I don't have a very expansive knowledge of Lore. The wiki has a few lists.

merrowMania, Actually, I've been thinking for a while now that Ramos is probably going to end up in tier 1, if only for the fact that he's a placeholder for 5C Storm that actually builds into the archetype.

im fairly certain that Riku of Two Reflections can only create a copy of Wolfbitten Captive Flip, because thats whats actually entering the battlefield. Riku of Two Reflections states "whenever another nontoken creature enters the battlefield", and Krallenhorde Killer never actually "enters the battlefield". it enters as a Wolfbitten Captive Flip, and then gets flipped.

If Riku of Two Reflections and Vildin-Pack Alpha Flip are out and a have a Wolfbitten Captive Flip enter the battlefield can I have Riku of Two Reflections make a copy of it's flipped side Krallenhorde Killer? or can Riku of Two Reflections only make a copy of the Wolfbitten Captive Flip?
I'm a little shaky on how a copy effects would work on double faced cards on the stack. I know you can put the triggers on the stack anyway you want since they both are triggering when the creature enters, I'm just not sure who needs to go on the stack first to make a copy of the flipped side of the card or if it's even possible.
Thank you for your time and help!

before I start, let me state my meta at my LGS
2 Mizzix of the Izmagnus: burn/combo
1 Keranos, God of Storms: combo/burn for the most part
1 Gisela, Blade of Goldnight: voltron
1 Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord: crappy budget build for a new player
1 Omnath, Locus of Mana: ooga booga, me play forest. ooga booga, me play creature.
1 Prossh, Skyraider of Kher + Food Chain: This person is literally satan.
Keep those in mind while I explain my predicament. In order to balance my play group, I play brago stax. one problem, I only have a budget version with the most annoying piece being Lavinia of the Tenth . I don't run any actual stax artifacts. I've been trying to design a deck that would be able to keep 5 other combo heavy/aggro heavy decks at bay over the course of a game. its not working. I know you all are out there. What are the most dickish, douchey cards to use here against this meta to keep them under control? should I switch commanders?
the deck so far:

Hey, I like your deck. I have a similar "make the opponents punch each other to death"-deck with Vial Smasher and Sidar Kondo as the generals, and the political aspect is a lot of fun.
Anyway, from that experience I would like to suggest a couple of cards you may want to think about.
On the defensive side, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker is an incredible rattlesnake. Dissipation Field is also OK, unless your meta has a lot of one-hit kills, in which case it can still convince them to save you for last. Less powerful but way more hilarious is Illusionist's Gambit.
If you want to play up the "please beat each other to death" angle, Fumiko the Lowblood, Grand Melee and since you're ramping so hard Avatar of Slaughter are all options to make things interesting quickly. Bitter Feud is also a flavourful card that doesn't risk harming you in any way and aids your opponents' demise.
If there's ever been a deck for it, this must be the one. Mercadia's Downfall will punish all of your opponents for those fancy lands you've been giving them, and you can play in on someone else's turn since it's attacking creatures and not yours. It's a one-time surprise, but I bet you most people will never have even heard of the card. Expanding on the theme, Sylvan Offering would work well both with this and with Gahiji.
Speaking of things being one-time, since you mention Treacherous Terrain as your main win condition, it might be nice to cast it multiple times. You have Archaeomancer and Eternal Witness already, but you could consider Izzet Chronarch, Mnemonic Wall and Anarchist for more castings. A more widely useful option is Greenwarden of Murasa. A more slow-and-steady plan could involve Charmbreaker Devils.
To cast it twice for more burst damage, you could include Riku of Two Reflections, who is also an all-round solid value guy, or cards like Dualcaster Mage or Meletis Charlatan. Again more funny than realistic, but these guys with Reins of Power can also let you make any two players' armies fight, with you and the defending player cooperating to have as many of both as possible killed.
I hope this gives you some ideas, at least. :)
