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.

Riku of Two Reflections will copy hydras x/x power/toughness. Copying a spell with an x cost will copy the spell completely.

So I'm new to the format (been a long time Modern player) and I managed to convince my friends to get into EDH as well while they were completely losing interest in MTG.
I'm the most experienced player in my playgroup and helped everyone to find their commander and tune their deck. However, I just can't seem to find something for me.
I'd say I'm more of a // player, with a preference for & as they fit my personality very well. That being said, I'm interested in all kinds of play styles and colors and I feel like EDH would be the chance for me to try out new things and go wild. I especially love chaos cards (Possibility Storm, Hive Mind, you name it.) and commanders that aren't overplayed (so no Atraxa).
So far I've built:
- The Mimeoplasm has amazing colors and abilities for example, but I can't decide if I wanna go full fun or not. Also, it has so many possibilities I can't pick 99 cards to keep...
- Feldon of the Third Path is typically the kind of cards I love but gets too repetitive imo.
- Keranos, God of Storms sticks for a long time and alows me to go chaos, but it's ability is a bit boring.
- Krond the Dawn-Clad is flavorful a.f. but 6 mana's a lot and going all voltron isn't my idea of fun.
- Intet, the Dreamer is amazing fun but 6 mana for a 6/6 with no protection and that requires you to pay 3 more mana every time to activate its ability is too much to ask.
- Riku of Two Reflections drove me crazy. Too many possibilities.
- Rashmi, Eternities Crafter is nice too, but a bit weak. Also, since I added Leviathans and Krakens to the deck I just can't decide anymore.
I've read tons of threads of other people experiencing the same problem (and the 'top-bottom' / 'bottom-top' solution) but I'd like to know what you guys would advise. I also know this will probably not be the only EDH deck I build, but I want to know how you guys do it so I don't invest money into something I won't like - done it in modern already.
I love the deckbuilding process but just can't get to finish a deck. I pick a commander, find about 90-100 cards from the top of my head and then go check EDHREC and discover 40-50 more cards to add with great synergy. Then I end up with 150 cards and since I just can't sort them out correctly I completely lose it and abandon the deck.
Did you guys experience the same thing? What was your solution? How do you stick to one strategy? Thanks! :)
I feel I'm about to go crazy with this format :)
PS : last guy I'm on is Brimaz, King of Oreskos. I find him OP as hell for its CMC, has lots of flavor and think he's decent for both 1v1 and multiplayer games. Would he be too weak for a format like EDH?

I will tell ya what: My favorite commander is the first commander I build a deck around, which is Riku of Two Reflections. Why? He is a toolbox of nice things. Got a good spell you want copied? There's an app for that. Want to copy a good creature? There's an app for that. Plays in good colors? Yeah, he goes there. Play him with Time Warp et al. and you are looking at a tough deck to interact with. Now, honestly, I have played more powerful commanders, more streamlined commanders, but honestly he is the first one I remember, and the one I remember fondly.
Another one is Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, a deck I still run and upgrade quite a bit. I love the terror of playing a ton of tokens creatures and watching people's faces as the board state just gets worse and worse. The life gain is just even more gravy for the meat pie that is the token feast. I combine her with Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, and Garruk, Primal Hunter in the 99 with Rhys the Redeemed and the deck is just...yeah. People hate when I laugh evilly. Or when my life total quadruples in one shot from Trostani, a Panharmonicon and Serra Avatar hitting the board. Going from 40 to 160 is amazing.

@crowned, This is a very interesting idea. My main concern is that outside of investing some resources into making a huge mana pool, it may be a bit slow and have little impact on the board state. Gaining a counter or two every turn isn't horrible, but not exactly game breaking, although there is a lot of really great potential at controlling low toughness generals from going bonkers when he is in play (Riku of Two Reflections, Captain Sisay, Edric, Spymaster of Trest, Jhoira of the Ghitu come to mind). To address your specific notes:
- "Excess Mana Dump before every flicker - killer of stax creatures" - This is a pretty sold EoT ability, making passing with mana up much less suspicious/threatening. Definitely a +1. May even help push that last little 8-10 damage late game as a psuedo Conflagrate
- "Wincon that fits right into your infinite mana plan" - Usually if I have found infinite mana, there are already wincons available. Although this is def a quick and easy one.
- "Tutorable with Trinket Mage" - This might be what really interests me. Sometimes Trinket Mage mid to late game after finding my good targets results in me getting a Darksteel Citadel or a Voyager Staff, but this would be a nice addition to the toolkit.
All in all, I will definitely test this in a few games and note its impact. The issue is what to cut, and I think at the moment I will try taking out Crystal Shard to playtest. Nevertheless, I think this is definitely a solid addition to the sideboard when battling low-hp generals such as those I listed already.

Some time ago, I created a creature name Alejandro Alvarez, archmage adept, a creature with a focus on instants and sorceries, and I now have created a new version of the same character, as seen, below:
Alejandro Alvarez, Arcanist Extraordinaire Show
Legendary Creature - human wizard
Prowess, protection from instants and sorceries.
Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell, you may pay . If you do, copy that spell, and you may choose new targets for the copy.
This incarnation of Alejandro Alvarez is modeled after Riku of Two Reflections, but without the color green and the emphasis on creatures, instead with an even greater focus on instants and sorceries. Very few creatures have protection from instants and sorceries, so I gave that to Alejandro, which, combined with the prowess mechanic, emphasizes his skill with those spells.
What does everyone else say about this card? How well did I do with it?

I'm thinking about building a Riku of Two Reflections EDH Deck built around breaking the rules by using Mirror Gallery and copying legends like Rashmi, Eternities Crafter and Melek, Izzet Paragon. Thought, Ideas, Suggestions?
