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.

Hey, thanks for commenting on my dinosaur tribal!

Your deck reminds me of a Riku of Two Reflections deck I once played and enjoyed, so I'll recommend some cards from that deck:

That's all for now. Cool deck! +1 for going biiiig!

Animar is my favorite! +1 from me

One sure-fire way to build up +1/+1 counters on animar is to bounce your own creatures and play them again. Shrieking Drake is an all-star. It can target itself then be played again. Rather than playing a 4cmc creature and giving animar only one counter, instead play Shrieking Drake three times then the 4cmc creature and animar has 4 counters! Dream Stalker and Man-o'-War are good for redundancy. Cloudstone Curio is by far the best artifact you can run in animar for the same reason. Ancestral Statue is the #1 artifact creature; once you have four counters on animar this lil guy goes infinite!

Purphoros, God of the Forge (which you have) and Impact Tremors take advantage of rapid fire creature casting. As does Soul of the Harvest and the like

I'd shoot to get your creature count up to 35+. Once animar gets huge you likely won't need the artifacts that make things cheaper. Chlorophant I'd take out since it's kinda slow, as is Argentum Armor, Goblin Game, etc

You have a decent amount of instants and sorceries. Maybe swap those into creatures that do similar effects? Mystic Snake, Draining Whelk, Inferno Titan, Flametongue Kavu, Duplicant, Phyrexian Ingester, etc. Shock and Lightning Strike can be underwhelming in multiplayer, but are decent in 1v1. Depends on what you're going for. If you're truly going for counterspells and burn; Riku of Two Reflections might be the better commander, but I personally love animar beatdown tactics

Here's my animar deck for you to check out for ideas. If you get a chance please upvote and tell me what you think! It's not perfect; but it's fun af and can outright win turns 3-4.

Cheers!

you should try Riku of Two Reflections for double the trouble.

Your Riku alter Riku of Two Reflections is wicked cool. Where did you find it?

Good name lol. Riku is one of my favorite commanders. Some cards you'll for sure want for him are:- Riptide Laboratory- Quicken since your win-cons are mostly sorceries- Dualcaster Mage + Ghostly Flicker this will allow you to create infinite mana, + Riku of Two Reflections to make infinite 2/2's, and with your landfall abilities can make infinite life. If you have Skullwinder then you can return everyone's entire graveyards to their hands, and you'll wind up with Ghostly Flicker in your hand again for instant speed abuse. That's one of my favorite combos since it's not mean, and it defuses graveyard decks for another turn.

You might consider changing out:- Mana Reflection for Mana Flare since it's cheaper and is more group-friendly.

Yes. The problem is when something like Palinchron sees play in both Animar, Soul of Elements and Riku of Two Reflections and it has 0 synergy with both even though it goes infinite with them, or something similar.

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.

Inalla seems pretty good to me. At the very least she's like a Grixis Riku of Two Reflections for wizards, and her last ability could be an outlet for Intruder Alarm combos.
