Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest Discussion

freshdemon on Suggestion for an EDH deck ...

2 days ago

In my experience control decks tend to scale well to a large array of powerlevels. Assuming you run control finishers like Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur or Chromium, the Mutable and not combos.

I played only control decks for like a year and was not disappointed. Now I've switched to play alot of Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest to target that one guy that always brings their competetive deck to the casual table.

Don't be that guy.

I've actually made a monk tribal deck if you want to take a look at it.

Monastery Elite (EDH Tribal Series #11)

Commander / EDH Darkshadow327


I also have a complete tribal series if you ever want to make another tribal deck (I know, shameless self promotion :P)

The trick with monks is to get enough non-creature spells because monks tend to care about that, while at the same time having enough monks to make use of them. Personally in my deck I'm able to use Narset, Enlightened Master (main commander) and Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest (secondary commander).

Narset or Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest are good options for heading the deck, either one will want you to run mostly non-creatures and prowess on your creatures.

If down the road you don't want it to be a theme deck anymore both of these commanders are solid build arounds.

There are other legends, looks like mostly green but I don't think there is quite enough mono-green for a deck. You don't have to run a monk as your commander but you are building a theme deck so may as well stick to the theme.

Oh and I don't like Lightning Greaves in this deck. Ya it's so important to protect Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest but shroud is not good in this deck. You need to target Shu Yun in order to win most games and shroud does not let you do that. I would replace it with Open the Armory, that will let you fetch up Swiftfoot Boots, any other equipment or even something like Aqueous Form for the unblockable. If you find you like Sunforger, Open the Armory is good for finding that.

I kind of like Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest as commander for this list. Artifact storm beatdown seems fun. That or as suggested, Akiri, Line-Slinger + Kraum, Ludevic's Opus for even more card advantage.

So many comments! Thank you for your thoughts and insights.

I will work them into the next update. Some more specific comments:

  • Icbrgr I These rebound spells are cheap and target twice, but are not really impactful enough. After I have deployed some heroes I can afford to pay more if the benefits are worth it. Same for the ordeals. Probably still better then some of the spells I use currently.

  • cdkime Progenitus and Karona, False God are just not where I want to be. The others have to be better then the slivers, what I doubt honestly, even with 2 more cardslots. Still worth some testing.

  • enpc I could go for a more 'streamlined' build, but would have to reduce the number of heroes by a lot. I don't think I want to be more all in, even if Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest and Jeskai Ascendancy sounds pretty sweet. In 1v1 commander I would be 100% on your side. It just would be a different deck concept. Manabase will be updated, even though I will personally aquire those lands slowly over time.

  • PurpleGame0 worth testing I think. Thank you.

I will work and come up with a second iteration. Probably done by thursday.

I think if you want to make the deck more streamlined, I would either make it a boros deck with Anax and Cymede as commander with a bunch of buff spells and token production or use Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest to give you access to blue.

But just putting a bunch of heroic cards in the deck and a bunch of buff spells seems underwhelming. Also, Isochron Scepter feels like it should be a must here as it casts the imprinted spell.

As for your mana base, if you want to make a deck more competitive, the first thing you can do is cut the ravnica bounce lands. They are too slow and not worth running.

Hi precociousapprentice,

I am a huge fan of your Queen Marchesa deck, in fact it is my favorite commander deck on this site and it's a deck I would love to pilot one day because it looks like a lot of fun and is absolutely perfect in my opinion. I was just wondering what your opinion was on Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest as an Aikido general because I would like to incorporate some Aikido ethic in my current Shu Yun deck and possibly convert it to an Aikido deck entirely if possible. If you don't mind I would really appreciate some input and thoughts on this if you see potential in Shu Yun and if not what Jeskai generals do you think appear to be the most fitting at the helm of an Aikido oriented deck? I don't mean to advertise on here, but here is my Shu Yun decklist.


It is currently set up as a Spellslinger Voltron deck, but I want to add more Aikido elements to it. Feel free to comment on my wall or on my decklist if you get a chance because I would really like to hear your opinion on this. Thank you.
