Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest Discussion

In response to your Card Creation comment, I was talking about the original Khans from Fate Reforged, not the newer ones from Dragons.

My worries on Yun is that he wants to go Voltron but I've got 2 commanders that already do that. Instead I wanted to focus on the "prowess" type effects and pump several critters as opposed to just Yun.
T&L also wanted to do the prowess type effects with cantrips of various sorts. Was also keeping it more flier tribal par se and is only dual colors not tri. Things like Charisma and Repercussion can control the board. T&L are also not viewed as a threat.

I think they both play very differently.
Zada, Hedron Grinder seems like a good general for a token strategy where you can teambuff the whole team with instants/sorceries by targetting Zada.
Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest does not really require to go wide. Notice that his ability and prowess both state "noncreature", which means that casting planeswalkers, enchantments or artifacts will also trigger him. You could play aura enchantments to buff Shu Yun which will also grant you the possibility to pay the mana to give him double strike. You could go voltron with him or just Jeskai Goodstuff.
I'll admit I don't really understand the last part about Fiery Gambit, however if you're looking to make a coinflipping deck, I'll gladly guide you to the best one I've found so far: Great coinflipping deck

Title says it all Zada, Hedron Grinder or Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest? Both have similar play styles: cast instants/sorceries on your commander, swing. Shu Yun has the added advantage of whereas Zada can buff her entire army with one spell. Yun's card draw isn't dependant on him being on the field like it is for Zada but he does miss out on funny wins with Fiery Gambit.

Will_Of_Ulamog I like the ideas but this deck generally wants to cycle more and stay low to the ground. I had Mercurial Geists and Nimble-Blade Khenra in this deck before, and both of them were underperforming. You wanna go all in on going off with a Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest combo as fast as possible, and both of those cards are mana sinks that could otherwise be spent buffing your commander or drawing cards. Pyre Hound is really interesting since it's a scaling threat, but it's very expensive so I'm reluctant to run it. And Pyromancer's Goggles looks really fun, but my issue with it is that it's SO much mana, and I rarely have a creature to slap it on since I'd rather just be buffing my commander's attack. Thanks though! :)

Thanks, hoardofnotions! Yeah, in general this deck typically tries to kill with commander damage as quickly as possible, but has other beats as backup, so Mistfire Adept is good for giving evasion to Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest.
I don't have any Snow-Covered Mountains in this deck because the average price for each version is above $2, and that's the limit for my local budget playgroup. You make a good point about artifact lands, which I had in the deck to synergize with Metallurgic Summonings. I replaced the Seat of the Synod with Faerie Conclave and Great Furnace with Swiftwater Cliffs (often better than Izzet Guildgate). My deck is mostly blue, but I'm keeping all the vivid lands since fixing for a three-color deck can be challenging.
I agree with you on Arcane Denial over Hindering Light. Oona's Grace seems a bit weak, and since I don't think I'll typically have more than 4 cards to exile from my graveyard, I think I'd rather have Plea for Power than Treasure Cruise.
What do you think? And thank you for the recommendations!

This is my first thread on tapped out, so please bear with me on any formatting issues.
I want to cut down the price to a little over 50$ and know if there are some great cards that I'm missing in the deck. I'm unfamiliar with the EDH format so this help is greatly appreciated!
Thank you so much!
