Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest Discussion
3 days ago
Currently I'm working on a storm deck and while it started out Izzet I eventually tried Grixis which I found there was little unexplored territory there. I wanna make a deck that makes people go "what does your deck do? What? With THAT commander"? But by this I mean I don't want something obvious but want something that does help the game plan in some way shape or form. So I came to Jeskai and thought that this was my favorite 3 color combo so maybe I should try and make storm work here! And with white and Aetherflux Reservoir it should be not to hard to win games. Here are the commander choices (BTW I don't like the partners all that much.)
While an odd choice, she does give us constant life gain and card draw. Yes we have to give something to our opponents but since storm I thought maybe we can give them something such as a 0 costing artifact like Ornithopter? Might not work but we shall see.
Okay so Im scared to run her. Her abilities work really well with storm, but she gets focused SO hard when you play her. I think maybe going under the radar abit would work better.
This guy is interesting. With enough storm we can make him huge: making him another win con through commander dmg. I do feel like maybe he could easily be chumped blocked and provide little to nothing for the strategy besides a way to win (that is somewhat shaky)
Uhmmmm... I mean I guess he could chunk people down and then we have an easier time with something like Grapeshot for the kill? I'm really unsure.
Another interesting pick; putting others behind on lands so you can continue to ramp so you can cast all your spells for storm sounds interesting.
Any advice guys?

Honestly I think Zedruu the Greathearted is the most different from any commander you can do.
I wouldn't really recommend this but I will anyways Numot, the Devastator land destroy deck. Just don't expect to play it against people pretty much ever.
Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest is most efficient when used as more voltron but can be used politically when you cast on other people's turns giving their creatures double strike and other stuffs.
Ruhan of the Fomori another decent voltron guy but also loves chaos. you never know who you will kill and you can throw all the funny chaos cards in too.

Hey, I have a Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest list (Oh no, its a stormy day!) I brewed up that's pretty fun and competitive. It's a spell slinger deck with a voltron subtheme taking advantage of prowess and winning with tokens, commander damage, Aetherflux Reservoir or Chandra's Ignition. I made some purposeful choices that made the deck a little less competitive for my meta so there is room for improvement.
Only thing I would warn someone about is the deck requires a lot of skill to keep track of multiple triggers, untaps and determining a Paradox Engine + Sunforger cast chain can get hectic/time consuming (Fatal Frenzy, Vanish into Memory and Final Fortune is the usual way to end it). It's also got a tendency to have longer turns and that's ultimately why I took it apart. Anyways hope you enjoy taking a look!

Thank you, UnleashedHavok, I really appreciate that! :) I think it's safe to say that Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest is my favorite Commander, especially since he's the first I won a game with. I don't know exactly how well it works since I haven't had a chance to play with it yet, but hopefully the card draw and other upgrades help it run smoothly.

In my opinion red is really important for artifact matters, in edh the recursion from Trash for Treasure, Goblin Welder, Scrap Mastery and Daretti, Scrap Savant is invaluable. Jeskai doesn't really have a artifacts matter commander but you still have the partners and you could totally make a Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest deck that would be a lot of fun since artifacts trigger prowess. Eggs is a pretty fun way to go imo and you would have access to Chandra's Ignition as a win on.
Alternatively you could go Grixis with Mairsil, the Pretender which I think would be really fun though I haven't put it together myself yet.

I see you took out Guttersnipe, but he's an awesome win-con and much better than Young Pyromancer for edh. This seems more like a jeskai list than really a 5 color. You might consider playing with Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest instead of 5c full metal dragon.

Concise list of considerations:
The Rack single target is really crappy in EDH
Wheel of Torture Same effect as The Rack except it hits everyone.
Skullcage Hits all opponents who don't have either 3 or 4 cards in hand.
Raiders' Wake Another Caress/Megrim effect, except this one makes your opponent discard if you attack.
Quest for the Nihil Stone Anyone without a hand gets domed for 5 during their upkeep...seems good.
Bloodchief Ascension Self Explanatory card
Mindcrank This is a great card in a discard centric deck.
Get rid of all of these cards Bog Rats, Carrion Rats, Deathmask Nezumi (it's a nombo with everything you're doing), Drainpipe Vermin, Gutter Skulk, Nezumi Cutthroat, Pestilence Rats, Ravenous Rats, Swarm of Rats, and Typhoid Rats.
Relentless Rats Replace all of the cards removed with these. You are not restricted to a single copy, per EDH rules, because Relentless Rats specifically states that card limitation requirements do not apply to it.
Get rid of anything that is single target discard! Especially Raven's Crime, since you don't have enough lands that you can afford to be ditching them for a single discard.
Add more things that hit everybody, such as Necrogen Mists or are renewable.
Specter's Shroud Might be worth looking into.
You need more board wipes. You have one 9 CMC board wipe with only 32 lands in the deck. The Hyper-geometric distribution doesn't give you very good odds of pulling the lands you need in order to keep the board clear. Consider Bontu's Last Reckoning, Yahenni's Expertise, Crux of Fate (which may work to your favor with all the Dargon decks running around), Damnation is a given but it's pricey, Life's Finale, Kindred Dominance, and Necromantic Selection are all decent options.
Liliana of the Dark Realms is a much better Lili for a deck like this because you need ramp and that Ult is ridiculous plus it combos with...
Let's talk about your mana base for a second...
Thirty two lands? Even for a very cavalier spell slinger deck, that is a very low amount to play. I play a Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest deck on 36 and struggle some times to reach a critical mass of mana/spells. Don't fall into the trap of "I'll cut a land for this cheap spell; it'll be fine." Again, math and probability will not be on your side in the late game, not unless you're willing to invest in Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Cabal Coffers. An alternative might be to run Crypt of Agadeem but it's really no substitute for those lands.
Lastly, jam a Bojuka Bog or a Scavenger Grounds or both in there for graveyard hate, along with your choice of Strip Mine, Ghost Quarter, and/or Field of Ruin because if you can't have your Crypt or Coffers, why should they?
Hope this helps, good luck!
