Reckless Charge and Fever Charm could both work in this deck because they boost Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest and trigger prowess.

AwesomeOctopus Sure, I considered doing an all instant deck, and I believe in a future, future scenario if I would let this deck get really serious the commands are certainly up to be added, the thing here was that I was talking to a friend about Soulfire Grand Master and Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest and the Idea came of making a deck that would force you to make decisions fast. Instantly I thought of using all the charms, and the first draft of the deck contained all 45 charms (it was kinda impossible to use and I started cutting to make space for the enablers) and lastly I thought of using Ramos. But yes, a proper balance of charms and commands is super interesting! Thanks!

enpc on Good cards for Shu Yun

I have recently thrown together a casual Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest deck here:

The Most Temp

There are a lot of good non-creature cards that can be run so feedback would be good on the current list and any obvious oversights.

Thanks in advance.

Arcaneful on Jeskai STORM Commanders?

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.)

Zedruu the Greathearted :

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.

Narset, Enlightened Master:

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.

Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest:

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)

Ruhan of the Fomori:

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.

Numot, the Devastator:

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.

Razulghul on Is it Better to include ...

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.
