airbornezenith Also it plays out super fast, I usually slap out a or search it out with Whir of Invention or Reshape by turn 4 or 5. I usually end the game with beats, infect, or by stealing permanents with Memnarch. Am going to be running Burning Wish for fun jank like Thieves' Auction and Tunnel Vision or good stuff like Time Stretch

@berryjon Goblin Guide was just an example of a card, since you are after all comparing commander with modern and standard and want EDH to be more similar to them in the regard of said "aggro viability".

As for the designed to dupe aggro decks part first off I think you confuse cEDH with normal EDH. Are RW cards worse than BUG in cEDH? Certainly. But this is not true in casual EDH where the best card ever is stuff like Thieves' Auction, Sunbird's Invocation or Revel In Jank. In that sense all this mess would have been avoided if only you had titled this article "Competitive EDH's flaw".

Second the format is multiplayer and that's a very big difference from 1v1. It's not the increased life total, it's not the singleton, it's the fact that you have 3 other people who know your plan is to smack face from turn 1. I'm 99,7% sure that if you try to play aggro in a FFA multiplayer with 3 other modern/standard decks at the table, you'd end up with the same result.

@Sarkhan420 I meant for the lack of a better word" in the sense that aggro in EDH is more like combo-aggro Brudiclad/Inalla/Kiki, or set up an Alpha strike Triumph of the Hordes style rather than aggro in modern which is for the most part either turn sideways or burn spells from the start.

Grafdigger's Cage, Torpor Orb and Humility. These you could perhaps run.

What about Control Magic, Take Possession, Confiscate, and Corrupted Conscience? That his commander or the problem and make it his problem.

What about chaos. Scrambleverse, and Thieves' Auction

Telepathy and Deep-Sea Kraken I do not see helping the deck have a better chance to win the game. Telepathy is sure to slow down a game and bring you some strong table hate in my opinion.

Laboratory Maniac as another win con with Frenetic Efreet

Fabricate , Muddle the Mixture or to go find your Thumb?

Fling , Warp World and Disrupt Decorum I would think would be a better fit than Telepathy and Deep-Sea Kraken. They keep up the Chaos theme.

Orcish Captain . Thieves' Auction are filler options as well.

Rootwater Diver , Argivian Restoration, Reconstruction , Junk Diver to return Krark's Thumb. Recoup for sorcery Body Double and remove about 7 lands.

Garmads I wouldn't take out Aggravated Assault because it's way too fun for that. Kaboom! is definitely a must have because it's so much fun and it adds the randomness that red can give you. Dualcaster Mage, Fire Servant, Tunneling Geopede, Sunbird's Invocation, Stolen Strategy, Thieves' Auction and Bonus Round are also really fun.

for a more budget and casual version. maybe take a look at my deck: Neheb, The Fireflinger (MRB-Ramp)

Thieves' Auction is also fun.

As far as being underrated goes, you could always tune down other parts of your deck with a sub-optimal thing here or there so you look a little more innocuous until you can chuck out some massive chaos-y randomness!
