Time Stop

Instant

End the turn. (Remove all spells and abilities on the stack from the game, including this card. The player whose turn it is discards down to his or her maximum hand size. Damage wears off, and "this turn" and "until end of turn" effects end.)

Go ahead and replace Merchant Scroll with Enter the Infinite , I am sorry I missed that, in my last post. BTW use Time Stop when you used it to go off, and forget the cantrip part!

Rhadamanthus on Sundial of the infinite interactions

dragonstryke58 already gave the details, but here they are again: The End Phase has two steps - the end step and the cleanup step. When you use an effect like Sundial of the Infinite or Time Stop to end the turn, the game skips straight to the beginning of the cleanup step. Effects that last "until end of turn" or "this turn" wear off at the beginning of the cleanup step, meaning the last ability on Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion ends. The mana won't stay in your pool after the cleanup step ends.

TheAmazingSteve on Riku of Two reflections

Came here from help forum. It would be helpful to know what your deck wants to do, that way I don't end up suggesting bad cuts.

Hydroid Krasis unfortunately does not work the way you want it to. It only draws and gains life for the first half, and then the second half from Riku does nothing and dies as it is a 0/0 with no +1/+1 counters.

A lot of your counterspells like Time Stop are way too much mana. To be more effective you want low drop counterspells like Counterspell , Negate , and Essence Scatter , as you do not have to leave up as much mana in order to use them.

You have a lot of planeswalkers. Planeswalkers in EDH generally draw a lot of hate and end up being a weaker card type overall unless you build your whole strategy around them.

I feel like this deck would want to have more instant/sorcery ramp than artifact due to Riku? Maybe Rampant Growth and Explosive Vegetation ?

Maybe add some creatures with higher impact. Some of the creatures, like Skarrgan Hellkite , don't really do much in EDH. Wiser includes would have powerful enter the battlefield effects like Terastodon , Woodfall Primus , and Brutalizer Exarch .

Hope this was of some help!

Also, Time Stop would be funny, and you can make it so you don't have to keep donating their 'commanders' back to them.

really nice deck my friend. Seems a tiny bit slow for the format tho.

Remand , Force Spike , Mental Misstep , Spell Snare and/or Memory Lapse are strong counterspells in the format. You should have a try instead of Arcane Denial or Dissipate . If you run Tolaria West only for Pact of Negation maybe have a try on Rishadan Port instead (useful wih 41 lands) or even basic because Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon are some dirty things in the format.

Tempo spells such has Into the Roil or Blink of an Eye could be great too especially instead of expensive spells that could stay forever in your hand early game ( Medomai the Ageless , Time Stop ...). Your way to kill is commander. The rest of your deck should be heavy and early control. Half of the deck kill turn 5 in the format :) that's why I suggest you to lower your curve a bit (especially with the counterspells I listed)

I have a strong list of counterspells on my main deck profile if you're interested (in the deck and maybeboard section) : https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/primer-is-kumena-competitive-duel-cmdr-20-hp-1/ (thumbs are appreciated :D)

If you want to brew further here is a list of all the most played cards in the format (you can filtered by colors, types and so on)

Daedalus19876 on Thousand Cuts: Tetsuko EDH [PRIMER]

TheRedGoat: Honestly, Scroll Thief and Smuggler's Copter SEEM bad, but they consistently draw me into my lands and my control pieces. I'm never ever disappointed when I see them in my opener. Inundate isn't a bad idea XD but I'd rather just play Merchant Scroll / Spellseeker to grab Cyclonic Rift for example, in that slot. The other rattlesnakes are... okay? But I'd usually prefer outright control or counters in that slot (I don't like giving my opponents choices when I punish them). I tested Hidden Strings , Last Thoughts , and Hands of Binding , but they all got cut :( Last Thoughts is strictly worse than Scroll Thief in this list, and the other two were too low-impact overall. The issue with Sakashima's Student and Ninja of the Deep Hours is that they're only unblockable ONCE in this list (they have too large of a P/T to be unblockable here). Teferi's Veil and Siren Stormtamer might have a home here, avoiding removal? Honestly unsure, I've definitely considered both. Prying Blade ups my power, which I actively want to avoid XD Verity Circle might make it in here, it's been really REALLY good in The Locust God , though Rhystic Study would get that slot first. Murmuring Mystic could be cute I suppose (paired with Bident of Thassa ? wooooooo that seems hilarious). But Time Stop really isn't my jam in multiplayer: it makes me tap out and be unable to answer anything :( Thanks for the thoughts!

TJFNIJ: Oh, that's cute XD I like that, but it's 10 mana before I get the pump effect (assuming I want to pay echo), so I think I may have to skip it for now.

I see you have managed to get it down to the 100 that you need. Here’s a few card ideas to get mass amounts of cards into your yard and ways to protect the yard.

Your Glen Elendra Archmage will stop all other yard hate. Speaking of Glen, here’s a way to use her more than once per turn. Melira, Sylvok Outcast will turn Glen into an infinite Negate so you can counter any non creature spell you don’t like, not just graveyard hate.
