Whims of the Fates
Starting with you, each player separates all permanents he or she controls into three piles. Then each player chooses one of his or her piles at random and sacrifices those permanents. (Piles can be empty.)

When building a commander establish the goal of the deck and what type of play group the deck will fit into. You don't want to bring a tank to a pillow fight. If you're looking to make her competitive it's not terribly hard. Her ability is busted and scales really well if your opponents are also playing a bunch of degenerate stuff.
Highly competitive I'd recommend playing a storm version of her with Aetherflux Reservoir and ad nauseum; though I will not this leads to very linear games and your friends will groan every time you slap this type of deck on the table.
Medium - something along the lines of Aggravated Assault and Sword of Feast and Famine . Granted infinite combat steps will probably win the game this requires a higher mana commitment and is much easier to deal with than storm
Casual - chaos spells. Personally, I hate this archetype because it takes away skill based decisions and turns everything into RNG. Whims of the Fates , Kaboom! , and Order of Succession are examples of this.

Red is the best for forcing decisions. You've got Whims of the Fates , Stronghold Gambit , Breaking Point , Browbeat , Flaming Gambit , Vexing Devil and Blazing Salvo , among others. But black isn't so bad itself, including Dash Hopes , Lethal Vapors , Temporal Extortion , Volrath's Dungeon and the aptly-named Choice of Damnations . Eye of Doom might also be an option for forcing people to choose which permanent to put on the chopping block.

So I'm trying to make a deck for my friend for his birthday and he likes Greek Mythology, specifically Poseidon, Hades, and Zues in this order. I'm wanting to stay in the Theros block and have 3 deck ideas but I need some advice and criticism because I don't want to make him a weak deck.
Here are what I've made:
The first one is using Heliod because I made this first and forgot there is a god that looks like zues but in MTG Heliod is the "Leader" or Highest ranking or whatever.
The second one is using Keranos and white humans so its 4 colors instead of 3.
The third one is sticking to the block and theme but also sticking to heroic and scry.
I have always been bad about including a safe amount of land in my decks so that is something i really need help with. I also wasn't sure if this was the best way to show the decks or if i should've just copy and pasted each text.
Sorry for the long post. Wasn't sure how to do this.

Seeing as you're already the wacky mono red deck and are trying to cast big spells Id suggest Mana Flare . It might make people less likely to target you if they're getting a sick mana buff and you need the mana to cast big spells. Some of my personal favorite chaos cards (if you don't mind slowing the game down a little) are Whims of the Fates , Grip of Chaos and Possibility Storm . Love the idea and I swear to god I'll +1 any deck with Tibalt as the commander.
