Wild Ricochet Discussion
1 month ago
Would Mox Amber and/or Wayfarer's Bauble warrant an inclusion to remove one land for either, and if so which one? Granted I sometimes get mana screwed despite all the lands and card draw because thats just red. But there are sometimes where I get too many lands (hence terrain generator and thawing glaciers). Thoughts?
Also, I have reverberate but was considering Wild Ricochet , too greedy?

So the best suggestion I can gather is, again depending on your play group, is the handful of black counter spells, a redirect.
Dash Hopes might get someone to change there mind on exiling your graveyard. Obviously it's a fairly easy cost to pay, but at least you can punish it.
Imp's Mischief is a little less budget, but can full on change the target graveyard.
Red should have plenty of things like Wild Ricochet to similar effect.

Initial thoughts. Deck needs to be piled out to see what needs to be shored up. Look up 8x8 deck building theory. Once its piled itll be more clear.
Sage of Fables - Expensive
Trinket Mage - Fetches nothing
Goblin Bombardment - Expensive
Spinal Embrace - really high CMC for effect
Dreadhorde Butcher - a must
Talisman of Creativity - minus a locket or signet
Stalking Vengeance (maybe)

thanks bossomus for the suggestions. I definitely think Narset's Reversal could work well, any suggestions on a cut would be great! It's similar to Wild Ricochet and Dualcaster Mage (which I used to copy an Exsanguinate one game which was sweet!
As for Expropriate , that just feels against the idea of the deck, being defensive and using other people's threats against them.
I love the idea of Desertion , which I had in an initial draft, again it's about finding room and using more unique cards in some cases I think!

EDH is really fun! Especially when you make a deck around a theme. I've made a similar Grixis theft deck with Jeleva. Here's a bunch of cards I have found fun and effective in my Grixis theft deck:
Emrakul, the Promised End , Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Grenzo, Havoc Raiser , Havengul Lich , Hostage Taker , Keiga, the Tide Star , Kheru Mind-Eater , Lord of the Void , Mindclaw Shaman , Necrotic Ooze , Nightveil Specter , Sepulchral Primordial , Sphinx Ambassador , Boneyard Parley , Knowledge Exploitation , Mnemonic Betrayal , Order of Succession , Role Reversal , Talent of the Telepath , Telemin Performance , Worst Fears , Commandeer , Desertion , Gather Specimens , Redirect , Reverberate , Spelljack , Wild Ricochet , Chaos Wand , Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker

So when I build an edh deck, one of the first things I try to figure out is how I'm going to wrap up the game. General Value can work as a strategy, where you're just trying to outvalue everyone around you, but it's really hard when you don't focus on something specific. For Riku, there are a few paths you can take:
Out - Value everyone: This is kind of the path I was talking about, with tons of valuable ETB and LTB triggers, or big things that you can play early since you're so far ahead from the earlier value plays.
Alt Wincon: Biovisionary is a good example of this - some decks pick a specific wincon that they want, it can be just one card, and build the deck trying to win around that card. (btw, Rite of Replication is amazing with biovisionary too :P) Often, these decks fall into Combo.
Now, don't get me wrong, your deck is perfectly fine as is. You have tons of value with Riku, protection for him, and a way to win through biovisionary. Could you make it more efficient? definitely. Here are some cards that I'd cut, almost no matter what direction you take the deck:
Phantasmal Terrain : I don't see what this does in your deck
Staff of Nin : Generally too slow and isn't really compatible with your cmdr
Some form of protection: While protection for your guys is great, you may have one too many

Also for card-draw cards, why not double up on the good ones?
Deja Vu , Sage's Knowledge , The Mirari Conjecture , Archeomancer, Flood of Recollection , Mystic Retrieval , Relearn , Mnemonic Wall , Scribe of the Mindful , Spellkeeper Weird , Volcanic Vision , Shreds of Sanity , Fork , Wild Ricochet , Increasing Vengeance , Insidious Will , Narset's Reversal (super baller!), Reiterate , Reverberate , Twincast , Fury Storm , Mirror Sheen , Expansion / Explosion ,

- Mono-red strategies center heavily around aggro, discard, and burn, so you're not going to find a lot of things that protect your creatures in it.
- There are some red spells that can redirect instant and sorceries such as Wild Ricochet and Bolt Bend , but apart from that, the best thing you can do is run more artifacts if you want your commander to live.
- Whispersilk Cloak , Lightning Greaves , Champion's Helm , and Mask of Avacyn are all solid choices.
- Darksteel Plate could also help you.
