Zedruu the Greathearted is another option.

Only thing I would suggest changing is having 2 Commanders who share at least one color.

The reason I say this is because it widens the possibility of deck designs. For example, suppose you want to run Jeskai. You are limited to literally four commanders.

Now, you could always run one of the two 4C Commanders within the Jeskai sphere, or even run a 5C Commander and ignore the other colors, but having the ability to run two Commanders who are linked by a single color opens up so many more options and thus so many new deck designs.

For example, linking white, you could do this:

I would also recommend a starting life total of perhaps 55, giving everyone more time to play their deck. :)

I LOVE this deck strategy, and there's a lot of cards that can support it (it's also super fun in commander). You are in red so if you want to go the Traitorous Blood , Hijack , etc. route, you easily can.

First thing that comes to mind of though is Knowledge Pool . Absolute sh*tstorm every time, so much fun.

Lastly, you have a bunch of other things thrown in here that don't follow this game plan (but do follow the game plan of your commander well). Things like Tatyova, Benthic Druid . I'm thinking you should make this specific deck less of a Stealing Deck, and just make it a better Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis deck. Then take all your Stealing cards and pick a different commander for that deck strategy (because it does sound super fun).

Some options for different commanders could be: Show

This is all off the top of my head, but I hope you get some help from it.

@pizzagod13: Sou kaa...

Which is odd, since I was planning to use Zedruu the Greathearted at the helm; likely for Team USA reasons. :P But seriously, after seeing so many Queen Marchesa Aikido decks, I was asking myself if I could even incorporate such elements to Zedruu as well. But if Phelddagrif can do something like that better, I might as well do something of that kind better.

Question now: What Country's current official flag only has Bant Colors? XP

@Gidgetimer: Yeah... I was (Still am...) all over... I was trying to see how Grim Monolith could work on this. Even w/ though, it's out of reach. Anyway, knowing know said combo is impossible, I suppose this can be closed; I'm thinking of updating my other decklists after some time (& testing a cEDH Boros Deck against even Tier 3 Decks for now...). BTW, what do you think of this weird idea?: A Group Hug Deck that incorporates Aikido strategems? Seems crazy, but I think it could work; maybe Zedruu the Greathearted could do this...

@ enpc Booth Render Silent and Counterflux have been in the deck since its first version. Yet I came to the conclusion that I neither want, nor need counterspells in my deck. I haven't playtested it thus far, so I'll definetely keep them on the maybe-list if it shouldn't work out too well...

For the gameplay-perspective: The idea is to have Sunforger in the game as early as possible. If not at hand allready, use it to play Tithe and search for your Mistveil Plains . As you might allready be aware of, this allows you to put the spells just cast with sunforger back into your library. It isn't the idea to have as many sunforger-options as possible, nor to build the entire deck around it. The Hammer shall simply act as a tool for needed answers. The sunforger allows us to have all the answers we need, id this bordwipe protection due to Boros Charm or creature removal due to Swords to Plowshares . We can even tutor up Tithe if we would be missing a land-drop otherwise, or repeatedly cast Enlightened Tutor to develop our board. Even with this small selection of targets the sunforger has proved itself to be a very usefull tool in the deck. :)

@ arthursteel This are all great suggestions, some of which I allready had in the decklist :) The great thing about Zedruu the Greathearted as a commander is that she is so nonlinear and versatile. You can play her in many directions: While your friend seemed to be going for a chaos-style deck, I'm trying to build my deck the political way.

ALL PROBLEMS SOLVED! Zedruu thanks everyone who's been so kind helping her in her dilemma. May the divines bless you all!

Hello everyone,

I need some help with my Zedruu the Greathearted Deck: There are two cards I really want to have in the deck. The problem is that I really have no idea what to put out, as every card is important and has its purpose...

The cards I want to put in are:

1.) Steelshaper's Gift (ALLREADY FOUND ITS WAY IN) as another way to tutor up Sunforger or probably Darksteel Plate as soon as it is in the deck...

2.) Obviously Darksteel Plate (ALLREADY FOUND ITS WAY IN) as another way to protect my beloved goat from bordwipes, etc...

If you are the helpfull kind of person and have some time left, please consider taking a look at the decklist: Zedruu, Enlightened Master , and tell me your opinions on what to put out. Always remember: Zedruu will always share her appreciation ;)

Honestly I'm also wondering about this. Do you own the tokens? Cause then it'd fit right in Zedruu the Greathearted .
