Zedruu the Greathearted Discussion

HarrisonHarry on Zedruu's Chaos

6 days ago

I want to build a EDH group hug deck built around Zedruu the Greathearted that is not quite supposed to win. I will have group hug cards like Ghirapur Orrery and Otherworld Atlas. But I want to create chaos in the game with cards like Goblin Spymaster, Dismiss into Dream, Noble Benefactor, Forced Fruition, Keldon Firebombers, Hive Mind, Rite of the Raging Storm just to name a few, does anyone know of anymore?

Say I have a Zedruu the Greathearted and a Cliffside Lookout. I activate Cliffside Lookout's ability, and while the ability is still on the stack, I activate Zedruu's ability (targeting Cliffside Lookout.) Would my creatures get +1/+1, or would my opponents creatures get +1/+1? I would also like to know if the scenario is the same for things like Oracle of Nectars.

Remember to link all cards in your question with double brackets.

Celestial Dawn
Zedruu the Greathearted

You would not have to float any kind of mana beforehand, because of the third ability of Celestial Dawn. It lets you spend white mana as if it were mana of any color, allowing it to work as such.

As far as permanents go, Celestial Dawn only affects permanents you control, so once a permanent leaves your control it will revert to its original color, unless it is in any zone but the battlefield.

Ever thought of Zedruu the Greathearted with the same play style? There's also Tajuru Preserver or Sigarda, Host of Herons to get past Lich/ Lich's Tomb, and Kira, Great Glass-Spinner might work too. Maybe abusing Ghave, Guru of Spores's ability with Anointed Procession, Strionic Resonator, etc, but minus the red chaos. Hope this helps!

If Shu Yun isn't part of the game plan anyways you could switch to Zedruu the Greathearted just to fake out people with hopes of group hug before you start to combo.

I use Radha, Heir to Keld for Voltron, because her ability helps with casting instants like Temur Battle Rage.

Mine is not up to par yet, but the most fun looking Voltron I've seen is Zedruu the Greathearted with auras. Just place the aura on Zedruu, then give your opponent control of the aura using Zedruu's ability.

I am looking for help in finding a color combination and commander / commanders that can helm a deck that includes such a variety of cards like Palinchron, Deadeye Navigator, Restoration Angel, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Hanna, Ship's Navigator, Ward of Bones, Dark Confidant, Aetherflux Reservoir, Alhammeret's Archive etc.

I know there is a huge varient of cards here that shouldnt really be considered but I wanted to have a strong ETB creature synergy, lifegain, and some sort of aggressive win con all at the same time. I am willing to consider 4 color commanders (5 color is okay but I don't like any of them which is what deters me the most]]. I have good green which is considered as well but it would be supplemented to mana curve and draw and not anything else. 3 color commander colors is preferred as Bant, Esper, and Jeskai are all considered as well.

Another weird stipulation though not a make or break deal is I like my commanders to be female.

Commanders I have looked at heavily are Narset, Enlightened Master (though I would not want her to be ran in that OP creaturless storm extravaganza of hate she can be ran as), Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge (see Narset), Hanna, Ship's Navigator, Jori En, Ruin Diver, Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest, Zedruu the Greathearted, Merieke Ri Berit, Rubinia Soulsinger, Queen Marchesa, Marchesa, the Black Rose, Ishai and Vial Smasher, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Tymna and Kydele, or Saskia the Unyielding
