Zedruu the Greathearted Discussion

Lil_Kalki on Aminatou, the Hex Mage

I really like this decklist. I’m interested in how the curses actually interact in a capacity greater than zero in your favor though. Blinking them only probably gives them to other people, but does that really matter? And clean-cupping then doesn’t really do much for you, less so if someone wants to run Zedruu the Greathearted after the fact...

But anyway, I like how the deck appears so far, for what it’s worth. Please have a look at my build, Dare to Believe, Dare to Become. It’s a tad different, perhaps a little more streamlined to the mainstream, but I’d love to know what you think.

passascats Thank you for the suggestions! I agree. Vandalblast is an excellent addition. Languish is also a good card and I will see about adding it. Bazaar Trader is also a great suggestion and one that I had in my Zedruu the Greathearted deck before dismantling it. I should have remembered that one as that would solve one of my big problems! And Homeward Path was in the deck before I got rid of everything to rebuild the deck into its current form. Must have forgotten to add it back in :p

In regard to the Instants. They are probably the way the deck should go. But I am keeping it all to enchantments just because I like it a bit more and I think it will be a little more unique that way. I will keep them in mind though. Thank you for the suggestions and the +1.

Again any comments on my Zedruu the Greathearted and Norin the Warybrew would be much appreciated. Do it seems balanced for casual play? Or does it want to do too much stuff

If you’re playing Monks, you’re playing Jeskai (). I second Narset - fun and versatile.

Though if you want to go a completely different direction, Zedruu the Greathearted is a monk....

Yeah, brisela is one big baddie and pulling it off in commander is funny.

Let me walk you through a play by play with the Desolation Giant. So say on turn 4 I cast Zedruu the Greathearted. On turn 5 I use Stifle as I play the Desolation Giant to counter his enter the battlefield trigger. On turn 6 I enchant the Desolation Giant with the False Demise and use 3 mana with zedruu to give it to my opponent. Youre right about the kicker being a cast trigger but thats the beauty of it, because when the giant dies the next time I use it to block (or if Im lucky enough to have my Despotic Scepter), it will come back into play under my opponents control and they cant pay a kicker cost so the Desolation Giant will blow up all of their creatures while mine are fine.

Also, Faerie Artisans is extremely cheeky, god damn. Here's the line:

Step 1: You just play the artisan. I have played it a bit in the past, and it's not particularly exciting but totally ok, especially as a defensive card.

Step 2: Make sure to develop Zedruu the Greathearted

Step 3: Give an opponent control of Faerie Artisans with zedruu and play Leveler to kill them at their next draw step (note that faerie artisans's ability is not a may ability). Or in a game with multible people still alive, play Sky Swallower to take their board (including Faerie Artisans).

I admit, it's not very likely to happen, but it's actually mor consistent than Brisela, Voice of Nightmares, and potentially gamewinning if you ever pull it off.

Odd behavior in a just completed EDH deck.

Swapsies is the deck I just finished. Zedruu the Greathearted is the general. I have added Cultural Exchange as the feature card. The issue is that the color pie in the deck preview image is colorless, and when viewing the deckstats it insists that I have black and green mana. Which is not strictly speaking true, I have the standard any color package for EDH. None of my other decks do this, just curious as to what the issue is.

if you want to keep that color scheme Zedruu the Greathearted has life link and card draw. Ruhan of the Fomori is same colors 7/7 for 4 mana and then there are Numot, the Devastator, and Narset, Enlightened Master.
