Cascading Chaos, Decent into Madness

Commander / EDH Budget Four Color



I don't care about mana yet, I want to fine tune the rest of the deck before really touching upon that. Chaos decks are something I have thought about but never really understood how to make so this is my first realy attempt at making a "functional" edh chaos deck. I like cascade as a mechanic but I don't like it in normal decks so I felt like chaos would be perfect. I think I am missing a few really good chaos cards and would love feedback on the deck so far. Wish I could use the original chaos card



If you're looking for chaos, Teferi's puzzle box and Knowledge Pool are always fun! (And by fun i mean make you lose all your friends!). This seems like a really cool deck, fun to play.Kudos for figuring out a unique deck list.

Hey xander!

So, chaos decks are something I've personally never tried nor understood, so rather than give you a few card suggestions, I'll point you to a great resource:

I figure from there you can pick the cards and strategy you like most and build of that! Good luck friend!

Hey! Got some ideas for your chaos deck....first a combo with cards that are intersting alone but hilarious together, Timesifter + Stranglehold = extra turns for only you, other people get turns too just less often... some more free stuff...Omen Machine, Temporal Aperture, Unexpected Results, Master of Predicaments, Hazoret's Undying Fury, Mind's Dilation, Eye of the Storm ... fun and useful thingys like Clever Impersonator, Mirage Mirror.... Homeward Path combos with the Perplexing Chimera and probably other chaos cards in here already. Teferi's Realm is crazy, Zur's Weirding is troll status for sure plus cascade is unaffected by it, Nature's Will and Bear Umbra because they're so good with Yidris. Good luck :)

You could run Selective Memory to combo with Laboratory Maniac/Oath of Druids. You could also run Chance Encounter as a secondary win-con :D

Sweet deck. I think Yidris is a perfect chaos commander. One way to avoid getting hated out is to implement group hug. Well of Ideas, Humble Defector, Ghirapur Orrery, Rites of Flourishing, etc, can all help you make friends and surprise your group when you unleash a couple Possibility Storm chaos cards.

For chaos, don't forget Conjured Currency, Warp World, Dismiss into Dream, Shared Fate, Guild Feud, Psychic Possession, Wild Evocation. Of course, some of those are personal preference, but I would put those in over some tutors, coin-flipping, and hate-drawing cards like Sanguine Bond, Nature's Will, etc.

Hope that helps to answer your question! Essentially, group hug will establish from the early turns that you're not a typical Yidris storm/cascade/goodstuff deck, and once the chaos begins, then your opponents will hopefully have such a tough time forming a real strategy that they can't stop you.
