This is my Diaochan, Artful Beauty multiplayer EDH deck. Diaochan is a very underhyped commander with great artwork that I play in order to promote unique gameplay within 4-man-pod-style playgroups.

When Diaochan is equipped with shroud, protection from red, or indestructible she is able to pick off targets from the board and remain safe from her own ability. This forces the enemy to play politics with each other in an aggressive way this isn't very political for you personally. ( I hate political puppets as well as group hug. I don't want to make deals with anyone or give gifts to anyone in exchange for anything. )

Note: Hexproof does not protect Diaochan from her own ability.

I've tried to make Diaochan as competitive as possible in every deck archetype thinkable...(including political puppets and even flip-the-coin!) The artificer archetype is the most reliable build I have had so far. As an added bonus, the deck becomes unreliant on the commander.

I use Diaochan equipped with her gear to stall the game long enough for me to assemble combos. Conveniently her gear is also artifact fodder for Goblin Engineer type effects.

To make this deck more competitive...Just play a Daretti, Scrap Savant deck! It operates almost the same way!

Testing: Planar Portal -> Planar Bridge

Considering Paradox Engine , Combustible Gearhulk , and Hellkite Igniter .
