A lot of time went into this wacky GOAT deck, so I really appreciate everybody who clicks that little green button: Upvote

You can cast Zedruu for , which is relatively cheap by Commander standards. This allows for a few recasts throughout the game. Her color combination is quite stellar. Blue means you can use the tremendous power of countermagic and trickery, which should never be estimated. Playing White means having board wipe and some fun creatures, like Serene Master. Red provides the aggro and burn to decimate an opponent. Zedruu the Greathearted has a high enough toughness to survive cards like Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Massacre Wurn:. But, don't expect to be winning the game by have Zedruu dealing 21 damage, as that's not going to happen. And by the way, does anybody really think this peaceful monk is actually a minotaur? Because he's not. He's a GOAT.
This Zedruu deck is an attempt to get as much action onto the battlefield as you can. Zedruu's path to victory starts with some inconsequential gifts to your opponent, like a Howling Mine or a used up Sphere of the Suns. Passing on a Steel Golem can prove to be devastating. After you get that constant flow of extra cards and life with Zedruu, you start to make more reasonable donations- creature tokens from cards like Rite of the Raging Storm or maybe Hunted Dragon. If a 'Hunted' Creature gets imprinted on Soul Foundry, you can fill my opponents side with weenies really fast. Finally, you instigate carnage with either Bident of Thassa, Fumiko the Lowblood, or Disrupt Decorum. Contested War Zone, Crown of Doom, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, or even a timely flashed-in Dictate of the Twin Gods guarantees some serious damage! You can use Psychosis Crawler or The Locust God as alternative win conditions because both of them can hold their own. Allowing the opponent to draw extra cards and giving them creatures is never a safe move, so always make sure those resources are never being used against you. To do this, have a lot of effective deterrents handy. Cards like Serene Master provides an infallible defense from turn 2 onwards! Jareth, Leonine Titan makes a wise opponent think twice before sending his/her big hitter at you, so make sure you get it out whenever you can to send a warning to your opponent.
I touched on this a little in the previous panel, but now I'll fully elaborate now. Illusions of Grandeur is just so perfect because you gain the 20 life, pass it on to your opponent, force them to burn mana, then make them lose 20 life. Delaying Shield serves a similar purpose: Use the good ability, then pass it on. Cards like Darksteel Mutation and Grasp of Fate take out nasty creatures without killing them, and since it doesn't matter who controls those enchantments, they can be donated afterward to provide card advantage. If you'd prefer to use them to do your own bidding, use Dominus of Fealty or Gilded Drake do gain control of them, even if it's just for your turn.The instant speed spells, such as AEtherize or Selfless Squire help fight ambushes and a big voodoo spell like Worldpurge has the potential to reset the whole board if needed, and it does so in a non-lethal fashion. Humble Defector fixes any card draw problems your allies might have, and Oath of Lieges helps all other players to keep up with the most aggressively ramping player. Spectral Searchlight is in there to help out with mana of any color. It can be used as leverage during negotiations when playing multiplayer. Rainbow Vale should be used for instants and abilities at the end of the opponent's turn for minimal consequences. Mistveil Plains can stop you from decking out, and Reliquary Tower allows you to fully harness Zedruu the Greathearted's draw ability. Hoofprints of the Stag allows you to swarm the board with flying 4/4 GOATS, because Zedruu is a GOAT! I mean, look at him!
Hope you enjoyed, leave a comment also think Zedruu is a GOAT, because she is.
