Riku's Clue-Copters

Commander / EDH*




I mean helicopters make it easier to search for clues right...? But really why did I make this deck again?



This looks super fun! Love the themes/flavor. I play in a casual pod (mostly for fun - occasionally we get feisty, but what group doesn't!) and this would fit right in.

Just one question.. What is your inspiration/reasoning behind the traitorous blood-effects sub-theme? I don't think those would work too well in my playgroup, and might replace them with something else.. in that case, do you have any recommendations?

I also love your Chaotic Ruhan deck... I wonder if coin-flip clue-copter Riku could be a thing...

KvotheKingkiller Thanks! I've yet to actually buy the deck at the moment, but I'm thinking that it's going to be the next one I get! I think coin flip/chaos Riku could honestly be a thing lol, but IMO green tends to have less to offer in that category.

To be honest, usually with subthemes it just ends up being how I feel at the time I made the deck, but my main reasoning for using traitorous blood-effects as a subtheme was that I wanted to lean away from blue counterspell/return to hand control; in my playgroup people tend to care much less about you temporarily using their resources than simply taking them away or reverting all of their progress. Another reason why I chose it was because once I put in all of the clue/thopter creation spells and was looking for other things to let Riku copy, I found that most other spells were either situational with him or were too strong (in the sense that they could annoy other players), so I decided that temporarily getting an extra creature, especially in a game where there tends to be a "public enemy" in my playgroup, was the lesser of the evils.

Another reason why I like these effects is because they make the power of the deck much more closely related to the power of my opponents' decks. This means that the deck kind of adjusts its "difficulty" based on who you are playing with, and I also have always found these kind of combat tricks to be interesting.

Thanks for the comments! I'm really glad that you like my decks!
