Red Chaos Commander

Commander (EDH) forum

I am making a mono red chaos deck who's goal it is to mess with the other players. Scrambleverse, Burning Cinder Fury of Crimson Chaos Fire, Grand Melee, and Confusion in the Ranks are just a few of the fun cards that will be in the deck. My only problem is that I don't know any good chaos commanders. I was thinking Fumiko the Lowblood, or Heartless Hidetsugu but I don't want anyone to be hating too hard on the deck during a free for all, and I know those two would get me targeted quickly. If anyone knows of any good red commanders that would wreck havoc in a free for all, or just of any good chaos cards, let me know. thanks

Here is every possibility:

Some that stand out as loving chaos: Norin the Wary, Neheb, the Eternal, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Squee, Goblin Nabob, Purphoros, God of the Forge.

norin is one that stands out in chaos for his ability to activate Confusion in the Ranks and anything remotely similar over and over with very little loss on your part.

I do love the suggestion of Grenzo, Havoc Raiser it is difficult to attain that level of chaos.

Also, Burning Cinder Fury of Crimson Chaos Fire isn't EDH legal unfortunately.

Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs is a great Chaos Commander honestly.

For my mono red chaos deck, I use Akroma, Angel of Fury.

While they always seem "whacky and fun" in the design stage, I would strongly recommend against actually building one. The deck and the games it plays in get old quickly as they usually just end up stalling out until people call it quits. I know a decent number of players who will flat out refuse to play in a game where somebody's main goal is to resolve a bunch of chaos cards "for the fun of it".

enpc i disagree, i have a 5 colour chaos deck which people really enjoy playing with. You just have to learn to play it right. If I drop all my chaos pieces at once turn after turn, then sure they may hate it. But (assuming no wheel effects), I keep my hand large, and when one threat is removed I drop another and change the game again. It's not a deck you can use every game, but it is a deck I love playing and other people love playing against. A good deck with some minor stax pieces can really stand out and be fun. The only people who hate it are people playing combo decks, and then I'd argue thats no fun either. Deck list for reference. Help me make the ultimate chaos EDH!
