TriusMalarky on Kykar's Tokens & Cantrips

1 week ago

I really like Teferi's Ageless Insight and Whirlwind of Thought here -- they'll draw you an absolute boatload of cards.

It also looks like you're sort of trying to storm off maybe? Or are you aiming for a token horde?

I'd recommend a primary Storm plan with a secondary token flood with cards like Young Pyromancer. Empty the Warrens is great regardless of if you want to take the storm path, but Grapeshot and Brain Freeze, as well as Haze of Rage, are pretty solid win conditions.

Use to look for 1-mana red spells that draw a card. With those and Kykar, you can chain together a crapton of spells in a single turn.

Also, Battlefield Forge, Shivan Reef, Cascade Bluffs, Mystic Gate, Rugged Prairie, Skycloud Expanse, Sulfur Falls, Glacial Fortress, Clifftop Retreat should fix those 9 taplands you've got. They are all about $3 or less on TCGPlayer last I checked, so they shouldn't be too expensive.

Hey, on a budget well done upgrading the precon. Nice upgrades of Ral with Reverberate/Vengeance for the combo, Settlement/Encampment/Drum, Hippocamp, Brainstorm, Dig, Within, Shift, Passage.

Some budget cards to consider adding:

  • Narset's Reversal: can be repeatable for two mana to copy any instant/sorcery that's cast. The copy that Kalamax makes can target and bounce the original Reversal back to your hand to cast again on the next turn and Kalamax can make a copy of one instant on each player's turn.
  • Expansion / Explosion: another Fork to combo with Ral or a mass draw/damage spell with lots of mana.
  • Gravitic Punch: with Kalamax and a Fork this can kill three opponents and cast it again from your graveyard.
  • Cultivator's Caravan: three drop rainbow mana rock that can also be a repeatable source of tap for Kalamax (crew 3 is another instant way to tap Kalamax).
  • Return of the Wildspeaker: it can draw a lot of cards with high power Kalamax and/or give Kalamax/Drakes/Birds/Elementals +3/+3 or even +6/+6 to potentially kill one/more opponents.
  • Roiling Regrowth: like Harrow, but the lands ETB tapped.
  • Cascade Bluffs: Double Masters version is less than $4.
  • Shivan Reef: Commander 2020 version is $1.
  • Rootbound Crag
  • Sulfur Falls

If you like any of these suggestions I offer more advice about what cards to cut. Good luck with deck.

Hey there! Maybe consider these lands.

Fast lands are relatively cheap, and still good in the early game. Darkslick Shores, Blackcleave Cliffs, and Spirebluff Canal. I would also recommend adding the rest of the filter lands, (Cascade Bluffs and Sunken Ruins) as well as the other fetch lands (if you have the budget) and pain lands. (Polluted Delta/Scalding Tarn and Sulfurous Springs/Underground River). You also might like some of the following, though some are a bit expensive.

Hey, some base numbers to consider when starting out a three color casual Temur deck:

Of course these numbers can be increased or decreased as you build the deck, but this is a good starting point with some cards to consider adding.


Any creatures or instant/sorceries you play think of them has having two additional mana in their mana costs that way you can get value from Riku. This means more creatures and instant/sorceries that are lower mana cost such as Coiling Oracle and Growth Spiral. Oracle and Spiral for two mana can help to get to five or more mana to cast Riku.

Legendary creatures are not the best with Riku because of the legendary rule. Only allowing you to have one card that's the same name in your control meaning you don't really want to copy a legendary creature with Riku. The token copy still triggers any ETB abilities, but then you remove the token copy and keep the original legendary creature.

Some budget win conditions with Riku

  • Biovisionary + one copy of Biovisionary + Twinflame
    At beginning of your end step resolve the Biovisionary win the game trigger before the Twinflame exile tokens trigger which wins the game before the tokens are exiled. Biovisionary is also good with clones such as Phyrexian Metamorph. With Riku in your control get Biovisionary onto the battlefield, make a copy of it, clone it with Metamorph and make token copy of Metamorph gives you four Biovisionarys. Twinflame also combos with Dualcaster Mage for infinite Dualcasters who can attack with haste.

  • Ral, Storm Conduit + Fork Expansion / Explosion/Reverberate/Twincast
    With Ral in your control cast a Fork, copy it with Riku. Let the copy resolve and then copy the original Fork still on the stack. Resolving the Fork copy then copying the original Fork makes a copy instant loop which does infinite damage to your opponents one at a time with Ral. These Forks are good with Riku outside the combo because for four mana you can copy an opponents spell twice. Forks are nice in multiplayer Commander where you have many opponents who are casting instant/sorceries you could copy.


Some of other cards $5 or less each that are good with Riku

Hey, good version/first attempt of Kalamax and nice deck description.

With a $400 budget I think you can afford to cut some basic lands for more dual lands that ETB untapped: Stomping Ground, Cascade Bluffs, Shivan Reef, Karplusan Forest, Flooded Grove, Fire-Lit Thicket. Bluffs is very helpful since it can make or , important combinations to cast spells for Kalamax. Holdout Settlement and Survivors' Encampment are unique lands with Kalamax because like Springleaf Drum they can tap Kalamax to make mana. Best of all either one can be tutored for with Crop Rotation and are busted interaction with Kalamax and Seedborn Muse.

You've left out one of the better combos with Kalamax: Ral, Storm Conduit + Kalamax + any instant Fork. You've added a Doublecast step to the combo which you don't need to do. By copying an instant Fork with Kalamax then you make an infinite instant copy loop with the Fork which kills your opponents one at a time with damage from Ral.

Can't use Narset's Reversal as the Fork because of the "return to owner's hand" clause. Reversal can be a repeatable Fork with Kalamax which can be ridiculous value, but it's not a Fork that can make an instant copy loop. Reverberate is another instant Fork and it could replace Doublecast.

Melek, Izzet Paragon and Swarm Intelligence are not needed for six and seven mana. Could cut them for Arcane Signet and Wavebreak Hippocamp. Natural Connection is too slow ramp with not enough payoff with Kalamax. It could be cut for Nature's Lore which is two drop ramp that can get Triome, Breeding or Stomping and the Shock land can ETB untapped.

Good luck with your deck.

Howdy there! Maybe consider some of these!

Duals

Multi/Colorless

In the end, I would definitely consider all of these lands as they are very helpful and can help your journey go much much MUCH smoother, especially in commander! If this helps, be sure to check out some of my decks, (Double Trouble EDH) among others! Upvote them if you like them and be sure to give me suggestions if you have any, I would appreciate it. Anyways though, hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day! Happy tapping!
