Beamsplitter Mage acts as a mini Zada/Mirrorwing Dragon. Makes all of your targeted cantrips pretty good!

Also there's a few extra cantrips to consider. - Leap - Cloak of Feathers - Cerulean Wisps - Renegade Tactics - Thermal Flux

Bad cantrips that are just good for triggering Zada/Magecraft/Mirrorwing - Twisted Image - Chilling Trap - Fleeting Distraction - Stream of Unconsciousness

KongMing on Orvar decks you had to choose the clones

Some more ideas:

Ashiok's Erasure , Baral's Expertise , Naban, Dean of Iteration , Narset's Reversal (the original spell doesn't need to resolve to trigger Orvar, just get cast), Unsubstantiate , and Isochron Scepter (since you actually cast the copy).

Also, a quick note on Venser, Shaper Savant . As noted before with Narset's Reversal, the spell you cast that targets one of your creatures only needs to be cast, not resolve. So, for example, if you cast Cerulean Wisps on Venser, a copy of Venser would enter the battlefield, the copy would disappear due to state-based effects, and then the copy's trigger would sit on the stack, allowing you to target Cerulean Wisps and return it to your hand before it resolves. This lets you repeatedly cast the same spell, although it never resolves, as long as you can continue paying for it. Of course, that can be a good thing, and there's also plenty of ways to pay for it with this commander.

tsewall on Orvar CEDH

Ok, so as a beforehand this may be a longer post because I'm debating turning my casual Orvar list into a cEDH list myself. So it'll be a bit of out loud brainstorming :P Hope it's helpful and not TLDR...

Lands: Tolaria West as an additional tutor for Mystic Sanctuary or Nykthos (or in a pinch a mana rock or pact of negation on a combo turn)

Swarmyard can provide some incidental protection for Orvar

Things I'm considering that aren't on your list Creatures:

Spellstutter Sprite With Orvar out it hits any two drop. being able to gradually increase it's effectiveness with one mana cantrips seems good, especially when you are also playing cloud of fairies... which leads me into

Glen Elendra Archmage is a little high on the CMC side, but we're already running lots of 4 drops and a six drop as a potential win con. So I think at first glance the downside is negligible. Plus it plays into the inadvertent fairy theme...

Artisan of Forms is literally the best creature on the field. Both hers and Orvar's ability trigger's on cast. So you just stack her trigger first then copy whatever she becomes and get that as the token. Instant speed Dockside Extortionist ?

Vedalken AEthermage Literally only running for wizard cycling. Most of our outlets are wizards. In your current list you have 8. all worth tutoring for IMO. I'm currently running like 9-10 so it's pretty impactful

Venser, Shaper Savant Acts like spellstutter sprite, but hit's anything. And you can just let the copy go away upon resolution of the legend rule.

Spells: For sake of brevity I'll just list the cards you don't have on your list that I'm considering and why I'm considering them...

Glamerdye can target lands (which is probably one of Orvar's strongest abilities) and it has retrace, so it's recurable, and instant speed. all plusses.

Dizzy Spell tutor or copy trigger. essentially a modal spell. very good.

Cerulean Wisps cantrips and untaps a creature, potentially very useful depending on cedh meta. I have Kraum and Pako in mine so having a blocker is often needed. Also can help slow annoying tymna.

Rescue is interesting, still not sold on it. But it does give you a copy of a creature, and allows you to save/replay an etb critter. Orvar is able to mitigate losing creatures by making copies of them usually, but he can't save himself and copying into a board wipe does nothing.

Blink of an Eye target's permanents, can draw you a card and there is another card with a different name that does the same thing

Flood of Recollection Pet card of mine, single use but I like it on turns I want to go off with High Tide and don't want to exile it with JVP or Snapcaster. works well with Narset's reversal too...which I'm not running lol.

Run Away Together considering this as a way to deal with a threat and copy one of my creatures.

Cards I love:

Energy Tap this is great. didn't even consider it. solid inclusion.

Time Spiral and transmute artifact... mentioning these just because I'm jealous...

Treachery Ditto ^

Sakashima of a Thousand Faces love the silly synergy with Nykthos. Ridiculous.

Pyre of Heroes This is silly, didn't even see this spoiled. Birthing pod in colorless? are they crazy!

Cards I'm "meh" on:

Memory Crystal You're only running (I think) two buyback spells. So most of the time it's a dead card. I see Drift of Phantasms, but id rather be tutoring for the buyback card or something more impactful. Also copying sapphire medallion helps buyback and other non buyback spells.

Drift of Phantasms very linear tutor in cedh imo. I get that it hits hullbreacher, spellseeker, etc. I think I would personally rather slot additional control. But if you love the card run the card.

Inga Rune-Eyes Not impactful enough for me in a 4 drop slot. scrying one statistically is akin to drawing half a card, so three is one and a half?. You could run the 3 drop fairy that draws you a card for more fairy synergy lol... sorry, maybe I have a fairy problem. Also, I'm not sure how often you'll get her second line to happen. I don't see how you trigger that without investing multiple cards to copy her? unless I'm missing something? does it happen often for you?

Grim Monolith without an infinite mana outlet I don't think it does enough. Also I didn't Sol Ring in your list easy swap?

Extraplanar Lens In general I think this is a bad card. ramp it out early and someone smashes it, your down a land and probably a turn. Plus you have to imprint a land every time you make a copy of it. so the downside for their removal becomes even greater in my estimation. Orvar already ramps well enough to not need this card. but high risk high reward I guess.

I'm also soft on the tribute/trinket mage. They're good for the thing they grab but they're not ultimately what I want to be copying. you could run Shipwreck Dowser and Salvager of Secrets instead and lean into the Archaeomancer synergies, but then our cost is getting higher, and obviously you could copy what they tutor for... back to the balance of creature targets vs permanent targeting spells...

I think that's it... If I missed why you are running something let me know, like I said I'm brainstorming myself so the discourse will be super helpful for me, hope this was helpful for you! Also I should go back and read comments... yeah I'm that guy...

Thanks for posting the list!

Cloudius bringing you another original uncanny homebrewed deck of mine!


Taking the World by Storm

Commander / EDH Cloudius

SCORE: 8 | 9 COMMENTS | 296 VIEWS


The deck packs some chaos, a dose of potency and tons of fun by marrying the partner commanders - Krark, the Thumbless and Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix !

Krark and Kydele is not a popular pairing with only 12 other decks on TappedOut and 20 decks on EDHREC as at 12/2/2021 but I absolutely love the chemistry between them!

Game Plan

Here's the deck's main game plan:

1) Summon Krark, the Thumbless and Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix . Their relatively low CMC makes it easier and being the underdogs make them less susceptible to removals/counterspells. For the value engine to kickstart, we only need Kydele on board but Krark just makes it more chaotic and fun!

2) Cast Draw/Wheel spells like Brainstorm , Windfall and Memory Jar to build up the number of cards drawn in a turn.

3) Tap Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix for Loads of Generic Mana . The deck offers many ways to Convert to colored mana via Cascading Cataracts , Chromatic Orrery , Prismite , etc.

4) Continue drawing and wheeling using the additional mana from #3.

5) Untap Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix using cheap Untap spells like Cerulean Wisps , Emerald Charm and Tidal Bore .

6) Copy the draw/wheel/untap spells using Krark, the Thumbless , Geistblast , Twincast , etc for extra value

7) Go to #2 and Repeat till we assemble our combos and wincons.

Looking for...

Looking for Upvotes +1, card suggestions and feedback for the deck! Keep the creative juices flowing and I'm looking forward to all the constructive suggestions and +1s!

You're definitely missing out on Cerulean Wisps. It's just better than twitch or vault skyward
