favourite wildcards... probably stuff like Scrambleverse , Dovescape , Warp World , Confusion in the Ranks . oh man theres so much fun in ruining politics. I've been playing five color chaos for a while (The Debauchery Tea Party) and if you dont overdo it your playgroup will just love it. Just dont play it too often and allow them to have a normal turn every now and then. otherwise it will end in bored ppl watching you handling 250 triggers each turn

Hall of Heliod's Generosity seems awesome, and I'd probably throw it in a ton of my decks once it comes out, i love enchantments.

When it comes to fetches and duals, yeah probably so. My landbase is weird because it was built on a budget and with what I currently already had, as well as enough forests to tutor up with my ramp cards.

As for the pillowforting cards, I'd consider the nature of the deck. The general idea of this deck is to shuffle everyone's permanents around, which would end up backfiring if you play a bunch of beneficial cards to protect yourself, and they end up being swapped with 0/1 goats at some point in the game. That's why a majority of the enchantments are kinda "global" effects that don't matter who owns it. Especially since a win condition is just having your opponents kill each other, or stealing your opponents big creatures, you really don't want the person across from you having your Ghostly Prison , or even a Silent Arbiter on the field at all probably.

A majority of the decks I build in edh are pillowfort themed, so I understand the want for putting them in. I don't think they would work best in my exact list, but a similar list where random swapping effects like Confusion in the Ranks are replaced with pillowforting cards would work nicely.

If you put up a list on tappedout and want some additional input, I could definitely help you there. Especially if you end up going more toward a pillowfort route, I could give a bunch of recommendations.

Teleportation as trading, so it is disappearing and reappearing elsewhere on the battlefield. Idk if it exactly counts. I was honestly thinking more about Aminatou, the Fateshifter 's ultimate and Confusion in the Ranks , but maybe if there was a delay or exile to do it, it'd feel more teleportation like.

Either new type of teleport, or wildcard!

Norin the Wary , Confusion in the Ranks , Genesis Chamber can make a chaotic board state where you and your opponents are exchanging control of permanents.

Teferi's Puzzle Box is a frustrating card to play against. Combos with Chains of Mephistopheles , another chaotic card, to hand lock all players with zero cards in hand. Necropotence gets you around this lock because you skip your draw step and don't actually draw cards with Necro. Paying life to exile and then put cards into your hand is not drawing them.

Love the concept, you may consider Living Death for a board wipe because of the confusion of so many potential etbs can cause; also Perplexing Chimera is amusing for the sheer amount of annoyance it can cause by trading control of spells and you can further mess with people with things like Grip of Chaos , Death Match and Confusion in the Ranks . I would love to read some posts of how this deck does in games.

Word of Seizing gives you a turn to attack for free as you can gain control of their Ghostly Prison for the turn.

Confusion in the Ranks can effectively make your opponent lose control of Ghostly Prison for the duration of the game, and yes, Confusion in the Ranks does trigger off itself entering the battlefield so you can exchange it right away.

If you remove Terminate and Rakdos Signet for Demonic Dread there will be no spells in your deck with CMC 2 or less. That means if you board in the Dread and a card like Destructive Revelry , Back to Nature , or Abrupt Decay then your Demonic Dread will always cast whatever 2-cost spell is in your deck without needing to pay it's mana costs. (You can always run Dismember instead of Terminate if you want a cheap removal spot or you can just board out Terminate for the Demonic Dread combo whenever you need enchantment hate more.)

Rampaging Ferocidon would probably make for an amazing sideboard-tech against soul-sisters without needing to mess with the Ghostly Prison .

When it comes to Black-Red you really have to get wacky if you want to interact with enchantments. It may be better to run discard effects like Inquisition of Kozilek or meta-specific sideboard-hate like the Ferocidon though.

a friend of mine did a zedruu full focused on permanents, but some things in my opinion is good for zedruu are Confusion in the Ranks , Intruder Alarm , Hive Mind , Enduring Ideal , and Grip of Chaos reasons: Confusion in the Ranks is a free exchange and help gain more life and draw Grip of Chaos you still can exchange whenever you want and your "friends" need choo at randon because of Confusion in the Ranks Intruder Alarm a control to force people put creatures on board, and at same time give blockers for other people avoiding some attacks Hive Mind can help avoid counterspells and similars, and that combo with Enduring Ideal where help you to find new things to troll you opponents and no one else cast spells
