I have a Zedruu the Greathearted deck that has a similar strategy. What I've found is in general, it depends on the gift; by focusing on effects that actively move you towards victory ( Crown of Doom ), instead of dragging the game out ( Static Orb ), you're much less likely to draw hate than the Omnath on the other side of the table.

Also, a lesson from personal experience: if you Aggressive Mining someone once, they will make it a mission to kill your commander on sight every single game afterwards.

He can. You can activate an activated ability any time you have priority as long it it doesn't have a timing restriction like Birthing Pod or Crown of Doom do.

It is important to note in this specific instance that although Spellskite has a blue color identity because of the Phyrexian mana symbol in its rules text, it is not blue because there is no colored mana in its casting cost or a color indicator. Therefore; the ability will not do anything since it is not a valid target for Ugin's -3.

Has there been any notable new cards ever since war of the spark? I just found out this gem of a commender deck (and read MegaMatt13'sprimer as well), gosh, I'll never look at commander in quite the same way. I did want to make some political-ish sort of deck with sphinxes and riddles and pillowforts / redirection stuff, felt like a nice theme, sphinxes and riddles (aka, politics and decision making), but its nowhere near as good as an archetype as what I'm seeing in yours and the other one's deck, I'm sold.

What do you think about

1-Crown of Doom how is it as a card to make enemies waste time / mana and to help redirect attackers elsewhere? too unreliable? it seems very fun and in the theme, so I assume the issue is reliability?

2-Coercive Portal too expenssive for draw even if it works over many turns? / unreliable when the board state seems too good for opponenets? or since it kills creatures, it doesnt redirect them to enemies?

3-Azor's Gateway  Flip filtering into potential mana ramp for x cost spells?

4-Lithoform Engine it seem like it does a lot of nice things for reasonable cost. anything it could potentially replace?

5-Act of Authority as an enchantment and artifact removal? doesn't look like your list has things that would be high priority target, so, is it because of the speed and / or that it destroy stuff and might target you as well, as unlikely as it is?

6-Isolated Watchtower and Detection Tower/Arcane Lighthouse as utility lands?

I assume all of these are not there because they aren't as efficient as the alternatives currently in the deck, just wondering if they have ever been discussed before.

Hi! This list is pretty cool! I have seen other Zedruu lists before, but this one has some cool inclusions such as Jinxed Choker or Legerdemain, I hadn't seen those cards before until just now

One thing I want to say though is that I love the title and description! They are hilarious! hahaha

One card I see time on time in my LGS is Crown of Doom. It's not the biggest blowout in some matchups, but if you're in some Aggro/Tokens metagame this card can be pretty powerful!

I like your deck and plan to make one that's similar. Do you plan to update it with the Impetus set of cards like Shiny Impetus? I'm considering going with a set of unblockable cards like Aqueous Form or Spirit Mantle that grant both unblocks let and protection from creatures so they are great blockers as well. My current setup has a large number of pillow fort cards like Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker, Windborn Muse, No Mercy, Crawlspace, and others that you still have in your deck. Have you found it better to go with just the ones you show as the rest are overkill? I also am running a suite of cards to promote my opponent attacking someone else like Crown of Doom, Gahiji, Honored One, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Marisi, Breaker of the Coil, and Duelist's Heritage. It sounds like you have playtested several versions and I'm just starting out. I appreciate all advice you have.
