RECENT UPDATES: Pillar of Origins out Extraplanar Lens in (as well as snow lands), Reito Lantern sadly out cause i like this one but it was never as handy as I wanted it to be so Empowered Autogenerator is in adding to the ramp package. Ive also added Mirage Mirror and Grip of Chaos replacing Minion Reflector and somthing else i cant remember tho, Grip of Chaos i havnt played yet but its mainly there for fun till i find somthing better.

Ok so after proxying 4-5 decks i liked and was thinking about buying i landed the zirilan deck i built, so thank you for the inspiration, a couple cards ive been playing around with for fun i thought you would enjoy for their 'wot' flavor not nessecarily for competetivenes, Chaos Moon total Rand flavored card with the cycle of power and weekness, and messes with your opponents heads. Grip of Chaos i havnt actually got this out in a game but you gotta love the whole dragon reborn messing with the pattern flavor, and lastly Blade of Selves this is my pick for a best Callendor due to art and the whole fight a table single handed thing going on, but i side board it when playing 1v1. Good luck and thanks for the inspiration TAISHAR MALKIR! TAISHAR MANATHEREN! TAISHAR ZIRILAN!

The two big things I notice here are: you don't have a lot of expensive cards to cheat out with Omniscience (unless I'm missing a combo somewhere), and Grip of Chaos can get really annoying in a four player game with lots of stuff on the board. (I also don't know if Arcane Flight does enough to really be impactful.)

Based on the style of deck this seems to be, I'm a big fan of tossing cards from the advocate cycle in. In particular: Nullmage Advocate and Spurnmage Advocate give you a way to blow problems up while also returning cards (of your choice) to another player's hand. Pulsemage Advocate lets you bring a creature back. It's a great way to 'gift' someone cards that are useful to you (like a counterspell when someone else is about to wipe the board).

Oh, and given the Spike Weaver , picking up a Spore Frog or Kami of False Hope might be fun.

Love the concept. Love seeing Assault Suit in decks. Love the addition of Play of the Game .

My old roommate used to run a obnoxious deck containing Eye of the Storm , Grip of Chaos , Hive Mind . Something like that could be fun to disrupt your opponents. Perhaps Knowledge Pool could serve a similar function, along with the aforementioned Omen Machine .

Seeing as you're already the wacky mono red deck and are trying to cast big spells Id suggest Mana Flare . It might make people less likely to target you if they're getting a sick mana buff and you need the mana to cast big spells. Some of my personal favorite chaos cards (if you don't mind slowing the game down a little) are Whims of the Fates , Grip of Chaos and Possibility Storm . Love the idea and I swear to god I'll +1 any deck with Tibalt as the commander.

Hi! Say I control Grip of Chaos , Avatar of Woe and Mirran Crusader . I then activate the Avatar targetting itself, triggering Grip of Chaos, and respond to that with Cytoshape to turn Avatar into a Mirran Crusader (Grip could change Cytoshape's target but let's assume it doesn't). Now what happens to the Avatar activation? Is that still considered black because it was originally created by a black source, and can therefore target neither of the pro black Mirran Crusaders?
