Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant

Legendary Creature — Beholder

Whenever you attack a player, tap target creature that player controls and goad it. (Until your next turn, that creature attacks each combat if able and attacks a player other than you if able.)

Whenever an opponent attacks another one of your opponents, you and the attacking player each draw a card and lose 1 life.

I'm happy that somewhere out there (R&D), they have someone trying to push the viability of newer strategies, & strategies that focus on the multiplayer aspect of this format. I think this same person/team is taking new, creative archetype failures into consideration & finding ways to improve on those failures.

SUBJECTIVE IMO Examples of this: Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant=success, can go toe-to-toe with some more solo fishbowl decks out there. Kardur, Doomscourge=success + budget + frequently keeps up with the more fishbowl strategies. Marisi, Breaker of the Coil=success + somewhat of a pioneer in his field. Kaima, the Fractured Calm=failure - too much design flaw - no ward - massive buildaround - couldn't give him an activated ability to destroy ench? or some spice Tahngarth, First Mate=failure - Creative yes, no oomph to play an impactful game against control, fishbowl, & non-combat meta

Even though I feel some of the failures are a bit tonedeaf when you see some of the other beasts being put out in more established archetypes - it always seems like someone in R&D takes note & circles around to try to address those failings. Goad keeps getting ways around haste, I feel that eventually creature gifting will receive a commander that has a built in workaround for the: "opponent sacs my gift" issue

NTakamura I didn't consider that being attacked was actually part of the goal. If that's the case keep on keeping on.

Some of the first that jumped to my mind were Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs and Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor. As Kazuul wants to be attacked and Varchild gives out lots of tokens just by existing while protecting you. Those, however, are monocolored. Still options for the 99.

Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant is pretty solid but I'd edge more towards Kardur, Doomscourge. He goads your opponents every ETB. Combine that with some of the already mentioned cards and Rite of the Raging Storm, Goblin Spymaster, and Tempt with Vengeance. Among others. You could actually drop the lifegain or with cards like Exquisite Blood and Whip of Erebos keep it going.

As a final offering Basandra, Battle Seraph allows you to force attacks like the Rakdos options but keeps attacking you open. I think the hardest part of this strategy is going to be forcing attacks. Particularly if you don't use red. Up to you of course and I think Teysa works well too.

I got Barktooth Warbeard, and I really liked what legendofa said and got Gang Up and Jeweled Lotus. That's pretty generic.

To fit Barktooth's flavour text, I might actually go with a goad plan that also wants opponent's creatures to die. Kardur, Doomscourge and Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant among all the other great goad cards would go in here, as well as an instant removal plan around Toshiro Umezawa, Syr Konrad, the Grim and Revel in Riches. As Lotus wants me to focus on warbeard, having a combat trick based voltron plan fits with Toshi. Seems convoluted, but I like it.

This looks pretty cool!

Cauldron of Souls with a sac-outlet and a way to put +1 counters on Kardur seems like a great option for more goading. Also, Vengeful Ancestor and Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant seem like great additional ways to goad some creatures. The same is true for Bloodthirsty Blade and especially Shiny Impetus.

Finally, as you're already planning to trigger Kardurs etb as often as possible, Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Fanatic of Mogis would be great alternative wincons.
