Kraum, Ludevic's Opus Discussion
1 month ago
I've built a couple of odd decks, my personal favorite is a naya superfriends deck, helmed by Gahiji, Honored One. Its not too out there, but the entire deck is built around Primal Surge, so there are no instants or sorceries at all.
Personally, I'd also think about a deckbuilding restriction, something that really makes you think about how you have to build the deck. Best example, I've got a wheel deck built around 2 partner commanders and a companion Tymna the Weaver/Kraum, Ludevic's Opus/Obosh, the Preypiercer All odd CMC in 4 colors with a wheel/combo based wincon.
For a weird recommendation/challenge: Ich-Tekik, Salvage Splicer/Sakashima of a Thousand Faces/Keruga, the Macrosage creatureless summoner tribal. All your spells and support makes creature tokens, but beyond the commanders there are no creatures in the deck.

Thanks for your comment! Having the extra red is a BIG help indeed. It gives u acces to such strong cards as dockside and treasure nabber and some good removal spells!
I can strongly recommend it! Kraum, Ludevic's Opus is a solid choise (for me at least) to take as commander!
You can also pair him with Silas Renn, Seeker Adept for a strong combo but i went with this choice because nobody plays it ^^

These aren't the only possible options, but here are a couple that I might use for zombies:

Of course, but with 1134 legal legendary creatures and 13 planeswalkers that can be your commander in the format, it can be intimidating to start looking from scratch for what you'll find fun. The budget request in the OP narrows it down a slight bit, but still. Learning how other people choose their way to have fun and why, can at least point in a right direction to be inspired.
It's a pretty open-ended request, and I'm having fun learning how others have fun. I'm not much of a budget player, I have a habit of overinvesting in an idea I'm hyped for. Which doesn't mean my decks are the most powerful, I don't get that hyped for cEDH, although I dabbled in that a bit. But usually, I'm making expensive versions of janky archetypes. Mono W +1/+1 counters, with a Cleansing subtheme; mono G storm; Rakdos Magecraft Aristocrats; Temur landfall without ramp spells, just additional lands from hand; they're just ideas that get stuck in my head until I brewed a decently functional deck around them.(I'm a big mtgGoldfish Against The Odds fan)
I especially love hilarious unexpected plays; like yesterday, in a 1v1 cEDH game, I played Naru Meha, Master Wizard against a Tymna the Weaver / Kraum, Ludevic's Opus Thoracle Consultation deck, I was able to Narset's Reversal the first attempt at Ad Nauseam , and when the next turn my opponent tried to Silence me before going again, I had a Twincast ready. We both had a great laugh about that one.

If you like things being uncounterable, Kodama of the East Tree is always an option. The mana advantage on him is insane. Partners really well with Kraum, Ludevic's Opus for card advantage alongside the mana advantage. Definitely more of a midrange kind of style.

Never seen this wincon before! Also never seen the chaos warp + radiate before, that looks fun!!
Wondering why not run Kraum, Ludevic's Opus in the piper's spot? As he can provide a flying blocker and sometimes card draw.

Update: Xyris, the Writhing Storm is now the Commander. Dropped Kraum, Ludevic's Opus and moved Kodama of the East Tree to the 99. Also dropped Regrowth and put in Cryptolith Rite . Still looking for room for Nyxbloom Ancient and Mina and Denn, Wildborn .

As for 016...
Jeska, Thrice Reborn + Esior, Wardwing Familiar / Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker because of the whole Jian mythical bird story. Some sort of flying tribal (the Franxx can fly... I think... at least 002's can) or Vehicle Tribal.
If you did go with Tana, the Bloodsower you could use Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist to go more of a dinosaur tribal route for those Naya colors and pack it with Gishath, Sun's Avatar and Zacama, Primal Calamity for flavor fun.
