Boki92 I'm not a fan of including Beledros and Shadrix in the deck, they don't do a lot to push the main theme and Shadrix would actually give opponents flying blockers. I've just ordered a Scion of Draco , I'll be dropping Surrak Dragonclaw . I can't wait for Tiamat either, this upcoming sets looks like it's going to full of dragon goodies!

Nerdytimesorwhatever: Initially I was leaning in the direction of Saskia the Unyielding , but I'm really liking the idea of Surrak Dragonclaw .

An instant-speed, uncounterable Primal Rage that makes the rest of the Tribe uncounterable, all on a beefy set of legs?! Nice..

The colors are pretty far from my wheelhouse, but that's part of why I like it..

Ezuri, Claw of Progress has so many cheap value creatures, you can build an insane boardstate quickly. On the more expensive end, I play a Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder deck that's dragon tribal, but running him with a bunch of cascade/free cost spell and effects can turn a modest field into insanity rather rapidly. Doran, the Siege Tower lets you play a lot of defensive creatures that can easily turn around and wreck someone. A more general option is Surrak Dragonclaw who has the colors and support for dropping huge creatures and dealing damage.

Surrak Dragonclaw would make your eldrazi uncounterable, and gives you access to green's ramp, blue's card draw and interaction. And red.

I like how the guy above this comment just casually strolls in and tells you to put in a bunch of moxen...

That said, warriors is one of my favorite tribes and I've made a ton of decks with them! Plus Najeela is such a badass commander! These are my suggestions that you haven't included and could serve as some better synergy with your deck than your non-warriors:

  • God-Eternal Oketra make huge 4/4 zombie warrior tokens on every warrior cast.

  • Oketra the True make warrior tokens and acts as a big beater itself.
  • Oketra's Monument tons and tons of warrior tokens.
  • Rush of Battle warrior themed overrun that gains you tons of life.
  • Herald of Anafenza gets bigger and makes warrior tokens at the same time.
  • Raiders' Spoils probably the best card draw you'll see for warrior tribal.
  • Gilt-Leaf Ambush elf warrior tokens with sometimes deathtouch.
  • Hunting Triad elf warrior tokens or modal +1/+1 counters.
  • Presence of Gond give a creature a tap for elf warrior token ability.
  • Lovisa Coldeyes more warrior lord buffs!
  • Obsidian Battle-Axe haste and auto-attach to warriors equipment!
  • Regna, the Redeemer and Krav, the Unredeemed act as a sac outlet and warrior token generation combo.
  • Lord Windgrace deck filtering, color fixing, and generation of a ton of cat warrior tokens
  • Great Hall of Starnheim gets you a 4/4 angel warrior token in a pinch
  • Base Camp cheap 5 color land for warriors
  • Starnheim Unleashed make a ton of 4/4 angel warrior tokens!
  • Emeria's Call  Flip make angel warrior tokens and give your non-angel warriors indestructible or make it a land
  • Ascent of the Worthy pretty fun tricks on this.
  • Firja's Retribution make a 4/4 angel warrior token and give angels destroy and double strike.
  • Battle for Bretagard make warrior tokens, then make copies.

    I played Surrak Dragonclaw Twin EDH and had a lot of fun, I think the deck is in my lists if you want to look it up. Surrak is awesome for combat tricks and his flash allows you to leave mana open for counter spells and then cast him. Creatures being uncounterable is really useful.

    I've been getting more and more into combo recently and decided to take a try at a Temur Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker / Splinter Twin deck. This is try one with what I had lying around, and I got a few questions on how I should take the deck moving forwards.

    1. While I'm not a cEDH player, we do play fairly high powered EDH at my group, so I want the general to be a strongly suited commander for this strategy. Currently, we have Kalamax, the Stormsire as the commander. We basically control the board until we can double tutor with a card like Chord of Calling / Shared Summons and get our combo and execute it. My question here is, should I swap commanders? I won't go Thrasios/x as that is very expensive and not really what I want to do. Some other options I've thought of are go more midrange and do Surrak Dragonclaw , who can provide uncounterable to my combo pieces (mostly) as well as allow us to play other impactful creatuers we can then copy. Any other ideas?

    2. My second question relates partially to the first: "How should I upgrade?". This completely depends on what commander I end up with so if you don't answer this one thats totally fine.

    Thanks in advanced, -Arcaneful

    Here are my picks for weakest cards, without much justification except that for the most part I don't see them doing anything important with Riku, too expensive for what they do, or are too specific:

    Spore Frog
    Animist's Awakening
    Desperate Ritual
    Reshape the Earth
    Sakura-Tribe Scout
    Savage Ventmaw
    Seething Song
    Sunbird's Invocation
    Pull from the Deep Volcanic Vision
    Wild Ricochet
    Hazoret's Undying Fury
    Surrak Dragonclaw
    Swarm Intelligence
    Dual Casting
    Volcanic Torrent
    Decimate (since you need all legal targets, it can be awk to cascade into this one)
    Amulet of Vigor
    Trinket Mage
    Murkfiend Liege
    Wort, the Raidmother
    Mana Reflection
    Genesis Ultimatum
    Cast Through Time

    And I'm also recommending cutting all of your X spells that can be hit and missed with Cascade: Electrodominance
    Genesis Wave

    However, I'll echo what another commenter said in that cascade doesn't interact with Riku all that much. I mean, you can copy the permanents or spells cast off of Cascade, but you can't meaningfully copy the Cascade cards. You could choose to cut the Cascade package instead. It's up to you and what you want to play.

    So that's my first evil pass at 30 cuts. :)
