At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player reveals a card at random from his or her hand. If it's a land card, the player puts it onto the battlefield. Otherwise, the player casts it without paying its mana cost.

Latest Decks as Commander

legendofa I guess just decks whose main theme is causing chaos for the table lol. Shuffling permanents or spells around, cheating others' creatures or permanents out, randomly countering spells, just causing general chaos.
Searching decks and forums on here brings up quite a lot of results. I would consider my deck here: Giving Good People Bad Permanents a chaos deck. EDHREC has a 'Chaos' theme hub as well if you're interested in looking there.

Hey Forceofnature1, thanks for the positive feedback!
Yep, I've played this deck many times over the past decade. It was my first commander deck, way back in 2011, and I've continued updating it over time. Riku's definitely a target when he comes out but there are so many other sources of replication that I can often still be a threat with big board presence without him.
Hmm, I'm not super into chaos playstyles myself but if you were looking to go in that direction I'm thinking you'd want things that let you cast spells for free so you could save your mana to copy those spells or copy the creatures as they enter the battlefield. Things like:
You could also look at things that have this effort for all players, banking on your ability to create additional copies of spells, letting you pull ahead of other players in value:
Trying to think of other chaotic effects - maybe Genesis Ultimatum ? You could copy the Ultimatum itself, plus any creatures that ETB from it you could make copies of, too.
You mentioned reworking your Riku deck with Sakashima at the helm - did it become mono-blue or did you use the new Sakashima partnered with someone green/red?

Yeah I think that throwing in more ramp is still a pretty solid idea- Song of Freyalise, Incubation Druid, and maybe Explore are pretty solid options that can still have some synergy with your deck at any point in the game. I've had a decent amount of success with Gruul Charm and Wild Evocation in similar decks, if you want some non-ramp suggestions lol. I was doing some more playtests with your deck too though, and it might make more sense to just take out some creatures at this point. Just let me know if you want any help finding things to cut!

I would cut:
Creepy Doll: An okay deterrent but 5 mana is a good chunk for this effect.
Lorthos, the Tidemaker: Not the best giant sea creature for your deck. Ideally you only pay 2 mana to cast this but then you need 8 mana for its effect. 8 mana would be better spent 95% of the time suspending 4 cards.
AEtherplasm: You have better Jhoira replacement effects already in the deck. You are dependent on your opponents though for this to help you.
Stormtide Leviathan: This shuts down quite a bit of your own creatures. Unless you go strictly island walk and flying then it should be cut. Also a good swap out for your maybe board Ulamog if you own him.
Knowledge Pool: I love this card. Though, outside of Lavina decks and chaos it isn't that good. Once an opponent steals one of your Eldrazi this feels awful.
Wild Evocation: Not bad. Fits theme but you have quite a few cheating effects outside Jhoira. This one seems more expensive and can sometimes help your opponents more.

Awesome build! I'm a big Purphoros fan and I've been debating about how to find the sweet spot between dragons and artifacts with Purphoros, and I think you've done it (or are close to doing it) here.
I had the following cards that I wanted to point out to you as possibilities, and I'm curious what your thoughts are around them:
Ashnod's Altar: Combos very well with both Myr Battlesphere and Nim Deathmantle, creating infinite ETBs and mana. It also works great as a way to gain mana if you can't keep your big creatures around after sneaking them out. Lastly, you can sacrifice your opponents creatures when you combo with your steal effects, like Molten Primordial
Heirloom Blade: I need to test this more, myself, but this is great in a deck that wants more draw options and, specifically, wants to draw creatures. You can use it to find dragons or artifact creatures in most cases, but can also be used with golems, humans, and goblins.
Zirilan of the Claw: Another card in your maybe board that I think deserves more attention. This can function as another "commander" type card that can get our deck going, easing our reliance on purph-daddy a little bit. I consider this another Sneak Attack card.
Other fun ideas: I like putting a little disruption in my Purph deck, so I've added some of the following cards. I don't know if they can fit in here, but I think they help cover some of Purph's weaknesses while still being "fun" cards to play with and against.
War's Toll: Stop people from countering our Purph-daddy.
Wild Evocation: Great for us, messes with combo players.
Insurrection: Alternate win con that works well against players who like to build wide creature decks.
Pandemonium: A great way to get some additional value from our creatures while, hopefully, helping our opponents board clear one another until we get to our mid-game spike in power (hopefully we don't become the target of this card, though!).
Indomitable Creativity: I'm on the fence about this one, but it's a fun/flexible removal spell that also allows us to trade artifact tokens or mana rocks for stronger things later in the game.
I hope these were at least interesting to read! Again, I love the deck as is, but I wanted to share some other ideas as well.

Gleeock, yes, Timesifter's been great. I run it in my Jhoira of the Ghitu chaos deck (average CMC: 5.17). I end up taking about half of the extra turns, which helps with suspend hopefully without feeling too oppressive to the rest of the table.
Instead of playing all the extra turn spells and MLD you'd expect to see in Jhoira, I run Perplexing Chimera, Omen Machine, Possibility Storm, and Wild Evocation. My ultimate goal is to cast Eternal Dominion, preferably with Hive Mind in play.
