Wild Ricochet Discussion

Step 1: Cast Worldfire.
Off-color options: Basilica Guards, Basilica Screecher, Blind Obedience, Crypt Ghast, Kingpin's Pet, Syndic of Tithes, Thrull Parasite, Tithe Drinker, Witherbloom Apprentice, Refuse / Cooperate, Insidious Will, Narset's Reversal, Twincast, Naru Meha, Master Wizard.
(This is by no means an exhaustive list, it just happens to be the best mana-cost effective cards I could find.)

I spoke to iamhikari:
Plan: Pivot towards aristocrats, lower the CMC, maybe more taxing. Though I think going more into the Monarch theme might be more fun/unique. We can try this first:
Mana fix and ramp:
Expand reach and lower CMC of your removal:
Return to Dust
+1 Chaos Warp
+1 Generous Gift ....alternatively there are some 2 mana removal cards in Strixhaven that might be fun to try out.
+1 either Path to Exile or the cheaper Dire Tactics
+1 Soul-Guide Lantern
Pivot to Aristocrats:
Still need to deal with your creatures and maybe do some more token generation or something. I'll keep thinking and get back to you.

If we are talking about red spells, there is also Wild Ricochet which gives you the best of both worlds.

I like the flavour here, pretty fitting. May I suggest Progenitor Mimic as an additional very powerful clone? Also, how about Moritte of the Frost to be able to copy non-creature permanents? Finally, Spitting Image is just busted with Kakashi. And considering the fact that Kakashi should be able to copy himself, Sakashima of a Thousand Faces and/or Helm of the Host seem great.
Finally, Wild Ricochet basically is a red counterspell with added value.

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:
Reshape the Earth
Pull from the Deep Volcanic Vision
Hazoret's Undying Fury
Decimate (since you need all legal targets, it can be awk to cascade into this one)
Amulet of Vigor
Wort, the Raidmother
Cast Through Time
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. :)

If you copy Rise of the Dark Realms with Wild Ricochet, Fork, Twincast or any other copy effects, your copy will resolve first, returning all creatures from all graveyards to the battlefield under your control. Assuming no new creatures are put into the graveyard after it resolves (such as the ones you reanimated being killed), the original Rise of the Dark Realms will do nothing.

Commander Legends / Zendikar rising update:
IN Mountain, OUT Wild Ricochet: again, never had an opportunity for ricochet to do anything, it was almost always too expensive. Keeping Reverberate for now. Mountain comes because i’ve been noticing some mana issues, which a mono color deck shouldn’t have.
IN Kazuul's Fury Flip, OUT Isolated Watchtower: may come back to this because tapped lands can be quite a pain, would probably just add a mountain though, only just realised the tower doesn’t ramp unless your opponents are way ahead
Let me know what you all think. Am i missing cool fatties? What do you think of the new Phyrexian Triniform? It seems just a little too vanilla to me, but it leaves behind 3 bodies and can be an artifact for Goblin Welder shenanigans. We’ll never get to pay for the encore though.

So if I target myself with Cerebral Vortex and I have drawn 6 cards this turn already, 8 with Cerebral Vortex, and I Wild Ricochet It to another play who has not drawn cards yet, does it hold the 8 damage from targeting me or does it change to how many cards they have drawn this turn. (Thank you for responses and your time)
