I think Spelltwine doesn't work with your commander, because you are copying the cards and casting them instead of copying the spell. If that's right than Mizzix's Mastery and Arcane Bombardment also wouldn't work, sadly. Maybe they are good enough to keep anyway? Not sure. Cards with the Cipher mechanic are also so close to working but I don't think they do. This is actually kind of hard to brew around! Ugh, God-Eternal Kefnet wouldn't work either, ew.

Immolating Gyre and Volcanic Vision are really good boardwipes in a spells-y deck... as is Cyclonic Rift, which you definitely should still run. In fact, all the overload spells are pretty sweet here, since they only target things you don't control, so if you copy them opponent's can't even pay the 4 life to hit one of your things. Makes Vandalblast and friends possibly worth it.

Radiate is such a fun card that could do some real crazy things here! Shoutout to Radiant Performer as well.

Sublime Epiphany and Volcanic Offering Might not be good enough here.

I really like Narset's Reversal, Split Decision, and the demonstrate cards in this deck! Obviously Twinning Staff is fun here too.

It will be interesting to see if Lithoform Engine or Pyromancer's Goggles will be good enough here (I like Primal Amulet  Flip). Maybe more spells that copy spells are better than these chunkier repeatable ones? Things like Galvanic Iteration or Reiterate if you like the buyback better. Or Increasing Vengeance for the beefier flashback. Hell, if its politics Bonus Round could be really fun. Chef's Kiss is a newer one that I forgot about

Maybe this is the kind of deck where Thrilling Encore shines?

Is Stunning Reversal here to try and copy and save other people with?? Seems like it may not be good enough when you have access to blue for card draw/protection anyway.

I've found the expertise cycle (Baral's Expertise, Yahenni's Expertise, maybe not Kari Zev's Expertise) to be really fun with spell copying, since they in turn let you cast more spells themselves.

I wish, as I always do, that Cloven Casting wasn't soooo bad. Or like, any of the cards with Replicate. Those would be so perfect. Maybe Shattering Spree is good enough but I think it isn't. Ugh, that makes me think about how you're definitely supposed to play storm cards in this deck. Are there any storm cards that aren't miserable? Mind's Desire maybe...

Is Charmbreaker Devils good enough?

Wild Ricochet is an oldie but maybe enough of a goodie here with the copying theme?

Harmonic Prodigy since your commander is a wizard isn't a terrible idea...

Humble Defector might be too cute.

Gotta have Rakdos Charm! Honestly there might be other charms that are worth it to like Crosis's Charm, but definitely Rakdos Charm.

Cruel Ultimatum is the ultimate chunky spell and you're even in the right colors for it!

Also Chaos Warp is still good enough as universal instant speed removal and kind of fun/politics-y as well

plakjekaas on Infinite combo possibly?

You're not generating additional copies of Wild Ricochet the way you describe it. You get the original, the Wort conspire copy, and nothing else. The conspire copy can resolve targeting the original, but then you'll have the same stack as before, only the conspire copy has turned into a Ricochet copy. You can generate infinite Magecraft triggers, because you're copying infinite spells, but those infinite copies are all used to copy the copy-spell again. You'll end up with a Jaya's Immolating Inferno, the original Wild Ricochet and a copy of Ricochet that will probably target the same Inferno when you decide to break the loop.

What you need is a Twinning Staff, to generate two copies instead of one whenever you copy spells, to generate more than one Ricochet copy, so one can target the original Ricochet, while others can actually copy the Inferno more times.

GerroxJr on Infinite combo possibly?

Here's the thing, just built this deck and I think I have the combo. This is a deck that I just built and finally put it all together to play it. What I think I can do is this.

Deck: Wort, the Raid Mother Copies of Tokens

Combo: Wort, the Raidmother is on the field, I cast Jaya's Immolating Inferno, I don't conspire it. Then I cast Wild Ricochet, I conspire this. The stack looks like this...


(Copy of WR) >> Wild Ricochet

Wild Ricochet >> Jaya's Immolating Inferno


Jaya's Immolating Inferno

Then I use the copy of Wild Ricochet to change the target of the original, targeting the copy of Wild Ricochet

The copy resolves, copying Wild Ricochet, targeting the original Wild Ricochet, creating a new copy, targeting the original Wild Ricochet.

Then the second copy of Wild Ricochet resolves, targeting the original Wild Ricochet, creating a new copy, targeting the original. And so on and so forth.

Theoretically, I could then create 8+ new Copies on the stack (at one point) to change the target of Jaya's Immolating Inferno 8+ times. THEN when I have as many copies as I want, I change every other Wild Ricochet to target Jaya's Immolating Inferno to cast the spell 4+ times instead of the 8+ copies i made. It gets out half, but if I can do it an infinite amount of times, half of infinity is still infinity.

Is this true? If not, should I cast a Reiterate to make it work so that Wild Ricochet is on the stack, so I could then target it?

These might interest you: Fork, Delina, Wild Mage, Storm-Kiln Artist, Reiterate, Reverberate, Wild Ricochet, Fury Storm, Karok Wrangler (extra good with the infinite combo spells like Fork), Worn Powerstone (gets Wort out on turn 4), Coalition Relic, Component Pouch, Nostalgic Dreams, Pir's Whim, Make a Wish, Rude Awakening

berserkerazn on Queen Marchesa

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:

For starters:

-1 Beseech the Queen
-1 Deliver Unto Evil
-1 Wild Ricochet
-1 Call the Coppercoats
-1 Assemble the Legion

Mana fix and ramp:

-1 Worn Powerstone
-1 Gilded Lotus
+1 Exotic Orchard
+1 Talisman of Conviction
+1 Wayfarer's Bauble
+1 Talisman of Hierarchy ...can also +1
Talisman of Indulgence , but it's slightly pricier.

Expand reach and lower CMC of your removal:

-1 Return to Dust
-1 Terminate
-1 Comeuppance
+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

Fun monarch theme and control: +1 Court of Grace
+1 Court of Ambition
-1 Black Market
-1 Ixalan's Binding

Pivot to Aristocrats:

-1 Neheb, the Eternal
-1 Thief of Blood
-1 Tectonic Giant
+1 Cruel Celebrant
+1 Syr Konrad, the Grim
+1 Bastion of Remembrance

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.

enpc on Redirect in EDH?

Gleeock: you do however need red in your deck to play Deflecting Swat . But yes, assuming you can run it, it is generally better than most of the other redirect options.

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

seshiro_of_the_orochi on The Copy Ninja, Kakashi Hatake

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.
