Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder
Legendary Creature — Ogre Wizard
Whenever Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder deals combat damage to a player, as you cast spells from your hand this turn, they gain cascade. (When you cast the spell, exile cards from the top of your library until you exile a nonland card that costs less. You may cast it without paying its mana cost. Put the exiled cards on the bottom of your library in a random order.)

Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder occurrence in decks from the last year
Commander / EDH:
All decks: 0.01%
- Question about Yidris ability
- Edh rulings and cascade rules
- Would a Strionic Resonator cause Yidris to cause your spells to Cascade 3 or 4 times if he has double-strike?
- If a 4/4 creature with protection from black were to block a 5/4 black creature with trample, would the defending player take 1 trample damage?
- Morph into cascade

Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder Discussion

I'm wondering if you'd consider The First Sliver as your commander instead of Ramos. Seems to fit your "top deck good stuff at random" theme a lot more than metal dragon boi. Imagine a turn 5 First Sliver into Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder. NOW THATS A LOT OF VALUE. Many of your spells are also monocolor and sort of a lot of mana, so Ramos doesn't seem like he'd get nearly as much value as he could in a deck more focused on multicolor spells, or with cheaper spells in general.

Just attack with Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder before casting any spells and then Rashmi, Eternities Crafter will activate on a card affected by Yidris. You won't be using Rash to her fullest but they will go off together.

I thought I had to use those 3 you mentioned in this post. But if not I have got some good ones.

I think adding a tag for the Wheel archetype would be nice. I know that Forcefeed is a thing here, but Wheel isn't necessarily set as Forcefeed, especially in commanders such as Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder .

@king-saproling: I feel misguided w/ this CHAOS Commander. I actually wanted some suggestions on what you'd think is a better CHAOS CMDR; & what to suggest in there.
The best I got is either Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder , any 5-Color that's not Karona, False God , or The First Sliver . BTW, Zedruu the Greathearted might be a possible Group Hug CMDR of Mine; but there are others gambiting for this role Including One King... & Two Rulers of a Major Theros Area...
I can't decide which to choose; though I'm on the Bend for Yidris again, or even Jodah, Archmage Eternal ; both of which suits my needs, but even I'd like to find the right balance of CHAOS for the 99. That said, I'd rather have my CHAOS both Not only Just Right, but also strong enough to end the opinion that they're just casual trash.

@MagicalHacker: So, for awhile now, I've been working on a CHAOS deck Running Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder that also seems to have some degree upon Draw/Discard/Mill/Wheels, as long as it comes from a Library; be it Hand, Deck, Grave, Exile, or maybe a zone that counts as "Outside of Play" not counting a Sideboard (Please, WotC… Just do that... :/). There's just one snag. The cards actually have to benefit more to the user of this deck while everyone is suffering from such effects' Consequences. I actually think I'm deterring away from One-Sided CHAOS because of this. Decklist you're wondering? Well, it's missing 38 cards on-purpose; those count for the Anonymous Land Base. Ah what the heck, check it.

I love how you organized both your decks & your List of stuff. Since this deck has the "Glint-Eye"; no pun intended, I would like to know the Staple Function Sections that include 1-Sided effects; but also, I wonder if anything good exists outside of ; Yidris was a Grixisite himself after all.
Finally, this'll sound stupid, but I'm also working on a Mono- deck that benefits from everything it hates as well. I'd show it, but I ponder if you do want to know that later on. That said, what 1-sided stuff resides in which Staple Function Sections? Just mention the sections, & I'll pursue.
Worst case Scenario, I do a Pramikon, Sky Rampart Group Hug that punishes for the Hugs... XP
Keep up the great work, man! :D

Hi everyone thanks for coming to help me. I want to build a 4 color Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder focusing on sacrifice mechanics i tried to use EDHrec but the only sacrifice deck that it puts in for Yidris is an eldarazi tribal deck that isn't really what I'm looking to build some suggestions on where to start and decent cards would be great. Thanks again and looking forward to your suggestions
