When I set out to build a Riku deck, I wanted to make something flavorful that was keeping in the spirit of this tricky wizard. I decided to keep the CMC balanced, opting for instant-speed shenanigans and small creatures that do a lot to affect the game until I can use copy effects to mirror other players' threats, deal massive damage with Purphoros, God of the Forge and token production, or combo with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Splinter Twin.
