PSA- With BNG having many 'opponents choice' effects and not just in tribute, it helps to know how to evaluate such mechanics:
Whenever a mechanic gives an opponent his choice of one of multiple options, the ability is overall worth less than the least of these options, made worse by how different the options are and better by your ability to manipulate this choice. In most cases you have no meaningful way to influence your opponents choice.
I wish my 4/4s with haste and first strike that acted as Goblin Warchiefs were better and didn't die to instants and overshadowed all other 4 drops in the format. And that they had evasion too, and some way to dodge wrath effects.

I'm trying to play riku in modern frames, too. I even switched mana drain for fnm counterspell and time spiral for time reversal.
Of course it has to be BB so bribery is foil from 8th. Glad I have it seeing this new artwork.
To everyone who thinks that the new planeswalker commander will give fresh ideas to commander... they won't. Just because something is new it doesn't mean that will bring new ideas with it. Look at Teferi. In which deck can he go? Monoblue combo/control (thanks to the untap ability) and superfriends. Nothing New. A simple legendary creature with an interesting ability would still have been new while also spawning new deck ideas maybe. New card =/= new ideas, New card type as general =/= new ideas. Changing for the sake of changing when there is no need for it is stupid. When i'll see a planeswalker general spawning a deck that was impossible to made with a legendary creature, i'll change my mind. But this won't happen, because a planeswalker general just do old and already existing things with just a little cover of fresh paint.
my signature had some interesting quotes showing the true face of EDH spikes, but mods removed it. .
