Jinxed Idol isn't the best choice, since it gives your opponent a way to get rid of any creatures you might want to give to them (like, say, Steel Golem). Or even just that Gilded Drake you used to steal their general-- It's probably doing you more good than them.

Another point, though: Obviously this is great for the cursed things you'd use with Donate or whatever, but let's not also forget that there are a lot of cards out there that don't really care who their controller is, including EDH staples like Arrest or Pithing Needle. Once you've cast these things, you might as well donate them the next time you have the mana to spare, to increase your lifegain and card advantage.

@Cyberium: This wouldn't work too well with the vows, though, since the "you" in "can't attack you" is the aura's controller.

Play with Puca's Mischief for giggles.

So many combos....

Oh, you're about to die in EDH? Here - take this Lich's Mirror.

Guarantee their immortality, and at the same time make sure that if they come back they'll want revenge on the person that killed them.

Ah, politics.

That rule was changed with M10 or something I think it was, the current ruling is this.

110.5a A token is both owned and controlled by the player under whose control it entered the battlefield.

If you're gonna make an EDH deck with this as your general, then you might as well throw in a Bazaar Trader

Hand over as many creatures as you can, then cast Mirrorweave on your Bronze Bombshell. Lol

@Fallout90: Your plan consists of giving them an efficient creature? That's... interesting. Sure, it sets them back a land each turn, but they get a face-smasher.

I love how all the RedWhiteBlue cards represent America
Ruhan attacks people at random
Numot destroys countries
This guy sells arms to your enemies.

Aura and permanents with global effects are perfect donate tools. Even without combo like Illusion and Steel Golem you can simply donate your aura to your opponent to get the same effect. Switching control of aura doesn't remove the benefit you get from them in most cases, and there's little harm to donate Howling Mine and its elks.

So i got a question if i arrest my opponents creature does that count as my opponent controling it or do i control it for Zedruu's first ability

Step 1)Donate an infinite reflection attached to a wormfang manta.
Step 2)Give them a assemble the legion with tons of charge counters on it.
Step 3)Win the game.

I can't tell if this is male or female and it's making me very uncomfortable.

Akroan Horse soon to become a great addition for this deck.

You guys are playing this wrong, it's clearly supposed to be used as the commander for a Minotaur tribal deck.

Dominus of Fealty
once per turn take control of a permanent an opponent controls, then use zedruu to give it to a different opponent permanently

I dont really like table talk, it undermines deck construction and internal strategy in my opinion, but im seriously thinking of making a zedruu edh deck for large multiplayer games.

edit: didnt know dominus came in the political puppets deck, nice combo anyway, u can also use effects like Insurrection and zedruu to line up the board as u see fit

a great thing to note, is consider a 3 player game. you as A, opponent B, opponent C. you know opponent C has the weakest deck, you conspire to kill B and do so by taking B's creatures and giving them to C with zedruu, your opponent hopefully wont realise, when B dies the creatures you gave to C are removed, if played right you will secretly set yourself up to win
