A small tweak:

Nullstone Gargoyle helps close out the game!

CPTNSTEF Sorry that I'm leaving a sort of string of comments, I'm comparing a decklist I made with Ugin and All is dust and am going by card type. Anyways, I think your creatures are lacking in a little power, you have a good middle game and a good way to get there, but I think this deck shiness in the late game. I would urge you to run a coule of more powerful creatures than Bane of Bala Ged or warden of geometries. I think Oblivion Sower would be a more powerful and beneficial include over Bane and I think that honestly, you might want to try Artisan of Kozilek over the Void Winnower. These cards let you progress towards an endgame that is overall more powerful and focused, and if you find any way of replaying these cards, they become even more invaluable.

You should probably upgrade those cluestones for Gruul Signet , Izzet Signet , and Simic Signet . They cost less each and give you better mana. I would also suggest running a few Eldrazi because you can essentially cast them for free once Animar is big enough. Artisan of Kozilek , Bane of Bala Ged , and Breaker of Armies are low budget options and are pretty effective beaters that do a good job clearing a board if you need it. Altogether you might look at like $3 worth of upgrades that would help you ramp better and intimidate an opponent. Otherwise you have a cool deck. I'd love to play against this

A massive update this time. One that I'm very excited about. Here are the changes:

Overall, the deck is faster and more consistent. Here's a summary of changes by card category:

  • direct damage is now at lower cmc
  • -1 Ramp
  • +1 protection/haste
  • +2 tutor
  • +5 draw
  • +1 anti-control
  • -4 Creature removal
  • -2 graveyard hate
  • -1 discard
  • -1 extra attack
  • -1 lifegain/recursion
  • +1 removal

So the changes overall are lower cmc, more draw and tutor, less creature removal and less utility (graveyard hate, extra attacks, etc.) Overall, the early turn plays to get direct damage and get Rakdos out are far more prevalent. The deck is more aggressive and more focused now, and plays much smoother.

And yes, this is the only deck I have where I've taken out Sol Ring . It's simply better to have only colored mana in order to cast Rakdos as consistently as possible!

no Grave Pact ;-;

and if you want some more budget stuff... Smothering Abomination is a really underrated card imo.

Plaguemaw Beast might also be a good choice since it will basically double meren counters (then again not many of your creatures are tremendously high cmc)

might also look into some of the eldrazis that are cheap but strong as hell like Bane of Bala Ged , Pathrazer of Ulamog Decimator of the Provinces Artisan of Kozilek . and then of course if you get the money would also go for the actual eldrazi titans themselves.

you could use Endless One as a real jank way to up experience but ill let you be the judge on that one

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. I haven't seen very many decks with this Commander.

Consider Fauna Shaman and Anger ? Fauna can be a repeatable creature tutor and is good to be able to discard Brawn or Anger and tutor for Mycoloth or Tendershoot, etc. I think creature ramp is better here than artifact ramp because of devour. Mana dorks are good targets to devour because before they can first be ramp. Creatures who first land ramp, getting you a land and then can be devoured is better ramp with devour.

Creature ramp to consider:

One drop mana dorks are huge reason to want to play green since other colors don't have as much of this luxury of ramp. Consider more sources of no mana cost repeatable token creation?

Eldrazi tokens can be used as ramp or devour fodder. You could also include a budget Eldrazi such as Artisan of Kozilek to be able to tutor for with Beyond. Kozilek can reanimate a creature you devoured. Garruk and Xenagos can be repeatable source of tokens. Xenagos's +1 with tokens can make a lot of ramp and Garruk can be repeatable draw, his -3 can draw a lot of cards with Thromok.

Kessig Wolf Run and Skarrg, the Rage Pits are lands that can give Thromok trample. Game Trail and Sheltered Thicket are budget Gruul dual lands and Wood Elves can search for Thicket.

If you like some of these suggestions I offer more advice including cuts. Good luck with your deck.

Since I playtested your Deck and find it personally one of the most wicked EDH decks I have ever played, I came with some tweaks along which have proven themself very efficient in my version of your Deck Idea.

  1. Enter the Infinite together with Nexus of Fate gives you an eternal "your turn only" loop which is a very efficient way for make the stage free to all the Eldrazi in the queue.

  2. No Mercy is a pretty good Attack-stopper in early to near mid game, since in a true multiplayer match, in which the other players realize how dangerous you are, they will not attack you since they're too afraid of being naked for the attacks of the other players.

  3. Blue Sun's Zenith is despite the higher mana costs much more better than Mind Spring . So you have the choice to use it for yourself (and normally you don't do that in early game, just in mid or late or shortly: in situations where enough mana is ready to be used) or let an enemy draw himself to death.

  4. Platinum Emperion speaks for himself. Colorless, so why not using it? (For sure, it does not fit into the "Eldrazi" Flavor, but Ravnicas Supreme Verdict, or an old school Defense of the Hearth does not either. So why not making excuses and add the Emperion? The plus in effectiveness can not be denied.

  5. It That Betrays is such much better than Artisan of Kozilek , since it a) synergizes with it's own annihilator effect and has synergy potentials with "All is Dust" and b) has potential for future board wipes in "WAR" like "Single Combat" So why getting back just one creature from your grave, when there is the potential to get x>1 permanents from another player (every turn you attack) Needless to say, it's ability supports other annihilator effects of the Titans or the Pathrazer.
