Artisan of Kozilek Discussion

I would replace one Nest Invader with an Elvish Mystic, and if you wanted two I'd take out an Artisan of Kozilek.

And on further lookins at your deck i'd not recommend Yisan Chord, you lack cards of different costs to search for with him.

Finnaly, Spawning Breath would probably be a better card to take out then Brood Birthing.

One last thing is that if you equip Deathrender to a spawn, and then sacrifice you can get any card out for 2 mana, one of which you get right back.

I only count 2 uncommons (2x Keen Sense), assuming that the random Artisan of Kozilek is a typo and not actually a card in your deck. Armadillo Cloak is a common.

I might opt for more Gladecover Scout and less Hopeful Eidolon, possibly moving the Eidolon into your sideboard. However, I'm not a Boggles player, so I could be wrong here.

Wild Growth is another option if you want more Utopia Sprawl-esque effects.

Hyena Umbra and Spider Umbra might be worth considering.

I'm not a huge fan of cycling lands in aggro decks, since you want to be curving out, not spending time cashing in your lands for extra cards. Again, I could be wrong in this area.

You need to cut 2 cards, though having the random Artisan of Kozilek makes one cut easy.

If you need to get back your Enchantress, Eternal Witness is always a reasonable card.

Mindcensor cushions the following:

Fetches (OG zend, Evo Wilds, Myriad Landscape

Zur decks(one of the top EDHREC commanders)

Hard tutors (Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Gamble, Worldly Tutor(all EDHREC popular cards except gamble)

Ramp (Rampant Growth, Cultivate etc(in most played EDHREC cards)

Funny with Path (think about it)

You should run Ghost Quarter too, which can become a strip mine with Birdman on the field.

He really gets better against more expensive decks, and, judging by your list, your meta has money (foil Wasteland? WTF?). I also thought of a few more things:

Crucible of Worlds (You know why it's good, you're running Ramunap Excavator)

Artisan of Kozilek triggers on cast, so it's unconditional recursion that gets past Gryff and Orb. It's also a 10/9 annihilator 2 beater, which is pretty great by itself anyway.

A early game token fountain to put the pressure on is always nice to. Black has Bitterblossom which is pretty good, but for you I'd certainly recommend Master of the Wild Hunt. It's a relatively unknown card, but with a Sol Ring on T1 you can have 2/2's every turn from T2 onward, and the Hunter has built in instant speed removal. Sign yourself up.

Oh yeah, and Mask of Memory in creature-based stax. All day everyday with Mask of Memory in creature-based stax.

Yes, you can also just cast them.

Cast abilities (like on Artisan of Kozilek) and enter-the-battlefield abilities have no impact at all on whether you're allowed to cast the spell. They trigger only after the spell is cast or even after it resolved (etb).

Bounty of the Luxa, Vizier of Many Faces and Commit / Memory are some newer cards that preform amazingly well for me in Rashmi. Overwhelming Stampede wins me lots of games in my Rashmi deck. So does Artisan of Kozilek. Here's my list, check it out maybe you will get other ideas.

Commander / EDH* Rzepkanut


Happy gathering!!

Have you thought of throwing in some eldrazi, ones like Artisan of Kozilek or Desolation Twin while their mana costs are steep they aren't any of the titans so the are low priced and will still pack a serious punch

Ulamog's Crusher and Artisan of Kozilek are splashy and cheap. You would have to rework a bunch of it, but I made a r/g Eldrazi deck for Pauper using Eldrazi spawn summoners like Nest Invader, Brood Birthing, and Awakening Zone and Hand of Emrakul plus the big ones I already mentioned.

Darksch81 on Yidris, Cascade Lord

I've made some changes:

Added Chainer's Edict, Hunting Wilds, Ranger's Path, Sylvan Primordial, Mwonvuli Beast Tracker, (soon Fierce Empath), Flametongue Kavu, Bring to Light, Cinder Glade, Eternal Witness


Explosive Vegetation, Artisan of Kozilek, Thrasios, Triton Hero, Rupture Spire, Gamekeeper, Simic Signet, Far Wanderings, Ancient Excavation, Frenzied Fugue

And the deck goes better. Sometimes I don't need to cast Commander because the deck works all alone like a mana ramp deck for big spells who can break game for their own.Leave some comments or suggestions for the deck. I'd like to add a Baral's Expertise or Rishkar's Expertise but I don't know how to remove
