ramuzzini on CHEAP MECHA - ELDRAZI

I think since you are running colorless you should take out Terrarion and Prophetic Prism. You do not want to be trading colorless mana for colored mana if you have no colored spells.

You can replace one of them with Mind Stone which is a mana rock and can be used to draw a card. I would recommend Warping Wail to replace the other and adding Ratchet Bomb to the sideboard for some early game disruption.

You could probably use another big Eldrazi in this deck with 7-10 CMC such as Artisan of Kozilek, Void Winnower, or Kozilek, the Great Distortion. I agree the utility lands are a good idea too.

Good luck!

It's great! This was one commander that Todd wanted to make, haha. I showed him Colossus of Akros and Worldspine Wurm. I like all the X-cost spells and untap effects too. This deck should never have mana issues lol! Imo, Thought Vessel seems redundant since your commander is indestructible. If you're running From Beyond, you gotta have some Eldrazi to go find, lol! Good cheap ($) ones are: Artisan of Kozilek, Desolation Twin, Pathrazer of Ulamog, It That Betrays. Annihilator is a bitch. Also, Nezahal, Primal Tide seems like it fits in here since you draw with him when opponents play Magic, and you can easily return him from the grave to the battlefield. Keep working on it, but it's a great start!

Actually, I'd also recommend Tilonalli's Skinshifter as a great combo with any of the big eldrazi, namely Pathrazer of Ulamog or Artisan of Kozilek

The main strategy I'd go with is generating large amounts of artifact tokens/creatures to win with either riches or crazy recursion loops with giant beaters, sacking a few myr or thopters with something like Champion of Stray Souls to bring back all your giant beasties. This is just a bunch of possible options that would help with that strategy.

Conduit of Ruin is really good to search out the big game creatures you want instead of having to rely on drawing the correct one. Deceiver of Forms is really good with any Annihilator since all your creatures would have Annihilator, especially with Blight Herder there. Replace two wastes with two Ghost Quarters since they are just objectively better since you don't have to sacrifice them. Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is also really good in this deck. Void Winnower if you want to be rude. Artisan of Kozilek let's you return cards that you didn't want dead.

@ KumaLKS There was a point where I had every huge beater in the deck, what it comes down to is you're typically casting Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Artisan of Kozilek or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth for the on cast effects and not to use as beaters. Don't get me wrong, the cards are great to destroy a board state, however, when you're dropping these bombs - you're most likely already in a win condition.

These are especially nice when you have 11+ counters on Animar, Soul of Elements and Cloudstone Curio out.
