You have many Eldrazi that care about cards being exiled but you only have 7 effects in the deck that exile cards? Do you have issues having enough exiled targets?

If you need more effects maybe consider some cards with annihilator: Artisan of Kozilek / Bane of Bala Ged,

Dimensional Infiltrator seems to be in flavor with the deck if you think you have enough colorless mana support (8)

Or removal Ashes to Ashes, Curse of the Swine, Reality Shift, Phyrexian Scriptures, All Is Dust

or add more of the usual graveyard removal artifacts: Tormod's Crypt, Nihil Spellbomb, Sentinel Totem, Relic of Progenitus

Lastly a personal favorite in my mill EDH decks Undead Alchemist which I think you can still copy with Lazav and exile if you stack the triggers correctly.

I really like this deck and even though this is already budget friendly, you should consider Bane of Bala Ged Great job!

I do Like the idea of your deck, and with your commander you can get a ton of mana ready to go and cast a ton of cards while they are buffed too! I see you have many cards that are for protecting your cards. This is very important of course, but also remember you should be able to get rid of their cards if needed. I put your deck up against my Sliver EDH deck, and all I needed to put your deck at a stopping halt was Ward Sliver. Now I understand that's hard to get rid of especially when green is blocked. Here's a few colorless suggestions I found really quick and might not be the best, especially for staying cheap(karn). But keep an open mind! This site is all about helping each other and designing amazing decks, have great day! :)

Suggestions: Bane of Bala Ged, Karn Liberated, Perilous Vault

jordybear2002: i'm not sure why you think tron needs Gilded Lotus for mana ramp. the decks main aim is to have 7 mana by turn 3 or 4. i'm also not sure what you think Eldrazi Mimic or Ghostfire Blade adds to the deck. a 2/1 or +2/+2 is rather underwhelming compared to a Bane of Bala Ged. i will say though that Platinum Angel is a good suggestion and more than likely going into the sideboard. surprisingly, there are good number of decks at my local meta that run very little (and in some cases 0) removal, that she would absolutely poo-poo all over.

so i'm thinkin of building Gx Tron as my next modern deck, but i can't afford the normal bombs Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Karn Liberated, Wurmcoil Engine, or Platinum Emperion. so i thought i'd find budget options.

Bane of Bala Ged seems to be the first obvious choice. its effect is like Annihilator 2 but better. Myr Battlesphere can hit for 12 total damage turn 4. or if i play 1 on turn 3, and a second on turn 4, the first can swing for as much as 22 total damage if i tap all 8 tokens plus the 2nd battlesphere. Steel Hellkite is an evasive beater and removal, while Banefire provides an uncounterable/unpreventable finisher.

opinions on these cards as budget options for GR Tron? if you have other suggestions, i'd prefer they be 8 mana or less. personally not comfortable with the idea of running cards beyond the range of the 3 urza lands plus 1 "normal" (only able to produce 1 mana) land. if i can assemble the urza lands turn 3 i want to be able to start droppin bombs right away.

heres the list i have so far:

A few thoughts:

First and probably most important, you have a high-CMC deck and almost no ramp. You're going to start slow and recover slowly from wraths. Look at the signets, Gilded Lotus, Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, Somberwald Sage (you can always sac dorks if you don't need em)... You'd benefit from Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx even sac'ing creatures a lot. Late game, stuff like Boundless Realms, Zendikar Resurgent or Everflowing Chalice are huge for recovery.

Cards like Elvish Piper are great to cheat stuff out directly, Aether Vial (pricey) or Quicksilver Amulet.

Second, making everything indestructible is tough in your colors, but if you can protect Kresh, wraths are actually a benefit. I'd definitely put in Darksteel Plate.

Third, in a deck like this I'd probably sideboard a few cards just to deal with flying like Gravity Well and Whirlwind.

Last, you've got the right idea making players sacrifice and using -1/-1 counters (though you don't really have enough -1/-1 to do it reliably) -- but you have almost no exile. That's how you get around indestructibility. Appetite for Brains, Bane of Bala Ged, Burn from Within.... I'm not even to 'C' yet - lots of options!

This looks really sweet. You have all the good stuff.

You might want to consider Thought-Knot Seer, basically a Thoughtseize on a stick and a nice beater.

Cavern of Souls might actualy be feasible for control matchups. Worth a shot with all those Jace-Decks running around. Make sure to keep like 2x Wastes in the deck, otherwise Ghost Quarter, Path, etc. hit you twice as hard.

Imho, 5x 10+ CMC creatures seems a bit excessive for modern. Especially since dropping Ulamog should make people scoop a fair percentage of matches. I would consider some cheaper coices making "nut draws" even more dangerous.

Imagine a hand with natural Tron, a Mimic and a 6 or 7 CMC Eldrazi like Oblivion Sower or Bane of Bala Ged

Are you considering building a sideboard in the Future?
