with Extraplanar Lens you could run Snow-Covered Island so only you can benefit from it.

Also I wouldn't run Dread Statuary, Blighted Cataract, and/ or Zoetic Cavern; lands shouldn't be sac-ed by your commander because you are not ramping also if you do sac a land to get a "big boy" and it gets destroyed right off the bat then you're a creature and a land down...

Blue must have counter spells Arcane Denial, Disallow and Counterspell! Dream Fracture is one of those fyi.

Other things I would recommend Chasm Skulker, Consecrated Sphinx, Blightsteel Colossus, Kederekt Leviathan, and Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur.

Embrakul is a dead draw--any time you draw her, you are not drawing a useful card worth casting. As such, you do not want more than one copy in the deck. To answer your second question, there are a couple other options for a more budget-friendly replacement.

What makes Emrakul work in this deck is not her obscene power--it's her fourth ability. If you draw her, you can place her back into your library with Tormenting Voice, thus making her available for Indomitable Creativity. The only other Eldrazi with this option are Kozilek, Butcher of Truth and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre--neither of which are inexpensive (and, since you are not casting the creature, their other abilities are nowhere close to a match to Emrakul).

There are four non-eldrazi options:

  • Blightsteel Colossus: A little less expensive than the Eldrazi titans, but still a game-winner.

  • Darksteel Colossus: 11/11 with trample is not bad, though certainty a step down from the previous 4 options.

  • Guile - great card, not great for this deck.

  • Progenitus - difficult to remove short of Wrath of God or its ilk, and cannot be blocked.

Change commander to Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. He costs less for one, and when he attacks the opponent exiles a 5th of their deck.

Eldrazi Conscription with the right ramp you can attach to Ulamog or Kozilek, preferably Ulamog to get annihilator 4 and annihilator 2 from Eldrazi Conscription (I hope that's how it works) or ceaseless hunger to ruin enemy plans.

Maybe get Ugin, the Spirit Dragon as he's colorless and can be a huge nuisance to the enemy, especially his -X.

Blightsteel Colossus with Whispersilk Cloak, instant win right there. And Swiftfoot Boots if needed. (Minimum 15 mana if Blightsteel Colossus isn't on the battlefield yet)

Get both Kozileks in there, and for a casual format with friends get Emrakul, the Aeons Torn to make your friends hate you.

Either Karn could work as well. (More so Karn Liberated)

In conclusion, change commander, develop new strategy, and be sure to- OH, and Quietus Spike. My friend uses it all the time in his commander deck, and he ALWAYS gets it in every starting hand, without stacking. Attach that onto Eldrazi Mimic on early turns to wipe your enemy's health. Prioritize lower mana cost ramp like Sol Ring, and as a joke for casual play, Black Lotus, Mox Gems (Mox Lotus especially), and obviously, Saute, because we all like some roasted hobgoblin

I think it looks solid Blightsteel Colossus would work well with the ramp

WalkingIllusion The infect stuff was based on the idea that I can use recurrsion to keep using them to drop infect counters on people and the creatures could just walk in. But I did pull all but Inkmoth nexus (because I can use it with hatred to instakill a player if needed) and a Phyrexian Juggernaut (which would work sweet with Blade of Selves and the Mirage Mirror to take out multiple people at once). Blightsteel Colossus is listed but I'm actually running the Darksteel Colossus instead because Blightsteel colossus is kinda boring to play. I may go back to an infect version but I'm liking the direction this is going now. As for your counterspells suggestion, I need to decide if I'm going with cheap CMC counters or some of the bigger ones.

jpsuchecki So Skeleton Shard is a good idea - need to fig out what to replace. Buried Ruin will go in and replace another land - I also have Academy Ruins which is sweet, but more ways to pull from my graveyard gives me more of an excuse to run Codex Shredder ;) Command Tower - not sure how I didn't add that. And probably Command Beacon too since Vela isn't cheap to cast. Rhystic Study... I.. want to add it... but i always want to add it... but "didja pay yer 1?? didja pay yer 1??" really starts to annoy my local group ;)

Ledian Hmm. I think i may have Steel Overseer. I do agree there are better options than Seer's Lantern, and I think I will add Voltaic Key.

Thanks, y'all!

I'll toss an upvote, I always appreciate a little creativity in deck-building.

With Illicit Auction , you can always start a crazy bidding war over something like a Blightsteel Colossus , use the card in conjunction with Neheb, the Eternal , or find a way to pop down a Wound Reflection right after the bidding war is over.

The "fun" isn't in winning the bidding war, but forcing out a huge threat on the table, while simultaneously causing someone to unintentionally knock themselves out of the game XD.
