Jagd_Tallgeese on Eldrazi Ingestive Spawning (On a Budget)

I would drop one Mist Intruder and one Eldrazi Skyspawner. I would replace them with two copies of Adverse Conditions. You only have one creatures whose CMC is 7, and that is Bane of Bala Ged, so having 2 Conduit of Ruin seems a little strange. Even though it would casting your other eldrazi cheaper, the issue is that you would have a majority of them on the field since their CMC is less than Conduit's. However, if you want to keep the Conduit of Ruin, you can replace the Blight Herder with 2 Desolation Twin or Breaker of Armies. Hope that helps!

First of all, I would either cut Ruric Thar or cut a few noncreature spells, since his ability applies to everyone, and all it takes to bring someone down from 40 to 0 is 7 noncreatures.

I would cut Vexing Shusher and replace it with Spellbreaker Behemoth.

Alongside mana dorks, you probably should use extra lands per turn cards such as Mina and Denn, Wildborn and Azusa, Lost but Seeking.

Siege Behemoth and Arlinn Kord  Flip are nice for getting past pesky chump blockers, should your creatures not have trample handy.

Pathbreaker Ibex, Rapacious One, Balefire Dragon, and technically Deus of Calamity are all cards that benefit from Xenago's pump ability.

To protect your fatties during attacking, Stonehoof Chieftain can help with those with deathtouch or protection from red/green and Breaker of Armies helps by being the "attention stealer".

Malignus makes for a very nice early game threat and beater as well.

One lovely synergy I like to run is Dragon Throne of Tarkir+Heroes' Bane. Sure, my 256/256 gets reduced to a mere doorstop, but much worse things happen afterwards.

You can find my Xenagos deck here. Who knows, you may find some cards you like!

my only idea is Bane of Bala Ged or Breaker of Armies. Neither are that amazing though

Me again LOL. I have a few suggestions for cards to make use of the Ingest mechanic and the cards placed in your opponent's exile. Consider Blight Herder (decent body and more mana ramp), Conduit of Ruin (seems really good too and allows you to search for something huge maybe a Breaker of Armies which would decimate your opponent's board when it attacks), Cryptic Cruiser (again seems good making use of your opponent's exile pile to tap creatures), Deceiver of Form (could fill that Breaker of Armies slot for the Conduit of Ruin and has a pretty bomb ability), Drowner of Hope (seems good for control again), Matter Reshaper (this card is just awesome and usually does really well even if it doesn't catch a 3 CMC creature it's extra card draw), Oblivion Sower (uses the exile mechanic and steals lands for you), Reality Smasher (again just so much value), Ruin Processor (if you find you need life and makes use of the exile mechanic, also the search from Conduit of Ruin), Thought Harvester (exiles you more cards to feed the beast). Anyways I think I've provided you with more than enough to contemplate here, and it wasn't my intention to rework your deck as I love the original. Just some additional options to consider. Cheers!

for example, if I was at 5 life and had a Marionette Master at pt 1/3 and also had 3 Servo Tokens, and was attacked by a Breaker of Armies and an Oblivion Sower, and the attacker was at 3 life, and because marionette master still triggers when it dies with the artifacts (ruling on, do you die before the triggers resolve? or do the triggers resolve same time as combat damage? who wins, blocker or attacker?

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx seems strong in almost anything. maybe swap the Arbor Elf for Voyaging Satyr then

Ghitu Encampment and Raging Ravine are clever with your commander, block and bounce take no damage

Spinerock Knoll, Thawing Glaciers, Winding Canyons, Myriad Landscape, Temple of the False God,

Akoum Stonewaker doesn't seem that mana effient

Barrage of Boulders there are cheaper no block effects, Gruul Charm

Fireshrieker could be replaced with Berserkers' Onslaught

Grazing Gladehart or Retreat to Kazandu could be Lifegift, more players(especially those who ramp) more lifegain

are Embodiment of Fury and Embodiment of Insight strong enough?

Into the Wilds could be Druidic Satchel

Breaker of Armies effect could be much cheaper Taunting Elf or more versitile Nemesis Mask or Noble Quarry

Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre could be Kozilek, Butcher of Truth same graveyard shuffling, better effect

Xenagos, God of Revels could really speed up the deck.

Boundless Realms could kill with Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle (another good card with valakut is Prismatic Omen)

Decimate and Ghirapur Orrery from your maybeboard seem good too. I really want to hear how the orrery works if you make the swap

Hope some of this helped, and looks like a fun deck!

Also, will you be adding in Kozilek, the Great Distortion or Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger with the Emrakul ban? Other Eldrazi could be Breaker of Armies, Desolation Twin, Bane of Bala Ged, Conduit of Ruin, Gruesome Slaughter, Oblivion Sower, or Deceiver of Form. Kari Zev or her expertise too perhaps. Enraged Giant to compliment reality smasher. Cogwork Assembler let's you play another gearhulk. There are still options out there for replacement.

Errast on Reanimator Control (Don't Ask)

I agree with Lordeh on the need for more strong reanimator targets in this deck. Although the gearhulks are your best options, there are a lot of huge beaters in Battle for Zendikar that may peak your interest for mere pennies.

Stuff like;- Bane of Bala Ged- Eldrazi Devastator- Breaker of Armies- Void Winnower- Plated Crusher- Demon of Dark Schemes

Anyways, I wish you the best of luck with this deck, and I hope you'll consider some of these suggestions.
