Conduit of Ruin Discussion

Lordeh on Thalia's and friends (Naya Edition)

6 days ago

Ok so after game day I found the weaknesses and strengths of the deck as far as play testing against my local meta.

Round 1 Vs R/G Energy won 2-1

This went quite well with the exception that Lathnu Hellion cause dome issues early game. However a Thalia, Heretic Cathar with a Metallic Mimic or Always Watching proved effective.

Round 2 vs W/B Zombies 0-2

This was just awful draws and stuck on 2 lands by myself with the opponent curving out each time so it was just brutally quick. I did not trust in the heart of the cards.

Round 3 W/B Zombies 2-0

Complete reversal in how the deck played with just an additional land. Rhonas the Indomitable with Always Watching out meant that as long as i has a creature they had to deal with him and couldn't.

Round 4 U/G Rashmi/Eldrazi 1-2

Lost game 1 because I was unable to deal with Rashmi, Eternities Crafter and he ramped into Elder Deep-Fiend and Conduit of Ruin and go Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger and blew out the board state.

Game 2 was a turn 5 kill by myself by just dropping Thraben Inspector, Metallic Mimic and 3 Thalia's Lieutenant

Game 3 was close but came down to missing a crucial land drop turn 3. Getting down Thalia, Heretic Cathar a turn early would have made the difference.

Recap. The deck went fairly well but I have made some changes by cutting the Khenra Charioteer for more Always Watching and putting in 2 Declaration in Stone in the sideboard for zombies.

odiffido on Best Eldrazi Deck Ever!!!

well, Eye of Ugin is banned in modern (i used to use it before it was banned) so u cant use it. the Eldrazi Displacer is not colorless so i cant put it in. also i find that i normally have enough mana so i dont need Kozilek's Channeler, and i would prefer to use Conduit of Ruin instead. and for the other cards like Spawnsire of Ulamog is a choice of personal preferance so if u want, u can use those instead. the eldrazi conscription is a great idea, i had not seen that before, thanks for the idea. i think i might switch it out for 2 Artisan of Kozilek, or do you have another sujestion?thanks for the sujestions.

This feels like a really low creature count for an Animar deck, I must say.

Some default inclusions are also absent - cards like Ancestral Statue, which lets you make Animar huge (since you just keep returning and recasting Statue). I think you could add more eldrazi as well, like Conduit of Ruin and Oblivion Sower. Solemn Simulacrum and Duplicant are excellent value-adds too.

I like where this deck is going. I am a huge Gruul fan and I very much enjoy Xenagos, God of Revels as a commander. I would recommend Conduit of Ruin and Brutalizer Exarch to search out for big beaters. Void Winnower, Bane of Bala Ged, Artisan of Kozilek, Pathrazer of Ulamog, and any of the Eldrazi Titans all make for amazing finishers in a 1v1 setting and are also back breaking with the Annihilator ability. Hellkite Charger + Savage Ventmaw can give you a lot of extra combats to beat your opponent with. I like using Ulvenwald Tracker, Steel Hellkite, and Terastodon as ways of removing problem cards that stand in your way. Lurking Predators is an insane card once it get rolling and is one I really enjoy in my Xenagos deck. Warstorm Surge and Berserkers' Onslaught are just silly cards that really bring the hurt. I hope this has been somewhat helpful to you and good luck! :)

I dont like Signal the Clans, Evolutionary Leap (although I haven't used it), and Man-o'-War

I would definitely add Mystic Snake, Conduit of Ruin, Bloom Tender, and Consecrated Sphinx. Maybe Flametongue Kavu and Genesis (aka Phil Collins)

You might also want some ways to protect creatures. Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Dosan the Falling Leaf, Stoneshaker Shaman, War's Toll, and Price of Glory protect against counterspells

Archetype of Endurance and Asceticism protect your creatures once theyre out

Conduit of Ruin has a nice combo with Sanctum of Ugin and Oblivion Sower is one of the best colorless 6 drops. I know you're concerned about price but Wurmcoil Engine is out there.

Actually i think you already have a Conduit of Ruin, maybe an AEtherplasm instead. Sorry about that.

I don't think Myojin of Seeing Winds gets the divinity counter since it's being played from exile. Maybe Conduit of Ruin instead?
