Conduit of Ruin
Creature — Eldrazi

The first creature spell you cast each turn costs less to cast.

Conduit of Ruin Discussion
1 day ago
Well, as a player who is currently building muldrotha too (Muldrotha the Wealthy for reference purposes and casual self-promotion), I am eager to lend a hand. I personally started out with a goal in mind - win by casting Villainous Wealth a lot. For a while, my deck was literally Muldrotha and VW only, until I figured out how to fill the gaps.
This is the biggest miss here. I do not see any goal. The current deck is a pile of cards with no real purpose. For example, you have Conduit of Ruin that fetches nothing, The Mending of Dominaria, which shuffles back your whole graveyard, Mystic Retrieval which has a blue/red identity and is not legal to play in a muldrotha deck and you have Mana Drain and Sisters of Stone Death in the same deck...
There are some questions here and it is time to get some answers:
- In one sentence, how do you want to win?
- Based on that sentence, can you identify 10 cards in the current deck that do not support that?
- Does your deck have any restrictions in terms of budget or something else?

Eldrazi cards that can be considered to be cut or swapped:
You are pretty much running all the good costed Eldrazi, nothing more to add in as you will clog your deck too much. You rather have a few key Eldrazi and ways to accelerate and cheat them out rather than having your hand full of them. Other ways you can cheat them out are like Quicksilver Amulet or Elvish Piper you do miss the cast trigger for some of them though. Albeit a bit jankier, Sneak Attack and using cards like Endless Sands allows you to have the Eldrazi way ahead of time.

Grisky control runs rampant in my meta, so I like having the 2 caverns to ensure that my creatures stick. I have considered running Conduit of Ruin over goreclaw because it isn't susceptible to bolt and can be cheaper than goreclaw with the right lands. I like the idea of Simian Spirit Guide and Gemstone Caverns, but I'll have to experiment.

I run Conduit of Ruin in all my non-blue EDH decks. I include Sandstone Oracle and Kozilek, the Great Distortion as colorless ways to get card advantage that are tutor-able. I call this my Conduit package, and I love it, and I suggest it to anyone who is having trouble Ramping and Drawing cards. (Lookin at you )

Conduit of Ruin because you have some big boys and it also tutors for your Eldrazi;p

So given this was the first true test of the deck it went okay. I finished 21 out of 53 people. Also, it was MY first "competitive" event outside of a FNM. So overall I was pleased.
Turn 1: Eldrazi Temple to Mimic Turn 2: Eldrazi Temple to Mimic x 2 Turn 3: Mine to Reality Smasher and I'm swinging for 20.
Yes, that's the perfect draw/play for that type of a combo. But it happens more often that you'd think. And as for the Conduit of Ruin, I am exclusively fetching to Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger in most cases and 95% of the time when he hits the table my opponent resigns. Just being able to fetch and play Ulamog on turn 4 potentially is a huge advantage IMO.
The black disruption does slow the deck down overall, and maybe that's reason enough to pull it. But I'll tell you, there's not much more fun than dropping a turn 1 Thoughtseize, grabbing Grapeshot out of your opponents slimy little hand and then dropping a Surgical Extraction on the table and removing their primary win-con before their turn has even happened. I did that twice against an opponent during the tournament. He was less than pleased...
