Deceiver of Form Discussion

CavemanlyMan on Eldrazi Copy Win!

May I suggest Helm of the Host and Minion Reflector .

Also after looking into it some more here are some other cards I found: Arcane Artisan , Heat Shimmer , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Kindred Charge , Mirror March , Mirrorpool , Rite of Replication , Saheeli Rai , Soul Foundry , Twinflame , Zndrsplt's Judgment , Splinter Twin

Also I feel like you don't have a whole lot of the really good eldrazi. Obviously you are missing the eldrazi titans, but those cost a lot. Some other suggestions are It That Betrays , Thought-Knot Seer (has an enter the battlefield effect), Deceiver of Form , Breaker of Armies .

You might benefit from having a lot of copies of cards like Platinum Emperion , Platinum Angel or Void Winnower out on the battlefield at the same time, but I would say that deviates from your overall game plan.

Hey, nice brew with new Atla.

Consider more haste?

With the expensive price manabase here with many Forest dual lands Nature's Lore is an upgrade for Farseek . Consider replacing Cultivate and Reach with two drop mana rocks: Talisman of Impulse , Talisman of Unity , Talisman of Conviction ? Consider Open the Armory or Stoneforge Mystic ? It's another tutor that can get one of Greaves, Skullclamp, Staff, Boots.

I think Regal Behemoth is a better Mirari's Wake or Zendikar Resurgent with Atla. In fact consider cutting both of these cards for Regal? It's a creature, gives you the monarch (draw) and it has the same land bonus ability. The +1/+1 that Wake gives all your creatures can be detrimental if you're trying to use Skullclamp to sac 0/1 Eggs which is an excellent source of both card draw and cheating creatures onto the battlefield. It's broken, anything that makes this interaction worse I wouldn't include.

Cards to consider cutting:

mfogle on Eldrazi Deck Improvement?

Are you interested in trying/investing in a set of tron lands and expedition maps? I've been brewing a budget variant of my personal $300+ modern Eldrazitron titans deck. I'd be shooting for less $100 budget and focusing around Deceiver of Form and Eldrazi Mimic , urza lands will probly be needed to get the deck rolling. I can post it up and link it here if you want to check it out.

I like that you removed the red from this and went with Aminatou, the Fateshifter .

Not sure how competitive you want to make this but here are some cards to think about:

Arbiter of the Ideal

Augury Adept

Bone Harvest

Candles of Leng

Conduit of Ruin

Conundrum Sphinx

Deceiver of Form

Djinn of Wishes


Also you might want to look into the possibility of snow lands and Scrying Sheets

You want to not have to rely on cards like Planar Bridge to make the deck playable. Also means you can play Endless One , Desolation Twin , Artisan of Kozilek and Conduit of Ruin .

Also, Deceiver of Form is fun.

Deruvid on Urza's Eldrazi Midrange

No problem. Ancient Stirrings grabs any colorless card, not just creatures or artifacts. It may be counter-intuitive, but lands are, in fact, colorless cards. Even though they produce colored mana, they do not have a mana cost themselves, and thus have no color. So out of the top five cards in your library, you can get a land OR creature with Ancient Stirrings .

As for which large boys to pare down, it looks like either you've already lowered the numbers (for Reality Smasher !) so the only other ones I would cut would be perhaps another copy of Oblivion Sower , Deceiver of Forms and Void Winnower to make way for more copies of some of the smaller powerhouses like Thought-Knot Seer or Reality Smasher .
