Decimator of the Provinces Discussion
2 weeks ago
Overall I like the deck, especially since Eldrazi are my favorite tribe to build around in the game. Fun fact: you can use cards with devoid in a colorless deck as long as you have mana sources that give you the mana you need. Cards like Decimator of the Provinces would be great in this deck, and you can run them in a purely colorless deck since emerge doesn't count towards color identity. If you can I'd add some cards that give your creatures trample, since if your opponents have lots of chump blockers you're not going to be getting any damage through. You seem to be creature-light in this deck, and if you don't draw any of them you're going to be in bad shape. I'm not too big on Energy Chamber or Expedition Map, since they don't actually ramp you or interact with your deck too much.

So, usually you're gunna wanna stomp on people with all the creatures you have. Craterhoof Behemoth is the typical go to BUT that card is super expensive. Decimator of the Provinces and End-Raze Forerunners are acceptable budget substitutes though.

Frontier Siege is a cheap bit that will get you 4 each of your turns that could come in handy.
Bellowing Tanglewurm is an amazing all star that people don't use enough sometimes making your board unblock able against non green opponents.
Terastodon is great for taking out utility lands as well as artifacts/enchantments.
Crashing Drawbridge is fantastic to give your creatures haste so you don't need to wait to go for that swing.

Cards with emerge: Abundant Maw, Decimator of the Provinces, Distended Mindbender, Drownyard Behemoth, Elder Deep-Fiend, It of the Horrid Swarm, Lashweed Lurker, Mockery of Nature, Vexing Scuttler, and the best, Wretched Gryff.
Cards to go with emerge: Foul Emissary (expensive but useful for creating blockers), Desperate Sentry (same issues but can be big and also gives a creature when it dies), and all travelers/creatures that create value by dying (Voice of Resurgence anyone?).

Ditch blue, and use a fetcheless RG mana base, look up fetchless. storm for reference.
Stop using ramp cards that have a cmc higher than 1. Its bad enough to loose 1 mana ramp cards to removal, don't make the issue rose by losing even more tempo with them.
Cards like Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma
Even cards like Sakura-Tribe Elder are so weak that they don't really see play outside valakut decks, where the fetched land acting as Lightning Bolt is a huge upside. Similarly Sylvan Caryatid is played only in Soulflayer decks, as it grants a relevant keyword on top of ramping, and Jeskai Ascendancy decks, where your combo piece being hexproof matters a LOT.
Don't run "do nothing" cards, like Electrodominance.
If you feel the need to run card draw, run something like Life's Legacy, or even just Combustible Gearhulk, that way you avoid having to splash blue, and get a card that plays better in most situations. (gearhulk is 4-8 damage, or you draw 3, life's legacy can be played after some value plays baited counterspells)
P.s.: If you want some fine budget powerhouses you may want to tinker around with cards like It of the Horrid Swarm, or Decimator of the Provinces - while they require a very specific mana curve among creatures in the deck to accomodate them, they are brutal if those conditions are fullfilled.

Hey, you asked for my help.
I'm not a fan of Eldrazi or five color therefore my advice will be in one area you could improve your deck. Consider more repeatable draw sources? Sources of draw that you don't have to pay any mana to draw cards. Creatures are a big part of your deck therefore consider enchantments that draw when a creature you control ETB?
Ascendancy can also give big Eldrazi as well as Morophon haste which makes them more of threats especially with annihilator. Skullclamp is good with 0/1 Eldrazi tokens since equipping one kills it or sac the spawn for mana drawing two cards. These are less expensive price repeatable draw sources, but there's more powerful sources if you're willing to spend more.
Willing to spend even more:
Cards to consider cutting:
Good luck with your deck.

This is an updated version of the old pioneer dredgless dredge. Tome Scour and Commune with the Gods aren't as good at the self mill midrange plan as Satyr Wayfinder and you absolutely want at least 2 Driven. You also want Gurmag Angler only in your main board and your sideboard needs at least 1 Decimator of the Provinces. Since its a black deck there should be at least 2 each of Thoughtseize and Fatal Push hanging around in the 75 somewhere. DRS isn't very strong without fetches, and maybe an Assassin's Trophy or two in the 75 somewhere could be good.
