How about Dread Defiler ? (it goes against the deck's strategy, but still)

Sorry for the semi-late replies.

Thanks for the ideas! I love this Deepfathom Skulker !

Endless One is a great idea. He may just be a dumb beater, but sometimes with something like Breaker of Armies , it should be a blast!

I really like that From Beyond + All Is Dust combo. That's gross!

griffstick:

Spawnsire of Ulamog seems amazing, especially since we as a playgroup allow wish cards.

I'd love Dread Defiler , but I'm sadly Simic colors. I do however love Eldrazi Mimic and Endbringer ! Endbringer's a neat card I've never seen.


Thanks everyone for the help!

Dread Defiler is very good especially if you have high power Eldrazi in the graveyard.

Man, I loved the idea. Since I'm a fan of H.P. Lovecraft and his mythos, it's obvious that the Eldrazi would be a creature type I would love too.

As option to be a commander to Eldrazis, I would suggest use Kruphix, God of Horizons , since UG will bring to you many mana ramp and negations to control the game until the Titans comes to field. But, honestly, I prefer themed decks such as your deck, and a lot of good interactions to make the game fun, but with the possibility to make your deck terrfying and a big threat on table. So, using tokens and creatures like clerics makes the theme very simillar with the Lovecraft's Mythos and the histories like Cthulhu's Call.

I don't know if your purpose is use a budget deck, but I recommend include the other Titan cards ( Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre and Kozilek, Butcher of Truth ), to have more big threats in table. Maybe fixing your CMC, removing card with less interactions or irrelevant effects and add more utility cards or pontual removals. Think about reduces the number of Eldrazis with great mana costs, but with simple effects, for more creatures with lesser mana costs and advantages. Breaker of Armies is nice, but without haste and no other effect when it attacks, it's a big dumb creature, and the same occours with Desolation Twin and Endless One . Dread Defiler is nice, but you will want your big creatures (the Titans I guess) in GY to reanimate, otherwise the rest isn't so good to make this effect relevant. Thats was my thougts, but still loving your idea

apart from Demon of Wailing Agonies and Vault of Whispers this deck could be modern legal.

you got to many high costed cards that do nothing, don't have synergy or are straight up trash.

you dont have to read all of this... its a lot. eg: Fen Hauler (you have almost no artifacts) and you could replace it for Gurmag Angler , Steel Wall , Prakhata Club Security , Prizefighter Construct can be chump blocked and dies to anything, Pitiless Vizier how do you discard or cicle cards?, Sengir Vampire high cmc, Phage the Untouchable the same but its actually a neat card that you could make some jank deck (thanks for the idea), Nightmare trash, Night Market Guard trash too, Extractor Demon to high costed unless you have a way to trow it on the gy, Dread Defiler the same and does nothing really, Bloodhunter Bat trash, Demon of Wailing Agonies you dont have a commander, Haunted Plate Mail to high costed and you got too many creatures to even use it, Staff of the Death Magus not usefull, Cinder Barrens and Forsaken Sanctuary whats the point??.

uff dude, from what im looking its a deck you made from with the cards you had lying around, so you want to first have an idea of the game plan you wanna go to, a discard base control or aggro or reanimator and so on. or see what card you would want to work with and make the deck around it, when you do i can help you build the deck. just make a comment or hit me up idk.

I see.

My original build of the deck involved filully milling myself, casting Haakon, Stromgald Scourge and a Gravecrawler from the yard and using those and the Vengevine that they triggered to fire up a flashbacked Dread Return that would return a Dread Defiler that could then throw giant nonsense like a Lord of Extinction from my graveyard to their head.

After a while I realized this was just a lot more fragile and took a lot more mana than just having a single card, so now I have more space to run answers to graveyard hate, so I run Exsanguinate and Moonglove Extract as wincons.

Also worth mentioning: Worm Harvest goes infinite with Phyrexian Altar and Groundskeeper if you have enough lands in the graveyard.
