Creatures you control get +1/+1 and have flying and indestructible.
At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice a creature. If you can't, sacrifice Eldrazi Monument.

OptimalGreen: Honestly? I've found Eldrazi Monument to be stronger, since Contagion Engine often makes you only 4 snakes or so, and isn't really worth it until you also manage to activate the ability (at which point you've sunk 10 mana into it).
Meanwhile Eldrazi Monument tends to be a strong source of evasion and protects from most board wipes (via indestructibility). It's also one of my only ways to protect against fliers in any meaningful sense.
(I'm not sure what you mean by saying "someone will board wipe and it'll blow up that way"; that pretty much only happens with a Toxic Deluge ).
To be fair, I'm currently working on a cEDH version of this deck, which probably will cut BOTH of those for more stax pieces, haha.

To add to my previous post I've never had great luck with Eldrazi Monument and never won because of it because it'll either get blown up or someone will board wipe and it'll blow up that way. Meanwhile Contagion Engine makes an insane amount of snakes just from being cast and than makes even more when it proliferates twice. I think it fits the overall strategy a bit more whereas Monument I feel is a bit redundant.

Mox Amber might be a little tricky, but most of the time your commander is easily cast and it will provide 1 mana. I think it maybe needs a bit of playtesting to see if it works out.
Yeah if you play enough lords then a akromas memorial is the better option. Also Coat of Arms you only want to play when you go really really wide, like krenko does. Other than that I think its too big of a risk. Better option is Eldrazi Monument I think, cause saccing a dude wont hurt you that much!

AnchorCity - I totally agree that it is great card in mono colored decks. It was in this deck for most of it's life. I recently took it out as by the time I got to six mana I wanted/needed to do other things. It almost always felt slow and I rarely took advantage of it. I also ran Gauntlet of Power for a while but there is a lot of white in my meta. Along with the fact that it's a creature heavy meta that went too. Eldrazi Monument has always felt good to get in hand and cast so that one will stay. My cmc for the deck is fairly low and I already run a fair amount of ramp so for the time being Caged Sun will be in the sideboard. Thank you for the suggestion though!

Asceticism , Eldrazi Monument , Moldgraf Monstrosity , Stromgald Cabal , Spearbreaker Behemoth , Mikaeus, the Unhallowed , and Cauldron of Souls are probably your best options for wrath protection. You can always take them away with Deceiver Exarch , Pilfering Imp , Cabal Interrogator , Disciple of Phenax , or Mind Slash .

Hi! Some ideas. Mana curve is low so you don't need 24 lands. 20-22 is enough. It depends on your budget but if you want to make your deck more reliable you should take a look at Cavern of Souls and Aether Vial . Your creatures need protection so Brave the Elements would be a nice idea. Path to Exile is your removal (4 copies strongly recommended). A couple of enchantments to boost your creatures: Honor of the Pure and Radiant Destiny . Creatures: 4x Hanweir Militia Captain Flip - transforms fast, grows fast, helps to transform Westvale Abbey Flip. Metallic Mimic - cheap and useful. Eldrazi Monument - finisher. Sideboard: Grafdigger's Cage , and Ashes of the Abhorrent , Rest in Peace , Relic of Progenitus (graveyard hate). Good luck!
