Eldrazi Monument Discussion

Hey man! Welcome to magic. I have a few suggestions... feel free to ignore any/all of them.

  1. Dorks are one mana creatures that tap for mana. A lot of the time people don't like them, because before you play with them you don't realize how absurdly powerful they are; people are wrong. I highly suggest running at least a handful of these guys, like Llanowar Elves, Elves of Deep Shadow, Birds of Paradise, Deathrite Shaman, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic... In general, ramping turn one is REALLY strong, since it lets you play a turn ahead of everyone else. Though they aren't one mana, you could also consider some cards like Priest of Titania or (if you're rich) Bloom Tender, which are also pretty strong.

  2. Slate of Ancestry is an interesting card to consider. You're running a lot of creatures, so I think in general using Slate of Ancestry will be card-positive for you. Note also that if you discard a creature card with it, Meren of Clan Nel Toth can just get it back for you.

  3. Plaguecrafter: This guy is messed up, and he gets you an experience counter from sac-ing himself. Also, once you're at 3 exp, you can just keep recurring him.

  4. Abrupt Decay/Assassin's Trophy: Personally, I like Abrupt Decay more since I play in a meta with a lot of counterspells and low-to-the-ground decks, but both are good. Being able to kill any card type is generally pretty powerful.

  5. Casualties of War/Windgrace's Judgment: Like (4), these can kill anything. I am preferential to Windgrace's Judgment because it's an instant, but again, both are powerful cards.

  6. Nature's Claim is a really efficient piece of spot removal for things like Rest in Peace, Grafdigger's Cage or Leyline of the Void. I suggest running it.

  7. If you're in a counter-heavy meta, Veil of Summer is an absurd card.

  8. Finally, running Ancient Tomb is worth considering. It's pricy, but the price is lower these days than it has been in a while; the ramp it offers is really, really good.

Cards I'd consider cutting:

Eldrazi Monument: Your experience may be different from mine, but I feel like this card is probably a win-more type thing in that it's only really good if you're already winning the game. You're probably better off just running card draw by something like Phyrexian Arena or Slate of Ancestry.

A few lands: If you run the dorks mentioned in (1), generally people don't play more than 33 lands.

Butcher of Malakir: The effect is good, but you already have Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos. I think the third piece of redundancy is probably too much.

Black Sun's Zenith: Like Butcher of Malakir, I think you have plenty of ways to make your opponents lose creatures already. You're probably better off running more universal removal, like Windgrace's Judgment.

Algae Gharial, Flesh Carver, Scavenger Drake: While these aren't bad, you can probably do better. I think overall they don't have enough punch to end up in a final decklist.

Also, since you're a new player, I'd like to point out edhrec.com is an excellent resource I use a lot. You should check it out if you haven't already.

Good luck!

FunkiestBunch and OptimalGreen: Yeah, this set didn't give me much for Hapatra :( These days, the only new things that get added here are powerful draw sources, tutors, and (in the right block) -1 counter sources. With that said, Nylea's Intervention was an upgrade over Sylvan Scrying as a way to tutor Gaea's Cradle (since it can potentially grab me one or two other utility lands, or deal with fliers in a pinch).

Profet93: I've only cast Nylea's Intervention as a tutor so far, but it's actually been good so far. I'm happy with the swap.

Regarding Contamination, I've... considered it forever. I don't run many artifacts, but in theory my mana dorks should let me still have access to green. The bigger issue is that this deck is primarily green, especially in its wincons -- I have trouble winning with only black, and it cuts off my biggest mana generator (Gaea's Cradle). Though amusingly, it would make Cradle tap for B even when I control no creatures XD

I've considered Liliana, Dreadhorde General for a while. I love her as a card, and her ult is backbreaking, but Eldrazi Monument has proven to be pretty great. It permits an infinite combo with Yawgmoth, and makes me dodge most board wipes (ie, the easiest way to shut me down). Plus it's one of my three major ways to deal with fliers, and it's also one of my all-time favorite cards. Driven / Despair continues to be a disappointment every time I slot it back in, because of its one-shot nature. I just never seem to get it at the right time to really profit, even though on paper it looks amazing.

I'm running a good amount of interaction here -- I'm running 13 cards that I would consider to be a form of interaction, of which 9 are instant speed removal or protection. I'd never turn down more, of course, but what other interaction are you thinking?

How has nylea's intervention been for you, is it mostly used as a tutor or flying killer? I remember you said you have had issues with fliers so I'm curious how it's been playing out so far.

Why not just add a Contamination which is almost always relevant, can be used as blue counterbait, and more? Is it due to the anti-synergy with cradle?

If not contamination due to the anti-synergy, why not driven/despair or Lili General?

How has Eldrazi Monument been for you? Seems kind of win-more ish as it only helps you when you have established a board presence (which to be fair, isn't hard at all in your deck). It is 5 mana though and I feel adding interaction or more card draw might be more beneficial? Unless Yawgmoth is all the interaction you need

Friend, what do you think of changing Soul of Innistrad for Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, Finale of Eternity for Thrilling Encore, and Profane Command for Akroma's Memorial/Eldrazi Monument? I'm very interested in making a rat tribal Commander and I think i'm going for this recipe of yours, with the alterations i'm mentioning.
