Eldrazi Monument Discussion

There are 6 cards that each let you directly convert mana into creature tokens at a 1=1 ratio.
Any one of these cards with your commander, and you can make as many tokens as you have mana, turn after turn after turn. I would strongly suggest running all six, as that maximizes the chances of having one in your opening hand, and of drawing a replacement if one should meet an untimely end.
Any one of the above-mentioned "Six Keys" will go infinite with your Ashnod's Altar, but if you want to pursue having them go infinite I would recommend also adding an Earthcraft. It is fantastic mana ramp by itself, similar to your Cryptolith Rite, but allowing you to tap creatures the turn they come into play, thus giving you your mana sooner, and enabling infinite combos.
Geralf's Messenger deals infinite loss of life when combined with your altar and your commander, and can otherwise be exploited as a token generator.
Since you run Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, you could always add in a Triskelion for an infinite damage combo that does not rely upon your commander. Slotting in Tooth and Nail to fetch them out together makes for a nice single card wincon. (Triskelion would slot in nicely for Walking Ballista maybe)
Sacrifice effects are amazing in this deck, and a Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact can give you control of the game. The one I would really recommend, however, is Martyr's Bond, as it bring retribution for any permanent of yours that is destroyed, while still working as a field wipe as you sac creatures.
Deathreap Ritual and Smothering Abomination lets you receive good card draw when you sacrifice tokens, and Eldrazi Monument give all your creatures Flying, Indestructible, and +1/+1, at the cost of 1 token per turn.

andylkell There are three infinite combos in the deck Blowfly Infestation + Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons gives infinite ETBs, infinite counter placement, and infinite death triggers. With this combo working, Nest of Scarabs gives infinite creatures, Blood Artist/Zulaport Cutthroat gives infinite life loss
It's also a token deck so Eldrazi Monument or Triumph of the Hordes as can work as wincons! Yeah I would like to add a mikaeus but im reluctant as I have a mikaeus edh, yet I don't want to take it out of there or buy another one. And actually from some playtesting using Crumbling Ashes i've noticed that it actually doesn't do too much work generally as it's only one kill per on my upkeep nonetheless, it can work definetely and i'll give it some more playtesting! Thanks a ton!

Eldrazi Monument fits the theme, but not the two others. I know those are pretty good in commander, giving all your team evasion and other buffs is pretty insane, but I still want to stay as close to the flavor as I can.
Thank you for the input!

This looks fun, love the idea of using the partner commanders.
I have a tribal eldrazi deck Arcades Sabboth Eldrazi Lord that is Bant colors
The only cards that I would suggest are Eldrazi Monument, Akroma's Memorial and Levitation to deal with fliers.

Been looking through, and this is a very strong build. You have the key elements, and the rest of it differs enough that I can't offer too much constructive criticism without running against it 1v1 a few times.
It definitely seems to favor a hard win, swinging out, often a couple of times, for victory. Though it does have the ability to pump out infinite tokens and win with one massive swing.
You seem to largely ignore the death potential of the deck, excluding sacrifice and graveyard triggers in favor of planeswalkers and focusing on growing your ranks. This is likely a deliberate focus, and I would have to play against it a few times to see how well it works out. If you find that you do often sacrifice or are in a position to sacrifice creatures, cards like Martyr's Bond, Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Smothering Abomination, Deathreap Ritual, and Skullclamp would do you well, but those are only considerations if that's a direction you want to take the deck.
A couple of generally good cards you may look into here are Eldrazi Monument, since +1/+1, flying, and indestructible is very strong in a token army, with its cost easily offset by your creature production, and Chord of Calling, an instant speed tutor that can be cast with your tokens.
The only two cards I would say you should add would be Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, as he allows you to exploit most of your non-token creatures, and Geralf's Messenger, since he is an instant win with Ashnod's Altar and your commander.

Ratta Tat Tat Tat. Dont forget Pack Rat!
Swarmyard seems perfect too.
Some more tribal/creature pump:

Potential Cuts (In my opinion):
Prototype Portal Confused on why this is here. Rhystic Tutor Will almost always be countered in multiplayer. Geth's Verdict Better options for targeted removal Murder Howling Mine Black doesnt want to help everyone. Phyrexian Arena FTW.
