Eldrazi Temple Discussion
2 weeks ago
so you need about 4-6 more lands in the deck in my opinion if your plan is to stall until you can hardcast an eldrazi. I've play-tested a couple games and not once did the deck get more than five lands, even when it went on to t10. thats 2 turns to find one land so you have to stall until t22 for ulamog and t30 for emmy at that rate. I suggest adding Eldrazi Temples since the only thing you're going to be spending more than 4 mana on is eldrazi's.

I see that they are reprinting the eldrazi Titans, as well as now Eldrazi Conscription and All Is Dust, so I expect that we will see this continue with reprints of Eye of Ugin and or Eldrazi Temple. While they are at it I hope to see a reprint of the tron lands and maybe Expedition Map, Chromatic Star (this one is just a bit expensive tbh), and Chromatic Sphere (then this one I simply am not a fan of the art much). I had a friend as part of a trade buy me a playset of the lands and now I have a bunch of Urza's Tower and the like with differing art lol.
Im quite pleased with all the reprints that I see I will be needing to pick up for my Meren edh deck so far.

Hi there! Idk if you still care about this deck, since it looks like no changes have been made since you made it, but if you're still looking for advice I've got a few pointers.
First off, ignore that other guy. He obviously hasn't heard of Eldrazi tron, and with Eldrazi Temple in the deck, you don't need to find tron as fast as green decks need to. In fact, it's possible to still win without tron, due to the efficiency of creatures in the deck and the fairly low mana curve.
Secondly, I think it would be wise to add at least one more copy of Mind Stone (replacing your third copy of Oblivion Sower). While Oblivion Sower is one of my favorite Eldrazi to play, being able to still ramp without tron is important, and Mind Stone can even draw you a card when you need one.
And the third thing I have to say is that if you really want to invest in a deck like this, there are plenty of helpful articles online to show what the pros put in their decks, and just general ways to learn more about mtg. I found "Level One: The Full Course" to be a helpful article in learning to step up my game personally, yet I've also read deck-specific articles (Level 1 Modern, on Channel Fireball) to learn how to best use my own deck.

Erwin_Rommel_The_Planeswalker I am unsure if you read my whole comment, if you do so and answer the general questions, I imagine that the deck can be built up with some ease.
Thought-Knot Seer, Reality Smasher, Eldrazi Mimic, etc. are good for normal colorless eldrazi tribal with Eldrazi Temples, allowing for colorless as your whole deck fixes all mana problems most of the time.

Ditch Urza's Factory - its not something you want to do with eldrazi.
If you want to play black eldrazi you can take advantage of the fact that Heartless Summoning, is a harder to destroy modern legal version of the banned Eye of Ugin. If you go black you can have the acceleration of the eldrazi decks before the ban. I would advocate running 4x Eldrazi Temple alongside it, and some Vesuva for shits and giggles.
In general look up no banlist eldrazi and start from there.
REgarding your list i would place Platinum Angel into the sideboard as fast as i can, it can be good in certain linear matchups, when the opponent doesn't expects its, but as of now i think there are literally no decks that lack the answers for it - and you have nothing to protect it. On the other hand all those discard spells should be in the mainboard - if nothing else they will let you know what you need to sideboard against in game 2...

Well, this isn't a standard deck, so if you change the format to Modern, it should work. Casual, Legacy, and Vintage are also formats this deck is legal in. I can explain format legality further if you want.
I need to know a few things before I go over how to improve the deck. Really, the list is an eldrazi-tribal list, with a high-costed top end, and a strange low-end.
The first thing I need to know is exactly what the deck's purpose is. Do you want to cast giant eldrazi? Do you want to sacrifice a bunch of little tokens?
For example, the Tron lands, Urza's Power Plant, Urza's Tower, and Urza's Mine make enough mana to consistently cast eldrazi, and with Expedition Map to fetch them out, and Eldrazi Temple for additional mana, you can really improve the layout of the deck, and probably the biggest downside is the need to cut a lot of the colored portion of your deck.
If you like sacrificing little guys, Blisterpod for example, maybe drop the top end of your mana curve, and run Blood Artist/Zulaport Cutthroat along with running cards like Viscera Seer to get a lot of value from sacrificing creatures, digging for more of them, dealing damage to your opponents, and gaining life. with a card like Fecundity you could even draw your deck, and be making mana at the same time to cast it, scrying along the way, draining your opponent to their death.
You could also move to a processor-exile build, where you try to exile cards from your opponent's deck, hand, graveyard, and battlefield, just to regain value from them, with cards like Blight Herder or Wasteland Strangler as good processors, and cards like Thought-Knot Seer and Oblivion Ring/Surgical Extraction/Relic of Progenitus, etc. for exile value.
Currently the list is split between the green-ramp-into-eldrazi deck and the black-value-oriented-eldrazi deck, neither of which are particularly good in Modern, where they are legal. I would recommend if you decide to stay this route to run Doom Blade or Go for the Throat at least over Grisly Salvage and fix the mana-base up with some dual lands like Hissing Quagmires on a budget.
The other things I need to know to help include:
How much money are you willing to spend on this deck?
What format is this deck going to be in?
What cards do you own that could fit into the strategy that aren't currently in the deck?
Thanks for contacting me! I am happy to help!

So, I think that it is an OK card to run in the sideboard. It's draw back is pretty clear, in theory your opponent gets to draw cards which is almost never a good thing, however it does have a strong effect. It's actually better in your example naming something not in hand (unless it's THAT scary).
Example, playing against a storm player that tapped out for Baral, Chief of Compliance/Goblin Electromancer. You may have already taken something out of their hand, but you know one of their main win cons is going to be Grapeshot, and you know that Past in Flames is also exceptionally important to their game plan. You'd want to name one of those since other Rituals aren't going to hurt you, and that's just better than surgical, right?
It can also name lands, so get rid of the last tron piece that your opponent needs and use your Thoughtseize on their actual threat (or if they already have tron just name Karn or Ugin). You can also name Eldrazi Temple if you know they're on nonsense still.
The card is very flexible and quite strong, the issue is they MIGHT draw cards and it's a little slow... I think it's perfectly fine though. I picked up 2 for myself on release, but I have yet to play them.
