Emrakul, the Aeons Torn Discussion
19 hours ago
i'm guessing you play standard since you mentioned Forerunner of the Empire, but if you play any modern, hexproof and protection are good things to know how to get around. for example, you can play a Deflecting Palm against an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, because Deflecting Palm does not target.

Yeah I was thinking if there were different janky things that could be done with Inverter of Truth or Paradigm Shift with the shell of this deck. Then I thought, wait, Eternal Scourge + Food Chain Bitter Ordeal + Sidisi, Brood Tyrant in conjunction with having Gaea's Blessing in your Graveyard is an indefinite/infinite mill combo, since your casting Sidisi "infinitely" each time you hit Gaea's Blessing it shuffles you're entire graveyard, including itself back into your library allowing you to do it to the desired amount racking up the "Gravestorm" count on Bitter Ordeal to one's desire, given you hard tutored for Bitter Ordeal, and haven't drawn Gaea's Blessing.
However you did mention the potential variance of drawing Gaea's Blessing which would slow/hinder the Bitter Ordeal combo down. If one wanted to lean more towards this combo within the shell of this deck, all you have to do is add redundancy at that point. Along with Gaea's Blessing you could also throw in the deck Kozilek, Butcher of Truth Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn to increase your probability of not drawing out the ability to reshuffle your graveyard into your library, which is obviously part of the main engine for Bitter Ordeal. I think I'm going to basically use the shell of your deck, in essence but going to use the Bitter Ordeal combo so I don't feel like I'm completely deck teching.
I feel the Bitter Ordeal combo is a bit slower, and takes a bit more time to set up. If I were to focus mostly on this combo, I would have to follow your Storm Wincon template. I think the best way to set it up is also hard tutoring for Bitter Ordeal If we don't hard tutor for Bitter Ordeal we can just aim to begin milling ourselves immediately, at this point I would only want say, Gaea's Blessing in the library with no Eldrazi's, because we hope to mill ourselves into Dread Return along with Bitter Ordeal + Eternal Witness in the graveyard, otherwise we're sitting here playing the shuffle/mill game for each time we hit Gaea's Blessing UNTIL we hit Dread Return WITH Bitter Ordeal + Eternal Witness in the graveyard bringing back Eternal to fetch Bitter.
In conclusion if I were to go Bitter Ordeal combo, the more practical way to do it would be to also tutor out Bitter putting it in hand, along with something that allows you to discard a card incase you drew into, or started with Gaea's Blessing in hand. I really want to emphasize on this combo using your deck as a shell, which would probably result in tweaking the deck with some stuff to make Bitter Ordeal the main focus. If one did not hard tutor for Bitter. I could go with Food Chain+Eternal Scourge+Sidisi+Viscera Seer+A sac outlet on board. Milling a bunch for each time we hit Gaea's Blessing, creating a lot of tokens. Then start saccing tokes to scry dig until we reach Bitter and want to draw into it. Idk definitely some playing around with the deck for an efficient Bitter Ordeal build, but I feel it's possible?

you should really look into nonbasic lands. i'm guessin you're new to the game, so it might not be a good idea to dive straight into modern. modern is a format where an Inkmoth Nexus can deal 10 infect damage turn 3, or someone can cast Through the Breach and put an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn into play turn 4. i've played against people who cast Empty the Warrens on turn 2 for 10 goblin tokens. players can Madcap Experiment into Platinum Emperion and won't take damage from the Madcap Experiment, or cast Karn Liberated turn 3 and then Ugin, the Spirit Dragon turn 4.

Thanks for the suggestions! I have been interested in B/U mill for a while but never really played it. I completely agree with the too high land count, just didn't know what else to add.
I would like to make this deck good but probably not competitive level of good. I only have one guy that I play often that tries to build competitive decks even for just our "kitchen table" group. My biggest concern is to have an answer for the Emrakul, the Aeons Torn Modern deck he is building. But aside from that, I think pretty casual and fun will work for me. Cards like Sphinx's Tutelage are great but are already utilized by another in our group, and I hate copying lol.
Thanks for the help!

Looking at my Pure Steel Storm for ideas.
A singleton Noxious Revival is something you can fetch out and use to get something back that Wheel might have missed or give your opponent a bad top deck.
If you're going the infinite Manamorphose route i feel like having one Grapeshot gives you an easy out to make a semi-convoluted combo, simple, and Simian Spirit Guide can speed the deck up. If you start the combo with Desperate Ritual then cast a Manamorphose from hand, can't that just give infinite mana by chaining them after that? then Emrakul, the Aeons Torn would be a good finisher and could be way to keep your yard in your deck, while making the Nahiri, the Harbinger maindeckable.
I don't see what Flayer Husk or Batterskull are really doing in the deck besides being value cards, and combo decks with value cards usually cause inconsistency issues.

Here's a link to a deck to look into
I have honestly and seriously considered moving to mono-blue eldrazi. I have a special place for the artifact version though. I've been playing it for years.
Cards to consider: Conduit of Ruin, Sanctum of Ugin, Karn Liberated, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Eldrazi Mimic, Drowner of Hope, Elder Deep-Fiend, and of course the Titans. Especially Emrakul, the Aeons Torn.
Obviously you could do a subtheme of scions which may include other cards. I had a friend who had this deck in paper form and the deck was very consistent. I don't remember his 75, but if you playtest and refine this deck it can be very good.
