Emrakul, the Aeons Torn Discussion

wallisface on Well, I win turn 2.

Why bother with all the hydras? Feels like you could just run Tooth and Nail for an instant-win combo like Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Xenagos, God of Revels . That’d also free up some slots to get some more considtancy going in the deck too

PlatinumOne on Is this card good enough?

with the amount of effort you're putting into that vanilla beater, it'd be easier and more effective to just Through the Breach into Emrakul, the Aeons Torn .

I think that Polymorph has potential, I feel the biggest issue is how you're enabling it. On their own, the token makers aren't very good, so I propose using man lands (i.e. Mutavault and Faerie Conclave ). This would allow you to cut green and place the combo in a UR control shell. This does slow it down, but allows you to play a grindier game with less dead pieces like Sprout .

I threw together a basic list so you could see what I was talking about:

Deck List

The question this change ultimately raises is if this Polymorph combo is better than Through the Breach + Emrakul, the Aeons Torn . Let me know what you think :)

So just so you know, you could get a t3 Emrakul using Elvish Piper

T1: Forest , Arbor Elf

T2: Forest , Utopia Sprawl . Tap, untapped w/ Arbor Elf , tap for 4, putting down an Elvish Piper

T3: Cheat out Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and proceed to win the game.

Deck talk now. I would drop the Phantasmal Image . Anything you would copy could easily win the game on its own, and ElvishPiper rulings state that the card MUSR be in your HAND, which makes Phantasmal Image useless when you could be hitting an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn instead. I'd add 2 copies of Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and 1 more copy of whatever threat you favor most after that.

I would also look at Pact of Negation instead of Mana Leak , just because with the past of this deck, I'd imagine thst you don't often have any mana open for very long.

Non-Linear on Eldrazi TRON

Your deck is trying to do too much at the same time, Skysovereign, Consul Flagship and Ratchet Bomb are emblematic of this. You only have one of each and they have spot removal (I think). You would be much better with other TRON cards instead of one set of Basilisk Collar .

Vorrac Battlehorns , Chariot of Victory , Darksteel Plate , Lightning Greaves , Grafted Exoskeleton , Inquisitor's Flail , Haunted Cloak

You also need more Eldrazi to TRON. Kozelik is a waste to tron, any Ulamog or Emrakul, the Aeons Torn would do you better

And Walking Ballista is not that good here, you do not have the super ramp mana base to justify its XX cost.

Split-second43 on Why don't you play 2 decks?

You mentioned earlier that you think that progenitus is better than Emrakul, the Aeons Torn but I just don't think that that is the case, Emrakul has protection from colored spells, which blanks half the cards you mentioned, it gives you an extra turn, has better stats, and it has annihilator six. Emrakul is waaayyy better than Progenitus no question about it.

Also, t1 Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is more possible in vintage now.

t1: Swamp , Dark Ritual , Dark Ritual , Black Lotus , Lotus Petal , Demonic Tutor for Citadel, Vampiric Tutor for Emrakul, the Aeons Torn , cast Citadel, cast emmy from the top.

Also, if you want to be more stylish:

t1: Underground Sea , Lion's Eye Diamond , Dark Ritual , Lotus Petal .

Cast Yawgmoth's Will from hand, responding with cracking LED for BBB, discarding Imperial Seal and citadel

Recast everything, saccing for mana

Cast Imperial Seal for Emrakul, the Aeons Torn , and cast citadel, then cast Emmy

StopShot on Why isn't EDH's The Gitrog ...

4 weeks ago

For those who are not familiar with this combo it goes something like this: (Otherwise skip to the second paragraph if you know how this works.)

All you need is The Gitrog Monster and a card like Noose Constrictor on the battlefield with the card Dakmor Salvage in hand. (Note: it doesn't need to be Noose Constrictor as Lotleth Troll , Olivia's Dragoon , Oblivion Crown , or any other free discard outlet will work for this.) By discarding Dakmor Salvage to the Noose Constrictor , The Gitrog Monster will trigger allowing you to draw a card for having a land enter your graveyard, however; you can then replace that draw trigger with the same Dakmor Salvage you discarded to dredge it back into your hand. Essentially through continuous dredges you'll put more lands into your graveyard from your library allowing you to draw extra cards into your hand. In your deck you'll also have either an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn , Kozilek, Butcher of Truth , Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , or Gaea's Blessing to eventually mill into your graveyard. This will allow you to shuffle your graveyard into your deck an infinitely repeatable number of times until you can draw all the cards in your deck for free due to stacking draw triggers. At this point you can probably utilize any win condition of your choice such as exiling multiple Simian Spirit Guide 's to cast Conflagrate or Lightning Storm for lethal.

While 5 mana is a big asking price for the fast Modern environment, Ad Nauseam decks still see some degree of play, whereas this strategy I don't believe sees any. The Gitrog Monster is also very resistant against a lot of common Modern removal such as Lightning Bolt , Lightning Helix , Abrupt Decay , Inquisition of Kozilek , Fatal Push , Dismember , Lightning Axe , Thing in the Ice  Flip, and unlike Ad Nauseam decks it also survives against Duress , Collective Brutality , Dispel , Negate , and Spell Pierce . Furthermore if you try to remove the discard outlet or exile their graveyard while the first draw/dredge trigger is on the stack, the Gitrog Monster player may still have the option to discard another land or activate a different draw effect ( Street Wraith , Ghost Quarter ) in response to the removal spell to put another draw/dredge trigger on the stack on top of the removal spell, effectively allowing the Gitrog player to draw out their deck with the removal still on the stack. Lastly, there a lot of tutor/search effects that can make assembling this combo more consistent such as Adventurous Impulse , Oath of Nissa , Grisly Salvage , Sylvan Scrying , Summoner's Pact , Time of Need , Traverse the Ulvenwald , and even Goryo's Vengeance can make pulling off this combo much faster as well as consistently.

Given all the card support in the Modern format why doesn't The Gitrog Monster EDH infinite combo see play in Modern or at least as much play in comparison to Ad Nauseam decks?
