Emrakul, the Aeons Torn occurrence in decks from the last year

Emrakul, the Aeons Torn Discussion

cak01vej on Card creation challenge

5 days ago

Bela Ged Mimicry

Tribal Enchantment - Eldrazi Aura

Enchanted creature has "Put five cards an opponent owns from exile into that player's graveyard: Untap this creature and take an additional combat step this turn. Activate this ability only at the end of each combat step on your turn."

In Bela Ged, imitation turned from flattery, to a survival tactic, to a way of life.

Scallywallwest, it goes "infinite" (Or at least until there are no more permanents on your opponents battlefield) with Emrakul, the Aeons Torn via her Annihilator 6, or if you have some other way to keep at least five cards exiled at all times.

The problem is your stipulation that it needs to be a two-card combo, but "Don't make it super easy to go off, please."

Anyway, I hope this satisfy your challenge. Next one is: something inspired by Sen Triplets. I don't care if it's a counter, a more powerful version, the lost fourth sibling.

DeinoStinkus on Price of the Eldrazi Titans

6 days ago

I was just perusing decks today and found that Emrakul, the Promised End's price was kind of low. I said, okay, what else? All of the titans prices have dropped, as far as I can tell, all of them are under $40.

Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre

Kozilek, Butcher of Truth

Emrakul, the Aeons Torn

Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

Kozilek, the Great Distortion

Emrakul, the Promised End

Gyre has dropped from almost $50 to $32 in only a week.

Butcher has dropped a bit, from like $42 (?) to $36.

Aeons Torn has remained about the same, likely because without the audience if EDH it doesn't see the audience that the other titans enjoy.

Hunger has also dropped quite a bit, from like $45 to $39.

Distortion climbed up to $15 recently, and is now back at the price I originally bought it at ($8 something in late 2018)

Promised End has stayed about the same. It's price has lowered a little bit, but overall not too much, and certainly not as much as Gyre.

I might actually buy Gyre if this continues. Are there recent events in certain formats that might contribute to the drop? They haven't been reprinted in the past year as far as I know (the last old Eldrazi reprint was in Ultimate Masters), and I can't really see any correlation between this and the recent bannings. Any insight on the matter would be helpful.

also, if a player casts an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn with Scourge of Valkas out, they're dealing 15 less damage than if they had a Terror of the Peaks instead. It's just a way more versatile card, overall. And, I can assure you that every detail practically every card is on purpose, it isn't really fair to ask if this was a deliberate choice by WotC.

SynergyBuild on The Immortal Mr. Mittens

Sadly, even though I have no fault with that sentiment, the description says that many lists completely lack Enchantment removal, which after checking nearly none of the top decks lack it, as was my point. The other point was that the "few" that could didn't have the ability to resolve it through countermagic. One Blast Zone breaks the countermagic and doesn't care about counterspells, so assuming that the 2-4 copies in most Eldrazi Tron lists, which along Azorius Control and Jund (I thought junk was abzan, but I could be wrong?)

Checked the metagame and found that at least 62.56% (maximum 75.54%, 12.98% is considered "other" and I didn't bother looking into it) could resolve some amount of Enchantment removal against this deck relatively easily. Assuming it couldn't win without the lock (no walkers, sweepers, efficient removal for creatures, efficent wincons, etc.), and most of the time it either wouldn't hit the lock, wouldn't easily handle interaction (little backup if it is interacted with), or not resolve it (over half the less than 40% of the metagame it "preys" upon, with minimal enchantment interaction have strong discard or countermagic bases, like Storm, Red-Black Discard-Burn, a popular Lurrus build showing results, etc. that still beat the combo) and so an estimated 30% winrate game 1 winrate, and 12% winrate for the deck overall, as best of 3 exponentially increase the chances of sided in interaction, that this deck just doesn't handle.

Personally, making the additions of Supreme Verdict, Path to Exile, Celestial Colonnade replacing Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. Wall of Omens fits well in slowing down other decks aggro, while digging for the combo, etc. Even more cantrips could help, but splashing green for a big Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath could be both a good value piece, wincon, and way to survive while digging for the combo!

Otherwise I don't see Hex Parasite being great, as you don't have black mana, and while it answers opposing walkers it just doesn't synergize with the list much when you have to pay life to "gain life" or more accurately "prevent damage", additionally because you can't pay life you don't have (you can't pay life into negative numbers with a Phyrexian Unlife in play even) it just doesn't do a lot later on when a good walker would beat this list.

I honestly don't get Kefnet, but if you do have a reason for it I could be swayed, it's a grindy value engine, and fits with some themes, but just doesn't seem strong with the base of cards I see. I hope my advice helps, I love the list and want it to work!

Not too familiar with the lore myself, but I think Progenitus, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Nicol Bolas deserve a mention; they could be contenders. Also, Storm Crow.

defamagraphy1 Haste with mono green is hard to find though only thing that really comes to mind isn't legal in modern Concordant Crossroads. However,Blightsteel Colossus could be a bit of fun and cheaper (CMC wise at least lol) compared to Emrakul, the Aeons Torn

DeinoStinkus on Double Masters Speculation

4 weeks ago

We've seen a reprint of the original three Eldrazi titans (Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn) a ridiculous number of times, so what about the modern three (Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Kozilek, the Great Distortion, and Emrakul, the Promised End)? Also would like original Dragonlords reprinted.

DeinoStinkus on UGIN CAN'T BE TRUSTED!!!

1 month ago

Everyone knows Ugin. He's a protagonist Dragon, the twin brother of Nicol Bolas, and got a sweet reprint in Core 2021. But he can't be trusted, and nothing is what it seems...

Let's begin with Rise of the Eldrazi, where we learn that Sorin, Nahiri, and Ugin had worked together to imprison the three Eldrazi titans, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. These three beings escape in Rise of the Eldrazi. So it seems that Ugin is against the Eldrazi. But no, hold up a second. Why does practically every single card printed with Ugin's name ASSIST ELDRAZI? Eye of Ugin, Ugin, the Ineffable, and our M21 Ugjn, the Spirit Dragon are all staples in Eldrazi decks. Now, one could pin this down to coincidence or simply just the cards aligning in that way. But as we learn later, there are some suspicious things going on with Ugin...

In Battle for Zendikar, we learn that Ugin does not want the Gatewatch to kill the titans Ulamog and Kozilek, as he suspects they are part of the natural order of the universe. Seems legit until you realize that every major villain sees itself as a natural part of the universe or an inevitable force. Thanos has that same mentality. The Phyrexians do as well.

Later, in War of the Spark, Nicol Bolas routinely refers to himself as "we". The same occurs to Chandra when she steps atop The Immortal Sun atop New Prahv. Why "we"? Perhaps for Chandra it was a communication with the corruption of the Sun, but I believe that the Sun was in some way built as a conduit for Emrakul's petulent whispers. At the end of the War of the Spark, Ugin displays some frightening tendencies as he gloats to his brother Bolas and psychologically torments him. Nicol Bolas appears diminutive next to his brother. Ugin does not normally behave this way. Honestly, he acts like the cinematic Albus Dumbledore most of the time.

The last creepy part is that Bolas, a dragon supposedly in possession of a mastermind's brain, could not see the gaping holes in his own plan. Perhaps the Spirit Gem had something to do with that. Nicol Bolas had been smart enough before the Elder Dragon War to destroy his siblings but could not destroy a few tiny planeswalkers with the power of a god on a plane where there was no equal to his might! And who is the Spirit Gem connected to? Why, no other than Ugin himself.

In War of the Spark Forsaken (ugh), Ugin says to Liliana that the Spirit Gen will help her find a better her. Um... why is Ugin now taking a sudden interest in Liliana's personal life? I have the feeling that the Spirit Gem is going to cause more harm than good.

And then there's The Ozolith. An unknown planeswalker had tampered with the Ozolith, causing it to emit mind-control pulses that made the monsters of Ikoria attack the forces of Drannith. But what if it wasn't a planeswalker? What if it was Emrakul? Or maybe it was Ugin. I mean, the sudden mutation seems to fall in line with what Emrakul does, see Howling Chorus.

Just some fun speculation, let me know what you think.
