Emrakul, the Aeons Torn Discussion

Not sure what you're in Legacy for, this deck is perfectly Standard legal (I think) and is probably viable there (If your best turn one play is Mountain-Neonate or Mountain-Gorger, you won't do so well in Legacy, where a first turn might involve playing Show and Tell into Emrakul, the Aeons Torn).

In my opinion the following arguments can be made for the superiority of using enchantments:
1# Both Ragged Veins & Spiteful Shadows are on curve (t2), with Nahiri's Wrath on t3
2# If/when the opponent removes the creature that's enchanted they kill their own creature - which can be relevant against deck that play few creatures - instead of having the same removal in hand to harm our threats. Thus the enchantments act as a pseudo removal, and even in the worst case as a deterrent against blocking &attacking.
3# Ragged Veins has "flash". Thus it can be used to combo off when the opponent is tapped out.

(The Boros Reckoner may be a superior option compared to Spiteful Shadows)

I the end this deck should work very differently from skred, assault swans, and even from the various loam discard engines.

...am i the only one who thinks that Nahiri's Wrath would be so nice to play in UR breach, but there is just a better option in the deck for all the roles it could fulfill?

The lists i mentioned checking tended to play some number of Emrakul, the Aeons Torn - in my humble opinion this is certainly a wrong decision, if you need the deck to be consistent.
The problem with emrakul is that it doesn't do anything beside having a large cmc.
(As protection from being milled out shouldn't be relevant)

Playing this fatty with Through the Breach makes the combo a 3 card combo. And that is very bad.

The deck's consistency comes from the fact that it has redundancy in both pieces of the combo, while (aside from a few spells that dig for cards) the rest of the deck is made up of high cmc cards. thus it functions like a 2 card combo instead of playing like a 3 card combo deck.
Preferably by ones that are not only there due their high cost.
They either cycle, can be casted for their delve cost, or can function as removal (for a reasonable cmc).

Very cool brew +1 from me... I think Forbidden Orchard is pretty genius and I dig the heavy deck filtering capabilities... I think it can win and at very least totally blind side someone... As the deck stands idk exactly how consistent it will be/is but the concept of what you have here is pretty cheeky... I almost think Emrakul, the Aeons Torn would be good to get your yard back or just tack on 15 more damage?

I am personally not sure that Ragged Veins and Spiteful Shadows are better than Boros Reckoner. I might concede that they are better than Spitemare though. But a 3/3 body that can trade with pretty much any creature in modern is not too bad. The 3 toughness for 3 mana is kind of meh, but Lightning Bolt is not as heavily played as it used to be. It still dies to a revolted Fatal Push and of course Path to Exile -- but most things do. I think the big thing that separates Boros Reckoner from the enchantment options is that it can actually do things by itself. It is a usable card by itself and only gets better with set up; whereas those enchantments really do not do much unless you have set up.

That being said, I do like the idea. I, myself, have played a little bit with a version running for Swans of Bryn Argoll, and Nahiri, the Harbinger (along with Emrakul, the Aeons Torn as an alternate win that also combos well with Nahiri's Wrath). Pinging both Swans of Bryn Argoll and Boros Reckoner with a Pyroclasm or Volcanic Fallout to deal 4 dmg to an opposing creature, 2 dmg to all my opponent's other creatures, and then draw 2 cards is pretty nasty.

Qolorful Sorry! Really was not banking on it jumping so much when I asked for that trade, lol! I mean, I obviously thought it was a good card (or else I would not have been looking for a trade); but I agree. I do not think it is $45 good. I do not even play standard. I was looking to play it in modern... and I have put them to good use so far! Got a baby 4/4 Emrakul, the Aeons Torn playing vs tron. So that was cute! lol.
