Emrakul, the Aeons Torn Discussion

Yeah... I know that feeling of selling cards I shouldn't have.

Since you are crazy enough to wanna hear my suggestions, then here I come. I have to say one thing before though. A sideboard is somewhere you can put cards to switch between matches to fix your deck's weak point. So, even if have one Garruk, absolutely mainboard him. That would make the deck more consistent. Having him in the sideboard doesn't help.

Mutiny is another card that just isn't good. It's too unreliable as it needs your opponent to have at the very least two creatures and one of them needs to be strong enough to kill the other, in which case you'll kill the weaker but will still need to deal with a strong creature. Kozilek's Return isn't budget friendly. However, it's a good boardwipe that doubles if you cast a big Eldrazi, clearing the way for an attack. If you strictly want a single target removal you could use Lightning Bolt , Wild Slash , Abrade or, if want to have as few colors as possible, Reality Shift .

Same goes for Spark Harvest . Too unreliabe and sacrificing the resources you'll need to accomplish your goal doesn't seem good. You can use Dismember instead as really few creatures can survive -5/-5 and you wouldn't need a black source anymore.

Mist Intruder is just generic, and ingest isn't a really good mechanic. Run Eldrazi Skyspawner instead. It's one mana more expensive but also ramps you for one mana.

Hamletback Goliath is cute altough being nothing else. It's not bad per say, but offers nothing more than just a big body. No protection, no evasion, not even trample. Even if it becomes a 40/40 it can be blocked by a 1/1. Just as a comparison, Hamletback Goliath can be destroyed, bounced or exiled, but Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger can't be destroyed and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn has protection from an absurd amount of things while simultaneously having evasion. You're investing a lot of mana in those Eldrazi and they "pay you back" by impacting the board as soon as they come in and are rather resilient. Rather than the Goliath, you could use Emrakul's Hatcher , Beanstalk Giant , Oblivion Sower or even Drowner of Hope . Here's a more organized way to explain:

  1. Emrakul's Hatcher - Not nearly as big and has no potential to grow, but helps you "ramp". Also is a red card, so makes you have to properly adjust your manabase accordingly.

  2. Beanstalk Giant - Not as big, but can grow really big if go all in the ramp plan as it also helps you ramp by being a ramp spell.

  3. Oblivion Sower - Can be searched with From Beyond and disrupts the opponent while also stealing their lands and ramping you.

  4. Drowner of Hope - Sort of a Control(?) option. It can sacrifice you scion tokens to tap your oppoent's most troublesome creature and it's also searchable by From Beyond .

I've been writing a lot. Feel free to agree or disagree with what I said. Just because I think something would be better it doesn't it will be better or that you should like it, after all, the deck is yours.

Also, if you could change the format to Casual it would help a lot. When writing these comment, TappedOut can directly show you cards I want to suggest. However, since the deck is labeled as Unknown format, anything I try to recommend ends up being recognized as illegal.

DuTogira on Targets for Dramatic Entrance

2 weeks ago

The first question to ask (because this is modern and it’s unfortunately brutal) is: are there any green creatures that are significantly better through Dramatic Entrance than an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn / Primeval Titan would be off of Through the Breach , which gives haste AND is less color intensive.
I haven’t earnestly looked, but I doubt it. If there aren’t, Dramatic Entrance at best could make a cool brew, but almost certainly won’t break into the competitive scene.

Rorolith first of all, thank you for actually playtesting it and giving some feedback!

Its funny that you mention it, because Legion's Landing  Flip, alongside Spiritual Visit and even Devastating Summons has been on my radar for this deck.

The upside is obvious, they cost 1 mana, and thus would enable more T2 Emrakul hand combinations, at least in theory. But this comes with some baggage. One problem is, that LL and SV cost white mana, which I might have T1, but might lose again once I Ritual. The other problem is, that the cards might not carry their weight, because I only get one thing from one card, as opposed to my other token producing spells giving me 2. Out of curiosity I will playtest offscreen with +2x Spiritual Visit , as I think it has the upper hand out of all the options, because it is instant and also has the splice ability, which can become relevant with itself and Desperate Ritual netting me some card advantage. For that I'll take out -1x Mountain and -1x Dragon Fodder . If I then conclude that this setup is beneficial, I'll change it here as well.

As for Emrakul, the Aeons Torn , 2 copies would actually be a lot worse here. See, you don't want to draw this card, and adding another copy just doubles the odds of drawing a dead card. Maybe an additional copy would make sense in the SB for some matchups, but idk. This is not something I'm looking into in this stage of tweaking the deck.

What I really desperately need is a sound Sideboard Strategy.

Great idea! What happens if Emrakul, the Aeons Torn gets exiled as soon as it comes in? You need a backup, either more than one Emrakul, the Aeons Torn in the deck or the other Emrakul, or Ulamog, or Worldspine Wurm . Also Iona, Shield of Emeria is a great sideboard choice that locks down all mono colored decks. Here is an example of fantastic deck in slightly different colors but similar idea Poly'M'rakrul, but this one has access to blue which allows them to run counterspells thus not worry about removal most of time. You don't have that leisure here since you are so I would strongly recommend on back up creature. Good luck.

Don't take it down. There's hope, but the biggest problem is that there is too many moving pieces here: without having all your cards in hand Elvish Piper Morophon, the Boundless Fist of Suns Emrakul, the Aeons Torn , your deck doesn't function to the best of its ability.

Maybe just focusing the deck on one component would help?

Emrakul, the Aeons Torn predates Pioneer. You might be thinking of Emrakul, the Promised End .

prokseus on Nahiri prison help (budget)

I would like to build a fun deck based on the Nahiri, the Harbinger - Emrakul, the Aeons Torn combo. Because of my budget, I want to make it without Chalice of the Void . Is it possible to make it? I also thought about to add a blue color for counters, Temporal Mastery , Opt , ...
