Emrakul, the Aeons Torn Discussion

ToolmasterOfBrainerd on Modern shouldnt have a ban ...

With all due respect, several of those analyses are almost certainly wrong.

Blazing Shoal would see no 1-of play. It's good as a 4-of because of blazing infect. It's not good outside of that deck.

Eye of Ugin is the one example of when a restricted list would be good for the format. Tron ran eye as a 1-of in the days of yore. In a long game they have enough land tutors to find it after they've assembled Tron and then use it to tutor Wurmcoil Engine every other turn or Emrakul, the Aeons Torn when they have enough mana and just win. Tron lost this piece of tech when it got banned, and nowadays they do something similar with Sanctum of Ugin , but it's not as good. I said this card restricted would be good, because it would have been a banning which hurt eldrazi without hurting another deck that wasn't abusing it. Tron is doing fine without eye, but collateral damage with the banlist does exist.

Hypergenesis is way too slow outside of its dedicated combo deck. The deck would exist and be super glass cannon and stupid in the format.

Mental Misstep : I think literally every deck would play 1 copy this card. There's no reason not to. This card isn't situational because 1-drops are everywhere in almost every deck. And the chance of having it turn 1 is worth it.

Rite of Flame would only be played in any deck that already plays Pyretic Ritual and nowhere else. I think only storm and some Through the Breach decks play the ritual.

Second Sunrise would only be played in eggs if that deck can even function with only 1 copy. Nothing else would ever play it.

Summer Bloom was only played in Amulet Titan to make absurd amounts of mana. They'd play their 1 copy and nobody else would ever play it.

Otherwise I think your analysis was pretty good.

Going off of what PlatinumOne said about the Breach + Emrakrul combo is specifically the reason why I like the points list system over the ban system, as while the deck can turn 2 win, the amount of points would limit the deck to either play more "fair" or to commit the whole deck within the set point limit (Ex. lets say Through the Breach is 2 points and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is worth 4 points, with a limit of 10 points, this leaves the deck to run what i would assume 3 Breach's and 1 Emrakul, but also could allow for 2 breach's to run other pointed card like a Gamble that could help make the deck more consistent.

but the thing is...there really isn't enough tools to keep certain decks in check. or at least, not in any one players deck. i'll use your example of affinity again. sure theres lots of artifact removal, but how much will ever see mainboard play? and how much of your sideboard can you afford to dedicate to artifact removal, knowing there are other decks to interact with as well?

no offense man, it just doesn't seem like you've played a whole lot of modern. if you had, you'd have seen Simian Spirit Guide being used and would have known it wasn't banned. the other piece of evidence is that you just really seem to be underestimating the power of the format and the top decks in it.

do you really want someone to turn 2 Seething Song into Through the Breach into Emrakul, the Aeons Torn ?

toxicliam on Moving Forward with Eldrazi

Right now, someone in my playgroup is playing an eldrzi tribal deck that he found on tappedout with some minor changes, but it really cannot compete with any deck in our group. Moving forward, he would like to update it to have less small creatures and more/mostly big creatures or game-changing permanents that he can usethings like Planar Bridge to cheat into play. My question is, what creatures are available in U/B (including colorless) that can absolutely smash face? As well as that, what options are there that are at least reasonably priced to A) tutor up the "cheaters" and B) tutor up wincons that get cheated into play. Also keep in mind that my playgroup doesn't play with a ban list so things like Griselbrand and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn are available (but out of budget). The decklist is here

Curious enough the best red answer to a hard-cast Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is, Parallectric Feedback . Not that I think it's a viable option, but rather a funny one.

Chasmolinker In my experience 4x Cryptic Command ain't overkill (I will admit my experience from the past 2.5 mounth is quit limited).

In my thread "how to deal with Emrakul, the Aeons Torn you said my deck is to slow for modern. Do you have any cards in mind tp help with the issue?

Hello Im playing a grixis control deck, Bolas competative control and I would like some help / advise on what to sideboard to deal with Emrakul, the Aeons Torn . If my opponent tries to cast if via Through the Breach I could just counter the breach. However that only solves the problem until he/she gets enough mana to hard-cast it anyways because Through the Breach decks tend to be very rampy. The same problem comes with tron. They will eventually get enough mana to hard-cast Emrakul, the Aeons Torn because my goal is to use Jace, the Mind Sculptor , Nicol Bolas, the Arisen or Liliana, the Last Hope ultimate abilities to win, and that takes some time.

Im very greatful for any help and advice I can get. Thanks in advance! :)
