Emrakul, the Promised End Discussion
4 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.
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.

Cast triggers on these cards are incredibly strong but I am intentionally giving that up for being able to have them in play as early as turn 4. Once in play my opponent has about 3 turns or less to deal with them or they lose. ulamog, the ceasless hunger alone eats their library and removes the answers they seek, Emrakul, the Promised End is immune to most removal and deals lethal damage in 2 hits, and Void Winnower can flat out lock my opponent down. All 3 nearly always cause my opponent to scoop. The greatwurm is a cool idea but the higher stats with less ability isn’t gonna get me a win most of the time. If it had trample I would be a lot more interested.

Interesting deck. Might there be better cards than Emrakul, the Promised End to polymorph into? Not getting the cast trigger seems pretty important, and there are certainly bigger bodies available if that’s all it’s being run for. Just curious as to the thought process here, deck is pretty cool.

You will never got to 15 mana to cast Emmy that's why I said take it out. Emrakul, the Promised End is probably a better option if you want a huge creature. But that's probably not even worth it. Tron is the main ramp deck in mtg and the curves in those decks top out with Ugin, the Spirit Dragon

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.

I want to build an Eldrazi tribal EDH deck with Emrakul, the Promised End as the commander. Are the devoid Eldrazi from the Battle for Zendikar block allowed to be used in that deck since the devoid ability makes them colorless?

grievances So Ugin's Nexus has a few things going for it.
A lot of high powered blue decks play extra turns, so it's nice to have a little disruptive presence here, but most of the time i'll take the extra turn myself.
Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre can target it and follow up with Annihilator.
Karn, the Great Creator can turn it into a creature and make it indefinitely more scary.
Oblivion Stone wipes it and allows you to take a full turn to rebuild.
Have a Mirage Mirror copy it so the legendary rule can do the job.
Maybe even a lategame Blast Zone will do the trick.
But most of the times it dies to certain board wipes like a Vandalblast or so.
Also interesting to know: If you cast Emrakul, the Promised End, you can take the other player's turn, but it prohibits his/her extra one. So technically you stole their turn completely. Crazy powerful.
And: You can always get it back with Karn, the Great Creator's -2. Just feels great to pull that off. :D
Is it the best card in this deck? It sure isn't, but its weirdness has resulted in so many powerful plays that people also didn't see coming. So in closing: Good mid-game insurance policy while likely ending up giving you an extra turn at some point.
