Emrakul, the Promised End Discussion

It's nice to actually see someone who uses Kozilek, the Great Distortion in an Aetherworks Marvel deck. Just because it's not as good as Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger or Emrakul, the Promised End doesn't mean it's not good at all and not a threat on turn four.

Haimi1001 that is exacly what this is - I used a shell from my burn deck after removing creatures :) sadly Act of Aggression will not work on neither Emrakul, the Aeons Torn or Emrakul, the Promised End.

Okay! Thing in the Ice  Flip we can work with. With Thing, you'll want a lot of cheap instants (and sorceries, if you must) to achieve a flip as fast as possible, then smash face for the win.

First, I'd suggest Spell Pierce, Dispel, Ephemeral Shields, and/or Turn Aside, all of which will be vital for protecting Thing from opposing removal. Then, I'd use Temur Battle Rage or Assault Strobe as a win condition (after Thing is flipped), since your opponent will likely already be within killing range from their shocks and fetches. Cantrips like Niveous Wisps, Ponder, etc will be pretty good to you, as will multiple-use spells like Faithless Looting, Think Twice, and so forth. If I were you, I actually might be tempted to take out all W except just a splash, if Thing is your main win con. Although I guess at this point, your deck becomes aggro...

If you care about the control part of things, I'd trade your Ulamog for Emrakul, the Promised End (she's better with Nahiri) and dial up the W element of the deck, leaving R just as a splash for Nahiri and Helix. Azorius Charm, Failure / Comply, Hindering Light, Silence, Angelsong, Censor, will all be crucial in extending the game long enough to swing in multiple times with Thing and maybe even get Nahiri to ult.

Either way, I suggest only splashing your third color -- 4-6 spells of that color max. Then, I suggest you build your land base with all basics except for 4 Evolving Wilds and 4 of the tapland of your 2 primary colors (for RU, Izzet Guildgate or the like). Split the basics evenly between all remaining colors.

Hope that helps! Despite what some other posters seem to think, I strongly believe you'll be able to build a fun and effective 3-color deck on a budget, especially if your goal is casual fun. However, I do think that you might be frustrated if you have a mana-intensive deck on a shoestring budget, which is why I so strongly recommend just splashing one of your 3 colors. Mention me on your decklist once you get some cards smashed together -- even if it's not pretty, I'll do my best to help you out! Best of luck.

Wyrmweird and Argeaux,
I know the Gods didn't get any airtime, but Patrick Dickmann's Jund Gods (7-2-1 at PT AKH) did all right. And frankly, compared to some of the marquee cards from recent sets (cough, Emrakul, the Promised End, cough), I'm OK with them not totally being totally OP :-)

Against a meta full of Marvel decks, I recommend Alex Stok's BW Control (7-3 at PT AKH). It earned a 5-0 record vs. Marvel last weekend.

Yeah, but Mardu will still be a thing for sure. Two copies made 8-2 and 11 went 7-3, so not making Top 8 is more about the pilots needing to practice Draft than the deck suddenly being bad. Plus a 50% overall PT win rate -- especially when everyone is gunning against you -- is still pretty great.

So lets say I use Aetherworks Marvel on my opponents end step. I hit Emrakul, the Promised End. Will I now get my turn and can attack with Emrakul + after my turn get control of my opponents next turn?

Demonic Tutor, Worldly Tutor, and Vampiric Tutor would all be solid additions if you can find them. Emrakul, the Promised End is a little combo with From Beyond, along with any of the other Big Eldrazi.
