Emrakul, the Promised End Discussion

btw if Emrakul, the Promised End "sucked" she wouldnt be $15 or have been banned from standard.

if the opponent didnt get an extra turn after the one you took control of, it'd be even more powerful than simply taking an extra turn yourself, which is already insanely powerful. think of how you would feel if an opponent cast Emrakul, the Promised End, then took control of your turn, then got another turn of their own. thats basically 3 turns in a row since you can make the opponent cripple themselves with their own resources. letting the opponent have an extra turn after the one you take control of isn't "generous", its necessary.

defwalter_white, my beef with Emrakul, the Promised End is that she's such a nerfed version of the original Emrakul, the Aeons Torn that she doesn't even seem worth it anymore. Personal beef aside, I don't like the mechanic that gives my opponent another turn after I take their turn. That's far too generous, in my opinion. If I wanted to use their turn effectively against them without a chance of reprieve I'd just go the Mindslaver route.
You make a good point about indestructible lands. I should probably add in as many as I am able to. Those are good suggestions, thanks for those!

defwalter_white, the Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots are in the deck to protect Jhoira of the Ghitu, since she's a target as soon as she hits the field. I guess it'd help if I threw a Laboratory Maniac in the fray to assist with the Enter the Infinite card. I figured that if I have my entire library in my hand, that I'd be able to come up with something to close the game out before I drew my final card. Hasn't come up in a game yet.
I try to avoid tutoring in many of my decks. Tutoring removes a lot of the variety, and with it, some of the challenge of piloting a deck. I mean, I could throw the ol' Isochron Scepter and Mystical Tutor combo in there and tutor up every spell I could want, but that kills a lot of the variability of the deck.
As for the Eldrazi, not sure if you just missed them or what, but they are definitely in the deck. I've got all of the good legendary ones in there, and a fair amount of non-legendary ones too. I think the only legendary one I'm missing is Emrakul, the Promised End, and that's because she sucks.
Mystic Remora and Rhystic Study are indeed great for card draw, but don't really fit in the theme of the deck. I've got Arcanis the Omnipotent, Jori En, Ruin Diver, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, and Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius included in the deck for card draw purposes.
Thanks a bunch for all of the suggestions! You've certainly given me plenty to consider and think about!

In order to really make this fly you need all the broken, expensive cards like Mana Vault, Ancient Tomb... (someday when we're rich an famous, ya?) Do pick up Urza's Tower, Urza's Mine, Urza's Power Plant, and Crystal Vein tho.
And since you're not abusing all those expensive cards, I'd plat Skittering Invasion just to have the ramp.

Emrakul, the Promised End is very good at breaking through blue players answers. They definitely wont like you after it resolves, but I don't like getting counter walled so it seems even to me.

Just a couple of suggestions:Ravenous Chupacabra is basically a strictly better Nekrataal.Wight of Precinct Six, and Death's Approach are both based off of creatures in your opponent's graveyards, which doesn't do much in your deck. You do seem to have a bit of a mill-theme with cards like Sphinx's Tutelage, but unless you really want to mill someone out, I recommend running a card like Secrets of the Dead.I'm a little confused as to the purpose of Etherium Sculptor. You do have a fair number of artifacts, but they are predominately cards that cost 1-3 mana, and the discount is barely relevant in the late game where this deck wants to build towards.You have Llanowar Scout and Courser of Kruphix, and while it is important to play Muldrotha, the Gravetide ahead of curve, Courser of Kruphix doesn't actually ramp you, and Llanowar Scout is pretty weak, as it has very few mid-late game applications, and is often a worse Rampant Growth. IDK about your budget, but if you want to platy a lot of lands, Ramunap Excavator + Azusa, Lost but Seeking is a good way to play a lot.Dictate of Karametra is good, but you don't really have much for it to ramp you into. I would run another way to mill cards, like Hermit Druid (You don't need to be playing combo for him to be good), or Perpetual Timepiece.Kruphix, God of Horizons, Like Dictate of Karametra, doesn't really ramp you into much. I have been having a lot of fun with Emrakul, the Promised End in this deck, as it usually costs about .Mirror-Mad Phantasm. This card is super sweet, I had totally forgotten about it, but it has the potential to mill your entire deck, which is pretty bad without Laboratory Maniac.

Avulth Wildfire is a card that helps with the stax plan and kills creatures, one of our biggest problems. Etali is just a really value heavy bomb in EDH, what can I say. Frantic Search is in there because it's a good card, and card filtering is always a plus. Could be swapped out with any other draw you like though. And I have been considering Emrakul, the Promised End but I'm not sure how she'd play in EDH. I have one, might try her out.
