Emrakul, the Promised End Discussion


10 hours ago

I'm just dropping by to confirm that Frontier is M15 and onwards.

Also, there is currently no ban list.

Which means you can infinite combo with Saheeli Rai + Felidar Guardian, or spin Emrakul, the Promised End out on Turn 4 with Aetherworks Marvel.

You can also use Smuggler's Copter to your heart's content.

Would Emrakul, the Promised End be out of your budget as a one of? I truthfully only suggest her for her triggered ability to Mindslaver someone. In my mind you should be legally able to choose the "lose the game" option if you've gifted them the pact early and have control of them for a turn. I do only recommend this as a fun idea mind you and not for real competitive play.

Thanks so much! Yeah I look forward to trying out a bunch of Deserts ... I have no idea how they're going to work out, but I'm excited to find out!

Geier Reach Sanitarium is interesting, but it seems kinda like Noose Constrictor: Great with The Gitrog Monster but kind of meh otherwise (because the deck is not generally looking for the discard effect). Thanks though!

Clip Wings is great, and I played it all the time when Emrakul, the Promised End was a thing. Right now though, my meta is chock-full of Temur Energy decks, where there's always a Thopter token to sac' instead of a Glorybringer. It may be exactly what the deck needs for HOU Standard though! Btw, Plummet works fine against Archangel Avacyn  Flip ... well, as long as you have 1G available to hit her while the Indestructible trigger is on the stack.

Thank you again!

Emrakul, the Aeons Torn or Emrakul, the Promised End wins in 2 and is also pretty protected. Given how your big turn 4-5 play is make a 5/5, that seems very weak?

Artifact synergy is just so absurd! The only recommendations I can think of are Emrakul, the Promised End and Mindslaver, both run effectively in artifact and colorless decks. Even without them though the deck will overwhelm most!

Most Eldrazi-tron decks rely on Reality Smasher as a finisher. You could also run Eldrazi Mimic above Warden of Geometries

You could run an Emrakul, the Promised End, or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre as other game enders.

Cloudstone Curio + Animar, Soul of Elements counters = Infinite Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Emrakul, the Promised End & Solemn Simulacrum ETB's. If you already have one on board.

How well do your win conditions work? It seems like you could have issues with removal since your opponent is drawing as many cards as you. They could also chump block all your guys. One idea is you could replace those 10 creatures with 2 Elixir of Immortality and win by decking them. You could then add more fogs, 4 Fatal Push, and/or counterspells.

You could put 1-2 Creeping Tar Pit in the board for another win condition. I say in the board, because you don't want them seeing it game 1. That way they'll take out removal.

You also have the problem of decks that don't win through combat damage or other have shenanigans such as Mindslaver. Commencement of Festivities and Defend the Hearth would stop Storm and any deck with Walking Ballista. They can just replace your other 2 drop fogs. I would put in a couple counterspells for these decks, any deck that casts Emrakul, the Promised End and others I can't think of atm.

Also, Temple Bell > Rites of Flourishing. Font of Mythos is also an option.
