Creature — Eldrazi Drone
When Emrakul's Hatcher enters the battlefield, put three 0/1 colorless Eldrazi Spawn creature tokens onto the battlefield. They have "Sacrifice this creature: Add to your mana pool."

Emrakul's Hatcher Discussion
2 weeks ago
I like the idea a lot. I recommend taking out 5 cards to take it down to 60 cards so you have a bigger chance of drawing the right cards (Emrakul's Hatcher and some of the enchantments aren't great here imo.)
With your current land-base you might get manascrewed pretty often so lands that give multiple colors of mana would be great. Painted Bluffs and Rupture Spire both slow you down quite a bit, they're not very good. Jungle Shrine is better, enters tapped but mana of any color you need after that. Tranquil Expanse, Timber Gorge and Stone Quarry all work too.
Looking forward to updates!

Ok, so after playtesting and trying out various different ideas I've pretty much decided this doesn't really work. I did discover that digging cards like Ancient Stirrings and Commune with Nature and cantrips like Dissenter's Deliverance and Edge of Autumn are a really fun way to put together combos though, so I've changed to the Brood Monitor / Eldrazi Displacer combo. This is better as it has more redundancy (Emrakul's Hatcher can replace Brood Monitor and either Flayer Drone or Altar of the Brood can be the win condition). This also means that virtually all combo pieces can be found by Ancient Stirrings (except Emrakul's Hatcher but Commune with Nature can still grab that if need be).
Its quite consistent and can usually assemble the combo by Turn 5.

Any further advice would be greatly appreciated. And thanks again to everyone who has helped out so far...

You guys are probably right but I like that Pia and Kiran give me flying tokens which is rare in this deck. Also I am hesitant to drop any X token generators since they are absolutely explosive late game.

WestHo I'll put that to consideration (testing phases). There's always a downside to creatures, especially vulnerabilities to many boardwipes. I can't tell you how many times I lose Krenko, Mob Boss when I play him. I also can't assume that I'll be playing in 4 player games. (Sometimes, it's all about the 1 vs 1.)
As Purphoros plays, you get ganged up upon pretty easily. Players can block for other players. I've tested Chandra's Spitfire before, and I kept getting blocked by 1/1 thopters. Attacking is not necessarily the forte in this deck, especially if Ensnaring Bridge or Glacial Chasm is in play.
Neheb, the Eternal is a good maybe. I consider him late mana, and so far, he's a toss up with Emrakul's Hatcher in terms of mana cost. I like the latter, because of the synergy with Panharmonicon, but still willing to test Neheb out.
Destruction cards are a necessary evil in keeping up with some truly explosive decks/infinite combo decks. Copy cards are also important to copy counters/super powerful spells normally not accessed in red. Copying a Beacon of Tomorrows, having your extra turn to play Stranglehold was definitely a highlight of one of my games!

Optimator Good find with Grand Warlord Radha as she fits perfectly into this list as well as Emrakul's Hatcher. The others are one offs though and just have the mana ramp feel though. Great spells but not really for this list.

So I went to a tournament in my LGS last saturday and got a mediocre result with this deck.
Out of 12 rounds I played, I only was able to assemble tron round 3 in 4 of the games.
The faces of people facing a Ulamog's Crusher turn 4 is priceless.
I think of the following changes to make the deck more consistent:
- 4x Brood Birthing into 4x Crop Rotation
- 4x Nest Invader into 4x Fierce Empath
- 3x Emrakul's Hatcher for 1 more Rolling Thunder and 2 Radiant Fountain
- 4x Rugged Highlands for 4x Crumbling Vestige
- 3x Druid's Deliverance into 3x Moment's Peace
BTW: Duress was the best card in my sideboard, because a lot of people played B/U Control decks.
