Eye of Ugin Discussion
2 weeks ago
Your deck looks good so far (the playtest at least worked well)! I like the eldrazi theme you have, maybe you want to consider running Eldrazi Temple and Eye of Ugin since they give you even more value :) What meta are u playing in and how does the deck behave/refresh against board-wipes and control decks?

no actually i'm right on the mana thing. you said turn 2. that means 2 lands. so you'd use 1 of them to cast Call the Scions (if Eye of Ugin could reduce its cost). you have 1 land remaining. plus 2 tokens. 3 mana. cmon now.

Eye of Ugin does not reduce the cost of Call the Scions, because it is not an eldrazi spell. and even if it did, it would not give you 4 effective mana, but 3 remaining. the remaining land plus the 2 tokens.

Quicksilver Amulet - you have like 11 creatures over CMC 4 and can use it to flash stuff in.
Belbe's Portal - pretty much same as above.
Might also consider some creature cost reducers as well, like Urza's Incubator, Semblance Anvil, or Herald's Horn. Especially since you say you want to cast stuff free but don't really have many creature cheaters, nor cmc reducers in the deck.
Mirage Mirror - Works awesome with Sunbird's Invocation, but also with your creatures to give you an instant copy of a fatty as needed, as well as a few creature abilities (especially Combat Celebrant!). Plus lets you also copy opponents stuff too to use their own stuff against them. "Nice Wound Reflection you have there..." And if you know how to play it on the stack properly you can use it to get multiple effects in a turn for things.
Prophetic Prism seems like a waste in a mono deck.
Mimic Vat - Oh no, they killed one of your titans! Or something cool that has an ETB, or other ability. Good thing you can make a copy of it, but with haste, for a turn, at instant speed. Or maybe they have something cool you killed off that you want...
Rogue's Passage - let your fatties just walk on through.
Quietus Spike - because it's fun to be a dick :D
I have a BU Vela deck, Vela's toys bring her pleasure and you pain, that's built on cheating out artifacts and creatures. While it's not like your deck (though I originally used Eldrazi instead of artifact creatures in orig version), it may give you some more ideas for how to cheat in stuff.
Also, don't skip decks in the "Advertise your COMMANDER deck!" thread ;)

Always fun to see different people's takes on Zegana! I've been running her as my main commander now for a couple of years, and 32 lands is a little too greedy in my opinion. I was playing 33 + Eye of Ugin forever and just changed the Eye to a mana producer and added a 35th land.
Nice build, +1 from me!

The leading reason why Chalice of the Void was cut is that there was a big drop-off in the decks you needed it against most (and that it was the biggest blowout against) like Infect, Living-End, and Suicide Zoo. The modern Death's Shadow decks like Grixis or Traverse shadow can be beaten without Chalice, but if there is ever a large upsurge in Traverse-Shadow type decks maybe Chalice would be worth bringing back into the sideboard. Additionally though, Chalice of the Void has a high cost of play in G/x Tron since it shuts down your own Chromatic Stars, Chromatic Spheres, Expedition Maps, and if you are running any, Relic of Progenituss. So if the card is not a blowout against your opponent, it's not the easiest thing to board in. Finally in regards to chalice it is worth noting that Eldrazi-Tron is one of the best Chalice decks in modern, so if that deck is doing well, Chalice is generally in a good place, but if the deck is trending out of the meta (like it is now) then Chalice is not as strong.
As for Blightsteel Colossus, that actually might be worth bringing back in, especially if your meta has a lot decks that you need to close out on quickly, or a lot of countermagic (Which with the coming of Jace, the Mind Sculptor to modern will likely see an uptick). The thing is Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger can also mill out the opponent and therefore also provides an out things like combo-lifegain. Additionally Blightsteel Colossus doesn't generate any immediate advantage an requires at a minimum 5 lands to cast. That means it doesn't help you protect your lifetotal against aggro as effectively as Wurmcoil Engine or recover boardstate like Ulamog or gain you card advantage like Kozilek. Furthermore without Eye of Ugin you can't just repeatedly tutor out and try to cast Blightsteel Colossus until it resolves. So of the 10+ mana threats, it was the easiest to cut. As mentioned at the start though, it might be worth bringing back at least to sideboards if a lot more counter-magic control decks are running around, since it shuffles back into your library allowing you to try to play it repeatedly, and only gives the opponent one turn to respond to before they die (assuming insufficient blockers on board).
