Eye of Ugin Discussion

Eye of Ugin is super powerful given the cost reduction and repeatable tutor effect it offers you. Mystic Forge will let you gain some card advantage by casting eldrazi from your topdecks. You've got most of the strong budget eldrazi, but in case you missed it, Pathrazer of Ulamog is another one you can add. All Is Dust is almost completely a one sided boardwipe. It's perfect for your deck. Return of the Wildspeaker can offer you a ton of draw with basically any eldrazi you've got in play. Tempt with Discovery can get you lots of sol lands like Eldrazi Temple, Shrine of the Forsaken Gods, and Eye of Ugin all in one go. With how big your eldrazi are, and also with how many cards you have that use colorless mana, I would suggest efficient mana rocks like Worn Powerstone and Thran Dynamo. They'll accelerate you nicely. Some cards that go nicely with Jodah are Blatant Thievery, Clone Legion, and Sunbird's Invocation. I'm certain they'll do well here, too.
I'll make some suggestions for card you could remove, too. Darksteel Forge doesn't do too much for you since it won't help your eldrazi. Eldrazi Monument is actually a bad card for your deck since you don't have enough cards that makes lots of tokens, you'll end up sacrificing your bigger eldrazi which wouldn't feel very good. Elixir of Immortality really doesn't do anything for your deck. Call the Scions is pretty underwhelming and isn't much of a commander card. Skittering Invasion really doesn't do much compared to other 7 cmc spells you could run. Conflux isn't really capable of tutoring anything all that powerful for you, and Enlightened Tutor really doesn't have any worthwhile targets either. I see you have a bit of an exile and process theme with cards like Ulamog's Nullifier but I would personally change it and just go with as many backbreaking eldrazis and other spells you can. With Jodah as your commander, you can run all kinds of nasty plays.

Seems like a super fun deck idea, my only contributions/suggestions would be to add a extra few cost-reduction effects, as nothing would be worse than someone countering your commander and then just having a Metalwork Colossus and an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger trapped in your hand forever. Maybe add Jhoira's Familiar/Cloud Key/Foundry Inspector.
and just some good value cards could be Conduit of Ruin, Eye of Ugin, Molten Nursery/Nettle Drone (those ones would be super good!), Mystic Forge, Sanctum of Ugin and Shrine of the Forsaken Gods. Good luck!

Actually the deck only runs 37 lands, that reliably produce mana with Eye of Ugin, Maze of Ith and Temple of the False God not making mana outright or at all. If ioniboi adds more of the fast mana like Mana Crypt and Lion's Eye Diamond i can see going below 37+3. as it stands the decks needs to make its land drop up to at least 6-7 lands to be able to cast Kozilek.

Everyone knows Ugin. He's a protagonist Dragon, the twin brother of Nicol Bolas, and got a sweet reprint in Core 2021. But he can't be trusted, and nothing is what it seems...
Let's begin with Rise of the Eldrazi, where we learn that Sorin, Nahiri, and Ugin had worked together to imprison the three Eldrazi titans, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. These three beings escape in Rise of the Eldrazi. So it seems that Ugin is against the Eldrazi. But no, hold up a second. Why does practically every single card printed with Ugin's name ASSIST ELDRAZI? Eye of Ugin, Ugin, the Ineffable, and our M21 Ugjn, the Spirit Dragon are all staples in Eldrazi decks. Now, one could pin this down to coincidence or simply just the cards aligning in that way. But as we learn later, there are some suspicious things going on with Ugin...
In Battle for Zendikar, we learn that Ugin does not want the Gatewatch to kill the titans Ulamog and Kozilek, as he suspects they are part of the natural order of the universe. Seems legit until you realize that every major villain sees itself as a natural part of the universe or an inevitable force. Thanos has that same mentality. The Phyrexians do as well.
Later, in War of the Spark, Nicol Bolas routinely refers to himself as "we". The same occurs to Chandra when she steps atop The Immortal Sun atop New Prahv. Why "we"? Perhaps for Chandra it was a communication with the corruption of the Sun, but I believe that the Sun was in some way built as a conduit for Emrakul's petulent whispers. At the end of the War of the Spark, Ugin displays some frightening tendencies as he gloats to his brother Bolas and psychologically torments him. Nicol Bolas appears diminutive next to his brother. Ugin does not normally behave this way. Honestly, he acts like the cinematic Albus Dumbledore most of the time.
The last creepy part is that Bolas, a dragon supposedly in possession of a mastermind's brain, could not see the gaping holes in his own plan. Perhaps the Spirit Gem had something to do with that. Nicol Bolas had been smart enough before the Elder Dragon War to destroy his siblings but could not destroy a few tiny planeswalkers with the power of a god on a plane where there was no equal to his might! And who is the Spirit Gem connected to? Why, no other than Ugin himself.
In War of the Spark Forsaken (ugh), Ugin says to Liliana that the Spirit Gen will help her find a better her. Um... why is Ugin now taking a sudden interest in Liliana's personal life? I have the feeling that the Spirit Gem is going to cause more harm than good.
And then there's The Ozolith. An unknown planeswalker had tampered with the Ozolith, causing it to emit mind-control pulses that made the monsters of Ikoria attack the forces of Drannith. But what if it wasn't a planeswalker? What if it was Emrakul? Or maybe it was Ugin. I mean, the sudden mutation seems to fall in line with what Emrakul does, see Howling Chorus.
Just some fun speculation, let me know what you think.

I see you are a cultured person.
Also, if you like Eldrazi, and you want to have some variety, I would highly recommend trying out Rakdos, Lord of Riots.
