KingofCorns on Yeet-drazi

I may be being stingey but Relic of Progenitus is just a pricey Tormod's Crypt. While Thran Dynamo is a great rock, I'd replace it with Hedron Archive.

I see most of the key Eldrazi you're trying to get out are good because of the, "when you cast". Perhaps Dreamstone Hedron instead of Planar Bridge, which would nullify that effect from your big bois.? Might as well just cast them sooner and get the effects.

Seal of the Guildpact doesn't seem to fit so well (as a monocolour/colourless deck), you already have Bontu's Monument, maybe a 4cmc something instead to smooth out that curve? Greed..??

I would definitely recommend cutting down on lands and trying to fill those slots with cheap land tutors similar to Evolving Wilds such as: Armillary Sphere, Renegade Map and Wayfarer's Bauble.I would also recommend Hedron Archive as it is a more expensive late game substitute for Sol Ring, which is generally an auto-include but is a little bit too expensive for a budget deck.

No removals are fine... I like running decks that just does what it does, doesn't mess with other players' hands or board-states, and asks the same in return. I have even won plenty of games worrying about my own cards and letting the opponents take care of clearing threats -one of the perks in a multiplayer format -somebody else will have the answers.

However, in order to keep playing the game, you need to avoid exhausting your hand. You need card draw. Mind's Eye is the best for mono-red; and you also have cards like Wheel of Fate, Magus of the Wheel, and Reforge the Soul to refill your hand.

Mind Stone, Hedron Archive, and Commander's Sphere will give you a little ramp, and then they can be sacked if you need the draw.

Faithless Looting, Tormenting Voice, and Wild Guess will net you cards, at a price.

Love the reports!

You continue to rave about Loreseeker's Stone - I think I have to test it out at this point! It is no doubt quite powerful.

Humble Defector is undoubtedly a powerhouse, I am actually considering running him in a couple of my Mardu decks at this point, I completely agree the politics of it all are an impressively powerful bonus on the draw.

I also played a game with Neheb this weekend. Ended up winning a 4 player pod, Dakkon Blackblade control, Kruphix, God of Horizons ramp/control, a friend borrowing my The Spirit of Self-Sacrifice Zurgo Helmsmasher piloted Aikido/control list, and myself on Neheb.

Kruphix got out to an early lead with a Seedborn Muse + Capsize lock on the table. I had a ramp heavy hand, doing nothing until turn 4 but landing Thran Dynamo followed by Hedron Archive + Caged Sun. I was identified as the biggest competition for the Kruphix player, who basically just forced me to re-deploy my ramp every turn with his Capsize lock.

At some point I had a miniature explosive turn dropping Neheb + Price of Progress instead of re-deploying ramp, playing Reforge the Soul and praying. I hit support pieces - Lightning Greaves and a few other things. Greaves + Neheb were summarily bounced in that order, setting us back to square 1.

Dakkon player interacted enough to force the Kruphix player to over-extend his own interaction, allowing the Zurgo player to wipe the board with a Blasphemous Act, Kruphix dropped the Capsize shields to save his Seedborn Muse bouncing to hand. I was next and was able to follow up with Neheb plus Lightning Greaves and Acidic Soil, generate big mana, Aggravated Assault and technically go infinite (my meta typically doesn't allow, but we needed the game to end so we called it!)

It was an oppressive game that we all felt was clearly over due to the Kruphix player's dominant early position, but Neheb can truly win from a lot of very behind situations!

You average converted mana cost is around 4.8 that exstreamly high for a mono white deck. 47 lands is good enough. 33 creatures is in the high side I'd settle with 28. You're not really running an enchantment heavy deck so Sigil of the Empty Throne is not good here. You need lots of ramp if you want to do what you are saying you want to do so you'll need mana doublers like Caged Sun and Extraplanar Lens and Gauntlet of Power you'll need to focus of the ramp package that ramps for more then 1. You'll need the ones like Coalition Relic, Worn Powerstone, Ur-Golem's Eye, Sisay's Ring, Mana Vault and Mana Crypt. Also run the land ramp package Ancient Tomb, Scorched Ruins, Myriad Landscape, and Terrain Generator

Kaleo42 on What Glory Looks Like

Ok so I took a good long look and you appear to be on a budget of about $10 per card so I kept my recommendations around or below that mark. The biggest thing I have learned about neheb decks regardless of the speed or competitiveness of the table is that they want additional combats for more mana since it checks total damage dealt in a turn and ways to get spend that mana. My first recommendations are the additional combat effects.

Aggravated Assault Especially this one

Fury of the Horde

Relentless Assault

Seize the Day

Combat Celebrant, this one combos with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and if you have it Zealous Conscripts is screaming to be included. Zealous can haste your creatures, steal mana or beatsticks to further your plan, or clear the way for your attack.

Next some draw card effects. Some of these are the exile then cast effect, but with Neheb surging mana thats just as good.

Runehorn Hellkite, Magus of the Wheel, Knollspine Dragon, Chandra, Flamecaller, Bedlam Reveler wheel effects are the most efficient draw cards you can get and the ones that hit your opponents too can disrupt tutors.

Smuggler's Copter, Tormenting Voice, Wild Guess looting effects are great ways to get value out of extra land draws or flashback/unearth spells.

Browbeat, Hedron Archive both give you mana or cards, one is your choice one is theirs.

Etali, Primal Storm, Stromkirk Occultist, Prophetic Flamespeaker, Wildfire Eternal are great beaters in different parts of the curve and give you more spells to play.

Sunbird's Invocation AMAZING. If your table will give you the time to play this card play it. This is up there with Aggravated Assault in my top recommendations.

Protecting Neheb is extremely important and can be done in two ways: traditional protection, and slipping under your opponents. What I mean by the slipping under your opponents is playing him with haste and/or earlier than expected, this is the key driver of my deck since my table doesnt give me time to play him at normal speed. Below are some mana accelerants to cheat him out, haste sources I havent covered above, and traditional protection.

Mana Accelerants

Generator Servant this one is both mana and haste but broadcasts your intent ahead of time.

Desperate Ritual, Pyretic Ritual sometimes one extra mana is all you need, but more so filtering a colorless to two read is great.

Koth of the Hammer and Treasonous Ogre are also a decent beaters.

Mana Vault, Simian Spirit Guide good one time mana effects and both are a lower price now then they likely will be in the near future.

Sword of the Animist great for filtering your deck both before and after you slam multiple attacks with Neheb.

Hasty

Anger plays nice with the looting and wheels mentioned before.

Hall of the Bandit Lord can scare people with the 3 life but it is so efficient and so worth it.

Hammer of Purphoros, Lightning Mauler, Obsidian Battle-Axe are great because they are static like Anger and dont require any additional mana the turn you play Neheb to start attacking.

Hanweir Battlements and Swiftfoot Boots do cost a mana but one has the added protection and the other can be a surprise damage push.

ProtectionDarksteel Plate, Hammer of Nazahn especially if your table is wrath happy.

Homeward Path because your games run long enough for dumb things to happen to Neheb.

Rogue's Passage and Whispersilk Cloak unblockable can be a form of protection and obviously shroud protects.

Fork counter your counter, haha!

Sometimes you just have to mess up your opponents to buy the time you need.Blasphemous Act is great if you have an indestructible Neheb and Red Sun's Zenith is removal or a win con depending on how much mana you have.

Captivating Crew in a creature heavy meta can wreck face.

Magus of the Moon if youre that guy and your opponents rely too much on lands.

Release the Gremlins and Smash to Smithereens deal with pesky artifacts and push damage.

Scab-Clan Berserker especially if anyone plays storm.

Stigma Lasher deals with lifegain which can otherwise be a big problem.

Stranglehold make them draw cards like you have to.

Void Winnower there are other good eldrazi to consider as something to poor your mana into but this is in my top two more budget picks.

Other good cards.Hanweir Garrison couples with a haste land and is a fantastic beater. Hero's Blade extra damage for no equip cost. Strionic Resonator does gross things with all the triggers in the deck. Temur Battle Rage great way to massively increase your damage and mana.

Please read the whole thing I can't check mark "suggestions" for all of these at once.
