Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth might be a good addition, just as ways to prevent self mill.

If you can get your hands on some of the 0 mana artifacts some are quite expensive but they definitely beef up the raw power of the deck; I'd proxy before buying any, some have a hefty price tag

Mox Opal

Chrome Mox

Mana Crypt

Mox Diamond

Mishra's Bauble

Welding Jar

Additionally, stax pieces really help you stay in the game

Torpor Orb

Cursed Totem

Ward of Bones

Narset, Parter of Veils + Windfall is a pretty nifty combo and both cards are great on their own

Blood Moon

Sphere of Resistance

Thorn of Amethyst

Last but definitely not least some degenerate finishers

Kozilek, Butcher of Truth

Ulamog, ceaseless hunger

Blightsteel Colossus

This is a 1 Damage KO Deck. Utilizing Card Advantage, a Myriad of threats to slow those down, Heck, I actually put the High CMC stuff in as Atemsis Bantha Fodder. just to win a game; so they're not useless at all as this is how Atemsis, All-Seeing Works as a CMDR; high amounnts of unique CMC Costs for use.

But what about these?

1: Hall of Gemstone : (I guess Omnath Reserve works here?) 2: Frontier Siege (Ramp or Kill... I'd rather ramp; not enough powerful creatures to be a "Dragon"...) 3: Silent Arbiter (Is this why you said "No." to a Teferi Killer? ) 4: Angel's Trumpet (But why use this, W/O Hydra-Kitten-chan? 5: Uba Mask (I, uh,,, How good is this? I never understood how these effects are "Good".) 6: Abundance (It's a Random Pick, but at least you get to choose which pick needed. II keep.)
7: Teferi's Puzzle Box ( Mindmoil ? IN MY ?! Permanent Keep.) 8: Meteor Golem If only what this guy can do IRL is safe; as it's not. Awesome effect; almost like a Bramblecrush on legs; Artifice also. Keep.). 9. Cauldron of Souls (This looks good for my Cromat "No Counters Allowed" Deck. But why the recommendation?
10: Colfenor's Urn (Uh... I'd have an opinion as long as I know Exile Stoarge Plus'.) 11: Lifeline (I'd like to make a list of stuff hates, & recursion is one. Since we're in theme, this Pases.) 12: Mimic Vat (This is secret tech for Superfriends; but what to use w/ here) 13: Mirrorworks 14: Not of This World (This wasn't chopped. This was Planet-Cleaved. How many creatures here have 7 Power?) 15: Pariah's Shield (I guess it's for Omnath? I'd like to change this up after this as well as work on my Atemsis Deck for this.)

As well as the Losers of this deck...

1: Wolfhunter's Quiver (There is a combo involving this, Thornbite Staff , something w/ Deathtouch, & It That Betrays to wipe a whole field clean while going to Value Town. Why the cut?) 2: Akroma's Memorial (I re-entered this in as it's Mana-Pricey, but we've Omnath Anyway; so putting this online is proof of Omnath #1 's HUGE Ramp.) 3: Destructor Dragon (I guess we've already enough flying stuff; & this was just a clunker.) 4: Lignify (Why cut this, & not Song of the Dryads also? Is this for turning a creature into a mere blocker?) 5: Eldrazi Conscription (Is this Aura really that bad? Alright, Tuvasa the Sunlit has it now.) 6/7: Noxious Revival / Reclaim (Reclaim is at least, affordable (Quasi-Recursion via Topdecking; Noxious Revival is basically the same, but on Gitaxian Probe level power. Why does everyone think Phyrexian Mana Cards are so good? I'll never know...) 8: Scour from Existence (Do I Other Ways of Destruction? I guess I'll allow the cut.) 9: Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre (Are Eldrazi that Bad here? It's either This, or Kozilek, & It that Betrays. Should I trust my gut on this?) 10: Chrome Mox : Replaced by Nyx Lotus indefinitely unless it gets banned. 11: Key to the City : (I guess The Quasi-Rummage requiring more mana for one to have a creature unblackable, then untap to Draw. I didn't think I'd be better off w/o Discarding...) 12: Ratchet Bomb (Blowing up Mana Rocks; someone said (Kinda...), But you were right about this as a cut; I thought it as sketchy.) 13: Sensei's Divining Top ((?_?) I mean, even Noxious Revival is understandable, but saying Chopp'd to a Big Staple of all Commander/EDH? I'm at a loss...) 14: Harmonize (Should I put Rishkar's Expertise back in?) 15: Gilded Goose ((Looks at Card.) Why say no? It makes food, & ramps. Just imagine the (Weiß)Versatility this can do. 16: It That Betrays (Why say no to this? is it that average? Remember that Value Town Combo...). 17: Kozilek, Butcher of Truth (Does this attract that much hate? Is that why the Eldrazi are veto'd here? 18: Wall of Tanglecord (Actually, good piont; would rather bust defenses, not use them.) 19: Questing Beast (Are you confident to suggest cutting Kitten Hydra-chan? It's one of the best cards in this case, sadly...)
20: Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger (Doubling Land Mana; & more so, while Halfing everyone else? Is the problem w/ big fatties I didn't know of even?) 21: Bow of Nylea (+1/+1 Counter on a Creature? 2 Damage to a flyer? 3 Life? & Retrieve 4 Cards from the Yard to the Bottom of your library in any order? Attackers have Deathtouch? Damn; I'd actually put this in now if I've a way to Untap Freely for this...)

& the underdogs?

1: Gingerbread Cabin (Is this worth keeping? Seems lackluster...) 2: Nissa, Worldwaker (Searching for all Forests? Why not Landfall like mad? Opinions?) 3: Prototype Portal + Ugin's Nexus Extra Turns w/o Seedtime . Good, or not?)
4: Sword of the Animist Is this good for ramp? I'm wondering...) 5: Umbral Mantle (Yeah, this could've been good, if the Shaman Staff 1 Damage Deathtouch Steal via IT THAT BETRAYS is far better even w/o the last piece!) 6: Yeva, Nature's Herald : (Is another Restricted to just Creatures worth it?) 7: Nylea, God of the Hunt : Already got a way to Trample like MAD, & I've other ways to increase both Power & toughness for my creatures anyway. Nylea, Keen-Eyed ? Worse here, but better in Animar, Soul of Elements all-creature builds. Oh, & the latter demands Topdecking, otherwise, you might just wasted a good card.

Sorry for the immense sized comments; I just want to point out my opinions; & I'm sorry if So, that said, I'll revise my Atemsis, All-Seeing Deck later; It's night where I'm at...

Later! :)

Drop Gaea's Blessing for Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre ? Only asking because Gaea's Blessing will only reshuffle your graveyard if it is milled from your library. Its a good ability, but you can not discard it to get the same effect that both Kozilek, Butcher of Truth and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre 's abilities.

Great Deck BTW +1

Bro this is that deck. I’ve been stuck on choosing a mono green commander and this list looks amazing. Can’t wait to try it out.

What are your thoughts on Kenrith's Transformation ? Pretty decent “removal” and cantrip for two mana.

Maybe Kozilek, Butcher of Truth could be viable? We ramp hard enough to be able to hardcast him fairly early, he soft fills hand, and shuffles grave back to prevent mill or any trickery of that nature. Not sure if it’s necessary but would love to hear your thoughts. Always fun to draw 11 cards w/ Greater Good.

I'm really liking this list and I think one card that would do wonders would be Kozilek, Butcher of Truth . It offers various benefits from the initial 4 card draw, is a suitable threat in it's own, and most importantly has the critical graveyard shuffle effect. It would indirectly strengthen card choices such as Greater Good . Drawing 11 from Kozilek w/ Greater Good seems out of control. Even things like shuffling back destroyed lands and drawing/playing them for the future turns further extends the Constant Mists window. Would love to hear your thoughts, I'm unsure if you ran any Eldrazi package beforehand but I noticed you had an Eldrazi Temple in there.

Just remember, I have 21 cards to cut. While TypicalTimmy's ideas for colorless is good, some of them should be among the 21 that gets severed, or replaced with another (Replace means To Cut, then Add in the Cut card's place.). I'm keeping ( Thornbite Staff + Wolfhunter's Quiver ), Akroma's Memorial , Eldrazi Conscription (Possible Cut), It That Betrays (Uh, look at the combo above?), Artisan of Kozilek , either Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , Steel Hellkite , Scour from Existence , Ratchet Bomb , Nevinyrral's Disk .

Some of these can be cut, but think of the ones that can be classified as a 241, or even 341 or higher... :)

Hello all!

I am looking for a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth and an Ugin, the Ineffable .

My binder on TappedOut is not updated, and I do not have time to sort it out. Instead, I have pictures of my binder I can send via PM, text, or Facebook messenger. Mostly EDH stuff.

So if you have those two cards and are interested in trading, comment below!
