Kozilek, the Great Distortion Discussion

I personally don't run proliferate but I know someone that does so I don't know how much you want to follow my advice but I would say that a major problem with Ensnaring Bridge and Dueling Grounds is that it would affect you and your monsters too. Also with Ensnaring Bridge you have to watch your hand size because since it's power greater than the number of cards in your hand, if you have a full hand of 7 it means that creatures with a power of 8 or greater can't attack so while it would protect you from bigger things like Kozilek, the Great Distortion smaller creatures would still be able to attack you. You said that the deck is an infect deck but personally I would keep Hadana's Climb Flip because you might want that bigger monster that Hadana's Climb Flip can help you get to finish off the opponent. I also get that you want some protection but sometimes a bigger monster is good protection, especially in multiplayer commander.

You've got 7 ways to draw cards and they are Endbringer , Kozilek, Butcher of Truth , Kozilek, the Great Distortion , Vilis, Broker of Blood , Rhystic Study , Cryptic Command , and Finale of Revelation . 1 of which is reliable and/or good, Vilis. There is no value from Kydele, and you're just gonna have to hard cast some of the big spells. So add more card draw, but repeatable card draw too. Things like Arcanis the Omnipotent , Staff of Nin , or even Tower of Fortunes can all be used. Tower's not so good though, because it doesn't pay for itself

Benthehen333 - Absolutely! Not a problem. Excited to see the "Still Budget Upgrade List" for sure! I'm hoping to branch out and get more fun "Budget" decks after I made my first EDH Deck modeled after a Voltron Kozilek, the Great Distortion . The deck is a little strong for my meta as well, with the exception of two other not budget decks. If you care to see it: Koz, Colorless EDH Deck
To answer your question I looked at The Tax Man Cometh by KayneMarco and I would prefer you didn't by Molesto-the-Egregious as references: Disruptive Student , Vodalian Mage , Disruptive Pitmage , Turn Aside , Approach of the Second Sun , Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor , Dovin, Hand of Control , God-Pharaoh's Statue , Monastery Siege , War Tax , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Daxos of Meletis , Baird, Steward of Argive , Aven Mindcensor , Teyo, the Shieldmage , The Wanderer , Time Wipe , Foresee , Azor's Elocutors , and Marble Diamond are several Non-Land Sub $1 cards I saw in there as well. The list goes on, for sure. I didn't look into it beyond this but any W/U or Colorless card that let's you draw when an opponent draws would be fantastic. Mind's Eye would be a good Sub $5 card I know of, if there were to be upgrades in that deck.

RileyJP300 Thanks! I see what you mean with Temple of the False God as it would only help during turn 5 at the earliest which is when you should have Kozilek, the Great Distortion out, and thus hinder you if you have it as one of your openings hands. My land base has remained relatively unchanged to how it was when it was first made and so there are definitely lands that I didn't know about, that I'm egar to put in but I've just been lazy about as they're lands. At the moment I'm thinking of trying out Warping Wail and Winter Orb and a bunch of different utility lands. As unless I have Soul of New Phyrexia or Darksteel Forge out I can be set back by quite a bit, and Winter Orb will slow my opponents to a crawl. Whilst my rocks keep me going, especially with how it'll interact with things such as Clock of Omens and create interesting politic's situations. However, I don't think Not of This World will make a cut as I can easily cast Kozilek, the Great Distortion several times with amazing hand refills. Whilst I won't go for as many basics as you have, I'll probably add a couple more to ensure my library is never empty of them.

Won a 4 player matchup against Kozilek, the Great Distortion , Obzedat, Ghost Council , and Pheldegrif. The Kozilek player had a very commanding start which I was able to benefit from by copying an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger . Later we combined efforts to whittle down that board, while I build up tons of mana. With that, Capsize is a heck of a card and I slowly eeked out a win.

As for Kozilek, the Great Distortion however, I chose to cut him as the 2 Waste casting cost is rather difficult to come by in a deck like this that relies on fast, early colored mana.

Seeing as you’re dropping big creatures Kozilek, the Great Distortion gives you good draw and an ability to counter spells in rakdos
