Kozilek, the Great Distortion Discussion

Thanks for the feed back! Yes the price of this deck is pretty high, but most of these cards I already have in my collection. I have been looking at Animar, Soul of Elements for about a month now! but alas, trying to go completely colorless with this deck. . . the 3 colors are just to much, if i was going to use a color it would be blue Memnarch or Arcum Dagsson this also allows me counter spells, instant creature control and Power Artifact for another way of infinite mana and all the amazing artifact tutors. But i am determined to keep this a mono brown deck. I have play tested this deck about 30 times now and consistently get my commander out turn 5-6. And having his spot removal ability is great but i am always totally out of cards. I am trying to work in more draw artifacts, and am concidering changing my general to Kozilek, the Great Distortion that way i can play out my hand as fast as i can to ramp into playing him and have my hand refilled even if they counter me playing him.

One option I enjoy is pretty much just mono-mana-rocks with Kozilek, the Great Distortion as your commander to refill your hand, and a bunch of other Eldrazi as finishers.

My sister has a colorless edh deck. She uses some of the devoid cards. And runs Kozilek, the Great Distortion as the Genny. I say go for it!

I would make room to squeeze playsets of Blinkmoth Nexus and Inkmoth Nexus. Sacing one of your manlands is a nice cheap way to bring out a large expensive creature.

Your long term plans is banned in Modern, a good replacement for these would be Path to Exile so you have access to removal spells.

I would replace Wurmcoil Engine and Kozilek, the Great Distortion with x2 Blightsteel Colossus. You don't want more than one copy of each legendary, otherwise that could just be a potential Polymorph wiff.

Finally, I would take out Raise the Alarm. The best substitute would be Demonic Tutor so then you can quickly get your manlands and Polymorph into place for an early infect or beat down win.

This obviously isn't a budget upgrade, but hopefully it's something that helps point you in the right direction. Good luck!

enpc - Ya I know, the combo is to draw exactly all my library.. And exactly not one more into an empty library. Then Windfalling, which still wouldn't mill me out, just have my whole deck in my hand again. Ultimately make my opponents loose at the beggining of their next draw step if nothing happens ideally. It's a well known combo with people who play these pairs of commanders.

My only problem is I didn't know if there was a safer similar combo or other way of going about it so I don't get milled out by somebody casting a draw spell on me or whatever. I don't think there is so eh. I run Kozilek, the Great Distortion for this exact reason, and drop him before doing all this. Can literally throw all my cards at whatever.

+1! I really like eldrazi, since there are some hidden eldrazi gems, and they are usually budget. But, as my username suggests, I think you should add Mirrorpool, since you can copy a Flaying Tendrils or Kozilek's Return, or maybe choose Kozilek, the Great Distortion, Oblivion Sower, or Sire of Stagnation.

Staff of Nin could be a decent card in here. Draw power and additional poke each turn to play your big baddies. Also, Rite of Consumption could turn one dude into another in a very efficient manner, say sac your Desolation Twin token for a Kozilek, the Great Distortion.
