Kozilek, the Great Distortion Discussion

ManaChrome on Is a creature with menace ...

Is Kozilek, the Great Distortion unblockable when I equip him with Vorrac Battlehorns? (I mean... the title explains the question...)

the_earl_0f_grey on Sisay has the answers (Competitive Commander Deck)

Kozilek, the Great Distortion refills the hand and turns Sisay into Tap: Counter Target Spell.

Implore you to reconsider Honor-Worn Shaku and Earthcraft. You're already running a Paradox Engine. Storm your heart out.

I haven't tested Throne of the God-Pharaoh but I'm sure it warrants consideration.

Kozilek, the Great Distortion is a good choice, as his last ability synergizes well with the deck theme and colorless mana isn't a big deal in the deck. You could also consider Breaker of Armies to sneak creatures through combat and facilitate a later on win, and Void Winnower helps protect your creatures from threats and facilitate combat, at least until the fall rotation.

If you're set on running Champion of Rhonas, I'd recommend running some larger creatures to fully take advantage of its ability. While they're still in standard there's always Kozilek, the Great Distortion and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, but if you want to go more budget or not have to worry about the rotation this fall, there's always the gearhulks. If you get into the late game, Verdurous Gearhulk and Noxious Gearhulk for free could definitely give you an edge.

If you want to really take advantage of your commanders cost reduction ability you need more colorless creatures that can be played with it. Especially ones that draw cards like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth and Kozilek, the Great Distortion.

NINJAxPENGUIN92 I get that, but like I said before I don't really want to focus on a single color. The Eldrazi can all be casted with any combination of color of mana, save for Kozilek, the Great Distortion. Omnath, Locus of Mana focuses solely on Green Mana. If I were trying to go for a single color of mana, it would be a totally different deck. I understand perfectly from where you are coming from, but I just don't think that Omnath would be a fit in this deck. Maybe some time in the future, I would make a deck focused on him,(after I finish working on Rainbow Humans and All Colored Combos: Budget Edition for my brother), because it seems like a fun concept to build up a ton of mana and never use it.

I've done looked at like 3 other lists before this, why are none of you running the Eldrazi titans like Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Kozilek, the Great Distortion?

Some powerfull eldrazi are Kozilek, the Great Distortion or Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. They are kind of expensive so try to put in some more ways to spawn eldrazi scions that you can sacrifice for mana; Such as Eldrazi Skyspawner, However, most of them are green cards, such as Blisterpod or Call the Scions. If you do add green you could also check out World Breaker.
