Kozilek's Predator Discussion

Kazierts on Blind Eternities Summoning

Coax from the Blind Eternities is an interesting card and seems really fun to build around it. However, your deck looks like it's trying to do a lot of stuff instead of focusing on the Eldrazi plan.

Sideboardwise, no reason to have those lands in there. Spawning Bed is just a bad and slow card. Shrine of the Forsaken Gods while not and amazing card, can help you cast some of your big eldrazi after fetching them from the sideboard. Maybe one or two on the main board should help.

Still regarding the sideboard, just cut out Endless One . If you're gonna get and Eldrazi from your sideboard, that Eldrazi must win you the game or enable you to win the game, and Endless One does neither. Speaking of winning the game, wouldn't it be better to search for some of the huge Eldrazi instead of Eldrazi Conscription . The conscription is a fabulous card that can definelty win you the game, but it's also easily removable by killing or ou bouncing the creature it's attached to and it provides no protection. Also, Garruk Wildspeaker should be mainboarded. It's an amazing ramp card and sort of is a combo with Shrine of the Forsaken Gods since you can tap two of these for 4 mana and untap with him for more 4 mana, which would really help to cast and Eldrazi.

Now, speaking of cards that win you the game. Spawnsire of Ulamog can be an option to fetch so you can cast all of your other Eldrazi without having to fetch with a sorcery. Kozilek, the Great Distortion can help you refill your hand and enables you to counter an opponent's spell if you can discard a card, which can be useful if you think your opponent has a Path to Exile or a card that could deal with an Eldrazi. Void Winnower just locks your opponents out of hopefully half of their spells and makes it easier to attack with your creatures.

Rampwise, replace Eyeless Watcher with Kozilek's Predator since the Predator has a bigger body, is the same cost and produces the same amount of mana. From Beyond is not a bad card since the tokens could, technically, block attacks for you. However, regarding mana ramp, Awakening Zone is better since it drops one turn earlier, but it more expensive moneywise. From Beyond can also have other uses but I'll suggest other things later. Deathcap Cultivator helps you toward your goal of casting big things, even enabling you to splash black in the deck, while can also get deathtouch thus helping you to block. Just cut Heir of the Wilds for Deathcap Cultivator .

I still have other things I can suggest but I'd like to see what you think of what I said before continuing.

Sid_the_sloth on Best Budget Eldrazi Cards?

Also little side though I had a 60 card casual mono green eldrazi deck amd before you ask how is that casual, it wasnt big fatty eldrazi like modern or most competitive EDH plays it played. Nest Invader , Kozilek's Predator , Hand of Emrakul , Growth Spasm Awakening Zone simple stuff like that and what I found was having a problem with all these 0/1 tokens on the field so if you have that problem some how in 100cards..... Overwhelming Stampede and cards like that.....food for though

Nothing quite like spice with a price limit hah.

Hm, Kozilek's Predator doesn't seem to do much for you here. It's too expensive to be effective ramp and too small to be an effective beater. I'd say you're better off swapping those out for another beater that pairs well with unblockable. Sagu Mauler has the advantage of having hexproof so he can't be picked off as easily, and Hunted Troll has the advantage of being absolutely massive for the mana cost. You could also swap out some of the Yasova Dragonclaws for some of these.
Similarly, Augury Owl is too small to be a beater and doesn't ramp you at all. I'd say you're better off playing either some removal or more unblockable enablers in its place. Personally I'd swap them out for another two Aqueous Form, but you could also try Distortion Strike, Vapor Snag, or Disperse. The former two help your gameplan, the latter two help you stay alive to pull your gameplan off.
Smiliarly again, Call the Scions is too expensive to be an effective ramp spell, and the dorks are too small to make effective beaters. I say you're better off swapping them out for two more Llanowar Elves as a much more effective ramp spell. If you're afraid of sweepers or just prefer traditional ramp, you could opt instead for the OG Rampant Growth or even Harrow if you're feeling extra spicy (notice that harrow puts the lands into play untapped- you basically pay one mana to ramp on that turn!)
Civilized Scholar  Flip is... well, it's something. I'm not trying to tell you what to do or anything, but why play this? I suppose it does help filter through your deck and does make a scary beater if you can make it unblockable, but it dies to literally everything. Electrolyze, blocked by a lingering souls token, pyroclasm, even night of souls betrayal. I'd say if you're going to play something with one toughness it would be better off being a mana dork. Alternatively you could swap this for another unblockable spell or some removal.
Hour of Need doesn't play into your main strategy pretty much at all but I do think the concept of turning a few mana dorks into 4/4 fliers is hilarious. I assume you really like this card, leave it in if it's fun. It could be replaced with something else to make the deck more competitive but sometimes you just have to stick to your memes.

That's all I can think of while sticking close to the $10 budget. If your budget goes up let me know, I've got a few more ideas

Orochi Hatchery should give you repeatable X token generation, providing some board wipe resistance and efficiency over Snake Basket, so I'd probably take out the basket for the hatchery late game, and early game you don't really want the basket either. There are also a LOT of 4 drops in the deck already. That said, the basket could be useful I would just run hatchery over it. Might also want to cut Kozilek's Predator.

Unless you really want that extra token, Kozilek's Predator is a Emrakul's Hatcher costing less.

I think convoke works best with tokens. I would suggest putting token makers like Khalni Garden, Nest Invader, Kozilek's Predator and some few Ramps like Nissa's Pilgrimage. Put some utility cards like Selesnya Charm. Ramp is always greens best weapon.

xBradley5000 Thanks! Eldrazi Mimic is a really good idea! Awakening Zone is really good to, but I think Kozilek's Predator is just to slow on turn 4.
