Kozilek's Shrieker Discussion

Jagd_Tallgeese on Mono red aggro-post rotation Work in progress

The Crow of Dark Tidings can go as you have no cards in that deck that benefit from either Delirium. You have only one means of Waste mana production, so n there is no need for Drownyard Temple or Kozilek's Shrieker. Same applies to Foreboding Ruins and Choked Estuary. Without any other means of getting energy counters, having Aether Poisoner in the deck wouldn't be necessary. I see some synergy with Vampire Noble, Indulgent Aristocrat and Carrier Thrall. You could sacrifice the Carrier Thralls to pump Vampire Noble from the ability of Indulgent Aristocrat. Equip two of the Vampire Nobles with Haunted Cloak, and it can be quite lethal to the unsuspecting. If you want to that route, you may want to acquire Gifted Aetherborn, which has deathtouch, lifelink, and would benefit from the pump from Indulgent Aristocrat. This also opens up your deck to keep your zombie producer's like Shamble Back and your creature recursion spells like Resourceful Return. You can trim the number of Swamp to 24.

Bearer of Silence in for Kozilek's Shrieker is what I'd suggest

Panzerforge on Vela, Eldrazi Enchantress

They could be fun to add in, likes_wonky_decks, though when I built it I was trying to avoid the Titans with their high Mana costs. Because so many creatures have activated abilities that stack and have no limit on their uses (Kozilek's Shrieker, for example...) so you don't usually have much mana to spare each turn.

Thanks for the feedback, I'm really happy with this deck!

With the arrival of colorless creatures, it become interesting to play colorless, but your deck would lose stability, if you want to play "wastes", cut a color.

I listed the best budget eldrazies and and related spells in blue, black, red and colorless.

Spell Shrivel --> Void Shatter

Touch of the Void --> Processor Assault

Lands: Wastes, Shivan Reef (because it would really help you), Ruins of Oran-Rief

Black: Grave Birthing, Reaver Drone, Sifter of Skulls, Sky Scourer, Swarm Surge, Visions of Brutality

Blue: Dimensional Infiltrator

Red: Eldrazi Obligator, Kozilek's Sentinel

Blue/Black: Ulamog's Nullifier

Black/Red: Forerunner of Slaughter

Colorless: Blight Herder, Spatial Contortion , Titan's Presence, Walker of the Wastes, Warping Wail

Blue/Colorless: Prophet of Distortion

Black/Colorless: Kozilek's Shrieker

Grave Birthing might be worth siding against Delirium decks.

Transgress the Mind can be a nice side against midrange decks.

Smothering Abomination might be nice for the draw power, but the sacrifice upkeep could be costly.

Stoneforge Masterwork is another neat choice to consider, since the whole deck is Eldrazi.

Warping Wail and Spatial Contortion are great cards that you have access to thanks to your 7 colorless mana sources, and Matter Reshaper floats into most of the deck. Reality Smasher could join the Dust Stalkers as a more defensively-inclined boss, and Kozilek's Shrieker is a nicely costed attacker with a colorless firebreathing effect to hit hard when you don't have anything to cast.

I still think you should consider Reaver Drone for the cheap cost that can trigger everything and you can give him haste with your Forerunner of Slaughter. Another black Devoid creature that I like is Kozilek's Shrieker. It fits your mana pool and being able to pump him for a single waste instead of two like most others while also granting him Menace so he can hit home is pretty powerful. I actually like it better than Vile Aggregate since you only need mana to make him big if your creatures get picked off and Menace can be as good or better than Trample. You are also more creature heavy than spells so there's no need to save leftover mana since there isn't much to use it on their turn anyway. You could also maybe sideboard Unnatural Endurance with your open slots there to get to 15 and it's a great devoid trick to Regenerate from burn or just get another 2 damage through while triggering Molten Nursery and Nettle Drone.

I know that Kolaghan's Command in there is good, but I'd drop it for something Devoid.

But that's enough suggestions from me, I already hate your version of my devoid deck because mine doesn't have access to Black and this is shaping up to be quite powerful :)

Also, if you Crumble to Dust, I'm putting back in Crumble to Dust... Screw your Ruins of Oran-Rief...

See you Monday ;)

MangaVentFreak13 on Is Menace a deck?

4 years ago

Black messes up the mana base and there really isn't much to add in that direction. But to show that, in black you get Untamed Hunger as a 3 drop enchantment giving menace, and Kozilek's Shrieker, which is another 3 drop that gains menace by tapping a colorless source. Everything else is too expensive. Black also gives access to some nice removal in the shape of Grasp of Darkness, Ruinous Path and Kolaghan's Command which are , and respectively. In addition to that, black/red isn't the easiest to build a cheap mana base around so you would need to play at least a playset of Bloodstained Mire in addition to a playset of Smoldering Marsh. Most people would actually play a playset of both Polluted Delta, Wooded Foothills and 1 of Sunken Hollow and Cinder Glade potentially allowing for a lot of different interactions with Converge, Charms and Commands. However, if you are playing Kozilek's Shrieker then you would need to play colorless sources.

All that to say: Mono red is the best way to go with this, menace only really comes in two and a half colors and those two and half colors make a complex (and painful) mana base to work off of. Also, I am effectively against using enchantments in standard. But I tried to work with it.

Heyo,thanks for the feedback. I replaced Flaying Tendrils by Titan's Presence (colorless and saver removal).Also removed 2x Sky Scourer and added 2x Holdout Settlement. Because of the Crumbling Vestige I never had (around 30 Games) mana problems. Slaughter Drone helped me more then one time two block bigger creatures and Kozilek's Shrieker was surprising often the finisher.Thinking about removing the other two Sky Scourer by Matter Reshaper..
