Players can't draw cards.
At the beginning of each player's draw step, that player loses 3 life, searches his or her library for a card, puts it into his or her hand, then shuffles his or her library.
Soooo... tell me more about your Maralen of the Mornsong idea! I don't see an EDH with her listed in your decks
As far as Oath of Druids is concerned, I'm speaking generally. Two player or multiplayer it doesn't matter it can cause problems for you, lemme give you a scenario. We're playing each other one on one, right? So you get out your Ulamog and swing at me while there's an Oath of Druids on the field. Well now I've got the option to destroy most/all/enough of my creatures off of your annihilator ability allowing me to use Oath of Druids . As to the actual workings of the card (in case that's what's confusing you) it means that at the beginning of each player's upkeep that player picks an opponent and if they have less creatures on the field than the person they picked then they get to play a creature card. So, it's now my turn and I'm revealing cards from my library until I get a creature. Sucks for you that I play LOTS of big creatures as I'm a mono green guy. So I'm probably dropping Emrakul, the Aeons Torn , Progenitus (yes I play him mono green), Worldspine Wurm something nasty like that. Now against Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre you might be ok because he has annihilator 4 and indestructible plus you're a turn ahead of me, but what if you just have Ulamog's Crusher out? You wanna bet your 8/8 with annihilator 2 against my 10/10 with protection from everything? This may sound kind of extreme, but you have to know who you're playing. If you were playing me, it wouldn't be an extreme case at all, it'd be the norm. You've already said that your friends like to play Lord of the Void so look at it this way. They get Lord of the Void out because of your card, every time they hit you they get one of your creatures (you're running an Eldrazi deck, you don't want them playing with your creatures), and now the creature they took from you can chump block, help slow down your annihilator ability, or use annihilator on you. That's why I advise some means of counteracting Oath of Druids like Beast Within . So what if they play Lord of the Void ? it can't attack until after your next turn, by which time it might be a 3/3 beast. Anyways that's just something to think about. By no means is Oath of Druids bad, but it's much like Maralen of the Mornsong , if you don't build your deck around it your opponent WILL use it against you.
Um. Green, budget-friendly commanders...
Omnath, Locus of Mana , a bunch of basic land search guys, and things that give trample can be pretty cheap.
Ezuri, Renegade Leader elf tribal is a thing. It's probably cheaper than 1000 dollars, at least.
In a similar vein, Balthor the Defiled zombie tribal can wreck some face.
Ob Nixilis, the Fallen and 99 Swamps. You know you want to.
Horobi, Death's Wail can make for some shenanigans.
I've seen Nath of the Gilt-Leaf do broken things.
I have always loved Maralen of the Mornsong as a commander, purely for fun :)
You could run Dark Ritual for turn 1 Maralen of the Mornsong . That can set your draws up even earlier but it also gives your opponents time to find an answer, so you would want protection for maralen.
I'm looking for cards that'll let me search for other cards every turn. An example is Maralen of the Mornsong . Mostly have creature cards at the moment.
Currently i'm having trouble with direct damage and simple don't have some ways to deal with artifacts/enchantments except by Eye of Doom .Please help me with tips and more good control cards :) .
