In order of importance

  1. Set up the custom categories - It makes improving the deck a ton more efficient

  2. If you are going shenanigans then there's a few good options that youre missing

  3. You have Counterspell but not Mana Drain ? you need more protection, Sen brings heat..even if itsnot deserved...although youre also bringing stax so you'll sorta deserve it :p

  4. why is Quasiduplicate in?

LukeEffe on Eldrazi vs. Tron

Flooremoji U-Tron is the reason I started playing tron. I already have a solid build of that one but in "my meta" (friend's house and LGS) it is way too slow. I'm currently experimenting with the new WAR cards like Ugin, the Ineffable and the ovious Karn, the Great Creator + Mycosynth Lattice combo. Karn tgc is also very good to free some slots by placing for instance Mindslaver or big hit finishers in the sideboard for more control-ish stuff.

WizardOfTheNorthernCoast I think Blood Moon would be a sort of suicidal move since it cuts you off of colorless mana. Maybe a Damping Sphere hits E-Tron or Red Tron a lot less than the traditional G-Tron. But I don't really know if it could work.

Dischord If I'm being honest, Tron lands aren't really worth it. I've never managed to assemble Tron organically, and the times I did assemble it was by using tutors, which is an option if the game is super slow but I wouldn't say it's good. I used to run Crystal Vein & Zhalfirin Void but swapped them for lands that better fits my meta. You can certainly run them as great budget alternative. I will most likely move away from Tron once I get my hands on some of the more expansive lands.

Winter Orb has won me several games and is in my opinion the most potent form of stax in the deck. I also used to think it would screw us over but boy was I wrong. This deck runs so much mana rocks that even without Karn, the Great Creator , an early Winter Orb really helps you get ahead of your opponents.

I have yet to test Ugin's Nexus but it does seem like a pretty good card with Karn, the Great Creator or Emrakul, the Promised End . I'll try to find a way to fit it in the deck alongside Mindslaver & Prototype Portal and will update you on how it performs, thanks for the idea!

Are the tron lands worth running in Kozilek? I personally don't run them in my build because it's really difficult to get them all out on the battlefield at the same time. For budget replacements, I'd suggest running Crystal Vein , Thespian's Stage , and Zhalfirin Void over the tron lands.

Also, is Winter Orb good? I feel like it would screw you over more than your opponents since you need to ramp a lot to overrun the table. If you want synergy with Karn, the Great Creator like you said Winter Orb was there for, I would run a copy of Ugin's Nexus instead. Not only does it help you by stopping people from using extra turn spells, it has really cool and obscure additional utility! For one, you can use Karn's [-2] loyalty ability to recast Ugin's Nexus for a few more extra turns (with a sacrifice outlet, like Phyrexia's Core for example), and for Kozilek, a few more extra turns can let you swing in for easy Commander damage lethal. Another cool synergy with Ugin's Nexus is with Emrakul, the Promised End . Since Emrakul lets your opponent take an "extra turn", with Ugin's Nexus out on the battlefield, they can't take that extra turn, and you have essentially used Mindslaver on them!

You seem to be running two copies of Voltaic Key ... I don't think that's allowed in EDH.

If you're playing Mono-Blue good stuff, I highly suggest Mystic Remora as a source of early card advantage.

I also suggest running Counterbalance in conjunction with Sensei's Divining Top and Jace, the Mind Sculptor .

Preordain is good in conjunction with Ponder .

Windfall is good, like your Timetwister with Narset, Parter of Veils .

Clever Impersonator , Stunt Double and Phyrexian Metamorph are better than Clone . You should consider them.

If you've got the budget for Timetwister , Invoke Prejudice is pretty stupid good.

I think Cyclonic Rift is better than Nevinyrral's Disk .

Deserted Temple has REALLY good interactions with Thawing Glaciers . You should consider running it. Also, I think a basic Island is better than Halimar Depths .

In mono-blue, you might want to consider Back to Basics .

If you're running Academy Ruins , I suggest Mindslaver . It's a... good combo.

I think Blast Zone is better than Powder Keg .

I don't think you should run Bonehoard , because your general counters the first equip activation.

If you want to run Ancestral Vision , I suggest As Foretold . As Foretold also has the added benefit of being able to cast a counter spell for free on each opponent's turn.

It depends on how much you feel you need to hold up counter magic, but I think Stroke of Genius is better than Mind Spring , if only because you can cast it on an opponent's end step.

Strip Mine is useful as a 1-of effect to take out The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale or other obnoxious lands. I don't think you need the Wasteland as well; you may have more luck with just a basic Island , especially if you choose to run Back to Basics .

Mana Maze is good in mono-blue decks, as is Sapphire Medallion .

Consecrated Sphinx is good as a value blue card. The card advantage is just nuts.

Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise are great for late-game card draw.

Good luck with deck building!

Deck seems...okay overall? Could still use some optimization, but you've got some neat tech.

Your interaction seems relatively lacking here - You're running Disallow and Arcane Denial , neither of which really sees any cEDH play, but no Spell Pierce , Dispel , Delay , or even Counterspell proper.

It lacks Timetwister (I'd expect it given that you ARE playing Tabernacle, so price doesn't seem to be a concern) and I'm not sure why Mindslaver is in here. Shrine of the Forsaken Gods should be a Strip Mine , and I'm honestly rather astonished at the lack of powerful stax pieces such as Grafdigger's Cage and friends.

(I also generally don't tag my decks as a primer until, you know, the primer is written, but...)

hey lifemtg - Trips are looking good. A few thoughts before tomorrow...

High level: you're honing in on some good strategies, I think if you tighten them up you'll have a really fun deck. Karn's Temporal Sundering is intriguing - hitting multiple players is powerful. Maybe add more extra turns? Or, cards that support this general strategy like Paradox Haze and Mindslaver .

I also like where you're headed with blink / ETB (adding Alley Evasion). You've got Sphinx Summoner, Sharuum, Treasure Mage, etc... I'd consider adding more blink.

Building up other players' hands is risky, but that's what Trips want right? Have you considered adding wheels like Windfall ? (also, suggest replacing one-time Vision Skeins with recurring Temple Bell or similar.)

Last, here are my recommendations for cuts:

Trinket Mage fetches Sol Ring and nothing else

Finale of Glory , meh. Play someone else's!

Perplex is counterproductive.

My Trips deck isn't trying to do what yours does (and it's not budget) but feel free to skim and see if there's anything of interest in there.

Great deck name! I like what you've put together. I've been updating my U Tron deck to include Ugin and his toolbox as well. Bottled Cloister + Ensnaring Bridge in your side board is a pretty great lockdown. It's not something U-Tron can normally consider, but paired with Walking Ballista , it's though to beat. It's a great defensive backup to the Lattice. Mindslaver in the side is another great option, since you aren't running it in the main yet you are running Academy Ruins . Witchbane Orb gives you hexproof, which is great against burn and discard.
