EldarOP on Kozilek EDH

SpacemanFromHell Thanks for the feedback! As for budget tips;

Cutting the eldrazi Titans (other than the commander) will save you a lot of money.

Cards like Mana Vault and Thran Dynamo can be exchanged for cheaper mana rocks, at the expense of slowing your mana down.

Eye of Ugin and Eldrazi Temple can be expensive but they have great synergy with eldrazi and this deck plays quite a lot of them. They could be replaced by any land that gives <> mana, as is true for the other lands.

All Is Dust is expensive but it is one of the best board wipes in my opinion as it gets around hexproof/indestructible/regenerate. (Not to mention it being one of the few colorless sorceries.)

For creatures you can switch some of the more expensive ones such as Platinum Angel for cheaper ones like Desolation Twin , Ulamog's Crusher etc.

soulwarden11 Well there's another card that will have to go in. I also just built my younger brother his first EDH deck running Titania, Protector of Argoth, since he enjoyed playing Yisan so much, and that would kill in his as well. Plus its about 50$ cheaper than Crucible of Worlds which is super nice.Yeah I don't know why I didn't think of low cost legendary creatures... duh. I usually flip stuff into sphinxes, a Tidespout Tyrant, Platinum Angel, or the Stormtide Leviathan and Archetype of Imagination combo. I thought about doing Eldrazis but I know I'll be targeted by everyone the rest of the game. And no kidding haha we seem to have VERY similar playstyles!

You can't pay life that you don't have, so a Platinum Angel will allow you to survive activating the Aetherflux Reservoir when you're at exactly 50 life, but it won't allow you to activate the Reservoir when you have 49 or less life.

stimme dem zu, ergaenzend wuerde ich Sulfurous Blast und Sire Of Insanity rausnehmen. Platinum Angel (bringt es so gut wie nie) brauchst du nicht aus dem Sideboard, und Hoarding Dragon auch nicht.

Was du auf jeden Fall reinnehmen solltest ist Chromatic Lantern und Kolaghan's Command. Ansonsten ein bisschen was wo man oefter angreifen kann (Relentless Assault, Savage Beating).

Murder wrd ich durch Hero's Downfall ersetzen.

Dann wuerde als finisher Mob Rule noch ganz gut passen.

I couldn't decide between Dramatic Entrance and Quicksilver Amulet and IMO it doesn't really matter. Dramatic Entrance can be a quite crucial if you play it without your enemy knowing you can play a fatty. I guess I should try both variants and see what's better.

Mind Stone is definitely a good choice.

Since it happens quite often that you run out of cards Rishkar's Expertise can help you out. Had some games were this card saved my ass. Same with Lure. Mostly I won't need it, but I had some games where i couldn't break through the enemy lines (or he had Platinum Angel or something) and he couldn't kill me because of Elderscale Wurm. With Lure I had no problem of now the deck has 66 cards. I can always kick Rishkar's Expertise and Lure, but for now I'll keep 'em in.

Pheardemons on Counters, Wurmcoil, Titan, then Ugin. Beat that.

momo_2004 thanks for the comment. Believe it or not I've been thinking about that. Decks that I need Platinum Angel for generally can take it out very quickly. I've been thinking of Platinum Emperion, or possibly another beater and move the angel or emperion to the sideboard. Thanks man!

Personally, I'd cut Platinum Angel. In my build of the deck it is just too fragile to take up a card slot and drain out your mana pool for a turn only to immediately die to most removal. I prefer Platinum Emperion as it is much beefier, not dying to Dismember from opposing decks such as Eldrazi Tron, along with Galvanic Blast in Affinity.
