KvotheKingkiller man, I really need to fix that description lol
What I really meant to say is that context matters when you decide when to pull the trigger; you can't just let everyone give you lands and kill them the next turn, you have to use a bit of tact. Prosperity as a win con to kill everyone at the table is still an option, but it should be considered a last resort. If you do it consistently people will start focusing you. If however, say, the control player is making the game grind to a halt and people are just wishing for the game to end, you can use prosperity as a mercy game-reset. You'll still win, but people will be glad that you won that way. Another thing to remember is that everything for the most part is fair game in a 1v1 as long as you don't act like it is planned. Let's say you, for example, buffed the hippo to a 21/21 and killed the last player in a 1v1. Usually that would be considered an awesome comeback rather than you planning behind everyone's back. To win with Prosperity you have to be surprised when it happens (and usually you will be), otherwise you are just planning behind everyone's back.
My whole philosophy with this deck is that from the start of the game I am legitimately just trying to make everyone have a good time, but if later on when the fun starts to die down I find a way to end the game I will, however most of the time people will end up decking themselves by choosing to draw cards when offered. The reason why I like this deck is because you are legitimately killing the players with kindness, not plotting behind their backs

Yeah EpicFreddi, I see what you're saying, but I've never had an issue with a stalled game. Usually what happens is, whichever player is knocking out the other players, that player will have a strong enough board state to finish me off too.
I do have to be careful about milling people out with Prosperity or Skyscribing if the game goes on for very long though, because I'm giving everyone so much card draw. The first time I ever played this deck, I had Noble Benefactor in the deck, got massively attacked and had to block with everything I had to stay alive including Noble Benefactor. I tutored up Prosperity with it and used it my nest turn to mill everyone out. I almost didn't do it, but I let everyone know that I could, and to a man they egged me on to make the play, even though I really didn't want to.

I really like this deck. It definitely puts a target on your back since people like drawing cards, but not losing life for doing so. You may consider adding Propaganda just to keep people from attacking you. I was confused at the addition of Glistening Oil at first, but then I realized you can put it on your commander and kill VERY quickly, great interaction. The deck looks pretty tuned, but if you were looking for different options, you might consider Iron Maiden or Viseling so they get damaged based on the number of cards in hand or extra forced card draw like Fascination, Prosperity, Minds Aglow, Kami of the Crescent Moon, or Dictate of Kruphix. May even consider Past in Flames to get back those instants and sorceries in the late game. Just suggestions, but again, it looks pretty good as is so I'm not even sure what you would take out.

Jace's Sanctum or Iceberg? I think it will fit in with your ramp spells. Recall? Sphinx's Tutelage for another end game? Syncopate or Dissipate or Spell Blast or Power Sink? I think some more draw wouldn't hurt anything, consider these - Tolarian Winds? Windfall? Stroke of Genius? Prosperity? Read the Runes? Also, where the hell is Guile? That card makes me want to play Baral, even if it's a shittier Leyline of the Void or Rest in Peace. Hope this help <3

ELdrazi are fun and before they nerfed the Kruphix deck by banning the prophet I packed as many strong Eldrazi in my deck as well. Here are some thoughts to help tweak this deck.
I think you might want to find a place for Seedborn Muse, Sword of Feast and Famine and Seedguide Ash. The muse will untap your lands each during every untap step allowing you at every end step to tap all your lands and bank the mana. If the sword does damage you are untapping land again so you can tap out and bank the mana if you know you are going to hit with it. The Seedguide will be target for exile since it puts any three forests (not just basics) on your battlefield when it dies. 40 lands is a lot you might be able to cut a couple for these cards.
Instead of Prosperity I would use Blue Sun's Zenith because you can target one person (yourself prefered) and it shuffles back into your deck. Odds are you are not going to generate enough mana to deck your opponents and you might even deck yourself. It is far better to just draw 10+ cards and keep them than to let your opponent keep his best 7 that he drew to deal with your board. Also consider Interpret the Signs with your high mana curve you should be able to replenish your hand pretty well with one card.
Finally how about Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds to thin your deck of lands so you can draw your good stuff faster. Alchemist's Refuge would be an excellent addition to this deck. The ability to flash in an eldrazi during an opponents end phase and allowing you to attack with the annihilator ability is absolutely devastating. Scroll Rack would be an excellent use to take the extra lands you have in your hand and exchange them for better cards (plus with the search lands you can shuffle down the lands) or you can set up your card draw with Interprit the Signs or abuse it with Nissa to get your killer eldrazi out for free.

I never played group hug myself, but I have seen a few into action. These cards I can still remember which you did not select (yet):
Do these suggestions help you in a desired direction?

Even if it also makes your opponent draw, I think Prosperity, Skyscribing and Fascination could be on the list.
They can be played in Nekusar, the Mindrazer, Leovold, Emissary of Trest or used with Spirit of the Labyrinth and Notion Thief.

SuperBacon12, I have considered Fascination for the deck, but I already have Prosperity which costs 1 less for the same effect, and Skyscribing, which cost the same but has the Forecast ability which I really enjoy using. I guess I could add Fascination as a third, but I already have so much card draw in the deck, I don't really need any more.
