Rapacious One

Creature — Eldrazi Drone


Whenever Rapacious One deals combat damage to a player, put that many 0/1 colorless Eldrazi Spawn creature tokens onto the battlefield. They have "Sacrifice this creature: Add 1 to your mana pool."

In that case it looks like you've got basically everything else covered. Maaaybe Rapacious One for a creature that people won't block if you promise to give them tokens... maaaybe. That's kind of stretching it though.

First of all, I would either cut Ruric Thar or cut a few noncreature spells, since his ability applies to everyone, and all it takes to bring someone down from 40 to 0 is 7 noncreatures.

I would cut Vexing Shusher and replace it with Spellbreaker Behemoth.

Alongside mana dorks, you probably should use extra lands per turn cards such as Mina and Denn, Wildborn and Azusa, Lost but Seeking.

Siege Behemoth and Arlinn Kord  Flip are nice for getting past pesky chump blockers, should your creatures not have trample handy.

Pathbreaker Ibex, Rapacious One, Balefire Dragon, and technically Deus of Calamity are all cards that benefit from Xenago's pump ability.

To protect your fatties during attacking, Stonehoof Chieftain can help with those with deathtouch or protection from red/green and Breaker of Armies helps by being the "attention stealer".

Malignus makes for a very nice early game threat and beater as well.

One lovely synergy I like to run is Dragon Throne of Tarkir+Heroes' Bane. Sure, my 256/256 gets reduced to a mere doorstop, but much worse things happen afterwards.

You can find my Xenagos deck here. Who knows, you may find some cards you like!

You're joking right?
Emrakul's Hatcher is basically 8 damage for 1 and a red.
Rapacious One is free damage and mana on contact.
Spawnsire of Ulamog is a reusable spawn engine that goes infinite with Mana Echoes
Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre is mill protection and removal as well as a potential way to win.
Skittering Invasion is 10 damage for 2.
Chandras parents is 6 damage for 2 and 2 red that has anti-synergy with Thopter Assembly. Elemental Mastery is a potential maybe however with it being an aura enchantment it's iffy as I can deal with lost creatures with Feldon and to a lesser extent trading post however enchantments are a different story and auras are so easy to deal with. Solemn is a maybe as I have enough sac effects to abuse both triggers and I can abuse it with Trading Post and Feldon. I like Warstorm Surge except that I have to target, I would rather use Impact Tremors as it's quicker, deals it to everyone, and 9 times out or 10 will be doing the same damage as the Surge.

Feels like it needs Ancient Tomb, World Breaker, Rapacious One, and a fleet of filter lands like Mossfire Valley, Fire-Lit Thicket (which can produce colorless mana), and then some subset of Graven Cairns, Wooded Bastion, Cascade Bluffs, Twilight Mire, Rugged Prairie, and Flooded Grove (or all of them if dom has the money for that) again because they basically act as colorless dual lands which can turn other colorless lands into colored mana producers.
I'd cut Gruul War Chant (Eldrazi attacking with annihilator usually means they don't need menace, and you already have both Bedlam and Nylea anyway), Price of Glory (this deck is more of a face beater than land destroyer; your other eldrazi can handle land destruction if needed), Map the Wastes (you have plenty of ramp; MtW just feels like bad ramp over-extending), and then Vesuva, Wasteland, Strip Mine, Nephalia Academy, and some sub-set of basic lands to be replaced with the filter fleet (as lands which you sacrifice for land destruction in a ramp deck is a hell of a double edged sword; the eldrazi themselves can take care of necessary L-D; Forced discard also isnt a big thing in commander unless you play against a leovold player, so the academy is largely an unnecessary tech card)

GoldenDiggle You may want to look into eldrazi spawn tokens if you want a ton of mana-especially Rapacious One
