Any time you could mulligan and Serum Powder is in your hand, you may remove all the cards in your hand from the game, then draw that many cards. (You can do this in addition to taking mulligans.)
Serum Powder Discussion
2 days ago
Ineffable is extremely powerful. Serum Powder means that you can start the game with all three in play. On the other hand, having ingest on 12/12 eldrazi is inconsequential or a -15 loyalty ability on a planeswalker that starts at 2 and can only +1 is equally inconsecuential.
Overall, there are few ways to improve these cards. For one, make the creatures smaller and cost something like 4 mana, representing the fact they were just beaten and recovering.

Serum Powder , but honestly whats the point of casually playing vs this deck if you turn 1 combo or flop the rest of the game

JKRice The issue I see with Idyllic Tutor is the same one I saw with Ethereal Usher ; just too slow and clunky to warrant a spot. The main way you find Hive Mind game 1 is to mulligan till you have it utilizing the London Mulligan + Serum Powder .
I can see putting big mana creatures in the main, I am unsure as to what I would want to take out for them though. I have the ones I thought would be the best in the sideboard for matchups like UW Control or Jund where the combo can be countered or taken apart with a timely discard spell.

Oh, hey. I just remembered that Serum Powder exists.

You can get more consistent by using 4x Street Wraith , 4x Serum Powder , 1x Gitaxian Probe to have a better chance to draw your lose condition. Mishra's Bauble is good too, but it might slow down the combo too much. Edge of Autumn has potential, but you'd have to rework the manabase to support it.

SynergyBuild thanks for sharing! I've brewed a lot of red Eldrazis on my own but never got to anything satistfying. Didn't know there was an 'archetype' based on this idea!
I see them all using Serum Powder . Is it only to 'combo' with Eternal Scourge ? Is IYO this interaction absolutely necessary for the deck to work? Couldn't we replace Powder with Blood Moon or MB Abrade / Lightning Bolt ?

Hi everyone, I was thinking about the state of Eldrazi Tron right now. I'm often switch between regular Green Tron and E-Tron because I'm lacking the will and the money to buy the last two copy of Karn Liberated and the second copy of Ugin, the Spirit Dragon . When it comes to E-Tron I own the whole shell and I even add some spice of my own with equipments like Sword of Fire and Ice and Sword of Light and Shadow .
I'm not too informed about the current modern state and what is the E-tron placement. I really dislike the Serum Powder version and I'd like to know some opinions about this archetype that I prefer over traditional G-Tron.

If you need help with knowing how much/what ramp to use, you might want to check out https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/brewer-s-minute-ramp-math
I am not an expert in mono, but for you I recommend adding:
Myriad Landscape can go in almost any edh deck
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is solid in any one- or two-colour deck
Lake of the Dead has a downside, but you won't care when you're using it (trust me)
Petrified Field to protect valuable lands.
I'm not sure how I feel about Temple of the False God , but it is an EDH classic.
Other mono ramp
I ended up finding so many mono ramp cards I thought I might as well make a more full list.
Solemn Simulacrum is a good catch-all
Nirkana Revenant is good in the right deck
Bog Witch is kind of weird, but has fringe uses
I haven't thought hard, but you might be able to do some flicker shenanigans with Priest of Gix
Worst case, an edh deck can always load up on rocks. These are some of the best ones for mono black
Sol Ring every edh deck should include this
Pillar of Origins for tribal decks
In most games, these do the same thing: Commander's Sphere , Cryptolith Fragment Flip, Cultivator's Caravan , Darksteel Ingot , Hierophant's Chalice , Honor-Worn Shaku , Mana Prism , Manalith , Orazca Relic , Phyrexian Totem , Powerstone Shard , Pristine Talisman , Seer's Lantern , Serum Powder , Skull of Ramos , Sol Grail , Spectral Searchlight , Vessel of Endless Rest , Victory Chimes , and Chromatic Lantern
Thought Vessel if you fill your hand
Chrome Mox is usually worth the card disadvantage
Mox Amber if you usually have your commander/a legendary thing out
Mox Diamond if lands in your graveyard is a good thing
Mox Opal if you have 2+ extra artifacts
Black Market is good if you tend to sacrifice/kill a lot of creatures
Liliana of the Dark Realms is nice with proliferate, and makes sure you don't miss land drops in the mid/late-game
Sword of the Animist is best with one-mana creatures, and if you attack often, but might be justified even if not
Carnival of Souls is fun with some creature-based combos
Crypt of Agadeem works, but only if you consistently have 4+ creatures in the graveyard
Phyrexian Tower eats your creatures
Cabal Coffers is a staple
Cabal Stronghold is great if you can't afford many nonbasics, and might be good enough besides.
