ChrisKrow on Blue/Black Eldrazi Control

To make a control deck, you will first need to fill the board with little creatures to up your defense, which is something hard for this deck, since the cast cost is really high. i recommend getting a set of Mist Intruder, has flying and a low cast cost. In addition, ,Prophet of Distortion,Sludge Crawler and Salvage Drone make great additions too.

Sargeras on The Eldritch Truth (Bloodborne Eldrazi Theme Deck)

Interesting deck, so +1, I have a few suggestions,

  1. Make sure that the hubs for this deck state both casual and gimmick, that way you don't have to say that you are playing casual, the hubs say it for you! (Just a little thing though)

  2. I get that this deck is RB which means it wants to be aggressive, but you have some shifting themes here, on one hand, you have aggressive beaters that can swing for a ton of damage, and then there Ulamog and Bane of Bala Ged which you will likely never cast in a single game (Good luck casting 7 & 10 drops with 22 lands) My first suggestion would be to cut Ulamog and Bane (I know they are fun but you likely won't cast them) and replace them with 2 more Dust Stalker and 1 more Endless One.

  3. Replace Processor Assault with Flame Slash, slash came from rise of the Eldrazi and does basically the same thing with way less cost.

  4. Behind the Scenes: Skulk would allow creatures like Sludge Crawler to get in for damage and allow you to Ingest cards without having to worry about blockers (they slither around). This would probably come in over Forerunner of Slaughter since the card just doesn't do too much imo.

  5. I'm not a particular fan of tap-lands, Sulfurous Springs would be ideal since you can play cards and effects for both anyway.

maybe you could include some Complete Disregard (it exiles), and some Sludge Crawler, I've seen some Black and UB eldrazi deck work well with exiling opponent creatures, then wasteland strangler to remove another creature. nice deck,+1 as well

Kozilek, the Great Distortion isn't exactly a good tourmanent staple (hasn't seen play since it came out, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger is always better. Submerged Boneyard is not a good dual land, Sunken Hollow and Choked Estuary are better. also, a lot of your eldrazi are very slow. to make it faster, i would recommend 4x Wasteland Strangler 4x Sludge Crawler and 4x Salvage Drone and a couple Fathom Feeder. also, Endbringer is a good finisher. also, more Matter Reshaper is good.

you could also have Thought-Knot Seer and Reality Smasher . also, Swarm Surge as a finisher.

sideboard Void Winnower, and Transgress the Mind.

As far as I'm concerned every deck with a strong vision of how it will win, and how it will stop its Opponents winning, is viable.

As long as you are happy with not coming first at FNM. Although sometimes that is a pleasant result.

You are going to need some early Eldrazi with Ingest to get the most out of Wasteland Strangler. I know you have Transgress the Mind but I believe you will need more than just that.

Sludge Crawler and Culling Drone might be what you need.

An early Creature with Deathtouch would also be useful. You'd be surprised at the tempo advantage that can give you.

It lets you use a Creature as thought it is a destruction spell.

I consider Thought-Knot Seer essentially in this type of deck.

You might want to look at adding Harsh Scrutiny. I run it in a Control deck and the extra hand disruption + Scry is invaluable.

I would suggest that you build a deck so that I can test it and give you further advice.

That's what I find most effective.

I like Sludge Crawler, especially ingest, but I think I like the two small fliers a bit better. I'll think about it. Matter Reshaper doesn't thrill me, mostly because I really like Dominator Drone. Thanks for the suggestions.

Sludge Crawler is actually really good. I'd also consider Matter Reshaper or Wasteland Strangler. Good luck and happy new year.
