Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger Discussion

thijmnesoy It's ok your English is perfect! Thank you for the tips, I'm going to try to run Eldrazi Conscription and Kozilek, the Great Distortion and see where that goes. If that works out I'll pick up Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger.
Kozilek is a no-brainer here, he's a big boy, he refills my hand, he lets me dump mana, and helps me protect Neheb with the discard-counter effect.

Yes, you do run cards that fit into stax decks, that doesn't make this one, I run Sol Ring in my Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger deck, you know what else runs Sol Ring? Kess, Dissident Mage storm. Now my eldrazi tribal deck is totally storm, and I will claim it is one.
You can disagree all you want, but the facts doesn't change. If you lookup storm, my cards would be to find on almost any storm list.

I've been testing against Tron a bit more and it's still a struggle post-board even with 4 Ceremonious Rejection. Rejection is amazing, but Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger is a very difficult card to beat. And because of Sanctum of Ugin, they have a lot of ways to find Ulamog. My current approach of trying to counter everything they play after they get Tron online isn't really working. I could try Fulminator Mage or more Field of Ruin or Molten Rain, but I've never found land destruction to fast enough to matter. And Surgical Extraction doesn't seem reliable enough.

So with Cloudstone Curio out of the deck, do you think that puts cards like Peregrine Drake, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, and Kozilek, Butcher of Truth under scrutiny? One of the major reasons to include them as a top end to begin with was because of how they are able to combo with Curio, so how effective is their role now considering that they don't work with Kiki?
There are still a lot of ways for the deck to bounce them back to your hand multiple times. On a number of occasions I've gone off with Ancestral Statue, cast Ulamog, bounced it back to my hand with Shrieking Drake, cast Ulamog again, bounced it back with the Statue, then cast it a third time. Exiling 6 permanent in one go is usually adequate for clearing the way to kill a player with Animar.
On the down side though, the Eldrazi are awkward to get in an opening hand. Are there cheaper options that aren't as reliant on the Statue to be viable earlier in the game?
All three cards are still great in the deck, but since the lack of the Curio removes a number of the lines of play that they were normally a part of I figure that it is at least worth throwing the question out there for consideration.
And as another thought, does Spellseeker make Grapeshot a viable inclusion in the deck? It allows 3/4 of your 3 CMC tutor creatures to be able to fetch up a win-con after going off with the Statue, and with the number of spells Animar can cast on a non-combo turn the Grapeshot would still make a decent removal option for clearing out annoying creatures like Hushwing Gryff that would otherwise be tough for Animar to get rid of.

I like it. Your recursion package is solid. Have you tried running Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger for additional artifact/enchantment removal?

Although the mill strategy is a very fun one to pull off it is also very difficult. Milling 100ish cards in edh isn't very efficient unless you are playing decks like Phenax. I am also running tatyova and decided to go with the draw a ton of cards and drop titans on my opponents turns type theme. A very fun interaction in my decklists is jin gitaxis, Manabond, either Library of Leng or Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar With Tatyova, Benthic Druid on the field gets pretty dumb pretty fast. Also, cards like Alchemist's Refuge with Seedborn Muse allows you to play scary stuff on your opponents turn, like casting a Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger in response to combat exiling 2 perms because he was cast like a boss. Anyway here is my list, it's more on the pricey side but I had a lot of the cards already. Feel free to +1 mine and I'll do the same (http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/ole-taty-land-fatty/)

Thanks for the feedback, I agree Chandra's Ignition is much more potent compared to Rolling Earthquake but the inclusion is mostly to deal with low toughness creature that are pervasive in competitive metas. Also, my list has a low creature density to make full use of Chandra's Ignition, It would feel bad to only burn everyone for 4 or if someone removes my only creature that i'm targeting with it. I've considered Sin Prodder,as creature with good stats and potential to become card advantage or increase mana production with Neheb for the turn but it's more for a slow attrition game or if you're running the Big spells Neheb which Sin Prodder can be really punishing with Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger.
I greatly appreciate your suggestion as well as taking the time to check out my primer on Neheb! :)
