Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger Discussion

I got Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger.

Elamg, Who Devoures Worlds

Legendary Creature - Ooze

Lifelink, Deathtouch, Devour 2


As you cast Elamg, Who Devoures Worlds, you may sacrifice any number of permanents you control. Each permanent you sacrifice pays for .

When Elamg, Who Devoures Worlds enters the battlefield, each opponent mills X where X is the number of permanents you sacrificed to cast Elamg.


Big gooey boi

So when you are casting Elamg, you can sacrifice permanents, meaning each land can both tap for a color and be sacrificed for . Then, you can exile it to pay for another with Delve. So each land could, in theory, pay for total mana on him.

Then Devour makes him a giant force to meet.

Not the best, but it pins down the inspiration.

Repeat the challenge, please.

Can we get some eldrazi in here? Maybe a Void Winnower? Or a Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, It That Betrays, or even Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre. There are many more op eldrazi, but u get the point

Was wondering if Deflecting Swat can redirect. Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger on cast ability.

If so does it redirect both target effects. If deflecting swat was copied by Kalamax, the Stormsire would it deflect both.

redbarron12 I've thought about that, but two things keep me from cutting it. For one, as an Eldrazi deck the primary goal is beating people down, be it either commander damage or a lot of big attackers (especially if you attach it to something like Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger and start dealing heavy damage to their library as well). Secondly, it's got some synergy outside big beaters: attach it to something like Breaker of Armies if you want to make sure your other creatures can consistently hit face, Conduit of Ruin if you want to rack up that creature discount, Geode Golem if you want to keep some around for easy commander casting, Platinum Angel to make sure you can keep the Angel's advantage, or Thought-Knot Seer to be able to check and limit players' hands each turn. Naturally, the primary aspect is to get big oppressive beaters since that's the core of the deck, but it's got some more-synergistic uses as well. I do appreciate the input though, and if you have anything you'd suggest either in its place or in addition I'm always open to input!

+1 !

As a fellow Xenagos player myself, I have a couple ideas I would love to discuss with you...

  1. You're average CMC is pretty high, even for a xenagos deck. You need to lower it to be able to pressure the table effectively. I would cut these to lower the CMC a bit....

Hellkite Charger, Blightsteel Colossus, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, and Worldspine Wurm

To add back more creatures for synergy, Shaman of Forgotten Ways, Somberwald Sage are both really good.Springbloom Druid along with Wood Elves, Farhaven Elf and Sakura-Tribe Elder can help bring you closer to a Turn 3-4 Xenagos which is what we need.

  1. Land base is solid. There are a few tweaks you can make for utility but not needed. Let me know if you are interested in them.

  2. Ramp - Our goal is a T3-4 Xenagos. Ramp at 4 CMC does little, trust me on this as I have playtested it extensively.

  3. Tempt with Discovery and Triumph of the Hordes - Tempt is bad because you give opponents options, barely ramps you, and there are no good utility lands in the deck, even with my potential additions, this card is bad in this deck. Moreover, opponents usually tutor for strip mine if they are smart. Triumph is better in decks that go wide. By playing 6+ mana for a beater, you rarely will have another 4 mana to play this the same turn. Right now, you're playing a beater, hope it survives on your turn, survives on opponents turns, then doesn't get removed in response to cast of Triumph.

  4. Draw! - You have about 8ish draw sources, you need more. The biggest issue with Xenagos is 2 for 1s, where you try to cast a draw spell and they remove your creature that the draw spell was targetting in response, thereby putting you down 2 cards for their 1.

Beast Whisperer, Harmonize, Lifeblood Hydra (really fun with Berserk, which ironically, is also fun with malignus), Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Life's Legacy (beware of blue player, sac as additional cost to cast, but because it only costs 2, can be used same turn as beater if you ramped prior), Momentous Fall (in response to removal, also beware of blue), Skullclamp (not the best in your build but still worth considering. I run more 1 toughness creatures so its easier to make it work.....and

Greater Good - BEST CARD FOR XENAGOS. Used in response to removal or just whenever. Play a fatty, Xenagos buffs it, swing, sac it, draw a bunch. Profit. Win. GG

Lastly, the red card that came out recently that lets you change the target of a spell if you control you commander, I can't remember the name but that card is great in Xenagos as you can redirect their spot removal, targetted draw, targetted extra turns, and counters counterspells. Works on abilities too (I think?)

I'm still in the process of tweaking my list in general, and adding the new cards that came/coming out.

Proteus Staff returns the creature to the owner's library but lets the controller polymorph, so it should work unless I'm missing something...

I get why Evolutionary Leap wouldn't work, you don't want creatures in your hand (hence, the wise inclusion of Selvala's Stampede and Ilharg, in case they end up there).

As for big creatures, for budget reasons, I don't have access to Ulamog and Blightsteel Colossus. I thought of a fair replacement with It That Betrays. I have a Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger but I'd be missing the cast trigger. I like your inclusion of Worldspine and Moldgraft since they'll leave value once they're inevitably removed. Any other ideas for fatties? Thank you!

Ooh thanks for more suggestions. I think right now I’ll need to playtest to figure out cards I don’t end up liking/using so I can then test out the many cards I have in the maybeboard.

The thing about infect is that there are a couple Blightsteel’s around in my playgroup, so a few smaller infect guys from my end isn’t a huge threat to the group. I’m also not too concerned with being archenemy anyways - I have an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger deck that makes me number 1 threat when I play it, even though it’s not designed for 4 player games.

Hey love the deck, upvoted lol

Here is a question, other than Protean hulk, any other big creatures you’re thinking of putting in? Like I know for my more casual and slower meta I’m thinking of Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger because returning that with this commander or just late game mutate on Ula would be a fun way to win the game.
