Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger Discussion

Hi Chiberia, thanks for the comment! I didn't know about this cool combo, and seems super unexpected and fun. I'm afraid I will not include it though in the deck, here's why:

  • The combo works only if both pieces are available, and I don't run the tutors necessary to make them reliably be in my hand. This means that the cards must be already good and in them on their own, but unfortunately, they aren't. Leyline of the Void directly goes against my principal win conditions, that is tapping creatures like Mortivore with Phenax, God of Deception's ability. If those cards get exiled, the yards would be all empty (apart from mine, though I don't plan , and so my possibility to win.

  • On the other hand, Helm of Obedience has the problem in being an effect with an X cost. My deck doesn't ramp much, so investing all my mana on such an X activated ability is pretty much worthless, considering I would most often than not flip something useless or just not flip anything at all. The chance of flipping an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger once in my life isn't really appealing to me.

  • The two cards both cost about 15$ and 20$ respectively. Another reason to not risk including them, even though the combo is able to kill an opponent point blank.

Upvoting purely for title.

But in all seriousness, rad deck dude. Everything looks really neatly balanced out, my only suggestion would maybe be Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger just cos it gives you another fatty and excellent removal.

Seriously good work!

Hi. Looks like I posted after you on Commander Deck Help. The thought police will get me if I don't post card recommendations on your deck.

...that would be your endgame. For the early and midgame:

So, your gameplan would be to play Aminatou on T3, play creatures that kill things/draw cards when they enter, blink them with Aminatou repeatedly to kill opponent's things, draw into counterspells, and generally destroy their will to live. Once you have a comfortable lock, +1 Aminatou and put an eldrazi titan on top, polymorph a draw creature into it.

As you said, the deck loses to Leyline of the Void but any similar effect, with Rest in Peace being the worst, will shut down the deck as well. As such I'd recommend Scour from Existence, Karn Liberated, and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger to permanently deal with the problem or the less permanent but equally viable answers of Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Universal Solvent, and Unstable Obelisk. There's also the more specific and/or slower options of Argentum Armor, Gate to Phyrexia, Lux Cannon, and Phyrexian Tribute, with that last one seeming like a surprisingly decent possibility for the deck.

On another note, I'd put more board wipes in and Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, and the oft forgotten Slum Reaper to profit off Yahenni more or I'd swap them out for Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder. Given the reason you made this deck, I know you don't wanna do that, but he'd also be a decent addition to the maindeck as another token generator.

True. I bring up ulamog because of pillow fort and control decks.

I don't know what your meta is but control is pretty heavy at my LGS from Brago, King Eternal to Angus Mackenzie.

And I've been playing my mono green Savala since I pulled her in pack on draft night when conspiracy take the crown came out.

My preferred wincon is playing Temur Sabertooth and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger bouncing ulamog and recasting it to Exile all my opponents permanents.

Followed by playingAkroma's Memorial and Shaman of Forgotten Ways. Then activating its ability to make my opponents life 0. I prefer this because it gets around lifegain and cards like Solitary Confinement and MacKenzie's ability.

Add Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger With infinite mana and Temur Sabertooth you can Exile all of your opponents permanents.

even if you can't win that turn it's pretty hard to come back from having your entire board exiled away.
