Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger Discussion

Ebro on I know this isnt legal ( Slivdrazi Monstrosity )

To be completely honest, I was already playing with an idea similar to this, maybe you could tell me how possible it would be? My idea involves using slivers as an indestructible mana base ( Sliver Hivelord Manaweft Sliver Gemhide Sliver ) while using Child of Alara as the commander to keep blowing up everyone’s lands. Then use my sliver land base to drop something like Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger or It That Betrays to just wreck everyone. I will be posting this up soon.

I think you need more fog, as the mill game is a long game.

All your Enchantments will eventually mill your Opponent, but you have to keep your life total up in the meantime.

A board wipe might help your fog - some good ones in such as AEtherspouts and River's Rebuke

You are correct that burn is a problem. It may just be a matchup that you can't win, although I do think it will be a popular entry point for a lot of players.

If you add for Teferi, Time Raveler he will slow them down, but will ultimately weaken this deck.

Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger might also be worth thinking about. He's bloody annoying as a mill card.

All the best with this build.

Sorry mate, I keep having more thoughts the more I test against this deck.

I would also put some Disallow and maybe some Essence Scatter in your Sideboard.

I am convinced that Disallow is better than Dissolve due to the ability to counter any, well, ability.

Dependent on the deck, of course. Some decks would rather Scry a card away - yours might be one.

Essence Scatter will stop things like Walking Ballista

Proposed Sideboard

4x Disallow
3x AEtherspouts
3x Invasive Surgery
3x Essence Scatter
2x Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

Then adjust based on local meta.

Keep Turn Aside in mind if people keep destroying your stuff.

I know they are slower, but have you considered a couple of Evolving Wilds to help with Delve?

I notice that you don't have a Sideboard yet. Invasive Surgery would be good against Control / Thoughtseize

If you can afford him, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger would help settle games that go long.

AEtherspouts or River's Rebuke would be another excellent Sideboard card, this time against Hardened Scales - knock all those pesky +1/+1 counters off.

Emrakul I think is usually sideboard tech versus control matchups, typically Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger is a safer bet for being a dominant finisher in your main. Both are good though, can probably just have fun with some mix of the two.

TypicalTimmy on Deck Archetype: Big Mana

3 weeks ago

I was watching THIS episode if Game Knights / Command Zone about budget decks, and at the 40:00 mark they begin talking about a budget deck Archetype called "Big Mana", in which you cheap out gigantic spells way before you normally would be able to. Thus includes both spells with insanely high CMC such as Aminatou's Augury or difficult to cast spells because of color requirements such as Conflux .

This different from traditional ramp because you are not focusing on land drops and mana acceleration so much as finding ways to cheat spells into play.

For example, a See the Unwritten could land you an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger , especially if you put it on top of your library .

It's more about generating the biggest and most absolute value from your mana to put yourself much farther ahead than where you should reasonably be.

As for the definition, it could be alog the lines of:

  • Big Mana: A deck, primarily seen in EDH, where the player focuses on spells with very high and difficult mana costs with means to cheat these spells into play well ahead of curve. It focuses on tempo and ramp to achieve this goal.

Just wondering if you've played with Emrakul, the Aeons Torn at all. I've played with the smaller version of emrakul, but found that with one Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger , and karn + Mycosynth that I really didn't need her. You might consider cutting her for the fourth oblivion stone, or something from your sideboard if you want to add O-Stone there to Karn wish for.

Silent Arbiter would work great as while, i wouldn't exile it when Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger enters the battlefield. It is always good to have basic lands in the deck, it helps avoid being mana screwed from cards like Ruination . this would also give you a reason to keep Walker of the Wastes . honestly, you only need one planeswalker which is Ugin, the Ineffable , the others are not as useful to you in an eldrazi deck, though all have great loyalty abilities, aren't as useful, and become targeted very quickly
