Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre Discussion
2 days ago
As a frequent, and at least somewhat experienced, Gitrog player, I would like to lend some advice to you for this deck.
Firstly, I would recommend some combination of Wild Mongrel, Oblivion Crown, Noose Constrictor and Skirge Familiar. These are incredibly powerful ways to get lands into your graveyard, particularly skirge familiar. You should also probably be running some more cards with dredge, particularly Dakmor Salvage.
If you decide to add the cards I mentioned, that opens up some infinite combos. Skirge familiar with Gitrog in play and Dakmor salvage in hand results in infinite mana and card draw, but you will want Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre in there to prevent dying to mill. The other discard outlets result in an infinitely powerful creature, along with infinite draw.

When Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre is put into a graveyard, it's third ability triggers and is put on the stack. Before the graveyard gets shuffled in, you have a chance to respond by casting spells. If you counter the ability, as Summary Dismissal Does, the end result will be the graveyard staying where it is, with Ulamog in it.

Probably a dumb question, but I run a mill deck and I have a card called Summary Dismissal, and I was wondering if that would be an effective counter to Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre and his third ability?

Also the most important cards in his deck were the OG eldrazi titans, who guaranteed he didn't Mill himself out on his wheels.

Alrighty then let's get you all set!
You've got some big things and that's not bad with your commander, but you'll need some cheaper burn spells if Rakdos can really work. With that being said, Lightning Bolt, Lava Spike, Bump in the Night, and Rift Bolt are your best friends. As for land base, try to shy away from basics, but add in as many rakdos duals that don't come in tapped as possible. I'll get you started down below.
While using rakdos, keep in mind that he takes away only colorless mana, so huge eldrazi such as Void Winnower, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Pathrazer of Ulamog, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Desolation Twin and It That Betrays can all go out for free if you play it right.
Furthermore, there are some cards that don't work too well in an aggro build like this and could use an upgrade. Take out:
- Strangling Soot
- Rend Flesh
- Wail of the Nim
- Sire Of Insanity
- Falkenrath Noble
- Maggot Carrier
- Tavern Swindler
- Rakdos Guildgate
- Blood Reckoning
- 4x Swamp
- 4x Mountain
- No Mercy
- Blood Crypt
- Ultimate Price
- Vial Smasher the Fierce
- Mogis, God of Slaughter
- Lord of the Void
- Dragonskull Summit
- Bloodstained Mire
- Command Tower
- Opal Palace
- Graven Cairns
- Shadowblood Ridge
- Leechridden Swamp
- Sulfurous Springs
- Chandra, Torch of Defiance
With these changes as well as the ones mentioned above, you'll be well on your way to a hated deck! Good luck!

Thank you very much for your input , yes I plan on using my commander as a major part of the infinite combo. The three pieces I need are Skullclamp, Ashnod's Altar, and The Locust God. because you draw a card, clamp a insect you get(drawing 2 cards and getting 2 more insects), then you sacrifice on insect to the Ashnod's for more mana and clamp the second insect from the original clamp. I can do this to draw and play my deck and once I draw Mycosynth Lattice I have infinite colored mana. Then I use my commanders loot ability to pitch away my Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre to shuffle in my graveyard to rinse and repeat.

If I had to pick cards other than land I think should go they would be Archetype of Imagination, Frost Titan, Hornet Queen&Hydra Broodmaster unless you added some token doublers like Doubling Season, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and maybe Lorthos, the Tidemaker but I can see him working ok. Rishkar, Peema Renegade can just become a cheaper mana dork however if you keep him I like Avenger of Zendikar. I would also take out Worldspine Wurm you dont need multiple things that stop milling and you have Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre already. Leyline of Anticipation is cute but Alchemist's Refuge is better so if you want that affect more often change leyline into Crop Rotation. Sandwurm Convergence should go for the same reason as Hornet Queen&Hydra Broodmaster. Clash of Wills should be Spell Pierce dissalow is cool but with all the 1 and 2 drop counter spells just use those... Swan Song is another I forgot. Id also rather have a Pongify or Rapid Hybridization over Plummet every time.
Drain Power seems awesome... Until you realize that your opponents can just tap all their land in response and you get nothing.
