Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre Discussion
5 days ago
Thanks for the help codach, I really apreciate it.
I was thinking of picking up Giant Adephage and Crested Sunmare the next time I go to the card store. About my budget, I don't really want to spend over $20 on a card unless it makes/breaks a deck (like Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre in my Rakdos, Lord of Riots deck), so buying Archangel of Thune is probably not going to happen anytime soon. As well, if I continue improving this deck I will probably pick up Chord of Calling, Darien, King of Kjeldor and Primal Vigor.
The only problem with removing Geist-Honored Monk is I would be removing flying tokens, which I desperately need to deal with flying commander damage. It seems like a real issue when going up against a deck like my Rakdos, Lord of Riots deck, which consistently pings me for 6.
All of that is dependent on if I continue building this deck, but I might end up morphing it into a Ghave, Guru of Spores deck (black adds so much to the table!) I was thinking of tearing this deck apart and building something along the lines of this deck: EDH Mycomancy, a moist magic...

My version of this deck is a lot different from yours so you might disagree with some of this, but here is what I would remove. Lay Claim just isn't worth the 7 mana, and it looks like you have a lot of stuff that accomplishes the same goal. Elixir of Immortality is probably in here for a particular match-up, right? Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre and anything else with his last ability would probably accomplish this same goal. Jhoira's Timebug, Rift Elemental, Shivan Sand-Mage, Timebender, and Clockspinning are pretty slow. Generally, it's better to run cards which delay the game instead of time counter removal because they accomplish the same goal and are also usable when you're just behind. I'm not convinced Turn / Burn is really value, but I've also never tried it. In general, I think you have too many suspend targets and not enough ways to protect them or Jhoira herself. None of this is really meant as critisism; it looks like your deck is responding pretty directly to your playgroup, but if I were cutting that's where I'd cut.

Thanks SlavicGhaespar and Venomous08, I appreciate the advice! When I was building the deck, all the creatures that seemed the most useful were wizards so I kind of just ran with it. If you were thinking of me adding Coat of Arms or other similar cards, I'm not sure it's necessary or the direction I want to take the deck in. But if you have creatures in mind that you think would be better than any of the creatures I have, I would love to hear about them!
Herald of Anguish is definitely a card I've been considering, and I'll give it a try. I think Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre is worth considering too, but I feel it should be said that this combo kind of prevents me from even being able to mill myself (at least to lose this way) because I can't actually draw cards. I believe the rules say that if you would draw a card when there are no cards in your library, then you lose but it doesn't say much about revealing cards from the top of your library and putting them into your hand. Still, Ulamog could be useful if not just to shuffle my graveyard into my library to recover those cards and keep the card advantage going. Again, I appreciate the insight, and hope y'all are enjoying the C17 deckbuilding as much as I am!

another good card to add could be Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre

ThatAudioGuy, the idealized version of this deck runs a single copy of each titan, replacing the second Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger with Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre and Eldrazi Devastator with Kozilek, Butcher of TruthI'm going to replace Kozilek's Channeler and Breaker of Armies with 2 more copies of Conduit of RuinI'll probably also replace Endbringer, Thought-Knot Seer and Oblivion Sower with 3 more It That BetraysAnd finally replace 4x Gruesome Slaughter with 4x All Is Dust and 4 times Scour from Existence with 4x Titan's Presence. But a part of me also just runs to run an army of 1x ROE eldrazi + the Titans.

Sacrifice the wurm to either draw loads of cards and search for a better creature. Next use survival of the fittest to search for ulamog or other eldrazi, then repeat dumping in ulamog in the graveyard. Everything shuffles back in and you can use survival or a fetch land to give you the opportunity to grab the wurm.
Bit mana intensive though to cast him for not much reason.

Apparently I can't actually OPEN those accordion folders I created, because clicking them just hyperlinks to the users in question. Dammit.
Here's the gist of it, abbreviated (sorry):
RazortoothMtg: I felt I had a few options, but I needed to be able to use that combo even when holding up 0 mana. That leaves me 2 options: a free spell like Snapback or Pyrokinesis, or Simian Spirit Guide+Pyroblast. The former seemed better, and I got to kill a Kaalia deck with Snapback so I like it, hehe.
TheRedGoat: Sorry for how curt this is about to sound; I lost probably 700 words in those damnable spoiler boxes above :/ In short:
Words of War is inefficient and requires extra setup alas. I find Leyline of Anticipation to be subpar in this case, and slots are tight. Breath of Fury goes infinite with a draw outlet as long as I have any one undefended opponent, but I cut it anyway because it's too easy to disrupt. My deck is fast enough now (average T4 win) that Mystic Retrieval is too much mana. Hostility works for a couple combos in place of Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, but it's a very bad substitute because it won't save you from decking yourself if the effect in question draws more than 1 card. Also, you can't use Hostility as recursion to re-draw your GY. I would honestly try to get Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre if you want to cut a few $$s, but you do need an "Eldrazi shuffle" for the deck to function right. Purphoros, God of the Forge is virtually never a creature (barely have enough devotion in the deck to turn him on) so I'm not running Curiosity. I did add Mind Over Matter for the Niv-Mizzet combo tho. And when you do make that more casual Locust God deck, feel free to link me! :)
Again, sorry for the curtness. If you want more detail feel free to ask for clarification.
