Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre Discussion
1 day ago
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.

Sweet changes that already won me a 3-player game!
More discard (anti-control) with Oppression, which works so well in this deck because you're spells have powerful effects, so the cost of discarding a card is payable (relative to the effect). For example, under Oppression, you can cast an Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre and discard a card, but a green player just can't ramp through it. Who's going to play Rampant Growth to fetch a basic land and discard a card? So this card doesn't hurt you much but destroys other decks. Some decks, such as graveyard decks, can actually benefit from it, so obviously you should decide if it's a good idea to cast it.
On another note, this deck needs to play a fast game and finish players off, and Maga, Traitor to Mortals is a fantastic finisher. I just cast a Maga for 11 life loss last night to win a game. Sower of Discord has a higher ceiling, of course, but takes more turns, and turns isn't something you want to give up in this deck.
One more thought about Sower of Discord... note that it mirrors damage done to player A as life loss to player B. So one situation that would be sweet to set up just isn't possible with Sower: mirror your own life loss from draw spells and other downward spiral effects to another player. Bummer. But should they make that card in the future, it would be ridiculous in this deck. And if they already made that card, please let me know!

Dear eatmygender, I've done my best to take your sage suggestions, however, did run into a few issues. You have to understand, my meager intellect needs very specific instructions and I cannot perform any thinking on my own. As TappedOut could not recognize Squee, I used Squee, Goblin Nabob. TappedOut also didn't recognize "Ulamog," "Emrakul," "Kozilek," or "Zodiac Chicken." In their places, I used Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, Kozilek the Butcher, and Zodiac Rooster. Finally, it appears TappedOut does not see the inherent wisdom of running 789 Kozilek. The most I could get TappedOut to accept was 489 copies (I assumed numbers ending in 89 had an advantage). While I now question TappedOut's wisdom in their limitations and recognize the deck will surely suffer being 300 Kozileks short, 489/789 must be better than none at all. My sincerest gratitude for your suggestions and your understanding my limitations.

Zedruu was my first deck, and aside from some differences in budget, I wanted to ask about a few of your specific choices.
The following cards I'm not sure why they were included in your list. Could you sell me on them? Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre Am I missing a way to cheat his cost? Scroll Rack and Search for azcanta - Do you need more draw/advantage? Rule of Law -Aren't you the low curve+draw who would want to play multiple cards morseso than most? Temple Bell - Is it a combo I'm missing?
Others I'm already tempted by but haven't been able to test yet Humility - Absent of tokens and using a commander which gives card advantage, do you break parity? Dack Fayden I recently added Treasure Nabber, on top of running Embargo and Stony Silence- Do you think Dack performs well enough to still be included? Stranglehold is so powerful. I currently run Aven Mindcensor and love the effect. Why did you choose Strangle over Aven? Would it be worth running both? Helm of Obedience I'm just not familiar with. How much do you normally put into X? If X = 3 and it is 4 to cast, 7 cmc for a random creature... It could be great but I assume you'd hit a lot of 2-3 cmc creatures no? Copy Enchantment I recently added Copy Artifact reasoning that it could function as a rock as a minimum each game and has a high ceiling- but I'm not sure about copying enchantments since so many are static effects that are redundant to have multiple. Am I misperceiving it?
Finally, I was curious about your Solemnity. I run it as well and at the time it was great. Stopping +1/+1 counters, experience counters... But now I never see those. I love that it can combo well with Delaying Shield (in my case) and Phyrexian Unlife (in your case) but I don't know if that warrants keeping it.

Ok, so I have a few goodies that would be nice and free w/ your generals ability. Most of them can be very powerful but I will leave it to you to decide if any are good enough to make the cut.

You have the RiP/helm combo in deck, that could be another wincon. Also following the line of insanity, either of the legal og eldrazi Titans (Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre) fit thematically, and also serve as a reset.
Also, just an FYI mother of goons isn't legal, unless you clarify uncards with your playgroup.

If you're looking for noncombat wincons, you can try Borborygmos Enraged, especially with Creeping Renaissance to return lands for more discard. Borborygmos can do infinite damage by discarding Dakmor Salvage with Gitrog in play, as long as you have Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre to shuffle your graveyard back into your library.
Other noncombat wincons you can try are Retreat to Hagra if you have enough landfall, or animating lands with Living Plane or Nature's Revolt then killing them with Massacre Wurm. Those land animation enchantments should also give infinite mana and combats with Aggravated Assault.
For other ways to achieve infinite landfall, you can check out the writeup of my Windgrace deck.

If you like Bolts, why not Borborygmos Enraged? This also goes infinite by discarding and dredging Dakmor Salvage with Gitrog in play and Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre in your library.
