Ur-Golem's Eye Discussion
2 weeks ago
Super cool your meta has allowed you to run Parhelion as your commander. Definitely a challenge as it is an expensive cast (8cmc) in white. A few more ramp suggestions maybe to go in place of some vehicles:
Sword of the Animist really nifty equipment that searched for lands on the attack.
One of my favorite newish ramp cards is Settle the Wreckage . The cool thing with this is it can be flexed as an actual boardwipe if needed. Otherwise make some tokens and ramp yourself after you attack.
I’m more of a basic land guy myself, but I would say to think about this: there’s a new card from M20 called Brought Back and it would work pretty well if you had some cheap fetchlands in the deck like Terramorphic Expanse —crack 2 on the same turn then cast Brought Back and you’re technically ramping in white! It’s rather contextual but Brought Back can be flexed as recursion for some creatures/artifacts/enchantments if needed instead.
And lastly, if interested, there are these:
Good luck! And awesome deck, hopefully some of those suggestions help! +1

Not sure if you have budget restrictions but I’d recommend Treasure Nabber , Goblin Engineer , Ur-Golem's Eye , Sisay's Ring , maybe Arcbound Crusher for something janky that will get big and you can toss with Bosh. I know the name of the game is jank, but... Mycosynth Lattice would be awesome in this deck—if everything becomes an artifact you can then copy all activated abilities! Wanderer's Twig for another ramp option. Junk Diver and Myr Retriever for some recursion.
That Jester's Cap with your commander is spicy! I like that a lot.

If you need help with knowing how much/what ramp to use, you might want to check out https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/brewer-s-minute-ramp-math
I am not an expert in mono, but for you I recommend adding:
Myriad Landscape can go in almost any edh deck
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is solid in any one- or two-colour deck
Lake of the Dead has a downside, but you won't care when you're using it (trust me)
Petrified Field to protect valuable lands.
I'm not sure how I feel about Temple of the False God , but it is an EDH classic.
Other mono ramp
I ended up finding so many mono ramp cards I thought I might as well make a more full list.
Solemn Simulacrum is a good catch-all
Nirkana Revenant is good in the right deck
Bog Witch is kind of weird, but has fringe uses
I haven't thought hard, but you might be able to do some flicker shenanigans with Priest of Gix
Worst case, an edh deck can always load up on rocks. These are some of the best ones for mono black
Sol Ring every edh deck should include this
Pillar of Origins for tribal decks
In most games, these do the same thing: Commander's Sphere , Cryptolith Fragment Flip, Cultivator's Caravan , Darksteel Ingot , Hierophant's Chalice , Honor-Worn Shaku , Mana Prism , Manalith , Orazca Relic , Phyrexian Totem , Powerstone Shard , Pristine Talisman , Seer's Lantern , Serum Powder , Skull of Ramos , Sol Grail , Spectral Searchlight , Vessel of Endless Rest , Victory Chimes , and Chromatic Lantern
Thought Vessel if you fill your hand
Chrome Mox is usually worth the card disadvantage
Mox Amber if you usually have your commander/a legendary thing out
Mox Diamond if lands in your graveyard is a good thing
Mox Opal if you have 2+ extra artifacts
Black Market is good if you tend to sacrifice/kill a lot of creatures
Liliana of the Dark Realms is nice with proliferate, and makes sure you don't miss land drops in the mid/late-game
Sword of the Animist is best with one-mana creatures, and if you attack often, but might be justified even if not
Carnival of Souls is fun with some creature-based combos
Crypt of Agadeem works, but only if you consistently have 4+ creatures in the graveyard
Phyrexian Tower eats your creatures
Cabal Coffers is a staple
Cabal Stronghold is great if you can't afford many nonbasics, and might be good enough besides.

Try Fellwar Stone , Commander's Sphere , Darksteel Ingot , Hedron Archive and Boros Locket instead of Manalith , Sisay's Ring , Ur-Golem's Eye and Astral Cornucopia . // Sunforger is an all-star in Boros, being an amazing toolbox (if you put some 4- CMC instants). // Vivid Crag and Warped Landscape can become Battlefield Forge and Myriad Landscape .

I would highly recommend a bit more card-draw and a few untappers. Krenko does amazing with a few untappers.
Magewright's Stone is good. Thousand-Year Elixir is great too. Umbral Mantle is decent. Puppet Strings is good on a budget. Illusionist's Bracers are a good choice too. You don't need to go nuts but having three or so untappers in the 99 will serve you well. If you can tutor up Skirk Prospector, Krenko can go infinite with Thornbite Staff, though it just recently spiked in price.
Good red card draw is rare but every EDH deck needs a little. Reforge the Soul, Faithless Looting, Cathartic Reunion, Outpost Siege, Mind's Eye, Skullclamp, and Wild Guess are good. Staff of Nin is good on a budget too.
You have almost no ramp at all. Goblins are pretty low to the ground but every deck needs a little ramp. Krenko usually has a bulls-eye on his back so you'll want to be able to recast him. Sol Ring, Worn Powerstone, Fire Diamond, Mind Stone, Darksteel Ingot, Coldsteel Heart, Hedron Archive, Ur-Golem's Eye, and Gilded Lotus might be good places to start.
I would highly recommend dropping all the combat tricks. In a multiplayer setting with increased life totals they just don't have the "oomf" that they do in regular 60-card formats.
I would also drop Hedron Blade, Stormrider Rig, Claws of Valakut, Goblin War Paint, and Messenger's Speed. No good in EDH. War Horn is decent for Krenko but there are better cards out there so if things get tight you can drop it easily enough.

having a higher curve is fine but you might want to look into more ramp like signets and Thran Dynamo or Ur-Golem's Eye or Hedron Archive. Consider dropping Pilgrim's Eye, Eldrazi Displacer, or Oath of Gideon for em?
I've looked at Synthetic Destiny for my own deck, i think its definitly interesting, and with your amount of boardwipes maybe its worth running, just to protect your own board?
also i have no idea what its called and i'm too lazy to look it up but that black spell with miracle to rez x creatures is really strong, and i think its worth including.

Oops, I have Worn Powerstone, I meant Basalt Monolith. I am tired, lol. Sisay's Ring or Ur-Golem's Eye could work also. I wish there was a way to edit comments, or there is, and I haven't figured it out yet, I'm new to the site.

I have a friend who has a deck like this, except with Kozilek, the Great Distortion. His trick is to run a shit ton of mana rocks. Even crappy, questionably-playable rocks like Ur-Golem's Eye fit right into it. He consistently casts Kozilek by turn 5 or 6, and sometimes even earlier. Considering that Ulamog is already a 10/10 indestructible, I would take out some of your Darksteel Plate and Blackblade Reforged-like effects and replace them with some of this scary fast ramp.
