Vile Redeemer Discussion

I like the idea.

There is an interesting option for this list- Dictate of Kruphix / Faerie Vandal . Howling mine decks were a thing with a similar 'disrupt while you kill them' engine a long while ago.

Mizzium Meddler is an interesting sideboard tech if boggles style enchantments or hammer gets popular. Shambleshark is cute but rarely effective. Vile Redeemer is an interesting answer to wipes.

Good luck with the brew.

Vile Redeemer is great if you're willing to add more lands that make .

Need more variety in your free sacrifice generation. Don't worry, I'm here to make tons of terrible and unnecessary recommendations! I'm just going to throw them down in a list instead of coming up with a little blurb for why each one is good (you're smart enough to not need that).

Smothering Abomination , From Beyond , Awakening Zone , Revel in Riches , Pawn of Ulamog , Catacomb Sifter , Emrakul's Evangel , Rapacious One , Spawning Bed , Spawnsire of Ulamog , Vile Redeemer , Brass's Bounty , Contract Killing , Curse of Opulence , Gild , Gleaming Barrier ... cont'd.

Cards like Blisterpod and Eldrazi Skyspawner provide Eldrazi Scions for mana. Try Vile Redeemer too if your deck can afford some creatures dying. Endless One would be a good choice for when you have a lot of mana on your hands.

Maybe try some green eldrazi cards like World Breaker and Vile Redeemer . Also try Kozilek's Pathfinder for easy attacking.

Lose Blighted Cataract Evolving Wilds Skyline Cascade. Add Cloudpost and Glimmerpost. Consider adding Simic Growth Chamber to bounce Glimmerpost


Dump Spell Shrivel and Hedron Archive. They distract from what the deck wants to do. Replace Call the Scions with Awakening Zone and From Beyond to give you constant, passive token generation. Beastmaster Ascension to give all those tokens some teeth! Fecundity turns each sacrificed token into a draw. Growth Spasm will let you fetch lands and give you more tokens. I see a theme....

Eldrazi Utility Creatures

Keep Blisterpod and Tide Drifter. Dump the other drones. Add the hyper-efficient Nest Invader. Add Blight Herder, Ulamog's Despoiler, and Void Attendant. Consider Vile Redeemer depending on the boardwipe prevalence in your meta game.

Eldrazi Heavies

An army of tokens makes Hand of Emrakul a no-brainer. Definitely have two of Bane of Bala Ged in the main board.

Most of the recommendations are under $1.00 with 95% being less than $.50. That being said, all token decks need to run Cryptolith Rite. Tapping tokens for a mana of any color speeds the deck into overdrive!

Magic & dogfighting share a common principle: When heading to the merge, speed is life.

To start off, Eye of Ugin is banned in Modern. A good tribal land is Cavern of Souls if you don't care about the price.

  1. Blisterpod along with Vile Redeemer isn't the best form of ramp. I would recommend Arbor Elf along with Utopia Sprawl. With them both on the battlefield, you can get up to 4 mana from them both by turn 2.

  2. Either that or make your deck a tron deck. This means you add a 4-of of Urza's Mine, Urza's Tower and Urza's Power Plant. This allows you get your Eldrazi out faster.

  3. The amount of large Eldrazi you have is unnecessary. Realistically you need to take out most of them. Eldrazi are strong even as a 4/5 or a 5/5, no need for 10/10 stats. I recommend Thought-Knot Seer, Reality Smasher and Matter Reshaper.

I hope you have fun playing your deck.
