Love this build. Do you have access to, or considered, Hatred ? Great card for taking out a player. I run a Volrath the Fallen Voltron build, and a source of evasion that I really like is Dauthi Embrace .

Reference your questions on the Advertise Your Deck page:

  1. The screen doesn't seem too hard on the eyes, but I do have a bit of trouble reading the white letters at times in the middle, with the white Atraxa art. If the letters were yellow, perhaps they'd be a bit easier to follow in spots?

  2. I like Champion of Lambholt . It can shut down aggressive opponents pretty quickly, if that's an issue you face in your meta.

  3. I'm a fan of the Weatherlight saga in general, and Volrath the Fallen is one of my favorite cards, so I'm super excited about Volrath, the Shapestealer . I'd say give him a go, just to see how it works out, but that's mainly because I'm just a fanboy.

Hope these help out some.

This is the commander I am most excited about. I like that you are leaning into the idea of everyone discarding, I was kinda thinking the same thing. If i have to be card dead, so does everyone else.

Creeping Dread - I like the idea of everyone having to discard, the damage is just a bonus.

Volrath the Fallen - 3 might be tough to play, but its a good way to madness out a creature.

Greel, Mind Raker - could be 0 if you are just looking to madness out a couple cards, or could make 1 opponent discard entire hand.

I am also feeling like this deck will need more mana rocks. especially if you are cycling thought your cards quickly. I was loving the new Arcane Signet coming out in the next set.

Good luck with this build. :)

Volrath the Fallen do some voodoo by nonchalantly giving him fear or shadow and paying 2 to discard a Draco . Or have Chainer fun in the deck.

Volrath the Fallen going into another deck. My work here is done.

Glad the suggestions have been helpful!

Wow, thank you both SakuraStorm and bushido_man96 for so many terrific suggestions. I'll have to post an update soon with all the card changes. I think I know what a want to come out; I'm hoping with all these great additions, the deck still feels 'Eldrazi'. I'm sure it will.

There's so many great ideas there, especially for the card draw. I agree about Underworld Connections its gotta go. I also found some of the 'small fry' Eldrazi not doing much, so they've been cut. Volrath the Fallen should be in the 99... I totally forgot about him!!

Thank you so much!

I second the use of Ghoulcaller Gisa to create more tokens. Sac one Eldrazi, and she makes a bundle of tokens.

A ramp spell you might consider trying is Bubbling Muck . It has a better ceiling than Dark Ritual does. Another option that fits with sacrificing creatures is Culling the Weak . Not as strong as the Muck, but still an option.

I know I've mentioned this before, but I think you should add Volrath the Fallen to the 99. You can discard SEVERAL Eldrazi to his ability, making him really HUGE, swinging in for nasty amounts of damage. He does what you want; pitch Eldrazi, and attack with big creatures. And remember, he stepped out, he did not step down! :D

Love the deck, and I love mono black. I think Whisper, Blood Liturgist is an especially strong card. +1.

A fun Commander to give a whirl would be Volrath the Fallen , and play reanimator. Discarding the Eldrazi to his ability to smack someone for lethal commander damage out of nowhere is truly enjoyable. I play a build like this (minus Eldrazi), and really love it.
