Description

This a newly revised version of my old U/R Eldrazi Midrange, it's now geared to a more aggressive approach but most of the old deck synergies are still present.

The obvious focus of the deck, all are colorless eldrazi and play off eachother.

Elder Deep-Fiend: Board-changing creature to flash in on endsteps or prior to combat.

Herald of Kozilek: The catalyst of the deck, reduces all of the creature costs to allow for swift board presence.

Vile Aggregate: Main aggro charactor, can become huge very quickly.

Ruination Guide : Pumps up everyone and can drastically change combat.

Eldrazi Skyspawner : 2-for-one, gives me a flier and a token cannon fodder.

Dimensional Infiltrator : 2-drop flier, can flash in to change combat scenarios.

The main function of the spells are to protect the eldrazi swarm and then unleash them.

Negate: Strong and cheap counter-magic, helpful agaisnt board wipes.

Dispel: Cheap, but slightly specific, counter-magic.

Brutal Expulsion : Can timewalk a big threat such as a planeswalker and do some slight creature burn.

Magmatic Chasm : The hidden gem, for 2 it allows all of my creatures get past a built-up ground-blocking wall of tokens or whatever, most likely for the kill or close too it.

The sideboard gives you options to be more flexible.

Thought-Knot Seer: A solid 4/4 with hand disruption.

Ceremonious Rejection: Powerful counter-magic for today's standard field.

Kozilek's Return: The option for taking on token decks, only re-triggered by Elder Deep-Fiend.

Void Shatter: Counter-magic agaisnt anything.

Summary Dismissal: Big card for taking on the new Emrakul, the Promised End decks or agaisnt planeswalker ults.

Galvanic Bombardment : Cheap creature burn that can get up to a 5 damage, 1-drop instant.

Tide Drifter : Helps pump my 1 toughness fliers to stay out of range of Take Down and 1-damage pingers.

Maybe-board cards are suggestions that I truely think would be better alternatives to the list I currently have, all under serious consideration.

Slip Through Space : Makes a solo creature unblockable and gets me another card.

Renegade Tactics: Can make a big butt or deathtouch creature on the opposing side useless for combat for a turn and gets me a card.

Turn Aside: Great agaisnt spot removal.

The game plan is to flood the board, protecting the army, pinging in with fliers or trample and then play Magmatic Chasm for the kill.

Number 27 on the list as of 12/5/16, thanks people!

I'm always open to suggestions so please comment below, and if you want to try this out (It is only like $75) at your local LGS, I wish you the best of luck!

I really like this take on Eldrazi, +1 from me. One card I'm surprised you're not using, is Corrupted Crossroads. Any reason as to why not?

Also I'm very tempted to build the deck, as I have a majority of the cards. :)

I did have Corrupted Crossroads before, but in my testing, Evolving Wilds has been slightly better because it gets me a basic I can use for my non-devoid stuff, which was my main problem (IE, correct mana for Negate), and it helps thin down the deck as well but Crossroads is still a clutch land for this deck. I just personally believe it runs slightly better with Wilds but use whatever you'd prefer.

Your fliers are really weak to Take Down

Cards that give your creatures a boost in toughness would also be good in addition to the additional power

Yes Take Down is a good option agaisnt my flying stuff but not many people run it and I do have Negate but I am considering Tide Drifter to take up a slot in my sideboard, probably x2.

Fair enough, but what if someone negates your negate? Because that can happen, or dispel the negate, unsubstantiate. Heck even Geistblast will make your negate useless unless you have enough mana to 1. bounce or counter the first Take Down and 2. bounce or counter the copy if made.

All I'm trying to say is have a backup strategy in the case that you don't have the answer for.

Yeah a counter-magic war can and has happened before (although it is fun, lol) so i'll definetly consider Tide Drifter for the sideboard. My only qualm on that is that he doesn't really do much once he's on the field but it is a huge butt early so now I just gotta figure out what to take out.

Have you found that Magmatic Chasm is better than slip through space? Slip through space also lets a grounded body through, but also cost less and replaces itself. Your deck doesn't have any card draw, so I think that the cantrip is a huge upgrade.

I have used Slip Through Space before for those exact reasons but I have found using Magmatic Chasm helps open up attacks for Herald of Kozilek, Ruination Guide, scions and obviously Vile Aggregate to all get by opposing tokens/blockers on the ground.

So instead of making a solo creature totally unblockable, I make all of my creatures mostly unblockable because I don't really see fliers kept back for defense.

The card draw is nice but it's the sacrifice to just hopefully close out a game quicker overall by attacking with everything.

lol ive never thought of this deck, +1 from me. I built a Blue-Black Eldrazi Control deck which was my 2nd ever Standard deck, so im used to Eldrazis

You may have thought that AER didn't bring you any new toys, however you may have missed Metallic Mimic. Giving +1/1 to all of your fliers is going to be huge. I would remove some spells to accommodate it, as this is an aggro deck. Also, Spirebluff Canal is great if you can afford it.

Thats a good point. I just haven't updated this deck because i've been busy with my new standard: Rakdos Smashin'.

Mimic would be huge for sure, colorless so it's cheaper with Herald of Kozilek and still counts towards Vile Aggregate and gets the buff from Ruination Guide. Thanks for the insight.
