Description

Because she likes it big.

*I'm thinking of adding some cards from the maybeboard. What do you think?*

6-12-2011: Deck created. I really didn't expect to get the amount of feedback for a colorless deck.

6-22-2011: 1000 views. Thanks everyone for the comments and the +1s. I appreciate it. Keep 'em coming.

6-24-2011: 1500 views!

6-25-2011: 2000 views!!

6-29-2011: 2500 views!!!

Yay for colorless!!!!

Ornithopter is for early game chump blockers.

Expedition Map and Walking Atlas are for getting my lands out faster.

Palladium Myr is pretty self-explanatory but I can also search for them as needed with Eye of Ugin . I know it's a bit much to pay 7 to search for a cmc 3 creature card but if that's all that stand in the way of cast Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , then I will do it every time. Also, he is perfect with Myr Superion .

Prototype Portal -- I produce so much mana on average that I figure I could use the Prototype Portal -Mindslaver combo every turn until I get what I need. Also, I could use Prototype Portal with Expedition Map to search for a land card every turn for 3.

Skittering Invasion , Ornithopter , Walking Atlas and Palladium Myr can all serve as chump blockers.

I will need some help with a good sideboard to deal with graveyard hate and cards such as Sadistic Sacrament and Jester's Cap .

Edit 6-18-11: I added 3 Myr Superion s because I had them (although I had forgotten that I had them when I put the deck together). I figure I could use the Palladium Myr to cast it. I also think I could use Karn, Silver Golem 's ability to turn Ashnod's Altar into a creature and then sacrifice it to itself to produce the necessary 2 colorless to cast him.

Random thought: I just realized that Myr Superion on Prototype Portal is another awesome way to circumvent Myr Superion 's casting cost. I love it!!

Edit 6-24-2011 After talking with a friend, I decided to add Dreamstone Hedron . 6 mana is not a problem and I have the possibility of drawing three cards. Another option is Mind Stone .

Edit 6-25-2011 I added Living Wall to the sideboard. I like the ability to regenerate. I'm going to do some playtests involving Doubling Cube .

Edit 6-28-2011 I added Painter's Servant to the sideboard. It's my dream in life to use All Is Dust with Painter's Servant in the battlefield. By the way, I wouldn't use it unless I had Urzatron or a few Cloudpost s in my hand.

EDIT 8-4-2011 I removed Karn Liberated from the deck because I needed him elswhere. At the suggestion of icekilleaxx, I decided to give Jester's Scepter a try seeing as I don't have any way to counter anything.

EDIT 8-16-2011 Due to overwhelming support, Karn Liberated as made it back in the deck.

EDIT 1-23-2012 So, I decided to finally update this deck after a few months and officially remove Cloudpost from the deck. While it is a little slower than before the banning of Cloudpost , Urzatron still is an effective use of Vesuva . I also decided to add 4x Eldrazi Temple to the mix since the main thing with the deck is getting the Eldrazi legends into play.

EDIT 1-31-2012 Mind Stone is actually Dreamstone Hedron until tappedout.net changes the set that Dreamstone Hedron is in. Right now, they have it in mtg:commander instead of Rise of the Eldrazi. Also, the second Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre because he is in the database as "From the vault: legends."

Suggestions

Updates

— May 10, 2013

I updated the deck. I'm looking to make it faster in the early game. I really want the base to stay the same. What can I do to make it faster?

DigiFruitDrew says...

#1

May I suggest replacing Eldrazi Temple and Tectonic Edge with Cloudpost and Glimmerpost , as that could help ramp into a faster Eldrazi.

May 15, 2013 5:29 a.m.

Cloudpost is banned in Modern...

I would cut Myr Superion for Wurmcoil Engine .

Is there a better card draw option other than Dreamstone Hedron ? Tezzeret's Gambit comes to mind, but it's not entirely colorless...

May 15, 2013 5:36 a.m.

Arnonator says...

#3

Why no Caged Sun ?

You can cut the Dreamstone Hedron

May 20, 2013 6:16 a.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#4

Caged Sun only works for colored mana. Colorless can't be chosen as a color.

May 20, 2013 2:28 p.m.

Arnonator says...

#5

My bad, sorry.

Thought colourless was also a colour.

May 21, 2013 10:36 a.m.

Dreno33 says...

#6

have you considered Thespian's Stage over Vesuva ? you can have it become Eldrazi Temple for the time being but if you get the complete set out of the urza's, you can then change it to Urza's Tower to make it produce one extra mana, and be able to cast anything not just eldrazis. just a thought in looking back at this deck.

May 21, 2013 10:44 a.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#7

@Dreno33: I'll have to give a try.

May 21, 2013 10:55 a.m.

vishnarg says...

#8

I run Tron, and thespians stage is far more useful than Vesuva.

May 21, 2013 2:21 p.m.

KaraZorEl says...

#9

Prototype Portal just asking for Sundering Titan to be imprinted.

May 23, 2013 10:46 p.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#10

I didn't even think of the titan.

May 23, 2013 10:53 p.m.

I really like this deck and Im looking into building one similar to it but a little bit cheaper. What are some good cards for this deck that are like under 15?

May 28, 2013 11:19 a.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#12

@CenturionRower: Use either Blightsteel Colossus or Darksteel Colossus as your fatties, Thespian's Stage instead of Vesuva , and just drop Karn Liberated .

May 28, 2013 10:26 p.m.

Digby92 says...

#13

Really cool deck, idea and name +1

June 4, 2013 3:55 a.m.

baron_lazari says...

#14

have you considered running Lightning Greaves as they can come out on turn two and can basically just mean you get hasty eldrazi so they start annihilating immediately, also works on Palladium Myr for that turn 3 Myr Superion .

June 27, 2013 11:14 a.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#15

@baron_lazari: I like that idea a lot. What do you recommend removing to make room for them?

June 29, 2013 11:51 a.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#16

I think -1 Walking Atlas and -2 Mindslaver for +3 Lightning Greaves .

June 29, 2013 11:53 a.m.

Morokai says...

#17

you could potentially make use of a Mimic Vat if you find things are dying often. you could even exile Kozilek if someone managed to kill him, resulting in a hasty kozilek every turn for 3 mana, or draw 3 cards with 6 from the hedron as well as giving you a way to steal opponent's creatures. Also, have you considered It That Betrays ?

July 1, 2013 4:35 p.m.

Chaoz0646 says...

#18

I wanted to make a version of the deck thats 100 dollars cheaper. Any suggestions?

July 4, 2013 10:46 a.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#19

@Chaoz0646: Use either Blightsteel Colossus or Darksteel Colossus as your fatties, Thespian's Stage instead of Vesuva , and just drop Karn Liberated .

July 4, 2013 11:04 a.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#20

If you do that, you'll cut almost $200. If you want to keep the eldrazi, then just cut karn and vesuva.

July 4, 2013 11:09 a.m.

<3 +1 for colorless

ZarBluestar says...

#24

I like this deck, +1. Since you are clearly good at making decks, could you evaluate my Elf Semi-Populate. It's the first deck I've made and I wasn as much advice as I can get.

*also note that I playtested this against my elves twice. it lost one then won one, so I guess that means they're about even.

July 10, 2013 1:16 p.m.

Demarge says...

#25

There is a reason tron runs light splashes into colors, going all in on the land urza land ramp opens you up to lose by your own deck's variance, out of 15 games of playtesting there wasn't a single hand I actually liked as it completely relies on getting the urza lands out before turn 4 and to hope you can ride the Karn to victory. Unless it's for casual games you probably shouldn't exchange resiliency and consistency for a gimmick (though I will admit doing so does work as a nice strategy to farm upvotes from people here on Tappedout).

July 10, 2013 7:01 p.m.

xzzane says...

#26

Awesome deck. care to test it out against my deck Swarm and Conquer V 2.0? Also, I do agree with Demarge slightly. He comes off as being an asshole to be quite frank, but he does have a good point about the color thing. Pyroclasm is a must to help stop aggro decks from overrunning you.

Not modern legal

September 16, 2013 1:52 a.m.

Thirteen says...

#29

I'd like to suggest Quicksilver Amulet if you wanted to get your creatures out extremely quickly and without waiting for the mana to ramp up --- with afew of those (I'd say maybe 3 or 4), you could get big guys like Blightsteel Colossus or your Eldrazi creatures out on turn 5 (or less if you can throw down those Palladium Myr s quickly).

If you wanted to pull out some of your Mainboard in trade for some heavy-hitting artifacts like Blightsteel Colossus or Darksteel Colossus (ect), Mycosynth Golem would be great for making your mana work a little harder for you, and has the possibility to lower the costs of all your artifacts (creatures or otherwise) to 0.

If you wanted to go with the Amulet --- I'd suggest adding in more Eldrazi creatures and other high-cost heavy hitting creatures and also: -1 Eldrazi Temple and -1 Tectonic Edge (or -2 Tectonic Edge ) for +2 Doubling Cube .

If you wanted to go with the Affinity for Artifacts --- I'd suggest slightly different land changes: -1 Eldrazi Temple and -1 Tectonic Edge (or -2 Tectonic Edge ) for +2 Eye of Ugin , and seeing if maybe you could squeeze in a few Thopter Assembly s to boost your number of Artifacts on the field.

November 14, 2013 6:27 p.m.

Rugbyfh10 says...

#30

I would run 4x Sol Ring . I would take out the Lightning Greaves and maybe one of the Expedition Map s. You have 26 land so hitting your land should not be an issue.

November 26, 2013 11:05 p.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#31

It's a modern deck so Sol Ring is a no-go. Thank you for the suggestion, though.

November 26, 2013 11:37 p.m.

Rugbyfh10 says...

#32

Oh yeah that's my bad. I read that but it didn't register. I figured it couldn't be that simple. +1 either way

November 27, 2013 12:02 a.m.

MagnorCriol says...

#33

Expedition Map still has good value because with the Urzatron lands in here, it's often just as important which land you have as how many. The Map is less about mana smoothing and more about tutoring a specific piece.

November 27, 2013 2:07 a.m.

#34

How 'bout another Emrakul for infinite turns?

December 1, 2013 7:35 p.m.

miloguy says...

#35

I don't know how I feel about Myr Superion , having a hand full of them is unpleasant when the only card you can use to cast it is Palladium Myr

December 4, 2013 12:46 a.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#36

I actually use Prototype Portal most to bring out Myr Superion .

December 4, 2013 1:49 a.m.

oreo1123 says...

#37

Quicksilver Amulet is definitely an excellent way to get your fatties down fast.

Just wanted to say I absolutely love this deck, it's amazing!

February 5, 2014 10:13 p.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#40

@Tenebrex: Thanks man. I really enjoy playing it. It may not be the strongest deck but it is definitely a fun deck to run.

February 5, 2014 10:56 p.m.

I say add 4 Darksteel Citadel because:

1.They are indestructible.

2.Imprint it on Prototype Portal so you can always have a land a turn.

3.They help with affinity for artifacts.

February 6, 2014 3:12 p.m.

JakeHarlow says...

#42

+1, great deck! I love that it uses absolutely zero color.

February 25, 2014 11:39 a.m.

YAY MONO-BROWN!!

February 28, 2014 11:35 p.m.

Jagishamesh says...

#44

Why not 4 Emrakul? Also your deck needs a way to deal with aggro, particularly infect.

March 3, 2014 1:49 a.m.

Dorotheus says...

And suddenly Stony Silence , gg.

March 5, 2014 2:44 a.m.

Is this the most upvoted deck on tappedout?

March 17, 2014 10:11 p.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#47

@SpaderAce: No, there are 3 other decks in front of it. Swamps, Best.Deck.Ever. and Grand Illusion are all in front of it. (Not that I'm counting.)

March 17, 2014 10:15 p.m.

SpaderAce says...

#48

ALMOST THERE! Lol, this deck looks pretty cool, almost wish I played modern :P

March 17, 2014 10:16 p.m.

Colgate says...

#49

How 'bout Trinisphere , Lodestone Golem and Thorn of Amethyst ? They win storm decks instannly and are always greater pain to your opponent than for you due to your bigger mana production., except when opponent plays tron too. Sundering Titan is also nice addition to denial.

March 18, 2014 3:16 a.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#50

@Colgate: Holy crap. Those are great suggestions. I'll figure out how to get them in. Any suggestions. I know that I'll be replacing Myr Superion , Prototype Portal and Dreamstone Hedron . I want to add Etched Champion for chump blocking and I need to add something for card draw. I thought Runed Servitor or Solemn Simulacrum . What do you think?

March 18, 2014 1:28 p.m.

DrLakis says...

#51

I don't understand the point in adding Solemn Simulacrum since you have to search your library for a 'basic land card' and this deck doesn't have basic lands. The other changes, I think they are good suggestions.

March 30, 2014 1:05 p.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#52

@DrLakis: I added it because it allows me to draw a card when he dies when I chump block. Can you suggest another creature that would allow me to draw? I tend to run out of cards to use because of the high casting cost associated with this type of build.

March 30, 2014 1:34 p.m.

demongod says...

#53

why don't you just have like 5 forests, add Ancient Stirrings , and then Solemn Simulacrum will actually let you search for a land? tron decks shouldn't be all colorless, it's not beneficial at all other than being able to say "it's colorless"

March 30, 2014 2:19 p.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#54

If I add the Forest s and other colored cards, then the deck just becomes another Green Tron deck. I think the appeal to the deck is that it's colorless. It's what draws people it.

Is it fun to play? Absolutely. Will it when major tournament? You should bet against it but that doesn't matter. I have fun playing and building it.

March 30, 2014 8:05 p.m.

Xyresic says...

#55

If you're going hell-bent mono-"brown", the Sundering Titan + Prototype Portal combo is hilarious. Of course, that kinda requires both cards.

If you're looking for chumpers... Wurmcoil Engine is literally the best chumper for this, at least in my opinion. Huge-ass body T3, if it dies it kills whatever killed it, gets you 6 life, then leaves 2 more chumpers on the field.

Not sure how useful Eldrazi Temple are, if you're going to be heading the direction of Etched Champion , Darksteel Citadel might be something to think about.

If you're going to be bringing this to something very competitive, you're going to need to watch out for Sowing Salt

March 30, 2014 8:11 p.m.

DrLakis says...

#56

You're right, for a creature + draw, that's probably the only option. To draw you could use Jayemdae Tome but you lose the blocker and its also more mana!

March 31, 2014 3:47 p.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#57

What about Ensnaring Bridge ? It would help to control what could attack. I wouldn't get card draw but it would quell one of my biggest worries with this deck.

March 31, 2014 10:17 p.m.

Devilsmage says...

#58

Ensnaring Bridge would lock down most of your win conditions(super fat eldrazi's). With a standard max hand size of 7 and no way to take your own artifact off the board, your big Eldrazi's will never be able to attack if that is out.

March 31, 2014 11:56 p.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#59

I think I'll read the card better next time. Thanks for enlightening me.

April 1, 2014 12:18 a.m.

Devilsmage says...

#60

Oh no problem! Think you have a bit to check my brew out?

Butthurt by Tokens (3x FNM Winner)

I just made a change in that deck and I am still not sure about it.

April 1, 2014 12:23 a.m.

Devilsmage says...

#61

Also, since you have no instants on your main board or sideboard, you should try to see if Bottled Cloister will give you the card advantage you want.

It would be way better than your Solemn Simulacrum for draw...but you lose the chump blocker (which I dont think you need anymore of).

It would also stop decks that discard key cards from your hand in their tracks...which is VERY common in modern right now. Thoughtseize and similar. Even though sieze is only B, it will stop from them doing it late game and give you a card extra each turn...since you dont need your hand during the opponents turn, I dont see any reason to not run this card.

April 1, 2014 12:44 a.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#62

@Devilsmage: I think Bottled Cloister makes all kinds of sense. I'll give it a go. Should I trade straight up 3 cloisters for 3 simulacrum or go 2 cloisters and bump up one of the other creatures?

April 1, 2014 12:50 a.m.

Devilsmage says...

#63

I would only run 2 Bottled Cloister and I would bump up Walking Atlas by 1 more. Reason I chose atlas is that if you are drawing more cards with running 26 powerful lands in your deck, I would guess you would need to make sure you are playing them when you can. That and he fixes up one of the chump blockers you let go with the other creature coming out.

April 1, 2014 1 a.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#64

Good point. Thanks for the help

April 1, 2014 1:29 a.m.

Devilsmage says...

#65

After doing some research on Bottled Cloister it has a huge flaw in it. If the bottle is destroyed or put into your hand on the opponents turn, the cards that were exiled STAY EXILED...

I am not sure if its worth that kind of risk, as that would give the game away since you would no longer have any cards in hand.

April 1, 2014 12:48 p.m.

Colgate says...

#66

My Legacy list is almost colorless with only 4 colored spell and with only 1 nonartifact spell. It doesn't have any card-drawing abilities. Modern is weaker format than Legacy so you should be able to go without card-drawing at all.

April 1, 2014 6:16 p.m.

JexInfinite says...

#67

Colossus of Akros for maybeboard, or sideboard. SO huge, really easy to get with this deck.

April 7, 2014 6:58 p.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#68

@JexInfinite: I never thought of Colossus of Akros . However, at cmc 8, i'd rather cast one of the eldrazi fatties if I have Eye of Ugin out. If it's out, the cmc's drop to 8, 9 and 13 respectively. If it's not out, it's not a big deal either. Mana isn't too hard to come by. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Have to say I liked your old name better. Maybe I'm just being nostalgic though.

What was the old name again? I totally forgot. Was this the Color? Meh. one?

April 11, 2014 1 a.m.

Caraculiambro says...

#71

@xzzane and Dreno33: Yeah it was color? meh. It had that name for nearly three years. I made some major changes so I thought I'd change that name. Do you think I should change it back?

April 11, 2014 1:02 a.m.

ecowolf2727 says...

#72

I think you should change it back, even though at the top of the page it still calls it Color? meh. for me :3

I changed it back

April 13, 2014 4:01 a.m.

Glad to see it back to what it was. I like Color? Meh. so much more.

Wurmcoil Engine is the bestest, you need like 3 copies in the deck!
