Description

My most streamlined Eldrazi mana-ramping deck to date.

Ok, I admit, maybe not the MOST streamlined that it could be, but I can only work with cards that I actually have.

As per standard for a deck such as this Elvish Archdruid serves as a big mana producer, and pumps up the other elves, most of which also provide mana-ramping like Llanowar Elves and the power to untap forests provided by Arbor Elf. The biggest surprise, however, lies in Elvish Piper, which with a single green mana can turn your 15-mana-costing Emrakul, the Aeons Torn into a quick 1-coster to lay waste to your opponents, as well as the other Eldrazi.

Fauna Shaman is great for some evil combos, I need to get more to put in here. Send any creatures to the grave to bring another from your deck to your hand. Bring an Elvish Piper and summon that Emrakul earlier than expected. Send It That Betrays and bring an Artisan of Kozilek to put in play, bringing out two Eldrazi for the price of one.

All those who worship the Eldrazi, join and tell me what you feel about the deck.

Well since you're only working with cards you have I can't really offer any suggestions on card input however I will note that with all the mana your producing with your creatures alone you can afford to drop the land count, when I play tested it I found a few hands where I drew nothing but land and no mana producing creatures or eldrazi. Fauna Shaman helped immensely with that problem in most occasions, but you totally could throw in the boss eldrazi besides Emrakul. Also the deck is Modern, you can change the format tag.

Been looking for great ways to wreck with my Eldrazi(wish I had as many as you) and I believe you have "raised the path"! I'm thinking about posting an elf/goblin/eldrazi deck soon, but I'm really diggin this deck! I also agree that you might not need so much land... but anyway, thanks for sharing and +1 from me!

Get some Elvish Piper s. They are freakin evil if you can keep them out. They're so fantastic, turning just about everything into a one-coster

Also, you've never had more fun than killing your opponent with an Eldrazi Conscription powered, 11/11, trample,annihilator 2...Llanowar Elves . Just saying, no matter how strong it gets, it's always fun to think you just beat someone with a Llanowar Elves .

Here is the deal. When this deck works, it is going to destroy. How it is though, I kept retrying and retrying and I just couldn't get the pieces out. If you are going for a fun surprise BAM I WIN deck, then I believe you nailed it. But if you're trying to make it consistent, then I think it will need a little work.

I like the title and the whole concept however. :D Maybe instead of Revenge of the Hunted and -1 or -2 Blessings of Nature you can streamline it just a little more into getting an Eldrazi out!

Yeah, like I said, I can only work with what I got. I don't do 'maybe-boards' and all that. But yeah, not even my MOST evil deck. I created one last year that actually got one of my classmates I played to rage-quit...complete with a table-flip. If I can find it, I'll post it.

Get yourself an Eye of Ugin . It helps a lot with tutoring and cutting down the costs of the big guys.

No Joraga Treespeaker ? It even fits the theme. When you get the other legends, be sure to get rid of the pathrazor, Ulamog and Kozilek are killers on their own. You should consider Primeval Titan too, and Eye of Ugin to fetch your finishers. And if you like the Eye, you could add in some colorless finishers like the Colossi or Wurmcoil Engine

The big problem with Elvish Piper is that since you are not casting the creature (say Emrakul), none of the effects that are triggered "as you cast" will occur. This means that a Pipered Emrakul, the Aeons Torn will not grant an extra turn, and Artisan of Kozilek can't bring anything back from the graveyard. They are, however, still gigantic creatures with Annihilator, just not quite as potent.

I do really like green Eldrazi decks with the original titans. I can say that my favorite combo is with All Is Dust and It That Betrays. Everything that gets blown up with All is Dust just comes over to your side of the table. Insult to injury for sure, but its a neat jab that will probably result with a scoop.

I realize now that the last comment on this deck was almost 4 years ago, lol. Certainly there are many options now to update the deck, especially since we got to return to Zendikar. I'd be interested to see if you've done anything with this over the last few years :)

It's been two months since the creator of this deck has logged in, and over three years since this specific deck's last update.

I know, but I had already typed everything before I realized that. If they ever come back it'll be a nice surprise :)

Desolation Twin is a good two fer. Void Winnower also good. With all the ramp hard casting an Endless One could be beneficial. I believe that Reality Smasher, Thought-Knot Seer and Matter Reshaper should be at minimum two of.
