How fast can you get Proginitus out usually?

February 11, 2016 12:53 a.m.

Why arent you running the new kozilek?

February 20, 2016 10:42 p.m.

Tough to say for sure, SofaPotato. I could get Progenitus out by turns 5-7 pretty regularly... if it weren't for my meddlesome opponents wrecking my stuff all the time. Turns out that my playgroup fears this deck and does everything they can to prevent me from ramping up to Eldrazi-town. It's quite common to watch my Plans A, B and C all be ruined... but then still come back to wreck face with an unexpected Plan D.

As for new Kozilek Rakdar, I just wasn't super impressed with him right off the bat. The card draw element is nice, for sure. The discard to counter a spell feels... janky and menace is okay. When Oath was released, I was more focused on including the more impressive new Eldrazi (World Breaker, Endbringer, Mimic, Deepfathom Skulker). Now that I'm happy with everything else I suppose I should consider new Kozi. Just not sure what to take out to make room for him.

Honestly romer, id cut one of the less powerful eldrazi cards you have. Drawing 5 for a a coutnerspell engine that gets you between 4-7 cards that has evasion and 12 power is better then 2 10/10s a 5 mana aggro creature taht does nothing when your behind a triple menace 11 mana creature or a 3/2 haste generator that you never want to cast on turn 2. I also suggest running more rocks and the pain lands. Oh and dotn forget refecting pool since it taps for literally anything. Everflowing chaloice would be fine. Herte if you want me to make more suggestions just ask

Yeah Rakdar, good call - I'm taking out Desolation Twin. A pair of 10/10's for 10 mana (provided I cast it) is alright but never as exciting as the other good stuff in here. Welcome New Kozi!

Quicksilver Amulet? Does not trigger Cast abilities but who cares when you can have Emmy or Ulamog by the turn 5?

Also maybe you could try Rakdos, Lord of Riots. Attack with an Eldrazi, cast Rakdos, then cast other Eldrazi for free.

Vampiric Tutor, if you want another tutor

September 4, 2016 7:56 p.m.

As someone who has played Colorless with Kozilek in the cmd zone for over 2 years (see Kozilek,The Great Distortion of the Boardstate) i can tell you what basically everyone else will tell you. It That Betrays is horribly win-more, so unless its a pet card of yours you should find an alternative. Maybe Solemn Simulacrum

September 4, 2016 9 p.m.

lil_cheez I initially avoided Quicksilver Amulet because I didn't want to miss out on the cast triggers of the Eldrazi titans, but having played the deck a fair amount I think you're completely right: The ability to get those titans in play that soon is more powerful than the extra cast trigger.

I can see what you mean QuietMyth. It That Betrays is pretty win-more. Therefore, I'm on the hunt for a Quicksilver Amulet to replace It That Betrays.

Yeah McKz, Vampiric Tutor is a great tutor. Not sure what I'd take out to make room for it at the moment so I might Ponder it for a bit.

Definately a nice build

But what on earth? Why the world aren't you using Herald of Kozilek

And I mguessing emrakuls disgusting eldrazis from eldritch moon are out of the question (emerge/meld/transform)

But for one suggestion trust me your going to thank me big time for this.

Spreading Plague every time a colored creature enters the field it sweeps the board immediatel. And guess what none of your devoid eldrazis get touched by it if a green creature came in World Breaker will not die.

May 11, 2017 5:10 p.m.

Hoooooly shiiit TheDeckMaker2300! Yes, Spreading Plague definitely needs to be a part of this! Thank you, I totally forgot about this weirdo card.

Oh and I added Herald of Kozilek back in. I lost it a while back when making room for other spells but I could use the extra cost reduction.

Just a question, but would it throw off the balance if you somehow threw in Ugin, the Spirit Dragon ? considering it has a higher possibility of gaining its ultimate and or secondary. I see its benefits but im not seeing if it could throw this deck in particular off even though it is colorless.Thx.

Krosan Drover for an extra high cast cost help

Just curious if Progenitus is the best choice for a commander/compared him to Ramos?

October 20, 2017 8:40 a.m.

Interesting proposal tripwyre89! I hadn't even considered Ramos, Dragon Engine as a commander for this deck but I see why he's worth considering.

Ramos' ability sounds great in a 5-colour deck but this particular 5-colour deck is unusual: It's mostly colourless! Currently 68 of the cards are colourless, leaving only 31 cards that would trigger Ramos' ability. Of those 31 coloured cards, 22 of them contain only 1 colour and would therefore only add 1 counter to Ramos. Seems like his main abilities aren't going to offer a huge benefit in this deck as I would only occasionally be adding counters to him and typically only one at a time.

Thematically, I think Progenitus makes the most sense: Better to have a huge scary monster leading an army of monsters, rather than a dragon.

Impact-wise: This deck ramps hard but only 1/4 of it is Eldrazi, so having a big bad monster ready in the command zone is pretty nice. When Progenitus comes out, people need to deal with him. I'm not sure Ramos is going to have as large an impact on the game: The potential to create mana sounds good but I'm concerned it'll be 5 or more turns with Ramos in play before I can actually pull counters off and get some value out of him.

For now, I'm gonna stick with Progenitus. But I'll start keeping an eye on how often I'm playing coloured spells to see if Ramos would pay off or not.

Krosan Drover is a nice find, iLLu51v3, but only helping creature spells that cost 6 or more feels a little limited and I'm so pressed for space as it is, I think I'll pass on it. This deck ramps pretty consistently, so I think I'm okay without it. I'll keep it in mind in the future if I find I'm a little mana-shy on being able to cast the big dudes.

Would farseek be better than natures lore??

December 11, 2017 11:01 p.m.

Hey SofaPotato, I think it depends on what your bigger priority is: Farseek gives more versatility as it can fetch a bigger variety of lands, while Nature's Lore lets the land come into play untapped, helping you ramp faster.

In this deck, I prefer Nature's Lore because I want to ramp as fast as I can. I've offset the drawback of "only" getting to look for a Forest by running all 10 Shock lands so I can usually find a Forest-shock that gives me whatever other colour I need.

December 12, 2017 1:49 a.m.

Have you considered running the vivid lands? Are you familiar with Cryptic Gateway? I have it in my 4 color Eldrazi edh deck and it works wonders if you have a couple scions/spawns out. Defense of the Heart is pretty ridiculous in the early game.

January 4, 2018 3:55 a.m.

I like the idea of the vivid lands, Brutal_B, but I need to go fast with this deck so I've tried to avoid lands that enter tapped where possible.

How does your Eldrazi deck do for tokens / bigger Eldrazi? When I first made this deck, I tried to incorporate both the big Eldrazi and tokens but found I was struggling to do well at either strategy. I ended up taking out most of the token-bits and shortly after that I removed Cryptic Gateway, too. Definitely a good card - I just often don't have Eldrazi out until I have big Eldrazi out.

Defense of the Heart, yes it's hard to argue with. Putting that on the table while playing Eldrazi typically means someone will take it out before it goes off, but then they use their removal on my enchantment and not the actual Eldrazi that come out. And the rare times DotH actually goes off, hello Eldrazi Titan Bros!

January 4, 2018 5:18 a.m.

I also run Awakening Zone and From Beyond as well as Parallel Lives and Anointed Procession along with the Eldrazi spells/creatures that give me tokens. So my tokens come out pretty steadily most of the time. I plan on getting Ashnod's Altar so I can sac for 2 colorless instead of one...and then if Dictate of Erebos is out its just more of a pay off. Corrupted Crossroads for some mana fixing and Tomb of the Spirit Dragon for some lifegain.

January 4, 2018 5:37 a.m.

Im curious as to how much this deck would cost to build from scratch. I know the prices of some of the bigger cards, like Progenitus and the Eldrazi Titans, but what about the others?
