Thrasios and Kydele: Eldrazi Envoys

Commander / EDH Aggro Eldrazi G/U (Simic) Ramp

MegaMatt13


Description

Thrasios and Kydele are using their wizardy to summon giant eldrazi to the plane! They use their ability to flood you with mana and card draw to drown out opponents with card draw. Giant Eldrazi or a massive Genesis Wave finish off opponents. This deck is for you if you like to have an excuse to draw insane amounts of cards and swing with giant Eldrazi.

More description coming soon.

This isn't a combo deck or win via Laboratory Maniac deck.

Like that you went for another theme!

It takes a little set-up but Illusionist's Bracers could be useful for copies of Kaseto's ability.

Nature's Will might be nice for mana tricks too.

Abres_Tenelles, thanks for the suggestion. I could see Nature's Will working well in here!

Cephalid Constable is amazing, especially if you can buff it a little.

Lure of Prey, Green Sun's Zenith and Lurking Predators, as well as the hideaway lands can help you cheat in your big creatures. Also Chord of Calling is great because it's an instant.

Cool idea, I think I want to give this a spin later (note to self!) as I think I have most of the things you included. Have you fired a successful Genesis Wave out of this? I presently have only one copy and I struggle with decision where to actually employ it, results were surprisingly poor in an old Selesnya deck where I last used it.

Velkaarn, thanks for your interest in the deck. It's still in its development but it is a lot of fun to play.

Yes, Genesis Wave works great in here. This deck produces so much mana that I've been able to cast it for insane amounts and get a lot of value. I'd only suggest it in a deck that's 75% or more permanents so that you get a lot of value off it.

I think my main issue with the previous deck I used the wave in was too many X-cost creatures, those don't really mix well!

Alright, an actual suggestion came to mind from last game session with Eldrazi, Void Winnower frustrated my opponents a great deal and they spent a lot of energy and effort in trying to rid of it while ignoring other threats, so if you have one you might want to give it a try?

Seedborn Muse, Awakening, and Training Grounds, have all proved to be complete game changers in my Thrasios & Kydele, Infinite Partners deck. The sheer number of times you can activate Thrasios's ability in a round with any of these cards is astounding. Awakening, unlike the Muse, is often allowed to resolve and stay in the field for a round, since your opponents think they will be able to benefit from it too. This quickly changes to an entire playgroup scrambling to remove it once they see just how much more it benefits you. And Training Grounds has proven to pay off far more than I'd expected. If you have 6 mana, you're activating Thrasios's ability 3 times instead of 1.

I linked my deck above. It's a combo version, so a lot of it isn't going to be along the lines you're looking, but if you're interested there are some good non-combo pieces in there.

Overall, very good deck. I love seeing these two actually partnered together.

I've found that Patron Wizard is also a fantastic card, since both your commanders are wizards. Plus, you can tap him and your commanders even with summoning sickness, due to the wording of the ability.

Sorry, I missed that you already had Training Grounds...

Velkaarn, I've thought about Void Winnower. Being on the receiving end of it before, I find him a little too "unfun" to play against. Certainly a powerful creature though.

RUST-O, glad you like. World Breaker is on my list of cards to get. Zegana I could also see going in here. With elder deep-fiend, I've had him in a different deck before and found him a bit too expensive for his effect even with the emerge cost. He is certainly on theme though.

JaysomeDecks, really like your infinite build. Looks deadly to play against. I only have one copy of Seedborn Muse and she is in my Rhys deck where I think she is more needed. I could see myself adding awakening though. Kydele and Thrasios would go bonkers with all that untapping.

For cuts, I see myself cutting trygon predator for world breaker. What other cuts should I make?

Quietman988, thanks for your card suggestions. I've thrown in Mosswort Bridge. I agree it's easy to trigger in here. I've put Lurking Predators into my maybelist. I love that card. It works great in my Xenagos: Zookeeper God deck. I just need to figure out what I'd cut for it in here.

My problem with Lure of Prey and Green Sun's Zenith is that they only work with Green creatures. The beaters I would want to cheat into play are mostly colourless Eldrazi.

Thanks for your help :)
