Best Budget Eldrazi Cards?

Commander (EDH) forum

Posted on July 21, 2019, 7:40 p.m. by Arcaneful

Hey all.

Working on a new deck in Kruphix, God of Horizons and wanted to go in an eldrazi tribal direction.

Looking at edhrec there’s a lot of good options, but I’m having trouble deciding on some good budget (under 10$) eldrazi to throw in. I think for sure World Breaker and Kozilek, the Great Distortion should go in, but other than that I can’t decide what’s just a dumb beater and what is actually strong.

Does anyone have any experience with budget eldrazi decks, and if so can you suggest some good budget alternatives to Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger , Kozilek, Butcher of Truth , and the like?

Ulamog's Crusher is a nice threat.

Breaker of Armies is actually a really nice combat trick, allowing you to go for the kill with your better beatsticks unblocked.

Breaker of Armies is some sweet tech!

Desolation Twin isn’t bad since it makes two really big bodies.

Deepfathom Skulker could also be good for some card draw and a rogue’s passage like effect.

From Beyond seems like a good card to generate more Eldrazzi and mana while also doubling as a potential tutor.

Awakening Zone is a similar thing to make more bodies/mana.

Endless One would be one to include since it scales.

Dread Defiler is very good especially if you have high power Eldrazi in the graveyard.

Sorry for the semi-late replies.

Thanks for the ideas! I love this Deepfathom Skulker !

tpmains

Endless One is a great idea. He may just be a dumb beater, but sometimes with something like Breaker of Armies , it should be a blast!

I really like that From Beyond + All Is Dust combo. That's gross!

griffstick:

Spawnsire of Ulamog seems amazing, especially since we as a playgroup allow wish cards.

I'd love Dread Defiler , but I'm sadly Simic colors. I do however love Eldrazi Mimic and Endbringer ! Endbringer's a neat card I've never seen.


Thanks everyone for the help!

I got a few more. Clone , Stunt Double , Mirage Mirror lol kidding but not really. Clones could be a just as strong ad any other Eldrazi

How about Spark Double ? It can copy one of your Eldrazi and enters with an additional +1/+1 counter.

Descendants' Path plus any eldrazi you have in play.... Typically eldrazi spawn tokens for best value.

Descendants' Path + From Beyond and or Awakening Zone makes for some fun stuff at upkeep to cheat an expensive eldrazi into play

I have a question the general your using is blue green yes? The green is obvious whats the blue for? Mind you I wasnt around magic for the second run around with eldrazi I'm set to home with the original rise of eldrazi set whats in colored or devoid blue green eldrazi ??. Blue for draw??

Also little side though I had a 60 card casual mono green eldrazi deck amd before you ask how is that casual, it wasnt big fatty eldrazi like modern or most competitive EDH plays it played. Nest Invader , Kozilek's Predator , Hand of Emrakul , Growth Spasm Awakening Zone simple stuff like that and what I found was having a problem with all these 0/1 tokens on the field so if you have that problem some how in 100cards..... Overwhelming Stampede and cards like that.....food for though
