Some cards I've found that you may want to consider: Seal Away is low CMC and has flash for a surprise when they swing, Cast Out comes with cycling to help you draw if you really need it, Brain Maggot has a small body but can grab anything nonland from their hand, Baffling End may be better than silkwrap depending on what creatures you're up against normally. Dire Tactics / Anguished Unmaking are unconditional creature removal, at the cost of some life. Maybe even Bane of Bala Ged for fun. Finally Warping Wail has some flexibility that you may find useful.
I personally would drop Grip of Desolation . For 6 mana you'll want to be doing more than what it offers, could play two or three spells instead even. Maybe add more copies of Utter End in its place, or Vraska's Contempt can hit 'walkers and creatures, and the two life is a nice touch.
I hope you find this helpful, neat deck and best of luck with it!

I have a big-mana deck that I am thinking of running Spawnsire of Ulamog in since it allows me to cast any number of Eldrazi from outside the game.
EDH is a singleton format. So my deck may only include 1 of each copy, lest basic lands. However, my deck doesn't contain, say, 10 copies of Bane of Bala Ged . So am I allowed to have 10 copies of Bane of Bala Ged ? You know, as a bit of an extreme example.
What about cards out of my deck's color identity? If my deck is mono-green, may I have a black (Colorless with Devoid, but black in required mana to cast it) Dominator Drone ? After all, it's not in my starting deck. Since EDH doesn't allow sideboards, it's not in there either.
Tying the two questions together, could I cast 20 Dominator Drone s? 20 of them would all see each other and trigger their abilities, which is collectively causing each opponent to lose a total of 40 life, becoming a wincon.
Lastly, since WOTC has a page on banned cards;
And on this page it specifically says the following:
- "If a card appears on the banned list for your chosen format, then you may not include that card in your deck or sideboard. Doing so makes your deck illegal to play in any sanctioned tournaments for that format."
But again, if Emrakul, the Aeons Torn isn't technically in my starting deck, then my starting deck isn't technically illegal. Since Emrakul is outside of my deck, is she fine to bring into play? Because again, the legality seems to imply she can't be in my library or as a Commander. Well, she isn't?
Personally, since there opens a lot of issues with Spawnsire of Ulamog , I think Spawnsire should be banned. But since it isn't, it's worth asking. If not for anything else other than as a page for reference when players down the road inevitably have the same thoughts.

Luckily, a lot of the suspend cards are super cheap.
Other than those, you may consider:
Thryx, the Sudden Storm: Helps to protect your biggies when they come out of suspend.
Aminatou's Augury: So much value.
Arcanis the Omnipotent: Good card draw and suspended creatures have haste. This one is over a dollar though.
Ulamog's Crusher: Budget annihilator.
Bane of Bala Ged: Pseudo annihilator.
Tyrant of Discord: Card advantage is best when your opponents lose cards/permanents.
Sphinx of the Final Word: In case their is a spell slinging subtheme.
AEtherize: Having giant spells suspended can put a target on you. This buys you time.
Mind's Desire: Free stuff acceleration.
Thought Reflection: Double draw.
Swarm Intelligence: Double spells.
Double Vision: More double spells.

For that kind of ability, saluma, it would be simpler to just have a creature with "When ~ enters the battlefield, tap any number of other untapped creatures you control. Create X ~/~ creature tokens equal to the number of creatures tapped this way." Putting into the mana cost without it being an X/X seems a bit odd to me. It's already true that Convoke can only be used by tapping creatures, but it can also satisfy colored mana requirements if the tapped creature shares a color. If we're thinking of a card like Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis where you can only cast the card by using convoke, you can up the power of it a lot since it's harder to cast a spell without using any mana. That depends on if Benthehen333 wants to add Convoke as another ability to the set or not. It can be pretty decently rephrased without using the keyword (kind of like how landfall keeps appearing in sets without the actual landfall word appearing like with Tatyova, Benthic Druid or pseudo annihilator on Bane of Bala Ged).

Lanzo493 I do love Seedborn Muse but it will remain solidly on the "upgrade list" for now. It will probably be one of the first upgrades if I decide the up the budget of the deck. Bane of Bala Ged is in the deck, I tried to use most of the budget Eldrazi.

Have you tried Seedborn Muse? Works great with your commander's activated ability and is worth the price. A cheap, but strong, card you can also add is Bane of Bala Ged. Eldrazi are always good potions in a ramp deck.

Some updates for Kozilek, the Great Distortion:
Through play-testing and game-play, Strionic Resonator and Manifold Key have been the heavy-hitters. The ability to copy triggered abilities with Strionic Resonator has made eldrazi cast and annihilator triggers game-ending. Additionally, pairing Manifold Key with Strionic Resonator is unimaginably powerful! The ability to untap Mana Vault and Basalt Monolith has been very valuable too, and an unblockable Blightsteel Colossus is just mean!
I have not drawn Whispersilk Cloak yet.
Silent Arbiter has been helpful in containing combat numbers.
I have not missed the three Wastes.
Bane of Bala Ged's attack trigger has not been missed.
There has not been a moment in any game where I thought to myself "I could really use Soul of New Phyrexia" when compared to the recently added cards.
Thank you again for your suggestions and taking time to peruse this deck list! It has been helpful!
