Blisterpod

Creature — Eldrazi Drone

Devoid (This card has no color.)

When Blisterpod dies, put a 1/1 colorless Eldrazi Scion creature token onto the battlefield. It has "Sacrifice this creature: Add to your mana pool."

Thanks viewtifulstyle!

I think you're right, it does feel a little slow. I thought the card early card draw from Salvage Drone would speed up the deck by helping me draw into my combo pieces, but maybe focusing on ramping up to play what I already have in my hand is the better choice. I don't know if I have any room for more interaction, but I can try swapping out salvage drone for Blisterpod to see if it's better.

Thanks wallisface! Adding the 0 fixed it, I don't know why I didn't think of that haha

I always appreciate advice, so this is very much appreciated!

You're totally right about everything you said there. I've tried playing this deck in it's current state a few times and it just does not play consistently. At some point I'm going to try and remake this deck, this time starting with 1 CMC creatures like Salvage Drone or Blisterpod and going up to 7 or 8 CMC for Bane of Bala Ged and maybe Elder Deep-Fiend. I'll also ditch the late game cards for some earlier game interaction and try to make it not so dependent on Pyre of Heroes.

Thanks again for the advice, I'll use it to try and make this an actually viable deck!

Ooh if you're set on comboing with Retribution of the Ancients, then Young Wolf could perhaps replace Blisterpod since he's another Undying body.

Hi wallisface,thanks for your comment! 1) i prefering the addictional cost of Spark Harvest. 2) i can increase creatures but Blisterpod and Butcher Ghoul are valid for two. and you can utilize Butcher Ghoul many times with Retribution of the Ancients

lalalalala on blue black eldrazi deck ( need help )

I have made an eldrazi deck if you want to check that out but if you don't feel like checking it out here are some tips. Eldrazi Mimic is a really good card in eldrazi decks and I run 4 of it in mine. Conduit of Ruin is also a really good card for finding your big eldrazi and gives you some mana reduction but don't run 4 in your deck, I would only run 2-3. Idk how you feel about taking out black from the deck but I did in my deck and it has worked out. I would change black to green and put in 4 Blisterpod and 3-4 Call the Scions or maybe 1-2 From Beyond Those are all cheapish cards for your deck. If you are okay with spending a lot of money I would get Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger or Kozilek, the Great Distortion or Reality Smasher And finally I would take out Eldrazi Skyspawner and Cultivator Drone if you are fine with taking cards out.

Nevinyrral's Disk has been printed recently, so its fairly cheap and helps the gameplan.

In terms of dies triggers, Thragtusk or Whisperwood Elemental are the ideal 'leaves behind a body', persist creatures like Safehold Elite or Heartmender offer some extra options. Blisterpod and the like exist, but 1/1s are rarely a fast enough clock to close out before the boardstate gets big again.

Alternative cheats include Blizzard Brawl , Darkmoss Bridge cycle etc.

If I was trying to push this to fnm competitive, I'd throw in Upheaval and mana rocks to try and get a reliable '6 mana, win the game' turn.

Morophon isn't doing much for this deck without Jodah or Fist of Suns so maybe try playing it in the 99 and use Golos, Tireless Pilgrim as the commander. Golos lets you cheat mana costs, ramps you, and is colourless to match the theme.

The biggest problem with eldrazi tribal is that eldrazi themselves aren't a unifying tribe as their effects support multiple different strategies which dilutes the power of each of those strategies. This can lead to dead draws and non synergistic board states which will make the deck feel clunky. The most prominent themes among eldrazi are aristocrats, tokens, and stompy so pick one of those as your primary focus. Aristocrats and tokens strategies synergize well however a stompy strategy requires entirely different support.

My friend has an Animar, Soul of Elements eldrazi tribal deck but his emphasis is on big stompy creatures so the deck is designed to have pay offs for playing those. Sarkhan's Unsealing , Sneak Attack , Temur Ascendancy , etc. He has some game ending combos like Animar + Cloudstone Curio + Eldrazi so it can win through non combat damage.

For aristocrats look at Pawn of Ulamog , Dark Prophecy , Moldervine Reclamation , Blisterpod , Ashnod's Altar , Grave Pact , Patriarch's Bidding , Haunting Voyage , Pyre of Heroes , etc.

I can't really suggest much more before you decide which direction to take the deck in.
