11/01/24 - Update after a couple of games vs the other Precons (January, pre- upgrades)

As a value engine, Carmen is shockingly good. When people realized just how good she was she drew a lot of hate. People were sacrificing clues, treasures, fetch lands etc. and playing right into it. When I remembered she actually has a life gain ability i was cruising just above starting life total for a while. I think I'm justified in my choice to give her a little more protection.

Etchings of the Chosen was fantastic protection but ate a removal spell after one turn. I definitely want to keep that one in the deck.

I was able to avoid losing her to red interaction by saccing as much stuff as possible to sac outlets to make her too big to die to the damage but the issue was some of the other precons built up large board states which meant I had to use wipes and Carmen herself became so expensive to re-cast I could do little else on my turns.

I'm hoping once I've replaced the traditional wipes with mass-sacrifice effects like Single Combat and Cataclysmic Gearhulk I can easily deal with big boards while keeping Carmen.

Glass-Cast Heart was very good at both generating blood tokens which pump her as well as looting stuff into the graveyard, and also chucked out some helpful blockers at a pinch. I'm considering a Collector's Vault along the same lines (loots and provides a token to sacrifice).

The ability to bring the same creature back the combat after the main phase where you sacrifice it is very handy. I've been looking at Gravelighter as a perfect example of this, so I would cast the Gravelighter first main, sac it and force each opponent to sac a creature, grow Carmen by 4 power then swing in and return the Gravelighter - drawing a card, because it had died already - and forcing another three sacrifices growing Carmen by 4 again to 10 power. Its like a miniature board wipe. I think Gravelighter is definitely impactful enough to want to put into month 1 so I'm pulling out Cliffhaven Vampire for a later month. This is really only in there as a combo with Exquisite Blood and I have already decided not to bother with Epicure of Blood, my thinking is get the synergistic pieces in place first as the combo is something you're only going to draw into by chance so trying to force it in month 1 is a waste of time.

I just bought some Collector's Vaults and I have a few Breach the Multiverses too. Not a bad idea at all

On the low-CMC end, Collector's Vault has really put in some sneaky-good work for me. Building my GY, filtering cards, & ramping for next turn.

TheBestMagicCard on Emrakul, the Promised End

So, after all that conversation and consideration, I did end up putting Temple of the False God in a special land slot, which I think rebalanced the land base to like 38 technical lands, but 4 of them being "special" because they are conditional and/or don't always produce land.

Also, I ended up deciding to put The One Ring in, because it's busted, and the deck wanted more card-draw anyways.

Now, I had always wanted a way to recur Eldrazi triggered abilities, and had considered cards like Strionic Resonator, or Abstruse Archaic, but I never felt like they really quite cut it...

Another option would be to return Eldrazi to my hand and re-cast them with bounce effects, but in colorless that's a little bit limited. Erratic Portal has been in and out of this deck a lot through the years, sometimes I thought it was worth the condition and mana price, and sometimes I didn't... but it always kind of seemed like the best option even if not great... I had also always cosidered Umbilicus and Blood Clock, but never really thought they'd be good enough to include.

But once I decided to put The One Ring in, it made a little more sense to put Umbilicus and Blood Clock in, even though I think this is a little janky, the fact that it also synergizes with Eldrazi was a bonus... so then I decided to put the original Ulamog and Kozilek in too, which I had previously excluded, just because I thought the new ones were a little more versatile, and I thought that Annihilator is a cheap and OP mechanic... but now with 3 ways to bounce Eldrazi back to re-cast, as well as The One Ring synergy, it seemed like a more viable strat...

And then they printed Roaming Throne. I've included this in the decklist as an Eldrazi, even though it isn't actually Eldrazi, so doesn't get noticed by Eye of Ugin or Eldrazi Temple, but you choose Eldrazi type as it enters, so it is an Eldrazi on the battlefield, even thought there is currently nothing that really synergizes with Eldrazi creature type on the battlefield, except this card. This is the ideal copy-an-effect card for Eldrazi! All the titans have triggered abilities, and this just automatically copies them if you choose Eldrazi as it's type, for free, whenever an ability triggers! It's so good, and makes the other janky bounce cards even more worth including. Imagine Emrakul's cast trigger copied, or Annihilator triggers... It's so much better then Abstruse Archaic or Strionic Resonator ultimately, because it's free, and happens every time instead of having to tap for just one ability once...

So now, yeah, I'm bouncing Eldrazi to recast and get triggers, and copying those triggers, and I think it works... I like it!

Ultimately, I added Temple of the False God, The One Ring, Umbilicus, Bloodclock, Roaming Throne, and oh yeah, Collector's Vault, because it's card draw, and discard, and makes treasures... Still trying it out, but it seems p versitile...

This commander is really fun but it's a shame there aren't more decks. Anyways, really need to get my hands on a mother of machines but I think I got a pretty great deck list, it's got some eggs and stuff like Collector's Vault that makes the deck much more consistent.

Hi Profet93 I will include Sanctum of Ugin as soon I will buy it. Regarding Endless Atlas, I will replace it with Collector's Vault. Today I have included Cityscape Leveler and removed Titan's Presence.
