The first creature spell you cast each turn costs less to cast.

DawnsRayofLight on Eldrazi Tribal/Tron (Help is Appreciated)

1 week ago

@lalalalala: it is definitely getting there. I am going to make some suggestions:

I know this is going to be like "wow now I am running the same Tron as everyone else" but Karn has always been one of my favorite planeswalkers and he is ideal in a list like this

I might run

3x Karn, the Great Creator

2x Karn Liberated

1-2 Ugin, the Ineffable

1-2 All Is Dust

3-4x Golgari Signet or Talisman of Impulse

1x Blast Zone

1x Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth

(for the lands maybe drop a crossroad or two? test the deck and if you feel you are not getting lands consistently enough run 22 or 21, a lot of the TRON lists similar to yours run only 17)

Cards to Drop:

Eldrazi Mimic: It is nice to have a 2 drop but he isn't that strong, if you want an early drop you can run Walking Ballista or Matter Reshaper

Conduit of Ruin: You can maybe be fine with 2 but 4 isn't necessary, I am honestly not a fan but it does at least fetch your big boys, but you may have enough dig with the Ancient Stirrings to drop it altogether. Wurmcoil Engine may be a better 6 drop

Titan's Presence: you may have enough creature removal with Kozilek's Return and Warping Wail. It also gives your opponents information about what you may have in hand. You could drop them to run other cards.

Set up your sideboard like this (for use with Karn)

3x Chalice of the Void: Seriously a good card, I was onto this long before it started getting put in Tron, maybe consider a 1 of in the main to, but basically it allows you to halt a lot of annoying decks in their tracks: affinity, infect, storm, they die to this card. I sided it in one game against an affinity player: played 1 for 0 then the next turn dropped another at 1 and he scooped.

1x Ensnaring Bridge

1x Crucible of Worlds

1x Relic of Progenitus

1x Grafdigger's Cage

1x Pithing Needle

1x Torpor Orb

1x Wurmcoil Engine

1x Ratchet Bomb

1x Trinisphere

1x Blightsteel Colossus: Martyr of sands is making a comeback

2x Wilt: just to counter Blood Moon

Maybeboard for the side

1x Oblivion Stone

Hope this helps!

lalalalala on blue black eldrazi deck ( need help )

3 weeks ago

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.

KiefyWonder on "The Thing" 1982 Movie Deck

This deck has been a blast with those eldrazi bois I threw in there, makes Conduit of Ruin and Tamiyo's Journal have easy picks. And the snow theme and shapeshifting have been a blast against creature based decks. I'm thinking of adding Sakashima of a Thousand Faces to the deck. I ran into the issue of Deceiver of Form revealing Lazav two different times somehow lol, and my Kozilek once, but if I was able to have had Sakashima with 6 Kozilek, Butcher of Truth in play that would down right be meeeeeean. Great job with this build though, will let you know anything else I would add down the road :)

Okay, you have a plan. If you want to get this into Modern, how competitive do you want to be and how much money are you willing to spend?

For at least a couple of starting thoughts, Ivy Elemental is worse here than Endless One , and both of those are worse than Stonecoil Serpent .

You won't get the full effect of Mythos of Nethroi unless you have a Lotus Cobra out, so right now it's expensive creature removal with a conditional upside. Switch it for another Mortality Spear , Maelstrom Pulse , Abrupt Decay , or Assassin's Trophy , depending on your budget. If you add , consider Felidar Sovereign .

Conduit of Ruin only finds It That Betrays , Avenger of Zendikar , and Void Beckoner , and only Void Beckoner might have some use in your main strategy. Take those out and build a different deck around them.

zapyourtumor on Colorless Competative

If you want this to be competitive, you should probably change a few things.

First off you have 26 lands which is way too high. I'd go down to 24.

If you want to have the sideboard artifact toolbox route, I'd go up to a playset of Karns. To make space I would probably cut the Conduit of Ruin s, its a very fun card for casual magic but I just don't think it does enough here besides ramp more.

I disagree with those above, Warping Wail is a very versatile card and hits a lot of creatures. I'd cut 1-2 contortions and add a few Dismember s and wails back.

I'm not sure how good Forsaken Monument is, but its legendary and not as important as Karn which means 4x is definitely overboard.

Mystic Forge is much better in an artifact-storm kind of deck that wants to flood the board with artifacts as fast as possible, I would cut this one altogether.

Sultai_Sir: Ok, so I added Desolation Twin . I guess Conduit of Ruin isn't off the table anymore.

KayneMarco on help me with my morophon eldrazis please!

First off. I would consider using Jodah, Archmage Eternal as the commander for this deck. If you’re set on using Morophon I’ll make these suggestions:

Those suggestions will help get your big fatties into play faster if you haven’t been able to get Jodah or fist of the suns into play. Now onto your mana base. I would consider adding these lands:

If you do use any of these possible additions and if you want any help figuring out what to remove just let me know.

meME12 on help me with my morophon eldrazis please!

Hmmm, I do think that the amount of colorless creatures (that are eldrazi compared) compared to "colored" eldrazi is not enough. Notice that Morophon, the Boundless , reduces the cost by WUBRG and any colorless eldrazi will not cost less. But the deck functions, and works AMAZING WITH Jodah, Archmage Eternal , and Fist of Suns . I would recommend some more tutors to get out combo pieces along with some nice card draw. The deck is rounded out but... it could do with some tweeks. Conduit of Ruin may be a colorless eldrazi but can make things cost less that are colored, Ugin, the Ineffable , Forerunner of Slaughter , and Flayer Drone , both do wonders... Forsaken Monument even buffs your "colored" eldrazi because of the devoid mechanic. Ulamog's Nullifier and Brood Butcher both can do wonders, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove and Dust Stalker , are great... Eladamri's Call , Vampiric Tutor , and Enlightened Tutor all work great, Bring to Light is also great as well.
