seshiro_of_the_orochi, that affects your opponents lands and creatures and if able we would like to mitigate this interaction, however it isn't a bad idea when coupled with copying the ability and talking creatures for mana with a Cryptolith Rite .

What I really dislike is when someone fervently insults you and your build when they might have zero idea as to why it's designed that way.

  • "Oh God, you're playing 16 sources of ramp?? Dude Golgari Locket is absolute shit! It's garbage you fucking moron! If you wanna get good you need to cut all this crap out!"

Okay, first of all, go fuck yourself. Secondly, I'm in 3 colors with high-cost cards. I want my mana to be well beyond efficient. That means plenty of 1-2-3 drop ramps. And yeah maybe Hour of Promise is shit in most decks but when I can tutor out a Gaea's Cradle and a Serra's Sanctum and generate tons of mana, or a Field of the Dead and a Prismatic Vista and land two 2/2 Zombois, crack Vista and fetch a basic and land a third 2/2 and have all doubled to 6x 2/2s thanks to my Anointed Procession followed by the Second Harvest I've got in hand, well now I have 18x 2/2s in play. (3 doubled to 6. Then 6 more doubled to 12. 6 + 12 is 18). Oh. And now that I have tons of mana thanks to that Turn 3 Cryptolith Rite , I'mma go and dump a haymaker on your dumb ass with an X=23 Debt to the Deathless next turn that I drew by cracking that Golgari Locket you complained so much about.


Just because a deck isn't designed the way YOU would build it, doesn't mean it's shit.

And I can not stand people being negative assholes over it. Like. Just shut up and draw so I can win next turn.

TheVectornaut on Human to Eldrazi Conversion

It looks like your breakpoint for Eldritch Evolution is at 3 mana, but the single copy of Gisela is the only creature you can tutor for at that point that costs more than the sacrificed creature. If you want Evolution to be the Birthing Pod for this deck, I'd suggest adding more threats that cost 4-5 mana. Fives are particularly valuable since they can themselves be sacced to find Bruna or Deceiver of Form . Sticking with the Eldrazi type, Emrakul's Hatcher , Kozilek's Channeler , and the popular Reality Smasher seem like they'd be the most effective. The world's your oyster if you don't mind running other creature types. Stormbreath Dragon , Sigarda, Host of Herons , Baneslayer Angel , and Thragtusk are some picks recommended by the internet as the best modern creatures on 5. If you prefer having only the biggest baddest threats in the 7-9 range, I'd cut Evolution entirely for more ramp in Cryptolith Rite / Citanul Hierophants , From Beyond / Awakening Zone , or really whatever other options you prefer. Another card I'd consider cutting is Kozilek's Return since it will wipe out all of your tokens (even after upgrading with Emrakul's Evangel ) unless you're lucky enough to also have Eldrazi Monument out. Maybe Mizzium Mortars could be your sweeper if that's what you're looking for. A final cut I'd make is the odd fifth copy of Game Trail . Unless that's a typo, you don't typically want to run more than 4 copies of nonbasics, even in casual. Plus, your deck looks like it could use more white and colorless mana sources anyway. An interesting option that jumped to my mind was Westvale Abbey  Flip since you already have a human token theme. Some other tribal picks that might fit are Champion of the Parish , Thalia's Lieutenant , and Mayor of Avabruck  Flip.

Let me know if you have any questions and good luck! (BTW, I'm not a great sideboard builder, but I do know eldrazi make use of Warping Wail and Oblivion Sower in addition to the more traditional hate artifacts.)

And definitely would add Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy and Thrasios, Triton Hero . Both are extremely powerful in this color wedge, and enable you to make more mana off your dorks and then do interesting things with that mana. Seeing as your deck is mostly creature based, Kinnan can help you find exactly the creatures you want and "cheat" them onto the field. Thrasios helps you filter through your deck faster, get lands onto the field. And--if you have infinite mana--from say, Peregrine Drake + Deadeye Navigator or from Cryptolith Rite + Horseshoe Crab + Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy then you can use Thrasios to draw out your entire deck and do fun things with that.

If you decide to go this route, I would also look at Pili-Pala + Heavy Arbalest , bc that plus Kinnan is inifinite damage, for the low cost of 2 generic mana. (just spend 2 mana from any source to untap Pili-Pala to get 2 mana, tap it for dmg from Heavy Arbalest, use the 2 mana to untap it again to net that 2 mana right back to you... rinse repeat to infinity). Maybe that's for a different deck though.

BiggRedd54 on Mazirek, Insect Tribal

If you had $5 to spend, I’d pick up a Sol Ring , Arcane Signet , and a Golgari Signet . Creatures are cool, but you will have to sacrifice some of your insects to add creatures and they are easier to remove and die to board wipes.

Maybe something like Cryptolith Rite down the road...
