Emrakul, the Promised End has protection from instants '^^

Chaos Warp can be goofy sometimes, but it's fun anyway. Plus, it can always be there to hit one of your own tokens, worst case scenario.

Red just has a hard time removing enchantments and really big creatures effectively with low mana. Three mana to exile Emrakul, the Promised End at instant speed? That's a good deal.

It is a great card... As an emergency button. Any other use is (usually) suicidal.

High Market - Land, tutorable sac outlet. Also helps prevent theft.

Ancient Tomb/Castle Garenbrig/Eldrazi Temple/Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - Ramp

Boseiju, Who Endures - Removal

Cavern of Souls - Anti blue for commander or Eldrazi

Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth - Utility, make eye of ugin + nonbasics tap for green

Yavimaya Hollow - Protection

Fetchlands - For recursion effects

Emrakul, the Promised End - Best Eldrazi, won me too many games to count.

Kozilek, the Great Distortion - Draw, interaction. Overall solid card with built in evasion to boot.

Scapeshift - Land tutor, finds field and make all the zombie tokens simultaneously. Even better with ancient greenwarden to double triggers

Harmonize - Decent draw spell, worth looking into

Finale of Devastation - Tutor, recursion and wincon all in 1

Green Sun's Zenith - Similar to above

I flipped Chaos Warp off a turn two Jeska's Will once, with no better target than an opponent's Sol Ring. I think I turned it into Emrakul, the Promised End and I have no regrets. That player was my friend for the rest of the game, or at least until I used Settle the Wreckage when it finally had to attack me.

That game still comes up in conversation whenever Chaos Warp is used a tad frivolously in my group. I think I rebuilt my Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire after that, so I can do it every turn :D

How is your land count been treating, do you feel you have enough ramp to justify 32 lands and a avg 4.25 CMC?

Can you list out a deck description so I can provide the best suggestions for your deck?

Given you are likely going the LD route, have you considered something equally as heinous such as Emrakul, the Promised End and Mindslaver? The former is nice because its a body with built in protection and evasion, cost reduces itself and is more tame. The latter is more consistent and is less tame because you do not replace the turn you took. Imagine Crucible of Worlds + Buried Ruin + Rings + mindslaver. Crucible and ruin recur each other, which allows you to recur the other 2.

Nooooooo, it's banned? On tappedout it says it's legal but I looked it up just now on wizard's companion app and you're totally right. It's banned... I'd add Emrakul, the Promised End but all his cool stuff only occurs on "cast" and my deck design doesn't technically "cast" it I think. Boooo. Oh well, there are plenty of cool cards I struggled to fit into this deck so I can find a solid replacement.

Thanks a lot for the help! I haven't bought the cards for this deck yet so you saved me from a pointless card purchase lol.

Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is banned in commander, might want to slot in Emrakul, the Promised End instead. Might also want to dump more mana rocks and lands in since your average CMC is 5.66
