Emrakul, the Promised End

Legendary Creature — Eldrazi

Emrakul, the Promised End costs less to cast for each card type among cards in your graveyard.

When you cast Emrakul, you gain control of target opponent during that player's next turn. After that turn, that player takes an extra turn.

Flying, trample, protection from instants. ((Remember the acronym debt.) This can't be damaged, enchanted, equipped, blocked or targeted by instants.)

Flarhoon13 on Lazav and Gyruda (Companion): Doom Mind

5 months ago

Lazav had such a good day. He got to be a Champion of Rhonas, cheating out a Kokusho, the Evening Star then, in the same attack, becoming an Old Gnawbone. Seven treasures made but exerted, he then got to enjoy the power of being Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, so, getting to be relevant while tapped and exerted. He got a whiff of what it would be like to be an Emrakul, the Promised End but even though that was not meant to be, Lazav ended the game happy; content in sacrificing other creatures for significant benefit, especially Kairi, the Swirling Sky

Hey, I really like the deck list you've got here. I did, however, notice that you aren't running Brainstealer Dragon which i think would be really good in this deck. I might even suggest taking out Mind Flayer, the Shadow or Emrakul, the Promised End for it, as in my opinion the dragon is a more efficient option for the same mana cost as Mind Flayer, and is more synergistic than Emrakul.

My friend made an eldrazi deck with both Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Emrakul, the Promised End. With the wording on the spawn ability. It refers to just "Emrakul" instead of the cards full name. Say Emrakul, the Aeons Torn was in play already, would playing Emrakul, the Promised End after re-trigger the spawn ability of Aeons torn? Or would this rule from the comprehensive rules (pasted below) apply to that with the vague card naming on the ability?

201.4. Text that refers to the object it's on by name means just that particular object and not any other objects with that name, regardless of any name changes caused by game effects.

Thanks in advance for any help provided!

Telepath is cool, but you wanna know some other cool tech?

Worst Fears , Mindslaver , Emrakul, the Promised End - Why should I politic my opponent when we can play MTG, "together." With Emrakrul, I ask, "who wants an extra turn!?" and then just smile with a sadistic glee. Most people shy away from attacking you when you can just easily tutor for and cast a mindslaver effect and ruin them. Whether its exiling their own commander, or using their own necropotence for suicide, most people don't risk it. It's an all or nothing approach that has a 50/50 success rate.

But on a serious note, I think a lot of politics boils down to the carrot and the stick mentality, a lot like real life politics.Consequences for every action, determining how to navigate threats and advocate for yourself in the face of the adversity of others.

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
