Hahahahaha lmfao I was in playtest and got out a playset of It That Betrays on T5.
I got Kinnan out T2 with an activation on T3. Landed It That Betrays.
T4 I got a clone effect.
T5 I was able to activate him twice, and both times landed me another clone effect. Hahaha

Tergrid: It That Betrays in the command zone at CMC 5. Well okay no Annihilator but still.
The World Tree: +1 explosive Arcane Adaptation synergy. Even if it comes down late, mana fixing for rainbow decks isn't too bad either.
Cosmos Charger: Are those extra Sleipnir legs in between each set of regular ones? (...)

Kozilek and Stax is definitely more than enough. I haven’t liked other Titans in my deck because they stop me drawing more cards with Kozilek and they are the wrong cost to use as counterspells with Kozilek’s ability.
Void Winnower is just too good. It That Betrays is also a good include. You might want one big Annihilate guy in there too.
Also, instead of Eldrazi titans, you might find that you get better value for your money buying a mana vault, mox opal or ancient tomb!

This concept seems pretty similar to one of my long-time decks on here: Ultra-Budget Speed Dredge (2x 5-Card "Gold Hands")
I'm not sure what you're talking about in the description with Artisan of Kozilek "temporarily" coming out to "permanently" bring out It That Betrays. You have to actually CAST the Artisan in order for his ability to fire, it doesn't go off just because he enters the battlefield from another card. With a dredge deck, you're casting a different spell to force him into play, not casting him yourself - so his graveyard ability does not fire.

SMELY_ZAJKO Great questions, and I'm stoked you want to this as your first EDH deck!
From my experience playtesting this with others, this deck is great at lying low for the majority of the game until you are ready swoop in, swing hard, and win the game. Since we are using some cards with "lose the game" effects, you need to be really careful and be smart with Obeka, Brute Chronologist; attacking with her or activating her ability at the wrong time can easily lose you the game.
If you want to go with more of a reanimator/big monsters, Obeka becomes less of a danger to yourself and more of a political tool when the combo pieces are removed; her role in the deck transitions to being primarily as a value engine and political piece. Never underestimate her political power through offering an opponent protection from removal, a board wipe, etc. Also, Araumi of the Dead Tide will then become an absolute all star in this deck!
You thankfully don't need to completely reconstruct this deck to have it focus on reanimator. I would remove all the cards listed under the Combo header except for Sneak Attack, Windfall, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, and Cabal Coffers. This would remove seven cards from the deck, so we have seven slots to fill in with reanimator cards. I would suggest adding Stitcher's Supplier and Corpse Connoisseur to help get cards into your graveyard. Glen Elendra Archmage for more protection. Then finally, Sepulchral Primordial, Torrential Gearhulk, Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Diluvian Primordial for big splashy creatures to reanimate.
If you have a larger budget, you can upgrade your big creatures to Wurmcoil Engine, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, It That Betrays, or creatures of the like. Honestly, I would just choose your favorite big creatures and jam those. I hope this helps!

Y'all, mayhaps All Is Dust?? Bomb the board and load yourself up with a CRAP-TON of mana. The best part is, even if your opponents try to use a sac outlet to get rid of their guys on their own terms, you get treasure tokens.
