Coward_Token: Go the other way, give everyone 6-7 copies of Dark Confidant and watch people panic as they rip a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth as their first reveal.

Hello fellow superfriend. I like your deck but I have to question some card choices and come with some suggestions. First of how do you make your Valakut trigger? You dont have nerly enough mountains... Second why did you choose ulamog, the ceasless hunger over some other titan like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth? Third and last why do you play Karn Liberated and Ashiok, Nightmare Muse? I personaly think Karn is to slow and I cant really think of a reason to play Ashiok, Nightmare Muse.

You already have Oath of Teferi and Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God add Aminatou, the Fateshifter for a three card combo to win. She is also very strong on her own in a SF deck. Faith's Reward could be considered aswell. Uping the lands to 38 or add more manarocks could also be a good thing here.

I hope I dont sound rude, I just want to help and share my view. +1 from me.

awsome! also i did some more digging for you and found some cards you might want :)

and don't forget to add in some fetch lands so you can thin out your deck and improve your chances of drawing the things you need. (when I mean fetch lands...I mean cards like Evolving Wilds or Scalding Tarn

also add in a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or a Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre to prevent mill decks or to just reset after a bored wipe

Thanks for the comment and the feedback! These are all great ideas. This deck's plan is more based around maximising the cost reduction and storming off playing creatures. For that reason it's more important to the strategy to get one counter on as many creatures as possible, and the second counter is generally not important or necessary. Hence no Hardened Scales.

As mentioned in the description, my play group has some restrictions on our casual decks, and that means that Sol Ring is banned. I suspect you're right that Selesnya Signet is probably worth it. I was loathe to include noncreatures since they can slow you down while storming through your deck.

Finally, Emrakul, the Promised End and the other Eldrazi are all super sweet inclusions here. This current build is optimised to basically deck yourself because it's the most fun to goldfish (So maybe Kozilek, Butcher of Truth deserves a slot? So expensive though.), but if you plan to build something with Hamza to play against actual opponents I agree having some pieces like Emrakul would be really strong.

Debatra on ETG Graveyard shuffling?

I'm looking for any Commander-legal cards like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth that can potentially reshuffle your graveyard into your library multiple times. I could just keep running Kozilek, but I'm trying to get Annihilator out of all of my decks.

I highly recommend adding Kozilek, Butcher of Truth if you have one/can afford one/use proxies. I found having an automatic buffer against milling myself to be hugely important in multiplayer settings. I also like not having to worry about discarding good cards because everything eventually comes back.

I built my own version of Konrad that has evolved quite a lot since last year, and it's a blast (Ladies & Gentlemen, Mister Konrad Twitty..).

Two artifact you may seriously want to look into is Altar of the Brood and Mesmeric Orb; both create silly amounts of value with Konrad out..

Another thing is that it would be worth investing in one (or both) of the oldschool Eldrazi Titans (Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre/Kozilek, Butcher of Truth); both to prevent you from accidentally milling yourself out, and it opens up the use of Morality Shift as an instant Wincon..
