Kozilek, the Great Distortion Discussion

Massacar on Budget Kozilek Ramp

I would consider adding more artifact ramp cards to increase the speed you can cast Kozilek, the Great Distortion.

All of these cards are relatively budget (they cost between 1-4 dollars on average), I could suggest more depending on how "budget" this deck is.

Basalt Monolith, Fellwar Stone, Fractured Powerstone, Gilded Lotus, Lotus Petal, Ur-Golem's Eye

Also Helm of Awakening to lower all of your mana costs.

If Jegantha, the Wellspring is your companion, you'll need to highlight that. Also, you have 18 sideboard cards. All Is Dust, Oblivion Stone and Mystic Forge would be my recommendations for the 3 cards to get rid of. You don't really need to reload on action, but if you really want to, I had some succes with a sideboard Kozilek, the Great Distortion.

As a former tron player, I otherwise think it looks really good. Like the idea of the one Golos. Personally wouldn't mind a Ghost Quarter over one of the Blast Zones.

Some updates for Kozilek, the Great Distortion:

Whispersilk Cloak, Manifold Key, Silent Arbiter, Strionic Resonator and Basalt Monolith have been added to the deck.

Bane of Bala Ged, Soul of New Phyrexia and three Wastes have been removed.

Currently I do not have an available copy of Voltaic Key. When it becomes available it will replace a Wastes.

Through play-testing and game-play, Strionic Resonator and Manifold Key have been the heavy-hitters. The ability to copy triggered abilities with Strionic Resonator has made eldrazi cast and annihilator triggers game-ending. Additionally, pairing Manifold Key with Strionic Resonator is unimaginably powerful! The ability to untap Mana Vault and Basalt Monolith has been very valuable too, and an unblockable Blightsteel Colossus is just mean!

I have not drawn Whispersilk Cloak yet.

Silent Arbiter has been helpful in containing combat numbers.

I have not missed the three Wastes.

Bane of Bala Ged's attack trigger has not been missed.

There has not been a moment in any game where I thought to myself "I could really use Soul of New Phyrexia" when compared to the recently added cards.

Thank you again for your suggestions and taking time to peruse this deck list! It has been helpful!

AnthonyB0712 I think Sarkhan, Fireblood is decent. He gets at least 1 discard, so that’s good. He does compete for the 3 drop space your commander is also in. If you run lots of dragons, then he’s really good. I used to run Sarkhan's Triumph in this deck wit how many dragons I used to have.

I dislike Kozilek, the Great Distortion. He’s narrow, and Feldon lacks a way to keep his hand full as well. Better cards for “countering” would be Dualcaster Mage and Emissary of Grudges.

I'm also considering Kozilek, the Great Distortion as a counterspell in the GY and a discard outlet.

I know it takes some setup but it seems like a decent repeatable option.

@casual_competitive

Mycosynth Golem is dope. And the more artifact suggestions i see, the more i want to try a version of Kozilek, the Great Distortion with all artifact synergies. Maybe not even have a Eldrazi tribe angle as much.

Mycosynth Golem as it is for the current version of the deck, i feel like it makes more sense with at least 15 artifacts more in the deck? Otherwise i see it needing about 7 mana somewhere midgame and then not getting enough bang for its buck?

DeinoStinkus on Price of the Eldrazi Titans

1 month ago

I was just perusing decks today and found that Emrakul, the Promised End's price was kind of low. I said, okay, what else? All of the titans prices have dropped, as far as I can tell, all of them are under $40.

Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre

Kozilek, Butcher of Truth

Emrakul, the Aeons Torn

Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

Kozilek, the Great Distortion

Emrakul, the Promised End

Gyre has dropped from almost $50 to $32 in only a week.

Butcher has dropped a bit, from like $42 (?) to $36.

Aeons Torn has remained about the same, likely because without the audience if EDH it doesn't see the audience that the other titans enjoy.

Hunger has also dropped quite a bit, from like $45 to $39.

Distortion climbed up to $15 recently, and is now back at the price I originally bought it at ($8 something in late 2018)

Promised End has stayed about the same. It's price has lowered a little bit, but overall not too much, and certainly not as much as Gyre.

I might actually buy Gyre if this continues. Are there recent events in certain formats that might contribute to the drop? They haven't been reprinted in the past year as far as I know (the last old Eldrazi reprint was in Ultimate Masters), and I can't really see any correlation between this and the recent bannings. Any insight on the matter would be helpful.
