Kozilek's Return Discussion
4 weeks ago
Hey, thanks for your comment! I actually looked at your deck yesterday because one of my friends used to run a Temurge deck in standard and loved it. Unfortunately, that's the extent of my knowledge about both Temurge and the pioneer format, so I don't have a ton of suggestions.
Only thing I can think of - do you often get Delirium for Traverse the Ulvenwald ? It looks hard to do without having Solemn Simulacrum in the GY. If it's not consistently a tutor for your one-of creatures, I might cut that and your one-ofs in favor of more consistency, maybe going up to 4x each Kozilek's Return , Sylvan Caryatid , Champion of Wits , etc.
Love the idea, hope it continues to be a fun deck for you!

It looks like your breakpoint for Eldritch Evolution is at 3 mana, but the single copy of Gisela is the only creature you can tutor for at that point that costs more than the sacrificed creature. If you want Evolution to be the Birthing Pod for this deck, I'd suggest adding more threats that cost 4-5 mana. Fives are particularly valuable since they can themselves be sacced to find Bruna or Deceiver of Form . Sticking with the Eldrazi type, Emrakul's Hatcher , Kozilek's Channeler , and the popular Reality Smasher seem like they'd be the most effective. The world's your oyster if you don't mind running other creature types. Stormbreath Dragon , Sigarda, Host of Herons , Baneslayer Angel , and Thragtusk are some picks recommended by the internet as the best modern creatures on 5. If you prefer having only the biggest baddest threats in the 7-9 range, I'd cut Evolution entirely for more ramp in Cryptolith Rite / Citanul Hierophants , From Beyond / Awakening Zone , or really whatever other options you prefer. Another card I'd consider cutting is Kozilek's Return since it will wipe out all of your tokens (even after upgrading with Emrakul's Evangel ) unless you're lucky enough to also have Eldrazi Monument out. Maybe Mizzium Mortars could be your sweeper if that's what you're looking for. A final cut I'd make is the odd fifth copy of Game Trail . Unless that's a typo, you don't typically want to run more than 4 copies of nonbasics, even in casual. Plus, your deck looks like it could use more white and colorless mana sources anyway. An interesting option that jumped to my mind was Westvale Abbey Flip since you already have a human token theme. Some other tribal picks that might fit are Champion of the Parish , Thalia's Lieutenant , and Mayor of Avabruck Flip.
Let me know if you have any questions and good luck! (BTW, I'm not a great sideboard builder, but I do know eldrazi make use of Warping Wail and Oblivion Sower in addition to the more traditional hate artifacts.)

Hi! First of all, I really like your list! It's a pretty cool list, pretty close to what I want to build! I just have a couple questions/suggestions.
Have you tried Seasoned Pyromancer ? That card seems pretty good against control, I almost want to call it Red Lingering Souls, in that it's something that gives you threats from the graveyard haha
On the other hand, I don't quite dig the Kozilek's Return in the sideboard. I would play either Pyroclasm or Sweltering Suns . I do love the Guttural Response though! I totally forgot that card existed! hahaha

Cut Wraith, bring 4 Monastery Swiftspear instead, as it helps enabling Scourge of the Skyclaves so much. Also, 1-2 Temur Battle Rage are a must as this card can end games so quickly, especially with Scourge. Make Lurrus your companion, trust me, you don't want to randomly draw him in this kinda deck. Your sideboard can still play Ashiok & Engineer. I'm not sold on Fulminator Mage anyways, Cleansing Wildfire or Blood Moon seem better to me, Wildfire is key in Belcher or Oops MU, Blood Moon out of the board can just win you games on the spot (Field of the Dead, Valakut, Tron). Surgical Extraction is another card I wouldn't play, at least not mainboard. There are many matchups where it's just dead and you already have some graveyard hate in the sideboard. Bring your Mishra's Bauble count up to 4 and maybe add 2 Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger in place of the mainboard Lurrus. Last but not least you might wanna try 2 Kozilek's Return in the sideboard, as it helps beating wider strategies (Field of the Dead, Seasoned Pyromancer, Young Pyromancer) or creatures like Auriok Champion that your deck might struggle with otherwise.

Looks fun! Was curious about a couple things though:
- Why the split instead of 3 Kiln Fiend main and 2 Bonecrusher Giant in the side? Seems like the latter would be more consistent
- No Skullcrack in the sideboard seems incorrect. I've found a lot of success with it, as it answers Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath in the long game and Batterskull, and makes Kor Firewalker a bit less daunting. If you want to try these out, I'd cut Kozilek's Return, 2 Tormod's Crypt (not a lot of graveyard shenanigans right now and Skullcrack is nice against dredge), and 1 Dragon's Claw (since Skullcrack is also an answer to opposing Dragon's Claws and Kor Firewalkers). Might just be me though, would be interested to hear why you don't like it if it was something you considered. Alternatively, Dismember is a nice answer to Firewalker that's generally a lot more useful than Kozilek's Return
Deck looks like a really fun budget list! Would love to hear what levels of success you're seeing with it. Hope all is well!
