Morophon, the Boundless Discussion
6 days ago
I originally was using Morophon, the Boundless , but didn't get much use out of it, by the time I had enough mana to cast it everyone was ready to do something about it (counters/removal) so it didn't pay off much. I love the instant constant value I get from The Ur-Dragon , especially if I can spread the dragon type around with Arcane Adaptation or Maskwood Nexus .
I will eventually build a dragon deck, and given the mana cost of dragons I am likely to fill in the lower part of the curve with changelings. However, the "theme" of this deck is to be spread across as many tribes as possible. Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero pulling any changeling out of my library onto the field for just its mana cost is a great example, no one is running Rebel tribal.

Hallo Draknoz, thank you for stopping by and sharing your ideas!
I thought about Defense of the Heart and Morophon, the Boundless for a long time and the reasons why they aren't both in the deck already transcend their playability. I have the first one in another deck and as a personal rule i try not to repeat the same cards in different decks to preserve their... i don't know how to call it, "sense of uniqueness". Regarding the second one, Morophon, i agree about the great synergy. It could be the only effective way to cast my commander since i removed Fist of Suns but... the problem is that i absolutely HATE its art.
I am aware that this is silly, but i just can't stand that moose pudding look and the obnoxious face. I don't want those dropping cheeks anywhere near my dragons!
Maybe in the future, if wotc ever reprint it with a new art...
Selvala's Stampede is a cool suggestion, i didn't knew the card! My concern about its possible use regards my deck's greatest weakness: on many occasions, my hand empties faster than it fills. Card draw it's a bit of a problem still and that's the reason why Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius is the deck and Shadrix Silverquill is in the Maybeboard. With an excessively light hand, Stampede risks to be a dead draw...

Defense of the Heart I find it to be quite easy to proc in edh and a game-winner if left unchecked.
Selvala's Stampede just goes crazy in a big creature deck, instead of paying 5 mana for one dragon pay 6 mana for 4!
Morophon, the Boundless is so synergistic with your commander. I see him in the maybe board and I definitely recommend putting him in. He lets you drop Ur dragon for 4 mana and makes all your other dragons cost 2-3 generic. Maybe cut niv mizzet, he's kind of his own commander.

I'm considering building two different Tribal-Eldrazi Commander decks: one that is Colorless, and one that is not. However the question that has to be answered before I can effectively brew these decks is "which Commander(s) should I use?"
In the case of the -Eldrazi deck, the choice is particularly narrow. Here the old & new printings of Ulamog and Kozilek come to mind. I happen to have a dated/Prerelease foil 'Nulamog', but I think that the draw & countering ability of 'Nuzilek' may provide superior utility in the Command Zone..
On the other hand, the "Rainbow" Eldrazi has a lot more wiggle-room in choice of Commander since... well, there is no colored Legendary Eldrazi. On one hand, the easy choice seems to be Morophon, the Boundless for Rainbow-Tribal. But on the other hand, I also own a copy of all of the 4-color & 2-color partner Commanders from C16. (Only Breya seems out of the question due to the lack of )
Although there will be a far amount of overlap between the two, the defining characteristics will be:
Most, if not all, of the spells from (OGW) with "" in their mana cost, as well as all of the Legendary Titans, will only be found in the Colorless deck..
The colored Eldrazi deck will be very -heavy (for the superior Ramp), and effectively double as a "Devoid-Tribal"..

Hi! Thank you very much for the comment and the suggestions!
I have to confess, I didnt know Unnatural Selection until now. It is definetly a great card in this deck! I should consider to add it. However I would not replace Wings of Velis Vel in spite of the fact that it looks to be quite weak. The changelling instants are essential during the gameplay. Let me explain why:
It is every creature type so Sliver Overlord is able to find it directly. He can tutor a "sliver card", not a "sliver permanent", what means a great flexibility for all of the changelling instants.
It is every creature type so with Morophon, the Boundless on board you can actually cast it just for
It is every creature type so you can easily reanimate these instants via Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero . She is able to put a "Rebel card" not a "Rebel permanent" on the bottom of your library. That is how you can play it repeatedly.
The Wings of Velis Vel is quite versatile as well. Many times I have used the card as sort of "removal" of an opponent's dirty flyer when I have created my own surprising 4/4 flying blocker.
Last but not least: I dont want to fully optimize the deck. I would like to keep a bit of its sense of "lore". Therefore I want to play the tribal lands as Ancient Amphitheater , Gilt-Leaf Palace or Murmuring Bosk . For this reason I need a number of changelling cards to keep them functional (to reveal a Giant, Elf, Treefolk etc and to play them untapped)
Sure it is possible to replace Tendo Ice Bridge by Mana Confluence . In this case I just worry a bit to play too many pain lands, because the deck is not extremly fast and it doesnt have any easy way how to gain life.
You are right about the bordwipe as well. I used to play the Whelming Wave as a cheap and lore variant of Cyclonic Rift . Later, I beleave, I have replaced it with a counterspell, because I havent used it much. Anyway.. it is still in my mind.
Thank you once more for the comment and for discovering Unnatural Selection for me ;)

I know the feeling, and at the end of the day your list will likely change once you get more games under your belt depending on your local meta etc. I've found that my dragons need to have a major impact the turn they hit play (from ETB or attack triggers if you run enough haste enablers) as they tend to die fairly quickly, so that's something I'd keep in mind when choosing which ones to keep and cut. I'd also add Crucible of Fire to the above list of potential cuts, it's cool but I find it to be slightly overkill, so the way my list is designed I'd rather run a mass-reanimation spell instead. I also gotta highlight Hellkite Courser , it's just perfect for the Ur Dragon!!

Hmmm, I do think that the amount of colorless creatures (that are eldrazi compared) compared to "colored" eldrazi is not enough. Notice that Morophon, the Boundless , reduces the cost by WUBRG and any colorless eldrazi will not cost less. But the deck functions, and works AMAZING WITH Jodah, Archmage Eternal , and Fist of Suns . I would recommend some more tutors to get out combo pieces along with some nice card draw. The deck is rounded out but... it could do with some tweeks. Conduit of Ruin may be a colorless eldrazi but can make things cost less that are colored, Ugin, the Ineffable , Forerunner of Slaughter , and Flayer Drone , both do wonders... Forsaken Monument even buffs your "colored" eldrazi because of the devoid mechanic. Ulamog's Nullifier and Brood Butcher both can do wonders, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove and Dust Stalker , are great... Eladamri's Call , Vampiric Tutor , and Enlightened Tutor all work great, Bring to Light is also great as well.

Nice list, I too have used Mortlocke's list as a skeleton
Strongly recommend using Morophon, the Boundless in your 99
