Phyrexia's Core could be a fun land for this deck.

Thanks for the suggestions austintayshus!

unfortunately for me, Meekstone and All Is Dust are too out of the budget for me, all of the expensive cards in the deck are cards I already own.

I also don't think I run enough recursion to warrant playing cards that are sac outlets over others but Phyrexia's Core is a good idea as it takes nothing to replace a wastes with it.

Thanks!

I also made a Traxos deck and it's one of my favorite decks to play! You can find it on my page if you want some ideas.

Some cards that I would recommend are

Hope this helps!

Altar of Dementia is looking pretty good for us. It has nice synergy with Colossus. Perhaps as a one of or maybe even replacing Grinding Station . More testing required.

I've been considering swapping out Phyrexia's Core for Buried Ruin or Academy Ruins . I feel like we have plenty of other sack outlets and getting back a key combo piece from the graveyard is more important.

I dropped Mind Stone as I found its value questionable. Mox Opal is better as ramp and enables the possibility of a pre-turn 3 combo but I don't have $500 for them so I filled the slot with the Myr Retriever . After quite a bit of play testing Myr Retriever is a must in this deck (3-4). I dropped one Scrap Trawler . You want to keep one around for the classic combos in this deck.

The London Mull Rule will help us a lot. It might even be better to turn this into a blue deck to protect our combo instead of trying to find the combo with Ancient Stirrings .

More on turning blue Reshape finds our pieces and has nice synergy as a sac outlet and triggers Ichor Wellspring . Whir of Invention a similar story.

There are some interesting possibilities in white too but I won't bring them up here. See the .

OUT: Grove of the Burnwillows IN: Fiery Islet if we go blue

OUT: Mind Stone IN: Myr Retriever

OUT: Phyrexia's Core IN: Buried Ruin or Academy Ruins

Dischord on Colorless Eldrazi Fun!

For future reference, Commander's Sphere doesn't tap for any mana in a colorless Commander deck. Commander's Sphere specifies that it taps for a color in the commander's color identity, and Kozilek, the Great Distortion clearly doesn't have any colors, so Commander's Sphere can't tap for any mana. Try running Magnifying Glass instead! It provides card draw and ramp!

You should also consider running other lands over the tron lands and the Locus lands. Yeah, sure, they're really sweet if they're online, but you'll rarely get all of the pieces on the board if you draw them naturally. Maybe try Inventors' Fair , High Market , Phyrexia's Core , Reliquary Tower , and Haven of the Spirit Dragon .

Are the tron lands worth running in Kozilek? I personally don't run them in my build because it's really difficult to get them all out on the battlefield at the same time. For budget replacements, I'd suggest running Crystal Vein , Thespian's Stage , and Zhalfirin Void over the tron lands.

Also, is Winter Orb good? I feel like it would screw you over more than your opponents since you need to ramp a lot to overrun the table. If you want synergy with Karn, the Great Creator like you said Winter Orb was there for, I would run a copy of Ugin's Nexus instead. Not only does it help you by stopping people from using extra turn spells, it has really cool and obscure additional utility! For one, you can use Karn's [-2] loyalty ability to recast Ugin's Nexus for a few more extra turns (with a sacrifice outlet, like Phyrexia's Core for example), and for Kozilek, a few more extra turns can let you swing in for easy Commander damage lethal. Another cool synergy with Ugin's Nexus is with Emrakul, the Promised End . Since Emrakul lets your opponent take an "extra turn", with Ugin's Nexus out on the battlefield, they can't take that extra turn, and you have essentially used Mindslaver on them!
