I'd go with Syr Carah, the Bold then. You can do a lot of damage in small doses; for some extra spyce add in a Harmless Offering and donate someone a Platinum Angel so you can make em go into the negatives :)

Azdranax Platinum Angel is why the token etb was able to resolve

Omniscience_is_life haha I Love It!. but i dont take credit for this play i was in the game but did not respond to any of the events that unfolded it was just to funny to watch

i do have 3 plays i love to tell
last year on my turn 0 i casted Pact of Negation on my buddies turn 1 Sol Ring

thanks giving 2019 in a 10 player game.
I turned 1 Mountain into Sol Ring
turn 2 Mountain & Repercussion
turn 3 Forest, Natural Affinity & then Blasphemous Act
everyone thought it was going to be a long game, one of the people kept saying i don't understand how did i die lmao!!

and i dont remeber if it was 2018 or 2019
i built my Kenrith, the Returned King infinite of infinite deck
in one game my combo went off on turn 4
it gets complicated but its was a 36 card combo that allowed me to move my libary straight to hand or battle field, move my hand to battlefield or grave yard, grave yard to hand or libary, and exile to grave yard
i then looped a spell causing all the players to put all there lands onto the battle field, then milled there decks put all there creatures from graveyard onto play under there control, shuffled there graveyards back into the libary, made them draw all but the last 5 cards of there decks, i then casted Happily Ever After & Teferi's Protection and passed the turn

So it was me and one dude left in a 4 person pod and I was playing my artifact deck and dude was playing some mono black something-or-other. I had Platinum Angel out and he drops Phage the Untouchable and swings at me with her a couple times over the course of 2-3 turns just for the sake of dealing damage. I top deck Saheeli's Artistry, copy Platinum Angel and Phage. On my next turn I pay into my Rogue's Passage targeting my Phage and swing for the win!

Have you considered Platinum Angel as an alternative way to win/not lose against things like ad nausuem decks.

enpc on Muldrotha Oracle Ruling vs. Rule …

1 month ago

As a general rule with Magic the Gathering, the trick with interpreting rules is that a card never does more than exactly what it says, in the order that it says. So since there is nothing on Muldrotha, the Gravetide that states that you can play additional lands, then there should be no reason to think that you can (and I know it's not you holding this opinion).

In addtion to that (and I can't remember where I saw this but it may have been one of the Judge's blogs or something) but in almost every circumstance, "can't" will overule "can". Have a Felidar Sovereign and 50 life but your opponent has a Platinum Angel in play? Too bad, because you can't win the game.

Over my time playing MtG I have seen quite a few interesting interpreations of hte rules where people have made some truely bizarre connections because they assumed a card did more than it did. And a decent number of these could simply be resolved by simply reading the card.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Thopter Assembly

Any Vehicle could be turned into a creature when you want while being safe from "destroy all creatures" when you don't want

Metalwork Colossus, Ancient Stone Idol if you are winning with damage. Memnarch, Nullstone Gargoyle, maybe even Platinum Angel

RNR_Gaming on [EDH] Eldrazi Kozilek Deck

Maybe cut 2 lands and creatures that don't have an immediate or limited impact. Platinum Emperion and Platinum Angel are win more... or well not lose more cards.

abby315 on [EDH] Eldrazi Kozilek Deck

I would also cut: Erratic Portal, Lux Cannon, God-Pharaoh's Gift, Planar Bridge, and Titan's Presence as a start. Those are all pretty overcosted for what they're able to do in your deck.

Second, are you focusing on a Voltron-style Commander damage win with Kozilek? I can tell you it doesn't happen very often since he's actually quite vulnerable to removal. I also started with a build that had a lot of unblockable effects, but it turns out that Kozilek isn't the best attacker compared to your other Eldrazi. I'd focus more on using Kozilek for card advantage and digging for your other Eldrazi to win the game.

To that end, I'd take out Trailblazer's Boots and Fireshrieker.

Finally, a few upgrades to consider: Manifold Key is strictly better than Voltaic Key. Platinum Angel and Platinum Emperion are both super helpful and more impactful than Reality Smasher and Sandstone Oracle. Doubling Cube is pretty fun ramp and probably better than Gilded Lotus. Commander's Plate is going to be much better than Whispersilk Cloak, though it's decently expensive rn.

Here's my list that I've been running for a few years, if you want more ideas: Kozi Kozi Commander (Colorless Eldrazi EDH)

Have fun, it's a super fun deck to play with!
