Platinum Emperion Discussion
3 weeks ago
multimedia Thanks so much for the suggestions. I really appreciate them.
I don't even argue that card draw and flexibility early wouldn't be a nice asset to have and some of the games i really could use some extra cards to get faster to Kozilek. The problem is just: the only times i got stuck on my way to 10 mana is when my board gets wiped midgame or someone removes a key piece and sets me back. There's been times where that took me out of the game completely.
But if my board does end up getting wiped, most of the times it would remove these tools as well. Not even mentioning how these cards need the synergy with each other. They all run danger of doing a lot of nothing by themselves. My personal experience was (and that might very well be local meta related) that my number one goal is to get to 10 mana, cast Kozilek and try to slowly get a stable grip on the game.
Desolation Twin - i agree actually. I wish it was a little better. It usually ends up being a slow clunky play. I would cut it.
Pathrazer of Ulamog is quite nice here, because i got so much haste sources and Annihilator effects are my bread and butter.
Platinum Emperion is one of the nicest cards i've recently added to the deck. It single handedly saved my ass in so many games. (But again: might very well be my local meta)
Bane of Bala Ged a cheap annihilator-ish effect for mid game. I kinda love that one.
Wastes - I'm down to cut one.
Overall i really like the idea of making the deck more flexible and quick. Especially with the Deal Broker, Unwinding Clock and Shimmer Myr combination, but to be honest i would have to go back to an older version of the deck like Ashlen's Kozilek I Game Knights #24 (it was actually my jumping of point), which had much more artifact synergies like the Unwinding Clock in it.
The way it's set up right now i would describe as one of the dumbest, yet okay decks in EDH. Ramp and bam! So in a way your suggestions are basically too smart. ;)

WarSpaniel If by "combo" you specifically mean something that loops over and over to create a threat that requires an immediate answer or else "i win", then no. As easy as it would be to include Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Zealous Conscripts i purposely left them out so this deck could function, and win, without the combo. I end games through attrition. It's quite hard to answer a Ruric Thar, the Unbowed equipped with Grafted Exoskeleton and a damage doubler, although I wouldn't call that a combo in the way i think you mean :) Also, Blightsteel Colossus :)
Sorry for the overblown answer.
Other strong Synergies include:
Any of my Damage doublers with Ruric thar
Possibility Storm and Ruric Thar is nasty and gives me the edge since I'm so creature heavy.
Effects like these along with tax on playing instant speed accomplish what tis deck is trying to do. Kill Spell slingers.

@Savaaage, I do like the draw 4. Its really nice, and the big body with annihilator 4 is very strong. However at 10 cmc it's even harder to cast than Void Winnower (@9 cmc) and I don't think it's a better card than Void Winnower either. At 10 cmc the only card I could see taking out for it is Terastodon and that's also a really good card.
The last question you asked was if I use to run more eldrazi in the deck? I use to run 5 at the beginning. In this decks very early deck building stages I had all the low $ price tag eldrazies, and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger in the deck. I cut the eldrazies from the deck because they would just be dead in my hand for way to long. Having so many high cost cards was bad for the deck. So I cut all the ones that I thought had the lowest impact or sat in my hand way too long because of it's high cmc. Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger was the last one to get cut. And it was mostly in for its removal for why it was in the deck for so long. and it was pretty cool winning by exile of Library. But 10 cmc again was too much. I kept Void Winnower and Artisan of Kozilek because they did some really good things that mattered most to me. First Void Winnower , it creates good evasion for multani and makes it hard for your opponents to play their cards. and Artisan of Kozilek is important because it can cheat on mana cost on some very strong cards in the deck such as, Bane of Progress , Greenwarden of Murasa , Platinum Emperion , Terastodon , and Void Winnower just to name a few.
So having Eldrazi Temple in the deck prior to cutting all the eldrazi felt very important to the deck. It's much less important now, but there is only one very small draw back from playing this card and that's the interaction with Caged Sun (its not a forest). The land comes into play untapped and can tap for right away at no cost. And when I have an eldrazi it's even better. So it's no problem to throw in the deck for the chance that I can cast an eldrazi for less even if there's only 2 in the deck.

@Quicksilver - My only fear is that, it can be stolen and used against me with cards like Expropriate .. I may have to plan better when casting my commander, instead of including Platinum Emperion .. but we'll see.. Thanks for the suggestion, though..

Platinum Emperion would save you from your commander should he become a problem.
