Rapacious One

Creature — Eldrazi Drone

Trample

Whenever Rapacious One deals combat damage to a player, put that many 0/1 colorless Eldrazi Spawn creature tokens onto the battlefield. They have "Sacrifice this creature: Add {{1}} to your mana pool."

Brutal_B on Who to lead my Eldrazi …

I use Kruphix, God of Horizons to head up my eldrazi invasion. His ability to store colorless mana is the "ramp" you want plus he gives you access to blue for lots of scry, draw, clone, counter, etc. Although I gotta admit that Kruphix is fairly popular when it comes to eldrazi tribal EDH and maybe to played for your liking...

And then there's Svella, Ice Shaper who essentially makes Manalith s for you and will tutor up the big eldrazi. He offers up green for your ramp and red for dudes like Rapacious One and Vile Aggregate .

Notorious Throng , Tilonalli's Summoner and Tempt with Vengeance can make a ton of tokens. Maybe Spell Swindle

Rite of the Raging Storm and I second the motion for Flameshadow Conjuring

As for creatures Metalwork Colossus , Rapacious One and Keiga, the Tide Star (all but one token copy of keiga die but then you steal a bunch of creatures)

For the Stompy version I would start by cutting Ruination Guide, Pitiless Plunderer, Sifter of Skulls, Blight Herder, Brood Butcher, Emrakrul’s Hatcher, Catacomb Sifter, Drowner of Hope, Awakening Zone, Etchings of the Chosen, Eyeless Watcher.

If you put in Rings of Brighthearth it combos with Basalt Monolith to make infinite mna. Both Monolith and Rings are 3 CmC and artifacts so they are tutorable with the same tutors you have in here for Fist of Suns. With infinite colourless mana Dimensional Infiltrator will be able to exile your opponents libraries, Essence Depleter can drain out the table, and Prophet of Distortion will let you draw your library. Rings doesn't have a lot of synergy with other cards in your list BUT if Golos was your commander it has a seriously powerful ability that would be awesome to copy.

Eternal Scourge + Food Chain is another combo you can consider which will make infinite COLOURED mana for creature spells and have infinite EtB and LtB triggers so this will end a game with Flayer Drone or Vela the Night-Clad in play. If you wanted to abuse the mana you would need Cloudstone Curio or a non-eldrazi bouncing creature as all the eldrazi bouncers are processors and it is unlikely your opponents will have an infinite pile of exiled cards.

I suggest adding in Pathrazer of Ulamog , Barrage Tyrant , World Breaker , Dread Defiler , Endless One , Not of This World , Rapacious One , Reality Smasher , Thought-Knot Seer , Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , Ulamog's Crusher , & Vile Redeemer as suitable eldrazi stompy options. Barrage Tyrant and Dread Defiler get a special mention because Fling is an amazing effect that can give you the reach you need to close out a game or off a player hiding behind a pillowfort.

Here is a list of support cards off the top of my head: Sarkhan's Unsealing , Temur Ascendancy , Commander's Plate , Mana Maze , Cultivate , Kodama's Reach , Rampant Growth , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon , Everflowing Chalice , Thran Dynamo , Rishkar's Expertise , Return of the Wildspeaker , Garruk's Uprising , Hunting Grounds , Sneak Attack , Animar, Soul of Elements , Mana Geyser , Mirari's Wake , Ugin, the Ineffable , Show and Tell , Terror of the Peaks , Warstorm Surge , Alena, Kessig Trapper , Ilysian Caryatid , Momentous Fall , Greater Good , Sacellum Godspeaker , Selvala, Heart of the Wilds , The Great Henge , Eldritch Evolution , Energy Tap .

Awesome suggestions, I looked at everything you suggested and started to make some modifications and going to play test things quickly here. Elvish Piper looks like a possible game changer for sneaking out some fatties.

Your second commend was quite accurate, on par with your first, there were some cards that I was eyeing again as I play tested this morning that just didn't feel like they fit what I was going for with this. Tortured Existence and The Cauldron of Eternity were on my radar to be replaced. Rapacious One not sure how I never saw that one?!

really appreciate you taking the time to offer up some of your views on things, I'm thinking Crucible of Worlds could also help if I'm playing Fetch lands that I could reuse.

This is so cool! Have you considered Rapacious One instead of Essence Feed? Maybe Ashnod's Altar? I feel like the altar would be able to net you twice the mana from your eldrazi spawn and can also provide on-demand death to your creatures, and a hit from Rapacious One can easily advance your board state towards something powerful and repeatable.

As backups, I would consider Quicksilver Amulet or Elvish Piper in case you can't get enough mana eldrazi.

Your land base looks good, however Korvold especially benefits from lands that can sacrifice themselves. Fetch lands like Wooded Foothills, Verdant Catacombs, Bloodstained Mire, Windswept Heath, Misty Rainforest,Prismatic Vista, Scalding Tarn and Polluted Delta could really speed up your mana base and let you draw cards at the same time! I get that they may be out of budget- proxies are always an option if your playgroup is cool with them. Additional lands like Spawning Bed, Lotus Field, Jund Panorama, Blighted Woodland and Fabled Passage work well too.

Harrow instead of Wild Wanderer would fit your sacrifice theme. Pitiless Plunderer would give you double value while Broodwarden only buffs some of your creatures. You're not really winning with spawn, and a lot of your best eldrazi produce scions anyway.

I like your removal package, but I feel like there are some unneeded spells that can also be cut for ramp/removal. Things like Fog, Spawning Breath, Prismatic Omen, and Wave of Vitriol don't really advance your game plan (at least not as much as you'd like them to), and I think things such as Breaker of Armies, Nature's Lore, and Corpsehatch, and Commander's Sphere would work some wonders.

This is a super cool concept and I'm eager to see it in the future. I hope this helps!

Sundial of the Infinite could be used to keep the pig's friends in play. Activate it when the delayed return to hand trigger goes on the stack, fizzling the trigger and keeping the creature on the field.

You might like these too: Conjurer's Closet (works similar to sundial), Voyager Staff, Seize the Day, Fiendish Duo, It That Betrays, Minion Reflector, War Elemental, Treasonous Ogre, Helm of the Host, Knollspine Dragon, Ogre Battledriver, Dockside Extortionist, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Rapacious One, Chancellor of the Forge
