Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre Discussion
1 week ago
My Kynaios and Tiro deck involves mass ramp and card draw. I also add lots of pillowfort to protect myself from unprovoked attacks.
As a surprise win strategy, I use this combo that seems relatively harmless at first:
- Temple Bell or Otherworld Atlas (tap each player draws a card)
- Mind Over Matter (discard a card, then untap target permanent)
- Kozilek, Butcher of Truth , Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , or Blightsteel Colossus (gets shuffled into your library when sent to the graveyard from anywhere)
Infinitely make everyone draw until they lose the game, except you because you keep sending cards back to your library.

Gleeock, here is my creature list. That's all there is. Each either shuffle back into the library from the graveyard and synergize with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Through the Breach , or they are indestructible and synerz with Shifting Shadow
- Perfect for breaking eggs every turn
- Wincon with Blightsteel Colossus
- Amazing with Worldspine Wurm
- Also great with It That Betrays
Not as good as expected, but more eggs and dragons are not bad, especially when you can sac them due to Maskwood Nexus .
- Obviously good with any creature
- Synergizes as a creature with Shifting Shadow , otherwise hard to remove
- Indestructible flying Monster
- All creature now synergize with Shifting Shadow
- Unfortunately, his casting ability is basically useless in this deck
- Despite being crazy by itself, Annihilator 4 is great with It That Betrays
- Shuffles graveyard back in, so I'll get back the non-shuffle creatures, most of all Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger
I love this card.
It has happened that "It" and its over rings Kozilek and Ulamog have come into play at the same time with Selvala's Stampede . That's 33 power (easily chump blocked though) and 10 permanents sacrificed that I then returned to the battlefield under my control. Primal Rage helps.

I will always have my Lavinia of the Tenth flicker deck. No one ever uses Detain anymore, plus it hits a shit ton of stuff.

OK. So this might get a little weird. Gitrog is maybe one of the funniest competitive combo decks in Commander. A very unique kind of combo that lets you draw your entire deck (multiple times) and do basically anything you want to win. It's very odd, and can be done for pretty cheap as far as I've seen. The things that are really necessary are The Gitrog Monster and Dakmor Salvage .
The way it works is that you discard Dakmor Salvage from your hand to trigger Gitrog's last line of text to draw a card. Then you use the Dredge ability on Dakmor Salvage to get it back into your hand by milling two cards from your library into your graveyard. Then you discard Dakmor Salvage from your hand again, and again... And again...
When you mill a land into your graveyard with dredge, you'll draw an additional card. So it's net positive in that you'll end up with more cards in hand then you started with. But wait, you ask, how do I not mill myself out of the game? I'm glad you asked. You shuffle your graveyard back into your library! The most efficient way to do this is with Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , but I've also seen it done on a budget with Elixir of Immortality .
Now how do I turn this into a win, you wonder? You make mana during the loops described above and do whatever the f**k you want! Most rituals you have available to you, like Dark Ritual Cabal Ritual and Songs of the Damned , create black mana. But there are ways to create green mana. One simple one is Early Harvest . Those will give you infinite mana during the loop, which already puts all of your cards into your hand. Then you can win with simple stuff like Exsanguinate or Torment of Hailfire . Just make sure to pay attention to the grumblings of the other players at the table. If you can't hear them it probably means everyone picked up their cards and left. Congratulations! You've now won the game!
(I'll give your list a real look later, but I felt that I had to share all of the above information first.)

you just want to torture people into quitting ?
1st. Take 0rcs suggestion to load up your deck with mana loops and tutors
2nd. use the endless mana to cast your commander and draw your deck
3rd. Cast Isochron Scepter Imprinting Silence and then cast Unwinding Clock and any sacrifice creature outlet
4th. end step clean up keep Teferi's Protection , Riftsweeper , Cyclonic Rift , and 4 counter spells, make the last card you discard Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre to reset the deck
use Isochron Scepter / Silence & Unwinding Clock to lock them out of the game
if they try to respond to silence being put on the stack counter there response
if you cant counter there response cast Teferi's Protection
then at your next turn Cyclonic Rift to undo all there accomplishments
then cast Riftsweeper to reset Teferi's Protection
rinse repeat only difference now is if you need to reset Teferi's Protection just sac Riftsweeper then use kenny to put him back before you draw your deck
tada now your an asshole :)

So, I want to add an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger , as I have the possibility of bouncing and recasting amount of times with Cloudstone Curio and Animar, Soul of Elements , essentially exiling my opponents boards entirely. I have this effect with destroy with Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre and also damage by bouncing Ancestral Statue and having Impact Tremors or Purph on the board. If I have Animar on the board, I guess I have the opportunity to put an arbitrarily large number of +1/+1 counters on them as well, and have free bouncy Eldrazi. YAY! FUN FOR EVERYONE!
Advice on what to cut would be super helpful

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 .
