Ulamog's Crusher Discussion

Looking good! I tried a Pauper EDH deck built around Sigil Captain in the past, and it's fun seeing what undercosted bruisers you can get by looking at all of the 1/1s with funky abilities. I feel like you got most of the heavy hitters, but sometimes some creatures that aren't 1/1s can help your cause!
I think the most impressive of these is Safehold Elite - since Persist brings her back with a -1/-1 counter and +1/+1 counters and -1/-1 counters cancel each other out... no matter how many times she dies, Sigil Captain will let her come back as a 3/3! An unkillable 3/3 should be even more impressive than the various 1/1s who give you a replacement on their death. Another handy creature to keep around is Ainok Bond-Kin - though his 2 power might keep him from picking up the Captain's boost, giving First Strike to all of your other creatures makes them even more of a pain to deal with in combat. They become even more fearsome when gang-blocking, letting three innocuous creatures take down a rampaging Ulamog's Crusher - your foe's creatures won't stand a chance! Sporeback Troll likewise gets in on the +1/+1 counter love, letting you regenerate any of your other creatures for a measly two mana.
As far as other handy 1/1s go, I think it might be worth considering Deftblade Elite , Faerie Guidemother , Hungry Spriggan , Selesnya Evangel , Shinewend and Soltari Trooper . Having some extra removal never hurts, and some of these creatures can hit a lot harder than their size suggests!

In the long run, lower CMC ramp gets you farther than ones of higher that get more lands. Vastwood Surge , Explosive Vegetation , Kodama's Reach , and Thran Dynamo can be swapped out in favor of Farseek (if you add the Shock lands mentioned below especially), Arcane Signet (a commander staple), Thought Vessel , and Mind Stone .
Your land package is decent, but worth putting more attention into. Depending on your budget (something that would be worth putting somewhere so people know in advance), the Shock / Fetch (+ Prismatic Vista ) lands are the best in the house for color fixing. Barring those expensive cards, your best bets would have to be cutting the Panoramas + Warped Landscape (I know, it's hard), and adding in Evolving Wilds , Terramorphic Expanse , Krosan Verge , Fabled Passage and a Wastes .
Past that, Fires of Yavimaya is almost strictly worse than Rhythm of the Wild , so I'd suggest you switch 'em. Merciless Eviction is far inferior to Austere Command in my opinion, given you can save all your Eldrazi with it.
Now, on the card draw front... you are severely lacking. But given that you have UG in this deck, you have plenty of options, so never fear. I do see a Return of the Wildspeaker in the maybeboard--run it! I've had great experiences with that one. You could conceivably cut Ulamog's Crusher for it. In addition, you can replicate your Garruk's Uprising / Guardian Project situation with an Elemental Bond : perhaps instead of an Essence Depleter .
And that's all I have to say. Hope this helped, please let me know if it did ;)

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 .

Luckily, a lot of the suspend cards are super cheap.
Other than those, you may consider:
Thryx, the Sudden Storm: Helps to protect your biggies when they come out of suspend.
Aminatou's Augury: So much value.
Arcanis the Omnipotent: Good card draw and suspended creatures have haste. This one is over a dollar though.
Ulamog's Crusher: Budget annihilator.
Bane of Bala Ged: Pseudo annihilator.
Tyrant of Discord: Card advantage is best when your opponents lose cards/permanents.
Sphinx of the Final Word: In case their is a spell slinging subtheme.
AEtherize: Having giant spells suspended can put a target on you. This buys you time.
Mind's Desire: Free stuff acceleration.
Thought Reflection: Double draw.
Swarm Intelligence: Double spells.
Double Vision: More double spells.

Thanks for the suggestions, Unlife and TriusMalarky! Animar looks great, I've never passed down a free Kozilek. And Nikya is also amazing! Turn 4 Terastodon or Ulamog's Crusher always means some good times. I'll check both of them out!

Nice budget-Esque Braids build. Braids is really hard to build on a budget. I’ve been playing Braids consistently for a couple years now. I’m not got g to recommend big $$$ cards that fuel my deck but I will shed some insight into what works well with Braids —- big mana rocks: Gilded Lotus, Nyx Lotus, or even Dreamstone Hedron all have a place in Braids. Chromatic Orrery may be worth it for the colorless mana alone. Include Voltaic Key. Braids allows you to play these rocks for free, which provides ramp. As for other ramp: Caged Sun works nicely (Extraplanar Lens is out of budget). This all will allow you to ramp into you eldrazi titans with annihilator. Budget options include Pathrazer of Ulamog and Ulamog's Crusher. Void Winnower is crippling. Budget beasties may include Darksteel Colossus. You should run Strionic Resonator to double your Braids triggers OR annihilator triggers :))))) I’d ditch the land ramp as Braids will provide that as well. Include Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir and couple him with your Omen Machine or Knowledge Pool as your win con. Flash allows you to play Braids right before your own turn. Ditch the lab man effects—-make it a grind. I hope this helps.

Ulamog's Crusher would be good for with Liliana, Waker of the Dead and is not pricey at all,Horror of the Broken Lands is not bad either. If your going all in on reanimator you may want to get things like Stinkweed Imp and Murderous Cut.

Replace Nature's Lore for Sakura-Tribe Elder, bring at least 1x Krosan Tusker, cut at least 3x Wretched Gryff and 2x Tangle Golem for 2/3x Fierce Empath at least 1X Ulamog's Crusher and some mainboard Pulse of Murasa to retrieve STE and depletion lands, if you pack 4x pulses, you'll probably won't need the food lands, which can slow you down. Nissa's Pilgrimage and Arboreal Grazer are some cards to consider too, along Land Grant. Nissas nets you 3 cards, grazer ramps and stops aggro for a while and land grant is free. Chimeras seem a tad fragile,maybe you can use something like Blastoderm which is also retrievable with Pulse.
