Description

Eldrazi EDH! The idea behind this deck is to only play Eldrazi creatures (Wandering Archaic   is close enough to being an Eldrazi :P) and stick to Eldrazi-adjacent cards when possible. The deck can be made more powerful with the inclusion of colorless staples such as Blightsteel Colossus and others, but I purposefully excluded them. The general is easily changeable based on your pod, but Kozilek, the Great Distortion is probably the strongest in any given playgroup. I like Ulamog in the command zone somtimes as it's removal, but a refill to seven cards and then having the ability to counter stuff is quite strong.

This deck is well tuned and can handle strong pods.

Let's talk combos:

Eldrazi have strong cast triggers. Cards like Cloudstone Curio, Sanctum of Eternity and Erratic Portal are ways you can return Eldrazi to your hand to abuse said cast triggers. Alternatively, Strionic Resonator and Lithoform Engine let you copy them.

The deck loses hard to flyer swarms if you're not lucky enough to be finding your mass removal, like Ugin, the Spirit Dragon or All Is Dust. Be warned. Eldrazi Monument and Akroma's Memorial can help out with flying, but the latter isn't on theme and the former does more to hurt than help. The only reach Eldrazi is World Breaker but its color identity is green...depending on your playgroup you may be allowed to cast it with Spawnsire of Ulamog :)

Another weakness of the deck is mass artifact removal. You rely very heavily on low cost ramp artifacts to speed out your larger spells. Buried Ruin can help if one or two pieces are removed, but seldom recovers against Vandalblast type effects.

Tuning

These are suggestions for tuning your deck to different playgroups.

Tune up:

This section is a bit more in-depth, as you can really power this deck up if you'd like.

It might be correct to play Ugin's Nexus and try and shoot it with Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre or something. It may also be correct to play Scroll Rack, despite the lack of shuffle effects. It combos well with Sensei's Divining Top and Mystic Forge.

You can change up the big dumb Eldrazi such as Reality Smasher or Endless One for relevant hate pieces (Torpor Orb | Grafdigger's Cage | Weathered Runestone | etc). Eldrazi with proactive cast triggers are more important than the beaters.

You can draw your whole library with Sensei's Divining Top, Mystic Forge and either Ugin, the Ineffable or infinite mana (see below). To save yourself from milling out, just dump any Eldrazi titan into your yard when discarding to hand size (make sure your Thought Vessel isn't out). When powered up, the deck is quite consistent at achieving infinite mana, drawing through itself and then winning with Cloudstone Curio, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger and any other creature. Cast Ulamog, exile two things, cast another creature to return Ulamog to hand; rinse and repeat until all of your opponents permanents are exiled. If that isn't enough to make your opponents concede, cast Thought-Knot Seer over and over; bouncing it will trigger its leaves the battlefield ability, eventually drawing your opponents out. You can even go off on at instant speed if you have Winding Canyons on the battlefield!
