    Re: [DECK] Eldrazi Stompy

    What's the reasoning behind SSG over ESG as fast mana?

    Do you have red SB cards or is it so you can hard cast a 2/2 under Blood Moon?

    Just seems like the ability to play for G in World Breaker (sideboard or maindeck) would be more valuable.

    How good has Thorn been for you guys?

    MD Thorn has honestly been very weak for me since it does nothing against other creature based decks like Nic Fit, Maverick, D&T, Goblins, very little against Lands etc.

    I now play it in the sideboard and only bring it in vs. combo decks.

    This is why I've switched out to 2-3 Trinisphere MD instead, it's all around a much stronger card.

    However, Tangle Wire has been very solid and it's making me take a second look at trying Thorn again due to it's natural synergy with Tangle Wire.

    Has 4 Thorn really been worth it maindeck for you guys?

    I'm testing a 2/2 split with Trinisphere/Thrones but to be honest don't have enough experience yet to tell you if it's good one way or the other.

    I've based mine off this list: http://sales.starcitygames.com//deck...p?DeckID=99550

    Thinking of cutting an Endbringer for another Dismember.

    Also, it looks like some decks (Miracles, for example) are starting to main deck blood moons, likely not a coincidence lol. That's gonna be trouble, I have issues with enchantments, even post board. Ratchet Bomb is super slow .... anyone having issues with this and have found ways around it?

    Holly has been working on one piece by piece: http://www.mtgthesource.com/forums/s...ht=#post936559

    I don't know if this meets the criteria or not, but it's the most complete primer I've seen so far.

    Re: [DECK] Eldrazi Stompy

    Thats why I need. Holly if you are willing, can you make that the start of a new thread and update it from there onwards? Some time in the next 22 hours would be best. I will have the update done this time tomorrow. If not I will update the OP with links to those posts and move this over as a stop gap.

    That's why both MD.Geist and me are working on the Wg splash. The colorless build is effective, but also easy to counter. I believe that color splashes to deal with the meta adaptions to Eldrazi are inevitable. Question is how deep are you willing to go down the rabbit hole?

    That's why I fling as much shit as possible and see what sticks (like Displacer, World Breaker and several white SB cards). As for Spirit Guides, I don't believe Gray Ogres are going to help you win the game under a Blood Moon. ESG into World Breaker can, though.

    Unless you're playing maindeck equipment that is. But if no MD Jittes and MD Worldbreakers instead then ESG is definitely the better route to go.

    Re: [DECK] Eldrazi Stompy

    Split the finals at another small local with this deck. My current list is:

    4 Endless One
    4 Eldrazi Mimic
    2 Simian Spirit Guide
    1 Matter Reshaper
    4 Thought-Knot Seer
    4 Reality Smasher
    3 Endbringer

    4 Chalice of the Void
    4 Thorn of Amethyst

    2 Warping Wail
    3 Dismember

    4 Ancient Tomb
    3 City of Traitors
    4 Eldrazi Temple
    3 Eye of Ugin
    4 Cavern of Souls
    4 Wasteland
    2 Karakas
    1 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

    Sideboard

    1 Karakas
    4 Tormod's Crypt
    3 Phyrexian Revoker
    2 Ratchet Bomb
    2 Umezawa's Jitte
    2 Faerie Macabre
    1 Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

    I cut 2 more Matter Reshapers for a 3rd Endbringer and a 3rd Dismember. Matter Reshaper is filler, and the last one will likely get replaced by a Phyrexian Metamorph. The deck continues to be extremely powerful - I beat Shardless BUG and Bant, and then played out an ID against U/R Delver and beat that as well. Shardless BUG is still IMO not a very good matchup, but my hands were pretty explosive in both games and sometimes you just have too many big dudes for them to deal with. Endbringer is nuts and I only regretted adding a third when I was testing against Lands after the tournament, otherwise it was great all evening. I will likely mess around with a color-splash list next, but this deck has proven to be very strong. I just wish there was one more colorless Eldrazi to replace Reshaper, I guess Metamorph is probably the best thing we're going to get.

    I have edited the opening post as a quick fix for the time being. If there are any questions, please shoot me a message.

    Congrats, you are one of a very small group of decks that has gone right for Developing to DTB but you hold the record in time taken to do it.

    Grixis Control was one if I remember correctly.

    @all
    Sorry I didnt update it further, got some new deadlines because of some law-changes etc. Probably not able to do the rest until the 23th of march. Sorry for the delay !
