    Powerless Eldrazi Stompy

    Engaging with the Vintage scene over the past 6 months, I have witnessed a shift. The Eldrazi that stormed Modern and then Legacy have made their way to Vintage! The deck attacks on angles that are not easy to deal with in the format.

    Below is a (relatively) colo(u)rless list. It's based on Jason Jaco's deck that came 10th at NYSE IV that was covered quite heavily on the Serious Vintage Podcast. It is not 'budget' as such, as it's ideal build does not run power.

    Land (25)
    4x Ancient Tomb
    4x Cavern of Souls
    4x Eldrazi Temple
    3x Eye of Ugin
    3x Ghost Quarter
    1x Strip Mine
    2x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
    4x Wasteland

    Creature (23)
    4x Eldrazi Mimic
    3x Endbringer
    4x Endless One
    2x Matter Reshaper
    2x Phyrexian Metamorph
    4x Reality Smasher
    4x Thought-Knot Seer

    Instant (6)
    3x Dismember
    3x Warping Wail

    Artifact (6)
    1x Chalice of the Void
    1x Crucible of Worlds
    4x Null Rod

    Sideboard (15)
    4x Grafdigger's Cage
    4x Leyline of Sanctity
    4x Leyline of the Void
    2x Spatial Contortion
    1x Warping Wail

    The Plan
    T1 Chalice for zero, or Tomb for Null Rod, or both. Then stomp, stomp, stomp and hope to get there. Thank god there's no Terminus in Vintage.

    The Sideboard Plan
    Does it Dredge? Well, you'll want Cages and Leyline of the Void.
    Does it Oath? Well, you'll also want those cages.
    Does it Tendrils? Well, you'll want Leyline of Sanctity.
    Does it Mentor? Well, kill that thing with a Spatial Contortion.
    I think you get the idea...

    Re: Powerless Eldrazi Stompy

    I wrote a pretty lengthy free double-tournament report about this deck, available on Eternal Central here:
    http://www.eternalcentral.com/unpowe...nament-report/

    6-1-1 at NYSE4, and then 5-1 1st place at KnightWare LA Vintage a couple weeks later. The deck is a blast, and is by far the cheapest competitive Vintage deck, if anyone is looking to experiment.

    I also wrote a (paid) 100+ page book on all Vintage Eldrazi variants for EC, available here:
    http://www.eternalcentral.com/product/bpve/

    This goes far more in depth, about deck building, mana base, Eldrazi tactics, support cards, sideboarding, and more. It looks at Workshop Ravager Thought-Knot Aggro, Workshop Eldrazi Aggro, White Eldrazi, unpowered JacoDrazi, and even a couple of unpowered White Eldrazi variants. Its a good reference for anyone looking to jump in to the format, or looking at understanding how to build and play Eldrazi in Vintage.

    Also should fit in a Lodestone Golem and a Trinisphere, imo.
    Belcher, RUG Delver, Death & Taxes, Colorless Eldrazi, Goblins

    The book addresses all of these things, quite in depth. Read Trinisphere, and Eye of Ugin.

    I can highly recommend the book by JACO to everyone who is interested about the format. Great read!
