25 Land
4 Urza's Tower
4 Urza's Mine
4 Urza's Power Plant
4 Cloudpost
4 Vesuva
4 Eldrazi Temple
1 Eye of Ugin

22 Creatures
4 Ulamog's Crusher
4 Artisan of Kozilek
3 Hand of Emrakul
1 Kozilek, Butcher of Truth
1 Spawnsire of Ulamog
3 Pathrazer of Ulamog
1 Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre
4 It That Betrays
1 Emrakul, the Aeons Torn

13 Other Spells
4 All is Dust
4 Not of This World
4 Skittering Invasion
1 Eldrazi Conscription


Rules for this deck --
1) No colored mana generation, ever: essentially, card choices are as though one of the Legendary Eldrazi were the "commander" of the deck
2) No more than one of each Legendary Eldrazi

Basically, what I'm worried about is the mana base. I'm currently on a basic Eight Post with the Urzatron to spare, but I could potentially drop Tron for Glimmerposts, Thespian's Stages, and something else to really push the post angle. The basic game plan is to ramp to 7+ real fast, drop All Is Dust, and then start playing Eldrazi to dominate in a post-wrath world. Some day, I hope to live the dream and resolve All Is Dust with It That Betrays on the field.


BONUS: I've designed a scheme deck for this deck. I'm The Threat at my multiplayer table anyway, so Archenemy seems like fun.

2 - Behold the Power of Destruction
2 - I Call on the Ancient Magics
2 - Introductions Are in Order
2 - May Civilization Collapse
2 - Only Blood Ends Your Nightmares
2 - Your Puny Minds Cannot Fathom
2 - Every Last Vestige Shall Rot
2 - I Know All, I See All
1 - Choose Your Champion
1 - My Wish Is Your Command
1 - Surrender Your Thoughts
1 - The Very Soil Shall Shake

How do I give cookies?

On the other hand a friend of mine made a deck like this that used green to make Gelatinous Genesis and used Sylvan Scrying and Reap and Sow with 12 post.

So what do you do the first five turns?

I'd really hope the deck could hit 7 before "five turns". I'd consider t3 or t4 to be "on schedule" for 7 mana, about when a regular control deck would wrath.

I suppose this suggests I ought to be running Glimmerposts/Stages over Urzatron, since it widens my options for getting 7 mana on turn 3. I expect to mull decently aggressively for the first Cloudpost, though. It's rather mission-critical.

The other option is, of course Worn Powerstone and it's ilk. If I could justify a playset of Sol Ring, that might be a "solution" since a T1 Post > Ring makes 7 mana on turn 3 possible with Cloudpost+Glimmerpost+Anything since they all make at least 2 mana. In any case, that brings All is Dust and Skittering Invasion online. I'm not too worried about the first three turns though, since most of the decks in my playgroup don't really do much except ramp until then.

Exaggeration, but what I meant was, are you not allowed to play anything not Eldrazi?

I'd prefer all my "Business spells" to be Eldrazi, but as my suggestion of Sol Ring should indicate, I'm open to other things as long as they neither generate nor utilize colored mana
