I like the premise of this channel but are there any others who are in the more 100-150$ range? I want to watch videos on the more optimized decks
Filip Kevély (2 days ago)
Subscribed based purely on the production value of the video. Then again, this looks like a funny deck!
Gary Crooks (2 days ago)
Can it kill in one hit if players have 40 hp to start. Im a little confused
Michael Green (21 hours ago)
If you do twenty one damage which a commander, the receiver loses.
Perparim qallaku (2 days ago)
hey mate, first of all i love your videos :) i always take inspiration from it and change them a bit in my own style. Keep it up, waiting for your gameplays.
Donovan Long (2 days ago)
Cool deck, I was thinking of building this but using cards like junk diver and myr retriever to get back the artifacts discarded to counter spells
Casey0706 (2 days ago)
What about that one creature that when it deals damage you can cast your commander for free?
Eduardo Galindo (2 days ago)
If you have little bit more change in your pocket to spend get Ursa's power plant mine and Tower lands cards and if you are lucky to pull all three of them on your opening hand or within three rounds you have 7 Mana because you got Tron going
Jason Donofrio (2 days ago)
I love these videos, but even though it blows the budget, i cannot imagine a colorless/artifact deck that doesnt have Metalworker in it
Teo Garner (2 days ago)
My friends all made fun of my for trying to build a kozilek edh deck, who's laughing now😂 great vid btw.
Purple Mayo (3 days ago)
Looks fun as hell but ... i wonder if my playgroup is just much more cutthroat than most ... my rocks would likely just endup being exiled or destroyed, my 10 mana commander constantly countered, etc. I just don't see how this deck would ever work unless you are only playing vs non interactive decks.
BanditDil210 (3 days ago)
Wow! So glad u guys made the deck tech! Im stoked!
Copper Fox 13 (3 days ago)
I think helm of the host and eldrazi mimic could be good additions to this deck, helm creates copies of kozilek and the mimic gives you an additional attacker when you cast kozilek
Dead Ion (3 days ago)
sun scorched desert can't hit creatures, might aswell put in another waste.
max rex dinaco (3 days ago)
Can your next video be on slivers
MC GAMING (3 days ago)
You should do a Neheb, the eternal. That would be totally awesome!!
Emmmm... In EDH you start with 40 life total.
True! But you can kill with commander damage, which only takes 21. "In addition to the normal Magic loss conditions, if a player is dealt 21 points of combat damage from a single commander over the course of the game, that player loses the game." https://mtg.gamepedia.com/Commander_(format)

End bringer is the best card draw spell in white
Haha it might be
Max Kessler (3 days ago)
I have an incredibly similar deck but with Emrakul, the Promised End as Commander instead
That would be a fun one too!
Haru Takami (4 days ago)
Semblance Anvil would work too, I found some on TCGplayer for $1. Imprint an artifact creature and all artifacts and creatures cost 2 less.
Absolutely a reasonable upgrade!
Austin Pennington (4 days ago)
It's a shame that all is just cost as much as the deck itself because I really feel like that card is the big bonus for running a colorless commander.
Absolutely! It's a great card!
Xerovenom (4 days ago)
Brudiclad. Please?
Maybe in the future!
Harry (4 days ago)
I run a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth edh deck. The lands that have a large cost and tap to amke a dude are actually not that great and I would replace them with wastes if you can. I understand they were chosen for their cost but they are not good. Unknown Shores and Co. are strictly worse in this deck than a waste and again replace with a waste.
Yep! Just wish they would reprint wastes sometime.
MrToots (4 days ago)
those lands XD
Hah yep!
TheYGOMusketeer (4 days ago)
Would love to see some love for Boros!
Maybe in the future!
Sean Lengenfelder (4 days ago)
That mana base was hilarious. You're a legend man.
Haha thank you!
Lucas Reis Aceti (4 days ago)
Well, I think that this channel is freacking good. Maybe you should try a Hope of Ghirapur EDH too. Imagine that gigantic topter hitting those enemy faces with thousand of swords and equipments! It would be nice. Thank you.
Glad you are enjoying it! haha that would be fun!
Richard Cui (4 days ago)
tron lands? temple of the false god?
Tron lands are great reasonable upgrades! Temple isn't actually good enough since it doesn't do anything unless we have five lands and we need our mana early to get the mana rocks out quickly
ZyxDragon2 (4 days ago)
Kinda surprised that the new Zhalfrin void card wasn't in the mana base. Its cheap, enters untapped, and scrys. But great video as always. Edit: my god I'm blind, you know what you're doing.
It's in there actually! 13:46
Jacob Lloyd (4 days ago)
Make a Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest deck tech. I think it'd be done very well with you, Mitch, because Fleshbag marauder, merciless executioner, slum reaper, and plaguecrafter are cheap auto includes. I love your deck techs and especially this affinity deck because colorless is hard to build more so than a monocolored.
Would be a fun one!
Jacob Lloyd (4 days ago)
Not to mention Archfiend of Depravity 😆
pyrokazama (4 days ago)
Great deck but come on this deck is begging to get the tron lands, I'd say this is THE tron deck but I guess it's both out of budget and too obvious.
jsobchak (4 days ago)
Damn, this channel just keeps getting better and better. Keep up the great content!
Swagg3rGaming (5 days ago)
Love this video! I’ve had two copies of this card for a while and now I can put one to good use. Thank you so much for this deck tech. I also have a suggestion for your next video and maybe it could be fun and interesting. If you see this, I want to see you build Grand Arbiter, Maeyael, or Brudiclad. I’d love to see how you’d make them and see ways I could improve on my own decks.
The EpicMuffin (5 days ago)
Do you really Actually NEED the wastes? Dont you have a lot of ways to add colorless and not that much actual devotion?
Alex trollming (5 days ago)
If you tap any lanf for a color your commander dont have, it becomes colorless, so dont need wastes
Nathan Sukchai (5 days ago)
Which 4 commander quarters decks would you recommend to have for play against each other
Ry-7hym (5 days ago)
V-07-TR-0N
Garett Blackburn (5 days ago)
Could we see a o-kagachi, vengeful kami edh deck
ODIRGO (5 days ago)
I was thinking on doing a version of this deck by switching Ramos with Kozilek as the commander. I might not get the counters for pumping Ramos so often, but at lest I will have more options to chose from for ramping, like signets, some splashes of colors like x-burning spells, Sai, and a lot more flexible mana base.
Chaotic Revenge (5 days ago)
I would love to see a Riku deck!
dreddbolt (5 days ago)
Interesting. I guess I was expecting some more wastes.
Haynes Rosson (5 days ago)
You should do a zahid, djinn of the lamp voltron deck
Liem Solow (5 days ago)
Hallar, the Firefletcher deck tech? Maybe a Kefnet, the Mindful deck tech?
Both would be fun!
Paolo Martin Bueno (5 days ago)
Hey Mitch! I've been a fan of yours since I saw your budget Nicol Bolas deck and I've been playing it since then (with the recommended upgrades). Quick suggestion, this has probably been said already but how about changing your upgrades section to $10, $25 and $50 upgrades for that specific deck? I know it would take a little bit more time researching but I really think it'll be worth it. Just something to think about. Keep up the awesome job man! Thanks again for making amazing deck techs!
+Paolo Martin Bueno gotcha! I'll definitely think on it!
Paolo Martin Bueno (4 days ago)
+The Commander's Quarters That definitely makes sense! Your upgrade section is one of the things that differs from other deck tech makers. It's just that for people like me who's just getting into commander with some change to spare, I would really love to get some insights on what cards to put to these decks in general, meaning without taking into consideration the meta in my LGS. So I think chopping the upgrade section into $10, $20-25 and $50 will definitely help. Doesn't necessarily have to be in the video, say just put it in the video description so it doesn't change the structure of your videos.
Thanks! I will definitely take the suggestion in mind but I like to leave reasonable upgrades replacements up for the viewers to decide. It really depends on your playstyle and meta as to what you would take out and adjust with!
Freaky Frank (5 days ago)
You should do Arixmethes, Slumbering isle because I feel like it has potential
Julien M. Torres (5 days ago)
Do Bruna, LOA!!!!
Duncan Mcfiggen (5 days ago)
fun until an opponent drops vandalblast you gotta just concede
ranga bharadwaj (5 days ago)
Maybe next time you guys could add a part of the video dedicated to who would enjoy this deck, just maybe 3 things in each
+ranga bharadwaj oh nice! I'll have to look into that!
ranga bharadwaj (4 days ago)
+The Commander's Quarters So a lot of decks on MTGGoldfish have a small part before they do the deck tech dedicated to who might enjoy the deck. Something like You might like this deck if you, enjoy voltron, big creatures and equipment based decks. You might not like this deck if you, prefer control, like playing politically, and don't like voltron
Can you explain a little more on what you mean by this?
Jeffrey Chang (5 days ago)
until a few days ago, i didnt realize your topics had subtopics holy heck
Edward Brown (5 days ago)
I'll just point out that many more expensive commanders are cheaper if you purchase them soon after set release. My foil kozilek was $4. Yep. $4.
Nice!
Michael Gordon (5 days ago)
Have you made a stax deck tech yet? I really like the idea of artifact stax but I really don't know where to begin with it
Closest thing I have made to that is probably Muldrotha, which uses Possessed Portal as one of its win conditions.
Kevin Vodka (5 days ago)
I've been trying to keep up with all the videos. this one hits home. i had an Ulamog the ceaseless hunger EDH deck, but had taken it apart. this will allow me to put it back to together somewhat.
Nice!
ninaad patil (5 days ago)
could you do one for teysa, orzhov scion
Xenozide (5 days ago)
Hahaha now there's one for kozilek
Tallyesin (5 days ago)
I already own like half the cards in this deck, how fun!
Awesome!
Cole Dao (5 days ago)
Kozilek Voltron XD I’d like to see Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger next once again amazing vids thx man!
Christopher Rykiel (5 days ago)
I hope you don't have people running Stony Silence in your meta.
Yeah that wouldn't be good haha
Marcelo Leria (5 days ago)
Love the list, with some tweaks It could be used as base for a Traxos deck!!
j c (5 days ago)
I would recomand putting a geode golem (5 mana 5/3 artifact - golem whit trample) into this deck it go's for the low price of 0.43 on tcg player. And if it does damadge to a player u may cast your commander ? (U have to play additional cost like commander tax)
Magic Miracles (5 days ago)
I fell in love with these videos so quickly. Great job! I would like to see Brago, King Eternal maybe in the future? :)
Glad you are enjoying them! Would be a fun one!
Eze Sierra (5 days ago)
Amazing techs
Logan Powell (5 days ago)
Hoo boy, this is a spicy build. Love it!
Manatea (5 days ago)
don't get me wrong, I utterly love this channel, but I feel like its been nothing but Voltron lately...
Richard Murillo (5 days ago)
Awsome deck teck, would love to see a Hapatra 25$ bugdet deck tech!!!
LightningBound (5 days ago)
Eye of Ugin might be a reasonable upgrade instead of Urza's Incubator! On top of making eldrazi spells cost 2 less, it can also tutor for any colorless creature if you pay 7.
Definitely a good consideration! Only thing is that it doesn't tap for mana so you might be slower early in trying to get mana rocks out.
GH09159 (5 days ago)
i prefer to play kozilek as a control commander, using his counter ability to control any and all threats, while my ulamog's crushers and eldrazi devastators win.
David G (5 days ago)
You should do a budget deck tech of Rakdos, lord of riots! I saw someone at my lgs playing with it and looked super fun! Also, keep up the good work!
Jacob Brunette (5 days ago)
You should do one where you exclude the cost of a card that isn't commander (i.e doubling season).
Alex Mangum (5 days ago)
Reasonable upgrade #1: Get wastes. There are a lot of "everyone gets some basics" effects in commander, as well as a lot of spells that hate on nonbasic lands (blood moon, ruination, price of progress, wave of vitriol, magus of the moon, back to basics, just to name a few).
Absolutely! Wish Wizards would reprint them to bring the cost of this "basic land" down.
Devan Credeur (5 days ago)
This deck is pretty neat I didn't think a colorless deck in commander could be this inexpensive. And overall it looks like it can be very effective
Thanks!
Robert Pohlowan (5 days ago)
This is a great to to see built. But it seems very 1vs1. Would it hold up to a 4 player game?
+Robert Pohlowan oh nice! No problem!
Robert Pohlowan (5 days ago)
+The Commander's Quarters will look into that. In the middle of making your dino deck at the moment and see how that goes. Only a few cards off before seeing it in action. It's not the elder dino though. Thanks again for letting me know
Definitely can! Just need to be good at threat assessment and take the most threatening person to your strategy out quickly
Kyle Christopher Besa (5 days ago)
YESSS MY BOI KOZILEK HAS A DECK TECH HERE!
xakuyer (5 days ago)
Now I'm really curious about how you would build a Emrakul the promised end deck. I must admit I did open one in a booster so this request is kinda selfish but still, interesting commander to build around I think.
Fulvio Orrego (5 days ago)
Could you build the scorpion god ??
josé Rivera (5 days ago)
Please make a Yuriko, The Tiger's Shadow deck! she seems like a lot of fun and can use a lot of cheap pieces that work great with ninjutsu
Connor Bartelme (5 days ago)
How do you cast kozi on turn 3
John Perseo (5 days ago)
Nephalia academy doesn't work as stated in the video. If a ability an opponent controls causes you to discard it works not koze's ability
Tommy Landers (5 days ago)
+SickAlasta Library of Leng has a similar issue with Kozilek, where Library cares about about spells and effects, Kozilek's discard is a cost and is missed by the Library. Still a good card overall though
SickAlasta (5 days ago)
Library of leng is what this deck needs mah boy. Library of Leng 1C Artifact Skip the discard phase of your turn. If a spell or effect forces you to discard, you may discard to the top of your library rather than to your graveyard. If the discard is random, you may look at the card before choosing where to discard it. Market Price Normal $1.23 There are a few listings under a dollar.
My apologies, didn't mean it to sound that way! Should have mentioned it only works with opponents making us discard.
timaragon (5 days ago)
Is there any way we can get an Atraxa deck?
Maybe in the future!
Emmanuel Madail (5 days ago)
damn it. I'm trying to slow down on how many new decks I build... You're not helping.
Addison Sage (5 days ago)
Jhoira's Familiar would be very good in this deck, and it's also very cheap.
Definitely one I considered! Unfortunately with my testing it actually took longer to get Kozilek out with it in the deck.
OOM- 32 (5 days ago)
Colorless eldrazi tribal was my first deck ever made, with emrakul as commander. It just recently got turned into a kozilek ramp about 2 weeks ago. What is this magick, how did you know??
Nice! I'm psychic ;)
markus wagenleitner (5 days ago)
Voltron Kozilek? A surprise, to be sure, but a welcome one. May the Vandalblasts not be against you!
False Pankake (2 days ago)
I'm going to post this to r/prequelmemes for 5 karma
Or may you have a 4 CMC spell in your hand and Kozilek in play already haha.
Moffatt966 (5 days ago)
YOOOOOO I was hoping but didn't think you'd do an eldrazi commander! So excited!
Glad you are excited!
DrMrSisterFister (5 days ago)
I hope you do Lazev the Multifarious soon
Thiatyr (5 days ago)
Loved the video! Sounds like you got a new mic too, you sound great!
Several Gaming (5 days ago)
I bought og Ulamog because I was gonna make a $45 and had $100 to make it so now I have more money to use for the deck
That's great!
Commander Mop (5 days ago)
i arrived at the point where i grant your videos a like within the first 10 seconds, just because i already know they will be good. keep going :-)
Crimson Knight (5 days ago)
finally a budget eldrazi, to bad it's a voltron deck, but makes sense
+Crimson Knight Nice! And great suggestions!
Crimson Knight (4 days ago)
+The Commander's Quarters not gonna be a patron yet unfortunately but by the end of the year it will happen, so we can make deck and get it to me by new years of next year, like a gift. I do have a suggestion for a commander, either Lazav the Multifarious, or Aryel, Knight of windgrace.
Yeah tried a few other ways, but this was the only focused way I could find to fit into the budget.
Calcidermo1 (5 days ago)
Have you thought about an Oloro, Ageless Ascetic budget deck? it would be so nice to see, he is so annoying, and so'd be the deck.
+Griff Fourn a great card in a lot of decks but I would have to disagree for this one. Before you get five lands out it doesn't do anything for you. So it's going to take you longer to ramp and get your mana rocks out, setting you back.
Griff Fourn (4 days ago)
+The Commander's Quarters hey, in this deck in particular, but in most decks, I find Temple of the False God to be pretty good, and it's only .14$ and taps for 2
+Griff Fourn looks pretty sweet!
Griff Fourn (5 days ago)
Here's a budget Oloro deck I built. It's not 25$ on budget, but it's 50$, so it's not terrible. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/esper-budget-control-with-lifegain-shenanigans/
Would be a fun one to build!
Grog (5 days ago)
I hope they lift the restriction on colourless commanders in the future. At least let them act as a mono-colour commander of your choice, like R or U, instead of shafting the entire deck. Then again I'm biased since there are some non-legendary Eldrazi creatures which I want to build a deck around but can't ;(
Eliakim Rodrigues (5 days ago)
Colorless is balanced in EDH - they have more than enough support. Also loosening the idea of a commander's color identity ruins the philosophy of the format.
Tyler Hinson (5 days ago)
No tron lands??
Alex Kendall (4 days ago)
+Chris Matejic chronicles are about $1.50 a piece. That's rather budget, though this was running it pretty close since CQ runs an EXTREMELY low budget (needing to average about 25 cents a card, one reason why the commander tends not to be included.)
+Tyler Hinson definitely an upgrade to consider if you can afford it!
Tyler Hinson (5 days ago)
+Chris Matejic A heavy play set is only $1 or so per card. Plus would be a good upgrade suggestion.
Chris Matejic (5 days ago)
tron lands aren't budget lol
Mr_Dragon (5 days ago)
Fun land worth mentioning, mirror pool. Lots of utility there.
Absolutely! Wish it was cheaper.
Bozz Lightyr (5 days ago)
Do you think you might do say 40 or 50 dollar optimized decks in the future?
Maybe in the future! But in my opinion, an optimized deck has no budget. The difference between optimized and competitive is just the tier of the commander
Samuel Bateson (5 days ago)
Hey I really love your videos, they gave me inspiration building on a low budget. Personal advice, try doing more mono colored deck techs, it's easier to build the mana base on them cause... well... just one color. Can you do another mono white deck other than sram? I really dislike auras, so i wanted to see what options you would offer for a different deck. If you don't want to do the deck it's fine. I'm still happy with some new different decks :), keep it up, love your channel.
Thanks for the suggestion! Maybe in the future! Thanks!
Patric Saulter (5 days ago)
No way. You didnt. You made my favorite commander into a deck. I have all of the eldrazi titans and I will shove then into this
Super Fast Tortoise (5 days ago)
Did you forget Temple of the false God? Also terramorphic expanse and evolving wilds work in this deck too- as well as with some of the sac-lands running in this deck- adding only crucible of worlds is a reasonable upgrade-
Super Fast Tortoise (4 days ago)
+The Commander's Quarters that's good to know- Iv'e never built a colorless commander deck- but my thoughts were founded on other deck builds- I believe you know the deck better than me- That's why I am learning now-
+Super Fast Tortoise there are 37 lands in the deck, but the problem with Temple is that it can't help you until turn 5 (or turn 4 if you get the one card that land ramps you) with this deck, which is way too late. You need to get your mana ramp set up way before then.
Super Fast Tortoise (5 days ago)
+The Commander's Quarters I must of had something wrong with the deck count because I'd thought you'd be running like 37-38 land- the build could be different a little shifting-
Super Fast Tortoise (5 days ago)
+Dumb Dumb Stupid Head they fetch for Wastes- with a crucible out that ramp
Temple of the False God doesn't help until you get 5 lands. You need every land to come into play and be able to produce immediately, so unfortunately it just isn't good enough.
Bryan Lariviere (5 days ago)
I have to say, when i built my first colorless deck i was surprised how quickly i ramped into Kozi. (Granted i was playing Butcher of truth, kozi 2.0 was in the 99) I plan to take apart my Yuriko deck (Which has my eldrazis) and grab Emrakul 2.0. I want to make Eldrazi Tribal. Butcher at the helm (As he nets you 4 cards when you cast. If you have a big hand Kozi 2.0 doe snot help as much) Also Butcher has annihilator.
Butcher is a fun one as well!
Bryan Lariviere (5 days ago)
+Mr_Dragon Back when Zendikar was in standard I was still playing standard. i had a RG deck i had named Helldrazi. The main strategy was ramp up and use Spanswire of Ulamog to cast my sideboard, which had all three legendary eldrazi and in full annihilator 49 (i think it was 49) It actually did pretty well for being jank. Since emrakul would allow me to get an extra turn, essentially they all had haste.
Mr_Dragon (5 days ago)
This doesn't help in edh but my friend has a modern UR eldrazi deck with Kozilek, the great distortion at the helm. The deck is full of instants/ sorceries, and runs creatures like herald of Kozilek and conduit of ruin along with the colorless lands like eldrazi temple and shrine of the forsaken gods to ramp into Kozilek sooner and with few cards in hand. He often draws 6 cards with the effect.
Callum Vlex (5 days ago)
I'm really glad you included the wastes in the cost, 'cus I know many people would just assume that buying ~$10 of basics was something everyone had already done. ^.^

Awesome!

Synod Sanctum: Krosan Grip? This deck in general is SUPER risky. A simple counterspell and you're screwed
