This is awesome. How do I vote on the commander for your next video?
Thanks! That's actually one of the Patron rewards
Gaël Schenegg (14 days ago)
Very nice deck!!! =D But, what happen if our opponent have an artifacts clean table? X)
Then we might be in trouble haha

Eldrazi temple 6.66? Satan confirmed
Lucas Waitman (18 days ago)
At 11:28, shouldn’t endless sands be in there?
Lucas Waitman just for organization purposes I like to keep the lands in the same spot. But you are correct that it helps with this

Instead of manabase

I came to this video curious about how you'd build a colorless deck on a budget. I'm leaving this video with an outstanding desire to make and upgrade this deck! I even got some good stuff to put in it, like Darksteel Plate and Blackblade Reforged!
That's awesome!
Stephen Kirk (25 days ago)
Got the structure of this deck and upgraded it with maybe 5 cards and I’m extremely impressed at effective it is. Also random side note but this deck does extremely well against land destruction because you have so many mana rocks that play more mana rocks. I played 2 games where all lands were destroyed and I got so far ahead and won both.

Anyone else hate the big Eldrazi's?
Caden Valero (27 days ago)
Just built this deck and I love it! Thanks for making a video on it! I would love to see a video on a Doran, the Siege Tower deck
fournm (27 days ago)
Love a lot of this, but I think I disagree about Wayfarer's Bauble--it's not enough other utility and with only 3 basic lands I don't think that really counts as much ramp. Though, I'm not sure it'd be a Commander's Quarters deck without it......
kosche99 (27 days ago)
this deck won't work with the powerlevel of my playgroup.. needle like effect and boom, all your win chances gone.
Definitely depends on the group!
Steve (29 days ago)
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 (1 month ago)
Subscribed based purely on the production value of the video. Then again, this looks like a funny deck!
Gary Crooks (1 month ago)
Can it kill in one hit if players have 40 hp to start. Im a little confused
Michael Green (29 days ago)
If you do twenty one damage which a commander, the receiver loses.
Perparim qallaku (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
What about that one creature that when it deals damage you can cast your commander for free?
Eduardo Galindo (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
Wow! So glad u guys made the deck tech! Im stoked!
Copper Fox 13 (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
sun scorched desert can't hit creatures, might aswell put in another waste.
max rex dinaco (1 month ago)
Can your next video be on slivers
MC GAMING (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
Brudiclad. Please?
Maybe in the future!
Harry (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
those lands XD
Hah yep!
TheYGOMusketeer (1 month ago)
Would love to see some love for Boros!
Maybe in the future!
Sean Lengenfelder (1 month ago)
That mana base was hilarious. You're a legend man.
Haha thank you!
Lucas Reis Aceti (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
Not to mention Archfiend of Depravity 😆
pyrokazama (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
Damn, this channel just keeps getting better and better. Keep up the great content!
Swagg3rGaming (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
If you tap any lanf for a color your commander dont have, it becomes colorless, so dont need wastes
Nathan Sukchai (1 month ago)

Could we see a o-kagachi, vengeful kami edh deck
ODIRGO (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
I would love to see a Riku deck!
dreddbolt (1 month ago)
Interesting. I guess I was expecting some more wastes.
Haynes Rosson (1 month ago)
You should do a zahid, djinn of the lamp voltron deck
Liem Solow (1 month ago)
Hallar, the Firefletcher deck tech? Maybe a Kefnet, the Mindful deck tech?
Both would be fun!
Paolo Martin Bueno (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
You should do Arixmethes, Slumbering isle because I feel like it has potential
Julien M. Torres (1 month ago)
Do Bruna, LOA!!!!
Duncan Mcfiggen (1 month ago)
fun until an opponent drops vandalblast you gotta just concede
ranga bharadwaj (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
until a few days ago, i didnt realize your topics had subtopics holy heck
Edward Brown (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
could you do one for teysa, orzhov scion
Xenozide (1 month ago)
Hahaha now there's one for kozilek
Tallyesin (1 month ago)
I already own like half the cards in this deck, how fun!
Awesome!
Cole Dao (1 month ago)
Kozilek Voltron XD I’d like to see Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger next once again amazing vids thx man!
Christopher Rykiel (1 month ago)
I hope you don't have people running Stony Silence in your meta.
Yeah that wouldn't be good haha
Marcelo Leria (1 month ago)
Love the list, with some tweaks It could be used as base for a Traxos deck!!
j c (1 month 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 (1 month 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!

don't get me wrong, I utterly love this channel, but I feel like its been nothing but Voltron lately...
Richard Murillo (1 month ago)
Awsome deck teck, would love to see a Hapatra 25$ bugdet deck tech!!!
LightningBound (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
You should do one where you exclude the cost of a card that isn't commander (i.e doubling season).
Alex Mangum (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
YESSS MY BOI KOZILEK HAS A DECK TECH HERE!
xakuyer (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
Could you build the scorpion god ??
josé Rivera (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
How do you cast kozi on turn 3
John Perseo (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
Is there any way we can get an Atraxa deck?
Maybe in the future!
Emmanuel Madail (1 month ago)
damn it. I'm trying to slow down on how many new decks I build... You're not helping.
Addison Sage (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
Voltron Kozilek? A surprise, to be sure, but a welcome one. May the Vandalblasts not be against you!
False Pankake (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
YOOOOOO I was hoping but didn't think you'd do an eldrazi commander! So excited!
Glad you are excited!

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 (1 month ago)
finally a budget eldrazi, to bad it's a voltron deck, but makes sense
+Crimson Knight Nice! And great suggestions!
Crimson Knight (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
No tron lands??
Alex Kendall (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
+Chris Matejic A heavy play set is only $1 or so per card. Plus would be a good upgrade suggestion.
Chris Matejic (1 month ago)
tron lands aren't budget lol
