Vintage Solitaire Eldrazi Part 5 of 5

Go back to part 4

This is the final version of this Solitaire test deck to test drive my spanking new Black Lotus rental. I switched in two Wurmcoil Engines for two Endbringers. It happened often enough that I would have a Mishra's Workshop doing nothing for me.

Here is a starting hand. It felt a little too heavy and I opted for a mulligan.

Ancestral Recall is great in an opening hand.

I chose not to keep Mox Pearl.

And instead I got a land to get blue from, and then I drew a Mox Ruby.

A Phyrexian Metamorph without a valid target is dead in the hand.

It's looking like a lame position.

And then I draw a Precursor Golem and cast it immediately.

Now I have a valid target for Phyrexian Metamorph.

And I can even cast a Wurmcoil Engine.

It's overkill for a Solitaire game, but why not: I cast a second Precursor Golem.

Then I shut the board.

Here is a another starting hand. I choose to mulligan.

And once again I draw a Library of Alexandria (sweet!).

I reject this Null Rod.

Instead I draw a Tolarian Academy.

I am ready to build a strong hand.

An early drop.

Another early drop.

A mid-game Precursor Golem.

Phyrexian Metamorph for Precursor Golem.

Lodestone Golem and Wurmcoil Engine.

Here is another starting hand. Black Lotus is such a huge boost.

Early Wurmcoil Engine.

Early Endless One.

I played Null Rod in error. I should have played Sphere of Resistance first.

Here is another solid starting hand.

Once again, a turn 1 Wurmcoil Engine.

Matter Reshaper.

Phyrexian Metamorph for a second Wurmcoil Engine.

Add a Reality Smasher.
