Taisuke Ishii is no stranger to Eggs, specifically in the post-Second Sunrise world. He finished 7-3 at Pro Tour Born of the Gods with a very similar deck, and he ran it back at the recent Grand Prix Kobe where he
got a respectable 31st place.
His previous version was all-in on casting Emrakul, the Aeons Torn off Krark-Clan Ironworks, but this version is a little different. This version has
eschewed the Tron lands and has a mini Polymorph option with Thopter Foundry and Blinkmoth Nexus.
This deck seems reliant on Krark-Clan Ironworks, which is certainly a weakness, but a raw Thopter Foundry with a ton of artifacts you don’t mind
sacrificing seems like a fine backup plan. Instead of trying to hardcast Emrakul, you can make a bunch of Thopters instead, which should also guarantee
victory but gain you a bunch of much needed life as well.
Ishii seems to continually fall short with the deck, but since he continues working on it, he clearly thinks it shows promise. I look forward to seeing
