I want to name my child after this. Nobody would make fun of them.
NOBODY.

"Dad, the kids at school are making fun of me again"
"You have an extra turn and Annihilator 6, sort it out yourself!"

I run an Ulvenwald Tracker in my mono green deck, almost exclusively to take care of threats like this.

Opponent drops Emrakul, everyone groans and throws their hands onto the table.

End of his turn, tap two to flash in ambush viper, another two to make him fight Emrakul.

Not only am I the new hero of the game, but I got to enjoy the flavor and imagery of a bitchy little viper biting his little fangs into Emrakul's gigantic, quasi-biological, eon-tearing ass.

I was playing a Mill deck, and someone had this in there... I bet they were thinking "hey, I'm not going to get milled out, I've got Emrakul!"

And then I played Lazav, Dimir Mastermind. And he became Lazav, the Aeons Torn.

Which... Adding Hexproof to Emrakul just makes him that much harder to get rid of. Sure, I didn't get the extra turn, but since Lazav had been around for a bit, I DID get to attack the moment he transformed.

Hellurin listed some of the cards that can neutralize Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. Here is that list edited for Lazav, the Aeons Torn:

...

Yeah, that's right. None of those listed.

And the Hexproof is inherent, unlike equipment and what have you that can be destroyed.

Hey, I'm not saying he's unbeatable. But it was incredibly fun using him. A moment in the game I'll remember.

When I first got into Magic I thought the Eldrazi were a pretty interesting concept. Anything based off of Lovecraft's stories must be damn cool. Not much of a win condition, but something that's a nice game finisher once you scrape up 10-15 mana.

But then people started to actually blow 40-50 bucks on these and stick them in decks that cheated them out - Quicksilver Amulet being a fan favorite. A turn 4 Emrakul is not a fun thing to deal with, even without the extra turn. Odds are you'll only have 4 lands and maybe 2-3 creatures, if that, to annihilate. He and the rest of the Eldrazi are just stupidly powerful with no drawbacks besides their high mana cost.

That being said there are still plenty of methods to get rid of him - naturally any sort of artifacts (Executioner's Capsule being my favorite) or world spells (Merciless Eviction, Worldfire, Apocalypse, Damnation/... (see all)

Witness Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, wielder of god-like power and destruction, scourge of the multiverse, with the strength of approximately 30 Little Girls!

I'm a Timmy at heart, but the annihilator ability is anything but fun, it's soulcrushing. I'd trade annihilator ability for trample any day of the week.
