The annihilator 6 is sick.

@Sliver_Master: Cards are only spells while they're on the stack. A Necrotic Sliver on the battlefield can be used to blow up Emrakul without any help from a Ghostflame Sliver.

Why is this banned in EDH now? If you get the 15 mana and noone else at the table has an answer, you deserve to win.

At my shop, this is the only "officially" banned card that isn't on our shops banned list, though we have Jhoira banned Instead.

@psuedonaut: how does the Shield Dancer block it? It doesn't fly.

@Johnald: You're right on all counts, except that you're forgetting that Wizards R&D spends too much time worrying about Limited and not enough about other formats. In their minds, Emrakul is the RoE equivilant of an Overrun in M10, only more important to the plot and to their profits, so it's a mythic instead of uncommon. In both cases, the moment the card drops, the game ends, almost always.

@SleetFox: I don't think it's possible for an immortal creature the size of a mountain, with a physical form that was forced on it by a trio of planeswalkers aeons after its creation/formation/whatever-happened, to ever have developed reproductive organs, so I'd say that Emrakul doesn't have a gender.

Journey to Nowhere and Oblivion Ring get rid of it, for reasons Lollercoaster describes.
I tell you a funny way to deal with it, though.
Block with Tidehollow Strix

Big bad Emrakul dies to a 2/1..... lol!

@ugbootz: How does Stone Idol Trap help? Emrakul has flying

@Ah_MaclimesZero: "Spell" is the keyword you're looking for. Once a permanent is on the battlefield, it's not longer a spell, hence, he has no protection from Tidehollow Strix or any other creature. Same goes for O'ring and Journey to Nowhere, at the time their abilities resolve they're permanents, not spells, which is why they are some of the most effective ways of getting rid of Emrakul.
Before you start having a go at me go learn what a "spell" is.

@Revelation666: For crying out loud, LEARN WHAT A SPELL IS.
O'ring and Journey's abilities activate as they enter the battlefield, when they're PERMANENTS, not spells. A card is only a spell whilst it... (see all)

Name recalls Emrikol the Chaotic from the old 1st ed. AD&D PBH.

Sweet karakas combo. He is too powerful for edh. A floating time warp in your exile zone is nuts. In addition, 15 colorless mana is not much in edh multiplayer. There are many ways to get infinite colorless mana combos. Here is one off the top of my head, power artifact, and basalt monolith.
