Personally, I think he is the best Eldrazi.
Appropriately broken cost, indestructible, and it will handily destroy an opponent's combo piece, disregarding counterspells entirely.

You know, its kinda sad logging on here and finding streams of complaints about a card. My 'favorites' being the 'its over powered' complaint.

So, lets get that out of the way first...
Dies to:
Path to Exile
Swords to Plow Shares
Night Terrors
Oblivion Ring (if properly Trigger-cheated)
Archon of Justice

Kay, so its killable. Now, how do they get it out? mana ramp, creature cheaters (piper, amulet, etc) or some kinda mass polymorph thingy.
Kay. so kill THAT. is that so hard? Piper is a 1/1 for christ's sake... Amulet is an artifact, run an acidic slime and splash green? cmon now. Counter their Mass Polymorph, or just for god's sake MIND CONTROL it. all that work on their part, to hand you a creature.

Personally, I thought the mass of Eldritch abominations was pretty awesome, I mean Cosmic Horror Stories are pretty fun, now that Im actually seeing a few here and there (and they're not even that Cosmic Horror-ey in-game, cause they CAN die. I cant count the times Ive had to st... (see all)

"Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity."
~William B. Yeats, "The Second Coming"

I don't know if the nod to gyres was intentional, Wizards, but I love it.

I think that among the three Eldrazi titans, this one has the nicest art. Ulamog almost looks god-like in this gem of an art piece. Picture a humanoid in that stance, with golden armor...it will be like a warrior god walking the earth!

Playing with Eldrazi is like arguing over the internet...

This guy is seriously underrated. Kozilek is a more efficient fighter, but if you attack with anything that can kill a player in 2 hits and makes them sacrifice 4 or more permanents, it doesn't really matter how strong it is. On the other hand, this guy is indestructible and can destroy key threats when he comes into play. He's also immune to card disadvantage, because even if he's countered without spending a card, there's no way around his Vindicate ability.

I would call him better than Kozilek, and unless Eldrazi only see play by cheating, I think Emrakul's cost is prohibitive enough that Ulamog is better than it as well. Plus, it's predictable. If you ramp yourself past 12 and don't cast anything, they pretty much know exactly what you're planning.

@ DoctorKenneth;
It might also have been a nod to Carroll, because, let's face it: this thing makes a game very confusing.

"`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe."
-Lewis Carroll, Jabberwocky

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
