That is part of what EDH should be about :)

As mentioned, when a card is oppressive when used with other very powerful cards, the card itself is not necessarily oppressive. I have had from the beginning the suspicion that my problems with Kozi are really just amplified by the stars aligning in its favor. Perhaps my disdain is really just shell shock from seeing Kozi out-oppress two decks designed to oppress everyone (horrible game with little fun for anyone and totally not a match up that will be repeated).

I can understand the shock. Kozilek can end games in a hurry, especially for the uninitiated. He tends to shut down decks that are used to having their spells resolving (oppressive decks tend to protect their stuff with counterspell effects). I've had more than one player try to counter Kozilek's activated ability with a counterspell, only to find out that it's my general countering their stuff, not me casting anything.

My favorite part about Kozilek is that I make people afraid of Codex Shredder.

I have played a few times against a friend who built new Kozilek. The deck has had explosive starts but most of the games i’ve played against it have been good. I agree with Sid that it’s the least obnoxious of all the in-print legendary eldrazi.
