Zaueski on Grixis Control Finisher

5 days ago

I'm going to build a Grixis spells deck for HOU. Obviously that whole set has not been spoiled as of yet but I wanted to organize my thoughts on the top end creatures and then hear your replies...

Torrential Gearhulk vs. The Scorpion God


Torrential Gearhulk -

Pros:

  1. Flash

  2. Super strong etb ability

  3. Psuedo-Haste for an extremely fast clock.

Cons:

  1. Requires an Instant themed deck

  2. Puts me solidly in blue and counterspells making red and black splash colors

  3. Is a well known entity and people know how to hate him out.

  4. Abrade


The Scorpion God -

Pros:

  1. Cheaper

  2. Has an amazing engine if you can untap with him

  3. Blocks well with everything while mana is open

  4. Recursive because he comes back to hand

Cons:

1.Requires tapping out on my turn

  1. Requires a lot of kill spells instead of counterspells

  2. Weak to noncreature decks

  3. Draw engine can be a little bit clunky.
