Act of Treason Discussion
13 hours ago
@StopShot is right about Homeward Path and Humble Defector. The Humble Defector stays tapped as he's passed from player to player. He only becomes untapped at the beginning of a turn or if an ability makes it so
Also, even if he does become untapped; he does not have haste. Two cards to reference would be Control Magic and Act of Treason. Notice how the red card specifically mentions untapping and granting haste. A creature which is stolen via Control Magic or taken back with Homeward Path cannot attack or utilize it's abilities the turn it comes under your control
Anywho, as to the original question, have you included Tymna the Weaver in the deck? She has a rare ability for orzhov creatures
Also, I use Isochron Scepter and Tainted Pact as an engine in one of my decks. Neither card is specifically in the deck to be used with the other, but when they are paired together it's music to my ears. I wouldn't suggest running Isochron Scepter unless you have 10-15+ relevant instants to use with it. Nobody likes dead draws
Above all, have fun!

Have you considered running Birthing Pod for the additional sac outlet? My deck also runs the Avenger of Zendikar and Craterhoof Behemoth combo just to win if your opponents are creature light. Eldritch Evolution is also a sweet card to get to this combo as well.
I've also cut down on the majority of the Act of Treason (and the like) spells just because I feel Yasova provides enough on her own.

MoGoose831 Appreciate it man! Thanks for breaking down the Metalwork Colossus math for me... I'll definatly keep an eye on my artifacts and may pick it up later! And I suppose Sneak Attack will always be there too.
TheHamster Blood Lust seems like a not quite as good +X/+0 effect, and I've been phasing those out recently anyway. And yeah, you've been watching this deck for a while now! I believe you were my first commenter actually! It's been quite a journey. And I completely forgot about Martyr's Bond! I'll take another good luck at it and try to find the money and a slot in the 99 for it! Thanks again friend!
PartyJ Thanks for responding! Adarkar Valkyrie is good, especially for stealing my opponents' creatures, but isn't as good for most of my creatures, who would die again at end of turn. Used to have more Act of Treason and they'll continue to float in and out of the side/maybeboard. Archangel Avacyn Flip is cool. Quick question: can I flash her in at the end of my untap step? Is that a thing? I was so excited when I saw Teferi's Protection spoiled! Amazing card but not a $25 I need to spend on Brion haha! Thanks for your help!
Thanks for coming friend! Rings of Brighthearth is too expensive but perhaps Thousand-Year Elixir will go in! I agree it'd be the perfect 3-drop before Brion. Grafted Exoskeleton is.... was... not sure why I took it out. Haha! It may definitely find it's way back in though! Thanks a ton!
Zimmers_0 Thanks for responding! I've responded to both of those previously but they'll both stay sideboard staples for now. The Act of Treason effects are usually what I cut first to test new stuff. Thanks again!
Casey4321 I admire your humility! I've covered my reasoning Act of Treason effects well enough I think haha! Moltensteel Dragon I never really cared for but Magewright Stone I might pick up. Thanks again friend!
One last THANK YOU to all who comment/upvote! You guys are the best!

I have a similar deck using Kresh the Bloodbraided. I normally just play casual so I don't know how competitive these will be. I love utilizing cards like Act of Treason, Limits of Solidarity, or even better Kari Zev's Expertise to use my opponents creatures for my sacrificing needs. Gain control then use a sac engine like Bontu the Glorified to get rid of their stuff while making my board state better.
I also utilize Aid from the Cowl a ton in that deck and it might be helpful for you as well.
+1 from me for a great start!

Act of Treason Traitorous Instinct Bone Splinters Polymorph Fiery Conclusion Vampiric Rites Altar's Reap Stalking Vengeance Bazaar Trader the steal a creature and sac them way to play has lost of red and blue ways to borrow things and there are lots of black and red ways to sac things. I like Bazaar Trader cause you can keep what you take, are you trying to make this the theme?

I like it. If you want to go true "steal your stuff" I would suggest finding a way to add in stuff like Praetor's Grasp, Bribery, Acquire, Treachery, Mind Control, Control Magic, Domestication, Corrupted Conscience, and Fool's Demise. Before I made my grixis deck I was going to go Grixis steal your stuff so I do have some thoughts. Plus cards like Act of Treason which you can attack with thier creature, then sacrifice them to Ashnod's Altar which could trigger Dictate of Erebos (or Grave Pact).
Any reason Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker isn't in here? All Grixis decks can use him haha.

So I've had a look through and I've committed to the following;
I am going to have a look through and get rid of some of the higher powered cards, the demons, legendary creatures etc and hopefully that'll make it better to play.I already have Act of Treason so i'll put those in too which should help with the destroying of creatures
