I don't get it...How does Blightsteel Colossus shuffle itself? I was under the impression that you needed one in your hand so you reveal that one and shuffle the other. For instance, say you have one on the field that gets killed, wouldn't you need to reveal a second one from your hand (since that is usually what reveal means) in order to get it shuffled?

seshiro_of_the_orochi: Thanks for the suggestion. I don't really want many, because they conflict a bit with my other 2 drops and doesn't really give me much, but it could be a good turn three play if I draw too many Blightsteel Colossuses.

Sgt.Pickles: I need the investigate for Shape Anew and there aren't really any other cheap options that work. Anthems could be good and I might try them at least in the sideboard, but I'm not sure if I really need to main deck them. I don't think that I really need to splash black for Lingering Souls, because it is a bit costly at 3 mana and tokens aren't my main wincon, and I don't think I really need Thoughtseize enough to splash for it either. If you did want to make an esper version of this however, Bitterblossom and Thoughtless could be great additions. Hopefully Dispels and Negates will be enough to stop Surgical Extractions. Worldspine Wurm would make a great budget option, but Blightsteel Colossus seems like it would usualy be better. Indestructible means that it is much harder to kill and it is also the only thing you can get with Shape Anew, so I want to have 2.

Thank you both for the feedback!

That was the question I had about Tolarian Academy - would production of another color just default to colorless (or universal) mana?

I know both those cards are banned... however this isn't a tournament deck. Blightsteel Colossus is a great option. Not sure what to do about the loss of the academy though, should I pull it to make it "legal". Would Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx work with the colorless symbols?

Sometimes I do, but I've tried to put some moderate ramp (as much as you can in Grixis anyway) to try and accelerate my mana as fast as I can. Sometimes I do have to resort to Mana Flare, but I try to avoid it unless I know I can keep a handle on my opponents. Another easy way to try and kind of cheat, is to use enchantments like Furnace of Rath and Dictate of the Twin Gods to make not only Vial Smasher deal more damage, but also the spells that I use to control the board or burn the other players. For me, I don't use Jhoira of the Ghitu, as I run too many X costs for her to be optimal. That being said, however; it's hard to fight a Blightsteel Colossus cast as first spell on upkeep lol.

herringtonr, In the dropdown box I have a small list of some cards I'm considering. Blightsteel Colossus and eldrazi titans are some good candidates. Thanks for the comment!

What are you going to be grabbing with Planar Bridge? I would recommend one of the Eldrazi titans or a card like Blightsteel Colossus.
