Ceremonious Rejection Discussion
1 day ago
Poaralion Thank you for your feedback. I toyed with the idea of Chart a Course, but did not like the 2 for 2. Still toying with it. Your suggestion of Pull from Tomorrow as a good one. With the mana ramp, from the artifacts, it could be quite strong. Admiral's Order is in the sideboard for an answer to blue control during my second main phase. Which would be an ideal time to cast spells because of the mana ramp artifact's triggers. ie: Treasure tokens and the transformed Lotus-esqe land. Ceremonious Rejection would be a cheap answer to the the many powerful and key artifacts to an opponent's deck. (I am tired at the time of this response. I hope I made sense.) Thank you again for taking time to give me your feedback!

apohl13 the list never got past testing so I never made one. If I was gonna build one I'd probably start with Ceremonious Rejection, Damping Sphere, some grave yard gate, maybe more board wipes? Idk it would just take some tuning to your metta

Dumgoldfish124 - Tidings is also sorcery speed, and I'd rather not use up an entire turn drawing cards. I'd rather keep mana open so I can take the Opportunity on their endstep to draw. Worth the 1 extra mana IMO.
As for the situational counterspells like Disdainful Stroke and Ceremonious Rejection, they're just too narrow for my liking, and I like having as versatile of a deck as possible. Plus if need be, I could always just Dissolve any big bad boys they try and cast. Of course this is just my personal preference, and if your meta is full of Eldrazi/Tron, stuff like Ceremonious Rejection would be great.
As for Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, I would definitely have him in the sideboard, but I am trying to keep all cards under $1, just for bragging rights. He would definitely be worth the investment otherwise, especially if you're in a control heavy meta. Same for Nezahal, Primal Tide instead of Inkwell Leviathan. This of course is my version of the deck, and not everyone is as picky as me, so feel free to try whatever you think would work better :)

LumpyMilk I forgot to say this earlier, but Tidings is a cheaper (mana wise) Opportunity. Also, Ceremonious Rejection and Disdainful Stroke could be good sideboards against Eldrazi or something. Finally, even though he is expensive to buy, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir is awesome against other control decks.

So on a whim I tried
Played a match again GB Tron and Ad Naus and won both. Not a flawless victory by any means, but I still felt relatively in control both matches.
And holy cow is Monastery Mentor explosive.
I want to add Logic Knot but I feel going down to 1 or none on the Delve top end makes me to threat-liight in an already threat-light deck. Will switch to Tasigur, the Golden Fang though. Maybe switch the top end with Seeker of the Way or Niblis of Frost

Thank you for the suggestions. Geist of Saint Traft doesn't work because the combo requires an attacker attacking alone.
I'm not the best pilot, but I'm getting better playing this deck and its fun. Ensnaring Bridge has been brutal. Its been pretty amazing how well this deck does against RDW and its variants however.
I will test it out with 22 lands vs. 24. It is rare that the Ceremonious Rejection isn't a useful card so far.

I've been testing against Tron a bit more and it's still a struggle post-board even with 4 Ceremonious Rejection. Rejection is amazing, but Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger is a very difficult card to beat. And because of Sanctum of Ugin, they have a lot of ways to find Ulamog. My current approach of trying to counter everything they play after they get Tron online isn't really working. I could try Fulminator Mage or more Field of Ruin or Molten Rain, but I've never found land destruction to fast enough to matter. And Surgical Extraction doesn't seem reliable enough.

hey man, took a while to get back to this.
i will say that i have very little experience with playing actual Grixis Delver. But the list looks extremely solid. All the changes i would make to my list if i wanted to shift towards tempo are manifested here.
concerning the sideboard, I have questions: 1) do the 4 Ceremonious Rejection win you the games where you need them? (tron, eldrazi). because you dont need them to beat lantern and affinity.
On a sidenote, i went 5-1 in a little paper tourney yesterday. beat skred, affinity, Abzan Company, Storm, Mardu Pyromancer, lost to Ad Nauseam. Things are looking up :)
