Codex Shredder Discussion

Maybe add in Codex Shredder or Ghoulcaller's Bell? That way you could send stuff to the top and then get rid of it forever. Cool deck!

It's a really inefficient way to remove creatures, puttingthem on top of library, and then milling them. First, most of the cards then send a creature to top of library have higher casting cost than removal spells. I guess it's to avoid prison decks, that keep making you draw the same, useless card over and over.

Second, if you don't leave the card on top of the library, you might as well just have killed it from the start.

Third, it's a pretty poor lock, since you can't stop your opponent drawing and playing a new creature. Unless you play Lantern of Insight... and a few more mill artifacts like Codex Shredder to get rid of really dangerous cards from the top of library... and maybe Ensnaring Bridge to stop attackers.

Wurmlover on Grindclock Prison Deck Suggestions?

props for brewing, but the grindclock is about the most inefficient way to get rid of creatures. it's also just a pretty bad card in general. it's a worse Sphinx's Tutelage. quite honestly I would look into using things like Codex Shredder and Ghoulcaller's Bell in a deck like this. they're way more efficient.

WalkingIllusion The infect stuff was based on the idea that I can use recurrsion to keep using them to drop infect counters on people and the creatures could just walk in. But I did pull all but Inkmoth nexus (because I can use it with hatred to instakill a player if needed) and a Phyrexian Juggernaut (which would work sweet with Blade of Selves and the Mirage Mirror to take out multiple people at once). Blightsteel Colossus is listed but I'm actually running the Darksteel Colossus instead because Blightsteel colossus is kinda boring to play. I may go back to an infect version but I'm liking the direction this is going now. As for your counterspells suggestion, I need to decide if I'm going with cheap CMC counters or some of the bigger ones.

jpsuchecki So Skeleton Shard is a good idea - need to fig out what to replace. Buried Ruin will go in and replace another land - I also have Academy Ruins which is sweet, but more ways to pull from my graveyard gives me more of an excuse to run Codex Shredder ;) Command Tower - not sure how I didn't add that. And probably Command Beacon too since Vela isn't cheap to cast. Rhystic Study... I.. want to add it... but i always want to add it... but "didja pay yer 1?? didja pay yer 1??" really starts to annoy my local group ;)

Ledian Hmm. I think i may have Steel Overseer. I do agree there are better options than Seer's Lantern, and I think I will add Voltaic Key.

Thanks, y'all!

How about Sands of Delirium, Thought Dissector or any other Millstone style effect? Codex Shredder has the recursion possibility also. Mindcrank, Mesmeric Orb, Trepanation Blade, and Sword of Body and Mind don't cost lots of Mana to keep using repeatedly.

Perpetual Timepiece is an interesting one, although just shuffling the cards in doesnt quite do what I want. A similar card that could be a consideration is Codex Shredder, although the recursion is quite pricy. But being able to stock our graveyard every turn is super nice, and it plays amazingly with Sensei's Divining Top. Ill have to think on it!

Ad Nauseam if I can get rid of some expensive wipes is a fantastic idea. Im still on the fence about the sideboard idea but I will almost certainly make this change if I move forward with that idea in mind!

Thanks for the comments! I appreciate the chance to discuss the deck, which I put a lot of time into!

Bchong on Breya Eggs

You are missing:

Ad Nauseam basically one of the best cards in EDH in your case you can draw about 20 cards so you win...All of the talisman mana rocks and Mind Stone

Helm of Awakening

Notion Thief it can help interact with the opponent and it will be able to combo with your wheels and it will fight past a lot of enchantments like Mystic Remora and Rhystic Study

Sensei's Divining Top it is another egg and it has added benefits

Disciple of the Vault

Paradox Engine

Winds of Change

You should take out:

Nevinyrral's Disk to expensive just use regular removal

Exsanguinate there are better wincons like Grapeshot Brain Freeze

Dispeller's Capsule Executioner's Capsule These aren't strong enough...just use Fragmentize

Sword combo... it isn't strong enough and it doesn't win you the game immediately

Time Sieve because it is unlikely for you to actually have 5 expendable artifacts on the board and not already win with Krark-Clan Ironworks

I think the only thing you can do after my suggestions is to try and dilute your deck with interaction. And try to hit a balance between it and your eggs. Cards like Blind Obedience or generally any stax pieces because it affects everyone else more than it should effect you. I was able to fit in 13 pieces of interaction and only have/need 5 "true" eggs to win. One of the strongest bits of interaction that works surprisingly well in a eggs deck is Counterbalance. This is because the more comptative you get the more concentrated in the 1,2,3 CMC you get and the more effective Counterbalance gets...your eggs can draw you cards to change the top card and if you get more self mill then it can become better. In addition, I think that a Scroll Rack will really help out your deck... it also combos with Counterbalance.

Some more wincons...

Blind Obedience with the extortWindfall kill everyone at the same time...this is when all else has failedIsochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal and then play breya as many times as neededParadox Engine it will let you do any number of thingsAny number of random Codex Shredder wins

PS I think you are investing to heavily into the firebrand/curiosity combo. And you can probably drop down a couple lands and lose one of your open the vaults effects.
