Crux of Fate Discussion
5 days ago
Thanks for the comment!
Terastodon and Crux of Fate are very recent additions. I'm not really sure if deck needs second wrath besides Damnation. Toxic Deluge is clearly better than Crux, it's just matter of budget. Same goes for Assassin's Trophy. Terastodon is in the deck not as removal, but as late game alternative threat which you don't afraid to tap out with. I also love utility like blowing out Mana Crypt / Necropotence that is going to kill you.
I thought about adding something like Emrakul, the Promised End as late game threat, still thinking about it.
Probably if I'm running Terastodon I should run something like Animate Dead. Btw, Eldritch Evolution is really good in this deck if I run Terastodon and both drake/deadeye, that is a good thing to consider.
Forbidden Orchard is a bit ambitious. The deck is really trying to control everything, and it aggresively uses life as resource without any way to restore it, and dying to mediocre beats for 1/1 is not a impossible scenario.

Forbidden Orchard is good mana fixing and can help creature creatures for Reality Shift if you lose access to Beast Within. I would also recommend swapping Crux of Fate with Toxic Deluge - it's a much stronger wrath.
Terastodon seems really expensive here - Assassin's Trophy is a lot cheaper for the same kind of removal. Or at least add Eldritch Evolution as you can get it via Tasigur (side note, EE should be in the deck as it can also fetch Nezahal and Sphinx from Tas).

Minor alteration you might enjoy - Horde of Notions for a general - you can't tutor out cards from play, but it lets you run any changling for , and cast them from graveyard as well.
another odd option is Reaper King for destruction of permanents
odd "lords" that might fit well -
Bramblewood Paragon & the their tribal parallels - give a static bonus even after the card leaves
Drogskol Captain - another lord of the unreal, effectively. plus it steroids
Scion of Oona - see above, but shroud. can't target it, but has flash
Seshiro the Anointed - big buffs + card draw = win
Myr Galvanizer - untapping is amazing. do stuff more!
Pheres-Band Warchief - because tribal centaurs are apparently a thing
Unnatural Selection - because more messing with stuff is more better
Crux of Fate - because it is now viable in a non-dragon tribal
Goblin Chieftain - an alternitive to goblin king - not a fan of landwalk, personally. to circumstantial

hkhssweiss I will add Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh eventually, I believe he is very powerful and deserves a spot in the deck. I will not be adding Nicol Bolas, the Deceiver as I feel he is not powerful enough for 8 mana.
I do like all of your ramp suggestions and will use them if I feel the deck needs more mana-fixing/ramp.
Sweltering Suns and Cower in Fear are too weak to be good in this deck. Sadistic Sacrament is so cruel and so awesome! That card can single handedly take out an opponents chances of winning so I will definitely throw that card in at some point. Countersquall is an auto-include as it’s an on flavour Negate. I removed Slave of Bolas because I felt it was too much mana for the results it produced. Crux of Fate is definitely strong and I will consider it. The only problem with the card is if I come up against a deck with a large amount of dragons. Blood Reckoning will almost never stop the token decks from killing me so I decide not to run it. Imp's Mischief while on flavour, can easily be replaced with a copy of Redirect so that I don’t lose life. Great suggestions!

I feel like you will need to add in all the Nicol Bolas planeswalkers in here. I am very particular to Nicol Bolas, God-Pharoah and should be included in here asap LOL!
Also Nicol Bolas, the Deceiver would be on point with theme as well, since we are in Grixis colors. We need all the mana acceleration ramp, cards like Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet, Izzet Signet, Talisman of Dominance, and Talisman of Indulgence will help you in casting all the spells since Bolas loves doing things in style.
Hopefully that helps!

From first look some cards you might want to take out are: Battlegrace Angel, Dawnglare Invoker, Orim's Thunder, Seer's Sundial, Staff of Nin, Curse of the Nightly Hunt, Faith's Fetters, Warstorm Surge.
I know you dont want to spend that much money on this deck but here are some quick cards that you might want to add: Sower of Discord, Steel Hellkite, Bloodgift Demon, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Swords to Plowshares, Angelic Arbiter, Indulgent Tormentor, Utter End, Terminate, Chaos Warp, Unmake, Cataclysm, Quicksilver Amulet, Strionic Resonator, Blood Speaker, Rune-Scarred Demon, Sarkhan's Triumph, Armageddon, Bontu's Last Reckoning, Crux of Fate, Day of Judgment, Fumigate, Exotic Orchard, Battlefield Forge, Caves of Koilos, Relentless Assault, Angelic Skirmisher, Harvester of Souls, Rogue's Passage.
I think some of these cards are better options then what you have right now.
