The deck does run better with energy and Aether Hub. Thank you Hyperalgialysis. Also thanks backinajiffy Essence Extraction is helpful. I'm not 100% sold on Crypt of the Eternals but I'm keeping it in for now.

I had several games were I just didn't get the needed artifacts to cast Indomitable Creativity. So, I completely revised the deck as a new Mardu version. I think both are about as effective, and fun in each there own way. Here is the link to that deck: Creative Mardu Jank in Ixalan

Thanks, backinajiffy, you are right about pre-6 damage.

Censor is a little tricky. We want to draw cards, but we also don't want to draw a creature. Scry based card advantage is much more helpful.

I'm going to try your and Hyperalgialysis's suggestions. Put in more Essence Extraction and maybe Censor as well as the Aether Hub and energy cards. I'll give Crypt of the Eternals a try as well, but I agree that the 2 mana cost is pretty limiting. I'll get back after some playtesting.

I understand. My original grixis deck draft had a lot of the cycle lands in it I found it to be too slow. I am no running more discard, so the deck is black splashing blue and red. Yours unfrotunately doesnt quite work the same way as mine, so it will be a little more troublesome. Crypt of the Eternals is ok, but I found that having to tap 2 mana to genrate a certain color was too mucj for my deck, it may help yours tho

If you are set on doing 5 colors it wouldn't be the worst idea to add Evolving Wilds, and Painted Bluffs maybe even Crypt of the Eternals. While these reduce speed they increase consistency. Good luck

AllClar The idea of Crypt of the Eternals is that it can still be used for colourless mana right off the bat. Would you recommend a few extra dual lands?

The main thing that I have a problem with in your current build is Crypt of the Eternals. Yes, you do gain a life upon enter, but in order to get mana from it, you need to pay a mana. That's a bit wasteful in standard.

No red so why have Crypt of the Eternals? Just replace with some Drowned Catacomb Coming in ixalan. Also a bit too focused on the zombie type. bringing the cmc quite a bit higher than your mana base would be happy with. 1/8 of your lands come in tapped, and Crypt of the Eternals costs one to get one R/U/B mana. Check up on the ixalan coming out, Siren Stormtamer will be good, and maybe the kitesail freebooter too. cheap casts, have flying, provide protection. not zombies first time around, but great targets for The Scarab God
