Deceiver Exarch Discussion

I mean, not necessarily lol
it's not relevant anymore, but when Splinter Twin was still a thing, playing Coldsteel heart meant that you can kill their Deceiver Exarch after they flash it in at your EOT and attempt to combo off during turn 4, without coldsteel heart you have no way to kill it if they are on the play.

Hey dude, huge fan of the deck! Saw it on reddit, i really love the high tide package as well.
I would have to agree with Silber here, why not sub out Lotus Petal for Mox Diamond? I also think Wood Elves looks a bit weak here, maybe swap it out for Gamble. I understand it gives you a spot on the curve for Birthing Pod, but I'd rather have a Deceiver Exarch or Eternal Witness or recruiter 9.9/10 times. If you need ramp with GSZ, you have other options as well, even if they dont net you mana that turn.
I'm also not huge on Treasure Cruise. I mean its amazing, but does this really want to have to exile your gy and tap out for 3 cards? I like Dig Through Time a lot more (i see its included already), just because its an instant and gives you mana to interact on your opps' turns. Cruise is good, but in my experience, it can be challenging to fill up that graveyard enough. What do you think of Crop Rotation in here? boseiju seems really good with your big spells, and even cavern of souls could be decent. It might be nice to tutor up that protection.
Anyways, huge fan of the deck! I play rafiq in cedh, so its nice to see someone else with a tier 2 general trying to rep it out there. I really think we have the stuff it takes to compete, theres just not a lot of people who are still working on midrange decks like this in the format.

Looks good! Here are a couple catagories of cards I think you need more of though.
Board wipes: Sometimes the game gets out of hand and you just need a reset button to take care of the scary things your opponents are doing. I usually like 2-3 in my decks. Martial Coup also fits your token theme.
Creature removal: In almost every edh game you play, your opponents are going to cast creatures you need to get off the board, and fast.
the combo piece you are missing is Intruder Alarm. (it's also good by itself with your commander since you can untap everything at will if you need to)
I don't think Midnight Guard is a good card by itself like alarm is, but that goes infinite too.
Presence of Gond+ Sliver Queen+Intruder Alarm+ creatures that tap for a total of 2 mana also do it. ( if you add more creatures that tap for mana and can generate excess mana this way you create infinite mana in addition to infinite tokens)

Deadeye Navigator on flickers creatures, so it won't work with Gilded Lotus. The article said you'd flicker Deceiver Exarch or Pestermite to untap the lotus, and neither of those cards are in your deck.
Peregrine Drake is also not modern legal. It was printed in Urza's Saga, which is too old to be modern legal, as everything legal in modern must have at least one printing in a set in Eighth Edition or later, which drake does not.

Given that you're Grixis, I'd suggest looking up Doomsday as well, but I don't know the black part of the pie as well... Hope this helps!

A friend of mine runs a Surrak deck that is basically ETB goodness, stuff like Acidic Slime, AEther Adept, Man-o'-War, Deceiver Exarch, Reclamation Sage, stuff like them. With Surrak making all your creatures uncounterable they always go off, throw in a butt ton of ramp and some big bombs, my friend uses Kozilek, Butcher of Truth as his nuke, and man does it scare me when he hits the field, and bingo, opponent is squashed. Usually Surrak tends to run a lot of creatures, and this seems a bit light (I only really have experience with Surrak from the times my friend pulls him out, but he loves it and pumped a lot of work into it so I think I have a fair idea of his version at least)

I like the concept. Have you considered making the deck a bit more combo-centered?
I'll try and give more suggestions in the future. Hope the ones above help.
