Noctem on One Horse to Rule Them All

I think the only part I don't like about your deck is the use of Lost Legacy in the side. I would rather have a mix or one of the following:

Doomfall, Lay Bare the Heart and/or Transgress the Mind.

I ask myself, what non-artifact card do I really care about that I need to get rid of in the new standard meta? Frankly the answer is not much.

I think that i will modify the deck a bit:

Nekusar, the Mindrazer removed, in Galvanoth.

Blood Tyrant out, in Melek, Izzet Paragon.

Doomfall out, in Increasing Vengeance.

Whispering Madness out, in Talent of the Telepath

metallurgic summoning is still here, but i don't know if it's necessary. 30 instant and sorceries should be fine, or not?Saucealicious

Thank you! Sure!

Basically, just different board wipes depending on the deck, giving this decks mainboard a problem.

If an opposing aggro deck cast multiple 4/4 or stronger creatures, mainboard Bontu's Last Reckoning.

If an opposing aggro deck cast multiple 3/3 or weaker creatures, mainboard Sweltering Suns

If an opposing deck cast multiple planeswalkers, mainboard Hour of Devastation

If an opposing deck is Control, mainboard Doomfall

And the Chandra, Torch of Defiance in the sideboard has no real reasoning, she's just there(could add Blazing Volley against Hapatra decks).

I believe that the Eternalize ability sorta counters a basic control build and in adding the right board wipe aggro decks can also be countered but, best 2 out of 3 the listed mainboard should be used game 1.

ACDAMAN, those suggestions are good, other than cutting a land. I wouldn't cut a land for another spell. You want 26x lands because hitting your fourth land drop is very important to play Glimmer.

Here are my thoughts for the main deck (I lean towards more removal main deck because aggro such as Zombies, Mardu Vehicles and Monument decks can be bad matchups):

I like a hardy amount of each main deck creature removal and counterspells. In this case more counterspells because both Censor and Will can also act as draw and/or dig. These amounts allow me game one better chances to draw what I want in a variety of matchups. I can then games two and three better sideboard accordingly to the matchup.

I also like 4x Will, but 3x is fine. 4x Will is nice because it gives the best chance to curve Will into Glimmer into Devastation into Gearhulk.

For the sideboard:


I've omitted Doomfall even though I think it will be very good in Midrange and Ramp matchups, but there's just not room in the side for it.

Another approach to playtest is use more draw, Hieroglyphic Illumination. The thought is since you have more draw you can draw into more options faster. Illumination, Censor, Glimmer and Will make up a robust package of draw/dig. Using Illumination and Censor together to cycle since they only cost one mana to cycle, can give you more early game draw. Example:

  • 4x Glimmer
  • 3-4x Illumination
  • 3x Censor
  • 3x Will

Looks good, but I think you need more main deck removal, +1.

A 3x Abrade, 3x Harnessed Lightning, 2x Magma Spray with 1-2x more in the side, 2x Hour of Devastation with one more in the side, seems like a good versatile deck removal package. You want a removal spell in your opening hand and I don't think you're playing enough main deck removal. In my opinion Abrade is a more important main deck removal spell for Control than Harnessed because it can instantly kill Gearhulk, Heart of Kiran or Oketra's Monument. These three cards are a problem for Control and Abrade can reliably kill them much more than Harnessed.

Magma Spray is an important card to use especially in the sideboard because it can exile the resilient creatures who are hard for Control to deal with, Scrapheap Scrounger and Relentless Dead. Because of both Abrade and Harnessed you don't also need Fatal Push I would cut it for more Spray in the sideboard.

Consider using Supreme Will as a 4 of. The curve of Will into Glimmer seems really excellent for Control. Being able to turn three use Will to find Glimmer and then turn four use Glimmer to find Hour of Devastation or Gearhulk.

Some good sideboard options are 2x Dragonmaster Outcast, 2x Kefnet's Last Word, 2x Doomfall and 1x Summary Dismissal. Dragonmaster is quite good in Control mirrors and midrange matchups because removal is taken out and since he's only one mana you can protect him. Ramp is back thanks to Hour of Promise and Ulamog is a problem for Control. Both Last Word, Doomfall and Dismissal are good to combat Ulamog. Either exile him from your opponent's hand or in play or cast. Last Word can steal Ulamog for four mana.

Good luck with your deck.

I don't think 10 3drops is too many. Also Yahenni's Expertise is more effective. I did consider using Ruin Rat for more early blockers and grave yard hate. Maybe swap out a few Doomfall or Unburden?

Fatal Push? best removal in... almost any format

Abrade great against everything in the format.Maybe Doomfall.Torment of Hailfire is awesome.

I don't think Consign / Oblivion is good enough.Consider taking in some Torrential Gearhulk.

But brews are brews... Play whatever you think is fun

Nice deck, some good ideas here, +1

The energy strategy is kind of wasted, you don't have enough cards that make energy to sustain Glint-Sleeve Siphoner and use Harnessed Lightning. Adding Glimmer of Genius would help, but then you want Torrential Gearhulk because they're broken together. I recommend replacing Siphoner and Harnessed with Abrade and Supreme Will and dropping the energy strategy. The strong trifecta of Abrade, Will and Doomfall gives you a tons of options. As far as trying to make Grixis competitive these three cards are a great starting point.

Good luck with your deck.
