Dragon's Claw Discussion

Well for sideboard, definitely something to deal with eldrazi and other big threats, like Roast, Dismember and Terminate (which if I'm gonna be honest should be in the main board). Definitely hand hate such as Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, Duress, Distress or Despise. Some graveyard hate like Grafdigger's Cage, Relic of Progenitus, Leyline of the Void, Nihil Spellbomb, Crypt Incursion and plenty more that I can't remember at the moment. Against Burn, the only thing I can think of off the top of my head would probably be Dragon's Claw. Against combo decks Surgical Extraction or Slaughter Games. Finally against something like Tron or B/W Control you have options like Stone Rain, Molten Rain or Rain of Tears.

I'm unsure what your local playgroup or meta is like, but these are some fine options to help board in against whatever match-ups you face. Good luck!

I'm glad to hear you still have faith in grixis and magic in general. The new list looks super fun.

On your comment about the security you feel like you get from Countersquall, that's the same reason I play my Dispel in the mainboard, but I can't afford to hold up 2 mana and the main cards I care about are instants.

In your sideboard I think the Dragon's Claws should be Collective Brutality. It fuels delve, doesn't die to Destructive Revelry, and still wins burn. It's useful against non-burn decks too.

Oops, it had totally went WAY over my head that you weren't playing white!!! Vendilion Clique doesn't need a playset, rather you can get 1 or 2. This card is a lifesaver, trust me! Other burn hate cards include Dragon's Claw, Flashfreeze and counterspells. You beat burn by lifegain in-case you aren't able to counter Skullcrack. Also, with grixis/jund deathshadow dominating the format right now, some hard removal would be good and Doom Blade doesn't work against it.

Talonisnthavingit on May I use artifacts in ...

I'm making a mono-black deck that involves life gain. I was wondering if I could use cards like Angel's Feather and Dragon's Claw in it as well as Demon's Horn to gain life from different spell colors?

Dragon's Claw is merely an artifact, thankfully, so it bypasses my creature restriction :).

i would remove the Dragon's Claw from your sideboard for Bile Blight or Dismember

Kiln Fiend is a surprisingly powerful card if you're casting a lot of spells, +3 damage every instant/sorcery is no joke. Could sideboard this if you're playing against something slow.

Other sideboard options include Blood Moon since you're playing mono red, Leyline of Punishment if your meta is lifegain heavy

Dragon's Claw for against burn, Molten Rain and Smash to Smithereens are options for artifact heavy matchups

Just some ideas, I'm sure there's some other cards out there but being mono red does limit some of your options
