Flayer of the Hatebound Discussion

Pal00ka on Thrax and Friends

I love Thrax, tho never built him, but an idea I had was to combine persist (Glen Elendra Archmage) and undying (Flayer of the Hatebound) with symmetrical sacrifice spells like Barter in Blood. Not sure how good it would be in practice but a different way to build him for sure.

In your build, I do not really see a theme. Like Neheb, the Eternal- why? You have maybe 3 spells that burn opponents. It seems you are counting on combat damage but then your curve is so high (and all over the place) that I cannot see him doing much work most times.

Your deck has an average of nearly CMC5, which is...high, really high. I'd consider cutting a lot of your CMC6+ spells and add more CMC1-3 that are card advantage (ex. Night's Whisper, ramp (ex. Wayfarer's Bauble), or interaction (ex. Chaos Warp).

I'd be happy to re-look once you've made some changes!

Hi there SamsWrath I have some suggestions since I also have a deck based around Grenzo, however I don't want to suggest too much since its clear you have given a lot of thought to how you want your deck to play.

  • Flayer of the Hatebound is one of the best combo cards with Grenzo since everything he summons has to go through the grave first
  • Lightning Crafter would be better than Spikeshot Elder here since he can form an infinite damage loop with Kiki-Jiki by championing him, then once you tap the token and sacrifice it Kiki-Jiki will come back fresh for another go
If you want more ideas for combos and to see what other directions your deck could be taken please take a look at mine I'd love to hear some suggestions!

Hey, interesting deck. I don't play much mono red so there isn't much I can help with except for a card I think could help you, specially in regards to triggers, Rite of the Raging Storm. The elementals entering the battlefield will trigger Warstorm Surge, Impact Tremors, Flayer of the Hatebound, etc... And when they die at the end of turn they will also trigger Goblin Sharpshooter, Vicious Shadows, Outpost Siege, etc... Plus it is one extra attacker you have to inflict some more damage in combat and also generate more mana with Neheb, the Eternal. Good luck, hope the decks works well!

I'm assuming your goal is to combo off with Marisil ASAP, so here's my suggestions:

  1. Focus on whatever combo is quickest to help streamline your strategy. Combo decks work best when they have one specific, achievable goal.

  2. Drop high CMC cards like Prismatic Geoscope or Flayer of the Hatebound and add in more reliable, low CMC cards.

  3. I'd add Lightning Greaves to help protect Marisil.

  4. Bounce spells like Capsize and Chain of Vapor to help deal with annoying permanents.

  5. Card draw like Mystic Remora, Frantic Search, Thirst for Knowledge, Preordain, Ponder, Necropotence, Phyrexian Arena, etc.

  6. More mana rocks will help you get off to a faster start as well Sol Ring, Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Prismatic Lens, Dimir Signet and Izzet Signet should all be here. If you run more mana rocks you can cut your land count down to 32-33 with no problems.

These are the most obvious ways I can see to improve your deck. Hopefully some of those ideas help!

I am currently running Cytoplast Manipulator and Flayer of the Hatebound. As for Unspeakable Symbol, I need to test it out a bit more extensively. In my experience it tends to drain a bit too quickly. If my meta weren't as aggressive, I might consider it. As for Akroma, I do like the synergy, but it doesn't synergize much with the deck beyond that cheap flip.

those effects are probably fine in here, but I actually don't sacrifice that many creatures in this deck. I mostly just sac a really big one a couple times, which is why I preferred effects like Flayer of the Hatebound and Warstorm Surge.

Trepsik on Grenzo - Flip It or Whiff It

I love it! I play a Grenzo tribal deck that is sorely in need of a revamp and as much as it pains me to kill the tribal aspect of it I'll be taking a page from your book and going the slot machine creature heavy with a focus on ETB effects route.

Have you considered Flayer of the Hatebound ? Granted he has a 4 power but his ability plays REAL nice with Grenzo's

I'm looking to experiment with the various Arcbound artifact creatures as well. Thornbite Staff Goblin Welder and a few of them could lead to some shenanigans.
