Love this grenzo more than the other +1 all of the way!

I think Gamble would do a lot of work!

+1 for stax, good puns, and Junding them out!

Could Gamble be worth it in this deck? If you fail, you run enough recursion to find it commonly!

Riftsweeper can be run if you are really are scared, but I think it is certainly worth the risk, like Gamble!

Magus of the Moon... Blood Moon... Imperial Recruiter... Gamble...

My 4 color (no red) Hermit Druid litterally dies if any Blood Moon effect is dropped.

You make me sad.

Onto more pressing matters, Ruination? ugh... I am glad I don't know you IRL, this deck would be brutal to go against.


Some suggestions would be Possibility Storm, Stolen Identity, Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip, and Outpost Siege. The first one is just good fun and chaos and OMYGOD Magus of the Moon got out from an Iron Myr... The other three are card advantage, with the first of them being chaos and card advantage.

Up to you on all of this, but I'll toss you a +1 for the deck and I certainly hope we never play together for my sake!

Hi UR2L8,

I've been happy with my Demonlord Belzenlok, I don't tutor him so don't see him that often, but as a 6/6 Flample draw, he is a permanent in my build now.

Demanding Dragon if he was a choose one, I would like him, the problem arises, they will only pay the 5 life when your really need to get a creature, and just not pay if they have unimportant creatures/tokens, or no creatures. So never will get their life when it makes a difference, and will never get a creature that makes a difference.

Can't see him displacing a Rakdos the Defiler, Reveillark or Thundermaw Hellkite.

Lately I've been missing Gamble as well, especially in the opening hand. I was thinking of Gamble tutor the Reanimate that way if it makes me discard an A/D/D I'm in nice shape, if it makes me discard the Reanimate means I'll have to pull Yawgmoth's Will or Animate Dead later. It could also replace Damnation, I haven't cast it in a while, but I like knowing when I need it I can tutor it, although maybe it should be a Merciless Eviction to give me some Modular options other than destroy/no regenerate. Faithless Looting is also out again, and I know I will get burned with a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker in hand again and need to put it back in.

I don't want to go down an A/D/D either because I worked my way back up to this amount, because I found myself, on occasion, having a Kaalia of the Vast swing without a free A/D/D and that is bad, need to limit that as much as possible. Some games I have too many A/D/D some games short. Difficult to balance.

Well, these discussions matter a lot.

Cromat may be a better commander than Mairsil, the Pretender at a Laboratory Maniac combo if the addition of green and white with support cards like Grand Abolisher, Silence, Abrupt Decay, Autumn's Veil, Nature's Claim, and Swords to Plowshares are good enough that you don't need a commander with minor benefits.

In that way, I think every 5 color commander should be Tier 2, as I can make any of them a decent list (or a hundred decent lists). No, they don't have to support a combo if their colors are powerful enough on their own.

On the other hand. I could run any random grixis commander, and build a list that though might be slightly worse than Kess, Dissident Mage, could make a very good deck using the shell of Grixis Twin. That deck might even be more powerful than Azami, Lady of Scrolls. Think about that. The fact that Karona, False God, with the list of Grixis Twin might be better than many tier 2 lists, yet is tier 5?

A Tier 5 list that is better than a tier 2 list, isn't a tier 5 list, yet at that point, the best decks should be the best decks, not the commanders at the helm of them. Think about stax decks, you can build a mono-red stax list that works (albeit not the best, but not bad or anything) and even use the commander of Zirilan of the Claw for a bit of removal if you cheat out one of the dragons that deals damage on ETB. That deck sure might whoop a Tier 3 list every time, with a mix of fast-paced stax, using Winter Orbs and Static Orbs, along with Sphere of Resistance and Thorn of Amethysts and some removal like Blasphemous Act, all the while setting up a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combo for the win. That deck doesn't sound bad, right? Well Zirilan of the Claw is tier 4, apparently they can't even compete against tier 1 lists, but against them, it can work, red has Gamble, Pyroblast/Red Elemental Blast, and all of the colorless stax options, along with more card draw than Hokori, Dust Drinker has, no, it isn't as powerful a commander if you don't include color, but if the color has more power, than the deck can, and the commander's deck is what the commander's power is derived from.

I understand this list will be making changes in the near future, I am excited for that, but until then, I still think most commanders (like 80% or so of them) can be made into a list that is competitive (Tier 1-2).

To be honest, I could probably write up a playable list for most commanders. I am probably going to do that soon.

Gamble is really good in the deck as well, esp on turn one when u have 7 in hand

for wizard or altar i would cut Relentless Assault, its good but it doesnt synergize well with the token strat

Purphoros, God of the Forge is an absolute beast in krenko, and theres an infinite Lightning Bolt combo that i dont see here, it involves Lightning Crafter + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker to create a token of crafter and champion kiki, then sac the token to an outlet like Skirk Prospector to bring kiki in untapped and get infinite damage, etb and mana!
