Geth's Grimoire Discussion

+1 from me! Looks scary!

Heavy control theme for sure. Makes me reconsider my lack of Counterspells. I'm super jealous of your forces and fierce countermagic . What do you think about Dovin's Veto?

I saw Geth's Grimoire in another deck; and maybe 4 cards that caused opponents to discard. You have like 8+ so it's better here I assume

Incendiary Command and Khorvath's Fury I'll absolutely ponder on. 5cmc seems to be the going rate for discard->draw.

A pw to consider is Chandra, Flamecaller. She has options. Also Jeskai Ascendancy, Thrill of Possibility, Careful Study

I hope you'll take a minute to check my deck and tell me what you think! Have fun!

+1 from me! Nice build! I'm assembling these partners as well

I forgot about Psychosis Crawler. High potential for dmg there. Smothering Tithe I need more of. Never seen Memory Jar before. Same with Trained Pronghorn, neat.

Geth's Grimoire only has 4(?) cards in your deck that makes an opponent discard. Seems rowdy but situational.

What do you think about Frantic Search, Thrill of Possibility, Cathartic Reunion, etc? I see you're going with a gang of looting weenies. I had no idea there were so many! Haha

I hope you'll take a sec to check my deck! Have fun!

Thank you so much for the recommendations! I find Throne of the God-Pharaoh really amzing for this deck, I have it in my Krenko, the mob boss deck but I forgot absolutely. The Glint-Horn Buccaneer and Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip are really good too in synergy with all the wheel effects I have in mind for this deck.

I'm pondering about the mill strategy, I personally don't find it viable if the deck it's not fully focused on that theme. Altar of the Brood can be great to have another way to activate the Glint-Horn Buccaneer, or if I add Geth's Grimoire.

About Harvest Season that's the way to go, It's already in the deck, but I forgot to add the basic lands hahaha

About the other strategist you mentioned are really good, I don't know if I can implement all and make it functional. I have one main strategy: token creation. Two strategist to get value: ping and huge combat damage. I don't know if it is possible to mix yours' with mines'.

Thank you so much for engage with your comments!!

Another card to add to the "if you've got a couple of extra bucks" section: Geth's Grimoire.

The deck is in the 'help' section so I'll leave some ideas... I hope I'm not being presumptuous:

  1. You may want to consider running all the relevant Zendikar fetches; I see you're missing Marsh Flats, for example. They're expensive, but you're running Underground Sea so I'm assuming budget isn't really a problem. The reason I say you should run them is that a. they'll make your Jace, the Mind Sculptor's Brainstorm ability that much better, and b. they'll let you run ACTUAL Brainstorm effectively. I've found cantrips to be really effective in EDH, and I think in addition to Brainstorm you should run Ponder and Preordain in pretty much any blue deck.

  2. I think Murderous Rider is likely better than Hero's Downfall. It does tuck itself when it dies, which means reanimating it could be a little tricky, but having the extra value of being able to cast it as a creature seems a strict upgrade from just an instant.

  3. I'm surprised you aren't running Windfall -- it's a discard outlet and a draw spell all-in-one. I think you should run it; same goes for Fact or Fiction and Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip.

  4. If you do end up running Jace's Archivist from the 'Maybeboard,' consider running Geth's Grimoire, Waste Not and/or Bone Miser. I've always been a fan of the discard subtheme in EDH, and it goes pretty well with reanimation strategies. If you do consider running those cards, it's worth noting Windfall, Liliana of the Veil, Raven's Crime and Words of Waste are also really synergistic with them.

  5. I'm surprised you're not running Talisman of Dominance or Mana Vault. They both seem like good ramp for this deck.

  6. I don't know if you have a problem with her staxiness, but I think Narset, Parter of Veils is the Cat's PJs. Especially with Windfall.

  7. Lastly, I think Graveborn Muse has a spot in this deck. I know you said you aren't looking for zombie tribal, but she's at worst a Phyrexian Arena and you're tangentially making more zombies anyway. I feel like most of the time she'll draw you somewhere between 2 and 4 cards, which seems like it makes her worth it.

Right. That's all I got. Good luck!
