Geth's Grimoire Discussion

gdm1989 on yer a wizard, zombie

ANd I bring more gifts for you to look at I used to run a discard deck back when I was into modern:P The Rack, Shrieking Affliction, Fate Unraveler Insidious Dreams, Archfiend of Ifnir, Magus of the Jar, Nin, the Pain Artist, Blue Sun's Zenith, Geth's Grimoire (If I was into izzet I would run this)

Now this may cost you a pretty penny but The Locust God

butthurt_qrow - I was testing other stuff in place of Teferi's Puzzle Box and I have found that I miss that card a lot, so it will definitely be getting added back into the list. Also Whip of Erebos is a neat bit of sustain that I hadn't thought of before, so thank you I will see if I can include it.

goblinguiderevealpls - Memory Jar is incredibly strong, I'm honestly not quite sure why it has taken me so long to look for ways to get it into the list. I probably forget it exists any time I go to edit things. As for Notion Thief, I think it is extremely strong for lists looking to combo off very hard with things like Mind Over Matter + Temple Bell , but I am trying to keep this list more semi-competitive because of the audience I am playing with most of the time. This means I am probably running less combo potential. This leads to the next couple of cards, Dream Halls and Mind Over Matter. Dream Halls may make the list, but I will probably refrain from running Mind Over Matter for the time being simply because while I want the deck to be able to win, I don't want to have every game run the same, ending with me going infinite. Necropotence is probably a card I will find the space for as well. Phyrexian Arena and Geth's Grimoire are also cards on my radar that will find space, I'm almost positive. Commit / Memory is another card I have been looking at, and I guess I never got around to putting it in the maybeboard while I figured out what I was going to cut for it. I like Deadly Tempest a lot, didn't even know that card existed. Finally, regarding the Pact of Negation suggestion from Delta-117, yes, I know the card is great, but I also am not sure that I want to spend that large of a chunk of my budget for upgrades to this deck on it just yet. Long term, yes the card gets in here, currently, it's probably going to need to sit on the bench.

hey, I have a competitive nekusar primerand ive been playing him since printing so nearly 5 years now,

obviously my list is budgetless but it might help you get some budget ideas, some i dont see would be:

Memory Jar and Notion Thief are some of his best cards.

memory jar can easily be copied to exile the first jars hand of cards, all while discarding them to the wheel engines you're also missing, Dream Halls and Mind Over Matter its also a cheap, easily casted wheel

notion thief may negate the draw damage, but after a single wheel youve drawn more cards than a consecrated sphinx and can damnation into wheeling out

you also run a bit too many creatures for the amount of board wipes you run, and the upkeep ones are rather slow and easily dealt with

you also need a lot more draw engines as backup in case you cant wheel to loot more cards

Teferi's Puzzle Box may seem bad, but with Notion Thief it forces your opponent to bottomdeck their hand and draw 0-1 cards while you draw the rest

Necropotence no reason you shouldn't run this if you have Anvil of Bogardan, it negates the downside and allows you to draw enough cards to win as soon as turn 4 if you cast anvil turn 2 and potence 3 exiling 1-39 cards

other backup draw engines (self only, howling mine just gives opponents card advantage.) besides potence i dont see are Mystic Remora, Phyrexian Arena, Geth's Grimoire, Dark Tutelage, and, more importantly the game-winning combo wheel engines, Dream Halls and Mind Over Matter

also Memory is a great new wheel with a counterspell/bounce to boot!

overall id suggest running much less creatures and cut the walkers, as the planeswalkers are very low impact and you have very few ways to block them getting stomped, ive even ran megajace and dack and found them less than useful, i only run Tezzeret the Seeker for the artifact ramp/tutor, but he isn't budget friendly of course :(

I would add even more creature hate such as Evacuation, Rakdos Charm,Deadly Tempest, Incite Rebellion, AEtherize, Cryptic Command

anyways, +1 for playing the best damn commander there is

check out my primer and see if you get any ideas from the budget cards or combo descriptions! if it helps feel free to "like" it, and hope my suggestions were of help

4 life

may your wheel be done

Might want to consider putting in Geth's Grimoire for free card draw every turn with Nath.

Feptoid, Nath in no way is a "Casual" commander for the most part. He is one of those seen by people as a anti-combo deck. Because of this, combo players start hating on him quickily. Geth's Grimoire is amazing for the deck, I run it and personally love it. But Cards in my deck, you can flip around and actually turn it into a casual deck as well. Budget and effective with the same archetype. Discard/Stax

I aim for playing in a mostly casual environment, Im hardly what one would call a competitive person. I have been looking into adding Bottomless Pit and Necrogen Mists for a while, but I just havnt gotten around to it as I've been building up another deck of mine lately. I will be adding a Geth's Grimoire when I get around to obtaining it from my friend in the near future.

Thanks for the suggestions man!
