Geth's Grimoire Discussion
2 weeks ago
Hc_Clan definitely agree with Nekusar and he is going to be a sideboard to change things up if I want a different play style in that game. Dream Salvage is a wonderful card. Geth's Grimoire wow what a card. Drawing cards is always good, so definitely going to be going in my deck! Thank you for the suggestion!

I'm a fan of Nesting Dragon, I like how the tokens become stronger after a boardwipe. You've also reminded me that I need to put Dream Salvage in my deck. I do agree with some of the other comments about Nekusar. If you purely want to win with wheels, Nekusar is the best commander for it. But I'm a big fan of Crosis and like to see him taking the helm.
As far as suggestions, I'd highly recommend Geth's Grimoire. You can never have too much card draw.

I haven’t yet seen anyone in my playgroup make a discard theme work. And if you do, you gotta go all in on it.
Black discard decks in EDH usually try to abuse Waste Not. The problem with discard is that it usually is either 1: targeted at one player, not hindering the other player(s), or 2: simply being too weak for anyone to give a damn. Some decks even want to discard their key cards, so you might be helping them more than you are hurting them.
In short: I would prolly advise against building Discard. However if thats what you want to do, go ahead. Here’s how I would approach it:
Waste Not is crazy strong when it gets going. Sangromancer and Geth's Grimoire are your other payoffs, but they can’t turn into a win the way Waste Not does. You should also get all the black tutors you can afford to go find it.
The targeted discard spells are pretty sweet if there is a lot of combo in your local meta. Duress is the only good cheap one I can think of though.
Some decks are gonna try to abuse the fact that they can put their good cards from hand into their yard for juicy reanimation/recursion value. You want cards that deal with this as a result. Bojuka Bog + Relic of Progenitus + Faerie Macabre and so on.
Lastly, there have been some cruel and very strong discard spells over the years. Mind Twist is the best one I know for edh. However these are generally not very budget friendly. Maybe try Death Cloud

So, I don't know why I didn't think about this till now, but Mogis actually presents a problem with Xantcha. The same could be said of Tainted AEther. Here are some cards I think would be interesting:
Visions of Brutality, Vampiric Link, Treacherous Link, Disrupt Decorum, Rakdos Signet, Bazaar Trader, Uncaged Fury, Temur Battle Rage, Psychotic Fury, Latulla's Orders, Havoc Festival?, Vandalblast, Everlasting Torment, Geth's Grimoire, Dreadbore.

I'd run Blasphemous Act over Damnation, and possibly Personal Tutor as an additional tutoring source to find wheels. Chasm Skulker seems slow here compared to the rest of the deck, and would probably be my first cut.
Hope this helps! :)

Liliana of the Veil is usually considered the budgetless version of Necrogen mists, but it’s also a pretty big target. I’m not sure how competitive Geth's Grimoire is but drawing off everyone’s discard is always nice.
I’m also noticing Mike and Trike as a wincon. If you wanted a more on theme win (permanent destruction) maybe try The Gitrog Monster, with Dakmor Salvage and Skirge Familiar. And maybe incorporate some extra lands for turn spells like Exploration?
Tendershoot’s here for token-fodder, I’m guessing? You could also use Sadistic Hypnotist for more discards.
I’d also replace Zhur-ta Druid with Birds of Paradise

I hope this is all helpful for you! :)
Using red, you have access to many of the overlooked cards in the mental game of magic. Avarice Totem, Custody Battle and Fractured Loyalty can become game changers in and of themselves. Avarice Totem with Pithing Needle can be quite fun.
I think that Jinxed Choker deserves a spot here, and that you could consider some additional hidden gems such as Vampiric Spirit or Basilisk Collar in here with some of your "passive pingers" such as Harsh Mentor, Xantcha, Sleeper Agent or even Sleeper Agent herself, etc.
Some other great options would be cards that encourage your opponents to make bad decisions - I usually try to not beat the deck but the opponent in magic, so cards such as Pain's Reward and Choice of Damnations can be a house depending on how well you play the game and the opponent.
I would always include a Glacial Chasm with a way to fetch it.
I would confuse your opponent by being friendly with some cards such as Abyssal Persecutor and cards of the like.
You're not trying to help the other players win, you're owning your opponents without them realizing it.
You have access to Norin the Wary, that always sparks options...
You have access to political time bombs such as Impending Disaster being in Red.
No matter what you do, I would auto-include Claws of Gix, a Scroll Rack, and a Sensei's Divining Top, consider maybe some shadow cards - just type the word "Dauthi" into http://www.cardkingdom.com/ and see what comes up... that might lead to some ideas with equipment such as Explorer's Scope and/or Trepanation Blade (two cards that are incredibly underrated IMO)...
If you keep your dudes low in power, you could consider a Meekstone and an Icy Manipulator as a soft/old-school wall for yourself (though it would stop Xantcha from doing her work). If the Icy is there... there's always Winter Orb - who doesn't miss that?? :)
Lots of choices here...
Maybe stealing equipment would be a thing you'd enjoy... you know there's always "that guy" that runs "those cards" all the time... Red is all about that.
If you're feeling aggro-y, Filth + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth seem strong.
If you can get your hands on it, Word of Command fits the flavor of this deck well...
Maybe you could include a Wish Board with Burning Wish or Death Wish... in fact, you could keep the weird political theme going with a suicide life swap build with that black tree: Tree of Perdition and/or Soul Conduit.
I'm just spouting off ideas - I plan to make a deck with her when I get some free time. :)
Very cool start here and again, I hope all of this is helpful to you!
