Grim Discovery Discussion

NensouHiebara on With the Night King's power, Death has no meaning

Ever thought of using Grim Discovery as another way to grab Command Beacon out of the graveyard?

Hi Venom_Pistachio, thanks for the comments on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

Here are some potential cuts:

Grim Discovery | Return to the battlefield is better, skips the Kaalia of the Vast requirement

Ruthless Ripper | He's too small, and not going to do much for you

Skyblinder Staff | Not necessary

Vessel of Endless Rest | Planning to infinite combo this?

Congregate | Rarely going to be too valuable / too situational

Boros Guildmage | Use a Dragon Tempest or something, creatures too easy to remove, and mana sponges

One or a couple of these should get you Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker in there.

Some other suggestions:

Angel of Despair destroys a permanent for about $3, good with Panharmonicon as well.

Swiftfoot Boots better way to get haste (and hexproof) for equip 1, better than Boros Guildmage

Anguished Unmaking is a great permanent exile, think Purphoros, God of the Forge or along that lines

Bloodgift Demon gives you an extra draw each turn for under $1

Zealous Conscripts can go infinite with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker (same as Restoration Angel), for about 50 cents

Hope that helps!

One awkward thing about having child as your commander is that in order to blow up the world, you need to have it go to the graveyard instead of the command zone. You don't have many ways of putting child back into the command zone limiting how often you can use it as board wipe. One of the ways i do it in my deck is Pharika, God of Affliction. When child changes zones from graveyard to exile using pharika's ability, you can put it back into the command zone where it can be recast. Since pharika is indestructible, it will stick around after everything is nuked for you to do it again later. It's also nice to have graveyard hate for whatever graveyard shenanigans your opponents are up to. Relic of Progenitus does the same thing, you can exile your commander from your graveyard with the world destruction trigger on the stack to put it back into the commnad zone, then everything explodes. It's a lot easier to hold up that having but it's a 1 shot use as child will destroy it anyways. Grim Discovery can put child and one of your dead manlands back into your hand.

You might be able to get some use out of Scapeshift. In my child deck I use it to grab Maze's End and all the gates, untap hem using Amulet of Vigor and then activate maze and win on the spot. I don't think you have enough slots for all 11 of those lands but even still, exchanging the ones you have for the needed manlands in your deck still might be worth it. You can get even more value using your crucible, life from the loam, Splendid Reclamation, etc. Bring to Light can find it or a lot of other good spells from your deck.

Spook9MM. OK to be frank i didnt even knew this card existed and my respone is yep it might make the cut, though most ofthe time that token is less of a concern. it does impact the board but exiling the land is still a problem that i have no solution to. Grim Discovery does however favor more the control styled gameplay of legacy and it does offer a surprise combo right off the blue and it could be used against land destruction or to retrieve Thespian's Stage. Great suggestion nevertheless

Grim Discovery... on the off chance they manage to exile Marit Lage token and you have Depths and/or Hexmage in graveyard

You could take out Eternal Thirst and Grim Discovery.

Mindwrack Demon I would think he will kill you before you make any use of him, Delirium isn't too easy to get with this deck.

Elusive Tormentor  Flip is a bad card. There's nothing else to be said here :P

You will probably never have enough creatures to make use of Voldaren Pariah  Flip

Grim Discovery isn't too good considering you run only a few creatures.

Sorry I'm in a hurry atm, g2g. Personally I'd try to cut the overall mana cost of the deck a little.
