Grim Monolith Discussion

Amnesiac_ on Shattered Glass and Shattered Dreams

I don't know your meta but in mine speed is king. I would consider some more low drop acceleration. Things like Wall of Roots, Three Visits, Green Sun's Zenith + Dryad Arbor, Grim Monolith, Basalt Monolith, Lotus Cobra + fetch lands, and Wood Elves will all help you slam Bros earlier and can be good sac fodder later in the game. Early ramp also helps make opening hands a bit more consistent so mulligans don't happen as often and don't hurt as bad.

Artifact ramp for a mono black deck: Charcoal Diamond, Coldsteel Heart, Expedition Map, Thought Vessel, Mind Stone, Thran Dynamo, Hedron Archive, Basalt Monolith, Grim Monolith, Worn Powerstone, Solemn Simulacrum, Caged Sun, Gauntlet of Power, Commander's Sphere, Star Compass

Toxic Deluge is perfect as a wrath that can deal with indestructible creatures. There's also Black Sun's Zenith.

Not sure what the strategy is tho. I'd suggest Nim Deathmantle and Ashnod's Altar. Both are pretty useful on their own, and sometimes you can use them to combo (for example, with your Grave Titan to make infinite tokens).

Also question for you. Why the choice of Grim Monolith over Mana Vault?

Urza's Incubator, Cloud Key, Burgeoning, Exploration, Primal Vigor, Doubling Season, Grim Monolith, Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Sol Ring, Quicksilver Amulet, Haven of the Spirit Dragon, Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker, Sarkhan Unbroken, Warstorm Surge, Where Ancients Tread, Utvara Hellkite, Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund, Dragonlord's Servant, Dragonspeaker Shaman, Bladewing the Risen, Hellkite Overlord

While I won't say your deck NEEDS any of these cards, a lot of them are really fun/useful in a dragon deck like yours! Just thought I'd bring them into the spotlight as potential options :)

This deck is going to be put under changes in the near future, it will either become a general that is considered one of the more competitive mono blue commanders, Azami, Lady of Scrolls. Or I will be shifting this deck towards a Mass Polymorph deck.

Just placing these as lists of cards that I need/want to try out. The first one is just a list of cards that I wish to put into the deck to make it better no matter what route I take. (these will be cards that are going to be included very soon.)Sky Diamond, Whir of Invention, Snow-Covered Island, Coldsteel Heart, Buried Ruin, Chrome Mox, Dramatic reversal, Gush, Extraplanar Lens, Muddle the Mixture, Long-Term Plans, Frantic Search, Back to Basics, Merchant Scroll, Mystical Tutor.

This next list is the cards I would need to make it a Mass Polymorph deck. Mass Polymorph, Synthetic Destiny, Polymorph, Proteus Staff. Deadeye Navigator, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Blightsteel Colossus, Palinchron, Tidespout Tyrant

And lastly the last list is if i pushed it towards a Azami, Lady of Scrolls deck. /note for azami I will have to up the mana rock count by 5+ thus also including Paradox EngineMind Over Matter, Aphetto Alchemist, Cursecatcher, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Laboratory Maniac, Martyr of Frost, Sage of Epityr, Sea Scryer, Snapcaster Mage, Stonybrook Banneret, Trinket Mage, Vedalken AEthermage

This last list is cards that I wish to put into the deck when I clear up funds for this particular deck.Time Spiral, Scalding Tarn, Polluted Delta, Misty Rainforest, Flooded Strand, Cavern of Souls, Sensei's Divining Top, Mox Opal, Mox Diamond, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt, Grim Monolith, Mana Drain, Force of Will,
