antacidbrn on Grindclock Prison Deck Suggestions?

5 days ago

I am not sure that Grindclock is going to be protected long enough against aggro build that just keep coming. Even if this deck catches someone by surprise, I see a lot of Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek decks that would just pluck this put of your hand and leave you with no win con.

I only used the clock in an EDH Mill deck and with Duskmantle Guildmage combo, but could see it being a tough sell in the Whisk and Oust build.

TUMTUM on Grindclock Prison Deck Suggestions?

So while trying to find a super budget deck to play. I came across the idea for a prison deck. Grindclock is an underplayed rare, so I decided to make a deck around it. The plan is to cantrip and find Grindclock and then you wait till your opponent plays a creature. Use cards like Whisk Away or Oust (Grindclock on two). Use similar effects and then milling them out of the opponents deck. Use Storage Matrix to lock them out. I don't have any win cons in mind so I would love suggestions for this deck, thank you for reading and have a nice day.

Not running Grindclock for flavor purposes alone?

I am displeased, though the deck itself is pretty sweet despite this obvious flaw.

Contagion Clasp Contagion Engine and Throne of Geth could be useful Inexorable Tide as well. You might consider some modular creatures, or Blinkmoth Urn. Grindclock is pretty good too

Grindclock might be too slow but still

Take out Curse of the Bloody Tome for Sphinx's Tutelage. Also, Grindclock is a fun card for slower mill decks.

I would suggest Pyxis of Pandemonium rather than Grindclock. You need the speed for the milling artifacts, not the strength of them.

Duress/Despise/Harsh Scrutiny are all cheap and better alternatives to Distress.

Go for the Throat is arguably better than murder and still ~ 1$ unless that's too expensive. Maybe Doom Blade/Smother?

Other suggestions I HIGHLY recommend include Glint-Nest Crane, Thought Scour, Artificer's Intuition, Fog Bank, Whir of Invention.
