Grindclock Discussion

RogueArtificer on Vorel Energy/counters

Grindclock seems like an odd choice. I'd almost suggest Erratic Portal instead since it lets you reuse your ETB creatures to get more energy or ETB effects. Maybe even Crystal Shard

Blighted Woodland is one of my favorite ramp cards since it just sits in your lands and isn't as restrictive as Myriad Landscape

Like the +1/+1 counter subtheme as well. How do you feel about cards like Spike Weaver as a reusable "Not in the face" option while you set up your Energy loops?

Artifact Lands will trigger Era of Innovation, are searchable for 0 off Tezzeret the Seeker along with being untappable with his +1. You can run 3 of them, totally worth it.

Hope those are helpful.

I also run artifact grind, like Millstone and Grindclock in my casual, just cause they allow me to mill every turn once they are out, but thought any of my artifact mill wouldnt be as effective in modern. Should I be rethinking that?

Power Conduit is modern legal according to It helps a lot with managing the number of counters on Brain in a Jar.

I also like Turn and Wear better than Far/Away and Abrupt Decay. They both go well with Muddle the Mixture and Counterbalance and are neither limited to low CMC nor let the opponent choose or summon again.

A Grindclock to sink your charge counters into and an Unwinding Clock (plus artifact lands) to play in opponent's turn, would require to make it vintage (and too much like): Brain Fuse (competitive)

Alrighty then. Cool deck, I personally love mill and run a blue black mill/zombie deck. I would drop the 2 Cancels and run 4x Counterspells, as you dont need one more mana to do the same thing. I would also drop Belltower Sphinx and Codex Shredder, because you need to use them a ton to actually have that small amount of mill to be helpful.

If you put some black in the deck it would run much better with cards such as Mind Funeral, consuming abberation, and Glimpse the Unthinkable. I you want to stick to mono-blue, I would add in 1 or 2 more Jace, Memory Adept, Traumatize and Grindclock. Hope this helps!

excaliber213 on Fog you and your "turn four" format

You're right. I need more wincons. I usually win by drawing people out but sometimes I need more of a clock. I think I will put Sigarda, Host of Herons Back in the mainboard. For aditional win-cons I'm thinking of something resistant to removal: Iona, Shield of Emeria, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, or perhaps something more mill based like Grindclock. What are your thoughts Bulldawg1310 ?

Your deck looks a little slow for me, the bugget deck of this i been testing has ~ turn 6 kill (still tweeking as i buy the cards i am missing). i love Jace, Memory Adept but yeah hes to slow, same reason why i had to remove Traumatize. for your deck you really should try out Visions of Beyond over Pilfered Plans and Undercity Informer seeing as you have a lot of dudes you can sac.

Tome Scour is fine but i was going to play that i would play Shriekhorn witch i have swapped out currently testing 3 Dream Twist 1 Isochron Scepter not enough reps to be 100% but i dont like this compared to the previous configuration. i think i will be trying Grindclock next.

You should have a look List he has a good list of the pros and cons of each mill card.
