Grinding Station Discussion

I love the Blasting Station, Grinding Station combos.

Maybe tighten up the land base so BR lands are RW instead and lower the number of Mountain in favor of increasing the number of Plains?

Perilous Myr could be a very good sacrifice outlet. Also I'm not sure how good of a win con Grinding Station is. I like the flavour, but have you ever actually milled someone out with it? Maybe replace it with Trophy Mage to tutor Blasting Station.

Nice deck. I would add in a few Blasting Stations, just in case you don't draw into any Grinding Stations. If you do, you should also add in a few Memnites, unless they are too expensive for the deck. Also, thanks for your comment on my Naya Twinless Twin Combo Deck. Hope this helps!

I like your creative combos! However I feel obligated to point out that Temporal Mastery exiles itself; so you can't use it with Mnemonic Wall or Archaeomancer. Some you can use effectively for that are as follows in monetary order: Time Stretch, Temporal Manipulation and Capture of Jingzhou. A fun combo i've been using is Myr Battlesphere with Ashnod's Altar. You can use Eldrazi Displacer or Nim Deathmantle to put the engine online. My win con with it is Grinding Station, Altar of the Brood or Staff of Domination. I like this core combo because nearly all of the pieces are artifacts which makes setting it up easy for me. Good luck!

@usaDiabetic Thank you so much! Ill expand my black inventory with these awesome (and budgety) cads you have suggested!It will be alot more fun to play. Tatterkite was already recomendet to me beacuase of the Insta win combo with cards such as Grinding Station+Any Sac outlet(but on itself is pretty nice in that constellation) , or Walking Ballista, Pith Driller and Triskelion(Note: If somebody in my playgroup wins via infinite hes either beaten up verbally for the next couple weeks or the drinks for the evening are on him.)

what about Elixir of Immortality and Grinding Station? Elixr can help you not accidentally mill yourself and grinding station can mill your opponents as you cast artifacts. When you inevitably play out your entire deck, you can sac all your artifacts with Krark-Clan Ironworks then crack elixr, and grind your opponent to death

I see what you are trying to do but if you want to mill your opponent you have to make it quick, otherwise they will rush you down. Mill and Drill (SUPER BUDGET) Is an example of a great low cost combo which mills your opponent. My cousin and I also designed an Artifact mill combo between Krark-Clan Ironworks + Grinding Station and 2 Myr Retriever. He also did a deck which used Pili-Pala and Grand Architect with some "Pay X and opponent puts X cards from library to graveyard".

If you are willing to go all out without a budget restriction am sure there are some other combos which might be a bit more expensive moneywise but are much more efficient mechanicwise.

Love the idea, but it needs some work. First off before I use constructive critisism until this thing is in the dirt, let me say that I am glad that someone finally found a way to break chronozoa, thank you.Second, here are some cards that you are running that are frankly, garbage.

  1. Spawning Pit Very ugly non-bo with solemnity, no charge counters, try Grinding Station.

  2. Sphinx's Revelation Good card, but... you will never need 4, drop that number to 2 if you REALLY like them. If you are that concerned about drawing cards, use Blue Sun's Zenith as a better replacement.

  3. Anointed Procession This is what is considered a "win more" card. You have no need for this thing at all, its only good with the combo, and it only does a little extra.

Now, about what can be done to this deck or added to it I would say should be as follows.

  1. More threats. This combo is absolutely absurd, but you have a problem, you have a too small chance of drawing your pieces. Thus, you added card draw. This is a good start, but you need to make this more resilient. This can be done with cards like Geist of Saint Traft, Celestial Colonnade, or, as a possible finisher, Elspeth, Sun's Champion.

  2. Elaborate on the deck's combo. This combo is an absolutely bonkers thing, especially in modern, take advantage of what Solemnity is giving you, the key to infinite combos. Add more Phyrexian Unlife, maybe slash black for a Zur the Enchanter, or Geralf's Messenger, play absurd things like Kitchen Finks, Glen Elendra Archmage, or some janky stuff like Jotun Grunt, Krovikan Whispers, or, if you want to be a major jerk, Phyrexian Soulgorger. And if you REALLY want that juicy card draw, Survivor of the Unseen, and Wall of Shards can become an OP Wall of Omens

  3. Getting solemnity. This is your power-card, getting it can be the problem though, for this, I suggest Idyllic Tutor, or the aforementioned Zur.

  4. However, do realize, that in order for this deck to work, it should at least be able to function without your precious Solemnity on the field.

  5. Lastly, add some of white and blue's super-powers, defense. Path to Exile, Detention Sphere, Leyline of Sanctity, Worship.

In any case, this seems like an un-flushed out idea, so I suggest that you try tinkering with it some more, see how good you can make it!
