Grip of Chaos Discussion

Grip of Chaos, Eye of the Storm and Warp World are neat chaos cards. Pairing Eye of the Storm and Hive Mind together gets crazy.

Just found Grip of Chaos, and I think it is the perfect kind of card for this deck. I've always hated the inflexibility of Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast, and loved Wild Ricochet despite it's high CMC for a one time use spell I wouldn't be able to recur, but Grip of Chaos seems like an amazing card for this deck.

Gonna playtest it as soon as possible. It does hurt some of the interactions of my deck, but if I am smart about when I play it I'll be able to pillowfort with it and help seal off a win.

Any thoughts?

Clay_Teapot, Grip of Chaos is on my MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Infinite Cards because of that value. That said, this list is focusing more on blue's flavor of control more than anything.

While it won't stop counterspells Grip of Chaos does ruin plans about half the time.

Good grief michiko's price has gone up though!

Grip of chaos is often far more pillow-fortish than people may suspect, really disrupts any planned breakdown of your fort

MagicalHacker on Official MagicalHacker Commander List Update ...

2 months ago

Welcome, fellow planeswalkers, to the Official MagicalHacker Commander List Update (OMCLU) for Hour of Devastation!

If you are not aware, I have had lists for commander staple effects for a very long time now, and I have been updating them as new sets are released. Rather than showcasing individual cards that are being used, I instead use these lists to show all cards in categories that have proven to be advantageous to have in Commander. More specifically, these categories of staples are ones that answer certain problems a deck could be experiencing, such as having a hard time against control, not being able to play cards in hand quickly enough, or dealing with problematic commanders. (They can be found on my profile.)

The purpose of this thread is three-fold:

  1. To raise public awareness for these lists (which I know to be extremely useful since I use them more than literally any other resource online when building decks).

  2. To receive feedback about HOU cards that should be added/removed from lists.

  3. To receive feedback about older cards that should be added/removed from lists.

Hour of Devastation is now up on Gatherer, so its now time to go through the process of updating my decks!

Lol in my experience people find group hug and chaos decks the most annoying actually. I hate playing Norin the Wary for example with Confusion in the Ranks, Grip of Chaos, Possibility Storm etc because it makes it so difficult to interact or plan I just scoop and find another game. Decks that run a ton of mana doublers also suck because turns start to take 10 minutes or more almost immediately. That's my experience, if you really want to make them hate playing commander go chaos or ramp.

I built something that might be a bit more chaotic then you're aiming for. There are a ton of good enchantments in Zedruu's colors that just make the game crazy. Cards like Grip of Chaos, Eye of the Storm, Confusion in the Ranks, Teferi's Realm and Mana Maze just totally wreck everyone's game plans and make for a very interesting game. My deck is less group hug and more plain old chaos though. Check it out if you want any ideas: Chaotic Neutral Goats.
