Grip of Chaos Discussion

I love chaos decks but you gotta know Grip of Chaos is profoundly bad-mannered and is the type of card that will make people not want to play against you. I would replace it with Possibility Storm. That or Confusion in the Ranks or Mindmoil. Wild Evocation perhaps.

Great deck, I love chaos +1. I must say, however; I prefer Psychic Battle to Grip of Chaos. It hits spells with multiple targets, reveals a card from the top of everyone's libraries, is one mana cheaper and can be less predictable. It's especially hilarious when there's a chain of spells on Eye of the Storm.

In my decks, the cards that haven't been printed since the modern frame that I had never seen played before I found them to put them in my deck are Caverns of Despair, Grip of Chaos, Hall of Gemstone, Holistic Wisdom, Primal Order, Titania's Song, Hunting Grounds, Ritual of the Machine, Steal Enchantment, Aura Thief, and Thalakos Deceiver.

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
