Nice Deck!

I build something alike (but in Casual). Came here for inspiration and got some :-)

Two Things came to mind:

I love your Death's Shadow-Idea. It seems very nice with coil if you find a quick way to fill your graveyard and trade life for something good like cards. Phyrexian Arena fits very well to this plan as does Sign in Blood and the like. Maybe something works with Street Wraith and more Fetchlands.

Hi there! I work on a somewhat similar deck (but without enchantment donation) and maybe got some ideas for you:

  • Maybe some more Fetchlands so you can't get bolted with Immortal Coil on your side before donating it. Also its pretty good to have some extra life and card draw if you cant get an Trader running or a Harmless Offering.
  • Think about Grab the Reins over Mark of Mutiny for its sacrifice possibility
  • Something like Phyrexian Tower to sacrifice stolen creatures when your Bazaar Trader got killed again
  • Thought about Nihil Spellbomb over Crypt? Costs more mana, but can give you a card

Here is my decklist: Grixis Coil Trader

Ya okay I like this! I have something along the same lines but never considered Immortal Coil. I could use that here maybe?...

Here, hold this....

AHighlyVisibleNinja, nice observation, I never noticed that! At the same time, I think the point of the card's name is that it's supposed to be ironic.

Exteez, I will definitely add it to the sideboard for game 2 against matchups that might board in Surgical Extraction, though I already have Sky Swallower as a backup. Immortal Coil also seems like a nice card to work around, but I think it might just be too much to set up and Demonic Pact is simply better. Furthermore, being a casual deck, I like Abyssal Persecutor better for flavor. I will definitely keep it in mind though, thanks for the suggestions!

rottenoysters, I'm not sure I follow what you are saying. Sky Swallower is not supposed to have any sort of interaction with Harmless Offering. It is in fact supposed to act as an alternate Harmless Offering on a stick (a big flying one at that).

Please consider Bazaar Trader as a backup, just in case they Surgical Extraction your Harmless Offering. Also Immortal Coil is a fun wincon if you have Nihil Spellbomb, Tormod's Crypt or Bojuka Bog

daseeker25 I think Persecutor and Swallower have a serious anti-synergy. Suppose you give them a Persecutor, and they're not dead. If you attack, they're guaranteed to chump with the Persecutor. Or, they'll attack, and if you block you lose the thing you wanted them to have, and if you don't, then it's only a matter of time before they stop attacking, and wait to block.

So, I've been toying around with a similar idea, but giving the opponent Immortal Coil instead of Demonic Pact, and running a bunch of graveyard hate and graveyard love. Immortal Coil incidentally hoses infect (and burn) while it's on your side of the battlefield, since they can basically only deal 10 (or 20) damage before running out of steam, you just play it once your life total is less than the number of cards in your graveyard. You can even run lands that effectively cause you to gain life.

Immortal Coil is another target for harmless.Boseiju, Who Shelters All makes harmless can't be countered.

Give your opponent Immortal Coil and have ways to exile their graveyard like Bojuka Bog
