Krosan Grip Discussion
3 days ago
Grand Warlord Radha can help you cast a lot of spells due to the amount of mana you can produce when your going wide. A little more on the pricier side is also Xenagos, God of Revels as he will double your creatures power.
I prefer Heroic Intervention over Make a Stand as it's one cost lower and green should be one of your more important colors although you won't be able to use it with Sunforger package. Krosan Grip should also be an auto-include.
Hope that helps!

The non competitive meta is way too large to test against, If you don't have a defined meta, just make sure that you can deal with the popular cards in the most popular archetypes: creatures, instants/sorceries, tokens, stax, control, graveyard based, artifact, enchantment, and combo. Note that Krosan Grip stops most combos with no iffs ands or buts. Cards should be able to deal with multiple of these archetypes, ie. play Swords to Plowshares to answer creature, combo, and some artifact decks. Play Return to Dust and Krosan Grip to stop artifact enchantment and combo. Don't play Tranquility, play Merciless Eviction and Austere Command. Just make sure you arn't playing overly specific cards and that you can stop the common things that will surely get thrown at you. These are all generalizations because I don't know your meta, and you don't seem to either, so this is probably the best way to start. "testing" in edh is just playing games against your friends/the people you play with. This isn't testing for a grand prix you can't just hop into a magic online league. Play the game and tune as you go, just don't forget what you are expecting to play against, and if that is everything, then you must plan and prepare for everything. As the flavor text on Game Plan says, "Plan for victory, or prepare for defeat."

Fantastic primer! I'm thinking of building a deck for a "tuned casual" meta - notably not cEDH - and wanted your opinion on including Krosan Grip and Sudden Spoiling against combos. They've been successful in my other non-blue decks, but are they worth it when you have access to counterspells? Would you always take a counterspell over one of these? Thanks

I agree with what sagramore is saying, pick a theme with how you want to construct your deck and go from there. From the comments and the way you want to go, which is going wide than stick to anthem like effects and equipments that will help you build your army and ramp.
Since you said you are on a tight budget I'll list some cards that are less than $5 that might be able to help you out.
Rampant Growth, Cultivate, Farseek, Faith's Reward, Wrath of God, Hunter's Insight, Relic Seeker, Auriok Steelshaper, Steelshaper Apprentice, Angel of Jubilation, Remember the Fallen, Cathars' Crusade, Behemoth Sledge, Qasali Pridemage, Leonin Warleader, Prowling Serpopard, Reclamation Sage, and Krosan Grip.
Hope some of the cards listed would be able to help you out!

Right off the bat there's some automatic includes I like to run in Golgari colors - those cards usually include some powerful effects that can effect the whole board with very little cost to you.
One of the biggest strengths black has is the ability to use what are referred to as Edict effects, which is a reference to a card called Diabolic Edict that forces your opponents to sacrifice creatures. This is powerful because no matter what you will trade a creature of yours for a creature of EACH opponent's - that's a one-for-three trade which gives you a sizable card advantage. Also sacrificing gets through pesky strategies like Indestructible or Hexproof from your opponents' commanders (chances are your opponents are going to try to protect their commanders very well).
For creatures that can do this easily, ordered from most favorite to least, Plaguecrafter, Merciless Executioner/Fleshbag Marauder (they are identical), lastly Slum Reaper. Slum Reaper is a bit more expensive but it's useful if you need more consistency of killing enemy creatures. If you REALLY want to push your opponents' creatures Butcher of Malakir can make sure no creature stays on the battlefield for very long as long as you constantly have creatures to throw into the graveyard.
You also have options in enchantments that can do this effect as well. Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos are solid options, but should only be seriously considered if you're focusing on a sacrifice theme.
Secondly, I like adding sacrifice outlets. They are powerful additions that give you an out whenever you're dealing with targeted or mass creature removal. Ideally you want your sacrifice outlets to be free, so cards like Ashnod's Altar, Altar of Dementia, Carrion Feeder, and Viscera Seer will make sure you never get nothing from a creature dying on your side of the battlefield. Other options that can play well with Vhati il-Dal are Phyrexian Plaguelord who can turn your creatures into a -1/-1 for a creature that you weaken with Vhati's activated ability. If you're going with a creature-focused combat damage strategy Evolutionary Leap and Mycoloth are good options to trade your weaker creatures for more powerful options.
I'll list some overall good cards to add for Golgari colors, as well. Ramp (Named for Rampant Growth. These are cards that generate more mana for a small investment.)
- Sakura-Tribe Elder
- Kodama's Reach
- Explosive Vegetation
- Wood Elves
- Skyshroud Claim
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Golgari Signet
- Darksteel Ingot
- Cultivator's Caravan
- Sol Ring
- Eternal Witness
- Golgari Findbroker
- Journey to Eternity Flip
- Dread Return
- Find / Finality
- Living Death
- Hero's Downfall
- Malicious Affliction
- Unravel the Aether
- Acidic Slime
- Reclamation Sage
- Krosan Grip
- Beast Within
These are all just some ideas I hope they help you tone the deck into the direction you want it to go into.

The deck is at 100. But I'm not done yet...
Kicker Molten Disaster
Don't get the pattern? Maybe I can help you. They are cards w/ Split/Second. This means I can't cast anything to counter this, & would have to require a Mana Ability to counter it. What cards w/ Mana Abilities in all possible colors can counter these cards? We have Creatures that can't be Out-Flashed, Instants that can't be countered, & other nasty effects.
Any suggestions that can help? I'm thinking of replacing Mizzium Meddler for something that can counter this. Anything could help in this case. Thanks in advance. :)

I can also throw in some group hug stuff that I upgraded the Kynaios deck with if thats what you're interested in as well. Cards like; Krosan Grip, Thaumatic Compass, Ghirapur Orrery, and Mirari's Wake. As well as mixing and matching any of the c17 or Kynaios and Tiro cards. let me know if you're interested. :]
