Lightning Bolt for shock

4x Lightning Bolt will make this a little more competitive. It's just so great utility and can occasionally win a game all on it's own

Opponent Turn 4: Shock Doom Blade Lightning Bolt Oblivion Ring Counterspell Abrupt Decay the list goes on...

BUT YES, there is a (Less than 46.6% chance as a result of responce) that you can win with this. Maybe.

Do we mention the fact this deck is not quite Modern legal or... Also could use some help in Modern format with things like Lightning Bolt and a decent sideboard

add another Purphoros, God of the Forge

remove Assemble the Legion , Mentor of the Meek , and Archangel of Thune . these cards a fairly slow for modern.

x4 Lightning Bolt , x4 Lightning Helix , x4 Path to Exile . no Boros Charm .

put in 4 Genesis Chamber and 4 Champion of the Parish .

I also don't know the reason you have Dawn Charm in the sideboard.

miracleHat on What exactly is the personality ...

I will just take Nicol Bolas for example.

causes opponents to lose mind (dragon claw touch thing)
powerful arcane spellcasting (best time lord/counter magic stuff)

Anways, grixis goes under:
powerful arcane abilities

Keep in mind that grixis is only a splash of red for Lightning Bolt and Terminate . Blue countermagic, black discard/creature removal is what fuels the deck.

I really love where you're going with this, man!

One thing I will say is that you may want more 1-offs in the deck, in order to keep from crippling your Gifts packages. (which are currently lackluster on the control side).

I'd -1 Electrolyze and -2 Remand in order to establish a more powerful gifts package, adding in things like Mana Leak and Lightning Bolt .

Additionally, being able to search for multiple mountain cards is an extreme advantage in this deck, and you need to abuse that as much as possible. I'm talking Snow-Covered Mountain , and other lands that are technically mountains.

Thanks for the suggestions, nayrash5. I added in 4x Dragonskull Summit As for the Lightning Bolt , I thought with Dreadbore , Terminate , Desecration Demon , Mogis, God of Slaughter , and the deathtouch from Typhoid Rats I'd be able to get any major threats out of the way so I'd be able to kill my opponents quick with Rakdos, Lord of Riots or Desecration Demon and wouldn't need any burn spells.
