Maraxus of Keld Discussion
2 months ago
Maraxus of Keld majored in Wedgies 408 (Doctorate level). He disapproves of his current lack of inclusion.

After looking over the other artifact generals Thada Adel, Acquisitor (aggro) and Geth, Lord of the Vault (control/combo) are definitely artifact matters generals.
Shattergang Brothers (control) is, at least, a consideration because you need artifacts for him to work at all (and is more viable than Pia Nalaar as a general).
I would love to see a mono-red Maraxus of Keld (aggro/comb) artifact deck too lol

I guess I should talk about what works good from live testing. I've noticed that with grenzo in play it tends to be mostly effective in a second main phase deck where cards like Maraxus of Keld shine witch I will be adding in eventually. You also need the deck to function just fine without grenzo witch should be easy. So what I've noticed certain cards shined when grenzo was in play cards such as. Zealous Conscripts taking a blocker was good, Spawn of Thraxes killing a blocker was good, Inferno Titan for the same reason, Etched Champion gets through almost always, Avatar of Fury being able to cast it for 2 red is great but a flying 5/5 with a fire breathing built in was great. Hateflayer was especially good for grenzo can attack too and just use its untap ability to get grenzo through and keep him alive. That one I really liked. Hamletback Goliath got so huge so quick. But with Blade of Selves and or Rite of the Raging Storm inot play it was awesome. Sword of Feast and Famine was great. It was perfect. All the Swords were great especially Sword of Vengeance for its Trample and Vigilance mostly.
I played roughly 8 games didn't get to use all the cards but found myself not having and problem with mana. Being able to cast other peopls spells is such a nice quality that you usually find something to make your mana curve work just right. Additionally I found myself have any where from 3 to 5 creatures in play on an average at all times. So that was good. Flying for evasion was good too.
Grenzo allows you to build a mono red deck with creatures however you like. That's the coolest part.

Going back to scopesightzx's original thoughts on Bant, I'm thinking Roon of the Hidden Realm is worth another look. You can run the cards you mentioned above, and also get powerful Flicker effects from Sad Robot and others like Sun Titan, Farhaven Elf, and Wood Elves.
Finally, though I'm sure I missed some, here's all the non-Bant options I can think of (many already mentioned above):
- U: Meloku the Clouded Mirror; Patron of the Moon
- B: Korlash, Heir to Blackblade; Ob Nixilis, the Fallen
- R: Maraxus of Keld
- G: Azusa, Lost but Seeking; Kamahl, Fist of Krosa; Molimo, Maro-Sorcerer; Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip; Titania, Protector of Argoth
- WU: Brago, King Eternal
- WG: Karametra, God of Harvests
- RG: Borborygmos Enraged; Mina and Denn, Wildborn; Omnath, Locus of Rage
- WUB: Dakkon Blackblade
- WRG: Hazezon Tamar
