yea it looks good. the only thing is you might want to add a couple Mistcutter Hydra for your Zameck Guildmage . You have the ramp, but not that many big creatures. Plus if you have a lot of mana you can pump up Mistcutter Hydra for a good amount. Gyre Sage can be helpful with ramp as well
I think you might be playing too many mini-board wipes like Drown in Sorrow and Anger of the Gods when neither of them do very much against a lot of the top decks in the format like MBD, GR Monsters, and UW control. Also, I can say from personal experience that Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius is only really good against a fishbowl. He is 6 mana that doesn't do anything the turn he hits the field, and he is really easy to remove. Master of Cruelties also is incapable of actually killing someone by himself, so you have to wait until you draw a burn spell or another creature, and that can give them a little too much time. Hypersonic Dragon just dies too easily. So I might just cut back on wincons altogether. You also don't have any ways of drawing cards (other than Niv-Mizzet), which hurts you when you mostly have 1-for-1 trading cards like Dreadbore . If I was you I would probably play both Underworld Connections and Jace, Architect of Thought for draw. Maybe a single copy of Opportunity or something, or you could play Steam Augury as it is a very very fun card. One more thing, I would play a lot more instant speed removal, haste creatures like Stormbreath Dragon and Mistcutter Hydra , as well as the ability from Xenagos, God of Revels would hurt pretty bad for you.
Also, I would love it if you could find a place for 1x Elixir of Immortality if you wanted to have a way to rebuild your life total, and the shuffle ability (while not as good without Sphinx's Revelation in the deck) would reload your batteries on removal/discard. Also it would help against the Boros Burn decks, which seems like it would be a really bad matchup for you since they don't have to use burn on creatures and you don't gain very much life, and you actually hurt yourself at times.
As far as a sideboard goes, Dimir Charm would be a really versatile card to bring in, it keeps your opponent from drawing a Sphinx's Revelation , which is the most important thing they can do, it kills creatures like Nightveil Specter , Master of Waves , and Gray Merchant of Asphodel , and is an additional counterspell if you need them. A single Drown in Sorrow would make a good addition to the board. Counterflux is probably one of the best things you could play in your sideboard, period. I guess Duress and Lifebane Zombie should probably be there as well. Lastly, I would either make it the full 4 Doom Blade in the sideboard, or some number of Bile Blight or Ultimate Price .
Of course, play with whatever you feel comfortable playing and whatever works where you play, that was just based on facing the top decks in the format right now. Have fun, go Grixis! =)
Wow, what a cool deck. Mistcutter Hydra in the sideboard, in case you have to ditch your original plan and win quick? +1
Hey thanks for commenting what about this,
Progenitor Mimic $3.5
Unexpected Results $0.25
Clone F $1
2x Temple of Malice $10.00
2x Herald of Torment 1.75 each = $3.50
Mistcutter Hydra $3.50
It's a 55 cent difference but I think it's pretty good! Tell me what you think Thanks!
@tbabb632, I don't have much to deal with Master. I can overload Mizzium Mortars to deal with his tokens. And I have Mistcutter Hydra in the sideboard for the MUD matchup in general. I would say that he's the only real threat in Standard that I don't have a solid answer for. You can't win 'em all.
As for Fanatic of Mogis , I disagree. His ability is totally subject to my creature presence on the board. The only decks he is consistent against are those which have little to no removal. I already have favorable matchups against most of those decks because I can go bigger than they can. Flame-Wreathed Phoenix gives control decks hell, as they almost always have to tribute him. Against MBD, I have a flying creature that's effective enough to race their Desecration Demon until I get another threat on the field.
I played a 6 round IQ with this deck yesterday, and I only had ONE matchup all day that was such that I would have replaced the Phoenix with Fanatic of Mogis . I won that round fairly easily.
Speaking of which, I'm in the process of doing a full write-up for my experience at the Star City IQ I played at yesterday. I'll have it posted up sometime tomorrow afternoon.
Sorry, the Watery Grave s aren't for trade either. Heh, we're having a bit of trouble working this trade out aren't we? I'd still like to trade for your Kiora, the Crashing Wave if possible. Let me know what you think of a trade like this.
Thassa, God of the Sea $13.99
3x Herald of Torment @ $1.79
2x Mistcutter Hydra @ $3.49
Pain Seer $2.39
Kiora, the Crashing Wave $20.09
Temple of Deceit $4.99
I only need the one Temple of Deceit for now, as I have a trade in the works for the other one. Thoughts?
And ahead of time, the cards in this deck are the ones I'm least likely to trade if that helps.
