Ob Nixilis, the Fallen Discussion

SynergyBuild, that's perfect. Thank you! I don't know how I missed that land in my searches.

Heliogabale, great point on Strionic Resonator, I even happen to have one. Avatar of Growth is definitely a must include as well.

The white counter spells weren't for a quasi removal as much as they were for protecting my setup, especially when it's all getting activated. Gift of Immortality is also there both to protect Ob Nixilis, Unshackled or bring Fertilid back after I use him up. Do you think these are wasted card slots?

Excellent call on Assassin's Trophy and Path to Exile - totally needed additions; both effective and working on them. I have a Trophy and will keep on the lookout for a Path.

Ob Nixilis, the Fallen would be a fantastic add! Not just on flavour, but he'd work with the The Gitrog Monster/Crucible of Worlds package. I could use another "play an extra land" card, perhaps. Now that you mentioned more demons, I have a Rune-Scarred Demon which is one of my favourite combos with Pattern of Rebirth. If I have Ob Nixilis already and Fertilid already in play, he could be a great third option to bring in so I can find another key card.

I do like the idea of a another win-con. I appreciate diverse gameplay. While the instant win cards aren't as enjoyed in our format, Liliana's Contract could work and I'm going to start giving other options some serious thought.

This is a nice idea! I hope you manage to make it work.

You need a Strionic Resonator to double the activations of Ob-Nixilis or Maralen.

Avatar of Growth would be great if you can lay your hands on one.

I am not too fond of the white counterspell sub-theme you have included; with this color scheme you have ample options for removal. Personally I like Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, and Pernicious Deed. With your search to kill theme, Assassin's Trophy and Path to Exile should also be included.

Not sure why you are currently including Gift of Immortality, but adding a Spore Frog and a Necrotic Sliver makes for fun control.

Since your theme is running a bit thin, I see two options to make this deck more efficient : filling it to the brim with tutors, or including an alternate wincon. I definitely favour the second option; and I though you would like it to include your hidden general for flavor. Here is my suggestion for that:

Liliana's Contract and inexpensive Demons, like Desecration Demon, Grinning Demon, Herald of Torment, Indulgent Tormentor, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen, Rakshasa Deathdealer, Soulcage Fiend.

Hope this helps!

You are definitely on the right path, here's some suggestions, playtest them and see how they go

Lotus Cobra, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen, Nesting Dragon, Seer's Sundial, Tilling Treefolk, The Mending of Dominaria, Creeping Renaissance and Nissa, Vital Force

Good luck!

You may want to run a landfall package inside of the deck?

Perhaps Titania, Protector of Argoth or Ob Nixilis, the Fallen?

You have a point about not dying early. :) Though adding more 5 & 6 cmc demons isn't the way to go I don't think. Only problems I see are your curve is top heavy. More disruption/removal would help. Ring of Three Wishes and Whip of Erebos are a little too cute to be running in my opinion. Victim of Night, Fatal Push, Inquisition of Kozilek, Blackmail, or Funeral Charm are all viable early game plays.

If you really wanna go full on Liliana's Contract, I would narrow it down to 5-6 demons, maybe even adding something like Skirsdag High Priest to pump out Demon Tokens (They count towards the contract) to have an early board presence.
My creature base would be something like this:
3 Skirsdag High Priest
3 Wall of Souls or Gifted Aetherborn whichever suits your playstyle
4 Ammit Eternal
4 Desecration Demon
3 Ob Nixilis, the Fallen
4 Crypt Ghast
1 Indulgent Tormentor
1 Griselbrand

From there you should have plenty of room to fit all of your ramp, removal/disruption and contracts.

Blackerlotus13 yeah i am needing to grab a Ob Nixilis, the Fallen and i have played with The Gitrog Monster and i will probably end up putting him back in the deck now that i have it at lot more tuned to recursion, but back when it was a new deck to me i didnt have much recursion other than Lord Windgrace's -3 now that i have some reliable ways to get lands back he is going to be a staple piece now to just take a piece out i will most likely take out Loyal Guardian as its ok but The Gitrog Monster would be better. in fact i just swapped them lol i really do appreciate all the help fellow windgrace players have done to make this deck better and i will defiantly take a look at your deck and

If you can get your hands on an Ob Nixilis, the Fallen, and a The Gitrog Monster I would highly recommend plugging those in somewhere. Other than that it seems pretty decent.

If you wanna check out my windgrace pile at Black Panther has Landed maybe you might get some ideas or if you wanna leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Get Titania, Protector of Argoth and Avenger of Zendikar or Rampaging Baloths on the table. Float your mana play Rain of Filth sac all lands and make 5/3 elementals. Use a floated mana to play Splendid Reclamation beef up 0/1s or make beasts. Would also be and auto kill with Ob Nixilis, the Fallen. If someone tries to counter Rain of Filth play Autumn's Veil
