Oblivion Stone Discussion

Ha thanks so much OneShoeCharlie! Let me know how it goes. In my playtesting I've realized that there are a ton of decision-points that make piloting it especially difficult. Also, Stranglehold would just wreck this deck lol. I'm contemplating putting Oblivion Stone and Perilous Vault in to deal with opposing strategies that hose the deck.

I like that this deck is so artifact centric, but you're somewhat missing the point of Hanna's strength. Artifacts and enchantments that can bury themselves have high value in your deck, you can quite easily sac them and reanimated in the same, at least by midgame that is.
Aura of Silence, Mindslaver, Burnished Hart, Seal of Cleansing, Oblivion Stone, there are multitude of other WU and colorless artifacts and enchantments that do cool things you can keep recurring. It's a really matter of what kind of deck you want your reanimated cards to play as.
Hope this points you in some fun directions.

I LOVE YOUR DECK!! +1 from me!
Thoughts on Trading Post and Mirage Mirror? I use the post to stop my artifacts from getting exiled, make tokens to block with and/or sacrifice the token for artifact recursion. Lastly the token can be used for a Contamination lock. Mirage mirror is just CRAZY versatility which I think can serve this deck quite well.
What is your plan to deal with artifacts and enchantments? From a glance, all I see if Karn. I usually find All Is Dust, Nevinyrral's Disk, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, and Oblivion Stone can help with this (albeit at risk of getting rid of your stuff as well).
What are your thoughts of Rings of Brighthearth for the deck? I don't know about your meta's rules for infinite combos, but you can get infinite black mana with Coffers + Urborg + Deserted temple + A couple more lands + Rings.
Also if you are running the leyline you might want to run Helm of Obedience if you like destroying people's will to play magic.

Welcome to Grixis Control! As a lifelong fan of Grixis control I can say you have a pretty decent deck list. However, I do have a few suggestions to offer.
I see you are running Exquisite Blood. Since you run Venser's Journal, I would also suggest running Sanguine Bond as a way to kill your opponents faster. Additionally, I would consider Necropotence for added card advantage and it partners nicely with the journal.
You seem to run a lot of top deck manipulation effects in Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain, Sleight of Hand and Read the Bones. I would recommend cutting some or all of those for tutors like Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Mystical Tutor or even some of the budget friendlier options such as Diabolic Revelation, Diabolic Tutor, and Dark Petition. Tutoring is a lot more effective for control in the commander environment since you are dealing with a 99 card singleton deck. If you want top deck manipulation I would suggest adding Sensei's Divining Top.
Lastly, I have a couple suggestions for your mass and targeted removal. I would definitely add Damnation to the list if it fits the budget. Additionally, Decree of Pain is wonderful in a control build where removal and card advantage are key. With this card you net both. You may also want to consider artifact board removal such as Nevinyrral's Disk and Oblivion Stone. For instant speed single target removal I recommend Terminate, Hero's Downfall and Crosis's Charm for added flexibility.
I hope you enjoy playing Grixis Control!

Heartless Hidetsugu, Malignus have obvious synergy with gisela. Mirran Crusader is always a solid early drop if you're lacking for that, idk if you are. Inferno Titan is always good. If you're playing tokens, where is Odric, Master Tactician? If you're playing Gisela, why do you need Sphere of Safety and Ghostly Prison? I love the inclusion of Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast. Underrated cards. Blue kills Boros too often. You can afford some dead draws against other decks.
Where is Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Blasphemous Act, etc? If you're looking to spend more money for a colorless option, Oblivion Stone exists. Boardwipes are important. Austere Command is incredible, but it's a 6-drop and sometimes you really need the mana. Casting Blasphemous Act for one red mana is not uncommon.
44 lands is excessive. Is there a specific reason I'm missing to run more than 40? Land-heavy decks tend to run 40-42. I'd cut down to 38-40. Ancient Amphitheater is basically a second Boros Guildgate in a deck without a lot of giants. Cascading Cataracts seems bad to me. It's indestructible but it's lategame fixing and otherwise can't produce colored mana. A ramp alternative is Chromatic Lantern.
Speaking of ramp, Boros has a hard time with it (Land Tax is great but not enough -- it's one card) and it's honestly questionable to not run Burnished Hart, Thran Dynamo, etc. I really enjoy Endless Horizons but you have to not play into enchantment-hate. Knight of the White Orchid is obviously good; I hold that Oreskos Explorer is always at least Okay in a multiplayer game and in 1v1 is basically a second KOTWO. Good call on Boros Signet, some people undervalue those. I consider them mandatory in 2-color and usually in 3-color as well.
In general, ramp is a more consistent way to A: not get land-flooded and B: cast big stuff faster. Lands are less susceptible to destroy effects..... until someone drops Armageddon.
Hope this helped. I like Boros a little too much so I get very excited when people try to get into it.

I mostly have demonic pact in there to keep the Liliana Theme, but sure, I could add Phyrexian Arena.
I don't actually need ways to blow it up that much anymore, because most games recently end up where I have Sidisi, Undead Vizier, or Fleshbag Marauder, or any creature with an etb + Smothering Abomination bouncing around my emblem.
Karn is kind of expensive, but I'll consider Oblivion Stone. would help get rid of an active demonic pact, also works with my emblem. Endstep, I have everyones creatures.

Why not just cut demonic pact and add Phyrexian Arena?

If I can find one that's cheap enough, I'll probably throw Oblivion Stone in there. For now, I'm trying to keep this SUPER budget, so I'll put it in the maybeboard. Definitely a good card to keep in mind, though.
