Baleful Strix will go in the deck as soon as i find one. Oona's Blackguard was in the deck it was cool but didnt like it mixed with the dethrone, as in choice attacks. i already have another deck that does land destruction dont really want another one so Jokulhaups is out. Metallic Mimic i need to play test this card i see why i should have it, sac it choose a new creature type profit... i just need to play test with it. cards like Urabrask the Hidden and Ogre Battledriver dont tickle my fancy here at all Lightning Greaves Anger and Sneak Attack is enough haste for me, i dont want more creatures without death triggers or etb triggers. Midnight Reaper is a good one but i feel like it would kill me... the few games i have played with this deck ive won with less than 10 life so ive been hesitating putting it in.

thank you Last_Laugh for the suggestions ill have to play test a few cards you have suggested.

Chaos Warp 100% deserves a spot as our best answer to enchantments by a long shot. Last One Standing and Jokulhaups are both excellent here. Metallic Mimic , Baleful Strix , Midnight Reaper , Oona's Blackguard , Ogre Battledriver , and Urabrask the Hidden all deserve spots (you're very light on creatures currently.) and I'd look mainly to your spot reumoval/counterspells for cuts.

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decklists is appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them

This is cool. I dismantled a Grixis deck a while ago, and I've been trying to decide whether I want to build Grixis Rogues with Marchesa, the Black Rose and Oona's Blackguard / Metallic Mimic / Grenzo, Dungeon Warden or to go in on Yuriko with a few of the staples like Insidious Dreams that I traded for when she came out. They both seem like fun.

For this deck, if you plan on repeatedly bouncing Yurkio, Phyrexian Tower is probably as cheap as it's ever going to be, and it can minimize the cost of ninjutsu-ing in every turn. If you get a little deeper on tribal, Cover of Darkness is very good, as is Kindred Discovery . Also, 32 lands is pretty ambitious. Only cEDH decks that don't expect to see turn 6 most of the time run that few lands.

Also, nice tech on Unnatural Selection . I want to build a Saproling deck with Reaper King and subtype changers.

You could use more Faeries. Typically, you want to go for a minimum of 30 tribe members in a tribal EDH deck. You might also want Muddle the Mixture , Dimir Infiltrator , and Shred Memory to grab your Oona's Blackguard and Bitterblossom , seeing as the deck really ticks with those two cards in play. Along those lines, Notorious Throng and Knowledge Exploitation are also good. You also need more early-game ramp. Talisman of Dominance and Dimir Signet seem like givens.

As for what to cut, Cryptic Gateway doesn't make a whole lot of sense. It's a 5 mana artifact that lets you tap two creatures to play a card with a maximum CMC of 4. Likewise, I love Rite of Replication as a card, but what are you copying that's worth the mana? Followed Footsteps seems awfully mediocre, and Tree of Perdition doesn't seem to go great with a deck that's going to be slowly draining the opponents over a number of turns. You also seem to be pretty heavy on creature removal. Do you really need Cast Down, Doom Blade, Murder, Go For the Throat, Tragic Slip, and Imprisoned in the Moon with three Wraths and Control Magic?

Oona's Blackguard is a good fit in a The Haunt of Hightower build with lots of creatures to put counters on. But this deck doesn't rely on creatures to win, so I don't think it would fit in the deck. Thanks for the suggestion though!

When I saw this card spoiled the first thing that came to mind was Oona's Blackguard . Might be worth a spot.

ninja988 - Thanks for the suggestions!! Lemme go through them here.

Swapping card count for Stinkdrinker Bandit and Inkfathom Witch - There are two reasons there are more of Inkfathom Witch . For one, her ability let’s me access a higher bonus more quickly, rather than perhaps getting multiple Stinkdrinker Bandit ’s. Secondly, she actually has a conditional unblockable keyword, Fear. That makes her able to join the attack in most situations without external help like Stinkdrinker Bandit would need. However, you are right, Stinkdrinker Bandit ’s stacking potential isn’t really being utilized. So I compromised and made them both 3x.

Oona's Blackguard - I’ll think about it. While she has the potential to do more discard than Mental Vapors , she’s also a LOT more easily removed.

Sygg, River Cutthroat - I did consider him before, some other people have also recommended him. I feel, however, that Curious Obsession gives me more draw, and also serves as a buff. It also, again, is a lot harder to removed than Sygg, River Cutthroat . So I’m gonna keep what I got for this one.

Thanks again for the comment!
