CrimsonKing on W: 2x Herald of anguish ...

Just looking for some Herald of Anguish. I have a Saheeli Rai a Polluted Delta and a Bloodstained Mire. Might have other things laying around too.

So you've fallen into the grixis trend eh? Awesome deck. For the mana base, fetch lands like Polluted Delta thank can be fetched for lands like Steam Vents or Blood Crypt that are really helpful. I always found Dreadbore a bit more versatile than Terminate, but I would go 2 and 2. Absolutely fantastic, huge +1

Omg. Standard mistake of modern newcommers about lands. =)

Evolving Wilds is terrible. I suggest 1-2 Minamo, School at Water's Edge to untap your creature-jace, so you can transform him earlier.

You also might put some Ghost Quarters and/or Tectonic Edges to disrupt opponent's lands (it's control deck after all ;) )

And perhaps some fetch-lands like Flooded Strand and/or Polluted Delta to minimize the amount of lands in your library when you'll get enough on the battlefield. (in this deck, I think, it's about 4-6 lands on battlefield is time to use fetches)

I hope it was helpfull. However I like this idea. Good luck!

Ok, Hello there again, buddy!

Let's talk lands:

  • The main point about your lands is that they must follow your gameplan structure. If you're playing a slow paced, more reactive deck, then check lands (e.g. Drowned Catacomb) can help.

  • If, otherwise, you're a playing a proactive deck and you intend on doing a lot of sorcery spells on your turn, then you might better go with some shock lands and fast lands (e.g. Watery Grave and Darkslick Shores, respectively).

  • Sooner or later, you're going to find yourself looking for some mana filtering, then it will be the time to get some Polluted Delta. This type of land, fetch as people call it, is the ultimate manabase fixing tool. Nearly every deck with two or more colors needs it.

  • Unless you use something with or on the mana cost, you don't really need Sunken Ruins. Even if you do, one copy would be enough.

  • In a real control build, Creeping Tar Pit is a very good win-con. It deals damage quite consistently.

  • No land that always enters the battlefield tapped (e.g. Dismal Backwater, Dimir Guildgate) is good.

If you want your build to get seen, don't forget to add hubs to it in the editor like BUG/Sultai, Dredge, and reanimator. It'll help you get more input from the community.

That said, I don't know nothin about the frontier metagame and how fast or slow it is, so im just gonna vomit some ideas at you. Gisa and Geralf can mill 4 and let you cast some zombies, Haunted Dead can see consistent use being able to reanimate a bunch (at instant speed), having more artifact creatures can help turn on your delirium like Lupine Prototype, and you have the discard outlets to let it attack a bunch. Where Sidisi, Brood Tyrant benefits from you milling creatures into the grave The Gitrog Monster can benefit from milling lands, and Graveblade Marauder can be pretty nasty with a packed graveyard. Decimator of the Provinces can end games the turn it comes out, especially if you manage to go wide with sidisi. Then there's 'spencive cards like Grim Flayer and Polluted Delta, those will usually help. Smuggler's Copter will probably fit well for card advantage and filtering stuff into the graveyard.

Esper is a great deck to play with, if you dont have the budget. You've got the right theme, however some of your cards can be replaced with more efficiant ones to get a really well-oiled feel to the deck.

Think Twice is good, but I personally prefer Peek as a better way to have control of the board.

If you're having problems drawing, Street Wraith can be cycled for a free draw from the hand.

Thoughtseize is a strict upgrade over Duress, I would add 2 more in and take Duress out.

As for creatures, I really enjoy Soul Ransom, as you get more card draw and creature use and removal.

For land, Polluted Delta is pretty hard to beat. You can fetch out all of your dual lands and it's really great for blending colors.

Thats all I got. Hope it helps!
