Relic of Progenitus Discussion

Maybe you can try Grafdigger's Cage and/or Surgical Extraction in the sideboard as your graveyard hate, I think Relic of Progenitus is not efficient enough because you'll need to keep leaving up mana.

Thunderous Wrath exceeded my expectations by a large margin, and won me games on its own vs control, I had to keep this at 4.
I also took your suggestion, and added a couple Into the Roil over lands to deal with permanents on board, which came in handy.

WiltLeafElves like I said on your page, when I built this deck I didn't use it to be competitive so my casual-esque games were full of dragons and spirits, so yeah I had a sideboard full of flyers. Im keeping the plummets in there as a just in case situation. I will switch to the Thornweald Archer though. im not seeing the point of scavenging ooze? do you think I should just cut the plummets and add Relic of Progenitus? my meta is full of death shadow.

Well if I'm being honest... I've been away for some months, and when I took the hiatus, Grixis Control was doing pretty well, spearheaded by Corey Burkhart. I expected that trend to continue.
I tested around in the present meta, and the fact is that Grixis Control (as opposed to Shadow) just isn't a very good deck right now. That pains me and is quite hard to get my head around.
Every game against Eldrazi, Shadow, Burn, Affinty, even Hatebears, feels like an uphill battle that I MIGHT win, but more often don't. There is one too many Relic of Progenitus, one too many Cavern of Souls, one too many Etched Champion in all of those matchups to really get to a positive or even win/loss ratio.
The reason Cavern of Souls is so devastating is that counterspells are there in grixis (i didn't always realize that) to give it a breather, to make an exchange that is equal in card value but positive in tempo. They set you up for Snapcaster Mage and the commands to take control (yea, lol) of the game. Mana Leaking a Thought-Knot Seer may be the most important play there is against eldrazi.
So if I seem put off by certain cards, this is the overarching reason.
I hope there's a solution there, because honestly, while the colors are the same, Grixis Shadow does not compare at all to Grixis control. It's a cool deck, but just not my cup of tea.

I would completely remove white from the SB and just go full RB.
1 or 2 Exquisite Firecraft have been really good for me. It is a great card against control decks and it is a guaranteed four damage. I would play this instead of Guttural Response, you dont need to get into a counter war with this type of deck.
2 or 3 Nihil Spellbomb is great graveyard hate against control, dredge, lantern, etc. In this kind of deck, it is better than Rest in Peace because it draws you a card, only costs one to cast, and the effect is asymmetrical. I also like Relic of Progenitus in this spot, but Spellbomb is better if you are running black and Grim Lavamancer.
Typically, Boros Burn plays three Path to Exile in the side for the Eldrazi matchup. I would replace these with three Dismember. Dismember also works well with Death's Shadow and can be cast for colorless through a blood moon.
Rain of Gore is an absolute house in the right matchup. It is great against Lightning Helix, Batterskull, Kitchen Finks, and all of soul sisters. It can win you games that are otherwise unwinnable (i.e. soul sisters).
This is what Im proposing for a SB:
2x Exquisite Firecraft - one of these is a flex spot
3x Dismember - one of these is a flex spot
3x Rain of Gore
1x Skullcrack - this is a flex spot
I really like Grim Lavamancer in this kind of deck. Two main board makes sense.
12 fetches is probably too many. Eight fetches (four Bloodstained Mire four Arid Mesa) makes sense. I think two or three Swamps would work for the main. You could replace the other four fetches with Foreboding Ruins.
I think you can take out the three Fatal Push in the main and replace it with two Searing Blaze and another Grim Lavamancer. Searing blaze is one of my favorite cards in burn against creature decks. Instead of Fatal Push in the main, run two or three Dismember in the side.

I would suggest a Relic of Progenitus against graveyard decks.

The sideboard should ideally be used to hate on other matchups to give you an advantage I would run something like this (of course this changes based on which matchups you find yourself facing a lot; for example if you ever face affinity you want Stony Silence):

I find Hero of Bladehold is your most expendable card at the higher portion of the curve, honestly it's just preference anything that costs a good amount of mana should be up for being cut.
As for the sideboard, here is a rough outline:
- First Disenchant and/or Smash to Smithereens to deal with opposing artifacts, most notably the Aether Vial seen in Merfolk.
- Relic of Progenitus to deal with graveyard
- Rest in Peace as a graveyard denial card
- Iroas, God of Victory to switch from ETB to full out agro.
- Dusk / Dawn as your choice wrath (you could also include a single copy of Wrath of God or Anger of the Gods)
- The fourth Path to Exile
- Card: stony silence to shut of artifacts
- Mana Tithe is not necessary but could be interesting and is really fun to play
- Phyrexian Revoker just in case you find some combo based decks.
Other cards to consider for SB (these are great sideboard cards that based on your matchups I don't see as being totally necessary but they can be considered):
