Damn, Rise / Fall seems really dope

BTW, if you want your deck update to be transparent as well just put the code inside this

Hey weezle101 ! Thanks a lot for your suggestions, I totally agree with it. The reason (and the only) why I am not currently running Kolaghan's Command and Liliana, the Last Hope is because of Budget.

I also agree for the 4th Polluted Delta, but same here ;)

The only thing I would not agree is the -1 Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker for Kolaghan's Command here. This card has got me so much games that I just don't want to get rid of it, yet. Maybe I would cut 1x Rise / Fall and 1x Inquisition of Kozilek, or maybe other spots, I don't know yet.

I'll get the cards one day, for sure :)

Dear jaymc1130,

thanks for the suggestions. I will try some more as it is but let me comment on some decisions. Fact or Fiction over Into the Story FoF might draw me a little less raw card advantage but I will draw best of five. The reason I am running FoF is that it makes me way less graveyard dependend. I feel like grixis already depends quite a bit on the grave. I run only one copy since the four mana slot is already crowded (Kess;)).

Kess, Dissident Mage vs Tasigur, the Golden Fang I guess I want Kess to be good. I like the cute interaction with Brazen Borrower and want to test that. May´be I will try a one one split. I will admit that Kess did not feel that good in the past.

I am happy with my discard package. Rise / Fall

Force of Negation is a powerhouse and stops instant combo losses.

Chasmolinker Jeez, I didn't get these notifications until now.

I have no idea how to play with the cycle lands. This deck takes so much life from its mana that I'm not planning on running cycle lands in here. In fact, I'm probably not going to play this deck anymore once Modern Horizons is legal. I'm going to drop back to some 3 color deck featuring Force of Negation . Either Grixis or Esper or something green. Probably Grixis.

Rise / Fall is a pet card of mine. It tends to hit lands and feel bad, but I've also done some sick lines with the Rise half of it. Such janky durdly card advatage.

Love Rise / Fall ! It's so good in Modern right now.

Did you see my grixis version linked in the Discussion? Rise / Fall (which has both bounce and discard) and Snapcaster Mage are probably the biggest benefits of blue. Thing in the Ice  Flip might be good. The other options seem ok, not great. We should probably only play bounce spells that are already great in their own right. We only have 4 copies of Waste Not. Having Waste Not AND discard along with our bounce spell is a 3-card combo that not only doesn't win the game, it only gives slight card advantage.

I wouldn't ever play Leyline of Anticipation unless it serves as a combo piece. Does adding the text "cast as though it had flash, discard a random card in your hand (to play Leyline)" make Thoughtseize better?

CaptSillva on Nicol Bolas' annoying bag of schemes

Seeing as how you seem to be going for Bolas flavor perhaps you could consider Hour of Devastation, Crux of Fate, Countersquall, Magmaquake, Neheb, the Eternal, Rakka Mar, and Soul Manipulation.

Other sweet value cards you could consider are Discovery / Dispersal, Rise / Fall, Connive / Concoct, Angrath, the Flame-Chained, Liliana's Specter, Rotting Rats, and Burglar Rat.
