Scroll of Griselbrand Discussion

TypicalTimmy on Card creation challenge

Scallywallwest, it almost sounds like your people worship the Eldrazi and seek to spread their influence. So, a "Scroll of Sacry" kind of feels like it'd be similar in nature to the Scroll of Avacyn and Scroll of Griselbrand.

Scroll of Emrakul


, Sacrifice Scroll of Emrakul: Return a card you control in exile to your hand. If you control an Eldrazi, target opponent exiles a card from their hand.

Words that which the blind fear, telling of horrors that make death appealing.

This is going to be an incredibly hard challenge: Take your favorite deck you have (in person, online, being built, etc) and make a single Legendary Creature that represents it.

  • "So make a Commander that would run it?"

No. Take the entire deck as a single entity and turn that into a creature. An Avatar - specifically.

For example, my Rakdos Minotaur Midrange deck functions in three core facets: Instant-speed spot removal, extremely strong tribal synergy, attacking relentlessly and without mercy. So, it might see something such as:

Mekarth, Disemboweler of the Weak

Legendary Creature - Minotaur Avatar

Other Minotaur creatures you control get +1/+1 and have haste.

Whenever a Minotaur you control attacks, it gets +2/+0 and gains menace until end of turn.

Whenever a non-token Minotaur you control attacks, create a 2/3 red Minotaur creature token. It enters the battlefield tapped and attacking.

, : Destroy target creature. If it was legendary, untap Mekarth.


Don't worry about if the card is broken or not - This is representing an entire deck. Break the hell out of it ;)

Luxxis7, thank you for the suggestion! I'm honestly not too sure at this point; Scroll of Griselbrand is excellent as a free ' Shrieking Affliction ' trigger and can be used to tap for Herald of Anguish 's 'Improvise' before being activated. I will playtest and see how it goes in place of Necrogen Spellbomb . Let me know how you go too!

Hey, so I've tried making a build like this myself, since it seems pretty spicy. Have you considered Scroll of Griselbrand over Necrogen Spellbomb ? It could be another 3 damage or would you prefer the flexibility of card draw?

In the world of instant-speed discard, I think it's necessary to mention the activated abilities of Scroll of Griselbrand and Necrogen Spellbomb. Both single-card, opponent's choice cards, but they're out there.

Hope of Ghirapur as a recurable Xantid Swarm but the effect may not be strong enough to warrant a slot.

Lotus Bloom and Lion's Eye Diamond sound really strong. Maybe too conditional.

Removal in the form of Triangle of War and Universal Solvent, Unstable Obelisk

Salvaging Station package including Wayfarer's Bauble, Pyxis of Pandemonium, Tormod's Crypt cantrips Chromatic Sphere, Chromatic Star, Barbed Sextant, Lodestone Bauble, Mishra's Bauble, Implement of Ferocity, Phyrexian Furnace/Scrabbling Claws, Scroll of Griselbrand, Terrarion, Urza's Bauble spellbombs Horizon Spellbomb, Lifespark Spellbomb, Necrogen Spellbomb, Nihil Spellbomb

Sylvan Scrying and and Crop Rotation are significantly worse without Gaea's Cradle, Dryad Arbor and Ancient Tomb (Temple of the False God should do a decent impression. The grindy Crucible of Worlds package would be better suited to a staxier gameplan

I think Bedlam Reveler would be awesome as a few copies. Not only is he on point with the theme, but his cost can be significantly be reduced by Rakdos, Lord of Riots. Drawing 3 cards when you're on top-deck mode, with the cost reduction offered by Rakdos, Lord of Riots allows you to potentially play 4 more creatures that turn. The only problem of course is that your deck plays few Instants/Sorceries. I would exchange Scroll of Griselbrand for another set of Instants/Sorceries in this case.

Full Moon's Rise instead of some of those non modern cards...

Descendants' Path , Scroll of Avacyn , Scroll of Griselbrand , Nova Chaser might be nice. Maybe Runed Stalactite if you add any non changeling creatures. idk.

out of all of these, i think rise and path are the best
