Should probably add at a minimum 5 more lands, preferably 7.

Some other cool Rashmi stuff:

Mind's Dilation

Sensei's Divining Top

Regrowth>Recollect

Krosan Grip>Nature's Claim?

Fetchlands can help reset the top of your deck with card like Oracle and Courser of Kruphix

Vesuva for the mana base?

Maybe Sensei's Divining Top to smooth out draws.

Ah, OK. My Path to Exilefoil icon is the newest FNM art, the one pictured here. I think that for the Rebecca Guay art, you need to use

[[Path to Exile *F* (000)]]

Which comes out as this: Path to Exilefoil icon

In any case, how about Scalding Tarn and Sensei's Divining Top for your 3x Bloodstained Mire, Wurmcoil Engine, and World Breaker?

Also, just to give you a heads-up, the Top has some very slight wear around the edges on the back; I'm happy to send you high-res pics if you'd like.

Vesuva for the mana base.

Maybe Contagion Engine for proliferate and as a board wipe.

Thanks for your suggestions, AlmightyTentacle!

You've definitely suggested a ton of cards that I either want to test out or already have, so thanks for that! :)

When it comes to card draw, I really haven't experienced many issues. You are correct that I don't have a ton, but keep in mind that I do have tutors/cheaters that essentially are card draws for the specific cards needed.

  • Herald’s Horn is one that I was pretty excited for when I saw it got spoiled. It'll definitely get tested!

  • Grenzo, Havoc Raiser was a card that I tested out before, but ended up passing on him. He might be worth testing out again though!

  • Mikokoro, Center of the Sea will definitely need to be tested. I've honestly overlooked this one, but it can definitely be handy.

  • As for Sensei's Divining Top, it unfortunately is banned in Duel Commander. Same goes for Mana Crypt and Sol Ring.

  • Ancient Tomb was actually just recently unbanned in Duel, so I will definitely -1 Mountain for it.

  • I would love to run Imperial Recruiter, but there is no way that I can spend that kinda money...maybe someday though!

  • Gamble will need to be tested. I hated the idea that I could be forced to pitch what I tutored, but mono-red doesn't really get any better tutors, haha.

The Control & Others category are pretty much all previous inclusions or considerations. I end up not needing the redundancy with some of these cards as much as one would think because most games are won by around turn 8 at the latest.

As for your recommended cuts, I agree with some of them.

Again though, thanks so much for your comment! I will be testing out some of these and seeing what works most efficiently! :)

Hi, freakingShane

First of all I really like your Purhporos goblin tribal deck!

As you mentioned your deck is built to be closer to a 1 vs 1 Commander (French) deck, but still I want to suggest you some of the cards for more multiplayer game strategy that imho I think you should consider to add.

Analizing your deck I see some problems in too low count of draw engines. I think you need to maximize draw power cuz in current state after several board whipes you just be run out of gas.

Card advantage:

Ramp:

  • Mana Crypt - expensive but cost all its money.

  • Ancient Tomb - nice land, cut mountain for it.

  • Herald’s Horn - was mentioned before.

Tutors:

  • Imperial Recruiter - I know it is expensive card but it can tutor 80% of all your creatures!

  • Gamble - saves me hundred of times! Offcorse it has drawback and you can discard what you was looking for, but still it is best tutor in red color.

Control & Others:

Cards I think you need to cut out:

P.S. Sorry for some grammar mistakes it was hell of amount of text to type ;-P

It's not that it's too slow but it would work best when I bounce Palinchron or play Sensei's Divining Top like a hundred times. But by the time I play those repetitive spells I win so it seems unneeded. Thanks for the suggestion though. It's a cool card. I hadn't even seen it yet.

Welcome to Grixis Control! As a lifelong fan of Grixis control I can say you have a pretty decent deck list. However, I do have a few suggestions to offer.

I would cut the Obelisk of Grixis for a Gem of Becoming. It is a lot better to hit your land drops with a control deck than to ramp when you are already running the signets and Darksteel Ingot.

I see you are running Exquisite Blood. Since you run Venser's Journal, I would also suggest running Sanguine Bond as a way to kill your opponents faster. Additionally, I would consider Necropotence for added card advantage and it partners nicely with the journal.

You seem to run a lot of top deck manipulation effects in Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain, Sleight of Hand and Read the Bones. I would recommend cutting some or all of those for tutors like Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Mystical Tutor or even some of the budget friendlier options such as Diabolic Revelation, Diabolic Tutor, and Dark Petition. Tutoring is a lot more effective for control in the commander environment since you are dealing with a 99 card singleton deck. If you want top deck manipulation I would suggest adding Sensei's Divining Top.

Lastly, I have a couple suggestions for your mass and targeted removal. I would definitely add Damnation to the list if it fits the budget. Additionally, Decree of Pain is wonderful in a control build where removal and card advantage are key. With this card you net both. You may also want to consider artifact board removal such as Nevinyrral's Disk and Oblivion Stone. For instant speed single target removal I recommend Terminate, Hero's Downfall and Crosis's Charm for added flexibility.

I hope you enjoy playing Grixis Control!
