Serum Visions Discussion

I think you would like 5 color control, you pretty much use a good and fair 5 color mana base, then put the best spells of the five colors. Path to Exile, Thoughtseize, Fatal Push, Inquisition of Kozilek, Dark Confidant, Lightning Bolt, Goblin Guide, Snapcaster Mage, Delver of Secrets Flip, Serum Visions, etc.

4x Selfless Spirit 2x Supreme Verdict is a great combo. Selfless can be sacrificed to make your spirits invulnerable and then you can boardwipe your enemy without losing your creatures. Spell Queller, Rattlechains, Geist of Saint Traft, Drogskol Captain, Lingering Souls, Intangible Virtue, Spectral Procession, Path to Exile, Serum Visions, Mana Leak, Spell Pierce, Journey to Nowhere and Ardent Plea are all good for a spirit deck.

I used to pla heartless together with Myr Retriever and had to have it early on as well.
In black there is also Shred Memory that can help find heartless

Hey AlwaysSleepy, I noticed that you added some cards. This is looking very similar to the Ad Nauseam deck in modern in the "dig" spells. Why did you add Sleight of Hand? Would you add Peer Through Depths? Why no Serum Visions? I noticed you removed Grim Tutor and added Everflowing Chalice, do you play it for 0 to increase the storm count?
Also, how do you play with Lion's Eye Diamond? I'm not sure how to make it work if you are discarding your hand.

It's simpler to play UB-control (tablesweep/counterspell/discard) and just keep the table clean from anything he might play, until you get to your wincon. More Damnation, Languish, and Yahenni's Expertise, less random steal effect. Also, bring a few Duress to get rid of graveyard hatred before it hits the table.
Psychic Intrusion seems really weak. The effect is spot on what you want, but it costs 5, and there is no quarantee that by the time you have the mana for playing it, your opponent has anything in hand, you would like to cast.
More manarocks, perhaps? It takes a while to get to those 7 mana where you can play Hedonist's Trove, but that could be done a bit faster. MindStone might be something. Or Talisman of Dominance. A full set of Serum Visions would help on finding your wincons.
You could splash white for Porphyry Nodes, and play Forbidden Orchard to keep nodes in play in case your opponent tries to starve it out by not playing creatures. At the same time, it's a 5color land, so it goes well with the rest of your deck. Also Ghostly Prison in white - good for not being attacked much. Or you could splash red for a card like Reforge the Soul, which both lets you dig for wincon/answers, and stocks your opponents GY. Also, smallscale sweepers like Pyroclasm.

Love it. Azorius Charm is one of my favorite multi-modal spells, because it's great tempo/stabilizing/card advantage. Try Lingering Souls over Spectral Procession if the latter becomes hard to cast with the WWW. I would also mainboard a couple more creatures over Invocation of Saint Traft, like Selfless Spirit. And finally, perhaps try Serum Visions, Dreamcatcher, or Anticipate or some other cantrip as a way to see if you can accelerate your draws into your win conditions.

I like the flavor of this deck. I feel that a lot of thought was put into it.
As far as advice: You need some fetches.Polluted Delta, Flooded Strand, Misty Rainforest, Scalding Tarn to really fuel Hedron Crab. At least consider Oboro, Palace in the Clouds, Terramorphic Expanse and/or Evolving Wilds for budget purposes.
4x Traumatize is too much. You only need three to statistically draw one a game for your wincon. A great strategy, but you're flooding your engine. To boot, you're running some dig with 4x Serum Visions, so 4x Traumatize seems a bit excessive. Too much of a good thing, ya know?
I believe you can do better than Void Shatter. Logic Knot can make use of those spells already in your GY. Mana Leak is a modern favorite that will work for games lasting ~5/6 turns. Remand is a personal favorite that replaces itself.
You'll need to have the fuel to keep pushing forward with mill should Traumatize be Extirpated, Surgical Extractioned, or removed/countered, in some other BS way. So I would cram another Hedron Crab in the MB in place of the 4th Traumatize; especially when considering the aforementioned lands.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

Grixis is one of my favorite color combinations and I think you got a good deck here.
Board Wipes are always needed to play against aggro decks so Languish is a good option
Also I don't see the point of using Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver here so you might take it out too.
Hope it helps you good luck!
