OneWinged on Silent Scepter

Yeah, adding card draw that also synergizes with the Scepter seems like a good path to go. I have searched quite a bit and found some interesting choices: Manamorphose, Hallowed Moonlight, Shadow of Doubt, Azorius Charm.

As for not running red, I could consider that, but Lightning Helix seems so good on the Scepter considering the amount of fetchlands and shocklands. I would need to investigate if running UW is actually more consistent though.

I love your take on mill. Especially the foiling! I’ve always wanted to play Shadow of Doubt. How does it feel?

Yo sam171z, so I took a quick take on your decklist. In the general sense, how competitive/tuned do you want your list to go to?

Like in all deck building, what theme do you want to go for and how much of a budget are you willing to spend to get the results? For Grixis decks they rely essentially on a lot of rocks to get you to accelerate faster.

Here are some cards that I use that are staples in competitive deck building in Grixis colors. Feel free to ask for more specifics on how ya wanna deck build, huge advocate on helping people tune their list to their own sense of style on what you want to do.

Some cards that are tribal-esque:

In regards to your question on how I would build the deck, hmm I would probably go more towards a control/steal theme with maybe a small bit of reanimator package. There is quite a bit of things you can do, there are some combos you can run that would mesh well with the pirate theme. Like both Dockside Extortionist and Cloudstone Curio can net you infinite mana (provided your opponents have enough artifacts/enchantments to negate the cost of recasting) or you can do some synergies with Glint-Horn Buccaneer and Curiosity combo which can be fun. But that's how I would build it, feel free to ask if ya have any more questions~

That's a whole lot of Tectonic Edge in a deck that wants to cast Vendilion Clique , Abrupt Decay , Liliana of the Veil , and Shadow of Doubt . Not to mention I'm pretty sure Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin both outperform Tec Edge most of the time.

Sweet! Gracias, I'll tell you the reasoning I originally had behind strip mine, shadow of doubt, and capsize. Then I'll remove em and test your suggestions

Exploration + Life from the Loam and Strip Mine are their own win conditions. This combo sees regular play in Vintage. But I only was able to pull this off once, so yeah a mana vault would def help with the Razaketh way of infinite mana instead

Shadow of Doubt is admittedly meta dependent. The floor of this card is that it's a flexible, instant cantrip for 2. Hitting fetches is okay,the reason I put it in was to hitting Protean Hulk , Gamble , Pattern of Rebirth . Even if its in my graveyard, someone will give it back to me to use with tasigur when an opponant tutors. I just haven't had it in hand or graveyard yet lol. Maybe people dont play enough of them to warrant it

Capsize is literally another wincon with infinite mana. That said, I think I already took it out for something I forgot of, maybe Ensnaring Bridge . So you're right on the money there. Will try out exsanguinate instead before next week
