Oh, right. Back to the topic.
I think the Mardu list makes better use of the Scepter. There isn't really anything in the Grixis list that would make me want to sideboard in Pithing Needle and name "Isochron Scepter". That Mardu list is a different story, because if I know you have Silence and Isochron Scepter in your deck, I'm bringing in needles and artifact hate.

Haze of Pollen is better than Commencement of Festivities. I think you need some more main deck cards to improve your noncreature matchups like control and combo, it seems like a really bad matchup game 1. Silence is amazing on Isochron Scepter, and you could try out Mana Tithe too (likely not that great, but I like it and no one ever plays around it).
I don't really like Baird and Platinum Angel in your deck. Baird is redundant and costly, and without a way to cheat it out or tutor it Angel isn't worth it, especially since removal is gonna build up in your opponent's hand throughout the game. I also question the Birds of Paradises; you don't really need to ramp into things quickly since you have fogs. In their place something like Howling Mine to find more fogs and hit land drops would be better.
I suggest testing out the Silence/Scepter lock plan, it's pretty fun.

get rid of lava spike and put in Exquizid Firecraft! I`d also putSilence to fight off your opponents counter spells and Deflecting Palm to fight against infect with hexproof- into your side- or even maybe-board! its worked for me-Just say'n!!!

Also consider Windfall, Timetwister, Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain, Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Rapid Hybridization, Pongify, Dismember, Into the Roil, Blink of an Eye, Toxic Deluge, Grasp of Fate, Dispel, Mindbreak Trap, Spell Pierce, Remand, or Silence, they are all great esper control cards, and different packages of them lead to a very strong control build, but should be tuned for your meta accordingly!
Good luck my friend!

Thanks for the upvote! I haven't updated this one in a while. I'd probably cut out Austere Command and put in Settle the Wreckage in place of Wrath of God (or in addition to), and find room for Silence, which is powerful for slowing your opponents' early turns.

Hello everyone! Thanks for the comments and upvotes! Been away at a summer camp all summer so I have a lot to catch up on!
Onigma Good thoughts and questions!
The ramp helps. The deck relies a lot on F&S so I want them out ASAP, and all the ramp helps with the recastablility of my commander as well. Then the ramp can help fuel my X-spells when Neheb or T-Ogre aren't around, insuring I don't have a dead X-Spell in my hand.
My deck is built this way intentionally. Mainly because I want to utilize Sunforger to the max. It's risky because the deck isn't as effective as it could be, but man when I equip Sunforger with RW open, I can take over the game.
I like the incremental lifegain because it buys me time to find my big bombs. It stabilizes my life total even after early aggression, allowing me to live into the late game to recast my commander and then play a big X-spell.
Thanks for the thoughts! I liked your deck :)
Eklipse87 All great cards that have been cut to make room for other things. The Paradox Engine + Isochron Scepter combo I'm still trying to figure out if I like and what to cut for it.
FiddlerTheDrum good cards, but too expensive. I'm pretty content with my ramp and draw at the moment.
Aerugo Thanks for all the ideas!
- Radiate is a pet card :) and I don't have the scepter in yet...
- Mind's Eye is just sub par in my opinion. I'm content with the draw I have currently
- Grand Abolisher is nice but I don't need him for my meta
- Ghirapur Orrery Is a no. Can't help my opponents like that. And I'm rarely hellbent due to good draw and conservative playing of instant speed removal, fogs, and redirects.
- Kher Keep is nice I'll consider it!
- Mana Tithe and Silence just aren't really my style :)
Glad you could find some inspiration! Thank you!
Oh hello thijmnesoy! Yes this deck is very similar to Neheb! I love both but Neheb will always be my baby :)

Cards I dont Like: Consuming Vapors Disrupt Decorum Silence Patron of the Vein Bloodlord of Vaasgoth Dark Impostor Value cards I Like: Sun Titan Bishop of Rebirth Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet Deflecting Palm Sanctum Seeker Indulgent Aristocrat Forerunner of the Legion
Sweepers=1, I will pull a couple more tonight. Might want to have 3-4 in this deck. Card Draw = 5. A little low, add Champion of DuskFaithless LootingAsylum Visitor Targeted Removal =9 Seems good Ramp = 4. Again really low, I will look for some options for this.
The biggest thing missing is one or two more unconditional sac outlets. I will see what I have for options.
Generic Template I use for planning: 10 Mana Ramp 10 Card Draw 5 Targeted Removal 5 Board Wipes 38 Land 25 Standalone 10-12 Enhancer 7-8 Enabler
