Thats a great point about Spectral Procession. Have you considered Thought Scour? It fuels Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Murderous Cut, Snapcaster Mage, and can even put Lingering Souls into your graveyard. Might be worth looking into. Gives you a solid reason to keep blue in the deck and can give you a turn 2 tassigur.

TheAlexGnan on Cryptic vs Kolaghan's

Hey guys I know I'm not supposed to play control in this meta yada yada, but I am, and its working pretty damn well, BUT:

A big part of the deck (The Perfect Balance (Grixis Primer)) evolves around Snapcaster Mage getting x-for-1s combined with the two commands: Cryptic Command and Kolaghan's Command.

Now, do you agree with a 3-3 split or would you go 4-kolaghans, 2-cryptic. Or drop cryptic and go 4-kolaghans command and mainboard a wrath? Or something else?

Another way of looking at it: Would you top off your mana-curve with a reactive spell (granted, arguably the best reactive spell there is)?

Kolaghan's Command is a great card against affinity and can win you the game there, and it creates insane value when bringing snappy back.

Cryptic Command is just as versatile, but in a different way.

So, if you had to chose a certain ratio between the two, what would it be considering the decklist above and the current meta?

Maybe up on the control route by replacing some meh creatures by Gifts Ungiven and adding Snapcaster Mages or reanimator spells?

RamblinMan - Pia and Kiran Nalaar is a creature that has great value, creating 4 power and toughness across 3 bodies. A lot of the time you can lose games because your Tasigur, the Golden Fang gets Path to Exile of something similar and you don't have an answer for it. Eventually you run out of wincons. The parents give you some reach by providing threats across multiple bodies, and can provide a small amount of removal against Affinty and Naya Zoo.

ToolmasterOfBrainerd - I agree that Grixis control can be very well positioned against the Eldrazi deck, I've even considered picking up a Painter's Servant for the matchup considering I don't have to dedicate sideboard slots to twin anymore. Crumble to Dust is also a fairly effective card in the matchup to get rid of Eye of Ugin and Eldrazi Temple. I can look at picking up a Damnation, but it is super expensive so it might take some time before I can do such. Also the main reason for the Cryptic Commands in the deck is due to a lack of Snapcaster Mages.

ToolmasterOfBrainerd Aretherk go nuts.
From the three playtesting games I did with this deck... it seems like it could really use some cmc = 3 card which is both a win-con and powerful in a non infinite scenario. Preferably it would be a creature so I can hit it with CoCo. Not Myr Welder. Something like Dimir Guildmage or Snapcaster Mage but at . Snapcaster Mage fills that slot for the slot, because in a non infinite scenario he's good, but with infinite mana if I hit him with a coco, he can give coco flashback and then dig for more creatures, like another snapcaster or superions. Trinket Mage did that for The Architect of Oz but I am trying to move away from small artifacts since the point of this deck is to be more creature based and to move away from small artifacts so as not to get blown out by Stony Silence. While it isn't fool-proof against Stony Silence, my initial idea is to cut the staff, add Walking Archive as a one of mainboard, and then maybe add a Blue Sun's Zenith back into the main-board. Not sure I like this though. In fact I'm almost sure there is something better out there, but I don't have the time tonight to find it. That or I could just add BSZ back mainboard but again, I am sure there is a better alternative out there. I just have to find it.

PixelAlex on Blinking is good for you. Ask Dr. Venser

thx Epidilius for your answers (and sorry for rewriting so late).
Anyway i feel that Isochron Scepter does the job for me since i only use 2CMC spells and i would much rather play them more often than once. Also if the Sceptre is on the field i don't really need to wory about Restoration Angel IMO since i most likely have another blink-effect in hand or i can just use the sceptres effect. HOWEVER since artifact hate is so common in sideboards (see Stony Silence) i think Snapcaster Mage makes a great sideboard option for anyone with the cash.
Next is Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. I really don't want to make this a splinter-twin deck, since i don't think it is valuable anymore since the bann of Splinter Twin and the other red cards just aren't worth the splash for me.

Thx for your help though and i would appreciate more cool ideas for the deck to think about :)

JWiley129, yeah it would be better for them to reprint Liliana of the Veil or Snapcaster Mage to keep it fair.

Maybe even Black Lotus.

EndStepTop, I guess I did not pay attention to the final builds. Snapcaster Mage seemed like an option for Twin, rather than an essential card, one that might help some builds but not always. I am guessing that the recent winners were all using 4x playsets of Snapcaster Mage. Is that correct?
