Stern Proctor Discussion

Thalakos Deceiver is pretty good as a budget replacement for Cytoplast Manipulator they both fill the same function but the manipulator gives you a few advantages. Primarily that she can do her job without ever attacking (ie on other people's turns) and while you're on the throne.
Stern Proctor is a good option as a "flicker-able" target which can help you get rid of a problem enchantment temporarily or set you up for counter magic. I think he would require a bit of work to get good use from as he doesn't have his own counter generation aside from attacks and he is only a temporary fix, though he is one of our very limited options for this problem. there's no reason you can't run him, but i prefer going the unstable obelisk rout as it gives me a little more flexibility. feel free to include him in your deck list as needed.
Aura Thief will depend on your meta. a lot of times gaining control of all enchantments indiscriminately isn't super helpful / doesn't fix the problem. for example Oblivion Ring. for me it isn't as helpful. if you're in a meta where there's someone running a bunch of anthems or pillow fort effects or whatever he is definitely a great include. I would add him in a heartbeat if my meta shifts that way.

Grixis' lack of responses to Enchantments can be overwhelming, what are your thoughts on Aura Thief and Stern Proctor? I also found a gem when looking through older cards, Thalakos Deceiver may have a spot here, attack, sac, take creature, recurse, repeat.
