YamishiTheWickedOne on The Fly and The Fish - Grixis Delver

2 days ago

Important question: do you have the budget for 3 Dark Confidant? That card is god tier. No honestly that card is Bolas tier. Bolas if he ate Emrakul tier.

An Idea I've been very curious about for a while is playing Grixis Delver as a softcore human tribal and abusing Cavern of Souls. Think about it, Delver of Secrets  Flip, Young Pyromancer, Monastery Swiftspear, Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Dark Confidant, Stormchaser Mage, Grim Lavamancer, Snapcaster Mage, Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip and Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip are ALL humans.

I'll think about Fevered Visions, it seems like a good draw spell that could help smooth out the deck's clunkier draws while damaging the opponent and triggering prowess. What do you suggest cutting for it? On the other hand, this deck really wants to play spells early- maybe Curious Homunculus  Flip if we are stuck on lands, but that's about it- and our payoffs late. One of the reasons this works is because we have such a high number of spells that draw us cards. Curious Homunculus  Flip and Bedlam Reveler, along with Rise from the Tides, all benefit from spells already cast, while Thermo-Alchemist and Stormchaser Mage only benefit from spells cast while they are on the battlefield- Weaver of Lightning is a necessary evil against token decks. You can only play so many creatures over spells until the consistency of your decks begins to suffer, and I wanted to play the ones that benefited from spells cast before they went on the battlefield, or shored up the deck's weaknesses- although I could see splitting/cutting Weaver of Lightning for Thermo-Alchemist.

Yahenni's Expertise actually doesnt kill Stormchaser Mage!

I think i'm going to try cutting the Thermo-Alchemist, for more stormchasers and things in the ice as the deck is certainly more control oriented and the stormchasers still apply evasive pressure thats harder to pick off, even if the damage potential is lower than thermo's

@rorofat thanks for your suggestions! I didn't even think about Stormchaser Mage when i created that deck! Since i did not buy the expensive cards in this deck i don't think i will buy Remand but i could try trading it from somewhere.

I would think Remand is better than Mana Leak in a tempo burn deck, you don't need to completely stop your opponent, just delay them till you burn them out, and Remand replaces itself for more gas. Chandra's Phoenix is pretty bad... Stormchaser Mage is probably better if you're looking for fliers, less mana. Usually bigger attack, and most importantly, doesn't die to Pyroclasm.

I play a lot of storm and personally I think the only creature that should be in a storm deck is Goblin Electromancer with maybe an exception for Mizzix of the Izmagnus I would highly recommend removing Stormchaser Mage and maybe reducing the number of Thermo-Alchemist cards. Thing in the Ice  Flip can also be very useful in a storm deck, but good storm decks should be able to win by turn 6, 9 in 10 games so its not as needed.

Re: mrmango

Why would you prefer Shock?

I can see the ability to hit face as the only reason to take it over Galvanic Bombardment. In that case, I think it comes down to playstyle. When I play this deck, I find myself playing it more as a mid-range deck that utilizes burn spells to control the board while pinging for incremental damage with Thermo-Alchemist, swinging with Thing in the Ice  Flip or Stormchaser Mage, or shocking with Fevered Visions to win the game.

With this playstyle, I value the ability to burn away progressively larger creatures over the ability to deal 2 to face.

Definitely want Fevered Visions here. Great for when you're trying to cast multiple, cheap spells per turn. Thermo-Alchemist also works with that strategy. Stormchaser Mage isn't bad either.
