thanks weezle101 ! Yes, I saw kroxa since its spoiler and went "holy crap this has to go in my list!" it's super powerful and force your opponent to go with some GY hate. I've also think about The Royal Scions maybe if I cut Sarkhan, it would be for them.

I playtest a lot lately, mainly on cockatrice so if you see "Zuzur" don't hesitate to ping me ;)

Super sweet list. My friend plays a lot of Grixis control and we've speculated on Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger since it came out. Everyone has been overreacting about Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath so it's good to see the stronger of the two finally get it's time to shine. I've played lots of Esper control sometimes splashing red for The Royal Scions and the card is much stronger in reality than it looks like it would be on paper. I'm not quite convinced on Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker yet but I played it back in the day and it does seem playable. This list is super spicy so dm me if you need any playtest help. I know what it's like to play on a budget, I'm still in high school and fetches don'y buy themselves.

Heliod, Keeper of the Sun

Legendary Enchantment Creature - God

Indestructible, Flash

When Heliod enters the battlefield, if you didn't cast it on your turn exile all other creatures with converted mana cost 3 or less.

Heliod, Keeper of the Sun can't attack or block unless your devotion to white is five or greater.


Technically I got ninja'd, but technically the challenge issued was a wildcard so I'm good.

So apparently in War of the Spark, Jace and Vraska did the dirty deed.

Make a Sultai Planeswalkers pair like The Royal Scions for Jace and Vraska. Zesty bonus points if it represents both sides of their control, mind and body (turning to stone).

Either make it a 3 ability Planeswalker with a static ability or a 4 ability Planeswalker with no static ability.

Vash98, this deck seems to be off to a good start, but 35 lands is rather low for EDH; I would recommend 38 to 40 lands, so that you can reliably draw them without experiencing mana flooding. Also, on the subject of lands, unless you have a limited monetary budget, I would recommend better lands than what you currently have, such as the shocklands or filter lands.

What role do Kasmina and The Royal Scions play in this deck?

Also, if you were to copy Apocalypse Hydra with Riku, the value of X in the copy would be 0, so the copy would enter the battlefield with no +1/+1 counters on it, unless some other effect granted it such counters.

I like your idea of the Arclight Phoenix deck, keep the Phoenix's alive! I guess Crackling Drake is kinda obsolete now. Have you thought about Ox of Agonas or The Royal Scions?

The blue is for Tribal Flames. At that point, I think it just makes sense to take advantage and use some SB slots for countermagic, but I've actually been thinking a lot about cutting The Royal Scions as you suggest so there's less tension in the maindeck prioritizing your 4th-most important color (between U and W).

I'm not really sure what I'd replace Scions with, and I'd like to test them a bit more to see how good they really are, but ideally that slot would be something that can a) push past blockers & b) mitigate flood. Do you have any suggestions?

As for Disdainful Stroke the #1 target is Primeval Titan, but I like that the card has a lot of other matchup applications (like Tron).

Why is this list running blue? I mean, you could definitely cut The Royal Scions and Disdainful Stroke (is that a Tron hate card??) and save the strain on your mana base.

Hearing it out makes me feel better about it. I would like to see this in action. Seems like it could be fun (for you) My Arena tag is the same as it is here. Feel free to friend me on there. You can usually find me on around 8 or 9 in the evenings after I get my kids to sleep. I have an aggro deck that has been rollin lately, which might make an interesting match-up Torbran's Revenge

Those decks you mention on Arena give me trouble too. Mayhem Devil / Cat decks and Simic ramp decks love to give me fits.

As for my Grixis Fires This deck has gone through a lot of changes. This is where I am at now. Narset did get traded out for The Royal Scions. Not only because Narset dumps all my Fae's and lands in the graveyard, but also because I found she is hard to keep alive. She was often only able to replace herself before dying. The Scions are sticky, and if you can get them built up, they pay-off is legit. One card that may be great for this deck is Chandra, Acolyte of Flame Not only can she recast your Role Reversals and Dismissals, but you can also trade away 1/1 elementals that are going to die at the end of the turn, which seems like fun.
