Thought Scour is good but I dont have problems with milling, I just need some budget sideboard options

I think I like Slag Fiend here. Also I would put Galvanic Blast to 4 and Shrapnel Blast to two. A lot of your stuff makes you sacrifice artifacts, eventually you won't have any to sacrifice. Since you play Darksteel Citadel why not also Boom/Bust? Decent land destruction just adds more hate. I would highly recommend adding blue for Fabricate and Academy Ruins just to have some sort of recurrence with artifacts. You don't have any draw power so when your hand runs out that is it. Are there any decent draw engines for artifacts? Faithless Looting comes to mind. Blue also gives you decent draw power in general. Also access to Thought Scour to help mill yourself. I'm actually REALLY liking this idea. Would you mind if I made my own kind of version and then we can compare and whatnot? This is pretty cool in a jank kind of way.

Taclegod on Grix Is The Best

2 days ago my grixis list. with 4 Vision and no Jaces.If you remove the jaces you also don't need the the Thought Scour. it is coll to be abel to mill Ancestrall lategame and flashback them and not have to wait 4 turns but i don't think they deserv a spot, if you not trying to without turn 2 Tasigur.

I cut all Cryptic Command because so many 4/5 drops are to much. i'll recomand adding Spell Snare.

If you want to play the Grixis midrange version I would go up to 4 Jaces 3 snap and 1 or 2 GDD and would add more handdisruption. Also Collective Brutality is so damm good in burn or other agressiv matchups I would play at least one MB in all versions of Grixis.

Another Question: would you add Chandra, Torch of Defiance ? she seems really good for Grixis. I don't know what to cut for her. maybe the GDD

I've really liked Thought Scour, Serum Visions, Gitaxian Probe, and Hooting Mandrills in RUG. Sometimes, you end up with the nuts and you cast Hooting Mandrills on turn 2.

I don't think you have enough non-creature spells to get the most out of Monastery Swiftspear. I'm not sure if you'd want to cut Birds of Paradise, but there should be Arbor Elf or Voyaging Satyr or Kiora's Follower to go along with Utopia Sprawl.

As far as Polukranos, World Eater, I'd just cut them for more Primeval Titans and add more utility lands. Kessig Wolf Run, manlands,Cavern of Souls, Desolate Lighthouse, or even Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle are great additions to Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. That way, you can close out games because you have inevitable win conditions.

shesocold The reason Thought Scour is better than Mental Note is that thought scour does everything mental note does (it can make you mill 2 cards and draw a card) but it can also make an opponent mill if ever necessary. As a rule, if one card has the same cost and abilities as another except it can do something extra, it is immediately a better choice, even if that extra feature is useless to the theme of your deck.

jamesfiek, I think the reason for the more of Mental Note instead of Thought Scour is to help reach the thresholds.

Thought Scour is always better than Mental Note so you should have 4 thought and one note.
