Venser's Journal Discussion
20 hours ago
Jace's Ingenuity is probably superior to Pore Over the Pages, but unlikely what you're looking for. You might want Confirm Suspicions, since it might result in more card draw? But, I would probably go with Scroll of Origins, since, if you get it down early, it'll keep the cards flowing through the rest of the game.
It's unlikely they'll be very good here, but Descendant of Kiyomaro, and Kiyomaro, First to Stand are in your colors. What about Soramaro, First to Dream, Ivory Crane Netsuke and Empyrial Plate, or Kefnet the Mindful?

Welcome to Grixis Control! As a lifelong fan of Grixis control I can say you have a pretty decent deck list. However, I do have a few suggestions to offer.
I see you are running Exquisite Blood. Since you run Venser's Journal, I would also suggest running Sanguine Bond as a way to kill your opponents faster. Additionally, I would consider Necropotence for added card advantage and it partners nicely with the journal.
You seem to run a lot of top deck manipulation effects in Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain, Sleight of Hand and Read the Bones. I would recommend cutting some or all of those for tutors like Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Mystical Tutor or even some of the budget friendlier options such as Diabolic Revelation, Diabolic Tutor, and Dark Petition. Tutoring is a lot more effective for control in the commander environment since you are dealing with a 99 card singleton deck. If you want top deck manipulation I would suggest adding Sensei's Divining Top.
Lastly, I have a couple suggestions for your mass and targeted removal. I would definitely add Damnation to the list if it fits the budget. Additionally, Decree of Pain is wonderful in a control build where removal and card advantage are key. With this card you net both. You may also want to consider artifact board removal such as Nevinyrral's Disk and Oblivion Stone. For instant speed single target removal I recommend Terminate, Hero's Downfall and Crosis's Charm for added flexibility.
I hope you enjoy playing Grixis Control!

Hey, I had an Arcanis deck for a while - was a lot of fun. One card that would fit with your desire for lifegain as well as an additional no-max-hand-size effect is Venser's Journal. It's quite an investment at 5 mana but is worth considering. Also, Whir of Invention is a really great tutor here.

Venser's Journal looks great with Licia.

Take these over the guildgates
And you need these
These are good too. You want as few come into play tapped lands as possible, but the scry lands are always good.
Venser's Journal is a tossup if you want it or not

Unfortunately Leyline of Sanctity is too expensive and the ideia of this deck is to use cheap cards except Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Sigarda, Host of Herons hahahah but the idea of Ivory Mask is nice !!!
And yes....i know that i should use the set of the best fogs instead of Defend the Hearth but i dont like to use a lot of sets.....i know....its wrong.....buuut.....

Hello! Nice to see other Brion players!
Second suggestion: Neheb, the Eternal. This guy will work wonders for you and your pump effects. Say you have him out, attack with a 10/10 and hit an opponent. Neheb adds 10 red mana to your man pool. You pump up the 10/10 with Captive Flame and sack him to Brion, dealing 20 damage and gaining 20 life! This effect is only improved with ETB damage effects, more creatures attacking, and damage doublers!
That's all I have for you for now. I'd love it if you checked out my take on Brion... it's very different from yours but perhaps you'll have some good ideas for me! Happy flinging!
