Pieguy396 on H: Jeskai Delver. W: Grixis ...

1 week ago

Hello, all! I recently decided (with some difficulty) that Grixis Delver would probably be better than the Jeskai Delver variant I've been playing the past while.

As such, I am looking to trade away the following cards from my Jeskai deck:

And I'm looking to trade for the following cards:

Unfortunately, if I don't get enough of a critical mass of offers, I won't be able to accept any of them, as it won't do me a lot of good to have half each of two decks lol.

Also, I have a binder that contains some of my other haves and wants, and I'm more than happy to make trades for cards not listed here.

Thanks in advance!

Deck looks good, although I would recommend trimming the fetch lands down a bit and adding more shocks, but only by 1-2.

I know that the fetchs play a large role for delve, but currently you only have 6 lands that tap for mana. You'll still have Street Wraith and Thought Scour to assist in building your graveyard and searching up your win cons. By adding another Steam Vents/Watery Grave or two, it will give you the extra mana to do some board control and sling some extra draws spells, which will help build your graveyard faster, while keeping the board clear for Gurmag Angler,and Death's Shadow to swing for damage.

But thats just my opinion, the deck still looks decent as is.

Your mana curve is far higher than your amount of lands can account for. I would consider adding more lands until you have around 38 or so. Is this a budget deck? If it's not, please consider

Cavern of Souls,Badlands,Underground Sea,Volcanic Island,Blood Crypt,Watery Grave,Steam Vents,Most Fetches, and Bojuka Bog. If you were to add these, either consider removing the bounce lands or add Amulet of Vigor to try to counteract the "enters tapped" clause.

Patriarch's Bidding seems under utilised here, try adding Entomb or Buried Alive to try and "cheat" in some big guys, you could also try Reanimate or Exhume.

I'd consider removing all 12 Shadowborn Apostles, as there are other ways to cheat things in like Omniscience or As Foretold, or, my favourite, Demon of Death's Gate

If you'd want some more "tribal" ideas, you could look through Angelic Devotion.

Take these over the guildgates

Drowned Catacomb
Glacial Fortress
Isolated Chapel

And you need these

Watery Grave

Hallowed Fountain

These are good too. You want as few come into play tapped lands as possible, but the scry lands are always good.

Sunken Ruins

Fetid Heath

Mystic Gate

Temple of Deceit

Temple of Enlightenment

Spell Pierce is weak in this format with things like Sol Ring

Dissipate is a direct improvement over Cancel
Absorb is a card and so is Countersquall

Sensei's Divining Top to go with your Counterbalance though I don't know how well counterbalance will work in EDH

Solemn Simulacrum

Serra Ascendant

Azorius Signet and Dimir Signet

Venser's Journal is a tossup if you want it or not

Supreme Verdict

Terminus

Damnation

Cyclonic Rift

Merciless Eviction

Wrath of God is a straight improvement over Day of Judgment

Vindicate

Hero's Downfall is a straight upgrade over Murder

Path to Exile

Swords to Plowshares

Sorin, Grim Nemesis

Wasteland

Strip Mine

Since you have some mana rocks. I think you could substitute all of your black mana with dual colored lands like Godless Shrine and Watery Grave It really depends upon your budget, but I would have about 8 basics of my most used color, and then 4-5 of the second and then substitute the rest with dual colored lands and specials like Cavern of Souls just so he doesn't get countered when casting.

Thanks for the suggestions, Aiding, it's much appreciated.

I actually think Contraband Kingpin is pretty important for the deck to be able to deal with aggro; as a 1/4 it can block basically all of the aggressive creature and most of them even when boosted by an Anthem effect and it doesn't just die to Lightning Bolt.

Similarly, I think you're underestimating Crystal Shard; it does a lot. It sort of blanks one of the opponent's lands, saves my creatures from removal or chump blocks, fulfils the requirement for revolt on Vengeful Rebel and gets repeated ETB triggers out of my creatures, which is important for grinding out victory in long games in a way that Vapor Snag can't replicate. That being said, I do think that 4 of them was too many, given how clunky they are in multiples.

Smother is a good suggestion, although I do think it's important to be able to kill higher CMC creatures because reanimator and Cloudpost decks are common occurrences, so I'll try out a split of Smother and Victim.

Bad River is almost strictly better than Evolving Wilds in the deck since it can fetch Watery Grave and they both give access to the mana the turn after they're played.

Skullclamp is banned in Legacy.

Wings of Velis Vel and Cairn Wanderer don't seem better than anything I'm already running as, respectively, a middling combat trick and a 4/4 for 5 that will occasionally have deathtouch/lifelink.
