Grixis Ensoul




This is my "primer" of my frontier deck. Of course any and all suggestions are mighty helpful. Up votes much appreciated!

Preface The as the "Affinity" of frontier,This deck is designed to use super efficient artifact synergies to beat down and burn out your opponents! I know it's all over mtg goldfish but try and belive me when I say that I love this deck and I've been playing with the idea ever since it was in standard.

Right let's cut to the chase, the name sake of the deck is of course Ensoul Artifact and the newer addition of Tezzeret's Touch, so we need some targets.


Starting at the bottom of the curve, is Ornithopter. This flying wonder machine is such an amazing thing for 0 mana. It starts the deck on it's turn 4 clock, seeing as it's able to swing for 5 on turn 2

After playtesting it on here I feel you pay too much life to fix your mana. When I first began my build I used Tomb of the Spirit Dragon to recover some life. I've also seen it played in sideboards. There is also Inventors' Fair which I've settled on.

Thanks for play testing! I've found in my testing that having the turn 4 win is more important than the 2-3 life lost through Spire of Industry because it taps for colorless, which is most of the deck, and the Spirebluff Canal certainly works for u/r mana. I will definitly consider one or two Tomb of the Spirit Dragon, what should I cut for it?

I'm not a fan of Aether Hub in decks that don't take advantage of the energy mechanic. You only really need one Tomb so you won't need to cut much.

Right, still the ability to produce any color once has been working, and for consistancies sake, the tomb takes up our turn three witch is one of the deck's really big power turns. Another consistency issue is I would never want to see more than one, but could always use one in multiple situations.
