Description

Grixis delver list. Stick a threat, protect that threat and make sure your opponent doesn't kill you first basically. That's the deck in a nutshell.

Updates

I now have 2 Scalding Tarn , which I put in over Misty Rainforest . I have also added 2 Fulminator Mage in the sideboard as a way to beat tron, or eldrazi tron, or scapeshift ECT.

Ayyy I recently picked up Grixis Delver myself. I haven't been playing the deck for very long, but I've been playing decks like it for a little while now. Finally found my love for going under the radar with cheap threats and cantrips. Rip Gitaxian Probe.

I only have one pretty brutal piece of advice, which breaks my heart a little. I wouldn't play the deck without Scalding Tarn. While it may seem like a small detail, I only picked mine up last month and you have NO IDEA how many matches I lost prior for having a sub-par manabase. Being able to fetch for t1 bolt OR t1 snare painlessly is immensely important in a deck with an admittedly greedy manabase, especially in an aggro matchup since the deck has no way of gaining life.

Also, this is more a personal preference thing, but I'm pretty jihad against Young Peezy. I think he's insanely overrated, but most lists that win seem to run a couple of him, so what do I know. I prefer Clique and Kalitas in that slot. It's also worth mentioning that YP is a lot worse with probe gone RIP. Again, it's a personal thing. I encourage you to test things out and find what you like for yourself.

Anyway good luck dude, hope you like the deck

Yeah not having Scalding Tarn is super painful but I already have misty rainforest around and don't have the extra money to spend on 4 (very good) lands.

I am personally a fan of YP, there's quite a few matchups where it is really relevant (nothing feels better than chaining 3-4 cantrips in the late game) However without Gitaxian Probe it seems kind of weak. I would assume that the deck wouldn't want to run Kalitas seeing as it's a 4 mana spell in a deck of tight mana and one drops but I see the argument for it. I might run a Vendilion Clique to increase the number of threats, however.

I'm getting to play the deck for the first time at FNM tomorrow so hopefully I can get a feel for how good Young Pyromancer is.
