Imagine a world where you can dome your opponent for up to 6 and make them discard 2, all for 3 mana, while keeping a value engine going, dragging up removal, reach, and annoying, sticky creatures from the graveyard. Well, this is that world.

Grixis Surprise (The Skelement of Surprise) is a prototype for a fast, aggressive deck that utilizes Lightning Skelemental and 2-for-1s like Dreadhorde Arcanist and Snapcaster Mage to generate card advantage and take over the game with efficient, low-costed threats.
