Primal Amulet Control (Grixis)

Standard*

Maikeruu


Description

testing around with a control deck using the power of primal amulet.

The amulet can reduce the cost of all your powerful spells, alongside having the amulet flip is absolutely broken in this deck, not only does it double your removal spells you can also double Ribbons for a huge finisher or some burn to the face can really add up too, not to mention we have a scarab god to help reanimate the opponents creatures in their yard!

The grixis removal suite is super strong right now, some numbers of my spells are subject to change once i get testing - but this is the first draft of the deck I will be playing in the new standard.

Yes, I certainly will. I've been playing a Grixis control deck in Standard and only have a few more days with it... so I will need to update it accordingly. I really like this build and think I'm going to do something similar. I will share my ideas when I do!

Maybe consider adding a win con that plays with the amulet. I like Torment of Hailfire but I bet there are others you can look into.

Well i run 2 cut // ribbons which are a really good way to do a torment of hailfire style win at the mid-late game. Can easily smash in for a 15+ damage at that point from the ribbons. Plus drawing this early vs the torment it can deal 4 damage to a creature and not be a dead card.

Yeah I neglected to read your ribbons explanation initially. Good point.

I like the base of this deck a lot, but I also forsee Carnage Tyrant as a huge weakness that all control decks will have, and this deck doesn't really have an answer for it. I think Torment of Hailfire, Bontu's Last Reckoning, and/or Harsh Scrutiny should be seriously considered in your deck.

That actually makes a lot of sense. Changed the sweltering sun's in the sideboard for Bontu's Last Reckoning. As it should still be a good card Vs. Heavy creature decks like sweltering sun's is plus then it'll hit the hexproof dino :) thanks.
