Grixis Delver has a naturally painful land base and apart from the Delve fatties it relies a lot on grinding out matches for the win. Death's Shadow naturally fits in with this as I feel it provides a very useful late game threat as well as opening up the avenue of being active with discard via Thoughtseize/Inquisition of Kozilek rather than just reactive via Mana Leaks etc. Death's Shadow isn't a replacement for Delver of Secrets  Flip, it's an extra threat.

Based off this deck (hyperlinks don't work for some reason)

A lot of my current card choices are based off pieces I have, i.e. obviously run Scalding Tarns if you have them rather than Flooded Strands, and running 4x Thoughtseize is definitely viable. Tombstalker in the 3rd delve spot is a test at the moment but I have not been disappointed with the causing casting issues.

Also I think people are calling this Death's Delver.

Now I think I should repurpose my Grixis Delver into something like this! Looks awesome, and probably would be a contender for best deck in my local meta. Still a lot of Infect, which Grixis is usually perfect against, and this looks like it can outpace most strategies. Definitely one to keep a close eye on ;)

Well deserved +1
