It's different I swear...

Ok, not that different.

It only makes sense that the Grixis Mage makes a Grixis EDH deck. It's the color combo I started in, and it finally came down to it. All it took was acquiring a copy of Mind Seize to have a suitable Commander.

So the plan of the deck is to make you draw...a lot.

I like stuff like Nekusar, the Mindrazer + Sigil of Sleep or anything else that triggers on damage. I don't want to have too many as it could potentially be a lot of card disadvantage, but the few I have do their job.

So, the plan is to be a good old free for all group-slug, that wants to cast wheel effects and copy them with discard/draw damage engines on the board. I will probably make myself some enemies with this but that's ok. I'm always looking for ways to make it stronger, obviously some staples need to be tracked down. Specifically Mana Crypt at this time. Also I'm trying to acquire the ABUR duals to make the manabase work.

I’m pretty much happy with where this deck is at the moment, but suggestions are welcomed and definitely appreciated. Thanks!

I really want to make this deck as competitive as possible. Because of my obsession with fast land I tend to get targeted early on. I need to essentially be the Archenemy and I would love to play this deck as one.

The cards I need to complete this deck are Mana Crypt, Underground Sea, Badlands, Volcanic Island.

I really enjoy this deck. It makes me a target but has inevitability, so even if they mess with my early game pieces I can still rely on wheeling with Leoric out for a good amount of damage.

From the journal of King Leoric himself...

  • We have just arrived in Tristram, and I must say I'm a bit dismayed. This place is a backwater filled with serfs and an ancient, broken-down monastery, hardly fit for the king of Khanduras! I cannot fathom why Lazarus was so intent on this becoming our new seat of power.

  • A fetid, pallid malaise has fallen over the manor we now call home. Young Albrecht seems to be enjoying himself in our new home, however. Perhaps I am simply suffering from an imbalance of humors brought on by the recent change of clime.

  • I am convinced that some malevolent being is attempting to wrest control of my thoughts away from me. Voices direct me to horrendous acts, and there are times when I seem unable to control my body. Lazarus knows; this is certain. He looks at me strangely when he thinks me otherwise disposed.

  • Though my council begs me to reconsider, I will continue with the executions of those I find guilty of plotting against the kingdom. Perhaps they fear my eye will fall on them and discover their heinous, treasonous plans as well. Lazarus is the only one I can still trust.

  • I have finally rid myself of the dark influence seeking to subdue me, and now I see things as they truly are. This conspiracy among the insolent townsfolk to weaken me by stealing Albrecht away will not stand! Perhaps the heads of their women and children on pikes will bring them clarity...
