Grixis Phoenix? Deck help

Modern Deck Help forum

Posted on Sept. 10, 2019, 1:18 p.m. by SeekerofSecrets

So I had R Phoenix before the banning and sense then I've been looking for something to do with them. It occurred to me that Tome Scour fits really well with Arclight Phoenix and Gurmag Angler . Unfortunately just 4 targets is not consistent enough to run but then I thought about Bloodghast .

Here's what I've come up with Grixis Bird

This is just a rough rough draft done with very little testing but the little that I did felt great. The ability to double bird AND angler on then 2 is insane.

I could use some help with the mana base and sideboard. I've never played 3 colors and I'm not sure how to optimize it while mitigating life loss. I have like a $400 budget for new cards so unfortunately tarn is out of my price range, some day I'll be able to pick them up.

Thanks for any advice that you can give me!

There's also Memory Sluice which, while it hits one less card by itself, is both easier to cast and also lets you dig deeper if you want to late game turn your Bloodghast s into extra digging power (if you're having trouble getting them to connect). Just a thought.

enpc memory sluice is pretty interesting but I ran the numbers and going from 5 to 4 drops our chance of hitting one or more targets down 10%. So I dont think the late game power is worth the early game consistency
