Subscribed! Congratulations on the 5-0. Also, very cool Grixis Control build :-)

Good points. I hadn't really appreciated how relevant that small difference in toughness would be in practice. The synergy with Lyra Dawnbringer is also a nice perk.
I'm not sure I would describe this deck as a control shell. This is one of the most aggressive Jescai Tempo builds I have seen-- cutting down on Colonnades, running more creatures, maximizing the de facto burn element of the deck... It seems like a build that I would enjoy piloting.
How are you liking Settle the Wreckage relative to Verdict, WoG, etc.?
Also what matchups do you bring in Rest in Peace for? It's interesting to see RiP in the sideboard of a deck that I would bring RiP in against ;-)

I like the list overall though; +1

Hour of Reckoning is a little too difficult to cast IMO because it requires you to already have a well established board presense. I'm actually swapping my copies of Slaughter the Strong out for Wrath of God, which I think is positioned better in the current meta.

+1, cool build! I also happen to have a completely original Rakdos discard-based combo deck with Waste Not, although my combo is more direct and all-in. Check it out if you have a minute: Liliana Eats Your Brain

I went ahead and did the math for you. There is a 42.1% chance of drawing a Wizard by turn four (including your opening hand). The chance that you would have drawn a wizard, played it, and also had Wizard's Retort is obviously significantly lower than this. Definitely not "very likely". I'm not trying to be negatively critical; just want to help you improve the deck.

"5 wizards in the deck and only 2 of these in the main, make it very likely you will get to have a 2 drop hard counter."
I love the deck, but come on dude, this statement simply isn't true from a mathematial/statistical standpoint. You would probably be better off swapping Wizard's Retort athough I'm honestly not sure what would be optimal. Normally I would say Logic Knot, but that's not actually very good in this build.
Regarding the land base, I would make the following changes:
Great build overall though! +1

+1, nice build. I used it to run a dozen matches against my B/W Tokens deck in attempting to master the matchup, which had previously been giving me some trouble.
Although most Tokens decks are notably less competitive than my $1k build, I am curious to ask if you have faced B/W Tokens much, and if so, how you have fared generally. Thanks in advance!
