TheAlexGnan Deckspert

Welcome to the grixis shrine.

My mission here is grixis. My decks are grixis. I'm trying to know everything about those colors.

Even back when I wasn't even aware of competitive modern MTG (I was like 12), I was always playing grixis, and I remember my best build being, you guessed it, grixis. with 4x Lightning Bolt and 4x Terminate along with counters and Fireball as a win condition. Pestilence was in there too, so yea, it was essentially a very simplyfied grixis control list.

So, UBR all the way!

Now, I run grixis homebrews for fun and Grixis Control for a competitive deck. You might say I swapped my entire collection (wasnt that big) for a collection of grixis staples.

So, If you have questions about grixis homebrews, grixs twin/delver/control and even midrange, just post on my wall, tag me in the description or comments. I dont even mind the occasional deck posting on my wall, as long as it doesn't get notorious.

Thats my competitive grixis control list. Kicks ass.

Happy Building!

I can attest to that EpicFreddi, this just happened:

I have 6 lands out, one of them a fetch. Opponent has 2x Thought-Knot Seer, an arbiter and a Tidehollow Sculler that took my Fatal Push. I have a Lightning Bolt in hand and am at 2.

He swings, i crack fetch (1), bolt sculler, push seer1, draw snap, snap-push second seer, block arbiter and proceed to win the game :D

Said on Grixis Delver - ......

#4

i think in the current eldrazi-heavy meta, its suicide to not play Terminate (unless you just concede that matchup, because with this configuration, you dont have a chance). fatal push of course is good against Death's Shadow aggro (and incidentally, GREAT against Celestial Colonnade out of UW control), but you run 0 removal against Eldrazi (bant, eldrazitron or Gx Tron, and these decks make up a large chunk of the meta right now.

Of course you could argue that Death's Shadow outgrows eldrazi, but thats a pretty shakey plan, seeing as you dont have access to Traverse the Ulvenwald.

Maybe I just cant wrap my head around it, but Terminate, at least as a 1-2 of seems like a must. especially since you can create a kind of toolbox effect with Thought Scour and Snapcaster Mage.

In that case, CoCo zombies maybe? Although there'd need to be a zombie that ramps for that to really work..

At the Red Cross Organisation in Austria, "Nef" means

"NOTFALLEINSATZFAHRZEUG"

which means an emergency vehicle that transports emergency doctors to accidents.

Talk about sounding like altdeutsch nazis...

thats probably the best configuration around

I can only repeat that UW is pretty insane. Decks even run Crucible of Worlds for Ghost Quarter locks. UW just gets away with a ton of stuff 3color control can only dream of. And Condemn coupled with Path to Exile arguably makes for the strongest creature removal possible, because UW Control really doesnt give a damn about life totals. Jeskai just isnt that great right now...

Honestly? Right now i'd play UW control. There's a list that top8ed GP Antonio, and it crazy strong. Give it a try. Its quite amazing.

Lol it totally escaped me that i commented on this deck a while back when you were just getting into this archetype. My breathy introduction of, er, myself, must seem pretty weird :D
