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.

Happy Building!

Said on How come Mill ......

#1

Overall mill is a worse burn, but there's still potential there, if the card pool was ever expanded. if we take as a rule of thumb that you have to devide "mill x" by 2.5 (starting 7 plus 3 draws leaves 50 cards to be milled compared to 20 life to be burned), the shortcomings and benefits become obvious.

Glimpse the Unthinkable, THE mill spell, becomes a much worse Boros Charm at sorcery speed. you can do that to most mill cards.

Archive Trap is potentially great as a 0cmc instant 5 damage spell.

i forget the name, but you also have instant speed "draw 3 cards" for just a blue.

there are a few individual cards that give mill small edges over burn, but there's just not enough to make a consistent build.

Hedron Crab is a much worse Grim Lavamancer and so on.

it's very possible though that if mill gets even one more good mill spell at a good rate that is playset-worthy, it could be a real thing. you never know.
