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!

hey guy what's with the new artifact in burn? Shrine of Burning Rage. I know that that boros list just took down a GP with a playset of shrines, but piloting grixis control, this card makes me giddy because its just so intensely bad against my deck. do you think it will stick? would make me very happy :D also, which matchups is that card helping for burn? i dont quite see it...

Now that al this is said and done, i think i'm gonna brew up a list with heavy hand disruption, cheap removal, Faithless Looting, Young Pyromancer and Bedlam Reveler. I may post results here if i get around to it. Mardu tempo for the win

I also don't get why you are so offended. This discussion is about mardu, not you. The first person to write unpleasant, aggressive shit was you.

As I said before, I agree with you that mardu's cardpool has "tier deck" written all over it. And mardu is capable of beating tier decks. But whatever you write, something is obviously missing or it would succeed more. I'm not saying that to piss you off, because again, you are not the subject of this thread (and me neither). And if you're not willing to really put mardu to the test, how on earth do you find the confidence to make all these bold statements? That's just incomprehensible to me.

Xica also, mardu simply never has had a real dog in the modern meta. That's an undebatable fact. We are making a point that is already proven in practice. If you want to convince anybody, do the same. Build a deck, record your wins/losses, and if you're successful, write an article and publish it. End of story. Otherwise, get over it.

White prison being #1 is like trump being president. Everybody hates it, but fuck "everybody".
