SteelSentry on top cards of each color

Partly a list of the best, partly a list of pet cards

Mother of Runes, Swords to Plowshares (I know Giver is usually better but mom protecting herself, or threatening to, has come up surprisingly often in my games)

Telepathy, Dramatic Reversal

Tainted Strike, Tainted AEther

Goblin Welder, Greater Gargadon

Crop Rotation, Constant Mists

Since you're running a bunch of mana dorks, adding Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal could be strong here. All you need to do is hit 2 mana worth of dorks/rocks and you're good from there.

Whir of Invention is another card worth adding since right now all your combos use an artifact.

I would also look to add stuff like Kiora's Follower - while it doesn't work inside of combo, outside of that it's still a mana dork and an untapper.

Instill Energy and Nature's Chosen are both interesting card here, again they aren't combo cards but let you generate a lot of value with your commander.

wallisface on Grixis wincons viability

I think you're going about this a bit wrong. Grixis decks typcically don't want to be winning by any kind of big flashy-combos, or high-mana-cards. Their gameplan is typically to grind away any kind of proactive play from the opponent, and then quickly edge-out a win before the opponent can recoup from all that early-game disruption.

To that end, iconic Grixis spells include Lightning Bolt, Fatal Push, Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, Counterspell, Spell Pierce, and Stubborn Denial, as well as occasionally some stuff like Drown in the Loch, Expressive Iteration, and Unholy Heat. Their creatures are often cards that can hit hard fast, or come with free value - things like Death's Shadow, Snapcaster Mage, Dragon's Rage Channeler, Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer, Gurmag Angler, Ledger Shredder, and occasionally things like Tasigur, the Golden Fang or Murktide Regent.

So, their gameplan is typically a very straightforward one - every one of their cards provides value on its own, everything is fairly low-mana-curve, and the overall goal is to quickly disrupt your opponents ability to play, and then kill them before they recover.

In terms of the cards you've suggested, I would say they don't really fit into any kind of typical Grixis shell, for the following reasons:

  • Cormela, Glamour Thief is a very high-costing card with very low relative value for that mana-investment. Same goes for Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God.

  • Grapeshot is a combo card and something better having a deck dedicated towards making it work. Instead of trying to do value-plays, you try and combo off asap. This archetype already exists in Modern as Storm, so has no real home/reason-to-exist outside of that. Similarly, as Grixis isn't trying to do any flashy combos, Manamorphose & Dramatic Reversal have super-limited/non-existant use.

  • Lazav, the Multifarious doesn't really do anything or add anything important to be worth building around, imo. Grixis decks especially often have a super-low creature count, which makes its ability pretty niche. Maybe it's a "pet card" that could fit as a 1-of in a death's shadow brew?

  • Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger is a fine card to include in Grixis decks, as many decks already run this (though often as only a 1-of or 2-of at most) - it definately requires some deckbuilding considerations to include it though. I think Ob Nixilis, the Adversary could potentially fit within a Grixis shell, though Grixis decks do often run a very small quantity of creatures, and this may pose a problem.

Now, most of these cards you can still easily build decks around, though I would say you generally don't want to be trying to fit them into typical "Grixis" builds. Some of these cards fit a lot better in UR combo decks (Grapeshot, Manamorphose) for example. I would say that all the cards you've mentioned will have some home within modern, baring only Cormela, Glamour Thief (the card is trash) and Dramatic Reversal (there's just better ways to achieve anything this card is trying to achieve).

MrGuizee666 on Grixis wincons viability

Evening!

I've been thinking about brewing different archetypes in UBR and came up with some ideas. Most if not all grixis control decks will use Snapcaster Mage and manlands to achieve a win whilst running lots of disruption. I thought about using cards like Manamorphose with Cormela, Glamour Thief + Dramatic Reversal in order to cast big spells earlier or storm off with Grapeshot. I also thought about using Lazav, the Multifarious + Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger for the disruption followed by a Ob Nixilis, the Adversary or a turn 5 Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God to punish my opponents. Since I don't have some of these cards it'll be an investment to make. I'd like to use them in Leagues (MTGO)

What do you guys think? Any ideas? What about infinite combos?

Babbacchio on Isochron scepter + Brain Freeze …

So we have in play a Isochron Scepter and the artifact came in play discarding a Dramatic Reversal , imprinting it. What if we play the Scepter a thousand of times, and then we cast a Brain Freeze ? Does it work for milling the opponent's deck ? Thanks

Hey, nice list! I have an Orvar deck myself, and I'm going to have to try the Dramatic Reversal and Isochron Scepter, that one I haven't seen before.

Revision; added more infinite combo potential with Dramatic Reversal just waiting on Isochron Scepter to arrive. Added a few more token generators like Sai, Master Thopterist, Etherium Spinner, and Thopter Engineer. Added Jhoira's arguably better version Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain to swap out commanders if someone so pleased, along with Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer although not as well optimized for Brudi. Do have a few more cards on like way like Memnarch and a few others from my maybe board, will add when they arrive.
