Geth's Grimoire


Whenever an opponent discards a card, you may draw a card.

I personally like Rankle, Master of Pranks he plays into all three aspects of this deck. Plus its optional which modes you choose so you can adjust according to the board state. Although he does have to deal combat damage he has built in evasion.

Geth's Grimoire + Fateful Handoff can be a fun combo although depending on how the game is going it might hurt you more than you benefit. But say you pair it with Dark Deal when they have a massive hand you can get some good value, but they also will draw up a bunch of cards again. You may actually be able to use that as a win-con against one player to mill them out.

Alternatively Fateful Handoff + Vilis, Broker of Blood + Underworld Dreams will be an Auto-kill. If you were running an esper deck Fractured Identity would let you kill everyone instead of one player.

Thanx for your reply! Yes, Sheoldred, the Apocalypse is great. I've been considering changing Tergrid with her. =) Torment of Hailfire was opted out from the deck, because it was too strong and.. not very interactive, I guess. It somehow had the same outcome each time: generate 15+ mana, tutor > hellfire > win, if not counterd. I've decided it was not with the casual theme of the deck.

Geth's Grimoire is good, but the payoff of drawing cards seemed redundant in this deck. Tinybones, Trinket Thief is cheaper and at least gives black devotion for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Gray Merchant of Asphodel, but I do not like that his activated ability will probably never be used in such a deck.

Worst Fears is surprisingly good here, because with big draw engines it gives you a lot of options of messing up with opponent plans with there own cards (also you choose what to give to Tergrid, if she is in play)

Nice deck! Have you considered Sheoldred, the Apocalypse? Seems tailor-made for a deck that forces lots of draw. Geth's Grimoire can also be very beneficial for you, to profit from opposing discards even more. Same goes for Tinybones, Trinket Thief. I would also really recommend Torment of Hailfire as it's absolutely devastating in here on multiple levels.

To make room for these changes I would recommend top remove K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth, Murderous Rider, Profane Command and Worst Fears.

I think this deck could use a few heavies to serve as finishers, or blockers for creatures that your opponent top-decks. Besides an eternalized Dream stealer, that is. After turn 5 your opponent will likely be in top deck mode, something that will make Geth's Grimoire dead weight, and makes several of your creatures useful only as chump blockers. Gurmag Angler is an obvious choice for a heavy, or maybe Demon of Catastrophes. His flying and trample abilities are very useful.

You could take out a few copies of Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage. You don't want multiple copies of him showing up, anyway.

Waste Not, Words of Waste, Noetic Scales, Geth's Grimoire, Dauthi Voidwalker and mostly Tegrid god of fright all synergize big time with Dark Deal and Pox too.

I would think about cutting Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage, Liliana of the Dark Realms, Ensnaring Bridge depending on what creatures show up in your meta and Liliana's Spoils maybe.

This looks pretty cool. Even without Tergrid, your deck will make it hard for opponents to establish a board-presence with creatures. I would really throw in a Torment of Hailfire; it fits so well with the overall theme. Then there's your opportunity for additional draw; the deck contains maybe five options for that; most being non-recurring. Ideally, EDH decks should carry around maybe 10 on average. Some ideas: Geth's Grimoire, Tinybones, Trinket Thief, Phyrexian Arena and Underworld Connections.

I see you've included a lot of mana-artifacts, so also including Desolation might make sense from that point of view, but ... I dunno. It seems like you've sacrificed all your artifact utility slots for artifact mana slots in order to use this card. And there are so many interesting artifact utilities you now don't have space for, like the aformentioned Grimoire but also other stuff that would really fit the theme like Smokestack, Bolas's Citadel, Anvil of Bogardan, etc.

Lastly, I would really recommend replacing Enslave, Inevitable End and Strands of Undeath with enchantments that allow you to benefit from and/or punishing others for discarding/sacrificing; black has so many nice options to choose from for this like Megrim, Liliana's Caress, Raiders' Wake, Waste Not and Bloodchief Ascension.

Have fun with the deck.

Adding in more wheel effects could help with a large hand draw/drop as well, so things like Wheel of Fortune or Wheel of Fate. There are a few planewalkers like Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded, and Sarkhan, Fireblood that can give a little value too. If you feel like adding in some discard for your opponents as well, then a Geth's Grimoire would go very far. That can make the game a little unfun though, so use at your own risk there.

Maga, Traitor to Mortals could be a good mana dump if you find that happens enough to get value there. Good way to get a lot of damage and have a large creature to threaten with too.

that was pretty much my go to for this as well, glad that despite our randomly timed conversations we have generally the same ideas in mind, That being said mindstone will take place of the key. otherwise there are a couple extra cards and avenues i was wanting to take that I haven't been able to find the space for, again of course we'll debate over the suggestions/cuts but the things in mind that I have are as follows

Geth's Grimoire & Words of Waste replace Maralen and Opposition Agent... ...beyond that im looking for more low to the ground and maintenance-y things such as Necrogen Mists, Sign in Blood/card draw(Ancient Craving-esqe) or even more abilities like Dying to Serve.
