This looks awesome! Some cards that come to my mind when I look at your deck:

Kind regards,

I suppose if I wanted to be mean, I could hunt down a copy or two of Grave Pact.

Hi Masterful - cfost827 here on a new account I created :)

Out of curiosity, have you ever thought about running Academy Rector? He's a pretty solid card that cares about going to the graveyard. It could allow you to immediately put into play our strong Enchantments like Necropotence, Bolas's Citadel, Land Tax, Grave Pact, Bastion of Remembrance - whichever you need most at the given time.

Also, what are your thoughts on Ranger-Captain of Eos? He could tutor up Viscera Seer, Carrion Feeder or sac fodder if needed. He also can stop some of the annoying blue players from countering our spells if needed by saying him.

As always, I'm Looking forward to hearing your feedback! :) Thanks!

Why not run some aristocratic cards for sac outlets, Doubling Season, Hardened Scales, Corpsejack Menace, also cards like Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos or Butcher of Malakir.

Hello Rasaru!

Thanks for commenting. A few thoughts on Grismold, the Dreadsower

  1. The deck is not super powerful. In my opinion that is largely because of the fact it is a voltron deck vs. anything regarding grismold himself or my specific build. Voltron is just a hard way to consistently win. It is hovering around a 20-25% win rate - which is solid/normal but by no means powerful.

  2. I am constantly tweaking the deck. I started off with some more generally powerful cards that seemed to fit the theme - Avenger of Zendikar, Grave Pact, Moldervine Reclamation, etc. But ultimately found the deck should be more single-minded - enabling grismold’s win path exclusively. This led to a more efficient build - we are currently clocking in at a very low average 2.15 cmc. But pretty much every set they print has 5 cards that could go into grismold - the deck could easily be 150 cards, so that makes cutting quite difficult. I am about to add Crowded Crypt and Slaughter Specialist from Innistrad, for example - so have to find room for those.

  3. I actually never am sad to see a hand full of protection, haha. This is because no amount of politicking is going to convince your opponents not to want to remove a 25/25 trampling commander. So you’re going to have to burn multiple protection spells every game - if grismold is going to survive and you are going to win. So for me this 8-10 protection spells is a good amount.

  4. The deck is fun! It combines a few staple EDH archetypes - Voltron, aristocrats, tokens, +1/+1 counters into one package.

i would suggest adding more tutors. also get rid of your bad zombies as this is an infinite combo deck and not a zombie tribal deck. zombies is more the subtheme. if you want to go into the zombie tribal deck consider adding more lords like Death Baron and Lord of the Accursed. other than that I would add some more staples in black aristocrats like Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Viscera Seer, Bolas's Citadel, and Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact. Also just good black cards are Diabolic Intent, Necropotence, Carrion Feeder, Deadly Rollick, Grim Haruspex, Grim Tutor, Bastion of Remembrance, Butcher of Malakir, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, Imperial Seal, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, and Decree of Pain. also Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion is a good combo. looks like a good idea but i would get rid of all those 1-2 mana zombies that have no effect of the game. enjoy the deck!

Have you considered running Urborg Justice? An instant speed Grave Pact-like effect can really catch your opponents off guard. Since they don't see it coming, they are much more likely to commit to their board.

If you do end up running it, I would try replacing it with one of your more conditional spot removals like Grasp of Darkness, Dismember, Defile, etc. Good luck!

I have considered the Grave Pact, and the only reason I'm not running Nyx Lotus is ... that Avacyn took it. I'm running it there. But you're right. For this deck, it's so much better than Gilded Lotus that I have to put that on my next order!

If you end up liking Wound Reflection, mlequesne, maybe you'll want to consider Warlock Class. I'm thinking of adding it.
