Grim Tutor


Search your library for a card and put that card into your hand, then shuffle your library. You lose 3 life.

Thanks for all the feedback Apollo_Paladin!

I might go with your suggestion on Grim Tutor as I have mythic wildcards available. I've been grinding games just to get the third Solemnity. As for the tapped lands, they are there mainly to enable the bargain cost of Ice Out and the temple ones for free scrying. I could see cutting some of them though for some MDF lands  Flip. Which now that I think about it, I am missing a card in this list, Rowan's Grim Search.

I had a similar build on Arena a while back using the more classic Solemnity + Nine Lives combo and this seems similar. One thing I found with my build was that Wishclaw Talisman can work against you, particularly if an opponent knows what you're up to. Idyllic Tutor will get you the same job done, but there's no opportunity for an opponent to Tutor their own deck for an answer. You could also go with Grim Tutor and it would open up the ability to fetch anything, but I'm not sure it's really needed here.

Beyond that, the only suggestion I'd make is moving away from all of those 'enters tapped' lands just to speed you up. The only real reason to use those indestructible Artifact lands is if you're trying to pull off a different "can't lose" condition with Majestic Metamorphosis + The Book of Exalted Deeds and since you aren't running that combo here I only see them inhibiting you.

Anyway, +1 for a neat build and feel free to add me on Arena if you want to deck tech further with it.

Hey man, just a heads up - Bond of Agony doesn't quite work here. For example let's say you pay 20 life with Blood Celebrant, activate Rowan, Scion of War's ability and cast Bond of Agony where X = 20. You'll still have to pay another 20 life as an additional cost. Not very good at all.

Also, have you considered Plunge into Darkness or Spoils of the Vault here? With cards like Torment of Hailfire & Crackle with Power in the mix, they're 1-card wincons here. Vampiric Tutor, Grim Tutor & Cruel Tutor also have some serious added benefit with this one.

Diabolic Intent and Profane Tutor were both tested in this build. kmall3170 found that she likes having the option to not rely on being forced into sacrificing and she also finds Profane to be too slow. There are moments that you need to use Grim Tutor to tutor for answers in tight situations where your field is empty, so she ultimately settld on Grim. I do appreciate the suggestion though!

Balvron Welcome back to the game! As I'm sure you know, a lot has changed.

So, my personal deck building philosophy these days is to decide how the deck is going to win with specific cards and work backwards from there, filling in the rest of the deck with the means to win with those specific cards (ramp, draw, tutors, etc.)

I'll get straight to the point, I think a better approach would be to use your access to 4 colors to quickly Tutor up gear for Atraxa, Praetors' Voice such as Phyresis, Grafted Exoskeleton and Swiftfoot Boots as the backbone of your infect strategy. Cards like Enlightened Tutor, Steelshaper's Gift & Open the Armory can help with that. There are also a lot of tutors in Black like Diabolic Tutor and Grim Tutor that can get you where you're trying to go.

I'd also Include a high density of mana dorks like Bloom Tender & Llanowar Elves since you're in Green. That, along with a decent number of mana rocks like Sol Ring & Arcane Signet will help you get your commander out in the early game, as well as allow you to cut down on lands to between 29-35, depending on the numbers.

Blue cantrips like Ponder, Brainstorm & Preordain are great. Enchantments or Artifacts like Dark Tutelage, Phyrexian Arena & Scroll Rack could also work here.

As for proliferation, I'd recommend cards like Flux Channeler, Inexorable Tide, Tekuthal, Inquiry Dominus, Viral Drake & Thrummingbird. There are also control options like Serum Snare, Reject Imperfection & Brokers Confluence.

Strionic Resonator & Lithoform Engine might pass playtesting, but maybe not idk!


Orange+ on Horobi and the Wailers ~100$

Hey, andmike.

Thanks for the comment :)

I dont have any immediate ideas for a 150$ build, but I guess you could consider adding some black staples. There are also some pretty decent death trigger cards that I dont play. There is probably much more interesting ways to add to the deck than introducing more staples (and making the deck much more similar to everyone elses), but finding good original cards is a harder process :)

Death trigger cards: Grave Betrayal, Massacre Wurm, and Revel in Riches.

Black staples: Cabal Coffers, Crypt Ghast, Cabal Stronghold, Vilis, Broker of Blood, Lightning Greaves, Skullclamp, Reanimate, Exhume, Dance of the Dead, Animate Dead, Necromancy, Grim Tutor, Bloodchief Ascension and Phyrexian Arena.

Best of luck!
