Think Twice Discussion

Grubbernaut thanks for the upvote! Generally what you said is true, but for this deck I beg to differ. Think Twice is always card advantage while Frantic Inventory , which draws more cards if you can cast all four, has to be drawn at multiple times to get the advantage. Plus if you have to discard Think Twice to Forbidden Alchemy you can still flashback it, plus having one in the gy you can do cool stuff like play Mortuary Mire a Mulldrifter and get it back by flashbacking Think Twice it if you have the mana, or get back a Gurmag Angler . This deck is mostly a "draw, land, go" kind of deck so the flashback cost isn't an issue. Curse of the Bloody Tome is a bad card generally, but it works in this deck because, as I said, many turns are just waiting for stuff to counter and having a passive wincon is cool. Plus you can discard it to Forbidden Alchemy . On MTGO it also has the advantage that if you play it on the first round by turn three, people will scoop because they aren't ready for a mill deck, side out removal for enchantment hate, and get stomped by Gurmag Angler . Cast Down I agree, but until they ban Chatterstorm you need ways to sweep by turn two. Plus against boros you can sweep First Day of Class buffed birds which is nice, and two Suffocating Fumes is necessary to survive against elves.

Gressil on Grixis Cruel Control w/ Discard

Hi Daron6! Thanks for very much for your suggestions, they're really valuable!

I've followed almost all of your tips, however I have a question regarding a BIG finisher. Is Pearl Lake Ancient really that big and strong of a creature, or can it be substituted with something else like Thraximundar? Or does it's inclusion by you come from the fact that it can stack and can't be countered? Also aren't Nicol Bolas planeswalkers enough of a finisher, or do you feel like I need creatures specifically? Tasigur, the Golden Fang is a nice addition, I'll definitely add it!

Removing Mind Funeral also enticed me to exchange Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker for Kess, Dissident Mage to have additional counters always available from the grave.

Overall I feel like here's a lot of card draw - 15 in total from various cards (counting Flashback from Think Twice. Don't you feel like that's a little too much?

I've also replaced a few basic lands with Dual Check lands, they're pretty cheap and having two or more basic lands at any point in the game shouldn't be that hard to achieve.

Hi! I'm not a control player (I only play tempo-delver decks), so I'll try to help you.

1) Removal, 4 electrolyze is a LOT, seriously play 1-2. Terminates and other stuff is OK.

2) 24 lands, I would recommend playing more two colour lands, like those ones who enters tapped unless you control an island/mountain or swamps, is not a good idea fill the deck with basics in a 3 colour deck.

3) Go to 4 inquisition and 4 pushes.

4) Where are the cantrips lol? : 4 Serum Visions yes or yes and 4 opts. Think Twice for card advantage.

5) counters: I have a recipe for counters and works 90% of the times, 3-4 Mana Leak, 1-2 Spell Snare, playing control decks I would recommend Cryptic Command but is not budget friendly xddd, so go to a 3 Mana counter (or Logic Knot) and 2 negates.

6) This is not a mill deck so Mind Funeral doesn't fit at this deck.

7) you need a BIG finisher like 2 Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Pearl Lake Ancient.

Well, hope I helped you a bit :).

Opt, Serum Visions, Fatal Push, Spell Snare, Mishra's Bauble and Inquisition of Kozilek are perfect cheap spells.

You only need 3 of Tasigur and Gurmag combined and even Pyromancer can be cut down to 2. Sprite Dragon is a great substitute.

You can cut down Stubborn Denial, Izzet Charm, Think Twice and Vapor Snag completely and Mana Leak down to 2-3. Countersquall, Drown in the Loch and Archmage's Charm are great alternatives.

Hey, your deck is looking pretty good! I would test out 4 Frantic Inventory over Think Twice and Omen of the Sea. It's a great card that produces pure card advantage for a pretty low cmc.

I would consider going grixis for Sedraxis Specter and Lightning Bolt and Terminate/Dreadbore and Vapor Snag and other blue draw like Remand/Think Twice.... bounce effects of nonland permanents like Echoing Truth will essentially become removal with Spector combat damage.

akselodd thanks for replying. And I'm glad you liked many of the suggestions! I always like to have redundancy when running a combo deck. I have run into decks with enough disruption that while I could make infinite mana, my one or two outlets were removed and I lost. Different ideas that way I suppose.

I suppose I was hyping up Think Twice a bit too much. It's just a filler that is coming out later. Not a bad card but I think Sapphire Charm probably out does in this type of deck.

One more consideration that I stumbled upon while looking through some cards today: AEthermage's Touch. This deck can't manipulate the top of the library (such as with a Brainstorm or other budget ones) but I think casting it enough times might let you get Peregrine Drake out for 4 mana or any of those big CMC creatures for possibly 3 or 4 less mana. Also if you have a flicker spell in hand, you can avoid the downside of the card.

A final thought here could be to run a clone or two, but not sure how useful that would end up being.
