You generally don't need to exile all copies; and furthermore, by the time you can cast Crumble, they already have tron assembled. Setting them back 1-2 turns is generally enough when you're playing control.
Regarding replacements: if you're looking for other cards, Kroxa is SUPER good. Taxes them early and wins the game late. There's plenty of other playable options though: Liliana, the Last Hope is good (though best with more creatures to recur), Kalitas, Brazen Borrower , Nimble Obstructionist , Tasigur, even Murktide Regent . Sprite Dragon is also an absolute beating, but would need a significant rework of the deck to get max value.

I'll second wildfire over crumble.
I also think jvp is super strong in grixis, moreso than search.

The vials seem really out of place, to me. You might sub them for baubles, consider goyf or jvp over the 3 drops, and add lurrus as your companion; it's just so dang strong to have a free creature that gives card advantage.
I also think having only two discard spells is a tough plan to execute, especially with control. You'll rarely get them t1, and they're usually bad topdecks late game.
Cheers, I love sultai.

Would need to have seen it to get a full read. Depends on how the situation was presented once he mentioned being out of town. As an adult with kids in the magic community, I'm in inclined to be sympathetic to wanting to split, especially for something as casual as a prerelease. That being said, for all I know he went about saying it poorly, so who knows

This was physically painful to experience.

There's nothing wrong with speaking in generalities. Exceptions matter far less than trends, especially for competitive play. Nitpicking doesn't change the reality of it.

I just can't imagine the subject matter being done in an eloquent way, in the modern era. It'd be a magnet for artificial controversy and just seems messy, to me.

It would probably come off as horrifically ham-fisted; in general, I am anti-reboot. I'd rather take the nostalgic wonder of considering how a continuation might be, considering the track record of remakes in the modern era.

4 reveler is a lot - maybe go down to 2, work in manamorphose somewhere for prowess?
