Quote from Ym1r »There were also 2 grixis control decks at the SCG combined weekend, a Corey like list and a more midrangey one that ended up 2nd.Quote from thewrush »What if this deck ran Death's Shadow? It constantly hovers at low life the entire game. I'm sure some have had them in the sideboard at one point, but I can see playing them as an extra cheap threat.
On a side note I was pretty disappointed with the GP results. Hardly any Blue representation minus Merfolk. Modern is so dominated by Black, Green, Red it seems. Green is obviously one of the best colors and makes me feel like if I'm not playing green I deserve to lose. Anyway, been seeing some Grixis control popping up in the 5-0's still. At least that is still happening.
Edit: I didn't take the time to go through anything non top 8. I see Corey made it to 19th which is awesome news really and another in 32nd place by Andy Wilson. There were also some Esper variants in Brisbane. Not bad I guess.
Ahh, thank you for pointing those out. I was unaware of the team constructed event. I do like that 2nd place deck design by Asa. Zero AV and a few more creatures along with mainboard damnation does look pretty sweet.
