Quote from TechnicolorMage »I would really like to see some decklists for Fires of Invention control or otherwise. Anyone brewed up anything fun and inspiring?
Quote from TechnicolorMage »Do you mulligan hard for Anger of the Gods?
Quote from TechnicolorMage »I have concerns about the early game. I know our metas are different, mine is smaller and punishes open players without mercy (it didn't use to, but we have become far less lenient in that regard).
Quote from TechnicolorMage »Admittedly, I am looking at Grixis colors, feel like black just adds a lot of options but the way my brain is working today, I may be off my rocker.
Quote from TechnicolorMage »I know you don't particularly like PW'ers but I couldn't imagine a Grixis shell without at least one Bolas walker.
Quote from Prid3 »
Nope. If I wanted more cheap removal I would toss in a couple more.
That's fair and fine. There's room to add more removal and/or blockers.
The deck can realistically be any colors and Grixis is a great combo.
This is a fantastic PWer deck and I routinely play versions that include them. The only reason why I tend to dislike them is because they're extremely difficult to protect but that's trivially easy when you get to cast multiple spells per turn. You can do some extremely nutty things with Mastermind's Acquisition and/or Fae of Wishes where you setup combos such as Doubling Season + Liliana, Dreadhorde General or Chandra, Awakened Inferno + Jokulhaups. The Elderspell, Contagion Engine and Planewide Celebration (Proliferate 4x for instant PW ults) can also work too. Heck, even if you throw "I win" combos out the window there's nothing wrong with Damnation + Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God on turn 5 or assuming that you went Fires of Invention + Damnation on turn 4 then turn 5 can easily be Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God + The Eldest Reborn. Don't forget about Karn's Bastion either because PWers love Proliferate and you have plenty of mana to spare.
Burning Wish, Mastermind's Acquisition and Fae of Wishes are definitely the best cards to be playing in Fires of Invention decks if anyone wants to build something ultra-cutthroat because then you can literally play with any card in your collection. After all, you get to tutor and cast the spell on the same turn. So you can build a deck full of tutors, Fires, ramp, etc. and then use a pure Wish "board" to play the perfect spell every turn since your deck will be playing 12+ 0 mana Demonic Tutors that can fetch any card in Magic (that you own). So if you want the meanest possible Grixis build there you go.
