Quote from DementedKirby »Besides the deck, what I love most about this post is the photoshop skills! Excellent! That and I enjoyed going to the casino.
How has the deck played out for you? Have you tested it out much?
Quote from DementedKirby »Have you considered cards like Teferi's Puzzle Box and Mindmoil? Teferi's Puzzle Box disrupts opponents while allowing you to bottomdeck and thus know the order of certain cards for Grenzo. Mindmoil basically does the same but after casting a spell. These cards let you dig further into the deck while also setting up some cards for Grenzo at the bottom of your library.
Quote from sevorge »first off, this deck looks so incredibly sweet, and really well done primer as well! great work.
second off, a recommendation that i was surprised to see excluded is Path of Ancestry; it's powerful in tribal decks anyways, but especially when scrying is so powerful in the deck i feel like it's very worthy of the slot.
i might put this deck together, looks like a ton of fun!
Quote from KissMyAssassin »Props on the deck; it looks amazingly fun to play. Grenzo saving himself via getting sac'd, tucked, and flipped is tech I didn't think about before reading this thread although it would remove any counters on him at the time.
As a thought experiment based on that:
What would you do if you had the limitation of only 2 power or less rather than 3?
This would cut out quite a few important cards:
Lightning Crafter Zealous Conscripts Deathbringer Thoctar Phyrexian Delver Epitaph Golem Furystroke Giant Fleshbag Marauder Fleshwrither Puppeteer Clique
Could it still be viable to play without these? You would always have the consistency of being able to flip all of your creatures no matter how many counters Grenzo had on him, but you cut out some combo wins, a Reito Lantern on a body, mass sacrifice, Deathbringer's powerful removal, tutoring, and reanimation. It is a rather large limitation.
Quote from Taleran »I had a stranger Grenzo deck and it was working however I wanted to change it up saw this and the deck has started drifting in that direction, I really like the chaos off it and while I have couple more spells and missing a couple bits here and there it is a grand time.
Quote from Taleran »But there is a way to get them back, all the non-artifact Grenzo nonflips are Black and Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed is very good at getting those things back and even looping the Living Death if the conditions are correct.
Quote from Kokonutt » Love this deck list, I am play testing mine soon.
Have you considered Vessel of Endless Rest. I know it is a noncreature artifact. But it also doubles as a mana ramp beyond its awesome ten effect. Plus it can be cheated out with goblin welder.
Also, although crypt ghast is a stupid good card, I don't think it can be played in this deck due to the color identity rule. It is technically a white black card right?
Love this post super comprehensive.
Quote from ChaosNomad »Hey, loving the Grenzo deck. I’m curious is there a reason you’re not running Canal Dredger? He’s legal in Commander, it’s just his draft exclusive text does nothing. You also get style points for running a draft based card.
Quote from Kokonutt »I noticed my mistake after I posted About crypt ghast, my apologies. If i may, what are your thoughts on corpse connoisseur? Does it work as a digger loop feeder for specific creatures outside of goblin tutoring?
