Feb 15, 2019I´d go for vampire hexmage only because it can be easily played from hand. Another option could be phyrexian revoker, which can be used for any kind of permanent (except lands, sadly).Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Feb 13, 2019Posted in: Multiplayer Commander DecklistsQuote from Dromar the Banisher »Been playing Grenzo for the past few years and I'm curious what people like for a graveyard hate package. I don't play against a ton of graveyard shenanigans but there is a Meren deck that can be annoying quite once it gets going. Of course there's our old buddy Junktroller who serves multiple purposes in this deck but I like to have access to a little more than that.
I've had some success with Withered Wretch as a 2 power creature that Grenzo can flip and it's something fairly cheap to activate. Also holding mana up for Wretch goes hand-in-hand with what Grenzo wants to do anyways so it interacts nicely in that regard.
Similarly I've also tried Nezumi Graverobber but I've never actually managed to flip it so it's basically a Withered Wretch that's more expensive to use (and also needs colored mana). The flipped version does have a strong effect but if that never comes up then I have to deem the card not worthwhile.
There's also stuff like Crypt Creeper and Heap Doll which are kind of neat as they sac themselves but probably a bit too weak of an effect overall.
Bojuka Bog is an obvious freeroll in this deck. One shot exile someone's grave is handy. Can be a bit awkward if you draw it too early but I'm usually pretty happy having one in my deck.
Yet to try some other non-creatures like Relic of Progenitus, Nihil Spellbomb, Tormod's Crypt, Rakdos Charm, etc though I think for the most part I don't really want em since creatures tend to be better (especially in the case of Relic which nukes my own GY).
Looking through some cards I found Agent of Erebos which is a Tormod's crypt ETB effect on a creature. With a sac outlet/recursion you could in theory use it multiple times so that might be another good option. Anyone tested with it?
Also curious why no mention of Cloak and Dagger in the primer. This card is often better than any of the Lightning Greaves/Swiftfoot Boots type of effects in this deck since it not only auto equips to Grenzo but even boosts his power so you can save mana on casting him. Obviously adding non-creatures isn't ideal but I do think this equipment is worthwhile.
I don´t play a lot against graveyard shenanigans in my playgroup (mainly Meren and Phenax), but if I were to play more graveyard hate I´d go for withered wretch and agent of erebos. Being creatures is key here.
As for cloak and dagger, I agree with you to be worthwile, but also agree that being an artifact is not ideal. I removed mana crypt from my list some days ago because I've flipped it several times with Grenzo. I replaced it with a plague myr

First of all, congrats for your work on this deck. Insanely fun!
Second, I have a couple of questions:
1. No love for balthor the defiled? I see you got inspiration from Zervintz list, who plays it. I think it´s great for this deck (it won me a couple of matches last week).
2. How about your latest changes? (judith, the scourge diva, kuldotha forgemaster and emrakul's hatcher).

I think blood artist would be a better choice.
Jan 8, 2019Posted in: Competitive Commander (cEDH)Guardian's Plan looks AWESOME for Edric. Every single creature in Edric cantripping is just too much to ask for. I'll be preordering a copy of this card, make no mistake, since I believe it will be ridiculously powerful in Commander generally and Edric specifically.
The new Winged Salamander is cute and a decent inclusion for the deck. The fact that it can become a 5/5 for U will probably be relevant when the Board gets cleared for the 2nd or 3rd time, but otherwise it's just a 1/1 flyer for U. I'll be picking up a copy of this as well just for the lolz.
I also like the salamander for late game, but I don´t know what "guardian´s plan" is. Could you enlighten us?;)
Oct 26, 2018Posted in: Multiplayer Commander DecklistsQuote from GrenzoEDH »Hey, I just wanted to extend my thanks to both snowfox54119 and Zervintz for your contributions to this topic and actively pursuing upgrades and enhancements to this incredibly fun and dynamic commander.
Same here. Just received the last cards for the deck and I can´t wait to play with it this weekend!
@snowfox54119 I wonder if you have tried or thought about Phyrexian tower. I have one and I think it could be good for occasionoal sac and flip.
And how about Mana crypt?. I know you want to minimize the number of non-creature spells, but crypt is soooo good.
Thank in advance and sorry for my english.
Oct 15, 2018Posted in: Multiplayer Commander DecklistsQuote from KitsuLeif »The best thing to do with an Enchanted Evening is to force a draw when you have Ajani's Chosen out. It creates an infinite loop that, when unanswered, lets the game end on the spot. It counts as a draw but it will feel like a win. At least it did for me the one time I pulled it off.
I kinda like the idea of a draw, but losing my friends could be tough haha.
Oct 11, 2018Yeah, I had once Tuvasa enchanted with ancestral mask and enchanted evening on the board and it was like 70/70 haha.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Oh, and I forgot to mention that I also have Sigil of the empty throne as a wincon.
Oct 11, 2018I play ancestral mask, steel of the godhead, shield of the oversoul and spirit mantle. I know 2 for 1´s are painful, but in my opinion it´s worth the risk. Other nice auras to test could be bear umbra, aqueous form or ethereal armor.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Enchanted evening works really well with other cards in the deck, like sphere of safety or serra´s sanctum (and tuvasa the sunlit, of course;))
Oct 11, 2018I play some auras to win through commander damage (just 4). My other wincons are Starfield of Nyx, opalescence and the enchanted evening + aura thief/calming verse combo.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Regarding the merciless eviction issue, I´ve found that teferis protection is superb. It saves us from a boardwipe and can buy a turn if you are going very low on life.

Yeah, Gamble in the list that I'm currently running is not a risk I'm willing to take. If I happen to discard the card I tutor for, I have no real way of getting it back. Gamble works great in a Reanimator strategy, where the discard is indeed desirable. It's a decent suggestion though, so thanks for chiming in!
It sounds like you're also running a semi-Reanimator list, is that right? Do you have it posted somewhere?
No, it isn´t posted anywhere haha. In fact, your list inspired me when I started building the deck. It´s pretty similar to yours, but I play 3 reanimate spells instead of some stax pieces like thalia or suppression field.

I wanted to know if there were any other opinions out there regarding tutors in WBR for a competitive decklist. Any ideas?
I play Gamble. I know it´s risky, but I also play things like reanimate and animate dead in case a monster is discarded.

I was hoping to find some creature or permanent with a repeatable effect that makes the creature return immediately (just like eldrazi displacer), because that's the only way to get multiple ETB triggers in a turn
Well, I play Brago, King eternal, and I like him so far. I know he needs to connect, but I like to untap my tapped signets, crypt or sol ring to reuse them later in the turn.
