    Re: Stifle Vise

    Tinkering around with something here again, now that I have the set of Forces. I think I will try and do a landstill type of deck with artifact lands and Ghirapur Aether Grid as my grinding plan. I don't think Vise fits this strategy, but I think Grid + artifact lands + spellbombs + Academy Ruins will be deliciously frustrating for my opponents. Honestly, recurring spellbombs and using Grid for direct damage should turn the corner pretty quickly.

    4x Pyrite Spellbomb
    4x Aether Spellbomb
    1x Retrofitter's Foundry
    1x Engineered Explosives
    1x Pithing Needle
    1x Tormod's Crypt
    3x Artificer's Intuition
    3x Ghirapur Aether Grid
    1x Crucible of Worlds
    4x Standstill
    4x Force of Will
    4x Brainstorm
    2x Spell Pierce
    2x Shrapnel Blast
    2x Jace, the Mind Sculptor

    3x Scalding Tarn
    2x Steam Vents
    3x Island
    1x Mountain
    4x Seat of the Synod
    2x Great Furnace
    3x Wasteland
    3x mishra's factory
    2x academy ruins

    Is academy ruins in the deck? I was about to post that there was a land that brought artifacts back, then saw you talked about it in the comment but didnt have it in the list.

    Re: Stifle Vise

    Its been in and out of the list. The breaking point on Force is really close, the 3 slots i've used on orb push it out. Not sure how to solve the problem.

    Thought on the new Ashiook? If you are having trouble finding room for Force, probably harder to find room for this but figured it would be on your radar for this deck.

    Doesn't leave them down a land by surprise, but can buy you time in the process after the first one or two gets them.

    Re: Stifle Vise

    It's an idea, for sure. The new (edit: not Narset) Saheeli looks pretty enticing as well. All the spellbombs trigger for tokens and copying the tokens into more spellbombs seems very fun.

    EDIT: Might port this over to Modern; no Vises, but I still get Jace, Spellbombs, Saheeli, Ruins. Swap Standstill for Thirst for Knowledge.
