Based off of fellow Team Not-Tavrod member AGhostlyToaster's extremely popular Praxis deck
, Ixtol, Champion of Endra has come about kind of by chance. I wanted to try the new Ixtol, Champion of Grodov
and stumbled upon a quite effective counter to Endra decks.
Keys to its success come in Sandstorm Titan
to fight Haunting Scream
tactics, Tocas, Waystone Harvester
to counter copy, sacrifice, and combat tricks. Yushkov, the Usurper
plays double duty in countering scream effects and ramp to get early threats out. Ixtol, Champion of Grodov
is just stupid when you drop Kairos, Grand Champion
or the other way around, dropping an Ixtol when you have Kairos on board to do an insane amount of damage.
The market includes Lumen Reclaimer
which is key to disrupting the Endra, Champion of Shavka
chain. Porcelain Mask
makes blocking inconsequential with Kairos and Ixtol on board.
Flex spots are 2x Moondial
. You can put whatever you like in this spot. I like the guaranteed one card draw and usually more, especially late in the game with a usual Praxis top deck mode.
