Gerry Thompson SCG Article 6/15/2012:
I wouldn't have minded saving this deck for Grand Prix Columbus, but oh well. This is by far the most powerful thing you can be doing in Modern. With a discard outlet, a Goryo's Vengeance, a fatty, and some Spirit Guides, you can be attacking for fifteen on turn 1!
After a few Magic Online two-man queues, I've been able to do that exactly once but chose not too since I wanted to get value with Emrakul's annihilator. However, I've had several turn 2 "kills" where I get to attack with Emrakul or Griselbrand. In Emrakul's case, their board is gone and you have plenty of time to rebuild. With Griselbrand, it can be trickier, but you should be fine since you're up seven or fourteen cards. At that point, you should be able to do it all again next turn.
Assuming your deck doesn't implode on you, you're pretty consistent around turn 3 or 4. If that doesn't work, you can turn to the Through the Breach backup plan. Postboard you can expect all kinds of graveyard hate, so I usually lean on Through the Breach a lot heavier there, hence the sideboard Pentad Prism.
This deck is incredibly fun and very powerful, and I might play it at the Grand Prix regardless just because of how awesome it is and how awesome Griselbrand is. I'll continue to work on this one, so let me know in the comments if you want to hear more about it in the future!
Also, I saw the spoiler for M13's Wild Guess, and that card is probably awesome in this deck.
[Editor's note: Wild Guess is a rumored sorcery that costs RR. The text on it is, "As an additional cost to cast Wild Guess, discard a card. Draw two cards."]
