Aven Mindcensor Discussion
3 hours ago
A lot of the stuff I'm going to suggest you add might be rather expensive, but the cards are expensive because they're good. I would not go out and buy these cards right away. Proxy them out and try them to see how well your deck flows.
For now, I would add:
Savannah (If you have the money)

Guttersnipe is a terrible card (and also the only card in this list, I really dislike). Reasons: It costs 3 mana, and does nothing when it hits the table. That means, you either have to wait until you hit 4 mana to play it so you can play another card in the same turn, or your opponent has a whole turn to get rid of it. And by the time you can play this, you probably have played the cheaper spells from your opening hand - removal, enablers, the kind of things you'd like to play early anyway.
And you may have 1 Ajani Vengeant too much - in a 21-land deck, you really need to count your 4 cmc cards, and avoid drawing them early and not get enough lands.
Curious: why the 2 Aven Mindcensor? That's not enough to get them on the table while you opponent can be relied on to use fetchlands, and you don't bring the 4 Leonin Arbiter that more or less all death & taxes-variants bring... I think you should decide if you want to screw up the searching, or let your opponent search.

Hey there! Cool deck! It looks to me like you're falling into the classic trap of having lots of effects that care about instants and sorceries, and not enough instants and sorceries. I would recomment cutting 3 Mentor of the Meek and 1 Aven Mindcensor for 4 Lightning Helix.

I think it is a decent start. You have some elements of both death and taxes, and sun and moon. Death and taxes looks to tax effects like Leonin Arbiter, Aven Mindcensor, and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben in conjunction with Ghost Quarter and Path to Exile. These interactions can decimate your opponent's ability to play anything as you tax their lands, and then tax their ability to play instants and sorceries to deal with your tax effects. Sun and Moon operates along a similar line of thinking. It taxes your opponent's non basic lands with Blood Moon and stresses greedy mana bases. It then runs lots of board wipes and planeswalkers to grind out advantage, and Chalice of the Void to proactively counter any answers your opponents might have. Some lists might also elect to run Ghostly Prison.

So, since this isn't standard anymore what will you change? They took away Spirits, but you could try out the Avens for control and have a pretty decent deck. Aven Mindcensor, Nimble Obstructionist, Dauntless Aven, Aven Wind Guide, Tah-Crop Elite, Aven of Enduring Hope,and Dawnfeather Eagle are just a few. Maybe not the best, but it gives you a super cheap tribal until you can come up with something new.

Overall I like the deck, but I'm wondering about a few of your card choices. I expect many of them are driven by local meta, but I'm still curious.
Aven Mindcensor - obviously a good card in Stax but doesn't really advance your strategy.
Birthing Pod - I saw your explanation above but this seems fairly inefficient compared to other cards you could have in its place.
I'm also surprised there is no Sylvan Library. It's a fantastic draw engine, low CMC and fairly inexpensive.
Thanks for the deck!

With your enchantment to turn lands into creatures have you thought of possibly running Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite it would completely destroy your opponents Mana base and pretty much give you the win. On top of that you have a lot of destroy things and everyone searches for basic lands again have you thought of including Aven Mindcensor it would make it harder on your opponents to get any basics being able to only search the top 4 again you would lock your opponents board for the most part. I'm just not sure what would be worth cutting for either of them.
