Aven Mindcensor Discussion

I dont think this deck will function anything like you intend
Oloro is banned in 1v1 commander, and your opponents will do the opposite of ignoring you with him in the command zone, in fact most oloro control games i've played you are almost always the archenemy, oloro is NOT a deck to ignore and if you want people to ignore you you should consider a commander that isnt banned and infamous, such as a group hug one like Zedruu the Greathearted
Between playing oloro and controlling everyones board, being ignored is the last thing on opponents mind, so you should ve playing as an archenemy rather than an invisible player, oloro is one of the farthest commanders from invisible lol :/
That said, this looks nearly identical to my oloro stax listExcept that your lack of creatures is disturbing, i understand its not a creature heavy deck but nevertheless things like Dark Confidant, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip Snapcaster Mage, Ethersworn Canonist, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Reflector Mage Containment Priest and Aven Mindcensor contribute to the game plan via control, card draw and recursion while providing you with chump blockers to protect against any creatures that survive board wipes

Good idea. I'll get that in there once I obtain one.
Candelabra isn't a must have. It's very good for fixing mana and for breaking Gaea's Cradle and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, but you've got plenty of other ways to make that stuff happen (albeit not at 1 mana).
How do you posture for a win? The answer is very similar to the prison version of Derevi. Don't let others win. I.e., rather than looking first at how you can assemble a game winning combo, look instead at the lines you're expecting from your opponents. Universally strong early plays include Root Maze, Stony Silence, Rest in Peace, Meddling Mage, Aven Mindcensor, Sanctum Prelate, etc. Once you've got opponents awkwardly trying to remove hurdles, go for Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Fauna Shaman, or Edric, Spymaster of Trest to generate value. Once you've got Patron Wizard, Voidmage Prodigy, Seedborn Muse, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, or Galecaster Colossus in play, you're playing easy mode.
re Vedalken Aethermage, it was originally in the list, but wound up being largely unnecessary. Green has so many dependable creature tutors, I always found myself pitching him to Survival/Fauna Shaman.

I know this is super specific, but I was curious - Aven Mindcensor prevents searching, not looking at, correct? For instance, if I used Army of the Damned + The Scarab God , I'd have Scry 13 every turn. Aven Mindcensor wouldn't limit that down to 4, would it? It would still Scry 13?
EDIT: Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, I didn't see a better place to put it.

I like the deck but I think you need to try lowering your mana curve; Modern is a brutally fast format and it's easy to fall behind if you end up with a clunky hand that doesn't do much in the early turns. Flyers are never going to be the most aggressive creatures, however, so I'd also look at creatures that help disrupt and slow the opponents game-plan.
I'd definitely look to add Selfless Spirit, Mausoleum Wanderer and Pride of the Clouds as they're just powerful creatures that fit what you're trying to do. Aven Mindcensor, Hushwing Gryff, Vryn Wingmare are Lyev Skyknight could be good additions, depending on what decks you expect to face (maybe just in the sideboard though). Cloudfin Raptor and Loyal Pegasus might be a little too unreliable but I'd give them a test as aggressive 1-drops. Squadron Hawk isn't that aggressive or disruptive but it's card advantage in creature form, which is useful.
To make space I'd start by removing the Dragonlord Ojutai and Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, which while powerful don't really seem to fit the overall plan of the deck. Warden of Evos Isle might not be worth it anymore since I'm suggesting dropping the curve anyway and Nimble Obstructionist seems too situational to run 3 in the maindeck, although I've never played with it so maybe I'm underestimating it.

I may try the Aven Mindcensor, but if you think i wont have any problems then i'm fine with keeping what i have

Path to Exile is by far the best removal in white so it shouldn't be replaced and as you face more competitive decks they will play less and less basics meaning Path has no downside; it can also be used on one of your creatures so you hit a land drop.
