Aven Mindcensor Discussion
2 hours ago
One win con you can definitely use to end games is Aetherflux Reservoir . Another way you can win is also Test of Endurance . Fun cards to abuse with life gain is Necrologia , Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim , and Karlov of the Ghost Council . Also Vedalken Orrery wouldn't be the worse card to gain access to flashing in spells.
Hope that helps!

For those of you curious. The current cards that are being removed for play testing other cards are the Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault combo, Gift of Immortality , and Iroas, God of Victory
Iroas, God of Victory will be a guaranteed cut from the deck the next time I update the list, it's more of a question on what will get put in to replace it. Top candidates atm are Lion's Eye Diamond , Magus of the Moon , Aven Mindcensor , and Trinisphere .

Probably tke out Defy Death and STW for Path to Exile , Glory-Bound is not great, I would cut it and add Thalia, Guardian of Thraben . Take out Fountain of Renewal , add Noble Hierarch . If thats a little on the WOWTHATSEXPENSIVE side, use Avacyn's Pilgrim . Seal Away is also probably worse then Path to Exile . ( Oust and Condemn are good replacements.) Aven Mindcensor could be a nice replacement for Cast Out , but not necesary.

Hey, dajuggerz - saw your note on my page so I thought I'd check out your deck and make a few suggestions. Overall you've got the right control/stax strategy for Teeg but here's a few more 'hate bear' creatures that Teeg likes: Aven Mindcensor , Fauna Shaman , Grand Abolisher , Kinjalli's Sunwing , Mother of Runes , Recruiter of the Guard , Runic Armasaur , Spirit of the Labyrinth , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben & Tocatli Honor Guard
Cheers and good luck with your build!

If you are going for a standard Stax route uyou can use a Teferi, Temporal Archmage and use it in conjunction with Stasis. Another way since your winning with Approach is also to use a Flash + Academy Rector to go into Omniscience/Enter the Infinite.
Back up condition can also be with Nexus of Fate once you get there. Some additional stax pieces that can help would be Aven Mindcensor, Land Equilibrium, Mystic Remora, Grafdigger's Cage, Mana Web, and Winter Orb.
I would also recommend more mana rocks to have an earlier Arbiter on the battlefield. Hope that helps!

++ So you are facing these two decks :
- Scion of the Ur-Dragon ; So this deck has a few ways it can be played :
. ("Casual dragon tribal")
and probably some more janky ways... But I've played against versions that spam out Mana dorks as well for a quick Win with either the "Insta-Gib" or "Hermit" win conditions as well as reanimator. Every version of this deck is comparably slow to the higher end CEDH decks out there. While it may surprise very very rarely with a super early victory they do both have access to Fire Covenant , Toxic Deluge , Red Elemental Blast , Pyroblast , Negate and other counterspells as well as Abrupt Decay and can be packed with artifact and enchantment removal...
- Prossh, Skyraider of Kher ; This deck is mainly focused on Food Chain while General tazri does it way better and faster this deck also plays an assortment of mana dorks to try speed up the process and also has access to the same wipes and control as mentioned above except it doesn't have ... Nothing extra special here though.
Conclusion: Both decks suffer from an early sphere and orb effect Like any other CEDH deck, but these suffer a tad harder as they still need to amass a certain amount of mana to blow out their win conditions compared to the fast decks that run under 2 - 3 mana (like a hermit/hulk deck).
Depending on your meta: if it's more casual The likes of Gaddock Teeg stop most of the late game wipes and the common sphere effects will delay the faster ones so you can aggressively tap their mana under orb effects... If none of the above if accessible you either kept a bad hand and didn't really have a gameplan with your opening hand or they raced out the right things at the right time which happens...
(If both are actively just focusing you because they think it's fun let them collude! Just find Cards that utterly Wreck what they are trying to do and actively search for those in games!!!)
Sanctum Prelate on also works wonders in this matchup as it stops food chain as well as the faster wipes like deluge and covenant...
Also prioritizing hate/Stax that is unaffected during a creature board wipe will genuinely result in a positive outcome for you. While not always Obvious at first some cards just also stop what they want to do in the future like recently I pulled a turn 1 Aven Mindcensor in response to end step fetching shenanigans while hitting a tutor at the same time from someone else... (Good Scoop!)... Grave hate might work for reanimator versions and Rule of law effects stops Prossh from going infinite. Linvala also does wonders if they are on a lot of dorks... Just got to Mulligan far more aggressively... (Down to 4 is possible but 5 is the recommended low!)
(If you come across problem cards feel free to leave them here and we will try and find answers for you!)

if the thing you want is to have a deck focused on flying creatures or spells without good or bad additions, why not make a commander deck? if you already got the colors figured out you could use Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage, Azor, the Lawbringer or even Medomai the Ageless. with that combination you got a lot of ways to control the board and protection for your creatures, and add 40 more cards to the deck. Aboshan's Desire, Flood, Tidal Flats, Spirit Bonds, Invocation of Saint Traft, Angelic Favor, Entreat the Angels, Tidal Surge, Decree of Justice, Battle Screech, March of Souls, Descend upon the Sinful, Storm Herd are cards that you could use in commander but not in this deck... if you want to have a reliable way to trigger Sigil of the Empty Throne you can use Flickering Ward, Shimmering Wings, Conviction, Brilliant Halo, Gossamer Chains, Viscerid Armor, Ephara's Enlightenment and others. Aven Mindcensor, Mana Short, Boomerang, Standstill, Magus of the Moat, Bident of Thassa, Sigil of the New Dawn, Hindering Light, Supreme Verdict.
ooor make a pauper deck edh or a normal one... :P

Hey, other competitive cards to consider:
- Delay: with Lavinia this exiles the spell you counter since it's countered when the time counters run out because no mana was used to cast it.
- Mystic Remora
- Rhystic Study
- Containment Priest: this stops reanimation which is a way an opponent can play around Lavinia and get around land lockdown.
- Aven Mindcensor: deny your opponents from being able to tutor directly for an answer.
- Snapcaster Mage
- Whir of Invention: instant tutor for and put onto the battlefield Pool or Omen.
- Wrath of God
- Luminarch Ascension: can be another win condition when you have your opponents in lockdown.
- Back to Basics
- Talisman of Progress: two drop Azorius mana rock.
- Helm of Obedience: another win condition in combination with Rest in Peace.
The avg. CMC here is 3.6, that's high for a competitive deck. Most of my suggestions are lower mana cost cards to help to reduce the avg. CMC. Several cards are increasing the avg CMC that you will only be able to realistically cast with a Dream Halls in play. Several of these cards are ones that I suggest you cut.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Memory Lapse
- Grand Arbiter Augustin IV: he allows your opponents to cast mana cards since they no longer cost 0 mana instead they cost 1 mana. He negates Lavinia ability to counter spells that are cast with no mana.
- Plea for Guidance
- Emergency Powers
- Path to Exile: don't want to give your opponent a land.
- Always Watching
- Spear of Heliod
- Mesmeric Orb
- Enchanted Evening: don't give your opponents an easier way of beating you by making all your permanents enchantments. Not worth it as a possible win condition with Opalescence.
- Eye of the Storm
- Sphinx-Bone Wand
- Enter the Infinite
- Narset Transcendent: Jace, Karn and Ugin are the most powerful Planeswalkers, they are all you need.
- Teferi, Temporal Archmage
- Will Kenrith
Good luck with your deck.
