Azami, Lady of Scrolls Discussion
3 days ago
Roryrai The games I've played and won with it have been using Grand Architect and Pili-Pala to generate infinite mana to mill my opponent with Ambassador Laquatus or Azami, Lady of Scrolls with Mind Over Matter and Laboratory Maniac. I don't usually play blue and this is the first deck I've made with any counter magic in it and I want it to be a relatively competitive deck but I'm truthfully not very versed in mono-blue construction

Love Azami decks! +1.
Azami, Lady of Scrolls+Mind Over Matter+Laboratory Maniac is the most busted combo. It is so easy to establish with Azami. You basically just need to find MoM and have two Cards in hand and three mana up = win.

Neither of your infinite mana combo are actually infinite mana outlets. The problem is that all of them are using card draw to fuel them and at some point your library will run out. Plus Azami, Lady of Scrolls + Mind Over Matter doesn't actually net you anything - You draw a card with Azami, only to discard it to untap her. She lets you dig, but that's it. With 99 cards in your deck, This means that with the Arcanis the Omnipotent engine you can net a mximum of 66 cards (99 drawn, 33 discarded to untap him). Using Inalla (which I'm presuimng is your primary win condition) You can do a grand total of (65/5)X7 = 77 damage, which isn't enough to wipe the board (you technically need 126 = (7X6)X3 to win assuming no opponent has gained life).
Adding a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth however makes the combo viable as you can draw your deck, discard it all and then pitch Kozilek to reshuffle it. But again, that combo only works with Arcanis, not Azami. Just some food for thought.

With C17 being spoiled in full today, we can add quite a lot of cards to the list.
Ovsiously all 5 of the reprinted FRF dragons (i.e Ojutai, Soul of Winter) are from Tarkir. So are both Taigams.
Marchesa, the Black Rose is from Fiora.
Not positive but I believe both the Ur-Dragon and his scion are from Dominaria.
You already have the 5 wedge dragons from dominaria, now their shard colored counterparts (i.e Crosis, the Purger) can join them.
Edgar Markov is innistrad.
Raksha Golden Cub is from Mirrodin.
Nazahn is unknown but Im gonna guess he's from Mirrodin.
Both niv-mizzets are from Ravnica.
Arahbo, Balan, Kess, Licia, Mathas, Vela, and Inalla are unknown.

Ok, so as I saw a lot of people have already put up their impressions about the new cards being spoiled, but I just want to hop in the hype train and do the same ;) So here are the images of the cards and what I think about them:
Will this one replace Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge? Probably, but at the same time her ability is somewhat different. As stated before, she can't cheat big CMC spells, but I think the pros are enough to play her instead as de facto grixis storm commander. She can be used the turn she comes into play, and you can play any instant or sorcery from your graveyards back once per turn. I mean, this can be pretty powerful with rituals such as Dark Ritualor Cabal Ritual, but I think a mucktide deck can use it really better and play back High Tideor Bubbling Mucktwice. This is a pretty solid general, Tier 1
This is far less esciting for multiplayer commander, and I would say Tier 4/5. However, if you are playing Duel Commander, either MTGO or French, this will be a powerhouse in this format. This list is about multiplayer though, so not really good for us.
Meh... Maybe I am missing something, but this is not really exciting for us. Pretty voltron, and the clause that you can use the ability only once per turn during your turn makes it nothing but Tier 4 in my opinion. Maybe I am missing something but...
This is already a better vampire. With the tokens he creates, we could think about some stax builds, using the tokens as fodders or ways to break parity... There are some restrictions but... And he could be used as a finisher to pump your entire army after that, closing by combat after a lock. Tier 3
This one got me excited. I mean, I know it is a 4 mana commander, but there could be some ways to win on the spot. Many people have said it is a worst Necrotic Ooze in the command zone, but I would say it is more than that. This could be used to make a grixis nooze deck, or something similar, and I think it could be pretty good. We could use Mirror-Mad Phantasm with our commander to pitch the entire deck in the graveyard, Dread Returnsomething and win from there. I wont list the entire combo here but you guyz understand. I could also see something good by exiling a mana rock such as Gilded Lotusand having some fun with Paradox Engine. A lot of combos available, this as a lot of potential. Tier 2, at least 2.5
Not sure about this one, but he seems good for a control shell with a big reanimator package. Simply by being on the battlefield, he can let you dig a lot AND throw useless big creatures like Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur(useless cause you wont cast them) into the graveyard, ready for reanimation. I think he could be better than The Scarab God, letting you dig better IMO. This as some potential, i would see Tier 2.5
High cost, nothing for combos, needs to connect with damage... Tier 5/4
Well, too slow to be an actual thing, but still has some great effects if it ever sticks around. Simply for that, Tier 4
I could see this used as a stax deck, forcing opponents to get rid of creatures, and if they dont have any, create fodders to break parity on stax effects. Small potential, better commanders available out there, but still a good Tier 3
The most competitive deck I would think about right now would be running some elves as mana dorks and many hatebears. The thing is... Why running this over Captain Sisay...? Still, I would say this is Tier 3
The best idea I had so far would be running this as an elfball commander to be able to fetch Umbral Mantleor Sword of the Parunsfrom the command zone. Easy Tier 3, even if better commanders for elfball in those colors are available (like Selvala, Explorer Returned).
Meh, I dont really like this one, I don't know what to say except he reminds me of Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist... Tier 4
Now, I don't know if you guyz are excited like me about this one, but I think it will end up pretty decent (At least Tier 2.5 for now). There are lots of good wizards that can abuse the ETB, like Archaeomancer to go infinite with High Tideand Snap, Snapcaster Mage, Dualcaster Mage + Demonic Tutorto get both Ghostly Flicker and Essence Fluxand go infinite from there, Venser, Shaper Savant to combo with Paradox Engine or to simply be a big Boomerang, Azami, Lady of Scrollsherself could be in the deck... Many ways to abuse, many combos available I am pretty sure. Abusing spells like Ghostly Flickerand Essence Flux seems pretty good with this too.
This one will end up decent. There are lots of brews actually with this guy, from extra turns to control to Approach of the Second Sun, and I am sure we will end up with something good. Tier 2.5 for now.
Well... This is my favorite one from the set, so I am biased for sure, but I see a lot of potential in this guy as a storm commander (Tier 1) that could also be used as a 5c artifacts combo commander. Generating free mana is super important for storm, and the fact that he can be cast from fast mana is simply nuts. We are not even obligated to play him as a 5c commander, we simply need to cast 5 mono-colored spells to generate 10 mana and continue storming, which is I think pretty strong. This one will end up being the most powerful (alongside with Kess) from the precons I think.
Thoughts? Those are my comments on the spoiled legends, but I would like to know what you guyz think about the placements I have done. I am pretty happy to see all those new cards. Probably not as a big impact as last year's commander decks, but some pretty powerful commanders for sure. Tagging you sonnet666.

I think it will be a control deck, the goal would be to do most of your action on the end-step of the opponent before you (I expect to see cards like Azami, Lady of Scrolls, Arcanis the Omnipotent and maybe even Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir)
Honestly, of those 3 cards are in the deck, I'll just buy it because I think it'll be very strong.

Replace Arcanis the Omnipotent with Azami, Lady of Scrolls and you don't need haste. (Tap Azami and Lab Maniac to draw 2.) That's basically a DIY Angel of Glory's Rise combo, but that only requires you to have a Hermit Druid on the field and a deck with no basic lands. ;)

Just out of curiosity, why is Azami, Lady of Scrolls not higher on the list (preferably Tier 1.5)?
