Azami, Lady of Scrolls Discussion

Yeah, and storm is overrated IMO, trust me, there are many reasons I think that a 99 card colorless stax deck without a commander is able to compete in High Powered, not Competitive, not 'Maximum Powered,' but it is as good, relatively to almost each and every other High-Powered list I have tested out, meaning it is equal in winrate to the following lists from a set of hundreds of games against the Tier 1-2 lists:
Xira Arien Paradox Storm, Azami, Lady of Scrolls Paradox Combo-Control, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker Token-Combo, Talrand, Sky Summoner Control&Extra Turns, Gaddock Teeg Creature-Stax/Hatebears, Sliver Queen Combo, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir Lockout Combo, Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow turns, Zada, Hedron Grinder storm, Dralnu, Lich Lord Paradox Storm, Inalla, Archmage Ritualist Infinite Turn Combo, Ishkanah, Grafwidow Food Chain, Shattergang Brothers stax, Nin, the Pain Artist IsoRev Combo, Selvala, Explorer Returned Combo-Stax, Seton, Krosan Protector ElfBall/Druid Tribal, and The Locust God combo.

Uber-Fast Yisan, Wanderer Bard - A very competitive deck designed to shut down all board interaction and win with infinite mana asap. This deck can usually take our playgroup's table 3v1.
Super-Aggro Najeela, the Blade-Blossom - Gets a very large ammount of warriors very fast. Runs all the usual combat tricks you would expect from aggro.
As you can see, even if my spells were to resolve, I still have a boat load of scary things swinging in every turn. I need the counters in my deck just to keep my head above water. Let me know what you guys think I should cut and if there's any more helpful adds.

Extra turn spells are particularly only good if you can abuse them, take Narset for example, however nearly any command that has a good value-oriented ability that can trigger once-per turn or a set number of times per turn will appreciate them, Azami, Lady of Scrolls can be built wih extra turn spells in mind specifically because the additional untap allows them to draw many more cards, given an appropriately sized field, and the ability to draw another extra turn spell, rinse and repeat will be incredible advantage, commonly an instant win.
If you don't have a consistent engine for maximizing the value of a card like Time Warp, many decks that would still run it use it for one of a few things. If you can double up on spells, such as with effects like Fork, or have some amount ability in using the cast trigger, like with a commander like Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder, it can be worth it. If none of these are true, like Gitaxian Probe, don't run it.

thegigibeast here are some of my thoughts on the matter, dunno if it helps!
Wait... Myojin of Seeing Winds is tier 5? That is the best Omni-Show deck in the format, being surprisingly powerful with proper gameplay, running as a controling sort of deck before dropping Omniscience and going all Super-Saiyan and drawing the deck and casting it all for free. It uses it because when you get Omni out you can cast your commander, then Chain of Vapor, Into the Roil, Snap, and Blink of an Eye it to hand and draw into more bounce and card draw to draw more bounce to bounce Myojin and keep storming off until it hits Enter the Infinite and wins. Surprisingly a really sweet list. Tier 4?
Also, Ragnar is Tier 5? That is the second best commander for creature-based bant stax decks, very close to Derevi. I mean, protecting the other creatures you run is really important, and Mother of Runes and Sylvan Safekeeper can't do a ton against sweepers like Austere Command, so Ragnar really helps the list. Tier 3 for me.
Ayesha Tanaka is a reasonably powerful commander for Azorius Stax, stopping many cards such as Basalt Monolith's untap, Grim Monolith's untap, Dramatic Reversal, Strionic Resonator, Aetherflux Reservoir, etc. Tier 4.
Dosan the Falling Leaf is a reasonably well-powered elf-ball commander, helping out stopping almost any interaction on combo-turn. It really is good, despite not being an elf, it is low-costed enough to be cast on turn two from a turn one elf, and easily go off turn three given little hate. Tier 3.
In tier 4... well there are a lot I disagree with:
Adun Oakenshield is a powerful midrange-combo commander, being good with Hermit Druid lines in a way most aren't. The line is a simple one, using Morselhoarder, Devoted Druid, Dread Return, Necrotic Ooze, and Walking Ballista, yet also is surprisingly powerful with the ability to use the commander to rebuild if the combo is disrupted, using Krosan Reclamation to bring cards back into the deck immediately and Riftsweeper to shuffle back in the Reclamation, the list also can use Adun to bring back key cards to attempt to recombo out the very next turn, given sufficient mana. Backup wincon in Survival of the Fittest/Protean Hulk/Apprentice Necromancer in case you can't access the druid. Tier 3 (Similar to Xira Arien in terms of as a card and power level).
Anafenza, the Foremost has been already discussed, and is much, much more powerful as a stax/hatebears commander than a load of currently much higher rated lists. Tier 2-3?
Dragonlord Dromoka is a commander that always surprises me as a really impressive commander for stax. It even has a relatively effective wincon in beatdown. Being able to stop interaction on your turn, laying out a thicker field of stax, every following turn, while also having a commander that is difficult to interact with (dependent on interaction) is really much stronger than people expect when they see the 6 cmc. Tier 3.
Eladamri, Lord of Leaves is another good option for elfball, leaving extremely little interaction. It can be targetted itself because it was errated, but it is a cheap, effective wall against targetted removal, and so should be considered more often in comparison to other lists. Tier 3 is my pick.
Heidar, Rimewind Master I have only seen once, and it didn't do amazingly, but after I looked at the list was a reasonable Dramatic Reversal Isochron Scepter list that uses all snow lands except for an Ancient Tomb using Scrying Sheets really well. The commander isn't amazing, but the interaction hitting nearly anything while being able to synergize with the countermagic suite the deck runs really seems good in the grindier games, in which it disables most other decks' combos for a turn or so if it sticks. Tier 3?
Linvala, Keeper of Silence is one of the better mono-white stax lists, along with Hokori, Dust Drinker, I would imagine they are better in the current metagame than most would expect. Tier 3 seems reasonable for both.
Masako the Humorless should be tier 5. I don't think this ability is useful at all in cEDH, and when we have Atogatog in tier 5, a commander that could replace many old Scions and Najeelas in the C-Zone and no one would notice in tier 1-2, this card shouldn't be considered tier 4.
I will write up lists for these if you want, but I think most speak for themselves.

I first started running Animar back when a friend wanted me to play with him in some small two-headed Giant EDH tournaments that a LGS had decided to run. I built Animar and an Azami, Lady of Scrolls deck as partner decks with a bunch of interconnecting combos and interactions. I had Weird Harvest either in the deck or as a sideboard option, I can't remember. The idea was that even if the opponents got to tutor for creatures as well it wouldn't matter because the Azami deck would grab cards like Vendilion Clique, Patron Wizard, Venser, Shaper Savant, and Voidmage Prodigy to interrupt whatever the opponents searched up and let Animar combo off.
On the whole though, I think that Weird Harvest is far too high risk for its potential payoff. I consider it to be about three times more risky than Aluren. And if you aren't also running Peregrine Drake I think that it is pretty much unplayable. If you had the Drake then in the mid-game there is a chance to cast Weird Harvest where X is 3, so 5 mana total, and fetch up two combo creatures and the Drake to untap a bunch of lands so that you could cast those creatures on the same turn. Without the Drake, you are likely to have to wait a turn after giving each of your opponents 3 cards. Even if you only cast the Harvest where X is 1, there are some very real fears regarding Flash Hulk that were voiced in the chat. The deal gets even worse for you if one of your opponents happens to have a counter or removal to stop the card you tutored for.
I can still picture times where the Harvest could pull your butt out of the fire, but when you would be able to cast it profitably would be so dependent on the board state that I wouldn't be willing to place any bets on how consistent it would be to run.
Someone in the chat explained the order for the Kiri combo. I remember seeing it used in some older lists that I found on Reddit but I think that having a 5CMC makes it a bit of a rough pick. It has applications for more budget builds but it would have been so much better if Kiri was 4CMC instead of 5.

Instead, for bodies I've decided to use alot of draw in the form of Arcanis the Omnipotent, Azami, Lady of Scrolls, Kefnet the Mindful and to make up for the major loss in disruption (somewhat) Tidespout Tyrant. Commander's Sphere is slightly slower but makes a fine rock that comes in untapped and Gridlock and Aqueous Form to keep a consistent Instant and Enchantment count while still getting the job done. After a few test hands it seems to work out, so I'm looking forward to subbing them in when necessary even after i get the correct cards.
Sorry for the long comment, as it was mostly for me. I'm pretty new around here, but I think the draw creatures at least could be useful and potentially make room for other switches.
