Azor, the Lawbringer Discussion

Boza on Azor and Dosan/Solitude interactions

Well, Azor and his decree apply only to instants and sorceries, so any other spells is OK. And is only in effect for one turn of an opponent. Grand Abolisher is a white version of City of Solitude or Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir for a blue-colored one.

That said, if you have City of Solitude and Azor, the Lawbringer's effect resolves, opponents will not be able to cast instants and sorceries until after their next turn.

Hi guys,

I was browsing the site and saw City of Solitude on someone's deck (which made me think about how nice it would be if I somehow managed to play green with Azor, maybe darevi?)... anyway, thinking about Azor, the Lawbringer (or Sphinx’s Decree) who says opponents can't play spells in their own turn (But can still cast instants in other players' turns), and the effects from Dosan the Falling Leaf or the abovementioned City of Solitude, where players can only cast in their own turns.. would this block players from casting spells completely when Azor hits the field?

Like this a lot as well! Im thinking of adding Decree of Silence and Solemnity as a combo to really become super controlling. Kira, Great Glass-Spinner is amazing protection for your creatures and includes herself. I really love Venser, the Sojourner. His +2 is amazing. With Azor, the Lawbringer out swing and use his activated ability and then blink him in the second main every turn. Your opponents get locked down hard when hes blinked continuously. Plus you keep him up as a blocker.

I like the concept, but this deck is severely lacking of a win condition. Carnage Tyrant is the closest thing, but if you're planning get one of those to swing for 20 over 4 turns, good luck. As for Azor, the Lawbringer, he's just not standard playable, especially with a 3 color deck. We're in a pretty aggro/tribal dominated meta rn, and this deck just doesn't account for that.

@MordMetal - Mainly Azor, the Lawbringer is getting the add. Definitely can't justify not including him.

@Seetigermage - That's just blue decks for ya. It gets that way. An ideal game, you'd get him out that early. But there are those games where I don't get to go off until as late as turn 6. If I see someone is going to give me crap for casting Brago, I wait until I have something to keep him out. Luckily, everything in the deck CAN work without our main man. He's more of an abuser, making everything have more value. Oh, and politics are key. Act like you're the only guy who can stop that guy. Most of my wins come from a sneak victory, stalling the whole game. Or I draw Bribery and search that dick's Mayael deck.

Hi! Fun deck!

Favorable Winds and Isperia the Inscrutable are great for flying tribal! Isperia has insane synergy with your commander.

Medomai the Ageless and Azor, the Lawbringer are just good flying creatures.

Hope these help! Good luck!

These are the cards from Rivals of Ixalan that made it onto one or two of my lists:

Did I miss anything from RIX? Did I miss anything from another set? What list should I make next? Leave your feedback here or on any of my 22 lists! Thanks!

Cool deck, Have you thought of adding more protection for Azor, the Lawbringer? I would hate too see him played then removed after paying 6 mana. You could also put protection on your combo pieces if your combo'ing out. +1!
