Boseiju, Who Shelters All Discussion

Maybe try Boseiju, Who Shelters All instead of Cavern of Souls is a bit money saving. But you have to pay in blood. :D

Eilel thank you for that! I actually play tested it last night and it was honestly the most fun I've had in magic in a long time! If you have the cards for this is highly recommend playing it! I did have some minor card substitutions in my physical copy because my local shop is sold out of Boseiju, Who Shelters All so instead I'm using Mikokoro, Center of the Sea and waiting awhile to purchase the Academy Ruins but overall, the deck was super fun!

I understand that the deck would lose a bit of its elegance, but you could add Boseiju, Who Shelters All, Imp's Mischief, Dark Ritual, and Amulet of Vigor to make the deck a bit more resilient on its combo turn :)

You are then able to prevent a counterspell targeted at Skirge Familiar, and make your Exsanguinate uncounterable. Of course, they could have just countered your Ad Nauseam, but...

I like it, +1 from me :) I once upon build a joke version following a similar model: *RETIRED* Dying Dangerously: Sidisi II EDH

I'd definitely up the Gamble count and find room in the lands for Boseiju, Who Shelters All to protect your Scapeshift. Probably only 1 or 2 copies.

Great deck! I thought of building one myself and its a good reference for me. I'd strongly recommend Boseiju, Who Shelters All for more reliable spells, Desolate Lighthouse along with Temple of Epiphany to enhance chances of controlling your first card and Mirrorpool because of obvious reasons. Some new cards in Kaladesh and Conspiracy that might be worth for you to consider : Spirebluff Canal, Insidious Will and Expropriate.

Also 1 Boseiju, Who Shelters All in the sb would be good against control

Before I begin I want you to ask yourself if you want to build this deck more control focused or extra turn focused. Each has their own upside, but in my opinion the control focused build is a lot more competitive and consistent. As a person who has been running Azami, Lady of Scrolls almost exclusively for about 2 years now and has piloted both Temporal Azami and Control Azami, I think I can say I know what I'm talking about. From the looks of this list currently, it looks like you're leaning more towards extra turns. Whatever you do, don't try to make your list into a hard control / extra turn hybrid because it won't work well.

Definite cuts you should make:

Arcanis the Omnipotent

Brine Elemental



Ertai, Wizard Adept

Tidespout Tyrant

Vesuvan Shapeshifter


Boseiju, Who Shelters All



Leyline of Anticipation


Logic Knot

Grip of Amnesia


Cards you may want to consider cutting once you make this list more competitive:

Kira, Great Glass-Spinner

Docent of Perfection  Flip

Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir

Sower of Temptation

Patron Wizard


Time Stretch

Voidmage Prodigy

Crucible of Worlds

Gilded Lotus

Ghost Quarter

Academy Ruins

Riptide Laboratory

Seat of the Synod

Tectonic Edge


Strip Mine

Reliquary Tower

Venser, Shaper Savant(cut this if you decide to go control focused)

Glen Elendra Archmage(cut this if you decide to go control focused)

Your Planeswalkers

Cards mentioned in the comments you should NOT run:

Temple Bell

Gauntlet of Power

Caged Sun


Blue Sun's Zenith (Only run this if you REALLY need an alternative wincon)

Stroke of Genius

Cards mentioned in the comments that you should run.

Jace, the Mind Sculptor (Only if you are going with a hard control build, not extra turn build)

Mental Misstep

Muddle the Mixture

Mana Crypt

Swan Song

Arcane Denial

Dispel (Flusterstorm is better, but still not bad)

Dig Through Time(For control focused list)

Fact or Fiction(For control focused list)

Cards that I think are good that you should run:


Dramatic reversal / Isochron Scepter combo

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip (More of a control based wizard)

Sensei's Divining Top

Scroll Rack

Sage of Epityr

Martyr of Frost


These are my suggestions for now, if you have any questions I'll be happy to explain.

Honestly, I'd run both if you can swing the price tag. Boseiju, Who Shelters All and Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir have some overlap, but they do different things. Boseiju won't protect Stasis from being countered, but it will assist a lot of your other spells. Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir and Stasis becomes a pretty brutal lockdown.
