Kismet or Frozen AEther and Chronatog to combo off with Stasis.

If you just want to be a jerk Stasis and Frozen AEther work juuust nicely to have every one just sit and do nothing. Add Chronatog into to the mix and just slowly watch them helplessly struggle to death. Btw this is Calvin from camp. I hope these cards make this deck even more unfun!

Stasis + Frozen AEther

Add Forsaken City to keep Stasis alive, or Chronatog to skip all your turns ;)

Interested in Stasis? Check out my pet-deck:

Glad to help once again.

Grand Arbiter Augustin IV stax deck? I usually stay away from stax because I think the format should be about fun, but in cEDH, it has proven to be effective.

First, I'd start off with a subtheme to the stax. Either (completely or near) creatureless, activated ability-less, or etb-less. Here are some examples for the subthemes I'm pitching:

  • Feroz's Ban - I recommend a deck like this, because soooo many decks and combos rely of creatuers. If you can lock out the creatures, then you lock out much of what your opponent can do to actually win.
  • Null Rod - Honestly one of the best decks I've seen. The main combo is Null Rod + Mycosynth Lattice to basically lock everyone's lands away. You, yourself, can essentially play things for free with cards like Grand Arbiter Augustin IV and Urza's Incubator.
  • Torpor Orb - This kind of stax can be found everywhere, but now with Panharmonicon being a thing, that beautiful orb absolutely rekts tokens, aggro, and combo decks.
  • Once you have that the subtheme set, you need to figure out what cards you'll need for that. Obviously start with the most similar cards and then ways for you to either get around those effects or syngergise with them altogether.

    I don't want to give recommendations because the subthemes are so diverse and can be focused heavily on that play. If you want a more round game-play that basically consists of all three subthemes, then I'd like to know that as well before suggesting.

    And lastly, before I go, I got the perfect hard lock for you.

    oh yes... Show

    Smokestack + Chronatog

    Simply get smokestack up to several soot counters and then start skipping your turns while all of your opponents are forced to sac everything until they have nothing.

    Yes. Unless otherwise stated, abilities can be used as many times as you'd like, provided you can pay the cost each time. An example of an activated ability with a restriction on how many times you can use it a turn is on Chronatog, which has the restriction of only once per turn.

    So in the case of Marath, you have to have X mana and be able to remove X +1/+1 counters from it each time you want to make an X/X token.

    Superpowers9 Chronatog is used to skip all your turns. Once Stasis and Frozen AEther is in play you skip your turns so your opponent has to draw all his cards and lose

    OK well there is the traditional Tangle Wire, Winter Orb, Static Orb etc to hurt their resources.

    Using things that make Tax opponents like Monastery Siege, Lodestone Golem, Leonin Arbiter, Aura of Silence, Rhystic Study, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV will keep them from playing threats.

    From there you can use a Smokestack and Chronatog to lock them out.

    You can also use Spirit of the Labyrinth with Teferi's Puzzle Box, Wheel and Deal or Windfall to hurt their hand size.

    If you want a more artifact build, I have one but generally speaking it revolves around Unwinding Clock and a lot of mana rocks like Sol Ring, Gilded Lotus, Worn Powerstone etc. The win condition generally is infinite mana with a way to get opponents to either draw their library via Blue Sun's Zenith or mill with Ambassador Laquatus.
