i would also recommend Mycosynth Lattice with Consulate Crackdown if you wanted to be really mean

Thanks HOPMONSTER, card draw is indeed not too much in here...there's scroll rack, divining top, windfall. I've thought about Pull from Tomorrow, because it draws X and can turn the late game (if it gets so far).

Ivory mask is too expensive for that effect.

Karmic justice has been moved in and out of the deck several times, it mistly did next to nothing...at best someone lost one permanent to it, at worst the opponents played around it anyway, for example by exiling everything important with Consulate Crackdown. Padeem is better protection imo, because he also draws cards, maybe Hanna's Custody would be an option too

Open the vaults is too expensive for a two sided effect, I think Sun Titan is a much better recovery tool

Linvala...good, but there is Cursed Totem which is an artifact (and I'd like to use artifacts over coloured spells here to avoid mana problems and to be able to cast as much as possible with workshop, tomb and city and the mana artifacts), it costs only 2 and I don't need the one sided effect of Linvala because I play no creature with an activated ability myself ;)

What I might remove is Strionic Resonator because it is too situational. Pointing out the little card draw will probably make me cut this card.

Winterblast on Please Hold (Oloro Stax)

I play Stax is various variants myself and I can only suggest reducing your land total and replacing them with mana artifacts for 0-1 mana...and use all of the ones legal for commander: Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, Mox Opal, Mana Vault, Grim Monolith, Voltaic Key, Lotus Petal. You become much faster and avoid your own land destruction easily.

I would also Play Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Progress, Coalition Relic too (maybe instead of the Signets because they can produce mana themselves without paying 1 first).

Land Equilibrium is my all time favourite because it completely stops the game for everyone relying on lands. After a mass removal on lands no one can put a land into play unless you do - with lots of mana artifacts you won't ever need to do this and that's it then. Perfect synergies are Overburden, Mana Breach, Sunder (and the bounced lands can even be used for Card Advantage with Scroll Rack). It would require some adjustment of your mana base, especially adding all the mentioned artifacts, but it's a play style most opponents can't deal with. Maybe you can find some more ideas in my deck Absolutely Static Stax

Academy Rector is great with so many enchantments in the deck, especially to get out a killer Card like Humility. Nether Void, The Abyss and Consulate Crackdown are also nice to bring into play unexpectedly.

Thanks for commenting! I do appreciate when people leave meaningful comments on my decks!

I don't think that Teysa could really be the commander for this deck for a few of reasons,

  1. Kambal is a 3 drop, which means he can interact with players while they are still playing ramp cards and setting up, giving us a huge advantage right from the get go, and continues to be a thorn throughout the entire game. Also, since he is a 3 drop, he is not as hard to replay once he is removed from the field.

  2. The vast majority of cards in the deck are geared towards gaining life and using that life to trigger abilities while at the same time draining our opponents. Teysa doesn't enable us to have a significant source of lifegain early in the game that would allow us to start playing out our cards very quickly.

  3. While Teysa is outstanding at making sure you don't get attacked, she does nothing to stop combo/ramp decks and is as big of a target as Kambal (If not bigger) since people get that you can play card effects while hiding behind your own Teysa.

I agree that Diabolic Tutor is a good idea, even with Increasing Ambition already in the deck,which will be what I put in over Consulate Crackdown since your suggestions are in the upgrades section.

I thank you for your suggestions though!

Fantastic decklist. My only recommendations would be to swap Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts in as the commander. As expensive as she is to cast, she becomes an absolute wall, and if you have Whip of Erebos on the field she becomes unblockable life gain. Her or Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim.

I'd also say that the deck would benefit from Diabolic Tutor as well.

I don't think you need Consulate Crackdown (as good as it is) unless your playgroup is very artifact heavy. Swap in Debtors' Knell or Sheoldred, Whispering One there.

Chewy5150 on Odric's March

A few changes to main and sideboard. I tend to run mainboard Authority of the Consuls to get the lifegain and swing over new blockers, taps down those pesky red haste decks and I have no hesitation with losing 3 life to Anguished Unmaking which is a strong card at all times. The sideboard is ridiculous in shutting down artifact heavy decks and I've had a few ragequit's after a Consulate Crackdown snared 3 freshly minted Metalwork Colussus and all his artifacts.

Seriously considering Sigarda, Heron's Grace to replace Sorin, Grim Nemesis. Would make Odric, Lunarch marshall and Lone Rider  Flip hexproof at all times. I would use green mana off an aether hub.

I'm having better success against control decks with Eerie Interlude giving me a defence against Engulf the Shore and a resolved Kambal, Consul of Allocation slows them down a bit.

Any thoughts appreciated.

dlamars: Hmmm. Really depends what you're trying to hate on.

Rule of Law and Ethersworn Canonist shoot down combos.

Ghostly Prison and AEther Flash shoot down tokens.

Aura of Silence and Consulate Crackdown hit artifacts.

Manabarbs hits ramp players.

Rest in Peace hits GY players.

Et cetera :)
