I have actually thought about Detention Sphere , I just didn't have any lying around..... They are definitely on my list..... I have recently received Sundial of the Infinite Ring of Three Wishes and a few more Council of the Absolute to shake things up..... but I am definitely changing back to Azorius.

I Have: Mind Unbound + you need Enlightened Tutor , Grand Arbiter Augustin IV , Meddling Mage , Time Warp , Bident of Thassa (to trigger Isperia+ normal card draw), and Council of the Absolute .

The deck you have here is more of an azorius aura midrange. Though i would say move the Council of the Absolute to the sideboard, and swap out Imposing Sovereign for Blind Obedience . (also Seachrome Coast is not in standard so if you took it to a standard FNM you would be DQ'd.) Hope this helped! +1 ;)

Council of the Absolute can only have one card named at a time. When you exile it with Triad of Fates , it will "forget" the card it named last time and only have the new card you named.

if I were to exile and return Council of the Absolute with triads of fate ability can I keep choosing different cards for them to cast not letting them play their deck

I can't believe i got the wrong name in the title. Always get those two cards mixed up! Thanks for the correction!

I am curious as to why the hexproof flyer instead of a card like Council of the Absolute which keeps things like Supreme Verdict and Detention Sphere from controlling your field.

It is called Bant Biomancer with no Master Biomancer !! head explodes lol. Anyway I like the scheme here it's very solid. I agree with Render Silent over Dissolve , because Dissolve is a terrible card in practice especially in a three color deck. Have you considered Ascended Lawmage for the sideboard? I think he would be good for you against MBD or RDW and the like. I would go with him over Council of the Absolute in the SB. That's really my only suggestion, the rest looks great. +1 for Bant, the best three color combo imo.

Would Council of the Absolute lower the cost of x in the cost of Sphinx's Revelation ? As in, if i play the council naming Sphinx's Revelation , and then pay 1WUU, would I get 3 cards out of that because 3-2(from the council)=1? Price
