I see your point and I decided to add it to sideboard with a bunch of other fun cards to test and i'm also wondering if i should put Council of the Absolute in main board or not. Thank you for all of the comments

Well, like I said the deck started out with just stuff that I had around. I'm going to add more to the deck and improve it so I figured it'd be best to see if I should stick with Lavinia of the Tenth . I figured there are better commanders for U/W but that doesn't necessarily mean lavinia is bad you know what I mean. I guess it really depends on the decks your opponents play on how effective Lavinia can be. If they run a lot of lower cost stuff bouncing lavinia every turn can be devastating to them, but then again if they run a lot of higher CMC stuff she's useless. I thought maybe there might be enough flicker/detain type stuff that a decent deck might be possible. If I switch I think Isperia, Supreme Judge might be my next option cause my buddy has one and she'd be easy to acquire. If not my other U/W options are Daxos of Meletis , Medomai the Ageless , or Council of the Absolute .

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. Price
