As Council of the Absolute enters the battlefield, name a card other than a creature or land card.
Your opponents can't cast cards with the chosen name.
Spells with the chosen name you cast cost 2 less to cast.

For a deck that requires a lot of mana having 20 will be difficult to pull of the full potential of the deck effectively. The deck may require more copies of your main cards to increase the chances of drawing them. Many of the cards here are not really necessary such as Defang which can be replaced with Pacifism and replace Council of the Absolute with Grand Arbiter Augustin IV . You can build around the flying mechanic getting Favorable Winds , Judge's Familiar , Pride of the Clouds for damage while you control. Cloudshift will help you use your detain abilities again and again, Conjurer's Closet as well. Oblivion Ring , and Banishing Light can get rid of opponent planeswalkers Sphinx's Revelation is good too if you have the budget too. :)
how do you feel about Council of the Absolute its great for keeping things from being played. usually i would suggest it for an edh deck but since he has 4 toughness i figure he can put in some blocking work for a while
Just realized I was on the wrong webpage when I posted this.
Greetings! May I start off with saying thank you. You have a very impressive collection posted, and it must have taken quite a bit of time to sort out and list all of these cards. A lot of these cards and effects I have never seen before, and if there is one thing about magic that never loses it's luster for me is reading new cards and thinking of ways to see them play. With that out of the way...
I'm interested in too many things that you have, if I'm honest, but there are a few that are just above the interesting priority. They are as follows:
1x foil Bloodline Keeper
Flip - $8.00
2x Blind Obedience - $3.00
1x Council of the Absolute - $0.80
2x Figure of Destiny - $3.80(assuming 2x are from modern masters pax)
1x Kor Spiritdancer - $7.00
Total monetary value - $22.60
(The prices I came up with are the median range for each according to tcgplayer.cam)
If you would like to email me with any concerns or to hopefully at some point exchange shipping info. This is me:
Hey how about my counter offer? (all at high, assuming that the angel is at near mint/lightly played)
1x Restoration Angel @ 20.00 (high)
2x Wall of Denial @ 2.97 (each)
1x Blind Obedience @ 4.49
1x Necropolis Regent @ 4.11
1x Council of the Absolute @ 4.10
1x Realmwright @ 1.35
Like I said, i'm assuming that it's at near mint/lighty played. It'd be nice to know what condition it is. If the angel is in moderately played condition I'd put up less than what i'm giving you. All these following cards are Near Mint.
Run something to make your creature spells cost less? Like Stormscape Familiar , Sunscape Familiar , Helm of Awakening , Mistform Warchief , Warden of Evos Isle , Council of the Absolute , Grand Arbiter Augustin IV , Pearl Medallion , Sapphire Medallion , Cloud Key , Semblance Anvil , Urza's Incubator , Urza's Filter , Stone Calendar , or Planar Gate . Those should be most of them, in alphabetical, color and mana cost order. Quicksilver Amulet is also a good way to "pipe" mana-intensive creatures onto the battlefield early.
Hope this helps!

Just a few questions, trying to fill in some gaps on what I know if you don't mind.
1) How many times are you playing the shocks tapped?
1b) would it work with a few scry lands (curious in case I wan't to build it)
2) What type of cards are you bringing Council of the Absolute in against? - besides the control match with Jace and Elspeth
3) have any of the aggro decks thought to ignore the planeswalkers and just go for the kill?
Please link all cards in your question. There's a formatting guide at the bottom of the page.
Council of the Absolute
The ability means exactly what it says. It tells you to name a card other than a creature or land card, so you have to name a noncreature, nonland card.
Abilities are not cards.
