Ethersworn Canonist Discussion

In a lot of ways sometimes Rule of Law is better as it is an enchantment, in your deck however it is important to get the Ethersworn Canonist's as game two your opponent will likely side out creature hate and side in enchantment hate, so it should be good enough if you don't get the Canonist's but it forces your opponent to be aware of what hate to have.

Good luck Friday!

First off, congrats on the showing! A game win against storm is a win for prison in my books especially without a Ethersworn Canonist effect. As for the third Supreme Verdict I would say yes if it wasn't for the seemingly abundance of storm in your meta. I would definitely play a third in the side, and if there is less storm than it looks play it main as a third Verdict means that every game you can expect to see it as an out.

U/W Can definitely work on its own and if you did, Glacial Fortress would be a great addition to the mana base.

I personally don't think that the Ethersworn Canonists are such a good inclusion. Since you are not running that many artifacts, this will often slow you down, and there is no point in them if you don't have any other artifacts in your hand because it will keep you from playing more cards. Also if you rely on spells such as Lightning Bolt and maybe even Lightning Helix to do major damage, you could perhaps run 1-2 copies of Soulfire Grand Master??

I really like the lock that this deck puts on its opponents, however I think it is too slow for this shell. I would think putting it into a control shell would make it a little more interactive and resilient. Also, other cards that can fit in the spot of Ethersworn Canonist are Curse of Exhaustion and Rule of Law, however both of them cost more.

I dont think this deck will function anything like you intend

Oloro is banned in 1v1 commander, and your opponents will do the opposite of ignoring you with him in the command zone, in fact most oloro control games i've played you are almost always the archenemy, oloro is NOT a deck to ignore and if you want people to ignore you you should consider a commander that isnt banned and infamous, such as a group hug one like Zedruu the Greathearted

Between playing oloro and controlling everyones board, being ignored is the last thing on opponents mind, so you should ve playing as an archenemy rather than an invisible player, oloro is one of the farthest commanders from invisible lol :/

That said, this looks nearly identical to my oloro stax listExcept that your lack of creatures is disturbing, i understand its not a creature heavy deck but nevertheless things like Dark Confidant, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip Snapcaster Mage, Ethersworn Canonist, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Reflector Mage Containment Priest and Aven Mindcensor contribute to the game plan via control, card draw and recursion while providing you with chump blockers to protect against any creatures that survive board wipes

Ethersworn Canonist would be a sideboard card for matchups like storm I would run 2-3 depending on how often you face those types of decks.
