You need some Force of Will!

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll definitely work towards some of these, budget doesn't currently allow but I will look out for them in trades for the time being. I'll have to consider the consistency of Force of Will and Abjure given the high percentage of colourless cards in this deck but these suggestions are very much appreciated.

Hi cool deck, if your budget permits I would streamline your permission suite into the following:

Generally you want to keep your permission as low cmc as possible to be able to more effectively leave the least mana open to protect your board.

Welcome fellow Superfriends player, I strongly recommend swapping Pyramid of the Pantheon for Gilded Lotus. I have noticed the Pyramid tends to explode before it is useful, just costing you mana.

I have always found Inexorable Tide underwhelming and Rings of Brighthearth invaluable as it doubles activation effects.

Other glancing looks: Creatures are cool but you have the beginnings of a boardwipe package. I personally recommend increasing your wipes, Supreme Verdict Catastrophe Armageddon Merciless Eviction Obliterate and Decree of Annihilation to name a bare few.

Your interaction is slightly lacking, most of your effects are sorcery speed. If this is usable in you meta then disregard, mine requires things like Path to Exile Anguished Unmaking Cyclonic Rift Force of Will and the like.

I used to run 5c superfriends as well then cut it down to 4c with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice but and thinking of returning with the potential spoiler of Ramos, Dragon Engin and Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh

To end my book of a comment, My list A Spark Awakens in case you want to see anything I didn't want to list.

So. I'm guessing you don't know much about tournament magic, so if I explain something you do know, sorry.

Legacy is a very low to the ground format, with most spells in the format that see play costing 1-3. This is because of how efficient the various cards can be. Delver of Secrets  Flip is a 1 mana 3/2 flyer who applies pressure for just building a deck that has a high density of spells. Stoneforge Mystic lets you create an uncounterable 4/4 vigilance lifelinker for 2 mana, return it to hand, and replay it for 2 mana, while also thinning your deck by 1 card. Brainstorm, Force of Will, Wasteland and Swords to Plowshares are all staples of this format.

From a basic deck building standpoint, 22 lands, turn 4 fixing and no dual lands in a deck that wants to cast heavy mana cost cards (ie wanting to have UU on turn 2, 1BB or UBR on turn 3) is going to struggle to both find and play the land to cast cards on curve, and have the correct mana.

If you take this to a legacy tournament, you will get mullered. A lot of these cards are better off in commander, than a competitive format.

If you just want to play this in casual, that is fine, I've got some suggestions for that. If you want to play this is competitive, then it is unlikely, but I can suggest stuff.

Anything that doesn't play Daze, Ponder, and Force of Will in the same deck is already a step up imho.

Hey all, I basically need everything except for the deathrites, Jaces, swords to plowshares, and brainstorm. I still need 4x Force of Will (non alliance preferred), True-Name Nemesis, Daze, Thoughtseize (eventually wanting these to be invocations) and the Stoneforge Mystics. Hope we can work something out!

GlistenerAgent on What Does Staple Mean?

The staples of a format are just the cards that see play in a wide variety of strategies. For example, if you play in a Legacy tournament, you can reasonably expect some number of your opponents to be playing Deathrite Shaman, Force of Will, Swords to Plowshares, Delver of Secrets  Flip, etc. because those cards are staples of the format. You would likely not expect to see Pernicious Deed, though some decks do play it. Deed is a part of Legacy, but is not a staple. This heuristic (what you expect to play against in a tournament) is a solid determinant of what is and isn't a staple.
