Grand Arbiter Augustin IV Discussion

Enral on Persistent Petitioners Mill Deck

3 weeks ago

I've always thought that Damia, Sage of Stone could be a pretty good commander for Persistent Petitioners . You can play Bloodbond March which is an all-star for cards like this. Dumping your entire hand of petitioners and refueling back for more sounds like a dope strategy. I do think that Grand Arbiter Augustin IV who is on your list lends to a pretty brutal mill/stax list. Since he is an adviser himself, you could include various azorius advisers in addition to the petitioners. Good luck!

Not sure what colors to run here...

I could do Dimir, and run a Oona, Queen of the Fae with Conspiracy naming Persistent Petitioners . I'd have access to things like Glimpse the Unthinkable and Tutors.

Or I could do a Azorius build with Grand Arbiter Augustin IV and High Alert to be a control build with lots of counter magic and removal.

OR I could go Bant and incorporate my Azorius deck idea with some green ramp and Assault Formation ... maybe even slip in some defenders...

I dunno man there are so many good idea's and just don't know which one to go towards...

No matter what build I go with I don't think that this deck is going to be cEDH but it can be fully optimized so keep that in mind.

Also I'd like to form a group of active EDH users to help each other out on each others decks and follow each other, anyone interested?

SynergyBuild there are only 2 cards ( Tithe Taker and Grand Arbiter Augustin IV ) that applies to all the other taxes are triggers off of cast. It is true they are anti-synergistic, It'll just matter when you see them, making the decisions will depend on the situation.

SuperMinty6 I generally leave the lands open as someone can make it as competitive or casual a mana base depending on your own meta (which will also either greatly increase the price or not).

For cheap counterspells that aren't listed in your maybe board you can use Dispel , Rebuff the Wicked , Turn Aside , Unsubstantiate , Spell Pierce . Negate , Arcane Denial , Countersquall , and Imp's Mischief .

For Esper colors, there isn't much you can do for fast ramp aside from relying on faster lower costed mana rocks to makes it go faster. The other alternative route to this is going for a cost reducer route like using cards like Helm of Awakening , Jhoira's Familiar , Baral, Chief of Compliance , Cloud Key , Etherium Sculptor , Foundry Inspector , Grand Arbiter Augustin IV , and The Immortal Sun .

Hope that helps!

Okay, so what if I have a Grand Arbiter Augustin IV on the board, and cast a Cancel for 2 blue mana? Does it work?

(My opponent still has the Chalice with 2).

Hey guys, so I just drafted up a Grand Arbiter Augustin IV Combo Control deck for my semi-competitive meta. I think it's pretty decent, but keep in mind it's not for a full fledged cEDH meta. I'm also testing Emergency Powers! Let me know what you guys think, I'd appreciate any and all feedback. Thanks!

If I use Glamerdye to change the word "white" in the text of Grand Arbiter Augustin IV to "blue", GAAIV now has two instances of "Blue spells you cast cost less to play." Do my blue spells cost less, or is the ability redundant?
