If an opponent who controls at least as many lands as you do would put a land into play, that player instead puts that land into play then sacrifices a land.
Land Equilibrium Discussion
1 week ago
I wouldn't run it personally since I'm not on the land denial game plan. Also, in my experience, I tend to have a larger number of lands. That is a completely fair game plan for Lavinia. Land Equilibrium , Stasis , Mana Breach , Back to Basics , and over Overburden are all good options with Rising Waters as an mediocre backup.

If you aren't running land destruction, what about Land Equilibrium to keep those pesky players green players in check? They are probably the least effected color by lavinia. +1

Phenomenal deck! I have almost all the cards and have been wondering how to build Noyan Dar for a long time.

@TheNocholas It's possible to build Lavinia on a budget but you likely wouldn't be able to hang at cEDH tables which is where she is best. I've encountered Lavinia decks in the wild at LGS's and sitting at a table with three normal EDH decks she just isn't that good. Plus, good luck ever getting Omen Machine or Knowledge Pool on board. People will be holding counters for them.

Thanks for the tip TheNocholas. I do agree that Emeria, The Sky Ruin will be hard to pull off, but with how the deck is structured at the moment I feel that I need some graveyard recursion in the case a win-con like Laboratory Maniac or Sun Titan gets counter. To counteract the large number of plains needed I did try and add a fair amount of land tutoring via Solemn Simulacrum , Thaumatic Compass Flip, Burnished Hart , and Land Tax . If have any ideas on what I could replace it with I would be happy to hear them.
As for your second question, I do believe a budget version is possible. The first things to replace would probably be Mana Crypt and Mana Vault , which can be about $150 by themselves, with some cheaper mana rocks, or maybe a Treasure Map Flip, for those treasure tokens and extra card draw. Another card to go would be the Land Equilibrium . Other than that, I believe developing a cheaper land and getting rid of Teferi, Hero of Dominaria and Elspeth, Knight-Errant will also help to achieve your goal price as they are not necessary, just nice to have as teferi will help you leave mana for counter spells and Elspeth's -8 gives your lands indestructible so they do not blow up.

thom-le I will go take a look at your deck and let you know how the button works.
I'm so glad to hear that you have tested my deck out. I think it runs very well and I appreciate the suggestions to enhance some of the cards already in the deck. I think AEtherize and Flood of Recollection are great cards and I have thought about adding them in the past. I'm to that point where it is hard to cut cards. But I will say that the one card I was thinking about cutting was Land Equilibrium. Not that it doesn't help but its tough to spend turn 4 casting that card. It really does "get" the ramp decks which is great but it can also be a card that just does nothing.
Settle the Wreckage is also great, but I hate ramping my opponents. Having Land Equilibrium out would be necessary for me to want to cast that. I think there is enough bounce in the deck that it isn't necessary but that might just be my meta. It is still a great card and would make sense to play over other cards if you own it.
Balance effects draws so much hate in my area that I stay away from those cards but they do work with this deck seeing as how you are usually not ramping at all.

You're welcome. At the moment I'm also trying to work on this button, would you be so kind and check, if my upvote-button in the description section of my Saheeli's Ironworks (KCI) does work?
But I'm not only here for your coding, I've also tested your deck. I think it does work well in a multiplayer-game. You're never the main threat on the board (for your opponents) until you get in the position of dealing high damage. I'd recommend Settle the Wreckage , it works well with your Land Equilibrium , maybe Magus of the Balance or an early Restore Balance . Shimmer would definitely create some hate against you, but could be useful. Standstill is very effective for control decks, because in normal case you'll get some card draw for cheap and also hinder some opponents in their board development. In the Maybeboard put something in against Graveyard-decks like Remorseful Cleric , but this depends on your play group.

If you are going for a standard Stax route uyou can use a Teferi, Temporal Archmage and use it in conjunction with Stasis. Another way since your winning with Approach is also to use a Flash + Academy Rector to go into Omniscience/Enter the Infinite.
Back up condition can also be with Nexus of Fate once you get there. Some additional stax pieces that can help would be Aven Mindcensor, Land Equilibrium, Mystic Remora, Grafdigger's Cage, Mana Web, and Winter Orb.
I would also recommend more mana rocks to have an earlier Arbiter on the battlefield. Hope that helps!
