Lavinia, Azorius Renegade Discussion

Flooremoji on Silent Scepter

Reminds me of thoose Possibility Storm lock decks :)

Stick that with Lavinia, Azorius Renegade or Teferi, Time Raveler and you have the same effect.

I think that Imprinting a bolt is fine (see Punishing Fire), and most creature decks will struggle to deal with it.

Firstly, thank you for your interest in our deck, we appreciate your adoration for our Bible!

Secondly, some of your suggestions are pretty viable in our build. Starting with: The STAX pieces: Static Orb, Winter Orb and Tangle Wire.

Here we see Winter Orb as the most playable, as we use our creatures for mana equal to or more than that of our lands, and the CMC is very low for the effect.

Tangle Wire looks good in the second most viable position, as it is ephemeral yet effective.

Static Orb would be the least viable, as we need something such as Derevi or Brago out directly to really get value from it, and there's no guarantee they'll come out and stay out.

Drannith Magistrate will be replacing Lavinia, Azorius Renegade as the value he brings overthrows the value of Lavinia, even in her most powerful positions.

Prime Speaker Vannifar seems a good addition, but Birthing Pod can be put down without colour requirements, with the same cost, and activate on the same turn for 4 life. If we find a need for more Birthing effects, such as putting in the Food Chain combos, Vannifar will be considered.

RiotRunner789 on Good Commanders for Superfriends

Arcades, the Strategist: Provides solid card draw with literal walls to protect your walkers (many of which can fly). I've seen some disgusting Superfriends builds with this guy specially buing in green to ramp to Karn Liberated and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon.

Lavinia, Azorius Renegade: Good stax commander. Slow down the board to a crawl and just get the emblem for every azorious planeswalker out there. I have a Lavinia stax deck with a Superfirends sub-theme (8 walkers) and it is not challenging to get their emblems.

Bonus, being in azorious colors for both commanders gives the best superfriends cards of them all with Oath of Teferi. Arcades just gets better with Doubling Season.

Hey man! I have some suggestions. Feel free to ignore any/all of them as you see fit:

  1. I think you should include Sensei's Divining Top. It's really good at topdeck manipulation, and activating it in response to Yennett's trigger can help you find the spell you want to cast for free.

  2. Brainstorm is underplayed in EDH, so I'm glad to see it in your list. I think you need more shuffle effects though before it becomes really busted. Generally people do this by including fetches and duals like Flooded Strand, but those can be very pricey for EDH. I think slow fetches like Bad River, Flood Plain and Rocky Tar Pit are also good, and merit consideration. Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse are also good options as cheaper versions of Prismatic Vista.

  3. Ponder and Preordain are the other cantrips usually included in blue lists, and I highly recommend them for your list, too. Filtering your draws can let you run fewer lands, which in turn increases your hits with Yennett.

  4. As mentioned in (3), I think 42 lands is too many. In general, I try to play 33-34 at most outside mono-green land-drop decks. Running artifact ramp instead of the extra few lands makes it so that you can ramp up by more than one mana each turn. That said, I strongly dislike 3-drop rocks in EDH; it's not that they're bad, it's that 2-mana drops are available and way better. The best ones are Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, Mox Opal, Mana Vault etc. but like the fetches, these tend to be a lot of money. If you aren't allowed to use proxies (and aren't loaded af), try things like Arcane Signet, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Hierarchy, Fellwar Stone, Everflowing Chalice, Mind Stone, Dimir Signet, Azorius Signet, Orzhov Signet... You can't cast these off Yennett triggers, but you can't cast the lands they'd be replacing either. Additionally, you don't really want to be hitting rocks off the triggers, but more things like In Garruk's Wake or Behold the Beyond.

  5. Countering combo decks generally depends on your meta, but cheap counters are a good way to push the deck harder. Mental Misstep is surprisingly good (in my experience), since it can counter Sol Ring, Silence, Demonic Consultation etc. Force of Will and Force of Negation are also expensive, but the best in the business. Spell Snare is good (it counters Flash and a bunch of other combo nonsense; Spell Pierce, Swan Song, Drown in the Loch and Narset's Reversal are also good.

  6. If you're looking for more permanent-based disruption, you're in the right colors. Narset, Parter of Veils is good, as is Counterbalance (especially with Sensei's Divining Top). Lavinia, Azorius Renegade is good (she nails opposing Force of Wills and ramp). So are things like Containment Priest, Aven Mindcensor, Ashiok, Dream Render... Hatebears are great.

  7. Mystic Remora is a good way to draw cards and disincentivize storm players.

Right. That's all I got. I hope it helps!

Sadly, you need to get to 6 power for Sisay, since Sisay, Weatherlight Captain says 'costs less than' rather than 'equal to or less than.'

No worries, the use of Jegantha as a companion is it lets you get Sisay to 4 power on it's own, which allows the whole combo to occur with no extra pieces. Yes 11 mana is a ton, but 3-3-5 isn't too bad, when it's a 5 color, 0 card combo, you can work with anything in deck. Radha while not bad for the deck, will often be worse than other ramp pieces like Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, or just normal ramp.

The actual legends in more competitive Sisay lists (according to lists I've seen) are Lavinia, Azorius Renegade, Anafenza, the Foremost, Gaddock Teeg, Tymna the Weaver, Thrasios, Triton Hero, Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, Teferi, Time Raveler, Oko, Thief of Crowns, Kethis, the Hidden Hand, Dack Fayden, Aminatou, the Fateshifter, The Chain Veil, Umezawa's Jitte, Derevi, Empyrial Tactician/Najeela, the Blade-Blossom (and Samut, Voice of Dissent optionally for this combo).

Optionally (on EDHREC) Helm of the Host, Hammer of Nazahn, Reki, the History of Kamigawa, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Domri, Anarch of Bolas, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain, Saffi Eriksdotter, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Captain Sisay, Brago, King Eternal, Kunoros, Hound of Athreos, Ashiok, Dream Render/Narset, Parter of Veils/Teferi, Master of Time/Linvala, Keeper of Silence (non-Jegantha variations)

Sadly, while Radha seems okay? Tutoring it is really bad, since you could fetch value pieces like Wrenn and Six, or better ramp like Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, and I doubt you need an extra green if you can cast Sisay and activate her, and she also already needs to have a 1 color legend out. If you are looking to use Radha for pumping Sisay, run more of the optional legends. Idk, I could be wrong but I don't see it being popular, I hope you have the best of luck with it, it seems pretty fun for the deck on terms of a flavor include!

I like the idea of a prison-style Jeskai curse, here's mine, based on Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, Lavinia, Azorius Renegade, Chancellor of the Annex, and Gaddock Teeg, among others.

Ojutai's Curse

Legendary Enchantment - Aura Curse

Enchant Player

Enchanted player can't cast creature spells with converted mana cost greater than 3.

Whenever enchanted player casts a spell, counter it unless that player pays .

Whenever the enchanted player casts a spell with a converted mana cost greater than the number of lands they control, Ojutai's Curse deals 5 damage to them.


Temur () is my least favorite wedge/shard. I like stax, aristocrats, and resource-denial oriented control (Lantern Control and 8-rack styles more than more traditional control).

I'd like a Temur commander you think I'd like, or at least one you'd like, if you don't feel like speculating. I just require it does something Temur doesn't have a commander for. Here are the existing Temur commanders and my sense of their themes:

Illuna, Apex of Wishes, which either incentivizes running only one or two nonland permanents or top-deck manipulation and mutate/bounce effects.

Intet, the Dreamer is largely about top-deck manipulation

Kalamax, the Stormsire is about instants and copying effects.

Maelstrom Wanderer is a combo-build using its cascade trigger.

Omnath, Locus of the Roil is Elemental Tribal with Landfall.

Riku of Two Reflections is interesting in that it works both with nontoken creatures and nonpermanent spells. Lutri, the Spellchaser would be ideal, were it not banned, lol, but Wort, the Raidmother, Dualcaster Mage, and Naru Meha, Master Wizard are definitely core to the spirit of its function.

Surak Dragonclaw. is about stompy creatures and maybe Trample-tribal

Xyris, the Writhing Storm is about making opponents draw card Windfall and Wheel of Fortune effects

Yasova Dragonclaw is a voltron-style commander

Animar, Soul of Elements is for artifact creature and morphs.

Rain of Knowledge

Instant

Draw X cards, where X is 1 plus the number of charge counters on it.

Return a land to your hand: Put two charge counters on Rain of Knowledge. You may choose a new target for it. Any player may play this ability but only if Rain of Knowledge is on the stack.


So, yesterday, I posed this challenge to no reply, so I'll repost it.

Can I get a hatebear not in white, not like Gaddock Teeg or Lavinia, Azorius Renegade, but no white, like

Also not like a Magus of Stasis-type deal or Magus of the Moon, but like Yixlid Jailer, Melira, Sylvok Outcast, Vexing Shusher (kinda?), Stigma Lasher, Eidolon of the Great Revel, Ash Zealot, Tunnel Ignus, Harsh Mentor, and Immolation Shaman.

Mzuzi the Unlucky

Legendary Planeswalker - Mzuzi

Spells your opponents cast that target you or permanents or spells you control cost less to cast.

+2: Each opponent creates a 3/3 green Beast creature token. During each opponent's next turn, creatures that player controls attack Mzuzi the Unlucky if able.

+2: Target opponent gains control of Mzuzi the Unlucky.

-9: You get an emblem with "If you have cards in your graveyard, you can't lose the game." and "As long as you have 0 or less life, whenever you lose life, for each 1 life you lost, exile a permanent you control or a card from your hand or graveyard."

3


The static is based on Accursed Witch  Flip, the first +2 is based on Gideon Jura/goad as a mechanic, and other +2 is based on Harmless Offering as well as Gilded Drake-type effects. The ultimate is a mix of Worship, Phyrexian Unlife, and Lich's Mastery.

I couldn't really think of a green aspect, so I just gave everyone some beasts to attack Mzuzi with.
