Lavinia of the Tenth Discussion

Hey, flashing out Ephara, God of the Polis Ephara, God of the Polis could be super nice card draw. With enough cheap creatures maybe token making you can draw a lot of cards. Another one to consider Lavinia of the Tenth . Then I find Search for Azcanta Flip strong card and flashable. As for interruption of your opponent's plans Narset, Parter of Veils flash this when your opponent is about to draw a million cards, feels super good.
I could also see Teyo, the Shieldmage and The Wanderer beeing really strong in this kind of deck. Usually, planeswalker don't really feel good to flash, since you cant activate their abilities, but with these 2 you can really abuse their passives.

Thanks, for the deck, got some nice ideas from this.

I'm liking the feel of the deck so far.
It's hard for me to picture how the deck will play because there are so many possible interactions. By the looks of it, the deck falls most under the archetype of Tempo although there are definite flavors of Tokens and Control. As such, I think my favorite card you have in the deck is Reflector Mage , and I think running 4 of them would be pretty good.
I'm not sure how I feel about your top end. I'm not saying I dislike it, I just have a question mark on it... Lavinia of the Tenth would be great against an Aggro deck, but not as good against Stompy. I do like the idea of cheating out Akromas, though.
I'm wondering if Thraben Inspector is worth its slot if this deck will be used for 1v1. Something with more front end value, i.e. Wall of Omens or even just a scry like from Wall of Runes might set you up better in the early game--since I'm picturing you wanting to use all your mana most turns to cast flicker spells/creatures instead of paying the 2 to cash in clues. I may be off on this forecast though, and that's okay. I'm just trying to share some thoughts.

All spells can be countered.
If a nonland permanent attacks, blocks, or if one of its activated abilities is activated, it becomes detained.

Is your meta aggro? Go Oloro, Ageless Ascetic
Is your meta creature-based? Consider Merieke Ri Berit + untap effects. More combo-y but can easily be done creatureless as you just get theirs. Lavinia of the Tenth can also defend against large creature decks.
Anyway, that's my 2 cents. I have literally 0% of these decks IRL so that's just my best guess. Have fun!

For me personally, my Lavinia of the Tenth deck severely controls and slows down the game. It’s a flicker detention, to combo off later in the game. Best part is you only have to worry about larger things, which aren’t usually played a lot compared to CMC <4.
If you want board control, I think she is the best option you have available.

I was wrong about Lavinia of the Tenth ... I thought detain was an exile effect, its not. Tokens detained will not leave the battlefield, just be unable to attack or block. She's still excellent to blink to lock down all your opponents nonland permanents includes creatures that are 0-4 CMC with Brago and Lavinia since detain happens until your next turn.

Hey, nice budget Brago deck, lots of interesting interactions.
Mana efficient budget cards to consider adding:
- Command Tower : one of the best lands for multicolored Commander decks.
- Port Town : better than many common Azorius dual lands, works well with lots of basic lands.
- Opal Palace
- Mystic Remora : one drop, one of the best sources of repeatable no mana cost draw in multiplayer Commander. Blink it to reset it's upkeep cost.
- Brainstorm : one drop instant, draw three.
- Faerie Seer : one drop flying, scry 2.
- Watcher for Tomorrow : two drop, hideaway is powerful with blink.
- Lavinia of the Tenth : five drop, wipes all tokens since tokens are CMC 0 and when one is detained it is exiled and it doesn't come back. Detain is powerful in multiplayer Commander since it it affects all opponents.
- Wall of Omens : two drop, draw.
- Detention Sphere : three drop, wipes all tokens of the same kind since when tokens are exiled they don't come back.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Gateway Plaza
- 2x Plains
- Homarid Explorer: this type of opponent mill can be dangerous in multiplayer Commander because the graveyard is a major resource for many decks.
- Senate Griffin
- Turn to Mist
- Armillary Sphere
- Renegade Map
- Chromatic Armor
- Wings of Aesthir
- On Serra's Wings
I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.
