Lazav, the Multifarious

Legendary Creature — Shapeshifter

When Lazav, the Multifarious enters the battlefield, surveil 1. (Look at the top card of your library. You may put it into your graveyard.)

: Lazav, the Multifarious becomes a copy of target creature card in your graveyard with converted mana cost X, except its name is Lazav, the Multifarious, it's legendary in addition to its other types, and it has this ability.

Lazav, the Multifarious Discussion

CaptainGalvanic on Multifarious Infinite Combos

Does anyone have a good idea for generating +1 counters on Lazav, the Multifarious? I am trying to make a Sage of Hours infinite turns combo, but the most efficient one I have is to copy Szadek, Lord of Secrets to get 6 counters, and it still costs 9 mana per turn.

I feel like Lazav, the Multifarious slots right in as a one or two of and becomes an additioanl copy of any of your creatures, with a surviel bonus. Also consider Mausoleum Secrets, which functionally becomes an additional copy of any card with black in it in your deck. Am thinking you could cut a Vraska or two and a branchwalker to fit them in

I'm gonna mess around with this build in Arena... once I get a few more of the cards.

How important would you think Jadelight Ranger is to this deck.

ForsakenxEDHx I wasn't trying to sound rude lol. You didn't mention anything regarding tier placement in your post, so it looked as if you were just seeking advice on your deck which admittedly you were, and I also can't help but feel as if your follow-up post is being sarcastic and condescending too...

Regardless, Lazav, the Multifarious is appropriately placed in high-power for a combo deck. I have a list of my own that uses Necrotic Ooze combos and it's capable of winning on turn 3, Lazav is just at the helm for redundancy to the combo. I believe Lazav plays very similarly to Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, but it isn't quite as consistent or fleshed out simply because the lack of green cuts out the Hermit Druid and Protean Hulk combos and puts more weight on Nooze which means in case of removal we have to use secondary win-cons with cards like Phage the Untouchable and Vector Asp + Phyrexian Dreadnought which simply isn't nearly as ideal as the combos green has to offer. You're list doesn't look bad, but I'm afraid it's not comparable to the other decks in the competitive or maximum-power categories due to certain factors such as budgetary restrictions, consistency, and some questionable suboptimal choices.

Hey there! So I think the deck looks awesome esp. with Nightveil Predator (It killed me so much in limited XD). I would highly suggest Lazav, the Multifarious if you ever consider putting more blue in. Good luck!

Daggerfella on Bouncing Etrata

Surprised not to see Lazav, the Multifarious in here. as you can use it to clone her when shes in the grave yard. thus extending the probability of hitting ur opponent thrice. this would be good if they destroy it before its bounced to your hand.

Plus you could use Helm of the Host to clone the copy or clone her. ya probably could run a helm of the host and 2 of Lazav instead of the Vraskas contempt. the CMC is high on that card and for now you could use other kill spells that are in black that cost less.

also with a mana curve this low you could run a gilded lotus and 23 land instead of 24 land.

I'm trying my hand at a Grixis deck. I've never really used Red or Blue so this is pretty new. I do know I want to base it around Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip. So probably a possible mill style deck.

I play with 3 other people and use my lifegain deck Game of Life Counters and they've learned to team up and hit me first before I can get it going so I lose first.

For the deck I was thinking something like 2 Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip, some Psychic Corrosion, an Omnispell Adept to help cast bigger spells, maybe a couple of Millstones ? I was gonna throw in a Murmuring Mystic for token fodder. And trying to get some Drowned Secrets.

How else should I approach this, or am I looking at this all wrong?

I also have an Etrata, the Silencer and Lazav, the Multifarious but I cant see them fitting.

Thanks for any help.

Kogarashi on Lazav, the Multifarious commander and ...

Additionally, while Lazav, the Multifarious retains its Legendary status when it copies, the Dimir Doppelganger ability doesn't specifically state that, and thus your commander will be a non-legendary copy of Black Cat, meaning Mirror Image won't invoke the "legend rule" when it enters as a copy of your Black Cat commander.

After the first round of copying, your commander will be a 0/2 blue and black Legendary Shapeshifter creature named "Lazav, the Multifarious" with the Dimir Doppelganger's copy ability and Lazav, the Multifarious's ability.

After the second round of copying, your commander will be a 1/1 black non-Legendary Zombie Cat creature named "Black Cat" with the abilities of the Black Cat and Dimir Doppelganger but not Lazav's abilities.

In both cases, it will still retain its "commanderness," and still have a color identity of blue and black because that is a property of the card and not its current state as a permanent.

multimedia on Grixis Control

6 days ago

Hey, good ideas here I like Grixis as pure tapout control rather than draw go or a combination of the two.

You're combining the two different control strategies; instead consider focusing on one of them and cutting the other? I think if you're dedicated to main deck Thief of Sanity then consider 4x Thief. It's the new Glint-Sleeve Siphoner as far as impact; it must be answered or it will take over the game. You're dedicated to tapping out because if Thief survives then you'll want to use your mana each turn to play the card you steal. I suggest going all out tapout control with main deck 4x Thought Erasure and 3-4x Notion Rain. These are excellent cards to help smooth your draws. Consider cutting the counterspells? Instead just sideboard Negate and Disdainful Stroke?

The curve of turn two Erasure, turn three Thief or Rain, turn four Bolas or Contempt or Soot, turn five Whisperer is very good. Consider main deck Erasure to help to protect Thief? Turn two Erasure take your opponent's removal for Thief and then turn three Thief helps to clear the way for Thief. Consider Lazav, the Multifarious? Lazav can be additional copies of Thief or Whisperer because Thief is going to die having access to Thief from your graveyard is good.

Consider this creature base:

  • 4x Thief
  • 2x Lazav
  • 3-4x Bolas
  • 3x Whisperer

Consider this other spells base:

  • 4x Erasure
  • 3-4x Rain
  • 4x Contempt
  • 3x Coil
  • 2x Cast Down
  • 2x Soot (more in the sideboard)
  • 2x Search
  • 1x Reborn (more in the sideboard)
  • 1x Ral
  • 1x Karn
  • 1x Angrath

Good luck with your deck.
