No problem. I had been wondering if Bolas's Citadel was going to make it to cEDH. Your incite on the card is very helpful. I'm glad to hear Blast Zone is working out for you. I have been considering running it in my Arcum Dagsson cEDH deck. Stony Silence , Null Rod , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , and Stranglehold have all given me issues and like mono black, mono blue has problems with artifact and enchantment removal.

ChibiNature Thoughts on Thalia's Lancers ?

Can tutor for Zada, Hedron Grinder , Paradox Engine , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , and Inventors' Fair (Can't believe Mox Diamond is not a Legendary).

And you can Cloudshift , Otherworldly Journey the Lancers for repeat value.

stensiagamekeeper--wow. Best deck comments ever!

One, math is hard. Agreed. I've run 8 dorks before and it feels ALL IN on the combo. No plan B. I'll stick to 6 for now, but run 4 Birds of Paradise and 2 Noble Hierarch s (the original list was 2 Birds and 4 Nobles which felt wrong for color fixing).

Two, agreed. I'll probably run Nullhide Ferox the first night, but I think Obstinate Baloth is where it is at. 2 less fling damage for 4 maindeck life gain seems correct.

Three, the deck originally called for a maindeck Cavern of Souls but I agree it doesn't need it. I will keep an eye on the mana and consider adjusting my dork split. I hadn't thought of the Raging Ravine angle. I'll add it to the Maybeboard.

Four, ah! It didn't occur to me Linvala, Keeper of Silence was for that match up. I suppose that works for Whir Prison, too. Thanks!

The creator of the deck has top 8'ed with and without Ghalta, Primal Hunger . I'll keep it on my radar. Surrak, the Hunt Caller is faster than he looks because if you evolve Strangleroot Geist his undying trigger gives you 8 power and haste. I'm staying away from enchantments, planeswalkers, and 5 drops for now because they don't combo well with Strangleroot Geist plus Eldritch Evolution . Otherwise the boar or some of the new god-eternals would be sweet!

Thanks for your help and let me know if you think of anything else, or if you have any Modern lists you need a second set of eyes on!

There are a couple cards that completely stop opponents from using creature-based activated abilities: Cursed Totem , Damping Matrix , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , and Voidstone Gargoyle

Phyrexian Revoker and Sorcerous Spyglass allow you to stop Mairsil without targeting it, so it bypasses flicker mechanics.

Suppression Field taxes the activated abilities, making them harder to use.

Trickbind is another counter that has the added benefit of Split Second, and could be worth including.

You could use removal with split second to kill Mairsil without it being able to flicker in response: Molten Disaster , Sudden Death , Take Possession , Wipe Away .

Sudden Spoiling neuters Mairsil for the turn.

Sorry if any of these are in the deck. I'm admittedly just copying and pasting a post I did for another Lavinia list.

Fatespinner (this card is amazing), Thorn of Amethyst , Sphere of Resistance , Defense Grid , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , Torpor Orb , Kataki, War's Wage , Tocatli Honor Guard , Propaganda , Ghostly Prison , Rite of Replication , Winter Orb , Rising Waters , Stasis , and Static Orb are all options as you tweak this for your meta.
