Loxodon Gatekeeper Discussion

This is really cool! I don’t play azorius at all but this deck looks like a lot of fun. I’ve also never heard of the 8x8 rule. Where does that come from?
Have you experimented with cards that have similar abilities to ones you’re using like Imposing Sovereign , Blind Obedience and Frozen AEther ? Kismet and Loxodon Gatekeeper have higher CMCs but they cover all the bases as far as what enters tapped. I would probably run one of them over Court Street Denizen since you’re only running about 13 white creatures. Ah wait... unless you have enough stuff that bounces creatures back then i guess my suggestion is a moot point.
Grand Arbiter Augustin IV seems like a shoe-in to help Lavinia hold down your opponents. But may not work for you if you’re looking to have creatures with ETBs.
I only really noticed you have Sift for card draw. What else do you have? Cause I must have missed some.
Anyway, Azorious is not my specialty but I hope I sort of helped. Good luck! +1

Another option for ramp which I'm sure you are well aware of is Smothering Tithe .

@ AdNauseam12 Thank you so much for your comment!!!
Yeah the more I look at Urza, Lord High Artificer the less I am impressed by him. We'll see what time does for him. I'll probably delete this deck list soon as I plan on using the cards I've ordered for this deck to help build Chain Veil Teferi. I think I will enjoy Teferi a lot more...
The deck list I based this one on is Urza Paradox Scepter so a few of the "interesting" choices are thanks to that list and I was planning on testing them myself.
You sound like you have a very fast meta. Your meta needs more stax players. They would probably do well.
The only fringe situation for not running fetches would be if you have Back to Basics and an opponent plays Kismet , Loxodon Gatekeeper , Orb of Dreams , or Thalia, Heretic Cathar . But the upside of deck shuffle and fetching after Brainstorm or Sensei's Divining Top makes them worth it. The real reason is that all my fetches are in Simic Moonfolk Landfall and that deck being a lands matter deck is very hungry to run the fetches.
Thank you for the complement on my alters. All of them (other then Narset, Parter of Veils official alternative Japaneses art) are hand painted on real copies of the cards (I do have unaltered copies of all the cards in this list to run in tournaments). Have you seen Klug Alters. His stuff is amazing and he is my card altering idol.

Tap down effects can help give you an edge to get your Infect creatures in. Blind Obedience , Kismet , and Loxodon Gatekeeper are a few to consider. Behind the Scenes and Mirari's Wake can also be helpful. I would also recommend two of my favorite pump spells Berserk and Hatred to really close out a game. Cards like Guardian Project , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Sylvan Library , and Necropotence are all major card draw engines.

There are creature-based variations of these as well:

Hidy Ho neighbor,
Really like what the deck has going on, the hatebear theme is well established, and the voltron is still prominent. Love the addition of Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle , and loving the pre release hebrew promo of Glory . But I see some things that may be better.
I third Tithe Taker , the ability is really nice to have one instance of.
Rant aside, really love what you've done, I think this deck is stronger than its counterpart in many ways, and I believe it's well on its way to being optimised.
