SynergyBuild on Creating a Stax Ban List

2 months ago

First, what do you mean be stax?

There are tons of types. Often, it is in reference to a few, but there are tons.

Land destruction/land hate is a common type, but it is massive in scale is style:

Ravages of War , Armageddon , Ruination , Winter Orb , Back to Basics , Impending Disaster , Wildfire , Myojin of Infinite Rage , Decree of Annihilation , Cataclysm , Jokulhaups , Tectonic Break , Obliterate , etc.

This bleeds into more blurry lines, like Boil , which isn't necessarily land hate, but is color hate, or Blood Moon / Contamination , which are considered stax too.

Tax effects are plentiful too, Trinisphere , Nether Void , Sphere of Resistance , etc. are often considered staxy, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Vryn Wingmare , Glowrider , Thorn of Amethyst etc. are taxing, but so are Pendrell Mists , Magus of the Tabernacle , The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale , Kataki, War's Wage , etc. count too.

Even color hate like High Seas can count in that department, etc.


Point is, I've barely scratched the surface of the basic stax cards, not to mention synergies like Brago, King Eternal with Rishadan Cutpurse , etc.

I don't think you can ban stax.

Who hurt you? Also, maybe consider The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale or Magus of the Tabernacle .

So I notice you're making stax in WU. Maybe Hokori, Dust Drinker , Magus of the Moat and Magus of the Tabernacle ? Also, since you're running Azorius, why not piss them off even more by adding in about 8 or so counter spells, like Render Silent , Cryptic Command (although this deck might be a bit mana starved for it) and other classics?

Mono white doesn't have many ways to draw cards. It's pretty standard for mono white to run more lands to compensate to ensure they can hit their big spells. I'd go with 36 or 37 lands. Weathered Wayfarer is great. Ancient Tomb is a must. Stuff like Mind Stone, Everflowing Chalice, etc. help. You want rocks that come in untapped and tap for mana with an upside at 2 CMC. If you're going to proxy, go with Mana Crypt as well. Scroll Rack is great, especially with Land Tax. Unexpectedly Absent is great.

Try to go up to 20 creatures. Cut your artifacts when necessary. Serra Ascendant, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Ethersworn Canonist, Magus of the Tabernacle, Hushwing Gryff, Eight-and-a-Half-Tails, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Grasp of Fate, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Kinjalli's Sunwing, Eidolon of Rhetoric, Aura of Silence, Phyrexian Revoker, Tocatli Honor Guard, Alms Collector, Spelltithe Enforcer, Lodestone Golem, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker, etc. You've got options.

Really cool deck! Have you considered Sunder to slow your opponents down even more?

Clock of Omens can also generate you extra mana and allows you to tap Winter Orb/Static Orb on your upkeep to keep your lands from staying tapped.

I see you don't run many creatures, so you could go for creature lock-down with cards like Magus of the Tabernacle, Pendrell Mists (passive boardwipe with Winter Orb) ,Dream Tides, Overburden, World Queller, Spelltithe Enforcer, Ward of Bones, Portcullis and Crystal Shard I think are worth considering.

I play a blue/white superfriends deck that prevents anyone from playing creatures so I feel like some of my cards may compliment your deck xD http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/grand-arbiter-and-friends/
