Zenzu, Nemesis of Magic

Legendary Creature - Merfolk Wizard

Whenever another creature you control enters the battlefield choose a player. That creature has protection from the chosen player as long as you control Zensu, Nemesis of Magic.

3/3

Legendary version of True-Name Nemesis

Create a Magus of _ for a noncreature spell that doesn't have a magus. For example Magus of the Moon is the creature form of Blood Moon and Magus of the Tabernacle is the creature form of The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale

Since your a low creature count you might consider Magus of the Tabernacle for some added salt. Although it might be counter productive with your high artifact count Kataki, War's Wage can be pretty viscous.

Some kind of Ghostly Prison War Tax or Magus of the Tabernacle would help offset the low creature count and keep a more or less even playing field with your opponents with various forms of mana deprivation. God-Pharaoh's Statue and Feroz's Ban are other cards I thought of after seeing the low creature count and Grand Arbiter Augustin IV . I'm not a great deck builder, but I find mana deprivation to be even more effective than removal at controlling the pace. Looks like a strong deck in general, I really like the spell slinger feel this deck has.

SynergyBuild on Creating a Stax Ban List

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.
