Nether Void Discussion

Grand Arbiter Augustin IV is a solid generic hater, and Chalice of the Void works well too. Will you run stuff like Nevermore or Pithing Needle? There are also a lot of cards that give upkeep costs to things like Kataki, War's Wage or Breath of Dreams.

If you add black, you get access to stuff like Nether Void, Gloom and Blood Funnel. In fact, Mishra, Artificer Prodigy makes a great combo with these cards (your Sol Ring gets countered, then you search your graveyard for a card named Sol Ring and put it into play).

Nether Void is just insane.

Carpet of Flowers is a must-have in any stax deck where blue decks are going to be in your play group. Guttural Response, Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast also things I'd recommend if blue decks are prevalent.

Minister of Pain is a surprisingly powerful card, and combos with Living Plane to practically shut down a game outright.

I'm also noticing a distinct lack of discard effects. One of the best ones in stax is Bottomless Pit.

Oh, and Contamination is fun, but you're very light on creatures so it might not be all that worth it in this particular list. Speaking of creatures, no Elves of Deep Shadow or Dark Confidant?

+1 for Old School,

No Hymn to Tourach/Timetwister?

Also, I am totally making stax in this format with Nether Void, Invoke Prejudice, In the Eye of Chaos, Chains of Mephistopheles, The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, Energy Flux, and Land Equilibrium... wait that just sounds like my current deck... wait Blood Moon was printed in The Dark, sweet!

I like cdkime's suggested wording here. The infinite free mana one works, but as pointed out does some unintended things. And you need the clause that prohibits cost modification because the way the game determines cost of spells is blind to this sort of interaction.

That is to say, when the game asks "how much will this spell cost?" as part of casting the spell it doesn't see cost increases as something separate you pay, it's all rolled into what you need to pay to cast the spell. The key words here are "cost more/less to cast," which is distinct from something like Nether Void which does not increase how much it costs to cast the spell, it creates a separate cost you have to pay after you've cast the spell. On balance this is also a good double edged sword since it hurts you in the case of Helm of Awakening and the like.

Tainted AEther is pretty good against Animar, Soul of Elements, but otherwise feels like a silver bullet.

Moat doesn't affect cEdh decks, almost ever. I mean Sword of Feast and Famine gets hurt a bit, etc. Same thing goes for Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Sphere of Safety. These cards are neither prison nor stax, just pillow fort.

"Damage Mitigation" isn't stax/prison either, just more pillow fort.

City of Solitude and War's Toll aren't "Stax" in a conventional sense (War's Toll is very close), but they are much closer to combo protection. Rule of Law or Ethersworn Canonist are real options for "Casting Stax". Nevermore and Gideon's Intervention are considered removal though.

Karmic Justice is just considered protection. It is in the same vein as Greater Auramancy, Privileged Position, Sterling Grove, and Asceticism.

That leaves you with the following real stax/prison effects.

Mystic Remora

Rhystic Study

War's Toll

Tainted AEther

Now, let's say all of these were efficient stax elements, like Stasis, Winter Orb, Armageddon, and Nether Void (Similar Average CMC)

Okay, would your deck be stax? No, it would have a few stax cards. Would it be prison? No though it can pull off one.

Now, lets go back to reality. You run 4 cards, of which Mystic Remora/Rhystic Study are may costs, and so can't pull off a prison, and War's Toll doesn't affect many decks. It can stop a bit of disruption, which is powerful as an effect, but it does set up a prison without other cards. Think how good it would be with The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, if they pay any upkeep costs, they tap all their lands, and their mana disappears by their main phase. But you don't run it for that.

Finally, the best Prison/Stax piece you run, Tainted AEther, which can affect a few very specific decks, and slow them down a turn or two. If you ran 6-10 of these silver bullets, and tutored them up dependent on the situation at hand.

To sum everything up, you run 4 stax peices, of which two can't set up prisons, one doesn't in this deck, and one that could, but is a silver bullet. You are not Stax nor are Prison.

TheDevicer on Command Zone Flickering?

To add to what enpc wrote, if you're really somehow looking to brew jank where you want to counter your commander to just get cast triggers, you could always run effects like Nether Void that counter spells. That way you get the cast trigger and can immediately send your commander back to the command zone.

For the record, I think that's a horrible idea, but it's doable if you really want some jank in your life.

Other than that, if you want to do something similar to benefit from enter the battlefield abilities, you may want to consider running free sac outlets like Viscera Seer, Phyrexian Altar, etc. That way you can kill your own commander whenever you want so that you can recast them.

That deck is simply awesome, it can do so much and use my favourite colors. I made my own version of it, I'm highly inspired by yours, but there are some cards that I simply prefer and/or don't fit my budget.

So no Moat, The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, Ravages of War Nether Void.

Instead I've added No Mercy, Vile Consumption, Catastrophe.

Could Painful Quandary be a good replacement for Nether Void and Island Sanctuary for Moat?
