Oath of Scholars Discussion

Daeladus on The Commander Social Experiment: Azami Group Hug

I had the same idea for Azami. The only difference is I try exploiting her draw with 1 drop wizard dorks. Using weird artifacts/enchantments such as Lantern of Insight to help those who are land flooded/starved and Oath of Scholars makes for interesting games.

I like these sort of different ideas where you take an established meta character and go sideways with them.

+1 from me!

CSSNiobic on Lazav, What the **** are you Doing?

When I initially started building this deck, I put a lot of mill into it, but I opted for a much more reactive deck instead. I'm relying on other players to put stuff into the graveyard for Lazav, and plan on spending the game trying to figure out who's got the wildest combo and whether I can pull it off too. The rest of the deck is there to make the game much more chaotic and force players to make choices (Standstill, Oath of Scholars) or disrupt plans (Whispering Madness, Assault Suit) la House Dimir. Anything along these lines would be helpful!

Here are 60+ cards that affect each player. Find the ones that don't hurt your deck and give them away.

poorpinkus on Lazav is a lazy bum!

Have you thought of using discard cards such as Despise to get rid of opponents' big creatures? I feel like that could be useful

Pillow fort cards and cards that make people want to attack other people instead sound like good inclusions, have you thought of putting in any of the Vows? Vow of Flight and Vow of Malice act as pseudo-pacifisms without making the person you used it on angry.

Depending on the playgroup, politics is a good bet, and since your deck requires on other people's decks to be good people will know what they are most likely up against. Political cards will definitely be a good bet since your commander isn't extremely scary, but has potential, so making deals will make people happy, and they won't be too afraid.

Some cards I'd recommend that work with politics but also help you: Windfall, Jace's Archivist (although that could put a target on you) and Oath of Scholars. Basically, if you barter with people by allowing them to draw cards, they could discard creatures to help you out, and they may not attack you as often.
