Overburden Discussion

You might be missing Overburden and Rising Waters but I like the plan.

Overburden would be great here, since you're not running a ton of creatures.

Magus of the Tabernacle can slow your opponents down immensely.

Propaganda, Collective Restraint, Burning Sands, AEther Barrier, Pendrell Mists, Overburden, Smoke, Mudslide, Crawlspace, Meishin, the Mind Cage, and possibly AEther Flash could all be good, depending on your meta and list. The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale is likely the best, but is typically out-of-budget for most players. Combine those with some wraths, and you should be set to survive until you can combo out. Without seeing your deck though, all of this is kinda a shot in the dark.

Hey thanks VesuvanDoppelbanger, I've been thinking about Sakura-Tribe Scout & Skyshroud Ranger for a while. Just haven't gotten a chance to get my hands on them. I definitely want to test them out. Overburden sounds hilarious, and I'm definitely getting my hands on a Storm Cauldron.

Can't wait to test these out. Thanks.

Winterblast on Stax, the magic cure

I don't think Llawan, Cephalid Empress or Fog Bank are worth playing, you could also remove Wall of Denial...you have 40 life, so aggro isn't as much of a problem as it is when playing stax in other formats. Most aggro decks also have some combo included in case they run against too many protective permanents they can't remove. I don't think a card that is "just a good blocker" has any value in realistic matchups.

I would replace Crawlspace with Ensnaring Bridge because it's more effective (and your commander can always attack after you draw your card for the turn). maybe think about removing the artifacts that have activated abilities completely if you want to play Stony Silence and add Null Rod for an additional card with the same effect. Overburden seems a bit odd because it helps the opponents against Winter Orb and Static Orb - it's a great card, but only if your mana denial plan is based on bouncing/destroying lands instead of having them stay tapped. If you go for land bouncing I can recommend Mana Breach (super effective! you could get rid of Arcane Laboratory because mana breach also punishes players for playing too many spells per turn), Land Equilibrium, Ward of Bones, Words of Wind and Sunder.

In general I think it's best to focus on one or two types of lockdown and build around these. If you do a bit of this and a bit of that everything is there but weak. I would say the tapping locks are the easiest to escape because you leave everything intact and only disable certain permanent types...if the tapping card is gone, everything works again. The most effective locks are those that constantly make you lose cards permanently, for example Mana Vortex, Smokestack, Possessed Portal. You have to choose what suits your playing style best and then focus on that plan with your whole deck.

Winterblast on making a Group-Slug Chaos deck

I would say Norin, as we have a Norin deck here that is really good. It relies less on all these spells with high mana costs though. Weak points are Overburden and Torpor Orb...

I have really been picking the deck up over the last couple months, plus had some more money/time to test.

Stranglehold, Academy Rector, In the Eye of Chaos, Kismet, Land Tax, plus Enchanted Evening/Aura Thief. OK now that I look at it there are quite a few cards I want to test. I don't know what your meta is like, but with mine Delaying Shield works wonders, As well as Overburden. As well there are quite a few decks that Containment Priest stops from working, so I'm giving her a try.
