Archwizard on Prepare Your Salami for the Azami

2 weeks ago


Snap It's a very solid pick for Azami and it will be included in my maybeboard once I get around to writing the primer. I just don't have the space for it mainboard right now.

Power Artifact Problem is that the only really meaningful interaction it has in our deck is with Grim Monolith and making infinite colorless really doesn't do much for us. It has the potential to be really good in the correct scenarios, but most of the time it's a dead draw.

Gilded Lotus This is kind of an interesting one 'cause it has great synergy with Transmute Artifact to get Paradox Engine and by itself it's not a bad rock either. Currently my slots will not allow for it, but it may be good enough in the future.

Memory Jar If Azami was a more storm oriented deck then I might consider it, but I don't think it's all that great for her as of now.

Patron Wizard Yes, unfortunately he is still too slow and his ability conflicts too much with Azami's.

Academy Ruins The ability is cute and all but we'd much rather have islands due to High Tide and Back to Basics

If it's wizard tribal, definitely check out Galecaster Colossus and Patron Wizard. Riptide Chronologist, Riptide Director, Beguiler of Wills, Voidmage Husher, and Voidmage Prodigy could also be good.

Rocketman988 on Azami Combo EDH

Hey! Thanks for the great list. I've recently taken out my old wizard tribal deck and started making it competitive.
Your list is quite optimized and I am having difficulty deciding which of the non-budget cards I have from my deck are worth including.
The options include:
Patron Wizard
Snapcaster Mage
Pact of Negation
Cryptic Command
Academy Ruins
Reliquary Tower
Minamo, School at Water's Edge
Riptide Laboratory

I have played the deck rather mid-range and am new to combo, so I'm not sure (despite being good) which of these cards are too slow. In addition, which cards of the list do you feel are most replaceable?

That's the reason I decided to go the ETB effects route. Seemed like someone always had a board wipe just as I was starting to get somewhere. As for adding a ward of Bones, I don't like the idea of having to limit myself to limit my opponents. I'd rather play something like Propaganda.

If the second ability is the way you want to go then, these cards are definitely worth considering..

Patron Wizard

Yeah they only have to pay one mana but who says you can't activate this ability more than once? They cast a spell you really don't like? Tap 5 wizards and make them pay an extra 5 mana.

Supreme Inquisitor

Exiling five cards in response to a tutor and one of the five you exile is what they were tutoring for just feels amazing.

Dramatic Reversal

Having this card imprinted on an Isochron Scepter means all your nonland permanents untaps which means with Supreme Inquisitor you can exile everyone's library

Kiyomeii on An illusion? What are you hiding? (Tier 1 - STAX)

@velesese : This version is highly tuned for multiplayer, if feel like a 1v1 list would also focus on a bit removal like Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares and some cheap counterspells like Arcane Denial and Spell Pierce (or other ones like this) so you can get em off under sphere effects... if you're allowed to play her 1v1 you are going to have a lot of fun while your opponents won't :)

(also, Cursecatcher , Patron Wizard , Spiketail Hatchling and Judge's Familiar will become that much more powerfull in 1v1 setups... )

Aether Vial might also get you ahead easier in 1v1.

UsmanA on I'm beginner. I need help ...

I run an all blue wizard deck, occasionally I throw black into it. I've considered an a red blue wizard deck, but never made one. Some cards you may want to look at if you haven't are Grim Lavamancer , Soul-Scar Mage, Izzet Chemister. I'd suggest Patron Wizard in most Wizard decks, but it may be hard in a fast red/blue deck. Three islands may make your mana situation not ideal. I picked up a couple of Docent of Perfection  Flip for my wizard deck last week. It may work even better in a deck splashed with red.
