Rayne, Academy Chancellor Discussion

SmudgeDredd on Ideas for a Rayney day, ...

Hi all,

Fairly new to the EDH format and looking to brew something with Rayne, Academy Chancellor . I'm not sure though what the deck could do. My playgroup is casual but they run some high power decks so I'd like a build that can hold it's own.

I'm not too keen on a self-mill win, no ill will if you do I just personally like feeling I've beaten my opponents is all. Infinite combos and things like that I'm happy to do.

So I'm wondering what ways can you brew with her? I don't want to spent a fortune. Luckily I've already got a Isochron Scepter and As Foretold which seem useful.

What ways can I go with this deck?

I've thought wizard tribal, voltron and/or artifacts. Are there efficent ways to direct opponents spells to you? Could you load your deck with enchantments like Frogify to disrupt your opponent's game?

Any ideas welcome! Especially mono blue win cons. Thank you!

Where the hell are Naban, Dean of Iteration and Panharmonicon ?

Alongside Arcane Adaptation , I'd suggest also Xenograft for the same effect.

Lullmage Mentor is a must in a wizard deck, alongside Voidmage Prodigy for control purposes.

Izzet Chronarch , Salvager of Secrets and Archaeomancer rebuy your spells! Twice, with Panharmonicon and Naban !

Barrin, Master Wizard loves tokens, as you can sacrifice them to him and remove threats! Galecaster Colossus is maybe the strongest Wizard in tribal commander decks.

Beguiler of Wills loves of you have a high creature count.

Descendant of Soramaro almost lets you stack your deck on need.

Rayne, Academy Chancellor draws lots of cards.

Serendib Sorcerer saves you from tight spots and it's politic.

capshanks01 Thank you for the comment and the suggestion, I do appreciate it. Could you also suggest a creature I exchange out of my deck to add in Rayne, Academy Chancellor? Thanks

I made an updated list


I'll update this list here soon, but if you have time you may take a look:)

Saprazzan Heir looks pretty pretty good :D

Rayne, Academy Chancellor seems good but what to cut? (From the new list) Rhystic Study seems more reliable

Thanks for all the help !

I found some interesting creatures to considerate.

Card Draw:

Rayne, Academy Chancellor maybe?

Runic Armasaur maybe for the opponents fetch lands.

Saprazzan Heir I use this in my build..is fun, almost all the time I get at least 3 cards or some damage and the table

I really hope that Ravnica Allegiance brings us good things for ezuri.

Being a fellow "enchantment tribal" deck player, I know that this type of deck is rather slow to get going, which requires certain cards to help keep you in the game. My suggestions will be based around that, as well as the list of opponents you gave on your thread. If you have any questions on my suggestions or what to take out, I'd be happy to go into detail with you.

As for slowing down other players and keeping you in the game, Overburden is a rather unknown card but surprisingly effective. If not dealt with, it can leave players at 3 or 4 lands or stop them from playing creatures for a time. Personally, this card won me a game against an Ezuri, Renegade Leader deck because I got it out early enough.
Solitary Confinement is another underrated card. While the drawbacks are significant, the benefits are equally as potent. As long as you have some sort of draw engine, you will be fine.
Island Sanctuary goes in the same category as Solitary Confinement, providing you with significant creature evasion that's worth the price.
Energy Field is also an underrated card, especially with Estrid being able to ult and bring it back if needed. It's good early game to protect you and late game it's an added nuisance to your opponents.
One of the best draw engines I've found for this deck is Rayne, Academy Chancellor. If Anything you control or you is targeted, you can draw a card for each time. And with your commander's -1 ability being able to enchant her, you can draw 2 cards every time. It's a deterrent, while also a powerful draw engine when people want to get rid of some annoying enchantments.

As for dealing with the list of opponents you gave, these cards will deal with them to a point while also being just a general good addition to the deck:
1. Izzet Partner Politics: Difficult to suggest a card here as this can mean numerous things.
2. Yidris Cascade: Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Rule of Law, Eidolon of Rhetoric, Dovescape, Humility, Solitary Confinement, Maze of Ith, Vanishing.
3. Atraxa: Solemnity, Humility
4. Krenko: Damping Matrix, Humility, Overburden, Leyline of Singularity, Dueling Grounds
5. Sigarda: Bonds of Mortality, Humility
6. Zacama: Containment Priest, Humility, Overburden
7. Breya: Aura of Silence, Damping Matrix, Suppression Field (Affects planeswalkers too, so be aware), Solitary Confinement.
8.Edgar: Not familiar with vampire opponents, but Humility, Solitary Confinement, Dueling Grounds can help.
9.Shu yun: Humility, Maze of Ith, Vanishing, Solitary Confinement, Energy Field

Other cards that are worth including: Carpet of Flowers, Dawn's Reflection, Stasis, Fertile Ground, Rhystic Study, Mystic Remora, Sylvan Library, Overgrowth, Verdant Haven, Wild Growth, Supreme Verdict, Terminus, Boseiju, Who Shelters All.

scotchtapedsleeves I'll take any and all suggestions. I especially like the Protean Hulk and Lim-Dul's Vault, but I'm not running any Auras right now, so I'm not sure how helpful Rayne, Academy Chancellor will be beyond a pseudo-Privileged Position. Thanks for checking it out!
