Reliquary Tower Discussion
9 hours ago
Profet93, sorry for my late reply. Journey to Eternity Flip is just a tad slow for the deck and we aren't really in need of a ton of reanimation. Bitterblossom as it does establish the lock it doesn't do anything else other than pressure the ad nauseum deck a bit and I personally feel Meren of Clan Nel Toth establishes the lock more reliably. Reliquary Tower I do agree its a card to consider but I just havent found a great need for it. Mana Web it may be a card I actually consider however the ability to tap in response does leave me skeptical of it.

As much as I like milling, it doesn't do much for the board, maybe if I play Phenax I would commit to mill more.
As for Startled Awake Flip, I Love the flavor of it ! but as its playability goes, not really... realistically I pay mana to mill 13 cards with ability to get it back to my hand after at least one turn delay, and I develop nothing on board, where for 9 mana I could kick Rite of Replication and get 5 Grave Titans with ETB effects :D and what better card to ramp me up to 9 mana, than... Dowsing Dagger Flip I mean it's so easy to flip, and you get 3 mana of any one color.
Yep Impersonator is awesome, but Body Double give me access to creatures in graveyard, and if my opponent won't find a way to cheat that Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger into play, I will gladly cheat it from his graveyard :D
If I can just squeeze in one more colorless ahhhh.. one more utility land, the thing is I can't add too many colorless mana sources beacause of Lazav casting cost, but Mirrorpool looks great, maybe i will swap it with Reliquary Tower.
Thanks for the suggestions :)

I don't have so much experience with cEDH but here is my 2 cents....
Journey to Eternity is low on the curve and easy to flip in the deck.
If your mana base allows it, maybe a Reliquary Tower so necro won't get lonely.
Lastly another maybe card could be Mana Web. I know you have carpet of flowers to help deal with blue, but Mana web + Urborg is useful at preventing instant speed interaction (barring mana dorks and artifact ramp).

Also add a Reliquary Tower. Try also using more dual named lands, shock lands, check lands, scry lands, and fetch lands.

Depending on who you're playing against, you might want more 5 colour lands like City of Brass or Mana Confluence so you can cast your opponents spells, since the last rule change lets you tap for off colour mana.
Otherwise, you might want to consider Consecrated Sphinx, since you're in blue, Reliquary Tower works quite well with this card, and Tolaria West lets you tutor any of your situational lands or 0 mana spells up.
We can't all afford an Imperial Seal. Lol. Well, online it is 1 ticket, but in paper.....

Mostly I don't use those because I don't need unlimited hand size. Sure, they might be useful in some situations. But more often than not I am using my Control cards in between my turns and I have enough room to draw back up without worrying about discarding.
It does happen sometimes that I discard, but just as often as it is something important, it is something along the lines of an extra land or an Eldrazi Titan. Nothing to fuss over.
For the tower itself, I try to avoid as many non-blue lands as I can, because the deck obviously needs its islands. If I were to run either, it would clearly be the Mana rock because I can cast a great number of them in one turn. Only one land per turn though.
However, I tend to have much stronger Mana Rocks than the Vessel, so it hardly seems necessary. In fact, I daresay that if only for the no maximum hand size clause, Spellbook would be just as sufficient because it is a free cast. Or Venser's Journal for a better effect at a bit of a cost increase.
Is that a sufficient reason as to why not those?
Again, I'd love to hear more as to why you might disagree. Anything to improve my Azami deck! Thanks!

Hey, great deck, Azami is very fun.
It's obliviously very high end here I'm wondering why you choose not to play the three powerful Farie Wizards: Glen Elendra Archmage, Vendilion Clique and Sower of Temptation? Reliquary Tower and Thought Vessel are also missing? Ways to have no maximum hand size are broken with Azami's draw.
My only criticism is the Avg CMC is pretty high which is not good with a Control deck. Do you really need all the high CMC cards like the two Eldrazi Titans, Enter the Infinite, Omniscience, Time Stretch, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Deadeye Navigator and Great Whale? These cards can be powerful, but most of them you want to cheat into play not hard cast them. I don't think they're helping enough with control and the strategy of drawing cards with Wizards and Azami.
