Capt_telnet on the Evil Azami that will get me banned from my lgs

5 months ago

Hello my dude, I also have an Azami list that everyone hates and can give you some advice.

If you want to win you are probably going to need one of these three cards: Dream Halls You have more cards than anyone else, so you get the most value out of it. Can also be used to cast Azami from the command zone. (It's like 20$), Mind Over Matter This goes infinite with Azami out for lab man win. Can also be used for mana generation, fun with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx ( It's about 20$), or Intruder Alarm The value here is completely insane, you draw buttloads of cards. (It's like 18$). None of them are cheap, but its hard to have a fast lab man win unless you get one of those out. If you want to go really nuts, Paradox Engine is also in this category of "cards that win you the game almost immediately" but it costs 50$ and you need to run mana rocks to make it work optimally.

As for your wizards, you might want to switch a few for better options. Timestream Navigator , Sower of Temptation , Galecaster Colossus are all great and under 2$. Inspired Sprite lets you draw 2 every time you cast a wizard. If your a real monster Beguiler of Wills is disgusting, and if you have Intruder Alarm out... well, you just take every creature as it enters the battlefield. Archaeomancer is also just really good. And Temporal Adept and Portal Mage seems right up your alley.

On the more expensive end you have cards like Patron Wizard Which makes grown men cry. Glen Elendra Archmage Which combos quite well with Sage of Fables or Metallic Mimic in play. Fatespinner which helps keep people from attacking you. Baral, Chief of Compliance can also help reduce the cost of your counter-spells.

You might want to upgrade your counter-spell list aswell, Negate , Abjure , Arcane Denial , and Forbid are some that are cheap and good.

Lastly, mana rocks. You definitely need some. Mana rocks are the only way your going to be able cast wizards and still have mana open to counter spells. The faster Azami hits the table the better, and shes costs 5. After playing Azami for years, I can tell you the primary reason I lose is not having mana fast enough (that and everyone ganging up on me for running hard control). I'm only running 8 mana rocks in my list if you count cost reducers, and I'm honestly thinking about pushing that number up to 10 or 11.

Here's a link to my list, maybe you'll see something there you like: Nerds. I can confirm that my playgroup hates it.

Thanks a lot, DrukenReaps and multimedia! I love Linessa, Zephyr Mage 's art and obscurity, but you are correct that Alexi, Zephyr Mage would be more effective in this build. Plus her art is awesome and she is also pretty obscure, so I am going to go ahead and make the switch. Of the 3 people that gave me recommendations, all 3 recommended that I drop the planeswalkers, so I am going to do that and ditch the cards that fetch them too. Definitely need Tidespout Tyrant and Temporal Adept in there! I meant to include both of them from the start, but totally forgot about them. Thanks for reminding me!

Hey, bounce of your opponent's permanents is a fine strategy, but consider expanding on this strategy? More bouncing or blinking of your own creatures with ETB abilities to then get more value from them.

Budget cards ($5 or less each) to consider adding:


Cards to consider cutting:

  • 2x Island
  • Aeon Chronicler
  • Burnished Hart
  • Jeering Homunculus
  • Mu Yanling
  • Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage
  • Sturmgeist
  • Soramaro, First to Dream
  • Disappearing Act
  • Dream Fracture
  • Fumble
  • Vision Skeins
  • Split Decision
  • Prosperity
  • Reality Strobe
  • Grasping Current
  • Rhythmic Water Vortex
  • Concentrate
  • Argentum Armor
  • Coveted Jewel
  • Skullcage

I offer more advice if you want it, including explanations about cards I'm suggesting to add/cut. Good luck with your deck.

While technically not a wizard itself Docent of Perfection  Flip makes wizard tokens and when it transforms gives all your wizards a lord effect kind of buff. Arcane Artisan can help you cheat out some of your higher cost wizards as tokens and adds some more card draw. Temporal Adept can let you bounce any one permanent as long as you keep mana for it. Also since you are a mono-color deck consider Caged Sun and maybe Gauntlet of Power so your mana is doubled.

thom-le, Great suggestions... going to pickup them up and give them a go. Temporal Adept is a upgrade over Time Elemental for sure. I noticed you run Silent Arbiter in your KILL AND RUN deck. I've had someone suggest Crawlspace as another option for a similar effect. You could use Silas Renn, Seeker Adept to keep bringing the effect back.

Very cool deck, I like that there are no endless loops in. Maybe consider Temporal Adept over Time Elemental , Surrakar Spellblade over Lu Xun, Scholar General if you want to have the card draw. With Lazav my personal favorite mana ramp is Dowsing Dagger  Flip. Cavern Harpy is nice for protection. It's great to see how your deck works with that budget.

Althought I've build a more heavy budget deck, there are also ideas you might be interested: KILL AND RUN
