Sisay toolbox, packed with lots of reactive card that help control the board and crawl up to victory.

This deck is an optimized deck. Piloting around legendary permanents adn Planeswalkers with useful + or - abilites, not for their ultimate. And sneaky combo for the win

In early game, simply build the board with dorks and rocks to fix our mana base. We need every color online. Dorks usualy only add G, but we can fix it using lots of signets. Try to build find the Citadel ASAP, either find it via Sisay or hard cast it from our hand and start storming!

The deck is a toolbox reactive deck. Most of time we wait for our opponent to play things and we find a solution for that. So keeping mana for sisay activations is important. If nothing happens in turn cycle, then we can find something we need for our board.

The plan is to win with CITADEL COMBO. First step is to flash in Teferi, Time Raveler via sisay on opponent endturn. It hardly to be countered except by Stifle effect. Basically we will win on our turn without any disruption from others.

We must sure the combo doesn't stop cos we topdeck a land. I put a lot spells that help us draw or shuffle library to avoid this combo fissle.

The plan B strategy is to go off with TAINTED JACE combo.

While we build our combo, mostly we will play control style. Answering any threat with our toolbox sisay activation. Countering spell with dedicated card that say 'counter x spell' is bad for this deck too, make the combo fissle. So, card like Venser, Shaper Savant , Red Elemental Blast , Dromar's Charm really come in handy with other mode that they can choose.

I try to breakdown cards that give great support for the deck. Start with legendaries. Each legendaries has a function. Low cmc legends can help in early game to pump sisay +2 power imidietly when she is out and start to gain value.
  1. Gaddock Teeg : Help us control brutal spells. Somehow we cant play PW bcos of him but we can take another route with sisay tutor.
  2. Lavinia, Azorius Renegade : Control the artifac rocks players, stops few mechanic like cascade, omniscience, and few free spells/0cmc spells.
  3. Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons : She is pretty good in early games, kill dorks, make strong blocker for our PW and some pillowfort. Lategame she is just a sisay booster.
  4. Lazav, the Multifarious : He is pretty good. Pump sisay early, can surveil if we get landstuck on citadel storm, and can be any control creatures in our grave if needed.
  5. Anafenza, the Foremost : a creature graveyard hate. Bye2 Meren, Karador, Flashhulk.
  6. Kambal, Consul of Allocation : Great against storm deck, and gain us life for citadel activations.
  7. Linvala, Keeper of Silence : shuts down dorks and few broken commander like Thrasios.
  8. Ashiok, Dream Render : shuts GY and tutors. Helps mill ourself in citadel landstuck condition.
  9. Narset, Parter of Veils : shuts draw shenanigans. Helps filters topdeck in citadel landstuck condition.
  10. Domri, Anarch of Bolas : Pump sisay by 3!, creature removal, mana booster. Perfect!
  11. Dack Fayden : Artifac steal, draw on board helps citadel storm landstuck.
  12. Vraska, Golgari Queen : Draw on board, abrupt decay.
  13. Teferi, Time Raveler : spot removal + draw on board. Sealing wincon.
  14. Azusa, Lost but Seeking : Help sisays power early game. Also make citadel storm smoother, get rid of two lands.

Few cards i need to mention :

  1. Force of Vigor : helps us fight against stax!
  2. Swords to Plowshares , Nature's Claim : spot removal. also help us gain life to continue citadel storm.
  3. Path to Exile , Sakura-Tribe Elder : simple useful spells that help us shuffle library if get landstuck. Same is true with fetchlands

I'm testing with Pramikon, Sky Rampart from c19 over Supreme Verdict . I dont know i need a boardwipe or not. At some point its fine topdecking Verdict when citadel storming, we didnt need creature anymore to finish the game, but we also not disrupted by oppenents creature either. Its like 4 cmc life loss 'do nothing'. But the wall is 3 color legendary which pumps sisay early, its protect our lifecount, and can point combat damage to another player if aggro deck is around.


Jace, Wielder of Mysteries + Tainted Pact I choose tainted pact over demonic consultation because its a lot safer. Pact mechanic is way better only for 1mana difference. We dont have to mention a card and not to overdigging to find something in urgent need.


Bolas's Citadel + Sensei's Divining Top + Aetherflux Reservoir The main combo is the citadel. Once citadel is out, we can storm out many spell from our deck. So cheap draw spells, mana ramps spell like explore or sakura-tribe elder, and PW draw ability is really helps when we topdeck a land.

Some cards will shut down our strategy, so be aware of Cursed Totem , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , Ashiok, Dream Render , Grafdigger's Cage , Rule of Law and any tax effect

Im open to any sugestion. Like a lot. To make this better.
