I've been wanting to do an Azorious control deck for some time now. As much as I've wanted to run the deck with Grand Arbiter Augustin IV , I just couldn't help myself when I saw the new card, Azor, the Lawbringer . I want to see what I can come up with to play a game of Wolf Says. Thus far it's taking a very Death & Taxes feel

Some Notes
1) I am handicapping myself by eschewing the use of tutors in this deck. Some in my playgroup feel I rely too heavily on them. So I am presently challenging myself to keep (the more traditional) tutors out of the deck. Land Tax is fine, as are fetch lands, but no Mystical Tutor , Enlightened Tutor , Personal Tutor , or Idyllic Tutor for me.

2) My original deck list had Knowledge Pool + Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir as a filibuster combo. After seeing it in play, I decided to remove Knowledge Pool for the sake of keeping my friends. It's one thing to disrupt the tempo of the game, it's another thing entirely to lock everyone out of the game. Yes, I kow there's ways around it, but they generally have to be in play already.

If you have any suggestions, feel free to comment. I would love ideas on what to add and why, as well (and especially) what to clip, and why. And of course, if you like the deck, or if you like shutting down Magic games, !


Updates Add

Two powerful new adds that I couldn't resist putting in:
In: +1 Force of Negation +1 Smothering Tithe
Out: -1 Render Silent -1 Thassa, God of the Sea
It was between Render Silent and Cryptic Command to swap out for Force of Negation, but I am going to stick by the versatility of the command. As for Thassa ... I actually kindof forgot she was in the deck. We'll see how this goes.
